message to the world: * DON'T BE OBVIOUS. keep it on the lay-low.
* DO NOT USE THE SLANG OF ANOTHER CULTURE. ie americans do not say "shite" or "shag" and english do not say "y'all". the only word that should cross over is "reckon". i reckon if my great-grandmother can say reckon, so can damon albarn.
prized possessions: photo albums. plunger. dave dee, dozy, beaky, mick and tich's "loos of england" 7".  talking laa-laa doll. sloan promo video.
most slammable slampieces: andrew scott from sloan; gruff rhys from super furry animals; alex james from blur; early keith richards; jon spencer and judah bauer both in a great big blues explosion sandwich, and most importantly, john taylor from duran duran, who no man could ever expect to stand up to in my book.
things that make me happy: neil diamond's voice (as smooth as buttered rum); jangly indie pop; pants/jeans that are long enough for me (i'm tall); cooking; last-minute spontaneous road trips; scotland; a good meal at waffle house complete with country ham, hash browns - smothered and covered, and cheese grits; charismatic keyboard players that take their cue from billy preston; sesame street; cute little indie boys with cute trousers and cute haircuts; sloan videos; the now-defunct boar's head in oklahoma city (RIP); a liberal use of the color orange; amanda's cher impression; the smell of lavender; t-rex; cute shoes; little kids; slurpees; mama's family; the small faces; having my own house; elvis costello's ankles; doris day/rock hudson movies
side projects the plungers, vicious itches, spinal chord regeneration
