West End Girls

and East End boys...

well Hollywood and SONY Pictures are surely wimps..they canceled a satire movie about North Korea and Kim Jong Il Jr. due to "threats"...apparently Kim Jong can't take a joke and Hollywood cowered..the actors got body guards and canceled interviews...In America!! wimps



wimps!

speaking of wimps, wow things are gettin' weird on the Westside of Santa Barbara..over at Bo Henry's Bar...I was waiting and watching for some real news on Cam Sanchez's alleged DUI, but only Bo Henry's Bar owner Robert Eringer is claiming Cam was busted...citing some sources tht SBPD, Eringer says Cam was DUI and smelling of whiskey at 2:00 AM a few weeks ago...wife issues.. I have not found any clues yet

but I've had a few women drive me to drink but I got over it...how many puking headaches can one man stand?? geez..so girls can do whatever they want now and I don't care...fuck me kill me..it doesn't matter anymore..took a long time to see the light...but I see it..I see you now, West End girls


Lance kisses Boy Robert's hand!!
 

anyway, Bo Henry's Bar is getting raked over coals on YELP, a review site..people are calling it dirty, creepy, overpriced and smelly...hey B.O. Henry's..HAAHAHAAHA!!
and the bartenders are rude, too

and Poor Robert is trying to answer all the bad reviews..it is hilarious!! haahaah! what a businessman! but there werea few conspicuous good reviews at the end (employees??)

here's an example review:

Alan Q.
Santa Barbara, CA
7/30/2014 Came here on a saturday night at around 7:30pm. The place was dirty and service was not friendly. I left quickly after having one drink.

There are so many better bars on area, I will not come back here.



Comment from Robert E. of Bo Henry's
Business Owner 9/7/2014 Fraudulent. We take pride in being clean and smelling good. Our health inspector was blown away…

what's the story

morning glory

Santa Barbara Police Chief Cam Sanchez arrested for DUI??

well this is certainly interesting on all levels...Bo Henry's bar owner Robert Eringer accusing SB Police chief of DUI....if it's true Sanchez's career is over; if it's false Eringer's career is over..


LANCE EYES CAM

and it's a fact that these boozer dudes have a vendatta against the chief...as far back as Wendy and Travis...how dare the cops bust Wendy' friends for DUI!!

so according to Eringer's blog, the "source" in the SBPD says Cam was arrested for DUI a few weeks ago....thanks for the tip from a reader!

but where do I start? Bo Henry's is shut down for a week due to serving to underage kids...and now Eringer accuses Cam Sanchez of DUI? well I've been checking the arrest reports and don't see Cam Sanchez there...
http://eringerreports.blogspot.com

so Eringer is perhaps in an alcoholic delusion???

stay tuned for this one!!

Blue Christmas

you'll be doin' alright, with your Christmas of white, but I'll have a blue, a  blue blue blue Christmas....

I remember one time I asked girls to paint one of their nipples blue.....I don't know why I asked them that but I did...so let's show some support for the Miramar gals and paint 'em blue again!
the next time I'm in Montecito, I wanna see some action..I wanna see the ladies  walking down the street, wearing nice sheer white blouses...don't wear a bra so I can see your blue nipples..ok??


 

I remember the old Miramar...the blue roofs...but now they're gone to the scrapheap of history...the whole fiasco started after the Miramar Hotel was sold to some cokehead from NewYork

then finally self-made billionaire Rick Caruso bought it and tried to rebuild..but he ran into too many planning commissioners and too many captains in Montecito and neighbors like Elaine who tried to stop him..shrinkage she said.. shrinkage...paint you nipples Blue, Elaine!!

so the Miramar property has stood still, vacant for what, 14 years or more??

then when I was going into SB, I saw the story poles they put up with orange tape -they should've used blue- and thought the project was finally moving forward, but the MPC is being stubborn again..why? what possible reason could they have for not wanting a project here..a new hotel...why would they delay it again???




Caruso can't play this game forever so somebody needs to bypass the Montecito Planning Commission and ok the new Miramar..the area is dead without it

as a matter of fact, the MPC should be disbanded...they are not business people apparently...they don't want the Miramar to be rebuilt obviously..so what do they want? why are they messing with people's futures???

