im gonna bee real careful what i say
i donta want 1000 screaming bouncing czechs
a hounding n a pounding at me
luckily my praguish experiences are glowing
(but whatta cliche…how predictable…)
yeah im here to bring ya the olde news that praha
is good ha ha
all the stuff ya heard about
fountains of the great god poseidon
standing astride a strange doglike dolph-fish
kafka coming out of the seams
you want kafka kondoms
you want a kafka kockroach
gee that kafkas an ubiquitous bloke
statues doing wee wees
yes 2 giant automatons
waving their huge bebeebs around
and peeing water
while a crowd of giggling wimmen
have fotos taken
theyre gonna be disappointed with their hubbies tonite…
we had lunch in veg rest with tofu steaky
nice club
the vibe is very ….oh how shall we say
well we’re in bohemia baby right here
the real deal
after that
real absinthe
and the white widow pay me a call
the green genie n the white widow
show was pretty good
no complaints
a noisy guy eventually silenced
but well intentioned
lovely hotel
writing under a skylight
more pictures soon

    I get the feeling all roads lead to Amsterdam eventually…

    Guess that’s why you play a Jazz bass and MWP is playing a Jazzmaster these days.

    BTW – you might want to try something other than the Widow when you’re there. There have been some good recent outdoors hybrids since the heyday of the white strains.

    Please tell me you checked out the Bone Churches Orpheus.
    How I long to visit those.

    oh and PS, about being careful what you say,
    why should anyone apologize for a point of view?
    I don’t understand how someone else’s “Political
    Correctness” BS supercedes anyone’s freedom to
    think or *gasp* SAY what they think.

    “Live in the sunshine
    swim in the sea
    drink the wild air”
    -ralph waldo emerson

    a happy birthday card
    I picked up at Pikes market
    well, it said muse on the back
    can’t wait for you to see it
    bohemia’s rhapsodies
    one too sleepy
    to drive
    flew to the airport
    110 kmh
    that silver car
    it needs speed!
    the lion in the passenger seat
    either you’re Cinderella
    with the wicked ex mother in law
    or you’re mad child
    as a Cheshire cat
    she looked puzzled
    as all but my grin
    and it said
    I’m your kitten so then it’s
    both you silly
    she thinks I’m real
    funny these daze
    behaving like a
    stark raving
    she’s been putting up with the wrath
    for 30 years!
    and the tenderness
    artsy fartsyness
    the constant
    why why why
    saying the wrong things
    before their right time
    predictable of me
    gets me in hot water
    wonderful wonderful wonder full
    I do love
    myself a bit o mischief
    diamonds are a grrls best fiend,
    sweet and kind friends
    I’ve always been hypnotized
    looking into their deep
    lovely shimmering
    prism facets
    the raw material
    prima matter
    cut by time and pressure
    unique and treasured
    I no longer have fancy jewelry
    cept on my shoes
    silver and gems from india and tibet
    traded glossy photos for smooth cabos
    free trade hope
    I do Love diamonds
    wouldn’t want to own one
    ohpen to
    gazing upon
    falling into
    they say
    diamonds are forever
    stars are the diamonds
    of the night sky
    glittering galaxies
    there even when you cannot see them
    their esenscence
    glowing until
    time takes them
    into event horizons
    strange thing time,
    being that on the edge of the event horizon
    time appears to slow down
    to the outside
    some brilliant old math greek
    had a theory that was lost in Alexandria
    about spherical music
    no metaphor really
    reality just as in
    trinity water’s alkaline
    missing from local grocery
    in fact, June friend so gave her daughter
    that middle name for the giving water
    she was drinking on the wallowas
    so happy to have found another
    artisan well spring flowing
    better for you than the municipal supply
    like fiji luv, cause
    jus like in the good ol aquaduct days
    the city water is tainted
    for our own good says the gov
    lost the train….back on track
    the music of heavenly spheres
    must be the closest thing to having one foot
    in the light and the other in the shade
    hearing the colours inbetween
    memory as strange as time
    when the shell dissolves into the sea again
    the creature that created the pearls
    remains in the ether with the other floating fish
    in flux
    sleeping sheshells
    swimming dolphins
    starfish in tidepools
    can still hear them
    even though oysters cannot speak
    what a beautiful watercolour
    you painted
    talent in aces
    boy howdy
    was wrong about you being smart:
    Artiste dancing with
    under a rainbows weird arc
    yahoo sirius
    in vienna always
    where ever
    our feet

