Hey, don't you live in San Francisco or something? I've been considering being a hobo this summer and trying to get there on freight trains.

You should try and hobo your way through Fargo. It is pretty okay during the summer, and I will be there!

I've met and had dinner with Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. They're on the board for the Westport County Playhouse in CT and my dad was the architect for the new playhouse and b/c the Newman and Woodward give a bajillion dollars to the place they were often meeting with him to talk about things. That was pretty cool I guess.

that one fucker in ever Everclear who turned out to be kind of a dick.

I've heard this more than once.  A D.J. on a radio show I once listened to claimed that of all the performers he's ever interviewed, Art Alexakis was the biggest asshole. 

It makes me feel better about despising them.

I'm not sure why you felt bad about disliking Everclear.



(for the record, I don't recall what Everclear sounds like. I think I may like them, or rather liked them.)

Massive suckage. My professional opinion.

I recall I once bought the American Music Club album Everclear for Julia Bee and I think she thinks or thought it was an Everclear album. I'm lucky she didn't slap me across the face with it.

In review (you should see two pictures):

The difference is that one of these can give you a headache if you have too much of it.


The other one is 190 proof grain alcohol.


I don't even like them, and my two most recent music purchases were U2 and the White Stripes.

Never been a big Everclear fan myself, actually, but my girlfriend at the time was a huge fan, which is really probably the most damning thing about the whole scenario. We were in highschool at the time, so he was basically a gigantic douchebag to a 16 year old girl. I mean, yeah, teenagers are obnoxious at times, but it's not like she was squealing and babbling incoherently or anything. I mean, maybe it's really hard being a celebrity, (after all, I wouldn't know), but I still think you can do better than ogling a fan for 15 seconds and then being really dismissive.

Yeah, but who hasn't covered "Brown Eyed Girl" (and really, when it comes down to it, who can hope to top Van Morrison there?)?

Actually I was pretty impressed with Jimmy Buffet's version of it.

Aww come on, that guy with the tambourine looks pretty cool. I mean, he has a tambourine! That's super musical skill right there! The rest of them look like cocks, though.

(actually, he looks like a guy around here who hangs out with my housemates. He's a pretty cool guy, so tambourine-guy is nice in my book!)

For the longest time I actually thought he did the original, because it was all I ever heard growing up. It holds a special place in my heart.

I was pretty disappointed when I saw him on the Tiki Time tour. It was... yeah it was shit. Pure shit until the second part. N*Sync's concert 4 years earlier impressed me more and was consistently rad.

Damn your Everclear slandering, I want to talk about how I have talked to, played music with, and had a few drinks with Gary Ablett on several occasions.

I met Josie Long tonight! (Lovely comedian from England.) I went to her show at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and then went up to thank her afterwards, and because I was at her show Kindness and Exuberance last year I got a little zine she put together of some of her favourite responses that she got when she asked audience members at that show to write down their favourite small thing.

Then when I got to the tram stop and started reading it, it turned out that the thing that I wrote down was on the first inside page! So I went back to the venue and found her again (like a stalker!) and introduced myself, and we had a nice little chat for a couple of minutes about interconnectedness and astronomy and spirituality sans God. Then I went back to the tram stop.

She's great!

Wait..."Trams".

How is life in the roaring 1920s by the way?

You joke but I use trams from the 1920s on a regular basis.


Oh and also (to try and link transportation in with the topic of famous people) my dad served the previous pope (rip) on an airplane once. There is a photo of them shaking hands on our mantlepiece, mostly because it always gets everyone laughing.
