a year

miranda updated her blog today
and here's what i wrote about her a year ago here.

side sweet don't stop

remember when the internet first popped out its' baby myspace and you used to poke around and be free and talk to artists/musicians and not have this cloud of mystery and you didn't have unanswered emails from people that you respected because they were right there with you, developing themselves and fresh and new? well anyway le castle vania just wrote me and reminded me of that time with flashbacks of looking at how far he's come from when we/he/i befriended each other a few years back and the guy is L/E/G/I/T. plus he's going to be in my old hood Denver AND Coachella @ the So Sweet Records y'all have more than one chance to see him:

scary resemblence to a faded me

just got back from the silent movie theater where i saw a preview of Le Voyage de Ballon Rouge or the Flight of the Red Balloon from the Taiwanese director Hou Hsiao-Hsien. juliette binoche was just incredible...and it made me want to visit france, not have children and get back into my puppetry.

here's a song from that soundtrack that really stuck out:

Charles Aznavour || Emmenez-Moi

Here's the lyrics, translated:


Take Me Along

On the docks where the boredom
Of life is all that I own
I see boats coming in
With the fruits of places unknown

I watch as they come
From a world in the sun
That I see in my Mind

But then it's farewell
To this cold northern hell
They can leave far behind

Let me go where they go
Let me fly the winds that they fly
For to stay in this place
Will destroy a man such as I

Take me along
A long way from here
Take me along to a faraway shore
When you are poor
It's easy to bear
With sunshine and soft Summer air

At the end of the day
In a bar with sailors I stand
I talk about girls, about love
A glass in my hand

But then in my dreams
I can travel it seems
On a thought, Southern bound
And there I can hold
All the magic and gold
Of the love I have found

When the bars
On the keyside are closed
Alone I remain
I continue to dream
And each night
The dream is the same

Take me along
A long way from here
Take me along to a faraway shore
When you are poor
It's easy to bear
With sunshine and soft Summer air

Very soon I will take any job
Or chance that I can
Though I dream like a child
For my dreams I'll work like a man

Work and with pride
For my ticket to ride
Where the sun shines for me
Survive any storm
To be wild to be warm
That's the way I must be

I'll be leaving behind no regrets
And all of my past
And I'll call to the sea
As I sail to freedom at last

Take me along
A long way from here
Take me along to a faraway shore
When you are poor
It's easy to bear
With sunshine and soft Summer air

the captain has invited you

Tim & Eric are going on tour. I saw their live stuff at the Troubadour 6 months ago or maybe more I have noooo idea at this point. One of the guys in their act (not Tim & Eric) invited me to the Rainbow Room and told me to ask for "The Captain" and they would lead me to his table (he said). Point is you have to go. If it's not sold out. And the dude who I dj'ed with on April Fools will be opening sir DJ DouggPound.
