sunday 17 march 19, saint patrick's day. i opted to go to brattle theater, use my membership and catch the Thomas Crown Affair! splendid movie, shots of Dirty old Boston (website) were superb, Beacon Hill looks the same. Because of Michel leGrande salute, let's notice "windmills of your mind" in the movie. and why am I in mad Painter? answer from wikipedia, re "windmills of mind' ("twin cities of the...."?) covered by "Vanilla Fudge on their album Rock and Roll (1969); b-side of single release "Lord in the Country". I am facebook friends with all four Vanilla Fudge for Mad Painter to do long drawn out covers like the Tetragammen" a label deep purple was on in '68 or so.

"monday 18 march 19. WMFO, like 0600 or some ungodly hour, drinking coffee "In my room" in my scifi marathon mug; I THINK it was Robin lane's "when things go wrong",0600, coffee, tribute to Asa Brebner, then a bunch of local power pop like muck and the mires etc BUT liking something new that sounds old was Brad Marino and a song about a gurlfriend like a "broken record" and it even has the needle stuck and surface noise! Need to investigate this dude!"

dick dale died saturday 16 march and andre williams died saint patricks day. quick remembrance on both: I had surfin USA beach boys (my cuzzins!) album and age 15, 1971 Carl Wilson was one of my favourite guitarists but facebook friend Al Jardine even admitted they loved Dick Dale, so my favouite instrumentals on said Wilson brothers ALBUM was "miserlou" and "let's go trippin" (being 1971, I thought it was about Lucy in the sky with diamonds!). after a 2002 (?) AA meeting i went to Middle eEast with a deceased "Scorpio Queen" and who was waitin' in line but Robert Plant! So now I have lived coz I can say ole Percy (in town for gig) went to see Dick Dale. Surf in peace, bro "aint that bitchen enuff"! as for Andre Williams, O. Rex interviewed Cub Koda in New netherlands and at "0300 or nearer" he demonstrated to me Andre Williams singing "Jailbait"; the next month I rang up Hound Dog Taylor and two years later STOLE FROM LIL RICHARD about a gurl name Janet! The Gruberger Brothers,Max Koda's son (25% of a minion) and Andre Williams now performing "Jailbait"!
