Help Me Rhonda

help me get her out of my heart

Ronda Rousey likes to get beat up, apparently..I'd get into a ring with her, knock her out in 48 secs and then knock her up.. have sex with's my New Year's Wish!!

knock her out, knock her up!
the local publications have the Year End reviews and as I was looking at the Montecito Journal cover, I noticed it was all white blacks...I know there's at least one famous black lady who lives in Montecto and that's Oprah...and what about Tratoria Mollie? is she black or just a good cook?

I know I won't see Snoop Dog and MJ publisher Jim Buckley hanging out at Starbuck's, and you won't see a black person walking their dog on Coast Village Road but Montecito never used to be so self-conscious or racist....the MJ rag is conservative to the point of absurdity and seems to be trying to protect the insulated whites from the harsh realities of a black world

I can poke fun at this magazine all day and it's really hard to take it seriously..they often repeat themselves with stories about society parties with the same old billionaires and hangers-on..I know all about these people and they are soooo phony and pretentious like leeches...

social gossip from that pompous English dude who always appears on the front page of the News-Press serving dinner at the Rescue Mission at Christmas...make that who care what Rob Lowe is up to nowadays

there's two classes in Montecito now..the super rich and those who take care of their dogs..there's no Mr. In-Between...writing stories about the wealthy won't make you one of them if that's your'll always be their dog-walker...along a Disneyfied Channel Drive


so in 2017, I'll expect more of the same from the Montecito Journal and know full well that the old Montecito is still there..just walk down Humphrey Road or drive up Ashley Rd.and thank God for Mountain Drive where we listened to Hendrix as kids in the 1960s..and Motown was filling the air waves with honey from the Supremes to the Chiffons....the Chambers Bros were doing the crazy brilliant "Time Has Come Today" and Can't Turn you Loose"
Montecito was much wilder and friendlier back then..working class American families having a blast with each other...

the Montecito Journal will never even know about that because it caters to the fluff..and trust funders

Beware Montecito, you have lost your 99% of your soul

All Along The Watchtower

"there must be some kinda way out of here" said the joker to the thief

it does not pay to be a celebrity nowadays because for some reason they are dying off a joker or a thief or a banker..but not a celebrity...

Debbie Reynolds died the day after her daughter Carrie Fisher died...good ol' mom, always with the last word! but I loved Debbie in "Singing In The Rain" a real classic!

Greg Lake for Emerson Lake and Palmer is gone...fantastic singer, guitarist and songwriter and even Dr. John immortalized ELP in his song Right Place, Wrong Time..'just need a little brain salad surgery'

George Michael died at 53...WHAM was a fun good little band and George was a really good singer...

Carp dude lightweight actor Alan Thicke bought the ranch

and then we got a line of living celebs on Padaro Lane..George Lucas, Conan O'Brien, Rob Lowe, Kevin Costner and probably one just closed escrow a few days ago

the thing about Padaro other than easy access to the ocean and surfing is I wish the stars would stop demolishing the old beachhouses and stop putting in private sidewalks and surveillance cameras on public property..besides, the stars buy these properties, remodel them and never live there!!

I dunno guys, but if I were them...

I'd sleep with one eye open

I Can't Get It Out Of My Head

oh no no no

it was a weird Christmas that's for's Christmas today too..Monday? oh it's Christmas Observed today..oh, I though Christmas was observed Sunday Dec 25th..whatever...

freezing temps, the Winter Solstice, infectious bacteria, neti pots, rain and wind and now it's over..mercifully...I endured more than any man should have to...I watched in horror the Unity Shoppe Mortgage Telethon..they says it's a charity but they need to pay down the note...I witnessed Kenny Loggins try to channel Ella Fitzgerald in song...Kenny, you should get down on your hands and knees and thank Messina for giving you a career! I saw Nipper in gold lame suit with a freaking pony tail..I saw Beth and CJ and all those KEYT folks insisting I'm part of their family..I am not

then one night, some idiot in an old white van was going back and forth on Via Real around midnight..while I was trying to sleep, his van was popping and banging loud like a cannon..up and down Via Real he reason no purpose so I called the cops...they already stopped the van and the guy says his muffler is bad...BANG BANG BANG..then why the fuck is he driving still..I told the dispatch gal they need to impound the van and she said she'd talk to the cops again...

then I see this homeless dude wheeling a portable tent city around, camping on the side walk and totally out of his was symbolic and metaphorical...

