sitting on a park bench. five little girls with bad intent. hey, aqualung…one of my all time favorite guitar breaks…god, tangents already. i know i said i’d be gone this week and next. however, through the good graces of the girl, here i am pounding out this weeks picks from a motel room deep in the heart of new mexico. just a solid king jack 1 iron away from the rio grande river. pretty damn sweet if you ask me. props to the girl for saying i need to do this for week 3 and next week for number four. yes, even while on vacation.
‘scuse me while i sip some absolut and rocks. ok. last week was stellar with 9 for 10 making up for a pretty damn dismal week 1 and a lack bloody luster 3 for 10. so, over all i’m 12 for 20. nothing to brag about but above 50%.
rolling thunder and monsoonal rain pounds outside while bright gashes of liquid light hit the early evening sky. this i gotta watch. shades of nam and long ago echo deep. time out.
as always, anything i dish out here is just for fun. taking anything i say and making book on it would be suicidal at best. rent. food. and vino money come first. capisco? good.
rock ‘n’ roll.
