My procrastination in the hair cut arena has left me with Bruce Foxton’s mod-mullet.

After some subtle hinting, I was lead to disturbing imagery on The Clap site.

I was about to take a sip of my coffee, rim of cup centimeters from my lips, when Chelsea said, “What are you doing? You didn’t put coffee in there did you? I used that cup to scoop out my foot-water.”

I purchased some “Rustic Fiber Bread” today. It was very rustic, somewhat like siding from an old barn.

Defying all expectations, Billy Idol’s new album is surprisingly listenable. Or at least surprising in that the contrived Gen-X/Rebel Yell redux approach is somewhat successful if not merely boring. Strangely, the last four songs unexpectedly drift into Cash/Petty territory.

Shatner is 74 plus a day.

March 23, 2005

Last night we celebrated William Shatner’s birthday with dinner and a movie. The movie was A Very Long Engagement” which was quite good. Except Audrey Tautou is obviously much closer to 30 than 20 so you have to suspend disbelief there to the point where you have to wonder what Jeunet was thinking — other than “The yanks liked Amelie, let’s get the gang back together.”

Ken thinks I’m hiding something from him. I am not. Nothing that’s any of his business anyway.

Ideas for the most spectacular CD release PR stunt should be forwarded to Ken or I.

I can’t believe I just realised that The Black Hole

was just a futuristic retelling of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.

Only with Anthony Perkins and without Kirk Douglas in a ridiculous sailor’s outfit.

Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes

March 19, 2005

It’s been a rough week. But things are slowly healing.

And dinner with my parentals was in the neighborhood of good. My mother’s birthday, Friends Lounge. I ate the Pork Africano. After wards, family photos á la Royal Tannenbaums.

I believe there are, officially, more Clap buttons than songs.

There’s music on Clinton Street all through the evening.

In the new Hot Hot Heat video, Steve Bays looks exactly like Kelen Porter. So much so, I believed it to be said Canadian Idol winner’s attempt to sound like the Strokes.

I’ve lately gotten back into cassette tapes. Probably entirely due to Steve L. giving me boxes of free tapes. Fascinating is getting out of the audio tape business in a big way.

I also have a box of 45’s waiting for me to take home, in exchange for LP’s and CD’s. Picture sleeve 45’s are the only records worth collecting. I don’t know why.

I’m writing you now just to see if you’re better

March 10, 2005

The first week of my lifestyle revision has gone swimmingly. I actually feel healthier. But then, I just got over a cold too. Chelsea has it now, after a week of drinking out of my cups and stuff. I can’t believe it took her so long to catch up.

Manufacturing of The Clap CD will commence this weekend.
