Loretta Lynn and Jack White — Portland, Oregon.
What’s on your mind?
Aloha, Suz…! It’s official… I saw a kidney-shaped blob today…! The Doc told her she was due on my B-day too…! ;-)
aloha tut — just remember that less than 10% of babies arrive on their due date…. how’s paradise tonight?
That is one very strange (and cool) pairing up top, Suz!
Mighty Voggy again, however, now we’ve got some serious rain headed our way and I’d just heard the first thunder clap announcing it’s arrival…!
hey newton — how’s the west bay tonight? ain’t it? i never figured the front guy for the white stripes would pair up on a song with loretta lynn and yet it works for me…
the rain will wash away the vog?
evening, Suzzz — firedogs
Oh, please, Loretta…
Hey, Suz, CT and Newt! Palm Springs condo closed today, but it’s rented until the 26th, so I can’t go.
CTuttle, I didn’t know you were going to be grandpa. Congrats!
hey ppd — how’s the south south bay tonight?
hey loohoo — how’s socal tonight? that means it is producing income for you until the 26th?
It’ll sap out all the particulates in the air…! ;-)
pretty good, thanks – how’s everything up north tonight?
I’d heard Jack White was a huge fan of Loretta’s. Strange pair with voices that match up perfectly. Not to mention humor.
sweet… and you could use the rain so a double win
wind finally died down and the rain clouds moved east — so i’ve got clear skies and its 14 degrees colder than it was at this time last night
JHFC Suz – what a cool catch for the vid – I loved it !!
And since you’re here – heya CTtut !
jesuschristo – I love the sound and feel of that video.
That was my thought too, voices are a great match. Hi to all.
hey openhope — how’s the sound tonight? they sure looked liked they were having a good time
Mahalo, Loo Hoo…! I have mentioned it here a couple of times before…! :-)
hey jayt — about forking time you showed up *foot a’tapping*
where the hell you been dood?
hey margot — how’s ohio tonight? glad ya liked it
It’s really been warm here. Just after I hit the sales for some sweaters, of course. Yes, PS is rented pretty much through March.
Portland a C-W town?
Not any more. Pretty good tune anyway!
Drive by. I am alive, but just barely kicking. Working at an insane level of intensity. Will check in later. Give Jane and Co. my best. Namaste.
Dood…! Longtime…! You’re up late…! How’s Indy tonite…? 8-)
Hey Loo Hoo…
And jayt – how’s things?
sweet! money in your pocket!!!
hey starbuck — how’s your side of the coast range tonight?
always good to see your fonts ofg — even on a drive-by. namaste
I’m sure you have. But congrats anyway!
Dryer and cooler, like the coast. Went to Edgefields yesterday. First really nice weather to do so, and I’ve given up on any significant snow there.
Snow joke either!
I’m wondering how many times Jayt saw Fair Game?!
iirc busted was gonna be at edgefield last week or this one — celebrating his girlfriend’s bday and his (which is later this month)
Yeah, I was hoping to crash the party but no dice.
Frontline’s got an amazing three part program on right now PDT
On what? Got no TV reception at the moment.
holy crap – I can’t type that long.
I’m taking a break from defending.
trying to find a nice, slow job. One can only do that shit for so long, and then it’s time to take a break and get some sleep at night. I can do without food, but no sleep will mess a motherfucker up.
If one is gonna be any good at my job, you gotta care, and if you care, it’s gonna fuck you up eventually.
I made it 4 1/2 years this time, so I don’t feel bad at all/
I’ll be back.
:( i’m sure they had a good time celebrating, no matter where they ended up
Coal Miner’s Daughter.
i hope ya find that nice slow non-defending job dood. sometimes ya just need a forking break — i’m glad ya recognize that and are doing so.
didja hear that i’m gonna be a grandma in april? jen the bride is now jen the mother of my future granddaughter
The day they were going did turn out to be drivable, so I bet they went.
Happy Birthday busted, if you are lurking.
you aint woman enough
Hey Suzanne– I’m liking it!
