it is windy again today, and i'm sitting at the reception desk at the office. every few minutes, the door opens and shuts as a gust comes through. i hope this is happening all over the city today, a thousand ghosts of the industry rushing to and from appointments.

the french kicks are in town. their new drummer, hugh, was, as you can probably tell from the photo, in the recoys. they played a budget show last night at the UCLA food court, and play again tonight at the el rey. i might take photos.

it is cooler than usual here, and windy. the city is full of lightweights and lunatics.

the war should be over soon. the peace will take forever. babylon does not fall lightly.

how many neoconservatives does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

one highly mobile, gps-assisted crack team of 3 special engineers to change the bulb, 300,000 servicemen and women there to watch the rest of the lightbulbs in the house change themselves, and when the other bulbs don't change themselves, when the house burns down because the new bulb the first 3 put in started an electrical fire, it takes another 300,000 servicemen and women to clear out the wreckage of the house, and plant nice apple and cherry trees while buddies of the first 3 sell the oil that was under the house to the neighbors. it was an ugly house in the first place.

hunter s. thompson for espn:

"Indeed, we are truly the sqanderers of what was once the American Dream, and our own dreams, for that matter. In two disastrous years, this Waterhead son of Texas has taken this country from a prosperous nation at peace to a dead-broke nation at War, and that is a very long fall."
when i was growing up the president's chelicopter would fly over my family's house on the way from camp david to the white house.

it's the beginning of april and everything's broken.

there will definitely be a recoys reunion show and record release party in nyc when the record comes out. max and i plan to fly out for it and expense the plane tickets once the record company is big and rich and everything.

and some good news: Reuters is quoting 'senior defense department and administration officials' as being 'confident that saddam hussein was killed' in the first strikes of the war almost two weeks ago. hopefully resistance will melt away. thank god.
