With this mixed up fury

Crazy Beauty

Healthy to find all these feelings inside
As I set on my trek with a headstart back to truth

(A headstart back to truth, or you? I never knew)

A hostage to kindness

and the wheels underneath her

Saturday, May 19, 2018

I tell you this

No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn

Ive probably posted this before, but it still stands

American Boy, American Girl

Most beautiful people in the world

Son of the frontier

Indian swirl

Dancing to the midnight



I hope it can continue a little while longer

I hate posed pictures

Candid pictures are the way to go. I want to capture a slice of time, not some set up fakery

Sunday, May 13, 2018


Days may be cloudy or sunny
We're in or we're out of the money
But I'm with you always
I'm with you rain or shine

Ruth Buzzi

More like Ruth Buzzikill

In the 70s

There was a hip trend to act like LOL I drink all the time LOL I love liquor LOL, like Foster Brooks, The Dean Martin schtick, etc.

Now that weed is becoming legal / more mainstream, there's going to be guys who become pot guys, pot equivalents of Foster Brooks, The Dean Martin schtick, Etc, only with weed. And it's not going to age well and it's going to be looked upon as stupid in like 10 years

It is knowing

Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream
It is not dying, it is not dying

Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void
It is shining, it is shining

Yet you may see the meaning of within
It is being, it is being

Love is all and love is everyone
It is knowing, it is knowing...

... that ignorance and hates may mourn the dead
It is believing, it is believing

But listen to the colour of your dreams
It is not living, it is not living

So play the game "Existence" to the end...
... Of the beginning, of the beginning

Of the beginning, of the beginning

Bruce Foxton

Is the ultimate underrated bass player. Check out set the house Ablaze

Blogger won't let me post pictures

Unless I take them in real time. Why do I even use this anymore? I'm fairly certain 0 people read this except me. Whatever, I'm only doing this so my son has something to base his life on.

There are more beautiful songs

Than Bill Evans's "Tenderly" from the Everybody Digs Bill Evans album, but I can't think of any right now. That ending part where it sounds like he's not done even though he should be is the most charming thing ever.

Someone needs to cover white punks on dope

By The Tubes. I've probably posted this before on this blog but fuck it, I'm old and this blog is too. Don't make me break out the old chestnut that Oh Yeah by Roxy Music needs to be covered by a contemporary Country artist. Seriously, it's a perfect fit.

Saturday, November 18, 2017


To pretend to be happy would only be idiocy

Lo Dee lo Dee lodee doh


Would you lie to me
If you thought I was wrong
You deserted me
When it all went wrong

But it's too late to wash my hands
We're caught in a trap
Set for a man

Mike Douglas was cool

I used to watch his talk show after school almost every day, I always thought he seemed like a cool guy. Completely random thought.

Saturday, July 1, 2017

Well when i die don't you bury me a'tall

Just nail my bones up on the wall

Beneath these bones let these words be seen

This is the bloody Gears of a boppin' machine

In fact the entire album Donald Fagen The Nightfly

Is great. Okay bye

I can't wait till I move to the city when I finally make up my mind to learn design and study overseas. I'm sure I've typed those lyrics Nine times into this blog by now, but I love this whole album

Oh also

Donald Fagan's Maxine is godhead

Charkie azzawi. Jk, attn Charlie

Give my music a chance. I gave my dad's music a chance after many years of resisting it and ended up enjoying a lot of it. Give me the same courtesy okay bye

PS you're so cool

Try crawling like a viper through these Suburban scenes. Make love to these women, languid and bittersweet. My teacher questioned me when I used​ the word "languid" on something in grade school. I had to tell her it was from a Steely Dan song. Ask Jeff Cope, Charlie. I appoint him musical arbiter. okay bye

The torch I carry is handsome

It's worth its heartache in Ransom

And when the twilight steals

I know how the lady in the harbor feels

Twin Peaks season 3

The fuck

Well I tried

To get radio Clambake going tonight, but my microphone only comes out of one speaker for some reason. I started to mess with it but then I got sweaty

I like telling jokes to animals

Because they look at you blankly yet approvingly, like YESSSSUH! no matter what you say to them

Thursday, April 6, 2017


Puts a rosey patina on everyday life. But, isn't that the main goal of life? Isn't that what we're trying to do with their lives, in other ways, every day? And, if you refuse to put that rosey patina on your life, aren't you declared insane?

Friday, March 24, 2017


Put out the fetch-candle
If you're coming through
And be my familiar spirit
If you want to
Deliver me unto my desire
Deliver me unto my desire
I'm up on the heights
I'm still up on the heights

Or play the game

Existence til the end

Of the beginning


Those guitar licks from Holiday In Cambodia while standing on some random lifeguard tower


I was here
If you're reading this, you are here.
One day, you won't be here
And someone will read this
While they are here.