I watched the Rescue Mission give food clothes and shelter to folks in need....that was the best part of this Christmas for America, nobody should be sleeping on a sidewalk...we need to resurrect the mental health facilities and take care of people who can't care for themselves..just do it!!

however, Christmas Eve eve was kinda cool and stormy..windy, rainy with flood and wind the wind is blowing cold and the sun is shining hot so that means it's cool outside...I felt good and rested so took off for some last ditch Christmas shopping...not crowded at all and very pleasant riding around town...funny thing is the shopping centers don't have any Christmas least the Mesa and Big 5 didn't....geez how about a few wreaths or trees or lights..well maybe the shopping centers are owned by Jews who don't celebrate how about a Menorah somewhere..get into the holiday spirit!

there's a bunch of people out walking their dogs-no surprise there and some surfers at Leadbetter and I'm driving along when I get an idea to go hunting.. a deer for Christmas would be extra-special...meat and some deerskin gloves and boots! there's a few places I've gone to over the years but the drought dried them up..but with the rain, the creeks are flowing and I was excited..I grabbed my crossbow I bought at Big 5 and headed for the banks of Eucalyptus creek..over by George Lucas's sorry about Carrie Fisher's heart issues..loved her in the "Burbs!

wasn't a fan of 'Star Wars' but while I was driving around I saw this rock formation that reminded me of 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind'...

looks just like the one I got in my living room

Christmas At Sea

The frost was on the village roofs as white as ocean foam;

The good red fires were burning bright in every 'long-shore home;
The windows sparkled clear, and the chimneys volleyed out;
And I vow we sniffed the victuals as the vessel went about..

The bells upon the church were rung with a mighty jovial cheer;
For it's just that I should tell you how (of all days in the year)
This day of our adversity was blessèd Christmas morn,

And the house above the coastguard's was the house where I was born.

And useless in times like these I will not be made useless  

so I'm going in 'n out of consciousness from the devil bacteria and copious doses of penicillin..designed to kill the bacteria, the drug also seems to be killing my conscience..which only increases my psychosis...and I'm watching alot of TV....WTF is Jewel doing on that homesteader Alaska show?? last time I saw Jewel, she was roasting Rob Lowe!! but she's a pretty good singer and damn fine looking and Ot Lee's daughter???

anyway, I can't tell day from night or whether I'm black or white...people now resemble sea creatures...whatever I got is something I wouldn't wish on even Wendy!

but I can finally  see the light at the end of the tunnel...I'm rebounding vs the bacteria fuck the bacteria!!

I read the Sunday's News-Press and Preacher Andy is gabbing about California's regulations again..need I remind this quack that California's econony is the 8th largest in the world....that's why we'll never go Republican because the righties will turn Big Sur into The Big Gulp Water Park


then I see the Sunday ad section and at Big Five they got these little animal blankets the gals can wear on cold nights

cute..I think chicks should be sporting these for Christmas

really sexy..really naughty..really nice..really handy

Wake Me Up Before You Go Go

'Cause I'm not plannin' on going solo


so I thought I had the flu but became suspicious when my treatments didn't the flu I thought I had brought no fever or chills...but I still had trouble breathing through my nose, like is there concrete all around or is it in my head and when I sleep I like to breathe thru the nose, so I couldn't sleep much...I tried the usual drugs but they don't work on sinusitis...actually they made matters worse...for comfort, I watched movies like 'Dances With Wolves'... and the 'Burbs' ..and the Wizard Of Oz....and turned all the lights off but got scared so I turned them all on...I thought I was fucking gonna die..two weeks before Christmas!!

