NICE SHOT! Is that the front man for The Dead Presidents?

In answer to the question, "Lord, please save me from your followers! Amen." That's almost a paraphrase of "Lawd Have Merced", isn't it?"--

I'll have to pray on it.

Close, but no cigar.

(It was a short prayer: "WTF, Jesus, ya old *, should I tell him?")

The temptation of the mouse in the frosty mug.

Day nine.

March 4, it is.
No phone.
PM is called for.
Please do so
At your leisure
And take a nap
I would like to
But keep lying down
And coughing up
Chunks
Of gunk
In the bunk

I never more than doze off
So I need Sominex
but am embarrassed of funds
Ah sleep, restful sleep, sleep, sleep

Venus In Furs
from The Velvet Underground & Nico

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girl child in the dark
Comes and goes, your servant, don't forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

Downy sins of streetlight fancies
Chase the costumes she shall wear
Ermine furs adorn the imperious
Severin, Severin awaits you there

I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears

Kiss the boot of shiny, shiny leather
Shiny leather in the dark
Tongue of thongs, the belt that does await you
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

Severin, Severin, speak so slightly
Severin, down on your bended knee
Taste the whip, in love not given lightly
Taste the whip, now plead for me

I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girl child in the dark
Severin, your servant comes in bells
Please don't forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

This link explains the song lyrics.

T Hocking, answering your question from the other thread about the Tioga upgrade.

I don't need no steenkin' upgrade and my apartment don't neither.

Here, take a look, but first lemme 'splain the plan here. No apartments get renovated until the tenants move out. Then, they get around to it, depending. Some empties get fixed up quick, others are left with stains, ehem, reminiscent of the stalls on yer CD.

In my place the carpet and tile are new as of 2012, and the same for the AC/heater. The carpet soesn't match the drapes because I have only a Venusian Blind Fly Trap in the window. The paint...meh.

I visited Feaver today in the Star Bar and went to his place around the corner. I like mine bettr by far, as it's homier by far, but I work at it while he sits in the Star Bar, has a monster TV at home, and is happy living over Bobby Staring's garage..,So WTF.

Thanks for the tour Mouse.

I see you still have your Merced H.S. Letter award (M),
swimming right?

I still have mine, Arlington H.S. Riverside Ca. football and tennis.
Mine is on a lettermans jacket that is way, way too small.

Lettermans jackets must have lost their appeal, you don't see them on kids much these days.

Our mementoes of years gone bye.

Thanks for that Mouse.

Say if you ever get around to it? A picture of your picture wall, and perhaps a line or two about some of them and why they hold your heart so?

Dingus, briefly, the wall started with the print-outs of various spires, then worked its way to the OK Corral fixation, then to the banner year of SF sports, tag-teaming with men's mags and mom's kitsch.

There will be pix in plenty. U betcha.

I happened to be shooting in the Indian Village next to the Yosemite Museum, when along came this giant gnome, another one-time denizen of the vicinity of North Merced County, like Delhi, being exposed to country ways, see. Then he had to become a "town kid," and that was followed eventually by an apprenticeship under that Batso dude with that whole posse. This old plaster of Paris map is just a foot taller than Glenn, probably weighs a lot more, too.
