A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Morning MS T,
So just woke up and while the espresso maching warms up, I set out some steak remn-ants for my Crows and Jays.

Suddenly the joyful sounds of Jays were echoing through my ears. I sepped out to see my friends but alas they were not.

I came back in and YOU had faked me out with yours. And now the java machine should be warmed up.

Trouble, my birthday was fantastique! Out in LA I went bike riding on the beach in a tshirt. The highlight, though, was going to a screening of Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (not to be confused with Harvey Keitel version), with a q&a afterward with Nic Cage and Werner Herzog! I was star struck.

@robyn: I know, I am a huge Werner fan. He's a powerhouse. He and Nic were talking about a film project where he wanted to get footage of an actual fire and was almost going to film in front of the brush fires in the California hills. He almost got arrested by the firefighters, so it didn't happen.

ok, to go more off-topic: the name BECKER was in commentbd and in a KISS cover story in ROLLING STONE, it said their "beth" was originally called "beck". and PETER CRISS, the 'cat-man', has a sign on his nj outer door: "in case of fire, save cat". awww. oh, and X-RAY BURNS had a short criss story this past sunday.
