Let's face facts



It may be Friday, but that doesn't necessarily mean there's been any progress. It's still clowns, as far as I can see.

Next time you see me, buy me a drink and ask me to tell you the story about the political crony, the crack whores, the gun and the dildos. It's a pip.

Wait-- isn't that clown Ronald Reagan?

Oh, you tease, leaving us hanging like that.

Kirby, I'll tease you some more--I dealt with the crony and the crack whores later that day, and from what I found out the scene when the officers arrived was like the VU song "Sister Ray", without the sailor and transvestite, but with a pervert septuagenarian instead.

Johnny, Ronzo was a clown, but not that clown.

I'm glad my parents live so close to you. I intend to spend plenty of time at the COmpound this summer listening to your stories. SHould I buy a bigger bottle of Thai whiskey?

Bubs-
Have you seen the movie "Brick?" The song Sister Ray plays over the closing credits. It's long been a favorite of mine.

An old friend took a job in Springfield, Illinois back in the late eighties or so. He told me that there was an open mike at some tavern where the couple of dozen semi-hip people in Springfield gathered to hear bad renditions of Neil Young's Heart of Gold and such. In the middle of it, a couple of guys got up and did a full-length acoustic version of Sister Ray. At some point, a couple of people bum-rushed the stage to try to get them to stop. There were fisticuffs, tears, etc. It was beautiful.

Johnny, that is awesome! I wonder if one of those guys was Splotchy...

Lulu, I can't wait!

I'm mesmerized by the idea of clowns and dildos. We miss you when your bizzy.

Johnny Yen,

"Wait-- isn't that clown Ronald Reagan?"

He looks more like Michael Gambon.

Bubs,

Cheer up, you're scaring me with all these clown pics.

Love the sarcasm.

PS: I'll break open the wallet proudly to hear you spin this yarn, child. In May, every-single-word. Capisce?! Capisce.