    Don’t you just hate it when Czechs bounce. 😀 Loving the blog when I get the chance, Steve, unfortunately it is blocked by the fun police at work, where I get most time to surf. Also, I seem to have missed the, can I say, meatier one recently.

    Hope you are well and looking forward to seeing you in that shit hole called England. Fuck ’em, fuck ’em all.

    Hey Killa!

    Sounds like things are going well in old europa. Happy to hear it. 🙂

    Just got back from a few weeks in the Arabian desert. I sent ya a pic from the camel expedition, be sure to czech yer email… More on the way as soon as i get em back – of centuries old ruins, the land where the prophets and crusaders walked, of dusty bedouin tribesmen and camels… Mystical. Mysterious. Hinting at layer upon layer of other lives and other worldviews. Should be right up yer alley.

    catching up on 3 weeks of missed blogs. oh, and mimesis was waiting for me when i got back. i really like it. it delves between the lines, between the veils, it transcends. wish i’d had it when i was plodding through the desert at a camel’s pace. though i did have a couple cool choich moments. was listening to the ole ipod in Aqaba when i heard “black and blue by the red sea” and realized that i was on the red sea…

    anyway, its nice to be back online and to get my daily dose of the time being. feeling a little spoiled by so many back-blogs to read at once…

    Steve, The Stones heard you were in Serbia, now booked to play there for the first time ever, in July, but there’s a furore as organisers are planning to drug the 300 horses stabled nearby with diazepam to calm them down for the gig! I wish I was a horse there… The Stones and drugs. c’mon :)// Wild horses. Maybe they could set them free in a field for one night. I know, I know….

    pretty please
    will have some to post from party
    forgot my camera
    for the second time in never before
    used a camera phone to call
    you shakespeare

    some folks
    hate to see
    a horse run free
    answer the call of the wild
    they’d like to break them
    saddle and spur and coral
    don’t trust a horses own nature
    to be true to the horse
    cause they know better than the horse
    whats best for the horse!
    want to make the free nature
    into something not free
    sad isn’t it sue cee
    and what a beautiful sight to see
    than a galloping sea
    of 300 horses
    the power and grace
    of those nobel animals
    loose in the streets
    hooves instead of wheels
    inspire some
    and make others
    run for safety

    “only notable thing was a border guard
    leering in to the van
    so he says
    you like peach juice huh?
    as sees me drinking the peach nectar
    which is plentiful n delicious up this way
    you like peach juice?
    but he made it sound very sinister
    for miles afterwards im saying
    so…you like peach juice…HUH?”

    god only knows why
    but i felt compelled to google…

    [peach juice “cunning linguist”]

    the very first result in
    web search
    was this
    vegan forum

    and the very first result in
    image search
    was this
    “spellbinding milky way photograph”,
    which appeared in a
    blogspot post dated…

    November 18, 2006

    …the very same date on which
    this next post was made…

    I’m counting down the days to Brighton and London now.
    I don’t know about other fiends but I get so excited at seeing you live but also anxious that after it’s over it’s likely to be a few years before we see you again. That can seem a scarily long time, especially as we’ve been lucky enough to have visits from you in 02/04/06 & 07.
    I’m conscious that you find it hard to leave nk and the little uns so I’m intending to make the most of these two gigs.
    Hotels booked for both so no rushing for trains etc.
    Safest of trips. I can’t wait!!
    Thanks for making the effort and the sacrifice.
    It’s really appreciated SK.
    Love you more,

    Dave m
