    Wow, duke of the desert. Cool! That’s my kinda place. Glad you liked the mags. The one on the Badlands was influenced by a line in “ghosting” (isidore), it shaped the way I saw the place and conceived the article. If ma book ever gets out you’ll see loads of familiar images I think (and mentions of yon choich)… Was listenin all across Central America. And AENT was the backdrop for the rolling hills of mongolia and for rarefied desolate tibetan heights…

    (ya might enjoy this jungle river bit, from an empty headed column I was persuaded to write )

    hope ya make out okay with the vid. anything i can do oh king of the bloggy realm, feel free to ask. you can always fire me a missive at

    Thanks for the book recommendation for veniss underground. I really fucking enjoyed it!!!!! (sorry mrs k for the foul language.) Gonna look up more of his stuff. couldn’t put it down. What a grasp of language and imagery!

    tangent, but have you ever read Lawrence Durrell’s Alexandria Quartet? Considered baroque by today’s standards, but I love it. Seamy underside of alexandria, strange cults and mythologies, mediterranean images, romantic in the literary sense. It’s all about time and space. 4 cool books that overlap and underlap… One of my all time favourites.

    Hope to catch the choich in pennsylvania this summmer, if I can reschedule this 200 mile far north hike, air dropped into grizzly territory. workin on it…

    Great blogs lately!! Love seeing neumann back!!

    Some random thoughts..

    1)Pressies – How sweet! Very nice, generous fans, friends, fiends.

    2)Veganism – Something I truly don’t understand and forgive me if this has been addressed before and I missed it. I fully understand the position on NOT eating meat…but what is bad about yogurt, etc? I mean, if the cow has to be milked…and it doesn’t hurt the animal…is it more of a health issue for YOU or the animal? I am serious; I’m a bit confused. Maybe someone on the list here could help me out.

    3)Yeah, that’s one thing California has in spades – vegan food. I suggested some places to Sue for ya in L.A. – but figured you might already know your favourite vegan spots here (in Hell-Ay).

    4)Arizona in the summer. Yikes. You’ll forget that Sydney winter REALLY fast. 115 degrees F – it’s like someone stuck you in an oven. But rememeber Steven, it’s a DRY HEAT, haha. No, seriously…stay hydrated, that’s all I can say. And wear sunscreen!

    5)love, love, love

    Love ya, man! Yeah, you are hitting some weird spots. I’m looking forward to seeing you in Sellersville, PA. It’s about 30 min from where I live, yet I never heard of the place. Strange that Philly proper isn’t on the tour, but the theatre you’ll be playing seems quite charming. I can’t wait. Hope to squeeze in the Irving Plaza show as well…

    All the best,

    p.s. just saw the video of the interview you did in Hungary. you look great! tan and slim. perhaps a little grumpy with the interviewer, but whatever…that’s par for the course, ain’t it?

    Florida Report

    Florida is a mess. How long sice The Church came here? 17, 18 years? Most of the state is a giant real estate traffic jam and Orlando is nothing but a full-time mickey mouse interstate construction zone. But be it known to you mr SK, there are fans like myself who will stop at nothing to make the floor fill for a show, a body at a time, the only way.

    Jacksonville is the biggest small redneck town in the universe, be warned. The ratio of cultured art loving people is down skewed against the overall slick pop country numbers. Nonetheless it will be wonderful to catch these two shows.

    See the Dali museum in Tampa while you’re there, if you can. I know little about Ft Lauderdale except half the sorority girls at UF are from there and go back for spring break.

    Looking forward to it.

    Arizona in July is not necessarily a bad thing – July – August is monsoon season here and the place cools down a few degrees and gets frequent thunderstorms.

    Of course that means it isn’t a dry heat, so when the rain doesn’t come it feels very muggy.

    See you!

    daydreamer | 26 June 2006 at 5:19 am #

    Geez I step away for five minutes and miss three blogs! How did that happen?!!?

