Performance at Wholistic Expo

One week from today I’ll be performing on stage outside of the San Diego Convention Center as part of of this enlightening event – http://wholistic.in/ My sets will be short, but you can catch me as I try some things TOTALLY NEW with my performance on Friday at 1PM and Saturday at 10:50. See you…

 

The Diversity of Disobedience

I do not believe in Civil Disobedience. Civil Disobedience is a misnomer. It is our civic responsibility to act out when government no longer treats its citizens with civility. As a youngster I was drawn to movements demonstrated a true spirit of community such as the general strike in San Francisco in 1934 to the…

 

Liquid Reality LP Review By Kevin Matthews

This sophomore effort from singer-songwriter Amy Arena is the polar opposite of her angsty spoken word diatribe-filled debut album, which was released in the mid-90s by Domo Records. Apparently, Arena’s experience with regard to the release of her debut album was less than satisfying. As she states in her bio, she was “taken for a…

 

Honkies

The silver-haired, but still full-of-vigor guys around here are so miserably white-bred, when asking for Pall Mall cigarettes they pronounce them “Pail Mails” as though saying AH is too ethnic. Or, perhaps I have it wrong and they’re still mad about the British and don’t want to sound snooty. I’ll require further research.

 

Survivalist

A very happy man came into the Bait and Tackle shop eager to talk about archery in the store with a far spread reputation. He was tall, happy, healthy, and strong. At first, I was pleased to be dealing with someone so contented. Of course, I’m not the girl. I just sell gas and cigarettes.…

 

Country Folk Wisdom

The other day a new friend said to me, “You see, there are two types of people in the world. There’s your Dodge people and your Ford people and each of them think they’re right.”

 

Hiatus

I have many floral descriptions of why I’ve been absent, but I don’t feel like sharing. Nah, nah, nah, nah. My aunt, and as another aunt pointed out, second mom, passed away last week and though I tried to get there to say goodbye, my choices have taken me too far physically to achieve such…

 

Property Value

I noticed, for the first time, a gated community in our quiet hick town. I also noticed that behind the gate existed pre-manufactured homes. I think they call them modular homes rather than mobile homes. Either way… you can imagine my laughter.

 

The Whole Year Inn

I think, but I could be totally wrong, that I’m biting “The Whole Year Inn” from “Leaving Las Vegas” with Nicolas Cage. If I’m wrong, then I’m thinking of a Quinton Terrantino film perhaps themed around Elvis that I don’t quite remember. Regardless, The Whole Year Inn might as well be established right next to…

 

People Are Strange

When you’re a stranger. Seriously. I know that Jim Morrison loved the desert. That’s why I just don’t like him. I live dangerously close to the “high desert.” Recently, I gave my cd to a girl who said she writes. The local paper here felt like they were too “old” to write a review on…