Oh, FYI, I heard on the grapevine …

hey mzchief — that’s the weekend i’ll be in the sf bay area at my daughter’s baby shower :( how ya doing tonight?
Great video, Suzanne.
Portland is the next Seattle in alternative music. It always was. Even more so now.
Seattle is stuck up. Portland is humble, like Seattle with two less coats of paint.
If Cobain had moved to Portland from Aberdeen for keeps, he might still be alive.
Vids of two of my three favorite Portland bands:
Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside – Danger (my nephew Jeff opens the song with a guitar riff)
Portugal the Man – Guns and Dogs (they’re from Wasilla)
Now thousands of octpus’ have turned up dead on the beaches in Portugal…..
didja hear that i’m gonna be a grandma in april?
no darlin’, I didn’t.
That’s just f’ing great. Enjoy it to the fullest, and remember, they gotta go home eventually !!
hey et — how ya doing tonight? and YAY!!! good news about strider!!!
Btw, Suz, in other news, Cassie has gotten her first Ivy League ‘A’…! The Beach Haus is celebrating… 8-)
I wish you well on your SF trip in your immediate future *and* advanced congratulations on the the new grand baby!
I am warm and mostly amused. And yourself?
You too Suzanne. You are the candle to my window–the zenith to my azimuth, the anchor to my wunderlust. As I tilt and heave to with Rocinante, you are my Dulcinea the terrible strength of my right arm brings forth energy for you to light the world. *poof*
good news tut — she just needed some settling down time before she hit her groove….
check out the upper LH scrolling picture frame at
hey thatguy — you feeling any better?
aw shucks dood, thanks
Thanks for the links! I’ve heard good things about Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside but haven’t heard them live yet. And, yes, there are Inuit and other folks who’ve come here for refuge from Alaska. We are in desperate need of jobs though.
This evening, finally but I felt like shit all day. I’m supposed to have a job interview tomorrow so i have to find a way to keep from coughing in their faces.
i am colder and enjoying my evening — tis down to 41 with clear skies so its gonna get colder.
…remember, they gotta go home eventually !!
That’s the best part of being Grandpa/ma…! ;-)
I’m feeling the faint edge of the approaching Spring … :)
i am sooo looking forward to spoiling her… she will be julianna renee
do we still do music on this thread?
I have no new snake songs, and I’m positive that I can’t beat the one that Suz put on top, but….
please, somebody beat me to the weak punch….
fingers and toes crossed for ya dood — drink some soothing hot tea before ya go in for the interview to help with your cough
fork yeah we do tunes dood….
Loretta and Conway.
How’s your son, Jayt?
Closest thing is the square dance contingent. :)
loretta’s banned from radio song
Maybe in the far SE side.
A Tune =:-O
my my my that guy — tis you and leeroy *fanning face*
Must get to India one day…
Saw signs that seemed to indicate a dance near the volcano at Mt. Tabor.
Speaking of which… Can you believe this…
Canada Bans Classic Dire Straits Song From The Radio
Money for Nothing…! *gah*
I didn’t know *that* was in the water. Must warn mouse-y and froggie!
Honestly – I don’t know.
He was just killin’ shit – then he got to New York and couldn’t pass his PT – couldn’t run.
Asthma – outta the fuckin’ blue. It’s a dischargeable thing. We don’t know if he’s still in or already out. fuckin’ military can’t tell him his status.
Maybe he’s he’s discharged medically -maybe he’s still in – maybe he has to go and finish his active duty. We don’t know, and the fucking military moves to thee beat of last year’s drum
I dunno. I wish I did. The kid is brilliant. It’s killing me.
I don’t know.
lardy tut, it’s all huck finn’s fault
fuck dammit jayt, is there a congresscritter that ya can get involved?
This Quantum Physicist is coming on Coast to Coast radio. It’s a woo-woo broadcast so I have to see what he’s going to say. Something about being a quantum activist.
Huh? Schrodinger’s cat was a Quantum Activist.
Hey! Good T shirt idea!
Yup, friend-of-feudalism Harper et al are not Canada’s (or anyone else’s) friends.