So just jump
on the conveyor belt
and relax...

I just cried

Inexplicably, At the tap dancing scene in la la land. I love southern California.

Friday, January 13, 2017

That it's over now

You're a big fat cow

One sweet dream

Pick up the bags, get in the limousine. Soon we'll be away from here, step on the gas and wipe that tear away

It's just a rumor that's been spread around town

By the women and children. Chet Baker

I would beg and steal

I jumped out of a car once, with a guitar, and sang a completely tuneless (yet heartfelt) version of Love Me to a girl. She didn't go for it. WTF

Let's roll the dice

In a fool's paradise

Saturday, November 12, 2016

My love love to meee eeeee eeeee


Pink Floyd -Nobody Home

Is criminally overlooked and underrated


How much brain power is devoted to remembering lyrics? Sometimes I know all the words to a song that I haven't heard in years, and I wonder how much toll that's taking on my brain

Tuesday, October 4, 2016

Ladies and gentlemen, it is a pleasure to present on my album Mr. Dizzy Gillespie. Blow!

Yes I got some candy kisses for your lips  Yes I got some honeysuckle chocolate chip n kisses full of love for you
Probably a repost, because I like this song.

Thursday, September 29, 2016

They need to start

Putting The Cramps songs in movies.
There, I called it. If you finally do, at least give me credit.

Some Jesus freak musician guy i used to work with

Once said that the guitar in The Cramps's "Call of the Wighat" was"classic swing guitar", even though he was diametrically opposed to it. I still agree with him, about this one issue only.

The generic music that they've used for years in the background of Morongo Casino commercials

Is a blatant rip-off of New Rhumba by Miles Davis. It infuriates me everytime I hear it. I used to hear it in other commercials too, but I guess Morongo Casino, in this area at least, has a monopoly on that stock music.

Thursday, September 15, 2016


So this is just about the best song ever

When your eyes met mine it was eternity

I don't care if this might be a repost, this is a great song.

Monday, September 12, 2016


The harmonies of Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66.
Bim Bom? Nigga please, those harmonies are outstanding.

Friday, September 9, 2016

Helllllooo Dad

I'm currently getting down to Wes Montgomery. Is music genetic, or is good music just good music? We may never know the answers to these questions.

In live shows...

They always pretend like they're leaving, the crowd chants and screams for them to come back, then they come back and play one or two more songs. If I was in a band, I would tell the audience if they had to remain perfectly quiet otherwise he wouldn't come back. See how quiet they could get. When you come back on stage, the crowd would erupt.

Blood sweat and tears

Spinning wheel is an indulgent yet audacious and ballsy song. I wonder why they didn't become more popular.



Drive West on Sunset to the Sea

I live nowhere near Sunset Boulevard, but I've actually driven West on Sunset to the Sea while listening to Babylon sisters. I have also experienced Santa Ana winds, and I've been to TJ. Oh Lordy, have I been to TJ. I've never jogged with show folk on the sand though. I've gotta with on that. Oh, hashtag steely Dan or whatever

The Doors

The only band that represents a specific time period. What I mean is, the doors always evoke an instant 1968 vibe. Any Doors song comes on and it instantly transports you to the late sixties, for better or worse.

Wednesday, August 31, 2016

Oh i can't sleep at night

Since you've been gone

I never weep at night

I can't go on

Don't you know I can't take it?
I don't know who can.
I'm not going to make it
I'm not that kind of man

Sunday, August 28, 2016

Thursday, August 18, 2016

And in the end

The love you take
Is equal to the love
You make

Leave your worries behind

So grab your friends
Get the train comin' through
Climb on board
Where you leave's up to you

Leave your worries behind
'Cause rain, shine don't mind
We're ridin' on the groove line tonight

Sunday, August 7, 2016

I predict

A moderate earthquake on California's Central Coast within the next 48 hours.  Maybe.
Edit: I was wrong. To all the people who say I can never admit when I'm wrong, there, I just did.

Steely Dan -green earrings

The Greek medallions part sounds like a man having a conversation with a guitar. I may have posted that before but who cares

Saturday, July 2, 2016

Oh yeah

I forgot that sorry by the colourfield has one of my favorite little guitar bits ever. Such pleasing tones

The Residents The King and Eye

Is like if aliens heard Elvis Presley music and tried to interpret it in the best way they could

To a friend

Speaking of vibraphones, which we weren't, but have you checked out Dave Pike? Jesus Christ I sound like my dad. But really, Dave Pike

I have become my jazz-invasive father

In halos

And rolls and gold folds

Kerouac. Look it up, future Charlie.