I don't know..is it because a few uppity neighbors are against the project? they think the impacts will be too much on them? it's silly...



leaders make decisions and it is all too clear there are no leaders on the Montecito Planning Commission...some stupid old lady on the MPC wanted to know what the landscaping would be at the Miramar...really? is she really that stupid? read the blueprints, the plans..and one clueless guy is still puzzled by the parking!!

haven't we been through all this??? what's up with these dumb bitch-asses on the MPC?? these blue meanies?

Purple Haze

all in my brain....

what's this I see? a local bar loses its liquor license for five days for allowing a youngster in for GOD KNOWS WHAT...I read this in Noozhawk of all places! good job..

the bar is Bo Henry's...the westside dive and home to the stars..or wannabe stars..or washed up stars...Bo Henry's..where karaoke cajolling lost some conservatives their elections..where people who used to be hard-working Mexicans who hung out a Palmieri's now gotta deal with Hemingway stuff..


so this guy walks into a bar

ok we know that Mr Wimpy sold the bar to Sir Robert Eringer the guy who used to work for the Prince of Monaco and even Rupert Murdoch! and even Wendy at one low point...then he bought the bar and you know he invited me to check out some things at the bar once- artifacts or stuffed animals or whatever....naturally I declined figuring he might have Peter Lance waiting in the shadows, in a skinny tuxedo, all ready to investigate me! or kill me!

no, I don't hang with these boys because they drink too much...DUIs, black eyes, and pickled livers...you gotta grow up sometime boys

hahahaah!!

and if you check Bo Henry's website- it so alcoholic-centric- well it's a bar but to suggest that drinking oneself into oblivion is a healthy life choice, well maybe that's why the kid snuck in...for a healthful drink of vodka!! Grey Goose!!

if one is good, then two must be better!!

well I'm sure this happens all the time...fake IDs, kids slip into bars and the bars don't get caught, but this time they did...and Eringer blamed his staff and customers..the penalty was a $200 fine or 5-day liquor license suspension...he took the suspension to teach his customers and staff a lesson...uh oh..bad boss..the buck stops with the boss-the owner-not the staff or customers

but people go to bars and cocktail lounges to get drunk and hang with other barflies..they can forget themselves for a few hours at night...and then they drive home..why aren't barswhosell these spirits and encourage drinking -ENABLERS TO THE MAX- held accountable for allowing patrons to drive drunk?

five days without Bo Henry's?? where are these people gonna go? am I happy or in misery??

The River

I went down to the river, though I know the river is dry

riparian restoration..now there's a funny bunch of monkey business...I always read things like this...apparently led by UCSB forever students...grown-ups who can't thrive in the real world...these folks are on a mission to get rid of Arundo in the Santa Clara River bed..this story blurb was in the Independent...the UCSB guys are using high school kids to poison the river bed with glyphosate.....the reasoning is the arundo "chokes out" the native plants which is a catch phrase for the native cult..they got tons of little phrases for demonizing non-natives...alien organisms, invaders, bioinvasions, gnawing away at ecosystems, and so on...Invasion Biology is a pseudoscience, a reactionary movement rooted in the psychologies of racism and xenophobia..Invasion Biology-A Critique of a Pseudoscience exposes these frauds




and of course the restorations are supported by the big chemical companies...

they ignore dispersal by the birds! it's the same mindset that people have about their lawns...if they see a dandelion, they go crazy and have to kill it




it gets to the point of absurd these fools chasing their tails trying to beat Mother Nature...that castor bean plant keeps popping up for a reason!

arundo is simply a fast growing plant...if it's a problem. remove it once a year with bull dozers..but no matter what they do, it's gonna grow again...I've gone down to the river a few times to harvest the reeds..the bamboo shoots are long and I use them for my patented "Arundo Duster"...it's the only thing that lets me dust my ceilings! so buy one today: Mick's Arundo Duster..only $29.95!


Arundo Duster-only $29.95!
 
