Went to the Mitchell Brothers strip club in San Francisco Thursday night for a special “Tourette’s Without Regrets” show.  First time I’d been to the famous strip club on O’Farrell  St. I didn’t know what to expect and my daughter Kathy is the intern for the Tourette’s people….I felt I should go just to keep her out of trouble.  There was a “No Camera” policy  at the show (sad face).  But I did get a few shots with my phone-camera on the way out the door. Anyway, it was a really cool experience.

More from the Folsom Street Fair.


Went to the Folsom Street Fair with Kathy. Does this count as quality time with kids?  Anyway it seems to be a S&M B&D sausage-fest. Why is it that the kind of people who long to take their clothes off in public tend to be monstrously ugly? Well there were a couple of cute chicks….but overall?


Another weird night at Tourettes without Regrets at the Oakland Metro. Most shows have very uneven acts with: bad rap-battles, sometimes good poetry slams, comedians, and a lot of burlesque type dancers who are mostly just exhibitionists looking for a stage.

It’s really fun because of the MC Jamie De Wolfe and his wacky supporting cast. He really keep things moving.


Went to FANIME in San Jose this Sat. Lots of cool costumes. Don’t know all the characters. If you can help I.D. them that would be great.


Went to “Tourettes Without Regrets” at the Metro in Oakland.  Fun show. Very weird (and I’ve seen a lot of weird shit!) the high-light was George Watsky.


Went to visit Clayton Bailey at his art gallery in Crockett. He makes cool metal robots and cermanic sculptures.  One of the ceramics looks likle the baby in the cult film Eraserhead (1977). It just so happens Charlotte Stewart was there. She was the mother of the “baby” in the film. I heard her say “my baby” and I started talking to her. (Turns out I was aquainted with her brother Stewart all these years.) I got a photo of her and me with the “Eraserhead baby.”


My son’s band, Back Door Bang, played at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco last night.

The DNA Lounge is a really great venue for up and coming bands. Great atmosphere.
