Freak - The Real Thing

A full boat with the appearance of Patric from Florida for his triumphant return.  Andy continued with a week on his Telecaster which we will miss next week since he'll be in Atlanta seeing Larry Keel instead of playing with Deadstein.   Boy, you lend someone and banjo and they turn into a touring Keelhead.  Who would figure?

The Straw was a little late to start as I forgot that the PA wasn't working without me and I was on the phone provided some emergency tech-support to my brother.  Anyway,  I got that thing working and we were on our way.  I liked the Straw which transitioned nicely into a slinky Franklin's cut short by Larry.   Maybe next time before we play the Franklin's we should take viagra so we can keep it up.  It's two times in a row we petered out on that song and it's not a good trend.  I thought it wasn't really dragging until then end when the anchor was thrown overboard.  Actually thought the Franklin's had a subdued bouncy feeling for most of it as opposed to the usual overpowering of a simple beat. 

Day's Between was pretty good for a song that we don't really do and probably few of us really know.  You gotta give Larry credit for being able to sing that one and he pulls it off some how.  It had a nice extended spacey jam at the end which transitioned into a sloppily played Music Never Stopped.  Larry had a good first round of the lead but I think he caught Andy off-guard for the turnover so it took him a while to get going on that, but once he's going, watch out!

I think we had a few good song-to-song transitions this night which is pretty rare for us.  The only real bad transition was the Uncle-->River but the River eventually turned into a good rendition.  It hatched, as Andy said. 

The Lazy River Road was pretty good.  I really like that song, it's a beauty.  I probably like it the best of the new Dead songs.  Speaking of which, what ever happened to Corrina?  Has she been slighted.

The Maggie's Farm into the Cumberland was well transitioned.   Both those songs exhibited the appropriateness of the old Tele sound as a country twang filled the air.  Both those songs galloped nicely.  Patric had been requesting a Deep Elem Blues all night and we accommodated him by not only playing it, but by also letting him sing.  While Patric persistently apologized for it, he did a good job on the song.  Things began to fall apart quickly thereafter as Dave muttered Kevin's three least favorite words, "Good Night Irene."  We got through a portion of that song.  At this point, Larry was sitting, Dave and Kevin were playing guitar and I had the Modulus for a marginal Death Don't have no Mercy and a Led Zeppelin tune, Rock and Roll, which really rocked and rolled.  Scott had the drum thing and Andy provided the rest.  He did a good job on the Robert Plant part.  The song never floundered, which was no fluke.  You can tell by the eyes. 

It was a poor Deliziosa night. It came too late and too cold. Johnny pulled of an expert order.  If the food was good, Di-a-nyu.  The rice balls, you bet, were about as bad as they have ever been.  Apparently under-cooked and crusty, just like the pizza.  The Garlic knots were over-cooked but right on.  They were the highlight of the meal.  Even the salad was a bit rancid.  Veal parm was good, assortment of pasta dishes rounded out the meal.   For dessert we had a preponderance of toasted almonds supplemented by strawberry shortcakes and ices.  As a capper, Scotty had some sweets he was saving for us which was so nice of him that we were all choked up and dizzy.  It was pretty comical.   I guess it was one of those sweet and sour desserts which I was tasting and enjoying for my whole ride home.  I think I'm still tasting it as I write this colloquy.  Whoa!

Knicks climbed back into the eastern conference finals by tying Indianopolis at 2-2.  The exciting part is still to come.  Devils started their Stanley cup finals with a 7-3 win over Dallas and the Mets had a nice 10-5 win over LA.   Larry tells tales of today's music and youth with the despicable showing by Blink-182.  The weather was good although a bit cold for the end of May.

A fluke is actually a summer flounder, which like its cousin, the winter flounder, has both eyes on the same side of its head. Interestingly enough when these fish are fry (small, not battered) their eyes are positioned normally. At around eight weeks the left eye begins a migration to the other side of it's head as the body flattens out readying the fish for its' life on the bottom of the sea. The fluke is a more aggresive and larger fish, reaching 15lbs with a mouth full of teeth. The winter flounder rarely tops four pounds with a soft mouth designed for catching and eating small worms and mollusks. So in reality, you can tell by their mouths.

TheGind neglected to mention a couple of thingsÖThere was a tremendous, envelope-pushing, seriously groovy, jazz odyssey-of-a jam before the first song. It was a transcending experience for me, it was as if I was channeling. There was no conscious effort on my part (I heard that L.L.Brent). I liked it. Rabbi Elkins was conspicuously absent. I missed him. Hopefully he will be there next week to help fill the hole left by Trister and my heart. Freakboy put on an exposition, that until now had only been seen at www.Sissyboy.com. Iíve seen that kid do some freaky stuff, but I never thought Iíd see him fellate a calzone. I put butter on my Rice Ball, he puts a condom on his calzone --- and there is nothing wrong with that. If you think about it, Freakboy is a psychedelic Liberace. Donít worry Johnny, I love you no matter what. Iíll march side-by-side with you in the Gay Pride parade any day. Be the freakiest gay guy you can be.

I thank Kevin for remembering a few of the things I wanted to forget, especially that picture I have in my mind of Freakboy, Jism Long.

Poor Johnny.

He was just trying to enjoy his food; I was ecouraging him. What possesed him to go over the top we'll never know but he's our freakboy and I don't care what his sexual, I mean culinary, preference is.

It really was like watching a car wreck, though.

Long live the freak.

Good funny posts dudes!! Although - maybe Deadstein could play out and incorporate some of Johnny's food fellating into the set breaks for some serious shock value like seen in past Lalopalooza's - kinda like setting up a FreakBoypalooza!! Will he use meatloaf or butter sticks tonight or go with with the trusty calzone??? How bout the looks on the crowd during the second set opener!! Like - Johnny just shoves a Krispy Creme up his tush while the Gind starts playing the first scoppy notes to a rippin Shakedown!! Stern Rules and You dudes rule...

As much as I dread saying it, (and I dread it as much as Anita Bryant dreads serving Johnny Italian food), I am out this week. Tuesday is a go; sans Kevy. See 'ya next week. And for the sake of anyone who wants to buy office furniture, the week better go fast, mighty fast.

"I woke today"....with severe back spasms. So, even if I could hobble over to WWI, I wouldn't be able to set up my gear. I apologize for the last minute cancellation. See you next week.