I tried prayer but you can't wave a bible over your nose and expect to be's illogical

so after the second sleepless night, I went to the Carp clinic and the doctor started me on the road to recovery...he said I had 'acute maxillary sinusitis' and I surely did and ran to the pharmacy for some FLONASE and a prescription antibiotic if needed down the road

doctors are educated and I'm not a doctor so I needed a proper diagnosis and I'm a little wiser now..
a heavy weight has been lifted from my shoulders 
and now I breathe through my nose again in concert with my mouth....and sleep..I can sleep... glorious sleep

and nasal douches are good....ladies got their douches, and I got mine

Maxwell's Silver Hammer

bang bang Maxwell's silver hammer came down upon her head

Kelly Anne wanna tell me she's not transgender??

I went to McDonald's in Carp for an Egg McMuffin...I saw a very pretty girl whose smile made my day and we almost touched but she had a husky voice....but the Carp McDonald's has good service, it's a clean store...I got no problem increasing the minimum wage for these folks who are developing a work ethic early on..good for them!

so when I heard Trump wants the CEO of Carl's Jr to head the Dept Of Labor, I almost screamed..Andy "the Putz" Puzder for Labor Secretary...I recall Puzder leaving California for Nashville to get gov't subsidies and get away from California reality, Carl's was not competing well with other fast food joints so Puz made up a bunch of malarky instead of blaming his management style..then he starts advertising hamburgers with scantily dressed girls eating them like they are performing a blow job...


Puzder set himself up with a huge salary, big enough to buy a mansion in Montecito while pissing on the restaurant workers... this pick by Trump is a disaster as he will soon see..Puzder is an imbecile

so General Trump must be picking his Cabinet via the Eeny, meeny, miny, moe" we got an old military guy, James "Mad Dog" Mattis and long since retired, heading up the Secretary Of Defense..Trump says he's the closest thing to Gen Patton he could are we gonna start WWII in January 2017??

then he's got Ben Carson as Housing and Urban secretary..Ben's a doctor, not an urban planner and remember he tried to kill his mother with a hammer!

retired General David Petraeus is being considered for Sec of State..but he's on probation for giving up classified info to his girlfriend/mistress! on probation!!

I saw a picture on Pearl Harbor Day with Eisenhower, FDR and Truman sitting together..a finer trio of American leaders you won't find

but with Trump, it's all for show...

Bless the Beasts and the Children

For in this world they have no voice


so the cold December night gave way to a hot beautiful Sunday morning....I see this she-beast walking down the street with green hair..I ask her where she's from and she says "Idaho"...I says I know you a ho but where you from?? she says "Idaho" ... forget it

then I decided to lay some traps down by the railroad tracks and I'll check them next week....


then I wanted to check the surf as it looks high from my window so after the traps I went to Santa Claus Lane..on the way I saw a dead red fox in the road... thought I heard a blood-curdling scream last night..could have been the fox, could have been my neighbor

the good thing is there's red foxes here, the bad thing is they are no match for a car, and the good thing is the vultures will take care of it....beautiful animals..foxes and vultures

upon doing some research, I think the fox was not a red fox. but it looks like a San Joaquin kit fox or maybe a gray fox with nary a hint of gray on it ..or maybe a little Channel Islands fox that swam over from  Santa Rosa a la 'Escape From Alcatraz' only to get whacked by a speeding car ..hmmmm...I'll look into this for the fox's sake

I get to Santa Claus Lane and they are having the 'Toys for Tots' motorcycle I waited at the corner under the blaring sun and the procession started...hundreds of  bikers tearing by on cool motorcycles on the way to Santa Barbara and points north....

they do this toy run every year...for the children....

it's a grand way to start the Christmas season!

Hey Carrie-Anne

Hey, Carrie Anne Hey, Carrie Anne When we were at school, our games were simple I played a janitor, you played a monitor Then you played with older boys and prefects, what's the attraction?

It's December..not deep and dark but sunny and warm....drought you know...but the nights are cold.. I need a Christmas tree! I want a Christmas tree! but what I want does not matter anymore so I take what I can get

now as I read the Independent I see some fighting between the News-Press and Indie....that's good...Nick thinks Scott makes up stories and yes of course he does...but if Trump and Wendy team up, they will dumb down everybody within earshot....then America will be up for grabs...remember Wendy doesn't want to report the news, she wants to control the news

but fuck Wendy.... I see Graham Nash will be at the Lobero in April so I got my tickets... a chance to see Graham at the Lobero should not be missed...Nash is a legend, an icon and in the middle of everything musical...a photographer as well... I loved the Hollies and when Graham joined forces with Crosby and Stills, their music got a little more interesting...the songs were top notch and the voices were lovely..that first album had me hooked- mixing the Buffalo Springfield, Byrds and Hollies was genius

then Graham's first solo LP "Songs For Beginners" with Rita Coolidge and Dave Mason helping out...great LP but one song, "I Used To Be A King" was so good..Jerry Garcia giving the best steel guitar performance I've ever heard, Phil Lesh on bass and Graham's soulful vocals....fantastic!!!

