I'm Going Out West Where the Wind Blows Tall, 'Cause Tony Franciosa Used to Date My Ma.


No, actually, I'm going to Negril. Because in my heart I am a sorority girl on Spring Break.

Be good, all, and I'll speak to you next week.

Posted by Mike at December 12, 2004 5:20 AM

Enjoy, Mike. Make sure to flash your tits and yell "WOO SPRING BREAK!!!" all week, like the trashy sorority girl that you are. You'll get all the bitches.

Flashing might not be such a good idea, assuming he does in fact have hair on his chest and real scars...

Negril is where i've been both times to Jamaica -- there's this beautiful curve in the road where the ocean laps a tiny beach -- i spent a lot of time at the Red Snapper, down the steps onto a little rock with the beach blanket, and painted when i was first learning to paint --

the second time i got married there -- there was a beautiful arbor at a local hotel made of red bougainvilla and hibiscus --

both times we stayed up on a hill with a couple who had built cozy houses behind their home -- the woman was an amazing gardener and had all these hibiscus and other tropical flowers and the place was full of butterflies and unusual birds, including one that was golden brown and orange -- our place had an accessible rooftop and the stars were so close --

i've been meaning to scan the photos for so many years now, maybe after Christmas i'll get to them -- i'm really glad i took pictures during the first trip, because when we went back to the Red Snapper, their runoff had killed the turquoise underwater plants beneath them

we were always too late at the local meat patty place to get the chicken ones, but the others were excellent, too -- all the people were so warm and giving, although my husband did most of the talking, so that we didn't get taken advantage of --

i hope you have a wonderful time!! :)

Iggy Pop used to date my ma.

Bob "Hogan's Heroes" Crane used to date my Ma. Before he was all Greg Kinnear-in-a-biopic freaky kinky. Before he was famous actually, just a radio DJ in NYC.

This one time when I was in the airport I seen Tony Franciosa. When we approached him, he told my mom how gorgeous she was and asked her if she wanted to have coffee. So i guess that's kind of like a date, right mike?

You should go somewhere and experience a little culture insted of Negril....It's pretty touristy.

Have fun Mike! Be safe!! Wear sunscreen!! Bring a cd player!! Buy some rum!!

Hey now wait a minute. Who farted?

..........They got some money out there they're giving it away
I'm gonna do what I want and I'm gonna get paid
Do what I want and I'm gonna get paid

Little brown sausages lying in the sand
I ain't no extra baby I'm no leading man
Well my parole officer will be proud of me
With my Olds 88 and the devil on a leash
My Olds 88 and the devil on a leash

Well I know karate, Voodoo too
I'm gonna make myself forget about you.
I don't need to make up I got real scars
I got hair on my chest
I look good without a shirt

Well I don't lose my composure in a high speed chase
Well my friends think I'm ugly I got a masculine face
I got some dragstrip courage I can really drive a bed
I'm gonna change my name to Hannibal or maybe just Rex
Change my name to Hannibal or maybe just Rex

Well I know karate, Voodoo too
I'm gonna make myself forget about you.
I don't need to make up I got real scars
I got hair on my chest
I look good without a shirt

I'm gonna drive all night take some speed
I'm gonna wait for the sun to shine down on me
I cut a hole in my roof the shape of a heart

And I'm goin' out west Where they'll appreciate me
Goin' out west
Goin' out west

Damn, but I love Tom Waits! If'n y'all get a chance to rent or buy the DVD 'Fishing With John', (it was a cable show) there's a sweet episode with Mr. Waits, another with Willem Defoe, 'nother with Dennis Hopper, one with Jim Jarmusch. S'all good....

Mikey...SPF 40. You should not be the sun's crimson plaything. Remember that. Enjoy a coconutty thing on the beach for me, 'kay?

Posted by: Deb at December 13, 2004 9:51 AM

Yes deb, i'm sure when doughty's on the beach he will be thinking of "Deb from the message boards" and surely buy a coconutty thing. Then he will come online and tell us all.

Posted by: Mark Dejan at December 13, 2004 11:07 AM

Oh Mark Dejan, I think you need a nice cup of herbal tea. I don't know where you are, but I'm in Michigan where we're getting 3 inches of snow and 40 mph wind gusts. A coconutty thing on the beach is my vicarious thrill for a cold Monday. 3 inches of snow, man...3 inches...does that ring a bell to you, Mark Dejan?? 3 inches? Look down.

Posted by: Deb at December 13, 2004 11:23 AM

"Hummingbird"- That's the coconutty thing to drink in Negril. I love it there, Mmmmmmmmm the food, the sun, the.........................:)

Posted by: bee at December 13, 2004 11:25 AM


No further explanation needed.

Posted by: Mark Dejan at December 13, 2004 12:23 PM

back to the mayer, you should be happy mayer made fun of you instead of actually complimenting you, sending you into a creepy, shy silent spiral. i have to stop reading these sites because in my little world, there is enough room for both doughty and mayer and i can't have them not liking each other.

.....You ain't got time to worry 'bout mass extinction
Just try and get along with the human beings
Big Wooly Mammoth gonna wear that coat
In the middle of the summertime

I just wanted to say that I think the new formatting on the responses is a little hard to read.
I like the new format, but I don't like having to squint when I wanna read the random post mumblings.
Just a thought.

I've been on vacation for a week and came back to check out the blog and it turned into a vicious pile of inane postings?

You can trace it back to pretty much when the CD release hit mailboxes and everyone starts logging on. Who cares about Bee's lyric postings and Deb's big ass or James the S, Rob from Grand Forks and all the people who have been here from pretty much the beginning.

I read this blog to see what Mike is up to and all your petty bullshit just turns the me off to visting this site.

Too bad you dont have a moderator like SCUG, Mike. At least Mat was pleasant enough.

And to all the rest of you, I am sure you will spend your lunch hours buring my post in yet another 3" pile.

I'll be reading elsewhere.

Posted by: no, you suck at December 14, 2004 3:56 PM