Here’s a flash from high school.
…great guitar player and a great friend…
Oh wow…! That they’ll discharge ya for…! It is a looong process tho…! He’s at Cornell(or IU) right now, right…? 8-(
Boo. So sorry, Jayt. It is a horrible situation. All best wishes.
Ugh. Check out this little telegraph from China to India:
BEIJING, Jan 17: China today said its policy that Arunachal Pradesh is a “disputed area” remains “unchanged”, days after it issued stapled visas to two Indian sportsmen from the state which it claims as “Southern Tibet”.
(excerpt from ‘China says its policy on Arunachal Pradesh remains “unchanged”,’ Jan. 17, 2011)
Whaaa? The Chinese government just thinks it owns everything and everybody. Endearing, huh? Wonder when they’re going to whip out the “India Tibet has always been a part of China” routine.
Brilliant idea. Jayt, get your congresscritter on it.
I’ve been having, for the last 3-4 weeks, dreams of living another life, though just, perhaps, 20-30 percent different than this one. These are very long dreams, but with the same normality of my awake life.
I’ve been wondering if I’m experiencing the quantum slip into a parallel universe….
I kinda think that I’ve used up my congress-critter responses.
It’s been a fight since day one, and I’ve already busted my Congressman, and both Senators, chops just to get him where he is.
I may be outta stuff; I think I’ve already played all of my cards.
On the other hand – parents do tend to be a pain in the ass, now don’t they?
hey robert — how’s PA tonight?
So are you robertarend having dreams of living another life or the other dreaming they are robertarend?
A congress critter can’t do anything…! One has to pass a PT test…! 8-(
If he’s anything like his pops he’d have maxed out on the Push ups and Sit ups tho…! ;-)
We are about to shift from night temps in mid-twenties to PM temps of single digits….
happy lucky 100 starbuck!!!
Ohmygod, I never thought of that. Am I the other dude’s imagination?
The first time I heard this song announced I thought I was losing my mind. Then I nearly threw up because I hadn’t thought of sloe gin since one night in high school I got very, very drunk and then very, very sick on sloe gin fizzes.
I still get little nausea waves thinking of sloe gin fizzes. Yuk.
P.S. My digging re the water issue on hold at the moment …
It’s a variation of an old Buddhist proverb….
hey adam — how ya doing tonight? i tried sloe gin fizzes – once. no flipping way i would try them again, much less pitchers of em like in the song
I have a similar disposition towards Southern Comfort…! ;-)
aw, what the hell.
If nothing else, they know who I am, because I don’t send letters, I walk right the fuck right into their offices. Every single one.
I just don’t know exactly what I’m facing yet – which pisses me off.
fer gawd’s sake. I’m ready to go to war – but I gotta have it clear….
Did you know I said brrr first? If not, I kept you off that century mark.
Saved your butt, did I!
and i am so forking grateful dood — sucks to start off my week snagging my own dayam lucky 100
PWB has turned on the wells and turned off Bull Run. They blame it on turbidity.
Yeah, right! So now we drink pharmaceuticals and ionized water from Hanford instead.
Was it just one episode of asthma during the one PT test…?
Congrats on the 100!
I’ll let you buy me a cuppa sometime when I am around your neighborhood.
ya gotta stay polite and not go all shatner on them
Same. I cannot think of either Slow Gin or Southern Comfort.
Thanks Loo Hoo.
deal dood :)
time for some sleep — be well
Sleep well, PPD.
No man, it was tested, and he is officially messed up.
tell ya what – I’ll talk to you later about it. ok?
and please don’t take that wrong. I consider you to be a friend.
Jayt, been thinking about him, let us know what happens please?
*clink* *heh* It was sooo good going down… ;-)
Crap– I do not want to glow!!
this will calm ya down jayt
No prob…! Didn’t mean to pry…! *g*
Well, India is also a mess.
ooooo neil degrasse tyson on the daily show — my favorite astrophysicist, even tho he did knock off pluto
Yeah, the Pluto thing is stuck in my craw, too.
i saw an interview with him where he was talking about how the 3rd graders all over the world will never ever let him forget their outrage — he was pretty humorous about it
oh screw that – only got so many days – let’s roll:
oh by the way – thank you.
life kinda sucks at the moment – HOWEVER we never give up.
