November 4th and 5th The Circle Bar New Orleans

There was a time when I could eat oysters.
Documented here.
Twice since this photo was taken I spent the night returning all oysters consumed through plumbing back to the sea from whence they came.




Our gracious host…Picumentos

From a common pot,
rice and beans–welcome to our
tour, Andrew Webster


In the birthplace of
jazz, I scarf oysters and buy
rare new wave singles

Nov 6th…Athens Georgia Nuci’s Space

tour haikus by Franklin

Athens–doctors give
cheap advice to musicians,
which is so punk rock

Kerickie is cruel
but ‘Buffy: The Musical’
is quite well-written

Nov 7th Atlanta GA, The Shitty Club with the drunken Owner

Andrew next to a character with more brains than the Atlanta club owner.
This is what I think of rock clubs in Atlanta.

leaves and nations fall
but some things stand firm–a drunk
club owner won’t pay


we leave our host’s door
open this morning; cat lost
in Little Five Points


Jenny gets a call
from Ira Glass–we are all
pretty damn impressed

Driving Day

Alabama: free
jazz on late nite radio?
Sun Ra was born here


to some, Taco Bell
can be as comforting as
a mother’s kitchen

Nov 8th Carboro North Carolina

tour haikus by Franklin

Chapel Hill, North Carolina
once our bands were famous here
have kids changed, or us?


The Ivory Coast
are quite loud and like Mission
of Burma, a lot

Nov 9th Durham North Carolina, Duke University

I was asked to speak at one of the best conferences I have ever attended.
It was focused on the Public Commons and sponsored by the Center for the Public Domain. For two days I walked around in a cowboy hat taking furious notes while surrounded by a who’s who of international smarty pants academics and a tenacious omni-present Japanese film crew.
Franklin and Andrew stayed behind to bask in the knowledge (and when the conference wasn’t happening…the BBQ) while the rest of my band beat a swift retreat home to girlfriends and home-life.

You can watch the panels here.

Highlights include:
From Anarchist Software to Peer 2 Peer Culture: The Public Domain in Bandwidth, Software and Content.

Creativity, Appropriation, Culture and The Public Domain
was pretty great.
Mark from Negativeland really took this one over.

My panel…Public Domain Activism
was a little over-booked but it’s fun to watch if you are interested in seeing me look intimidated.
This was really a world series type event.

Conference at Duke
academics leaning left
like Carrboro trees


Soft beds, good bourbon
and a pheasant in the yard:
That’s the Maiolos.

Faint in memory
as a sparrow’s tracks on snow:
Our Ottobar show.

Nov 13th Hoboken, NJ, Maxwell’s

tour haikus by Franklin

Hoboken–oh where
are you, Individuals,
Bongos, and dBs?

Jay’s birthday. I spend
most of it alone, moody.
Here comes David Grubbs!

Black Cat: Jenny is
a hometown hero, but I
screw up my own songs

Hello, Bree. Remember me?
Luckily, she does.

a normal life. Normal life:
Dreaming of a tour.



There is a quality of life in Tucson that is different than DC.
Even the kitchens are better.

They have three videotapes of these shows from the late 70’s early 80’s at my local library. (When I get to feeling too poor there is nothing like the library)… Anyway, these tapes are bare bones…they teach you how to make a hat… a sweater and then there is a master class. Everything about these tapes made me want to knit like crazy… from the poorly played Casio theme-song of some happy Bach piece to the insanely beautiful weirdo hat that she’s holding in the photo below (god I wish I had the pattern for that one). The other neat thing about her is that she doesn’t knit the “right way” which means she’s basically changed the idiom of knitting for all those who fell in through her enthusiastic win Learn About Buying Coversyl Prescription Pills Online - Where to Buy Your Coversyl Prescription On Line - Best On-line Pharmacies - Trusted and ReliableBuy cheap coversyl Without Prescription.

In Feb I offered to knit hats for $40 a piece to raise money for DC’s Ladyfest this August.
So far I’ve raised $360 bucks… Not so bad. Thanks for all who’ve taken the risk.

These are the Ladyfest Hats.

Warn bought two hats

This was a period of knitting frenzy

as you all can clearly see

Hugh bought hats for him and his wife Charlene


(I liked Charlene’s a lot…she almost didn’t get it.)

My most recent hat request came from fellow knitter Sara Stollak

There is still time to get your orders in. I pledged to do 12 and that means there are three hats left for the knitting.



this is a tropical fruit I’d never tasted before and don’t really need to taste again except maybe juiced and tempered with booze. It was about the bitterest fella out there with a huge pit and strings that get caught in your throat. It looks pretty dramatic though.

We didn’t stay at the restaurant long enough to see if they offered eagles and spotty cats on the menu.
