this ought to get me off the hook

from posting tomorrow
but who am i fooling...

this is a great song
even the video is good.
and slash can play guitar like no one else.
or is it that no one else can play like slash...
no. they will never get back together.
and yes. chinese democracy stinks.

i mean, check out the solo at the 2:57 mark

and this is a long overdue caveat. i like the songs i talk about. not neccesarily the videos.
that was VERY important and i'm glad its out of the way.

As long as you feel better.

And it totally doesn't get you off the hook. You have some making up to do, Sweetness.

there are few songs i can vividly remember hearing for the first time--welcome to the jungle is one of them. i was in college, we went to this club that was in this huge victorian house and each room played different music. it.was.awesome.

CK - ahhhh. that wasnt fair. now i'm on a little trip.
i'm back.

yeah that was a good song. sweet child of mine, civil war, dont cry (yes. both versions), knockin' on heavens door.
shall i go on?
ok. i wont.
but i do like GnR quite a bit.

I met Slash on a Miami-NYC flight about 13 years ago. We chatted while waiting to board and I didn't recognize him at first because, well...he wasn't wearing his signature hat. I accidentally knocked him over when he was attempting to put his bag in the overhead and I was trying to get past him. He laughed about it as I helped him up. Seemed like a good egg.

BE Earl - you lie. ok. that is very cool. he's quite amazing. didja bum a smoke from him? it seems he actually appears at some concerts now without his hat. cool hair. and you knocked over slash?! good GOD man!
i should go see him the next time he's in town. it's time.

Sometimes it can be fun to be hooked.

But not is you are a fish, of course.

Hey you... I was sitting here, re-reading The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron, and I thought of you. If you've never read or worked with this book, I think you should... at least check it out. I'm working on putting together a creativity/writer's workshop and I'm going to be using it as a guide (I took an Artist's Way class once and it was amazing). Anyway, have a look-see. If you're not familiar with it already, you may find it to be something that will inspire you!

sweet cheeks - good memories indeed. and perhaps you should go buy a lottery ticket or something.

goodfather - it's important. on a need to know basis. and y'all needed to know...

J cosomo - i never wanted t be a fish. a wolf, maybe. not a fish.

captain - was it something i said ?!

michelle - thats what running is for. im a wuss though. its too cold for me. i dont know how people run in arctic weather...

jess - i dont know how to make the rock on symbol. \,,/. does that work ?

diane - i should. and i'll put a hold on it at the library. and then probably leave it there along with all the other good idea books i've put holds on. not to be confused with all the good idea books i've actually purchased.

CG - i will be on my way in a jiffy!