    My take on veganism is its an ethical issue whenever animals are mistreated. Factory farming not only abuses the animals, but produces unhealthy products. This day and age tho, its not as difficult to find humanely produced, organic dairy and eggs.

    Steve I totally relate to you freezing in the kitchen, typing away! Winter finds me in a similar situation, right down to the herbal tea w/honey. It sounds like your seasons are very similar to ours here in Central California, tho flip-flopped.

    eek | 26 June 2006 at 5:40 am #

    Cincinnati and Cleveland, John. And Indy too! Woohoo!! Ms eekie did indeed do the happy dance (I have to admit it wasn’t pretty though) when she saw those dates. I’m such a happy camper. More money to spend at the merch table!

    Awww…I don’t think you seemed like a raving lunatic in that interview, Steve, but I can pretty much tell where you moved into blogger mode! I couldn’t help but laugh at this bit when asked if most of your friends were vegetarians or vegans: “Of course, they would be very cautious about telling me if they were eating meat. I can unleash quite a diatribe.” Uh, yeah. That’s an understatement, dear! Very interesting read.

    Sorry you’re freezing your rear off. I agree with whoever suggested a space heater. those can be worth their weight in gold on cold days! Hope the baby bouncer feels better soon too.

    As for the whys of veganism (I’m not vegan, but I have checked it out), some people get into it for health reasons, but many (maybe most) because of concerns about the manner in which milk and eggs are produced. Much of it is produced in factory farms where efficiency and quantity of production is paramount to most of these operators (hard to call them what most of us would consider farmers — although there are farmers around who do raise their animals in more humane conditions).

    And when all those hens and all those dairy cows no longer produce enough eggs or milk, they don’t get put out to pasture, they get sent off to the slaughterhouse. Even the free-range/organically raised ones.

    Here’s the web addy (You’ll have to copy and paste. I can’t do a live link on these comments for the life of me!) of a article with more info.

    It is written by someone promoting veganism — I’m sure if you read an article by an egg or dairy producer it would have a different feel.

    As for honey — in what I have read, many vegans do not eat honey, but many do. Again, much of the objection to it has to do with the methods used in the production, especially in the more mass produced varieties.

    “And when all those hens and all those dairy cows no longer produce enough eggs or milk, they don’t get put out to pasture, they get sent off to the slaughterhouse. Even the free-range/organically raised ones.”

    That depends on who’s raising them, Holly. Look for small farms in or near your local area. That’s who we should be supporting anyway. That goes for your produce as well.

    There are not many food choices out there that are entirely guilt free (economics, ethics, exploitation, etc) In the end, its just a matter of where we as individuals choose to draw the line.

    eek | 26 June 2006 at 9:38 am #

    Sandy, I come from a farming community. Grew up on a farm (grain and hay though), and know many farmers. Smallish family farms, but many in the area make their living from farming. Many of the people are very nice, no doubt about that. The animals do get treated better — cows, pigs, and sheep get out to pasture, the chickens get more space (although most are still confined in relatively small areas). But the animals are commodities, and they are treated as such. And many of the small farmers still use whatever antibiotics and growth hormones they are allowed to make their animals grow faster.

    However, despite the better living conditions all of these animals still get sent to the feed lots and slaughterhouses when they are large enough (for the ones raised for meat) or can no longer produce enough milk to be profitable. And there they all face the same horrors. The chickens in small operations might avoid the slaughterhouse, but by getting their heads lopped off at home. I’ve never met a farmer — and having lived in a farming community for 41 years I’ve met a lot of them — who has “retired” farm animals.

    But you are correct — it comes down to what each individual is willing to accept.

    ‘ello Cleveland!!! ‘ello Cleveland!!! We hate you ’cause you won’t bloody play fucking Stonehenge. Play Stonehenge and all the celtic classics from your seminal lp. Tis a magic place where the moon doth rise.

