talk about finding some ways to respond to new situ'z- like applying a damp cloth to wounds
same cloth, different wound- different reaction
self as cloth?
It is hard to make plans for a place iIve never been. A plan about the bottom of the ocean? or a coral reef? try and try!
Rochester still! A comfortable street, a cute couple. a door that closes without sound. Just enough sound. Gardenias and no but NO litter. Oh wait, that plastic bag did fall out of the van.
A tall man with a hat sings from the window- top of the house- bringing the bird to him. Softer thunder than i've ever heard, rehearsal for a real storm-trauma.
It is helpful to imagine a bridge. It is helpful to surrender to walking over it, not knowing what is on the other side. You might bring a crossword puzzle for the 20 minutes where the only part of your body that will move is your hand. There had better be a pen in that hand. You had better listen to 'Giggy Smile' by Faust over and over again or you will never forgive yourself. You had better see resemblance in faces you'd never guessed. You should guess and guess and guess.
Some said to me: you can go to New York City wearing "A fuggen snowsuit and flippers, yellin' about Porno" and nobody will give you a second glance. Or light yourself on fire just walking down the street.
Only Buddhist Monks get any attention for that.
You should find out if Sociologists over 30 who are still interested in Youth Culture are just kidding themselves.
You should check out the Wetlands in Pennsylvania and New York.
You should continue getting so excited that you nearly pee in your shorts.
I am writing fortune cookie lines.
I PROMISE NOT TO EAT SARDINES IN THE VAN IF DARREN PROMISES NOT TO OFFER ME A "LINE OF MEAT DUST" TO SNORT WHEN HE IS FINISHED EATING BEEF JERKY. (and pick up your wrappers)
I am finding it hard to write about the shows themselves. Here comes the BIG rain.
I am going inside to wake those dudez UP.
Maybe I can get someone else to write about the shows. Are you interested in hearing "how the show went"? Do you want to see the spreadsheet about LP sales?
We have sold No Tees.
MORE SOON< LOVE TEAL>
p.s. I am going to try and get a tour of Cabinet Magazine HQ in Brooklyn!!!!!
