Hi there peeps!


I miss you guys. I think I was stuck in a baseball coma. Now the season is over and I can get back to more important things like updating this blog on a more timely basis. Can you believe those Astos?

Congats to the Sox of Whitness. Can somebody next year who doesn't have a team named after a sock color please win? How about a National League team while we're at it? Perhaps one with say- a Spanish name for a Priest! Yeah a Spanish name for a Priest. That would be way cool doood.
Sorry I have been a deadbeat Dad around here lately. Please forgive me for I have sinned. I have been watching the greatest game ever invented. It is such a joy to me to see the drama unfold and wonder what the hell is going to happen tonight in the this three act tragedy of Shakespearian proportions on the base paths. The lazy pace of baseball lulls me in to a meditative trance of relaxation and being in the moment where nothing else matters. Just the anticipation of the next pitch and the unraveling of a long season for some poor sucker who worked so hard to get to this point. i think of larry walker and what he went through to play a boy's game in the church of beisbol on a diamond in a blessed life. How lucky we are to be alive on such a beautiful foggy day on the closing the World Series. I am happy I know you and that our lives have somehow intersected on this musical planet.
P.S. I am playing a show Saturday Oct 28th at Lestat's (with Gregory Page) all ages

P.S.S. here is a strange little ditty I made up today.


politicians have eyes
tiny yellow fortune teller eyes
peering out and in and in and out
watching every breath you take
just like Sting

only itís Cheney and Wolfowitz
with snarky smirks across lizard lips
from nefarious late night secret trysts
with flicking tongues and snaky wrists

too many files and dossiers
too many donuts on silver trays
paranoid of moles and enemies
dilettantes with hearts in a state of deep freeze

knives hiding out behind cold fat backs
blackmail hookers with huge fake racks
while poor people living in cardboard shacks
roam like wolves in hungry packs

wrinkled suits with mismatched ties
hide cold black hearts chock full of lies
and grease stained shirts from old French fries
leave a paper trail of greedy eyes

he said she said we all turn blue
with pork barrel bellies poking through
Christian Muslim heathen or Jew
in one big pot of greedy man's stew

Ahhh baseball. And how this year was nothing more than a big FIX by MLB to insure that the Socks of White would win. The Astro's never had a chance. The Angels never had a chance...nor the sox of Red. It was all fixed...from the Grafanino error to the seven blown calls in the ALCS with the Angels to the roof being left open in the Astro's home park. Nothing more than a fix so Selig could pay back his old buddy Reisendorf.....ahhh baseball.

Cute poem

Dark yet funny, nice experimental stuff Stever. Mmm good world series, there were some hot plays, but the Padres were missing. God bless the Padres may they win next year for all us altar boys.

I was just beginning to worry about you the other day from the lack of blogging. Not that much though.

Those pigs remind me of a slaughterhouse! ;)
