POMO MOFO YO:

  1. Spoke to Caroline Davis for seven minutes this morning, thus delaying her workout; unclear the exact schedule for Thursday, Friday, Saturday in January in that someone else is in the room that weekend day; probably 7:30 Thursday, 8:30 Friday, maybe 9 p.m. Saturday. (Sunday the 30th a year older –I’m finishing 57, starting 58 year on 3 rock from sun — I have Kid and Laura – -new years resolution is to learn to spell “Leuschner” — Greaseland blues jam). She is bringing a piano player; there is a grand piano. MH says we should have bought the American not the Chinese version of Japanese piano — both pianos at the art center are better. I noted that the European lady who does classical shows, on the very day she bumped our Tom Harrell show – which became a piano show ironically Luis Perdomo — rents a Steinway. 
  2. Earthwise nine fairly firm bookings to close 2021, open 2022; nine bookings, 11 shows, 14 acts queued up for 29th year of countervailing culture initiative in the 650 how about Nine fairly firm bookings to close 2021 for Earthwise; 11 show, 14 acts queued, to ring in 29th year as 650 promoter. There’s a pun on firma meaning land in Spanish. 

3. Promoter/Manager/blogger/activist either way slightly relieved that the brouhaha with the provocatuer fake tory did not make the local rag. Bottom line: if someone tries to introduce themselves to you and you refuse to reply in kind, you, sir, are in the wrong wrong wrong. As I said, my name and address is a public record, so you can tell me if you have a problem with me. Steven Carter said Democracy starts with one person says “good morning” and the second person says “good morning” back. Danilo Perez, for a group of Redwood City charter middle schoolers got 20 kids to jam by starting with two of them. Say ‘hello’ — “Hello?” — say ‘hello’ back. “Hello”. The only quibble was when the rapper didn’t know he could say anything and instead said “will the real Slim Shady please stand up, please stand up”
