here I am in California at the home of Miss Kris Force (Amber Asylum) on the beach in Pacifica. After a long delay leaving Arizona last night (plane had mechanical problems), I finally got here around 1:30 a.m. Kris and I shared some wine and girlfriend talk until 3:20 a.m. I’m thrilled to be on the west coast. Tonight Neurosis and I rehearse for the concert 21 July at Great American Music Hall. Still configuring the approach regarding my own performance persona. Bill from Mastodon was cool and got some of their shirts to me before I left home. I will enjoy wearing them here. Mastodon are receiving serious attention from the metal world and are from Atlanta.

A hot shower and another cup of coffee beckon….
