    so many things have happened in the last few days, heres a quickie summary 

    gnarls barkley

    flew home from ORD -> LAX and sat next to the smelliest man in America. there should be a law against being that stinky on a plane trip.

    virgin air is the best airline in the world. i always feel so grateful any time i am on it. everyones so nice. the tech is always so good.

    took the Flyaway from LAX to union station and then the red line home. $12 total including the $2 i gave the busdriver. fast clean lovely.

    when i got home Jeanine had cleaned my room, made my bed, did my laundry and had a fish dinner waiting for me. thats love. what a sweet girl. someone get her a cheap room in a great pad even though i will miss how clean my house has been.

    there really is something about sleeping in your own bed.

    my cats missed me. they couldnt stop being sweet. they never sleep next to the tv but they did so they could keep an eye on me. how adorable.

    yesterday i stayed home and watched football from morning til night. God the Bears are terrible. this was the first time i actually bet that they would lose a game. and sure enough they lost big.

    before that i watched Vin Scullys last game as a Dodger announcer. he made them play him singing The Wind Beneath My Wings to the whole stadium. it preempted their celebration by about 5 minutes but the team hung in there. many fans cried. i may have cried a little watching them cry. the cats cried.

    slept with the window open and the ceiling fan on and my bedroom door shut. the cats gave me my privacy. it was great being in Chicago and just as great being home.

    today is national lazy day 

    lazy kidwhen andy warhol would talk to Lou Reed he’d ask, have you written any songs today?

    Lou would say something like “I wrote Heroin yesterday”.

    Andy would say, “that was yesterday. this is now 1:42pm, you should have written a song this morning and one at lunch already.”

    and Lou would take the needle out of his arm and say, fine, and write Andy’s Chest or Waiting on the Man.

    a week later theyd have a similar conversation and before Lou knew it the Velvet Underground had an entire album of songs ready to go.

    Andy was just as prolific and his critics could argue that he was using the printing press or interns to help him, he would say work doesnt mean you have to stretch a canvas, mix your paints, treat the canvas, have a glass of wine and meditate and then start painting to create work. all that was required to work is that you start working.

    i can go through major lazy periods where i dont do anything but lay in my bed and whisper sweet nothings to the cheerleaders and before i know it it’s Sunday afternoon and time to read the bible and do laundry. because i know how lazy i can get i often find myself with more than one job.

    in frisco i had three jobs because that place did not inspire me one bit to make art. or write. or rule. it was pretty but that was it. im glad im gone and i rarely go back. LA is my lady because this place has an underground railroad of hits rumbling under the surface.

    even though the mainstream media would have you believe that the only places of interest are either along the coast or from santa monica through downtown, theres massive amounts of energy in the valley, in the hood and East of LA.

    why dont they cover those areas?

    because theyre lazy.

    and if andy warhol was their boss he’d hit em with a flower.