so I got my tree..a cool salt cedar but downtown SB is a little hard to navigate with all the one-ways and distractions on the corners like homeless guys fighting, little old ladies walking their dogs, tall buildings like the Alchemy Center...the Alchemy Center???

there's shadows and pretty Asian gals everywhere..where the fuck am I??

I'll let ya know when I find out

when all my dime dancing is through, I run to you

whenever I watch Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, it calms me down..I feel an inner peace..maybe it's because I don't speak Chinese..I love it when people talk and I can't understand takes all the social pressure off.... or maybe it's the actresses, Michelle Yeoh and Zhang Ziyi... so pretty and their battles are cool..and the flying..that's how I fly in my dreams....that's exactly how I fly...

in keeping with my spiritual relevations, I was dreaming about Machu Picchu.. on a mystical mountain range in Peru sits an old Inca citadel called Machu Picchu and I started to plan my trip..oh sure I could just call a travel agency and get some bubbly blonde to book me a flight and reserve a hotel room..but I wanted more..or less

I needed to get there but other means...I was dreaming of misty mountain ranges and religious experiences other than sex with an 18 year old Asian that would be HEAVEN!! I tell ya, I'm getting tired of these freeze-dried cranky old American chicks

but anyway I was driving around and Providence found me again...a bus on the side of the road for old  BlueBird....I pulled over and got out and stared in wide wonder at it... it was all tricked out with California mojo...have you ever looked inside one of these babies? the cockpit is supercool, there's stairs, not just steps...there's mirrors everywhere and big can see everything..and it's built like a tank..the steering wheel is big and round and confident...

ok so I wanna buy it and when I do, I can drive to Peru in about a month I would guess...there's no Operation Iraqi Freedom  going on and we haven't invaded Peru yet but with Trump in control, we may find a reason so the sooner I get there the better

the Pan- American Highway sounds as cool as Route 66 so how can I lose?? I know there's an isuue with travel thru the Darién Gap but the Bluebird is modified and doubles as a chopper with one flip of the toggle switch... and I can just fly over Darien Gap

I need to get to a place where I can hear the water heart beating  like a metronome

and fly in my dreams again

Monday, November 28, 2016


me I'm flying in my taxi, taking tips and getting stoned

I was watching Taxi Driver and I don't know if I'd watch it if Cybill Shepherd wasn't in it..dang God Almighty, she is just beautiful and a great actress...but I don't know any of the players in Taxi Driver and have no connection with them other than Ellen DeGeneres, who was sitting beside Robert De Niro at a recent Awards ceremony at the White House...I met Ellen informally when she was shopping for antiques in Summerland with her girlfriend at the time..this was around 1999 or so...maybe 2001 but I was driving down Lillie Ave, saw her, stopped and backed up and asked her if I could take her picture..she said "well since you asked, sure!"

so I took a pic said thanks and took off..she was very nice smiling and gracious and turned that winning combo into millions of dollars....

but I used that picture in my little book about Santa Claus Lane...I and others wanted to preserve the California car culture of the Lane but others wanted to turn it into Cape Cod Villa...the big red Santa statue was removed but we got to keep the name Santa Claus Lane..and the business owners, at least a few, kept crying that the name Santa Claus Lane would hurt property feeling was that was poppycock and the land values would increase and today we have some condo type homes for sale right on the Lane, a few steps from the railroad tracks and they are going for over 4 MILLION DOLLARS EACH!!

