schmalentines day

photo by pablo

This is the yin to the yang. I have been here in Austin for a spell and I am getting excited about flying home for this Valentines Day show. Ms. P reminded me of Happy Valentines Schmalentines from Answering Machine. Here it is below for your consideration for a Grammy Oscar Madison Twinkee Dog Nut. I must have been pretty bitter when I wrote and recorded this. Today was my 35th day in a row of doing Bikram Yoga so all I know now is love. Woooo hippie guy Joe. I make me sick with all this lovey dovey crap. No I don't. YES I DO! What an idiot.

Has anyone seen the new Woody Allen flick? Match Point? Bueller? Anyone? It's really good. I give it 2 middle fingers straight up the old wazoo. Seriously folks- go see it. Great tension and funny London accents and more twists than a french cruller. Crueller? Bueller? Poo ler? POO- ler? get it? Poo? I'm cracking myself up. Hi I'm 8.

See ya at The Bellyup on V day. Gregory Page is opening so we'll probably sing a poo load of sauces together too. It's a dinner show and they are serving poo on a stick. oh man- I gotta stop.


Steven i pooed my pants on the wrestling mat Poltz

Hmmm, that song sounded like a friend of mine named Richard. It's nice to hear your easing up on your colonic phobias. I think you should really show the world how you truly feel about the pressures of valentines day and take a big shit on stage. Then pick it up and eat it to show the audience how much you love even the shit in the world. Then have a big huge hershey smile and go into a romantic ballad of special heschel.

Pleeeeeeease. Come on. Pleeeease

I am still waiting for Match Point to come to a theatre near me. I need some Scarlett.

Will the poo on a stick be deep-fried? People will eat ANYTHING if it's deep-fried & on a stick, you know.

Happy to be accompanying you on your journey to the looney bin,

you are a freaky-freak-freak...i think you need to take a day off from all that sweating, it's making you write real goofy-shmoofy.

Hey Stevie! Thanks for the bitterness -- but it was p, not me. :) And now it looks like you stood him up for the movies too.... and after he took that purdy picture of you.

I predict heartache, but in the meantime, here's some LUV,

hi steven-

it was nice to hear from you, but i'm not a seattle seabirds fan. i dig the steelers and was pulling for them. did you confuse me with that queer from rainy day records in olympia? i'm not sure how that could happen, but you are pretty much capable of anything, so....

match point sucked!

just kidding. i loved it and i love scarlett and i love woody allen for making a scene where she walks in the rain wearing a tight white shirt then has sex with that hottie jonathan rhys-meyers. what was your favorite part and what snacks did you purchase at the concession stand? i had a red icee and sno-caps. no, i had sno-caps saturday at capote. i had milkd duds on friday with my red icee.

remember when we saw melinda and melinda? our first woody allen movie together....dreamy.

when we go see brokeback together, can we share some bon bons?

miss you like shalom,

that is so funny. i do remember melinds and melinda. and boy did you guys ever beat up the sea birds. congrats most of all to your grandma. she has seen all 5 lombardi trophys. i heart her.
i stood your brother up for match point so now i have to take him to see transamerica. can't wait.
oh... at match point i saw it at the alamo draft house here in austin so they have waitresses that bring you food or beer or bon bons. i had a diet coke and buttered popcorn and then i ordered a double scoop of amy's ice cream. chocolate. mmm amy's! the waitress sort of looked at me like i was a pig.
misssssss you jorge.

all this poopy talk is making me feel ooky. please don't poop on stage and eat it in front of us at the v-day show. if you do, at least smile with your mouth closed.

Yeah, match point was great. Scarlet Jo is so hot, and the movie had great tension and good looking scenery and beautiful people and clothing .. what a great film. I'm stoked for the v-day show. i'll bring my audio stuff to record it and share it on the archive for those who can't make it. thanks steve for being awesome and knowing 409324 songs! .. and greg p opening? .. classic. i'm stoked to see what songs you two do together.

It was a sad day 4 me too for some reason ...untill a friend reminded me that it was only "singles awareness day"... he said "happy singles awareness day" and I laughed, not really wanting to laugh, but it was better than how I felt before.....xxooo.....much love anyway!!! (with help from yoga, pilates & alot of music)******* OK, i prayed, too.
