Please Read the Letter that I Wrote! - 1

Dear Kay, Yesterday, I awoke to the sound of Alison Krauss and Robert Plant singing “Please Read the Letter That I Wrote” on NPR, on account of they won the Grammy for Record of the Year. Record of the year! This peculiar collaboration has been the talk of Nashville ever since Robert Plant came to town and rented a house to do this project. Such a head-bonking combo! Hearing his superfamous Led Zeppelin voice paired up with...

I Left My Hair in New York City - 1

Dear Kay, Somewhere between New York and Nashville is our hair. I don’t really know why it isn’t in the Suitcase of Luv–that’s where I saw it last–but it really put the cramp on my Halloween efforts this year. I was ready to wear both your beehive AND my locks of unholy love, but I don’t know where any of it is. Do you think some airport security person made off with it? I had to fall back on my most...

Dear Kay, Most Saturday mornings, this is where you’ll find me. This is the Grownup Holding Area of the Sixth Avenue Skatepark. I figure that, having spent about fifty Saturdays in this place, I am good and ready for the apocalypse. Don’t you think the apocalypse will have busted-out sofas?

Glories Stream from Heaven Afar - 1

Dear Kay, It’s Christmas Eve here, a brilliant bright morning, and I am so filled with nostalgia that you would just PYUKE to be having coffee with me this morning. I break out into “The First Noel” with NO NOTICE. I’ve already sneaked an early reading of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. At the rate I’m going, I may bring out the figgy pudding. RUN AWAY! The Barber Shop Closes I can tell you when this nostalgic mood...
