Playin' ping pong on his honeymoon
Some sketchy characters Maya sketched on my whiteboard last time she was up here.
Mark Richard, The Ice at the Bottom of the World
Richard Hell & the Voidoids, Blank Generation
Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band, Safe as Milk
Pere Ubu, Dub Housing
Never will get tired of Blank Generation. Or Dub Housing. Hey, Joe, was watching Police Women of Cincinnati last night, looking for the Polar Bar and a Hudy Gold sign and wherever that place we ate breakfast when I got off the train that had the guy taking bets behind the counter who remarked out of the blue "Johnny Bench? Playin' ping pong on his honeymoon when he shoulda been upstairs, takin' care of business!" and thinking of you and if you're still reading this, or even if not, happy new year!
