    The Modern Jazz Quartet is a staple of television and jazz radio around here, almost all my life.
    I would just like them a lot better if they did a cover of Maneater by Hall and Oates.

    Maybe all this typing about the nuclear organ for world peace has irradiated my brain.
    Here's some lyrics I might just have finished.
    Musicians around here say country music is ten years behind rock,
    more about the use of distorted guitars and stadium ambitions.
    The bars in Niagara Falls that have three-nighters are all country,
    even if scoping them out showed me more grundgey, alternative kind of rock,
    no clothes, no-one dancing or moving onstage, no hot lead guitarists.
    If you can imagine a light funk like C + C Music Factory,
    "Things that make you go Hmmm", "I'm gonna make you sweat",
    I just wrote a country song, so sing along.

    "I'm still a cowboy riding the range,
    even if the greener grass on the other side is making my life strange.
    I'm still getting cut, by the barbed wire crossing me,
    but that's okay there's still a sunset to fulfill my destiny.

    It's getting campy, beside this bliss is hippy raver,
    her hot knife campfire heating up every stone,
    when she's chewing to make my leather,
    I shake my eagle feather,

    and my head-dress gets dancing all night long.

    Those buffed up low land oily men,
    snort state lines to drive cattle calls,

    those lone star porn star pumpers,
    with their long gun prairie shooters,
    blast their way through the entire world.

    I came down from the high mountains,
    and when they drove in that last spike,
    I got off on that train, and when I found that room full of women,
    they all began to look the same.

    I need a new horizon, a light that's shining just for me,
    I have to ride and ride and ride and ride to reach it,
    to fulfill my sunset destiny."

    MMMMM, I have not heard the MJQ played on any NZ radio station for over ....ever.

    The other night in Welland square
    I saw a man that wasn't there
    He wasn't there again today
    I wish that man would go away

    Hey! I was getting into serious wordplay that really aren't good for lyrics,
    but you hit a nerve and moved my local self in a very haunting way.
    This actually works for what I was thinking about posting if you replied.

    The nuclear organ for peace and the black hole tone it generated produced local results.
    The deterioration of local topography has resulted in a back in time reality,
    that has also exposed a retro mentality.

    "The leaven of love, moistened with sympathy, stirred with desire for your highest good,
    kneaded by the hand of providence, baked by the hand of spiritual supplication".

    "We may live without friends, we may live without books,
    But civilized man cannot live without cooks:
    He may live without books- What is knowledge but grieving?
    He may live without hope- What is hope but deceiving?
    He may live without love- What is passion but pining?
    But where is the man who can live without dining?

    This is a recent find, having lots of fun with it.
    It is a business printing, the left page being ads, the right the recipes.
    So many local businessmen see the ads of their fathers,
    and women have cried, seeing Country Fair prize winning recipes,
    of their mothers or family.

    Please notice the name Fonthill, totally appropriate here.
    There's a font for us, a keyboard there for us,
    we can post 'til our tendons pull, and read until our eyeballs hurt.
    There's a font for us, with bills hanging over us,
    every day wireless is sinking in, brain-wasting diseases begin,
    and without a vote we let them in.

    Sorry Mr Watts but I is just a un edu cated colonial boy I can't do that fancy stuff

    The boy stood on the burning deck
    picking his nose like mad
    rolling it up in little balls
    and flicking it at his dad

    The boy stood on the burning deck
    His kneecaps turning brown
    It really was his own fault
    For pulling his trousers down.

    Some thirty inches from my nose
    The frontier of my Person goes,
    And all the untilled air between
    Is private pagus or demesne.
    Stranger, unless with bedroom eyes
    I beckon you to fraternize,
    Beware of rudely crossing it:
    I have no gun, but I can spit.

    Wow! I see some pioneering wit to go with my antique cookbook,
    and no, that wasn't my usual attempt at rhyming time,
    just quoting sections from inside.

    Why is that book scan so huge?

    I was playing in a rock showband in Toronto when the Captain Highliner commercial came out,
    and there was some frontman dead air happening,
    so I went up to my mike and said in a child's voice like the commercial,
    "Captain Hindgrinder, Captain Hindgrinder, have you ever been to sea?"
    The keyboardist, from Nova Scotia, didn't miss a beat, saying
    "Aye, but have you ever swallowed seamen Billy?"
    We got lots of laughter and applause, but no-one tossed fish sticks onstage.

    The nuclear organ for world peace not only has sent a black hole tone through the earth to Welland,
    it's mutating time and space to erase proto-realities, with beneficial gap mentalities.

    I remember when I found out Jimi Hendrix had passed away.
    It was September, when the Fair was open, being there with friends.
    When I went home that night and turned the radio on, I heard about him.
    I would think it was the next year that I bought my Stratocaster and Marshall, with effects.
    But today, on Facebook, someone posted a receipt from Manny's,
    a New York music store where Jimi shopped, dated after my birthday in 1970.
    That means I owned my guitar and amp before Jimi left us.
    That's a freaky thought, changing my perception of myself and my guitar,
    also knowing I'm still using some of those parts in my present guitar.
    This nuclear glow makes me feel like I'm mind-melding with the late 60's.
    No... no... it's happening again... and again...N.A.S.A.  N.O.T.I.S.T. Scientists: a nuclear organ peace project.-1970-jpgN.A.S.A.  N.O.T.I.S.T. Scientists: a nuclear organ peace project.-peters-fan-jpgN.A.S.A.  N.O.T.I.S.T. Scientists: a nuclear organ peace project.-tuts-wood-jpg

    You know JHC, there's always been a quiet dignity to your writings.
    When you put up photos of your garden, I thought right away, bless you,
    bless you, for not always being about obvious wealth.
    And now you're letting us know you're the better half of the
    Pet Shop Boys. I just got their movie on VHS, almost afraid to watch it.
    I might like them too much, even if I know I can't come between them.

