Alice’s Restaurant Massacree
I remember my Dad playing us this record when we were teenagers and thinking “what the fuck is this nonsense?”, then my uncle showing us the video is Arlo playing Woodstock while clearly stoned out of his mind and stopping to make sure everyone sings along to walking down a line so cos “you gotta sing loud if you wanna stop war and stuff”.
I actually had the privilege to see Arlo play at the Norwood Town Hall in Adelaide a few years later. He played Alice’s Restaurant but he told a story about teaching his daughter to play it, and how she made her own version up, and then explained in song how he doesn’t like playing it according to the album so he just makes up a new story each time. He’s a weird dude, but I’m alright with that.
I still haven’t seen the movie yet, but that’s just gone on my “to-do” list.

Adelaide, South Australia, has just experienced it’s hottest night and morning in November 2013. It was 29C at 10:30pm last night. Right now its hovering around 33C.
I miss wet and windy winter so much.
I bought a Faggin ( Columbus SLX) off of Gumtree for $100 with Suntour Superbe RD and Cinelli handlebars. I was going to make a Brifter project out of it but ended up selling it all for a little more than I paid for it out of sheer laziness. Much regret.
SLX is crazy light, like Alu light!
when you’re buying something and the cashier gives you change and people are waiting in line behind you and slowly moving forward and you’re trying to cram your change in your wallet and get out of the way as fast as you can that shit is horrifying and traumatic
Oh god yes. This is why I use “pay-wave” or whatever its called 99.99% of the time — now I don’t even have to worry about messing up my PIN.
When I’m rich I’m going to just drop my change on the ground and walk away.
Did this Moby Dick woodcut looking tattoo on my good friend Misha.
If I was the kind of person to get a tattoo then I would get this tattoo, or something similar to it moreso. I’ve read Moby Dick more times than I can remember and woodcuts of it are just beautiful.
restroom air dryers are a great way to warm your hands before wiping them on your jeans
My friend once got kicked out of a crumby pool-hall we used to frequent because someone spilled a beer on her jeans so she went to the toilet, took her pants off, and dried them under the hand-drier.
