...and they lived happily ever after. Smith & Lady: poets, artists, photographers & adventurers.
Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )

Satchel Page sez “don’t look back… something might be gaining.”

i look back at these past 8 months, see 9 items of press.

i’ve discovered how to get publicity – die, or marry a young chick and leave town.  if i’d have known it was this easy, i’d have left long ago.  in fact, i’m thinking of coming back and leaving town over & over again – i’ll become The Man Who Wouldn’t Leave.

One Response to “licking myself”

    my email to michael heaton, responding to his plain dealer column mentioning us:

    love your p.d. column today, mr minister of culture.

    it’s hard for me to be a hero to “fools, frauds and charlatans…” but i try and do my best… duty calls, you know. even the f, f & c need their heros. at least i have a vast backlog of experience being fool, fraud and charlatan… among many other mostly undesirable things. but – i betcha i’m having a lot more fun day to day than Michelle Marder Kamhi & Louis Torres … i see more walking along a city street than they do in famous museums. and, you should read my blog on the famous art in the london tate museum. tho i suspect they’d agree with a lot of what i say.

    my advice is call them back, tell them you are making fun of me – tell them i’m a fool doing foolish things … then give me 10% of your million dollar award to soothe my hurt feelings.
