I was peeing and I turned around and saw me on the wall and I said “hey dude. We are peeing right now.”
And then the me on the wall said to the me peeing “turn around, you’re sprinkling on the floor. Plus, let’s not let Janis Ian see our wiener.”

Is this a video game? I just took this pic and now I’m wondering if I live inside a video game and I’m just capturing images for the worker bees who are writing code. Electric probes are zapping me and interrupting my sleep patterns. Zombies are hiding behind buildings and I’m out of real estate for hiding. Must snap. More. Photos. Ugh ugh too late my cathode eye connectors are wonky. They’re not just wonky, they’re Willy Wonka-eee. I need a flea dip. Huh?
When I was born I came out of the womb with a barstool attached to my thighs. The doctors in Halifax Nova Scotia were amazed. The nuns of The Sisters of Charity at The Infirmary where I was born were stunned. They tried to hire a carpenter to saw off the barstool but the doctors thought it was too dangerous. My poor mother was feeling much better after having that barstool out of her womb and she told the experts to leave it. She said “I’ll just get him guitar lessons and he’ll always have a place to sit for his gigs.”
I eventually learned to walk and hop and the guitar became my best friend. Now I travel around the world like a circus weirdo and sing songs and spin yarns. I’ve spun so many yarns that I’ve been able to knit myself a career as a yarn spinner with barstool legs.
Steve Wozniak surprised me last night at my gig in Asbury Park New Jersey. I love him. He hires a town car and took the two hour trip from the upper west side and then I got to catch a ride back with him. He had the iPhone 6 and 6 plus and we chatted nonstop about everything under the sun from Ebola (he’s against it) to hacking (he’s one of the best) to music (he likes it when I tell long rambling stories and his favorite song is Dick’s Automotive).
Tonight I play NYC at Pianos. I go on at 7:45. 158 Ludlow Street
The road to the front desk is a long hike. Sometimes you have to just sit down and rest your tired limbs and hope that the carpet doesn’t fly away. Other times you order a pizza and just wait for the delivery and breathe in a slice and allow the sustenance to kick in to the energy center and convert it to fuel for the rest of the hike to the elevator.
Let’s do this tour stuff. Come find me somewhere!
Oct 15 Asbury Park New Jersey – The Saint
Oct 16- New York City – Pianos
Oct 17 -Easton Maryland- Stoltz Listening Room at the Avalon Theater
Oct 18 Ardmore (Phucking Philly yo!) Pennsylvania – Ardmore Music Hall
Oct 21 Vienna Virginia ( DC People!) -Jammin Java
Headed into NYC today to film a follow up segment with Ben Arthur for Acoustic Cafe and a song we wrote together at Folk Alliance. The sun is out. It’s a new day and I need to find some parking in that crazy city.
I spent the night at Lou Lou DeMarco and Loraine Fusco ‘s place. She made me a banana split. Thanks! I still feel full. It’s good to be around sweet friends!
And so it goes.
Do you guys think I could get in trouble if I made a video promoting the show in New Jersey and said Bruce was gonna be there? Even though I just mean a copy of one his his albums is gonna be there? Is this false advertising?
Also where should I eat food today in NYC? Any favorites? I want to eat a good meal in honor of Chef Larry.
The Saint Asbury Park
So it looks like I’m playing a show in Cambridge Massachusetts tonight. I think they talk real funny up there in Boston. I’m looking forward to playing Club Passim. I’ll be on stage having a blast while the baseball game is on. I’ll have to act like I’m pulling up something to read to the audience on my phone but I’ll actually be checking the score.
The cool thing about an 8pm show is that right when I’m finished I can probably watch the 8th and 9th inning and maybe even extra innings.
See ya tonight at Club Passim.
Here’s a video I made about the show.
