Doh! Goddamn lazy kids, Americans, jackass tourists, titheads, what is this world coming to?
While I’m trying to figure out what needs to be said, I’ll do one of those “random 10” things, or at least random things, while we git this dun, heeyup, MBS bought me a Classic IPod for Christmas and I can finally play that game; if the list is heavy on the Nick Cave or Nellie McKay or shoe-gazing shit or what have you, forgive me, it’s a new iPod and I’m still tweaking the technology.
I’m Not – Panda Bear
I think the only problem westwards was Zeke walking in on nekkid girls, in Kingman, AZ, decent Murkun technology to help me, my last cigarette the day we left.

The cabin fever has almost passed; not completely – there are shards of me still grinning maniacally and reflecting moonlight – but the worst is over. Tomorrow promises more sun and no snow, the wee ones a full day in school, my love and I a day in Durango. Just in time, is all I have to say, the three-some feet of snow we had (and the resulting 20-hour power outage), the four days stranded inside and the eight of us wondering when the Donner Party would commence was enough to send even the most stable of us careering downhill aimed quite deliberately at the sturdiest pine. The White Noise was consuming bone and nail and thank the Gods for small favors that we’re not eating our shoes, or something.
So yeah, I’m back here and all that, you know - THAT. Except I have 4 other people to write about now and the whole "Patriside" joke seems, well, a bit stale. The times they are indeed a'changin' or at least a wap-bap-a-loop-bap-a damn sight different. If anyone has an idea for a new blog title, by all means, give it up, I could use something besides a good smoke, don't ya' know.
So, aside from computer problems and, mainly, the logitics of moving myself and my kids here, the sky had to dump itself all over the place, massively, just to mess up my thing, this thing, why you're here reading and all that.
It's all good?
Yes, all good...
To the ends of the Earth,
Through the labyrinth.
