    i wanna say thats not joey ramone 

    but that equipment looks like the real thing.

    those are like four Marshall headers

    but who’s that on guitar?

    i ask because Joey’s neck looks suspicious

    wasnt he always a twig?

    even the hair looks like a wig.

    was listening to end of the century for a while and now im on the clash sandinsta because its my least favorite class record

    three albums of experimentation if you ask me

    aint nothing wrong with trying things out

    but

    tonight i got an uber select call from a little mexican guy named juan

    we talked about tacos when i saw we werent going very far away

    i said ive been to england ive been to france but they aint got tacos. he told me i need to go to mexico city. i say so thats where the real deal is? he goes, no, you gotta go to the towns around it, especially in the south.

    im like do they have chips there and good salsa? he goes yeah. i say whats your thing right now?

    he goes i really like a good quesadea.

    he’s all, youre not spelling it right.

    i go, its not spelled queseda?

    he laughs and says, its not spelled that either.

    we were getting close to his house. huge craftsman right near pico and western. pretty much the house i wanna buy for zulekia and marry her and raise her kids at.

    dropped him off and he paused, dug into his pants

    now believe me when i tell you he looks exactly like a busboy and hes ordering mercedeses

    and tipping!

    gave me three bucks.

    and i was like muchas gracias amigo. and he was all later!

    dear tony, what should i do? 

    garden of tears

    Dear Tony,

    Long time reader, first time emailer.

    A friend of mine has photos of our mutual friend’s boyfriend cheating on her (follow?) I don’t want to tell her because it will be a mess and I don’t want to be involved. But I would want to know. Wouldn’t you?

    Between A Rock and a Hard Place

    dear rock,

    here are some sayings you should consider:

    1. no one likes a stool pigeon
    2. no one likes a tattletale
    3. those who know dont talk, and those who talk don’t know
    4. looks can be deceiving
    5. women always know
    6. thou shall not bear false witness against yr neighbor

    i’m sure you are a very good friend, but theres a reason even cops don’t interfere in domestic cases
    unless there is actual violence going down.

    id stay as far away from it as possible because you might think you’re defusing a bomb

    but you might actually get the red and the green wires crossed and everything blows up including you.

    id suggest chilling out because if even you know of the infidelity then bro’s probably being sloppy

    perhaps, psychologically, intentionally and wants to be caught

    and as the clash say, do you really wanna be a cop?

    choose other career opportunities and be a good friend when the time comes when she needs a shoulder to cry on.

    plus, those pics could have been photoshopped.

    today is still joe strummers birthday 

    this is one of my favorite gospel songs.

    “Sound of the Sinners”
    (Strummer/Jones/Simonon/Headon)
    from Sandinista!

    As the floods of God
    Wash away Sin City
    They say it was written
    In the page of the Lord

    But I was looking
    For that great jazz note
    That destroyed
    The walls of Jericho

    The winds of fear
    Whip away the sickness
    The message on the tablets
    Was Valium

    The planets form
    That golden cross, Lord
    I’ll see You on
    The holy crossroads

    After all this time
    To believe in Jesus
    After all these drugs
    I thought I was Him

    After all my lying and crying
    And the suffering
    I ain’t good enough
    I ain’t clean enough
    To be Him, no, no

    The tribal wars
    Are burning up the homeland
    The fuel of evil
    Is raining from the sky

    The sea of lava
    Flowing down the mountain
    The time will sleep
    Us sinners by, by, by

    After all these years
    To believe in Jesus
    After all these drugs
    I thought I was Him

    After all my lying and crying
    And the suffering
    I ain’t good enough
    I ain’t clean enough
    To be Him, no, no

    Take one now
    Go, [Incomprehensible] go
    To Las Vegas
    [Incomprehensible]

    Give me success
    [Incomprehensible]
    To roll
    Holy rollers roll

    After all this time
    To believe in Jesus
    After all these drugs
    I thought I was Him

    After all my lying and crying
    And the suffering
    I ain’t good enough
    I ain’t clean enough
    To be Him, no, no

    After all those years
    To believe in Jesus
    After all those drugs
    I thought I was Him

    After all my lying and crying
    And the suffering
    I ain’t good enough
    And I ain’t clean enough
    To be Him, take one now
    Holy rollers roll

    After all this time
    To believe in Jesus
    After all those drugs
    I thought I was Him
