Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Many bands, especially the bigger sort, avoid performing in Arizona. They will drive all the way from Austin to Los Angeles on I-10, sometimes overnighting here, without bothering to play. And when they do perform here, it's often an either-or, with either Phoenix or Tucson getting left out. Surprisingly, though, The Fall will be playing both locations on their American tour. So that means I will get to see Mark E. Smith on my birthday!

Careful, he's fickle ... or crazy ... or crazy like like a fox ...

Last time the Fall came through, they didn't actually come through. They were scheduled to play at Plush, but when Jessica and I showed up at the door, we were informed by the bouncer that Mark E. Smith "got fed up and flew back to England." Fed up with what, we may never know. It could have been touring conditions, or Plush's inconsistent-at-best sound, or something more personal. Maybe my granny lost her bongos. I kind of respect him for taking his rock star diva behavior to an extreme, though. Instead of refusing to play, or walking offstage, he LEFT THE FUCKING CONTINENT.

I remember you're describing that, sittinginaroom. Fingers crossed, but the worst that will happen is that I get to celebrate my birthday at Congress. Nice work on the music, BTW. I meant to write back, but am so busy.

Ever thought of suing for cleaner air?

Yes, actually. But it seems like too much effort. I'd rather just go to my early grave and be done with it.

This is great news! I will see you there and buy you a drink.

Yay! We need to get together more. I haven't been going out much. But we could have coffee or something too.

Yes, it's been too long. Coffee sounds good, too. Let's figure something out.
