happy guy, hey he's a happy guy

Sorry I haven't written in a long time. I don't have any excuses except for the fact that I was holding my breath underwater and almost broke the world record. I was also in Virginia and discovered that those people out there drink pure grain or cane alcohol. I can't remember what the hell they call it but they are crazy and they mix it up with kool-aid or something like that hawaiian punch stuff. All I know is that it destroys your brain cells and memory.

What was I talking about?

Thanks for the show at Lestat's. It was recorded and it is 3 CD'S LONG AND WE STILL MISSED 3 SONGS. Oops- I hit the caps lock. It will be available in 14 and a half days.

I saw Fahrenheit 9/11. I am going to see Outfoxed and I am going to see The Control Room so I should be really preachy the next time I'm on stage. I don't think I'll even sing anymore. I am just going to talk politics. It is going to be my own version of Meet the Press.

I also saw Anchorman:The Legend of Ron Burgundy and I totally dug all of the San Diego references.
It is the All Star break and my Padres are 2 games out. I will be singing the National Anthem sometime in Sept.

I am in the middle of reading East of Eden by Steinbeck and I am obsessed with the Hamilton's and the Trask's. I keep looking at everyone if they as worried about the two Salinas Valley families and that evil woman Cathy. I guess this book was in Oprah's book of the month club. I didn't even know she had a book of the month club. I ve never seen the show. I wonder if Oprah will still talk to me about it

Have you guys seen Eyes Wide Shut? I saw it the other night in my hotel room on HBO and it scared me like a little kitten on the Fourth of July. I fell asleep before the end so please tell me what happened. Was it a dream?

Come to the shows in Northern Ca. This week. San Francisco on Wed and Berkely on Thurs. Lisa Sanders is opening the shows in S.F and Berkley. She is spectacular and you will love her. I will be in Sacramento on Friday night. Dennis Borlek is driving up with me to sell shirts and cds. Should be scary having that idiot around. Just kidding Denny.

I need someone to help with the discussion boards to fix them please. I don't know SQL or sequel as they say. If you know it please contact me through this website or Tony. We want to fix it so it is easy to post things.

I am sorry for not writing in so long. Please forgive me. I promise it won't happen again. I'll walk the dog everyday and water the plants and do my homework. I promise ma I do.
