Musical meetup.



Thanks to Dave Haynie for taking this shot of last week's open mic at Gojjo Ethiopian restaurant with Jerry's Kids (Musical Achievers).

This is a bi-weekly event that brings together closet rockstars in good cheer. If anything, the level of dedication is going up, and the group gathers momentum with each rendezvous.

A convivial way to cap off the week.

Looking up from the rails.


Interesting to look up from below.

VW bus dreams...

This is the only known photograph from the old days, sometime last century, when there was a band mobile: a 1976, 2000cc fuel-injected, gold-painted VW bus with a platform conversion in the back for sleeping and loading equipment. It traveled from Portland, Oregon to Vancouver, B.C., and through the Rocky Mountains down to Durango, Colorado. Dreaming of hitting the road again someday with a similar, 4-wheeled companion...VW, why don't you come through with a new, electric version?

This thing...is just too small, looks like a soccer mom-mobile, and has nowhere near the personality of its older sibling. Hope VW does better than this when/if they finally bite the bullet.