I’m watching Pioneers of Television, the Season 2 premiere on sci-fi pioneers on TV: Lost In Space, Star Trek, etc. on PBS
never — gotta keep putting one foot in front of another
To follow up from last nights comments reguarding guns in public venues around famous politicians.
The left might think they have to allow someone to carry a weapon close to the president so as not to offend the radical NRA, but the members of his security detail have no problem prohibiting guns in and around their charge.
I believe that the same thing is true for Sarah Palin. So, how do I go about putting Palin in conflict with her own security detail, with rational gun owners and with the people she is fund raising for.
I bring this up because you might have heard about Palin speaking at the Safari hunting show in Reno, but her next fund raiser is in Lubbuck Texas. And it is for a Christian school. Guess what? The venue she is speaking at doesn’t allow firearms. This is a standard rule for city owned venues.
Will she and her followers complain about their second amendment rights being infringed? Will they show up with automatic weapons to show they have rights? I would encourage them to do so, so that the Lubbock police can take them away. I didn’t make these rules the city did.
Today there was another school shooting in LA. What is the weapon police of the Christian school she fund-raising for? Is it a gun free zone? Will Palin ask that they change their rules because she believes that the answer to gun violence in schools is more guns. If they have a policy of no firearms will she call for them to change their rules?
What does the school have to say about violent rhetoric? What is their policy if a student verbally threatens to hurt someone with a weapon. What if he draws bulls-eyes on teachers and principles? If the Omaha shooter do something like that what would the school response be?
I have calls into the school to answer the questions.
i saw that earlier tonight — amazing all the memories that brought back…
I saw an Astronomer sporting a shirt that said ‘If Pluto is a rock then Uranus sucks’ at base camp…! ;-)
It’s going to take time.
hey spocko — how was your day today?
Very awesome! To be that good at that age? RAWK OUT! The next Stevie Ray?
Palin believes guns should be legal in schools?
Same here, but it’s strange to see Angela Cartwright & Billy Mumy at their present age…And June Lockhart, she must be in her 90s…
G’nite all. Sleep well! “:)
Tha is something that I need to determine. But one think I hope to do is drive a wedge between Palin and the NRA.
Schools have sensible rule. Extremists in the NRA say, “The answer to guns is more guns.” and that turning a school into a “gun free zone” is simply making it a victim disarmament zone. So Palin comes down on the side of the school then she is against the NRA. If she comes down on the side of the NRA she is against school. If she is against the school she is saying they should allow guns. Okay, I’ll inform the principle (and the media) that the school allows guns, Now, how does that jibe with what Christ says? How does that make the parents feel following the LA shooting today and the Omaha shooting earlier this month? (where the principals were shot.)
Aloha, jayt and mz…!
Checking out as well.
G’nite Suz and pups!
As a writer, if I can someday achieve proximity to the great Rod Serling, I will feel complete…
Good night, jayt. Good to see you. Take good care.
Spocko, be interesting if Palin wanted guns in schools. I do remember seeing that some nutcases want guns in colleges.
i guess its time for me to mosey on off myself. g’nite all and thank you for letting me hang out with ya tonight.
It’s nice to know that you appreciate him. I enjoyed the questions he raised on the Scary Door. I read something about his struggles, the ability to keep putting out quality work was maddening.
Pleasant dreams, Suz…! *g*
I didn’t know he wrote the screenplay for Planet of the Apes…
Dang. Can you believe he’s still performing? GO!
Hi mod its me I had to many windows open and I published two diaries with different titles can you please delete the diary labeled Drug Test math they should because they should both be the same diary sorry.
Was Suz the Mod for the nite did I just miss her?
I love Portland. Grew up there. Watched St. Helens explode from our deck. Graduated Lakeridge. Those were the good old days…