"The reed removers are taking down the plant either by spraying it with a federally approved herbicide, glyphosate"... federally approved, oh that's reassuring

basically, it's Round-Up..it's poison and it's not selective..and the more they use, the more resistance the invasives build up..there's plenty of info online about the harm it does to people amd animals...I stopped using Round-Up years ago..




some years ago they tried this approach at the Carpinteria Creek on a much smaller scale..some insipid nativists thought they'd plant natives, remove invasives and put up a sign telling me not to fish for steelhead or I'd end up in jail..well I was I jail once and once is enough...

this creek used to have a cool old wooden bridge, but today it's got the big iron arch..talk about over- kill!! city over-engineered it...but it's still a nice creek so I went down to check it out...looks like they gave up!

the natives ain't doing so hot...the weeds, the clovers are nice and green thanks to the rains...there's water in the creek but the only thing choking anything is the sycamore leaves in the creekbed....the native sycamores here are lovely, but they shed their leaves in winter..and there's lots of big sycamores here..there's some ivy..looks pretty but someone with a native dunce hat on thinks it's evil...

but it's clear that natives don't do well just because someone calls them native...survival of the fittest...adaptabilty is the key to survival...a simple concept lost on the Blue Oyster native cult

didn't see any fish..saw some litter from people..

litter is the biggest threat to riparian habitat..not species of "nonnatives"...

litter..plastic...junk that people throw into the creek for kicks..people screw up these creeks...nature brings all types of plants in from the wind and the willows..the animals transport seeds to the creeks..

but only man brings litter..and poison to the river

these dreams

go on when I close my eyes

I had a dream last night I was in LA, staying at a big hotel, then I was in a big arena, a big field, dancing around with an air guitar, wearing just a g-string..some chicks were laughing and pointing at me

I don't know what that was about but, hey it was dream! so I thought about some musical journeys I took over the years....




1960s- Earl Warren Showgrounds: Janis Joplin (I won tickets from KIST!!), Alice Cooper, Eric Burdon (never knew if Eric was gonna show up!) Doors, the Grass Roots! Jefferson Airplane...simply awesome at the height of rock n roll~1967 the vibe was so cool back then

thanks Earl!

 

SBJH-the Byrds

Cabrillo Bathhouse-Ernie and the Emperors...that big red Gibson and they had a hit with "Meet Me At the Corner"  we started a band after seeing them! 

UCSB-CSN and Y....acoustic guitars and harmonies

Aquarius Theater-the Doors in LA...LA WOMAN!!!

the Troubadour- I can't remember the name of the band, but they had an old guy on guitar and a beautiful young chick singer with shiny brown-black hair  and big brown eyes and red lips and mmmm...and they sang a song called "Child of Nature"...I was a kid watching her sing and fell instantly in love!

so in my early 20s, I decided to become a folk singer and played at bars and restaurants and coffee houses down the coast..Ventura- almost played at the BanDar....that club was just as weird and cool as can be..and I was gigging at the Rounders when the Bandar owner Johnny Mosby came in one night..he and wife Jonie had a few country hits....he asked if I'd play a gig over there I said yeah... but my manager wouldn't let me..he was afraid he'd lose customers!! hahahah..what a hot star I was..but had I played that gig, I could've become a big country star instead of a little pathetic blogger...pretty sad

in Goleta at the Midnight Mine Steakhouse...w/Brownwood and Barbara Long...oh yeah... and the Grateful Dead were supposed to show up one night and jam with us..they never made it...geez I coulda been a member of the Dead...and that wasn't coffee in my coffee cup, boys

1970s- Jesse Colin Young at UCSB gym...this cat was good

1970's- Vance or Towers...downtown Santa Barbara..really good SB duo...Glen Vance wrote the prettiest song called "the Presence of her Absence"...

1970s- Kinks at UCSB Robertson Gym...one of my fave concerts with the masters of pop/rock satire..Ray Davies and the boys

1970s-O'Jays, Commodores, Cool and the Gang....traveled one summer with the O'Jays tour because I 'm cool and I got soul.. a different town every night...crazy time

1970's Angel - traveled with Angel tour..a KISS knockoff...they sucked..I quit half-way thru the tour and flew back to LA on a big Delta jet with about ten people on it....coming into LA at night...whew, that was something I'll never forget...it was beautiful

1970s-Van Morrison and Leo Kottke at the Granada..Van was great but Leo stole the show

1970s-1980s Dave Mason, Loggins and Messina, Stephen Stills at the Santa Barbara County Bowl

1980s-Tom Waits at the Arlington..funny dude

quit folksinging and became a fry cook...quit cooking and became a career-minded responsible adult- made alot of money, bought tons of guitars, and quit that crazy scene

1980s- Suzanne Vega...downtown Santa Barbara at some club.. I snuck in during Suzanne's rehearsal with my camera..heard a few songs then some big dude kicked me out!

