"saturday 6 May 2023 . BGN pre-Rumble staff meeting since
my stomach was rumblin' but i ALWAYS have tyme to shoppe at Cheapo
records! Dollar bins outside the store; do i buy both
one dollar Robin lane albums? HELL NO! Liberace and Eddie Fisher
"Big 10 inch records"! The Liberace is one year older
than me! "Be More Flamboyant"! (Liberace pic). ok, "take
a ride on the karma wheel, there's always room for one more"....As
the velvet Underground are supper music, instead of captain
easychord in walks Jim melanson of PopGun who
has NOT been in the BGN for a while...soon to be rectum-fied!
Me, him and captain discussing various music projects but "Oh
Jim" has a lot goin' on with Smitt E Smitty
and/or Rumble LOSER (winner to me!) Linda Bean.
I sez "hey! we played Lou reed songs with THE COUNT once
down Hull, ironic man you shold walk in". Lebanese food and
"venus in furs"..."shiny shiny, shiny bites of
kibby; challah bread child baked with The Dark"....captain
and Jim went to the Rumble and all captain got was this lousy
t-shirt (photo). I wasnt gonna stand at TT's ("Dead boston
club") on a bad leg for $25; 1980, post-USMC discharge I
saw EVERY night of the Rumble but that was a couple-three lifetimes
ago. 'are the good tymes really over for good"-merle haggard.
lastly, doing a reverse Willie Loco on "Mass. Ave.",
ran into some man ray folks and i got me some
di-rections: It's on Prospect street right across from tastee-Burger!
Gonna need some XXXL black clothes once i git done in there..."he
could eat his weight in groceries...man of the cloth, called him
Amos Moses"....Hey, Johny cash was wearin' black before ALL
these Goth arschlocks, so essen scheisse und tort! OR mange le
merde und mort!".....

"Sonntag 7 may 2023. Somerville Thee-ate-er steamboat
Bill 2 pm, The General 330
PM. Buster Keaton silent double feature with
live accompaniment. I kinda fell asleep during Steamboat Bill
but Gee Julie and i LOVED The general!
based on The great locomotive chase during the Civil war; a confederate
train gets captured, goes behind yankee lines, keaton is engineer
etc. What I enjoyed was the farms and the interiors since my grandmother's
yankee farm was STILL Civil War vintage even in 1964!
keaton was in a league with Chaplin etc. Somerville having MANY
double features of OLD films so check the Link, Wray and "Who
loves the sun" when you have "Celluoid heroes"?
(of course sitting von mein arsch equals "Cellulite Heroes"!)"......

"Sonntag 7 May 2023. open brickbottom studio
for alexandra rosenman; Gee Julie wore
her KENtucky derby duds! Free jazz was provided by Eric
Zinman of fablegraser on both keyboards and drums simultaneously.
Honkin' sax like John Keegan channeling MX-80 on Gizmos "Hey
Beat Mon" AND: Linda Sharrock! Did a bit of
research; she was hangin' out with Pharoah Sanders when Yoko Ono
was recording with Ornette Coleman; writings compare her to Yoko,
PLUS Diamanda galas, neneh Cherry and Alice Coltrane! records dating
back to '60s, CLASSIC, free jazz like the MC5 and Stooges and KH
air force dabble in. lastly, did some kinda Facebook search and
who's a fan? eddie Flowers of Crawlspace! NOW it
all fits in...good art/good people/ free jazzin' on a "Sunny
afternoon"!(not quite yet "Summertime" but a damn
nice day it was!)"......

Dienstag 9 may 2023. attack of the b-movies! $5
double feature (paid for with BGN birthday gift certificate!). 630
pm The Braniac. 8 pm. The
Robot Versus the Aztec Mummy. plus: short subjects,
trailers and more! major Tom handed out lil dinosaurs for to fight
and our host DID remember schlock around the clock at orson
welles and IS bringing Santa Claus conquers
the martians to Somerville Thee-ate-er. Los movies;
both bad '50s mexican horror; Eric Stumpo of Plan Nine sent me and
far be it from me to be "Argung with Ghosts"! Mexico City
1661, a De sade type baron burnt alive but makes good on threat
to return 300 years hence and invoke Tort und schadenfreud upon
descendants of those who judges him. Think of an evil barnabas Collins?
I liked the reincarnation/ direct descendant angle and for two dollars
and fiddy cent (oh wait! paid for by a cuzzin of law and order and
jim carrey and me Groton mass. John Nutting "the founder' kilt
13 march head impaled on stick, king phillips war, same century
as 1661 mexico city). As for The Robot versus the Aztec Mummy,
this is a Mystery science thee-ate-er film (I liked the mop) and
more reincarnation as a virgin is sacrified in Aztec tymes along
with warrior dude who reincarnates as mummy as a neo-Yma Sumac chants...I
remember doing guerilla drinkin' at the ole Orson welles schlock
fest so Psych-Out was TRULY a trip! Check that Somervile
Thee-ate-er schedule, primo OLDER films coming up,
like my Beach Boy cuzzins say All Summer Long!
