the hurricane show

I am sitting in the house of Frizz thankful to be alive this morning. Just after mocking the hurricane all day yesterday I now respect Mother Nature. The drive from Philly to beautiful New Cumberland Pennsylvania was pretty hairy. There were huge trees in the middle of the turnpike and jackknifed lorries and powerless gas stations. Visibility was zero but the eurovan prevailed thanks to Friz's heroic driving. He was like the skipper and I was Gilligan. We couldn't buy gas so we left one of the cars on the side of the road. It was awesome dude. There was electricity in the air. It reminded me of the time I pitched for the Phillies in game 6 of the World Series. The crowd went wild with electricity just like a hurricane. There was even a topless girl named Isabel who ran onto the field and kissed me before she got arrested by the facist security guards. Ah... the salad days!

I can't believe that 60 people still came to the showlast night. All the other wussies on tour cancelled their shows. Kudo to all the folks who came out to The Tin Angel and ignored their government warnings. We don't cancel shows at 98 pounder records. We don't need no stinkin' badges. We break the law on stage.

Thanks Tony for getting the merch page up and running. We already got 16 orders yesterday. Yay! More offshore drilling. This will finance my campaign to get rid of playgrounds and stupid parks and have more offshore drilling on the coast of California. wow nature's not so bitchin...

Meester Poltz,
Please slip Carrie some tongue for me this evening and tell her to leave her hair just the way it is! I ordered my fat guy tshirt yesterday. If it isn't big enough, I expect a quintuple refund and extra special access to secret insider information and stuff. Have a great show!

Hi steve, thought you might like an update on Dennis Borleck. Ahem, well, for starters, he got a standing ovation last Saturday night at the Ould Sod by doing a Kareoke sing-sing to Muskrat Love by Captain and Teneille. That sort of ups the ante on the bravery table here. Devon

Dear Steve,

The next time you are stuck in a hurricane and think you are about to die, remember that we will always have San Leandro. By the way, I now live about 20 miles from there, so visit whenever you like.

Love, Karen "The Ex Mrs. Dr. Robert Driscoll" Baumer

P.S. Is there a way to set this up so that the Dennis Borleck updates are blocked out? There is only so much my fragile imagination can handle.