In cold water

There are men high up there fishing
Haven't seen quite enough of the world
Ooh, I ain't seen a sign of my heroes
And I'm still diving down for pearls

Oh, let me flow into the ocean
Yeah, let me get back to the sea
Let me be stormy and let me be calm
Let the tide in and set me free

I'm flowing under bridges
Then flying through the sky
I'm traveling down cold metal
Just a tear in a baby's eye

Oh, let me flow into the ocean
Oh, let me get back to the sea
Oh, let me be stormy and let me be calm
Let the tide in and set me free, set me free

I am not the actor
This can't be the scene
But I am in the water
As far as I can see

Oh, I'm remembering distant memories
Recalling other names
Rippling over canyons
And boiling in the train

Oh, let me flow into the ocean
Let me get back to the sea
Let me be stormy and let me be calm
Let the tide in and set me free, set me free

Set me free, I wanna drown in cold water

Cracks between the paving stones

Like rivers of flowing veins

Taint no big thing

To wait for the Bell to ring

Taint no big thing

The toll of the Bell

Uncage the colors, unfurl the flag

Heaven loves ya
The clouds part for ya
Nothing stands in your way
When you're a boy

Clothes always fit ya
Life is a pop of the cherry
When you're a boy

When you're a boy
You can wear a uniform
When you're a boy
Other boys check you out
You get a girl
These are your favourite things
When you're a boy

Boys keep swinging
Boys always work it out

Uncage the colours
Unfurl the flag
Luck just kissed you hello
When you're a boy

They'll never clone ya
You're always first on the line
When you're a boy

When you're a boy
You can buy a home of your own
When you're a boy
Learn to drive and everything
You'll get your share
When you're a boy

Boys keep swinging
Boys always work it out

So John Lennon

Longs for his mom in a spiritual and semi-mystical way in the song Julia, then later does the song God that throws all belief away? I wonder how he would feel about it now, if he was still alive.

You see, now that I'm old I realize so much more about life and its machinations and pitfalls. When I was younger, and an older person would tell me this type of thing, I would blow it off. But it's real. You gain more Vision as you get older. You always think you have maximum vision - when you're 5, 10, 15, 20. But it always gets wider. You just don't realize it. Blarr ramble ramble ramble

Isn't it a pity?

Now isn't it a shame?
How we break each other's hearts
And cause each other pain

How we take each other's love
Without thinking anymore?

Forgetting to give back

Isn't it a pity?

My son

Will automatically cherish movies, music, and other Media made in 2019ish.

Instant breakfast

I am out of season all year 'round
Hear machinery roar to my empty sound
Touch my heart and feel winter
Hold my hand and be doomed forever

Monday, February 29, 2016


People say I'm crazy, doing what I'm doing
Well, they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin
When I say that I'm okay, well, they look at me kinda strange
"Surely, you're not happy now, you no longer play the game"

People say I'm lazy, dreaming my life away
Well, they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me
When I tell them that I'm doing fine watching shadows on the wall
"Don't you miss the big time, boy. You're no longer on the ball"

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go

Bobby Troupe

It winds from Chicago to L.A.
More than 2000 miles all the way,

Won't you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip?

Won't you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip?

Get your kicks on Route 66!

Revolution 9

In its entirety, very loud. Dig that stereo separation. Cathartic somehow

Monday, February 15, 2016


Deacon Blues is one of my top 5 favorite songs ever. Let this be known, let this be broadcast.

I am forging ahead

In life, with whatever seems right to me. So far so good. Rad on all fronts.

I couldn't sing

Then I could sing, now I cant again. So unfair.

Monday, February 1, 2016


Naive and wise with no sense of time
As I set my clock with a heart beat, tick tock
Violent and mild, common sense says I'm wild
With this mixed up fury, crazy beauty
It's healthy to find all these feelings inside
As I get on my trek with a head start back to you

How come

History of the world part one isn't available on any streaming service that I can find? Mel Brooks, do you care to answer?

Wednesday, September 2, 2015

Let's talk about cars

This song reminds me of death. You die, then you inexplicably hear Mexican radio as you're floating up. Then the EMT's/mortuary workers are also inexplicably speaking French as you lament the loss of trivial things. Then everything slows down and fades.

Saturday, August 15, 2015


Our love is at an end
But you say now you have changed
But tomorrow will reflect love's past

I drove

through the Mojave Desert once, listening to (the Anthology versions of) while My Guitar Gently Weeps and Something. With 400 horsepower and a broad by my side, it was iconic to say the least. A real dawn of man- history repeating-timeless ocean of sand thing. Not sure why, it just happened.

