On 7/14/14, I conducted an interview with Boston by the way of Providence triumphant synth rock band, Magic Man, outside of Mississippi Studios in Portland, Oregon for my radio show, Prepsters in Polos, on KPSU.

Thanks so much to Andrew Schaffer for helping me film and edit this video!! Check out Bands in a Van on Facebook for more of his work.



Another  (weird) night at Tourette’s without Regrets and the Oakland Metro.  First Thursday of he month. Next show July 3.


The All Seeing Eye of the railroad box-car. It was done by someone called Solo. I’ll keep a eye out (get it?) for Solo’s “by-line.”

I was hiking in the regional park near my home when I ran across this young women sitting against a trail marker. So, I did what I always do, I said “Can I take your picture?”  She said “yes” and here it is. Well I didn’t check the camera settings and the frame was horribly over-exposed.  But I like the way it turned out. She was dressed in all black and white right down to the black lipstick. So the contrast in the frame works in some weird way.

Card reader on Telegraph Ave. in Berkeley. I was interested in his hands, rings, and the  kick ass “Yu-gi-oh” deck he had.


Flyer for 1975 Bukowski reading in San Francisco.  Alas, I was too young to get to the city on my own, and hadn’t heard of Bukowski yet. 
This is why I go to “Tourettes” or “Occupy Oakland” or the ”Folsom Street Fair” : If it turns out  to be culturally significant, then I was there.
I would’ve like to  go  to “Burning Man” back in the day— before it jumped the shark.

E.A. Poe once said that anyone who wrote a completely honest book would write a masterpiece.  Well, Bukowski is direct and honest. Street, ghetto, keepin it real. That’s what I like about him. He’s an American Original.

Lately, anything by Charles Bukowski, but is first novel Post Office is great. I like his poetry collections as well….and I don’t like very many modern poets.


Tourette’s Without Regrets at the Oakland Metro May 2014. Another interesting night of burlesque, poetry slams, and  stand-up acts.
