Strange Rivers

There are voices in the mirror, faces at the door, That open on the rivers, we've never seen before

I plan on doing my part to keep it that way, so don't test me

I repeat: DO NOT TEST ME!

Rocky Raccoon

the doctor came in stinking of gin

an Easter parable




Rocky Raccoon was murdered, his body buried in a shallow grave by the highway...his rival killed him...Rocky kept telling people "the way things are going, they're gonna crucify me" and it looks like they did..

if you happen upon Gideon's bible this Easter, say a prayer for Rocky Raccoon

Must Of Got Lost

I must of got lost, I must of got lost I must of got lost somewhere down the line




looks like eveyone is lost but you can count on one thing, even if you're an atheist...EASTER! for one day, we can all believe in fairy tales and superstitions and no one will be the wiser..you can go to church and you know what I like? the ladies all dressed up in the make-up and the Sunday suits..they look just like dolls! those stiff chiffon dresses, all pink and blue and the bonnets with bees for some..



 
then the Easter egg hunts and jelly beans and happy kids and tipsy adults...

Easter is the greatest holiday of them all!

find yourself this Easter

Farmer's Daughter

I could come from miles away

as they prepare the fields for a new kind of crop in Carpinteria, I expect to see a new verison of the farmer's daughter




Ain't got (ain't got
Ain't got)
No place to stay (place to stay
Place to stay)
Glad to (glad to
Glad to)
Help you plow your fields (help you plow
Help you plow)

Didn't It Rain

Didn't it rain, children Talk 'bout rain ... didn't it oh my Lord Didn't it rain?
 



I look out my window for rain and see a blonde chick hanging out in the bushes..I can't help it if I'm lucky...and as I told you the drought is over..others said the drought was not over from the news folks to the county water guy but you should listen to me because I was right for once

ok fine ...then I'm checking out something on youtube and come across Sister Rosetta Tharpe and she's my favorite singer/guitar player now.. I mean, before Aretha, Chuck Berry and all the greats who were influenced by her, Sister Rosetta was slinging that Gibson guitar like a short-order cook slings hash during the breakfast rush...she's fast, furious, soulful and this tape is from England in a train station...in 1964

In 2001, the French film Amélie included a scene showing the protagonist's house-bound neighbor mesmerized by a montage of video clips that featured a performance of "Up Above My Head" by Tharpe.


damn straight it rained

Wasted On The Way

so much water moving underneath the bridge

what bridge Graham? ok so I missed Graham Nash at the Lobero although I had a ticket..but since he did an interview with Wendy's ghastly News-Press, I boycotted the event and I probably over-reacted. I mean does Graham know or care about the News-Press as he lives in New York and probably jets to England bnow and again..so yeah, I should have gone because not everything revolves around me and Wendy you know...


but I must say that the reason CSN didn't get on the Beatle's Apple record label is because of George...George didn't like the Hollies version of "If I Needed Someone" which George wrote...it's a brilliant song and the Hollies didn't do a good job on their version but CSN thrived anyway thanks to Martin acoustic guitars and some gorgeous songs and vocals

So Trump removed Breitbart's Steve Bannon from the National Security Council thank GOD..that dude looks like he drinks a fifth of Bourbon each morning for breakfast..then Trump starts bombing Syria for the gassing of children...Trump has ZERO knowledge who was behind the gassing, but bombs away anyway....it's Syria's civil war but an allied full bodied full metal jacket approach is needed to end it..that means millions of troops on the ground..these pissy air strikes won't do anything except stroke Trump's ego


 
actress Linda Evans was pulled over for DUI and she was on prescription drugs but the photo of her was pretty sad..back in the day she was pretty as can be..a real cool cowgirl who starred in the Big Valley and I think she lives in the big valley Santa Ynez...I wish her the best

I'm gonna miss Brian Wilson at the SB Bowl because I saw him at the Lobero around 2009 before the Lobero remodel..it was such a great show and an honor to watch the pop genius with his outstanding band and horn section do all that epic music...

Brian was in such good form and the Lobero crowd had a blast....I just can't have anything interfere with that memory..

and memories are all I got