Someone should make a video of sweeping skylines and life in Manhattan

Set to Miles Davis's All Blues. I've had that idea since I was maybe 20, ex girlfriends will back me up on this. But I have no skills. someone make this ok go

Garota de Ipanema translated

Look what a beautiful thing
More full of grace
Is it girl
Coming and going
A sweet swing
Sea Way
Golden girl body
From Ipanema sun
Your balanced
It's more than a poem
It is the most beautiful thing
I've seen pass
Ah! because I'm so alone
Ah! because everything is so sad
Ah! the beauty that exists
The beauty that is not only my
That also goes alone
Ah! If she knew
That when she passes
The smiling world
Is filled with grace
And it is more beautiful
Because of love

Sunday, January 18, 2015


The Groove Line is still one of my top 20 favorite songs ever. I let some large kid named Sanders listen to my cassette tape of the song at Summer School, & I earned street cred from it. That's not why I like it though, the song just rules.

Thursday, January 1, 2015

Right now

In actively spending my new years Eve with guys who are RAPPING and freestyling

Monday, December 15, 2014

I love you son

With your curled up joker lips and rapier-sharp wit. You are gold

Bracing myself against the dresser. Listening to Blue In Green by Miles Davis, knowing that it will also be played at my funeral

RIP Fred Berry

I know I'm like 11 years late, but I enjoyed him on what's happening. That guy could dance

Sunday, October 26, 2014

The guitar solo in

I'm Free by The Who is so bitchin. I'm no musician, but I sure wish I was. But I love that concise little guitar riff


New Order - Procession is a great song

Jim Morrison

In "Five To One" from The Doors In Concert... Is good. To be honest, I forgot what I was originally going to write that's okay. No one read this except me
EDIT: Oh yeah. Going to say is that it's my favorite vocals by Jim Morrison. So manic, yet controlled.

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

So instead of a big bang, maybe it was

More like a de-arrangement of stacked matter? Has anyone looked into this?

Is it possible

That instead of a big bang at the beginning of the universe, that the universes may have all been stacked up in some way? Seriously.

Saturday, October 18, 2014

You know what?

Ventura Highway by America is a solid, awesome song. Although, there are no "gator lizards" on Ventura Highway, it kind of makes no sense. I'm sure there's a deeper meaning, but I shouldn't have to research it, you know what I mean? hello future

Wednesday, October 8, 2014

The lackadaisical drumming on strawberry fields forever

Really makes it for me, man

Attention Morrissey

Miserable Lie by The Smiths (studio version from"The Smiths" joe dallesansro cover) is the best song ever made, by any artist. I salute you. Damn.

Does anyone else remember this show? I sure do, but the internet apparently has forgotten it. I'm pretty sure it was Los Angeles area only, where a guy with glasses in a monotone voice would show you how to draw heads, houses, birds, etcetera. Anyone?

Fee Waybill

Where are you Fee Waybill!

PS white punks on dope is my top 50 favorite songs ever, and I maintain someone should record it in an acoustic version remake

36 hours

Rolling in pain
Praying to someone
Free me again

Well I should know by now that it's just a spasm

Like a Sunday in TJ
That it's cheap but its not free
And I'm not what I used to be
And that love's not a game for free

I love Santa Ana winds

Gives me an excuse to listen to Babylon Sisters at maximum volume.

The Who - live at leeds

Boy I love the version of Young Man Blues offa this album. It sounds like a combination of The Who, Led Zeppelin, and Black Sabbath all at the same time. And Roger Daltrey sounds particularly vitriolic.

I fail

At keeping the teen crowd entertained. Yes, that's a blatant exaggeration, but you know what I'm saying.

So i play

The  traditional 3 song radio clambake new years eve songs... To myself

When you smile

I blocked the song babe by Styx

Out of my brain this whole time. I just stumbled upon it and man 8th grade . Babe I love you. Oooooooooooooohhh Babe

Sunday, December 15, 2013

Matter of fact it's all dark

All that you touch
And all that you see
All that you taste
All you feel
And all that you love
And all that you hate
All you distrust
All you save
And all that you give
And all that you deal
And all that you buy
Beg, borrow or steal
And all you create
And all you destroy
And all that you do
And all that you say
And all that you eat
And everyone you meet
And all that you slight
And everyone you fight
And all that is now
And all that is gone
And all that's to come
And everything under the sun is in tune
But the sun is eclipsed by the moon

When one has nothing in itself - When there is no longer a refuge -
When you can not escape - When you do not know it jogging
Black as night - Yes, black as my soul -
Black as the waters - in which I sink
