Added some new links to the side bar over there, added some work to our roster. Everything seems to be going as the (fill in the blank of your favorite deity or science) Universe has it planned. Or not planned. Not much to say, except I mean to write more in this on a regular basis. SXSW is coming up(March!), Acro-cats tour is coming up(April!), and the warmth that Texas starts to feel every time about this year is upon us. I think I am going to go out and work in the garden. But first, this – one of my favorite movies: One of the best movies ever made! Holy Mountain, by Alejandro Jodorowsky. Enjoy.
Here is the tentative tour schedule for the Acro-cats. If you see us in or near your city, feel free to contact me and we can figure out where the little darlings should play:
April/May – North Carolina/Virginia/Maryland
July – Pennsylvania and New York
August – Massachusetts and Rhode Island
October – Missouri and Texas
Januray – New Mexico and Arizona
February – Southern California
March – Northern California
April – Oregon and Washington
May – Cananda (Vancouver area)
July – Colorado
Who are the Acro-cats you ask? Well, if you dont already know, here is a video that explains it pretty well:
I had a dream about answering a craigslist ad to purchase a Television. I was on a one speed bike traversing through dangerous traffic in a nice neighborhood to get there, and as I approached the apartment, which was all-of-a-sudden in a ghetto, I felt more and more I was walking into a porno shoot. My gut progressively felt hard and my head felt like it was spinning. I raced through the external hallways to the complex looking at the numbers on the doors. When I finally found the door I was received by a very pretty albeit super skinny young African American lady with huge lips and dirty casual clothing, hair pulled back in a ponytail and short bangs to the right side. At first she just stared at me in surprise, looking at me like I wasn’t at all what she expected to look like. She scolded me softly for wearing too much clothing and for being late, and proceeded to try to get me to come into their home. I peeked inside – there was a loud TV playing the news, and kids screaming, and various other distractions, and as I turned and ran away I reailized I had thrown away the shopping cart and bike I had used to travel there, and thought to myself “I have no way of escape but up.” Now I remembered in other dreams that I could fly, and so heading to the tops of the trees was the answer, but I was having trouble getting up into the air while I swam (I swim through the air like I am swimming through water when I fly) That they just barely grabbed me by the legs and that is when I woke up. I have no idea if I got caught, or if I made it to the tops of the willowy trees ahead of me. I did wake up with Annie at my feet, kind of waiting for me to wake up. Awkward feelings.
So this was posted on the Portland Mercury’s site: http://blogtown.portlandmercury.com/BlogtownPDX/archives/2012/07/30/the-amazing-acro-cats-come-to-portland It only makes me more and more excited that we are pretty close to the Oregon border as I am the front seat passenger and “navigator” to Ian. We had to stop by Meowbucks and grab some venti kitties before we really got on our way. The road we got on was twisty and turny with the danger of rocks falling all around us or the RV careening over a cliff. We had to take it so slow we had a line of cars after us that weren’t so understanding about our fragile cargo. Regardless, shortly after our start we were settled in and so were the kitties we ordered. The weather is nice, and I completely under packed for the chilly nights, but Its beautiful and the company can at least a foot and an arm warm.