Santa Claus Lane..pricey!!

so the folks who have businesses on Santa Claus Lane should thank me....

the Lane has a great beach and lovely scenery and some good vibes

the kind of vibes I get when I look at Cybill Shepherd

Turn Back The Pages

life's too short for ritualistic chases


the only thing Cuba did to the United States was make us look foolish and incompetent with the attempted CIA-led invasion of Cuba, the Bay Of Pigs..ever since we've been mad at Fidel Castro, who just died at 90 years old...but Cuba's ok with me...they can run their country whichever way they want, just like the place is very romantic with the cigars, the booze, the women, the dime dances and... the REVOLUCION!!!

Trump, don't fuck up the Cuba deal Obama negotiated and don't drain the ocean!

back at home, the conservatives are mighty worried about the illegals in our country and are excited that Trump promised to build a wall down south..but Trump has already broken all his promises he made during the campaign so a wall ain't gonna happen..and he backtracked on having a special deportion crew to round up 11 million illegals and deport them....and he won't lock up Hillary
but those promises were meant to appease the teabaggers- many voting for Trump...Trump knows damn well that illegals keep the hospitality business his hotels...and the agriculture industry employs illegals but nobody is suing the farmers....the conservatives have fought not to reform immigration other than to keep it you really think white people are gonna change bed sheets and pick lettuce in the fields?? or join a union???

get real

Serendipity sleeps...and Providence sings

and as I said before, every city with a church is a sanctuary city and now I see even FOX News agrees with me....

everyone can find refuge and sanctuary in a church...

even me

Black Friday

the archbishop gonna sanctify me

so it's the day after Thanksgiving, or Black Friday as we call it..millions of turkeys were killed so fat Americans could feed and feast for the holiday....and give thanks but some seem confused as to what we are giving thanks for...the News-Press thinks we give thanks for the Judeo-Christian principles the USA was founded upon..actually the guest opinion evangelical soothsayer Andy Caldwell thinks that and a bunch of other crazy stuff about religion and the gov't....I won't even go into it but at least Trump isn't God Blessing America every five minutes..freedom of religion also means no religious establishment

after a big turkey dinner, exercise is wise!

what is Thanksgiving?? if you're white, it means you have a great big dinner, one of your rich relatives gives you some money, and the next day you go shopping for Black Friday deals...if you're black, Thanksgiving means nothing..if you're Mexican, no more gravy...if you are white trash, Thanksgiving means you might get killed on Black Friday fighting over an item at Walmart with another piece of white trash...

and if you're a Christian, Thankgiving means you get to judge everyone else and try to make them feel guilty for something

but in reality, Thanksgiving is all about the Harvest thanks for the bounty...and it was started over in old England, the guys we fought to get our's got nothing to do with Judeo Christian values or shopping...the Judeo Christians bastardized the origianl intent of Thanksgiving and turned it into a shopping holiday...the love of money is the root of all evil but it is useless to explain that to these money-grubbing God-Fearers who preach on TV and ask for donations...


these evangelical sonsabitches are turkeys!

Paper Sun

So, you think you're having good times With the boy that you just met Kicking sand from beach to beach Your clothes all soaking wet

after the night rain it finally dawned on me.... so I went out to catch some rays and this vulture circled and landed on a power pole next to my truck, which I had parked on a hillock outside of town

I was beginning to go hike the dales, but the bird caught my attention so I turned back... edging a little closer to the pole, I looked up at him and he looked down at me..

I leaned back against the headlight and we both stood there with the sun in our eyes and on our faces...

each with our respective poses

Box Of Rain

Look out of any window, any morning, any evening, any day.. Maybe the sun is shining, birds are winging... No rain is falling

I was watching a film last fresh as when I first saw it in 1965 on a rainy night at a small theater on a side street in Paris...Texas, that is...oh I've been to Paris France avec du beurre et de pain et le vin aussi!! tres bien mes amis!

