notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

Jimi Update

So, I was kind of wrong about the whole Tarantino thing; but I think it's still a good topic of conversation; who should play him? I always thought it would be Andre 3000, who was, till this weekend, my number one pick. Then I went to Brighton and heard what I thought to be a Hendrix cd being played over speakers mingling with the sea breeze.

I was wrong.

It was a live performance, and the Jimi "impersonator" could not have looked more like him if he had tried...he played like him, moved like him, sang like him...My assumption (I know, I've been trying to eliminate these from my life, but I'm human, I'm human) was that he was a stray lovechild or something...I excitedly snapped a few pictures with my phone, but the quality is not so great; i still think these grainy images show that the guy should be worthy of consideration.
He did play with his teeth, but in now way did i feel it contrived, it seemed natural, it looked right. He jammed, the music was intense yet his voice floated effortlessly over the chords and frantic drumming; and of course that swagger, he had that swagger.

Coming up: George Bush and Paul Newman, Separated at Birth?
