Finally, Mega Big Record Label paid Jethro for the last two or three months worth of work, but who's keeping track? Not me. I'd rather stay married than keep track of his biz.
So I had to go get things. The kids have been walking around with holey socks for at least a month. Time for me to fire up the pickup truck and go to Sprawlville, the town north of us which is bigger than this one and is slowly melting into ours.
I put on my hoodie with the pictures of Johnny Depp all over it, I flipped the hood over my head, and I ducked through the rain drops. My hair is still kinked into ringlets. It's okay. It's alright. I could feel down today; I had a wicked unexplained chest pain yesterday. I feel better today. I want to feel better today. Johnny can help cheer me up.
The truck, by the way, has been to the garage for a new water pump and got a few things tightened up. Couldn't we all use a little tightening up? I got bits that could be jacked up a little. So it's running, although not very cleanly, and for how long we don't know. Also, the original exhaust manifolds are very crusty by now. I think if I reached down there and poked them with a screwdriver I could make them shatter into rusty pieces. In other words, it's developed a throaty nasty growl. And I kind of like it.
Thrift store, got rid of some junk. Bought a Calvin & Hobbes book. And a book from the thirties about movies. COOL. I did not buy the 70's cabinet stereo. But I might.
Zellers. Socks and undies. Change daily.
Sunrise Records. I felt lightheaded as I walked in...and there right in front of me...there they were...
And now they're mine! I'm listening to the Peppers right now on my headphones and yes, it's as good as the Real Critics are saying it is.
You may already be aware of my love for Jack White.
I have tried very hard NOT to love Kiedis. He is just so bad. I've read Scar Tissue. I know how bad he is. So so so bad. And yet, despite the self inflicted damage, lookin' so good...How can I help myself????? And he's singing now. Yeah. He's putting some effort into it instead of just lying there with his hands behind his head grinning. oooooh...