Paris is a romantic city...France is a lovely country...this will never change thanks to the French people....

now on my way through Texas once, it rained so hard my pals and I started to panic..the water was rising like Christ from the dead so we found a hill and made a detour and hung out there for awhile till the rain stopped and the waters left....that is why I don't live in Texas..well one reason anyway

so did Noah really build an ark and did he really get animals to come aboard while God made it rain for 40 days and 40 nights? I find that hard to swallow and until I see some evidence like wood an old boat, I will treat the story of Noah's Ark as satire from one of the disciples

I got an email claiming I could sleep with MARRIED women this month..sounds like an invitation to trouble so sent it to spam....but I never say never

a sheperd once told me he likes weeds because they are easy to grow and they attract butterflies...thistle, fennel, dandelions..they grow where and when they want and don't need water so much as natives do...some may protest this but the facts lay bare....all you need to to is look at what's on the ground on the trails...

so there was the Berlin Wall, the Great Wall of China, the Iron Curtain, the Israel/Palestine Wall and now Trump wants the American/Mexico Wall....wants to keep the flow of drugs and illegals out...Lots of drugs in Michigan and the Great Lakes area...where are those drugs coming from? Mexico? nope.. I bet they're are coming from Canada which is right next to Michigan...once Trump figures this out, he'll probably try to sell us a Canadian Wall

you'll notice that none of the walls mentioned served to keep people out because walls won't keep people out...

walls are psychological barriers to make insecure people feel safe....but remember this:

A box of rain will ease the pain, and love will see you through....

On The Border

I'm out on the border, I'm walkin' the line, don't you tell me 'bout your law and order


let's face it..the Democrats got butchered this we got protesters blocking streets, calling people names, making fun of Trump and acting like spoiled children...wait, isn' that what the Republicans did during the debates? called each other names like lying Ted Cruz, little Marco Rubio, Trump mocking a disabled guy..calling Mexicans rapists and killers...and he blocked traffic with too many speeches and crowds??

so why shouldn' the students be allowed to vent a little???

now I said that Trump has trouble with finding the right people as witnessed during his campaign..and we know his spoiled kids are calling the shots, but Jeff Sessions for AG?? ALABAMA retard racist to the max!! ? besides, Trump is a fraud and he just settled the scam Trump University lawsuits for 25 million dollars! the president-elect is a crook!!

let's face it again...the only people you're gonna see for the next four years are white..everyone else will be hiding somewhere and certainly not at the golf course...

speaking of golf courses, the Montecito Country Club course is greening up...Jack Niclaus designed it and Lee Trevino did not..

now, I've offered to house up to seven illegal Mexican girls for free

one for each day of the week until Trump is no longer president....or until the Democrats get a little smarter

I expect nothing in return except maybe a little hot tamale in the morning and some hot salsa in the evening

Voices In The Sky

Nightingale, hovering high
Harmonize the wind
Darkness, your symphony
I can hear you sing
Of voices in the sky

after working, I used to come home at night around 1:30 AM, get off on Santa Claus Lane, swing over to Via Real, head up Cravens Lane and shoot up to the ranch....I always loved driving home at traffic, the cold air was sweet..I'd see the sparkling eyes of raccoons in the headlights...maybe coyote slipping over a fence....a big yellow moon rising over the hills to guide me

before that when I was a kid, I'd do a shift at a greasy spoon as a short -order cook, then head up to Camino Cielo, find a place to park on the side of the road...pull out the sleeping bag and watch the full moon shine over the city.....


then in Carp again, done with the ranch and bad plumbing I chose the best of both worlds...I bought a "unit" close to the ranch with mountain and ocean views...close to the trains ( I love trains) and the highway for a quick getaway if needed...

and I can watch the moon rise over the mountains..while the black moon gave me some trouble, all the other many moons have been an almost religious experience...I never get tired of seeing that big gorgeous mysterious phantom in the sky...endless songs and poems have been written about her and it brings me joy

so the latest lunar delight is the brightest Supermoon since 1948...I wasn't alive then so I don't know, but today I am alive and I did get out to watch as it rose rather early...reddish orange then silver then yellow

the moon brings the high tides and makes for enchanted evenings being surrounded by these voices...these beautiful voices

Just what is happening to me
I lie awake with the sound of the sea
Calling to me

The Taming Of The Shrew

Of all things living, a man's the worst

I took a pin and dropped it on the floor but I couldn't hear it you actually CAN'T hear a pin drop because it's too light to make a noticeable sound...

so Wendy was finally able to muster up an opinion about journalism with Donald Trump winning the election..Wendy has relied on cuckoo fire and brimstone Christian fuck Andy Caldwell to write Guest Opinions to distance herself from any scrutiny...

but since Wendy finally picked a winner in Trump, she thinks she's all important now...

well I can cut to the chase for ya Wendy....the election was not rigged...Hillary won the popular vote and Trump won the electoral college votes, so Trump is president-elect

the fact that Wendy's News-Press endorsed Trump means nothing becuze only 4000 people read the News-Press all comes down to the voters and number of electoral votes per state...state by state... some states have more electoral votes and the candidates pour big money in to win favor in those states....the press has very little to do with winning or losing elections in America because as Will Rogers once said "never believe what you read in the newspapers" .... "esp if it's the News-Press"..I said that

"read my grampa's paper or else!"