    Seriously though, I personally know 4 of us from Cleveland who frequent your blog. You say there are 700 something people on here. It’s probably double and triple counting repeat visits, so you probably have maybe 200-300 on here frequently. Four on your bloggie from Cleveland (maybe more) ain’t that bad. Three of the four have seen multiple cities (3-5) on the last 4 tours. So you have quality fans here I assure you. We may also have the most envied Church & solo/related completest vinyl and cd collections. (I’m not kidding here fiends. Imagine multiple copies of all the rare 7″ 10″ and 12″ vinyl and CD’s. Plus poster collections fit to open a whole Church wing in the Rockhall. Step aside Yoko. If we could ever get a real rock museum for the real greats of music…

    That being said, I’m planning a relocation to Austin to join other family ex-Clevelanders, so seeing the Church one last time in Cleveland will be nice. Cleveland is not a great place but I will savor all those memories of youth impressioned with the soundtrack of the best guitar band of the last 25 years. I cannot think of a band I’d rather have fill those memories than the Church.

    Oh heck and darn, I ask one question about yogurt and look what happens! Everyone settle down now!!! I command it!!! 😉 (SK, taking over for uno momento)…

    Holly – thanks for very informative info and the link. Good stuff. What else would I expect from such a kind, sweet animal lover! Also, Steve, listen to Holly and your own advice – be kind to yourself – you couldn’t starve and sing in Spain! 🙂

    Sandy, thanks for your input too…I absolutely think you said it perfectly – depends on where you choose to draw the line with regards to your beliefs about ethical eating, etc.

    And Sue – jeez, what can I say about Sue? Yeah she’s nice for owning a farm – KIDDING! Sue is a goddess among goddesses, someone I’ve ‘known’ via the Church for years – she’s NEVER been anything but exceptionally sweet to me, and I know she would never even harm a cucumber. Much to Steve’s disappointment. 😉

    Cucumbers are yummy. See, we even have to draw the line with our veggies…huh!

    Steven, you always getting us talking about food!
    Hope it’s warmer in your kitchen now – and yes, get a space heater, with an auto shut-off for safety, and watch the baby and the chord and don’t leave it on overnight and I’ll stop being so neurotic now and yes I know you already have a wife AND a mother. ; ) (Space heaters are really great, at least your feet will be warm!)

    A small addendum to my comment above. I was thinking about this after I logged off last night and I wanted ya ta know…

    This past month my writing was nominated for a National Magazine Award in Canada (after the usual long years of starving and being totally ignored). On the training front, I was also inducted into the International Martial Arts Hall of Fame for my work with RMAX, the other half of my life’s work. Recognition by groups of my peers, people at the top of what they’re doing, but it never felt very important to me, just part of the marketing game. It was far, far more satisfying to get a simple line of positive feedback from someone whose work I admire tremendously, and who I consider one of my biggest influences. Thanks, man.

    Stay tuned, the best is yet to come…

    I just imagined a town full of Germans wearing bavarian leather trousers. Whew. Good to be located in a region that’s rather free of leather trousers actually. 🙂

    Can see the excitement mounting now over in the US. Seems ages ago now since the european tour & I’m JEALOUS!
    It’s wonderful to know that the music you’ve made has touched so many lives in so many countries.
    Truly great to see sentiments like those of Starfish which I totally agree with: “THE best guitar band of the last 25 years…..”
    You’re clearly much loved SK & you deserve that for all that given to us over that same 25 year period.
    Love you more,

    (Lucky for you I know an excellent vegan restaurant in Tucson – Lovin’ Spoonfuls. Oh yeah.)

    A Church show is all the cool breeze I need this July, thanks. We will welcome you like kings. Hot, sweaty, cheese-less kings.

    Oh for fuck’s sake Sue, give me a break. I said many of the fucking farmers are NICE!! How is that patronising? HOW? Many are nice, many are VERY NICE. If I hadn’t said that you’d be bitching that I thought all farmers were mean nasty people. Christ. But now I know better. No farmer is nice. Good to know.

    Drugs are just bad, you should try to use Herbal Alternatives as a temporary replacement to loose the dependance!
