SUNNOFA!
I just found out there was a Huge FREE ska show in Philly tonight, and I stayed in and cleaned the cat.

I mean, she needed it, but - damn!

motherfucker.

sorry. had to get that out.

fuckin' Bigger Thomas was there, too, man.
Why was I not informed??



now that I think....
I actually knew about this show, but didn't know it was free.
still - you think Bearclaw woulda' called if he had known.



man, I'm pissed about missing that show.
I mean, I was, like 30 minutes away.



Anyway - Slackers this weekend. that should make up.
maybe.

probably not.

A Long December
2004-12-27 19:03:13 ET

A long december and thereís reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I canít remember the last thing that you said as you were leaviní
And the days go by so fast

And itís one more day up in the canyons
And itís one more night in hollywood
If you think that I could be forgiven...
i wish you would

The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that itís all a lot of oysters, but no pearls
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl

And itís one more day up in the canyons
And itís one more night in hollywood
If you think you might come to California...
i think you should

Drove up to hillside manor sometime after two a.m.
And talked a little while about the year
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower,
Makes you talk a little lower about the things you could not show her

And itís been a long December and thereís reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I canít remember all the times I tried to tell my myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass
And itís one more day up in the canyon
And itís one more night in hollywood
Itís been so long since Iíve seen the ocean...
...I guess I should

Na na na na na na na na na na na na na
na na na na yeah...

when all your good intentions
have left you feelin old
your latest inventions
have left you feelin cold

it's then the gypsy says
come on over have no fear
he says daddy died last year.
I wish he were here.

all my grand imbitions
they've done just what they're told
they're at the bottom of the river
where the old white fingers scold

said the women dug this river
filled it with their tears
they said daddy died last year
and I wish he were here.

I'm leavin New York City cause it's been filled up with rich
kiddies from the suburbs that make my earlobes itch
the morse code of my fingers
tappin as they twitch
reads "daddy died last year
I wish he were here"

the kosaks and the kozars
they're happy in their cage
the laws of inhibition have them stuck to a page
they said "at least we'll be remembered
screaming 'revolution's near'"
said "daddy died last year,
I wish he were here"

the concubines and the constables
they, too, are in a cage
the women round the congressman
they're hot and under-age
they say times they are a'changin,
well everywhere but here.
daddy died last year,
I wish he were here.

So the lawyers they are bleeding me
with daddy's old harpoon
they hold it in a glove
made of barren woman's womb
She says she wants my bones
to decorate his tomb;
well, daddy died last year
I wish he were here.

see, daddy died last year
I wish he were here

daddy died last year
I wish he were here

Pretty paper
2004-12-22 02:39:04 ET

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
Wrap your presents to your darling from you
Pretty pencils to write I love you
Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue


Crowded street, busy feet, hustle by him
Downtown shoppers, Christmas is nigh
There he sits all alone on the sidewalk
Hoping that you won't pass him by


Should you stop? Better not, much too busy
You'd better hurry, my how time does fly
And in the distance the ringing of laughter
And in the midst of the laughter he cries


Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
Wrap your presents to your darling from you
Pretty pencils to write I love you
Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Give em some time,
and they'll come around
keep givin' em hell
and they'll give in sometime

Keep reading, keep writing,
keep knocking down the door
Stay strong in your thoughts
even alone in a crowded bar

and one day,
on the dark lonely highway
the bright lights will finally
turn your way.