1990s-Richie Furay and Jim Messina at the old Feedstore...that was a fun place and I don't mean ping-pong type fun

2000s-

Iris Dement at SOHO..I love her!

Brian Wilson at the Lobero...probably my favorite concert..the pop genius doing all those songs..he was in excellent form with a great band...watching Brian do "Sail on Sailor" was..well it brought me to tears and chills

Odetta-at the Lobero..in her 80s and wheelchair bound, the folk legend sang some incredible songs with a piano player...I was awestruck

Bob Lind and Danny O'Keefe- at the Carp Theater..that was an obscure one but "Elusive Butterfly" and Springfield connection was cool...O'Keefe's a fantastic songman

Shaun Colvin- at the Lobero..the new Lobero! she was joined by Jackson Browne for a few songs but Shaun was the main attraction and she was really good



Shaun and Jackson


Ringo- at the SB Bowl..the salad bowl?? no...Ringo and his "Awful Starr Band" as he called them...I had my camera on video- running- and I didn't even know it.. I caught the end of one Ringo song and before he introduced Todd Rundgren, he said he loved the band and called them the Awful Starr Band...instead of the ALL-Starr Band...I'm the only one who caught that...just a little joke between me and the boys...

seeing Ringo was a trip..no more famous drummer ever..he played on all those songs as part of the greatest musical force ever..EVER!! the Beatles! opened the doors for the British Invasion...

and the rest is history!

Free fallin'

there's a freeway, runnin' through her yard...

so the Pacific storm blew into the area and caused some havoc..and also gave us a rainbow and some awesome beauty...people were so thirsty for rain, some drove with the tops down!




I'm watching the news in the morning and it's amateur hour....but still they managed to impart some info...power outages in Santa Barbara from NATIVE pine trees falling...up in Paso Robles a 100 year old NATIVE OAK tree fell into a house...I guess it's ok for a native tree to fall but if a eucalyptus tree free falls, the native freaks panic..just silly because all trees fall...gravity...that's why it's important to prune them, cut them back

and the folks down in Camarillo Springs got hit hard with big mudslides after the springs fire in 2013 denuded the hillsides....hmmmmm....




this area burned from Camarillo to Malibu down to the ocean..it's also part of the Santa Monica Mountain range....before the burn, nativists have been busy removing invasive species and restoring the creeks and watersheds for the steelhead..the National Parks Service is involved in these projects..these native restorations...pulling out the weeds and planting natives loosens the soils and makes it ripe for landslides, don't they know that..this area is not their private garden!!!

these are the same people who killed honeybees on the Channel Isalnds for being "feral"!!!
 

but folks like Miss Betsy here do this for a living.. she has a "landscape architect degree" Betsy has worked for MRT since January 2012, where she often goes out in the field to plant and water nursery grown natives, and to weed invasive plant species. In the office, she drafts restoration plans, sends projects through the proper government approval channels and writes grants.



now this confounds me...people weed out the bastard species that could help prevent the quick spread of a wildfire, and they plant more flammable politically correct natives!!

from the NPS: Chaparral is a general term that applies to various types of brushland found in southern California and the southwestern U.S. Plants such as manzanita, ceanothus, chamise and scrub oak, along with other grasses and forbs, are examples of typical chaparral flora. This community contains the most flammable type of vegetation found in the United States. It is no surprise, then, that many of these species are well-adapted to fire and some actually possess traits that encourage fire. One chaparral plant, ceanothus, has leaves that are coated with flammable resins. Ceanothus seeds require intense heat for germination, and its roots are specially adapted to enable the plant to grow in areas that were recently burned. Other chaparral shrubs also contain flammable oils and resins in their leaves. The leaves and branches of these plants are small, adding to their flammability. - See more at: http://www.nps.gov/fire/wildland-fire/learning-center/fire-in-depth/different-ecosystems/chaparral-sw.cfm#sthash.8mUbG1Lt.dpuf

the Santa Monica Mountain range could be the victim of unintended consequences thanks to the native cult interference there....next time you see an old hippie or yuppie hipster ripping out weeds on the hillsides, in the wild areas, weeds that help bind the soil and prevent it from sliding

ask yourself: why are these idiot fucks doing this???