William Randolph Hearst was a big newspaper publisher who controlled the media during his reign, but then lost it all in the Great Depression....wikipedia: Hearst entered the publishing business in 1887 after being given control of The San Francisco Examiner by his wealthy father. Moving to New York City, he acquired The New York Journal and engaged in a bitter circulation war with Joseph Pulitzer's New York World that led to the creation of yellow journalismsensationalized stories featuring crime, corruption, and sex, and of sometimes dubious veracity.

sound familiar?? Wendy is about as yellow as a banana.... and WRH turned his granddaughter into a terrorist...remember Patty Hearst?? Machine Gun Patty...where is she today? she's a dog show gal!! Jesus Fucking Christ, I think I just solved the dog problem issue!! Wendy and WRH have brainwashed people into owning dogs!! I'll report later

now, Hitler controlled the German press with Nazi propaganda and Wendy wants to do the same..she doesn't want a free press, she wants a controlled press that will spread rightwing propaganda so she can think she is in control..but Wendy must remember, she is not in control, I am

the National Enquirer, a tabloid gossip rag that endorsed Trump and printed crazy headlines about Hillary is a perfect example of rightwing bias and an absurd attempt to influence elections..
oh wait, the Donald won!!

well I can't help it if people are stupid

Me and Baby Jane

oh how we laughed together, trapped in the Grapes of Wrath together

so I'm listening to the radio Sunday morn and they're playing lots of Leon Russell...good! I love Leon Russell...then I hear even more so I figure either he's coming to town for a concert or he died...

from Rita Coolidge's memoir: Delta Lady

Leon Russell died...he was in bad health for awhile so I'm not shocked...but what an interesting cat he leader, producer, songwriter extraordinaire, solo artist and worked on so many Top 40 hits in the sixties..really great songs like This Diamond Ring...and did sessions with everyone from Sinatra to Dylan ..a huge part of the gorgeous sounds coming from that era..a time in music that will never come again

in the early 70s music was pretty loose and brilliant and still a mega- business... and Leon was a big part of it with the Mad Dogs and Englishmen tours...Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge..get her book, Delta Lady... she tells some great stories...her sister Priscilla was married to Booker T Jones and they all had ranches in Malibu! Leon and Rita were an item for awhile...

Superstar was written by Rita and Leon finished it and the Carpenters, with Karen Carpenter singing, did a lovely version...

Leon with the long white hair and flowing beard and dark glasses looked like a guy from another the 1800s..maybe in a traveling carnival show...

but the early 70s was where he many great songs he did with Cocker and on the solo albums...This Masquerade, Cry Me A River, Song For You, Me and Baby Jane, Rolling in My Sweet Baby's Arms...he was about as gifted as a musician could be! he was a legend

then he fell on some hard times and Elton John lifted him up and out of it...Elton was a big fan of Leon...

pretty good piano players those two...

The Searchers

well, I plan on getting myself unsurrounded


so I'm watching The Searchers...a great American western with John Wayne...John Ford directed the epic scenes

I hadn't really watched it much before because it's rarely on TV, but tonight I did...that big Carpinteria moon was shining bright outside...when the light hits the waves, it looks like electric eels surfing

so I'm watching the Searchers and see some things that give me a thrill...John Wayne and Olive Carey in a little ranch house...Vera Miles, who played the gorgeous sister of Janet Leigh in Psycho, plays Olive's daughter and she is just on fire beautiful!! Harry Carey, Jr and Natalie Wood rounded out the incredible cast..WOW!!

oh, I love these old westerns....The Searchers is brilliant and disturbing ....and a little odd

I've mentioned Rancho Monte Alegre in the Carpinteria foothills is up for auction in reserve and a $32 million target...having lived on the ranch in the 1990s, I wondered should I bid.. I will if I come up with 32 million dollars

Olive Carey lived on the ranch until she died in the old pink of the owners, a character herself, just loved Olive!

