Goin Down the Road Feelin' Bad (from May 30)

It's Wednesday, May 30, 2007. I'm thinking of going over to Wavy & Jah's House, a few blocks away from here at Rubicon, down Henry Street. Wavy's doing his art show on Saturday with the new band Revival All-Stars in Marin--I'm planning to go. Although I missed the 71st Birthday SEVA Benefit last week with Mickey Hart. I was planning to go of course--but a lot of money was missing from my bank account. 75% of it went to overdrafts. Now the Internet Radio is playing Midnight Moonlight. I would have gone. They moved it from the
Berkeley Community Theater to the Grand Theater--the new name for old the Avalon Ballroom at Van Ness and Sutter. "The Alaskan morning sunrise will be the brightest you've ever seen." "Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad!"

Will Scooter Libbey Go To Prison?

Well, I'm in the LGBT Computer Lab on Market and Octavia. I just told the lab person that something terrible happened (they like you to rent the computers for the 2nd hour & more for $5/hour): $175 was stolen out of my wallet last weekend. I'm still getting over the shock. No new clothes; I still don't have the BART fare to go to Berkeley tomorrow to get counseling and to register for the first day of the summer session of Berkeley City College. I'd like to visit Henry St. and the Long Haul, see B & Tina (I called Tina and she can't lend me more, tho I haven't told Jah), no restaurants, CD's, other bus rides for the job search etc., calling Laurie, etc., and more. This preacher was preaching, and when he was finished he picks up my wallet off the floor and hands it to me and says, "Is this yours?" I looked in it later and it was empty; there had been $175 in it--what was left for the rest of the month (before getting another job) of my SSI. A black man was mumbling something about "a handgun". I really didn't expect that. There was this New York Times ad in L.A.: "Expect the unexpected." So I guess I'll just have to wait until the 1st again. I put it down to the generalized climate of crime under the Bush regime: Hail to the Thief! Cheney's Chief-of-Staff, Scooter Libbey, got convicted by Republican federal prosecutor Fitzgerald Kirkpatrick of lying to the FBI, obstruction of justice, and perjury about outing CIA agent Valerie Plame about her husband Harold Wilson talking about Bush lying about the U.N. inspectors finding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq as a pretext for starting the failed war.

Memory Almost Full, the new hit album by Paul McCartney

Memory Almost Full, the new hit album by Paul McCartney

Hi! It's Wednesday, June 13, 2007, and guess what? It's my birthday! Happy birthday to me! I'm 58! Congratuolaions for surviving that long! And 58 more! I heard Paul McCartney's new album on the radio this morning, the hit single from the new album Memory Almost Full: "I have too much on my plate/ I don't have time to be a good lover/ I have too much on my mind/ I have a lot to discover/ It went by so fast/ It went by in a flash/ I'm not a part of it/. Maybe I can google the whole lyrics. I have a learning disability, bad memory, possibly Alzheimer's, and I can't remember all the lyrics. I'm going to google the Paul McCartnery website now; I've seen it before. It said on the radio that he's on tour in New York.

I saw the tour when Linda was alive twice at the Forum in Los Angeles. I'm trying to figure out how to get this post to go up and I was kind of lecturing this computer lab roomful of young students. I started out complaining about that as I explored elements of the the the posting for this Blogger program which they have changed and with which I am unfamiliar the class would make noises as a group and disturb and discomfit me and then moved on to how that was "paying attention to to the jot and tittle" and "straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel" and "finding the mote in my eye and ignoring the log in your eye"; quoting the Bible to them thinking they're Christians throwing stones. Then I wento on to a critcism of Christian fascism. And how I've always been a left-wing peacenik.
