Papal BULL!!!

Standard

Today is February 29th. Every 4 years ( what we call a leap year ) there is one extra day in February. In my case I get one extra day to move all my shit  and get the fuck out. Yes, I am being evicted from my haunted cottage. Where I will go? Who knows? I’m putting all my guitars and books and records in storage and getting the fuck out of dodge. Why am I being evicted you ask? Long story but the gist is the slumlord I rent from never made any repairs, never took care of the yard, treated the place like it was his private dump, moved his boat into the backyard, etc. etc. and I couldn’t take it anymore. So it wasn’t necessarily because the ancestral Tequesta Indian spirits that lived there were getting to me…( they were. )

So back to this whole leap year thing. One extra day every 4 years? What? You probably get the impression that the Gregorian calendar isn’t the most accurate way to tell time. It was a Papal bull, an edict from the Pope back in 1582. One day the Pope says, ok people today’s date is such and such ( to the consternation of calendar makers everywhere ) and they had no choice but to go along his bull. Of course that only affected those unfortunate souls that lived in Christendom A.D. ( move ) Everywhere else to this very day…it’s just a bunch of PAPAL BULL!

Keeping up with the Joneses

Standard

 I am writing this from the service plaza at Yeehaw Junction. I’m headed back south to Hollyweird and my haunted cottage ( more on that later. ) I had to go, not only do I have gigs on the beach this weekend, I’m out of weed!? So it’s been a hell of a week. Ostensibly, I was on my way to the rainbow gathering in Ocala Nat’l Forest but it was too damn c-c-cold. I would have froze my nuts off so I ended up taking a detour. I did learn that when you leave South Florida, people in other parts of the state are actually nice! First I’d like to thank the lovely ladies of Orlando for keeping me warm. Thank you FOR A REAL GOOD TIME!!! I’ll be back…

(  ;

and I also want to thank Jupiter for taking good care of me and getting me back on the road.

…LOVE YOU MAAAN!

Ok so here’s a true tale about a man named Jones…

enjoy,

Space Hippie

 Antoine Jones was a club owner in Washington D.C. that the cops suspected of being a cocaine trafficker. Without his knowledge, they attached a G.P.S. tracking device to his vehicle and while he was ultimately convicted and sentenced to life in prison, that conviction was later overturned by the Supreme Court this past January 23rd (U.S. vs. Jones ) who ruled that attaching the device constituted a warrantless search, which are restricted under the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

 here’s what Wikipedia has to say on warrantless searches and the Fourth Amendment:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourth_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution

The moral of the story?

Fush you mang!

We don’t need your stinking morals.

We got a CONSTITUTION!

ha ha

know your rights and don’t let the bastards get you down!

enjoy your weekend people…

p.s. I’m at Jakes on the Beach tonight 5 – 9pm and the Organic Brewery tomorrow 4 – 8pm.

South FL’s not NORML!

Standard

” FL NORML ” is having their 14th annual Medical Marijuana Benefit Concert this weekend. 14 years and still we are no closer to putting medical marijuana on the ballot, let alone passing it. While during that same time period 16 states ( Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington ) as well as District of Columbia passed medical marijuana into law.

see the U.S. map here:

Why is that you ask?

Well for one those states probably didn’t have their movement highjacked by a bunch of clowns, that made it all about themselves, and ran it into the ground. Yeah so they still have their benefit every year but I can’t tell you who it really benefits but themselves.

 

EXPOSURE!!!

Standard

Dear Faithful, I know you’re all hungry for some fresh blog but Daddy just don’t have the time no more, too busy playing on the beach with Crazy Bill, every night and every day, trying to make a buck. Season only lasts so long so I’m working my ass off and one day soon I just might be a big star here in Hollywood. That would be in Hollywood, FLORIDA not Hollywood, Cali-forn-i-a.

We’ve been playing a lot on Dania Beach too. That’s just north of Hollywood Beach where A1A ends. We play at Dania Beach Grill and this Friday Hollywood ( the one in Cali) is coming to town. They’re shooting a major motion picture called Exposure there starring former Lost Boy, Corey Feldman.Yes’m the COREY FELDMAN!!!

p.s. we’ll be playing at the Jakes on the Beach later that day from 5 til 8pm and Saturday at the Hollywood Organic Brewery on Saturday from 4 – 8pm.

hmmm…as I said, I would post some videos of us playing but Word Press wants to now charge me for a video upgrade ( I guess I can’t blame them, they’re trying to make buck too. ) So for now these pics will have to do…

my first guitar…

Standard

 

You never forget your first guitar, so here it is the unexpurgated tale of how I, SPACE HIPPIE STOLE MY FIRST GUITAR! yeah yeah ok so I know I already went over that in PUNK ROCK 101.

( see earlier blog entry titled that by said writer and all will be revealed! )

 

scan0001

Ok so now my old middle school teachers who are my Fakebook friends, have read my blog, and now they know for sure it was I who did the dastardly deed. THAT YES I stole one of the fucking guitars from the room where they were stored in OLD MILL MIDDLE SCHOOL. Not sure if it was NORTH or SOUTH ( that damn short term memory loss )

But hey man people were disrespecting them and carving AC/DC RULES in them and shit. I, on the otherhand liberated one them as Prometheus store fire from the gods and thus too became immortal. What happen was this…

One day by chance I walking down the hall by the room where all where all the guitars were kept and I looked around AND NO ONE WAS AROUND…so I ran in and stole one and ran out the side door into the woods. I cut school the rest of the day and got high in the woods, playing it.

THE REST IS HISTORY.

p.s. WATCH THIS ( sorry I’m too fucking broke to afford the goddamn video upgrade I used to be able to post videos for free!!! )

Rainbow Family Reunion!

Standard

 

Every year about this time there’s a Regional Rainbow Gathering in Ocala National Forest. That’s in North Florida just south of Gainesville. The official start is on Valentine’s Day ( February 14th ) but people are there now setting up seed camp. Rainbow Family of Living Light is a non organization without leaders that gathers together on public lands to pray for peace. Many believe they are the embodiement of the Native American Prohecy concerning the Warriors of the Rainbow.

” When the earth is ravaged and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, and who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. They will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow ” — Native American Prophecy