I rented that pink cottage a few years after Olive Carey died..... I had a wild time up there..the most beautiful piece of land I've ever seen..and I heard from the crazy but fun owners at the time that Olive held cocktail parties at her cottage with the likes of John Wayne and Robert Mitchum dropping was Olive who gave John Wayne his break in showbiz and he never forgot her

so I stayed for a few years in a cottage that Olive Carey lived and died in and John Wayne walked and partied in...and they were in the Searchers together... with Vera Miles

Olive left her cool old burgundy piano in the cottage..I'd play it at night..all the lights off except for the one over the had a cover of stained glass and looked eerie and beautiful when lit...

and I'd play that piano and I swear Ollie's ghost was in that cottage

I think about that beautiful place and it still gets me to this day...

End Of The Innocence

who knows how long this will last....

Halloween may be over but I was watching a spooky film called the "Innocents" last night..I'd watch then go play my new conga drum...beat beat beat...I love beating off to keep the spirits's fun!!

but Deborah Kerr was running around scaring the shit outta me and those weird kids were unsettling...possessed long before the Exorcist, but I love Deborah Kerr!

so the scary won't stop and we have two frightful holidays coming up: Thanksgiving and Christmas...I shudder to think where I'll be come late someone's home who doesn't really want me there? everyone wants to be wanted but below the surface is always a tinge of hostility from the host's family..the host may be a sister or brother and of course you love your sisters and brothers but not necessarily the spouses they've you end up showing up the spouse who won't stand up to you in his own house because the wife has all the money!! and if you're not the host, you're the parasite... hahaha..well I can tell you this...there's no fucking way I'm going anywhere for Thanksgiving, esp the inlaws...I've got plenty to be thankful for and it's got nothing to do with eating turkey...if I get invited, I got my excuse


ok so Christmas is less scary than Thanksgiving but the damn Mexicans next door leave the Christmas lights up until March! I expect President Trump will have an idea on how to deal with the Mexican issue...but then again, who's gonna pick the crops that feed the white folks??

and the Jews removed Santa statue from Santa Claus Lane! does Trump like Jews I wonder? maybe he can get Russia to bomb Israel..would that be something?

I miss ol' Santa by the highway in Carpinteria but things change..there was time when they wanted to drain the Salt Marsh and build condos so if enough people care, you can stop change...

but sometimes you can't, but you can don't have to but you can...try..or not

hey, it's 100 degrees outside and I'm eating a fudgsicle!!

in that case I'll go underground, get some heavy rest

well I may have to go underground to get away from President Trump and all the stoners in California...

roll me over, Romeo..there you go
Oh I voted.. unfortunately so did a bunch of other people..but I voted with a clear conscience

the election was exciting but Hillary lost her virginity and now all pussy is fair game which I guess is pays to be a white male because I never have to worry, 'bout what is worst or what is best...Trump can't deport me and he can't grab my pussy...but if he fucks with the stock market or the working class, I may have to become an outlaw again....


afterwards, I drove around kinda giddy at the historic nature of the election...then I see some early signs of things to come...smoke rising near Summerland..if feels like summer today but the stoners are out...Prop 64, the legalization of Mary Jane, passed..and the stoners knew it yesterday! their cars, in their houses, walking down the know if John Denver hadn't written that stupid song "Rocky Mountain High", this wouldn't be an issue

but at least it will be easier to rape stoned chicks now!

so Salud beat young gun Justin surprise there..yo Justin..yo...and evil woman Kamala Harris won big...Carpinteria School Dist picked up two good people....Joan Hartman beat Bruce Porter for 3RD dist supe..good!

drought? what drought?

the Montecito Water District got two guys supported by the biggest water wasters in do you think these over-manicured gardens look so lush in a drought???

think it's time for a change

hey Mr. DJ.. I just wanna hear some rhythm and blues music, on the radio, on the radio
