Year of the Cat

I was born Year of The Cat and graduated Gunn in 1982, which means I am not 57, as Yoshi Kato states in his story.

I thought the story was fine, other than I think there should be separate stories about Parlour Game, Akira Tana and Earthwise. It’s kind of a jumble.

I got my hair cut — by Annice of Juut — directly before the shoot. Sam was professional but I thought a little casual. This shot and most of the time together it seemed like he just got me yammering and clicked (or filmed?) as he saw fit.

I thought the health warning at the end was gratuitous and unfair. Yet, I did joke to Yoshi that maybe Bill Johnson would kill the story for health reasons.

I just added a show for October and have a few more offers out there for May, June, July, and the fall. I’m tempted to bring Mother Hips back for another brace of shows for March, 2021.

Mainly I am saving my energy where I can for my big March and April, and checking the newscasts too frequenty perhaps for updates on public health.

I think music is healing. Attending this type of commnity-oriented event will help us get thru these times. Original title of draft: Portrait of the promoter as a year older than he really is, by Sam and Yoshi in the Weekly
