Spam: Too Much Information

Hello Zealot,

I know how much you like it when I ramble, but I kind of just want to get to the point right now.

I'm working in a Christmas tree lot.

It's rather strenuous and it makes me tired, sore and dirty.

Here's a song I wrote about it.

Christmas Trees Are Killing Me

I posted another unbelievably engrossing interview on my weblog. This time I interviewed my friend, Tom Carns.

Tom Carns Interview

I'm playing New Year's Eve again at the Indian/Pakistani restaurant, Tikka Masala, on Haight street in San Francisco. New Year's Eve falls on the 31st of December this year.

The Milagro Salon at 5269 Broadway in Oakland is featuring on it's wall 18 gloriously illustrated pages of the "Bunny and Dude" book that Tom Carns and I have been working on for too long. I did the illustrations.

Say hi to Jenny or Loretta, the Hairists there.

Here's a song I wrote for their salon.

Concisely Yours,

The Totally Fascinating Tom Carns Interview

Dear Person Who Knows How To Read,

I'm so pleased to be able to bring you yet another fascinating and titillatingly wondrous interview. This time, I interviewed my friend, Tom Carns, and I feel that he opened up to me like a car door opens up to people who open it.

So sit back and enjoy this torture-free interrogation.

P: Hi Tom.

Here are the questions.

P: Do you have my ice cold nu-grape?

T: Yes and I drank it. The strange thing about it was that it made my lips go flip up and flop. Seems when I drink nu-grape I don't know when to stop.

P: Do you prefer fast or slow cardboard boxes?

T: I would upon the dew point.

P: If you were to ride a bike would birds fly about you singing?

T: Funny you should ask

P Is music good or bad?

T: Again, the dew point

P: In the past, do you ever go shopping for stuff?

T: When I am in the past I often go shopping for stuff but only when that stuff is in the near present.

And thus ends another scintillating interview.

Boy, I'm thirsty now.

Love Always,
