Crazy & the Brains - Saturday Night Live
I don’t wanna do anything that I don’t like
I just wanna be on Saturday Night Live
A speech was written for Richard Nixon in case Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were stranded on the moon during the Apollo 11 lunar landing.
it’s 8:30am and i’m still up
still hung up on today
if i stay up
there will be no tomorrow
(no more yesterdays)
just one day, eternal and wide
an ocean of moments that i’ve survived
enough to float or drown endlessly
enough to dump in a hundred seas
enough to crumble most submarines
i sometimes miss the atlantic
and reasons to sniff cocaine
and excuses to kill the pain
the guaranteed afternoon rain
staying up till 9:02am
waking up just past noon
starting it all over again
always starting too soon
one last day, eternal and wide
a canyon of seconds before i expire
someone tell me my similar blogs i wanna know
I finally converted the vhs tape of the J Church show I was at in 97 to a digital format. Enjoy!
The Clash helps some of their fans to sneak in before a concert.
this is how you do music right.
I love this so much. Like how stoked would you be if a band you loved helped you sneak into a big show of theirs?
I’ve heard this story before and love that they did this. Stop me if you heard this other one:
The Ramones were playing in England and before the show they were hanging out in the dressing room when someone tossed a stone at the window. They looked out to see some young punks who wanted to get into the show but didn’t have money for tickets. The Ramones reached down and pulled the guys up and got them in. Those young punks without tickets were to become The Clash.
Good to hear they kept it going.
I am going to Los Angeles to write a screenplay about lovers who murder each other. I am going to Los Angeles to see my own name on a screen, five feet long and luminous.
as the radioman says
it is 5 am
and the sun has charred
the other side of
the world and come
back to us
and painted the smoke
over our heads
an imperial violet
it is 5 am
and you are listening
to Los Angeles.
