A friend of mine inherited the loft he grew up in on Greene Street and he has never moved out-it has been his address since birth. His Dad passed in the early 90's and he STILL gets jury duty summons addressed to his late father as well as morbid stuff like...funeral home and cemetery ads addressed to his late Dad. He's been keeping a photo log of the snarky replies that he's been writing on the envelopes along with the Return to Sender general stamp....

Chris Spedding was actually one of the Wombles band when they played live. He figured that since he was wearing a costume, no-one would know it was him. Unfortunately, playing every night, with only one costume, made of 70s fabrics, I think it was pretty unpleasant by the end of it...

"The Joni Mitchell song "Lakota", from the 1988 album, Chalk Mark in a Rainstorm, features Cody's chanting. He made a cameo appearance in the 1990 film Spirit of '76."

Barbra Streisand is kinda ridiculous as an actress in "What's Up, Doc?" but it fits the movie.

Joe, I wanted to send you a picture of SWAGVENT, but apparently my camera will no longer connect to the computer. I am, once again, defeated by forces I don't understand and can barely keep up with. But take it as thanks, and if I ever can, I'll send the pix along.

In the meantime, I'll be building a panic room out of wood and cloth.

I think I have something by Elyse Weinberg that I bought after hearing it and loving it (maybe on this show). I filled it under W and forgot about it. Now I have to remember to look for it when I get home.