    I can't say who's better looking, me with my hair growing out for the first time,
    or you looking like a senior from an English university.
    I wish the photo showed my 50 watt Marshall head on the eight ten-inch speaker cabinet.
    At least you've got a beautiful vista and a bridge I'd love to bike-hike across.

    I thought my three-photo reply was going to be a thread-killer,
    but you bounced back the rebound.

    Oh John I aint never been to these fancy varsity places and your three-photo reply was fantastic not a thread-killer, put up more pics of your self.
    I is just a simple soul, you force me to show my earlier self embarrassed at being snapped we were supposed to hold still as it was a timed exposure but of course the drummer boy just couldn’t keep still, you know what drummers are like.

    The first thing I thought seeing these photos was,
    they just look so familiar. You could be in Toronto or Niagara-on-the Lake.
    And then I thought about some music that suits your mood here,
    mellowing out with a young jazz band, a sunny day, a gentle crowd.
    I have never been able to embed a video, but this say embed has been disabled by request.
    This is Miles Davis last recording, with one of my favorite song starts.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtw9hNbQGTE

    If I was you, with that beautiful parkland property around your house,
    I'd be thinking of having my own jazz festival, your own musical retreat.
    It doesn't have to be big, maybe a nice picnic with a deck-wood stage.

    I shouldn't have taken all the space putting up those lyrics,
    when that was just a first shot at them.
    Now I'm calling it "Missus Hippy Raver", and the first line is
    "I'm still a cowboy jamming la Grange",
    and instead of barbed wire crossing me, it's Lundy's fence.
    It's getting better.
    I'm building gigsters.ca as a new domain,
    wanting to be more offline with it than online.

    This Welland moment is brought to you by the only real snowstorm we've had,
    a deep layer of soft, white fluffy snow drifting all over previously frozen bare ground.
    Looking at it, I was thinking this is perfect for shoveling.
    Everything was closed downtown, so I grabbed a loose shovel and went door to door.

    At the end of the afternoon, I was walking down a street towards a really big house known for drugs.
    An old, full size pickup was ramming against the snow plow pile across the driveway,
    almost three feet high, trying to push it side to side.
    As he stopped to let me walk by, I went over and said I'll shovel it for two dollars.
    The obvious stoner behind the wheel said "Really?" and handed me a five dollar bill.
    Men and women were watching from behind the main picture window,
    and one of them came out with a shovel, saying he would help me, looking at his friend.
    It wasn't an awkward moment, or an Aukland moment, but there we were, the three of us.
    I said I'm going to fulfill my old man role and make you look like a young stud,
    and shovel half as fast and half as much, and stop to take a lot of breaks,
    even if I asked for a toonie and got a fiver out of him, getting paid already.
    The other shoveler was smiling, nodding along, and his friend just looked at me,
    a little disgusted.
    I said a lefty's gotta do what only a lefty can do, so I started singing some Jimi.
    Most pickups around here are cosmetic, huge tires, huge bumpers with chrome push-bars,
    but only four or five foot boxes.
    I said it's nice to see a pickup that can carry an eight foot sheet,
    with a motor and brakes you can fix yourself, and that got us all bopping along.

    C'mon JHC! You mean to tell me construction standards are different in New Zealand?
    There are ten foot sheets of plywood and drywall, but you don't see those very often,
    almost everything comes in eight foot by four foot sheets.
    And the boxes I'm talking about are pickup beds,
    four and five footers obviously being too short for eight foot sheets.

    It's still hard for me to believe they don't have Robertson screws in the disUnited States,
    you know, the square hole with the square screwdrivers.
    You can put a screw on a screwdriver and wave it around, making all construction easier.
    And that's the only type of screw that really works well with electric tools.
    Using plastic lumber, you can drive a screw beneath the surface, reverse and turn it back out.
    You can leave your screwdriver hanging off a screw, easy to see where you were when you come back.
    Now I'm wondering if Robertson is the right name. I basically only use those and don't call them by name.
    Deckwood screws come in green, blue, brown or gold, probably more colours now.

    I like working with wood.

    I thought foot boxes could be shoes and 8 foot sheets were queen size bed sheets I used to get those from 'The Sheet Shop'
    yeh we use plaster board in sheets and all sort of drives for screws I like a good screw with different drivers.

    The Nuclear Organ for World Peace created such a sustained black hole tone,
    it not only sucked all of Welland down, it expanded to Niagara Falls.
    This is a photo of me playing in a club in 1977 I've just been asked to play again.
    Being in the house is one thing, getting a house gig is another.

    Someone gave this to me and I asked Smoky to autograph it.
    Smoky is playing a 1958 Les Paul, carrying rhythm and bass.
    We played together full time for a year and a half without one rehearsal.
    He later sold this guitar to Slash, yes, the famous Slash,
    who said it was the most important guitar he owned.
    Smoky had the original case, receipt, booklet, strap and pick.
    My tones haven't changed, using the same pickups in my semi-solid-body,
    they've just evolved to include previously unavailable harmonics.

    Oh no! This black hole tone has generated a reciprocal online energy!
    I had to piece together what was left and become my own domain, www.gigsters.ca
