Well I didn’t forget, but seem to think that not much has been going on, in fact that isn’t the case much has been going on.
Solemn fact one. I have purchased a ticket back to America for July 17th, please spread the word that I do demand a party and fan fair at my return to Chicago Ohare. Afraid to say it had to be done, my folks are missing me, and I have a niece to play with.
SO with all that solemnness aside, I have lots to look forward to and have been getting down to much scrumptousness and planning for Nowhere here in London. The sanwiching gig is going as well as it could be and with the pound now doubling the dollar I can look forward to padding my travel fund for late this year for yet another adventure out side of America, (you see how I am? not even back and already planning and plotting an escape)
Last weekend I attended a wonderful cabert show in Brighton to fundraise for the Burrows at Nowhere, there was stapiling 5, and 10 pound notes to bodies, nails being hammererd into noses, granny striptreasing, fancy fan dancing, ukelele playing by the fantastic Brother Goat, exotic women doing perilious costume changes in cardboard boxes whist avoiding being stabbed by sharpened stakes, and of course the flight of the bumblebee interpertations. Oh no that wasn’t all, but I guess you just had to be there. Followed by a night in the park with skanky drum and bass on a portable PA. And when the Brighton police arrived they said
“Keep it Tidy” and left like a whisper in the night.
Oh goodness just another reason the UK is superior to America.
In America we would have all been hauled off or had guns shoved in our faces, not that this has happened to me before in America, but I just imagine that is how it would go down.
Another project that I am currently working on is getting a Old army fire truck out fitted with a PA system and propane throwers on either side, I will be helping to get this baby down to Spain for Nowhere, I must get it from my pops when it comes to liking big trucks.
So besides that it has been relatively calm.. HA! just kidding, I forgot to mention the Hoe-down in Brockely a few weeks back where we had a warming fire with corn bread and baked beans on toast, I taught clogging to a few speical ones and felt for a moment like I was in the hills in North Carolina not in a park in central London.
so kids the good times keep on coming, there is talk of a cycle down to Brighton (50 miles one way eek!) in a few weeks time and of course more good times in the city, so I am sigining off. with love hugs and smiles from a fantastic spring time in London
ps if anyone knows of some potters in london who would graciously give me studio space for a pennance let me know, I am desperate.
