Day 236 - Jan 14 - St. Louis Day Off

Safe and sound we are. Our first show in Dallas went on without a hitch and it looks like everything is running smooth after our longest break yet. Gnarls Barkley is our new support act and some cool familiar faces on the tour. Normally I would have some photos to show you but guess what. You will never believe this but it appears that somehow my camera has made a break for it and escaped. Ya know, I spaced on attaching it to the my new laminate and it appears I have not fully re-acclimated to tour mode yet as battling the scattering of personal items escaping is still pretty much a full time job. Give me a few days and a few more donations to the world of elsewhere and I will get my deal dialed in. In the mean time, well, I guess I need to go camera shopping. Arrrgh! I had some good pics on there too and the best one was three little girls maybe 6 to 8 years old that I gave pink flamingo glasses to and a case to stand on. So cute! Oh well, at least I don't have to be worried about being overly attached to material things. Plus, that little camera served me well and I did have a fun and wonderful night so a silly camera is just a small price to pay for adventures I love to remember, in the big picture of it all.

In the mean time, since I am picture less, I guess I will share another blast from the past. This the following is a calendar that a guy named Joe Cole made. Joe friend of Henry Rollins that Rat Sound hired to tour as a sound tech on the final Black Flag tour. Joe ended up being murdered in a robbery at the house that Joe and Henry shared in Venice. Joe went to down town LA and took pictures of homeless people, printed the calendar and then gave them out in exchange for donations which he then donated a portion of to a homeless shelter in LA. Whether you feel it shocking, altruistic or creative, I thought it unique and interesting enough to share and share a memory of someone no longer hanging out.

The dedicated to not losing the next camera,
