“Think as I think,” said a man, “or you are abominably wicked; you are a toad.” And after I thought of it, I said, “I will, then, be a toad.” ― Stephen Crane
I have every Stooges and Doors album. Also Iggy just released a new album (why do we even call it that anymore since it's all digital) with Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme/Dean Fertita and Arctic Monkey's Matt Helder's called Post Pop Depression. Great music. His seasoned voice is really another instrument.
@Methadras: I've met his bass player, Mike Watt a few times.
Chick, you sure know a lot about music.
I did my thing for my community today to help keep it beautiful. And the Lord looked upon me and said, "That is good, now go in grace and MYOB where B stands for bizwax."And I'm all, "¿" In my neighborhood I passed a rough looking tall thin fellow in the sun too long today on a bike who greeted me kindly as he threw a large tin into a flowerbed behind a metal railing.I've spoken with the gardener who tends that side garden. I complemented his work. I interrogated his methods. We're buds. I said, "That flowerbed is not a trash bin." He's seated on his bike and misunderstood what I said. He offered me a cigarette. Twice. That's a bit generous, those things are currency of a type for his type. He was being friendly and generous besides. I had to say it a few times. "I saw you toss the can into the flowerbed." Now he's really misunderstanding. He thinks I'm remarking on his drinking in public and not thoughtlessly littering a tended garden.I passed him and heard a clunk in the middle of the street. From behind me he yelled at me "That can?" Now yelling back, "Yes, THAT can. But you still have a problem with bins. The street is not a bin." He rode his bike over the tin and crushed it, flattening it into the street. I continued into the bodega. Came out. Tin was removed. He had third thoughts about littering. Apparently.And I thought, see, even his type has remnant pangs of decency. All it takes is some public chiding.
I went to church today. Good sermon.
Look! It's Anthony Kiedis!
