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
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
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
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..
life is complicated enough with Trump's kids running the White House, now I gotta deal with rightwingnut Ann Coulter goin' black...she digs scary looking old black dudes!!
A white supremacist group has decided to rescind an award to Ann Coulter after discovering she might have a thing for black men. Coulter, who makes her living selling books to old, racist white men, has long been rumored to have a predilection for black men...
seen way too smiley with black man Jimmie Walker from the old 'Good Times' sitcom, white folks everywhere, esp at FOX NEWS, are scratching their heads and wondering what happened..
I too am confused as I thought Ann was a God-fearing Christian gal who hated gays, blacks, Mexicans, Muslims and soccer and to see her with an old black guy distresses me...I can't imagine her giving ol' Jimmie a blow job...geez!! The National White Alliance (NWA) has decided to disinvite Coulter from their annual conference, after discovering pictures of her arm-in-arm with comedian Jimmie Walker.
An email leaked to The Business Standard News found National White Alliance leader Will Cowan saying he could never look at Coulter again after discovering she was "unclean." Coulter had been set to receive the NWA’s Eva Braun award for her new book, "Adios, America." In the book, Coulter blames immigrants from Latin America and Africa for dragging America down, saying we should take in more immigrants from Europe.
Coulter fans on Stormfront were furious about the discovery.
"I can’t believe she would do something like this," said Post Fred57. "She has ruined herself."
"F**k that skinny bitch," said SouthernKnight. "I’m burning all of her books. I can’t believe I put money in her pocket." Diff'rent Strokes, I guess
Who would rain and chase the dust away
Everybody wants to shine
Who'll come out on a cloudy day now we got some stars around here and some of them are selling their houses and properties..we got Ellen and Portia and Jeff Bridges..and Dennis Miller sold his beach house for 20 mill or so..Dennis tours with sex pervert Bill O'Reilly from FOX NEWS and people flock to them for some reason....Dennis and Bill are lucky to have Rupurt Murdoch as their sugar daddy and Ruppie shelled out over 13 million to settle sex harassment claims against O'Reilly..God I hope this idiot doesn't buy a house on Padaro
but now I see Kevin Costner's Padaro retreat by Loon Park is for sale at..what? 60 million!! supposedly he got it for 20 million and still has a house on Beach Club Road a few blocks down the road where he was embroiled in hedge controversy a few years ago..hope they resolved that...now Jeff lives high up on Hot Springs Rd where Kenny Loggins once lived...
I pass Kevin's place alot and stop in for a game of hoops now and then...love his films..and the property is gorgeous..right on the bluffs, plenty of trees and open space but alot of debris, old tractors and a few modular houses and out-buildings so I don't think Kevin knows what to do there..except sell it and move on...but 60 million is kind of I wanna sell but not really price tag...actually, I like it the way it is...real simple and casual..Padaro Lane has always been cool..big pines and eucalyptus and fire places burning after rains...
I could have been a star and made tons of money and bought expensive properties where I never live because I'm too busy making money and being a STAR...
but my real concern is getting rid of there dumb security cameras on Padaro Lane which I think were put up by the celebrities..but it's a public road not a private road so they have no right to be so paranoid on public property...they can hide behind their big walls
I loved the old beach houses along Padaro that have been demolished for the designer mansions..some of the beach houses remain but the price of property here is getting absurd so I'll probably see more castles and Italian villas that people, rich people, buy but don't live in..
I guess it gets to the point that you have soooo much money, you don't know what to do so you put up security cameras in case someone who knows what they want to do robs you!!
My, my, my it's a beautiful world
I like swimming in the sea
if you take a bike ride from Santa Barbara to Carpinteria, you will see some lovely sights...there's plenty of room for healthy recreation....miles of roads for your bike, miles of sandy beaches with inviting surf, parks and play areas....look up to the hills and mountains and the hiker in you will smile...look at the marsh and maybe see red-shoulder hawk....and we got all year to enjoy this bounty of nature...
so I don't know why some aging hippie-socialists are so Hell-bent on closing a main thoroughfare in Carpinteria to promote healthy living..is it the anti-car anti-oil folks? I was going to get some things in Carp but Linden was closed and a few people were walking around and a bunch of people were kinda riding bikes...but businesses lost money and I didn't see more than 50 people...and the cops were there and the road block signs were there and I am paying for it with TAX DOLLARS!! closing Linden Ave for 8 hrs will not make you healthy but it may promote an agenda for a specific group...therefore it's a political event sponsored by SBCAG What is SBCAG? The Santa Barbara County Association of Governments is a regional planning agency comprised of Santa Barbara County and all eight incorporated cities within the county. SBCAG distributes local, state, and federal transportation funds and acts as a forum for addressing regional and multi-jurisdictional issues.
SBCAG should not be spending my tax money for this open streets nonsense
what they should do on Saturday is go for a hike in the hills, a bike ride through Summerland, a swim in the ocean or play some soccer at a park..
now as I said before, any city in the good ol' USA with a church is a sanctuary city..and the churches are stepping up and providing sanctuary for immigrants and all these Christians barking about illegals and preaching brotherly love- if your brother is not a Mexican- are up in arms and they don't know what hit them because the feds won't go into the church to arrest a Mex
oh all these faux-Christian rightwingers and their fear of Mexicans makes me laugh...esp FOX (FAUX) News and the News-Press, two cases in point...you'll recall when Wendy and Nipper put some Mexican folks on the front page and called them illegals because they were at the DMV...this was obvious racism and stereotyping by the yellow journal..and they held an anti-Mexican rally in front of the News-Press with crazy pro-NEWS-PRESS folks showing up..even Julia, #69, the old lady from Animal Rescue called Mexicans "invasive species" ...what a dumb bitch she is..just like Wendy..RACISTS!!!
but Nipper and Wendy sided with the vigilante border patrol Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist...Gilchrist founded the Mintuemen with help from Chris Simcox, a now convicted child molestor and Shawna Forde a convicted child killer-she killed 9-year old BRISENIA FLORES..a beautiful young girl may she rest in peace..
now, I see that Graham Nash did an interview with the News-Press for his upcoming show at the Lobero..I got tickets but am boycotting the show....geez Graham, don't you know the News-Press history? 'ow could you grant them an interview, mate? do you support Wendy's anti-worker obsession? do you support child sexual abuse and murder?
it looks like Graham Nash is more interested in publicity than taking a stand against an obvious and vile wrong like Wendy and the News-Press
and one thing I can't stand Graham is a hypocrite!
