    One can watch impassively as a persons body becomes limp from the effects of a drug.  But for some reason this transition takes on spiritual meaning if the person is about to undergo surgery or step off into the inverse to rectify some great imbalance.  If I had a CAT scanner and a liberal arts college to fund me, I would attempt to research the mental activity of observers in the presence of various psychonautic situations, to determine if they were imagining or perceiving the great tendrils of importance as they manifest in the warm grey clouds.


    And, thank you UFOMammut, for being so good and loud on a Friday.

    When we got to the woods, we found they were burned.

    What can I say, except that they still got it. Like the past 10 yrs never happened, the JL hit the stage and ripped through a classic setlist drawn from the first 4 albums and their two most well-chosen covers, “Chrome” by Chrome and the closer “Wheelchair Epidemic” by the Dicks. It has been quite a nostagia-fest this year, I’ve seen the Melvins, the Butthole Surfers finally the Jesus Lizard, my neck and back still hurt from pogoing to “Gladiator” and everything else. Being a bit shorter than most of my human companions I appreciated the tall drum riser that Mac Macneilly was perched on, sporting a nice set of headphones. Dan said he would leave if they started jamming, but when the stretched out “7 vs 8″ (including a drum solo) veered into that territory  he stayed anyways. I got a beer dumped on my head and didn’t care.


  • Butthole Surfers, Crystal Ballroom, Portland, Oregon. Past

    I saw an awesome BSH show sometime in the recent past, and captured some of the immediate photons while I was there.  The sound was different enough that I found myself listening anew, but otherwise it was perfect.  Here’s a review of the show:

    Bleeding asshole burning in his car
    ice cold beer carried back from the bar
    hide the oozing wound inside my sleeve
    move to the edge so I can breathe
    police state robot eyeball locked on me
    faces hold my place in the crowd when I leave
    elected blackout surgery performed by fiends
    hyperventilating escape sprinting in torn jeans
    comforting hug of worms crawling through me

    (Oh, yeah. The Butthole Surfers was loads of fun, for those of you who couldn’t make it. Great set list and great playin’. Missed the strobes of yesteryear and thought the guitar was way to low in the mix, but a super fun time was had by all. Next up Jesus Lizard with Black Elk)

    When a rock and roller breaks sixty on stage, still playing killer music to enthusiastic fans, it is better to celebrate their life than mourn their death. Glad I got to see Blue Cheer a couple times. R.I.P Dickie Peterson.

  • A late dinner worth staying up for

    To help you step up, I am preparing a Saturday late dinner worth staying up late to eat.

    Baked tortillausage:

    1 Lb Ricotta
    12 Spicy Italian sausage links
    4 Lbs Sauce

    Grill sausage ahead of time. Slice and add to Dutch oven. Pour in Tortellini and sauce and stir. Mix Spinach, Parm and Ricotta and form this goo into golf ball sized lumps and add to concoction. Top with Mozzarella cheese. Bake in dutch oven until hell-baked. Serve with beer.
