Eternal Life on a live album.
Allow me to toot my own horn here for a second. This concerns two live albums. The first being Local H’s Alive 05 and the second being Electric Six’s Absolute Pleasure. I made it on to both of these albums several times. But I would just like to point out to distinct times you can clearly hear me. The first song we will look at is Fritz’s Corner by Local H. There is a break in the song right after the audience sings “i fucked over everyone i know” Then you here the singer say”thats right” And if you listen close you can hear me scream “EVERYFUCKINONE” @1:42
The second song we will take a look at here is entitled The Green Building by Electric Six. You will hear the singer say “this is who we are and then we’ll move directly into the hits” Then you will hear four distinct screams all of them being me. Yours truly. DMT.

I got the time off request form for the Ramshackle Glory show. I wrote ” It would be greatly appreciated if I could have this one day off to visit with family from out of town.” Pat & company are from Tuscon AZ.
Speaking of out of town. A city chick and a country chick both commented on my saying howdy to them today. The cute city chick was like”hahaHowdy ohhh where are you from?” I was like “Montana” she was all “what are you doing out here?” I said ” The night life” It’s true though every town in Montana shuts down at 9 p. m. Then the hot country chick driving the horse trailer was like “howdy!That’s not Chicago. Oh, your from MT. I’m from Oklahoma 🙂 didn’t expect to hear you say that when I pulled up..” I took her money, gave her change, smiled, and said “thankyee”
I got the best news I heard all year today. Dick Valentine is playing the Double Door with Scott Lucas on September 3rd ! FUCK!I shit my pants again just typing that. Just kidding. Real talk. I need to have a new and better Camera by that time. Preferably the Cannon EOS 7D. My ralieghTsakers youtube channel are all videos shot with a lil kodak video camera. Said channel has a playlist called http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL13FD45DFC6D752F4 Dick Lucas. Those are some great performances. Just sayin…Scott Valentine & Dick Lucas together at last. I just shit a cat. (Meow meow meow.)Awww. How cute. Lets call it Sahhhn She Sahhhhn. Seriously though when I get it together. I’m getting a kitten and naming it SahhhnSheSahhhn.
The Ronald McDonald lobby is about to close in an hour.1 a. m. Then its off to Algonquin for another night in the parking rot. Falling asleep to another “WTF” Marc Maron podcast. It really cools off so much in the ungodly hours of the night. Then when the sun shines on the car for a few hours my ride turns into a sweat box. I have a good routine going on though as far as bathing and laundry is concerned though thanks to my brother. So I don’t have the look of a homeless person at all in case your wondering. I obey the rules of the road.This picture is plastered all over the highway authority plazas and headquarters bathrooms.
Ask yourself. Does this man look homeless?

So after work I went and pulled the last nine bucks from working at meijer off the pay card. I get a check from the tollway in three days. It will be big. Big to me anyway. I got happy after work when I took advice from my best friend Josh. I went to this huge grocery store called Woodman’s right next to Randall Oaks disc golf course and got a cool mint chocolate chip cliff bar. It was awesome. Then I frolfed thirteen holes. & Had a good time. It was super nice out. Here at mcdonnellzz again my spirits were uplifted some more when I got a confirmation on the Ramshackle Glory Chicago Date. It said Thursday July 18th Chicago IL @ Swerp Mansion. So immediately I was thinking where is this SWERP MANSION? And what is that street address? But all it said was (“ask a punk”) . CUTE.

So my sanity continues to be tested. I have a little samsung straight talk phone from Wal-mart right. It has youtube and facebook. Every night when I bed down in the meijer parking lot I fall asleep to a playlist. Like Home Movies or Terence McKenna. This was working out until yesterday when I called customer service and was informed my 3G has been suspended due to abnormally high usage. So now what? Shut the fuck up and go to sleep I guess. My brother gave me some reading material. Maybe I will give that a try. Pamphlets about Jesus and God and all that fun stuff. My brother prays for me because he believes I am going to hell for not proclaiming Jesus Christ as my lord and savior. Sorry to go all Halloween fingers again “but if I can’t understand what you say, what makes you think God will when you pray” King James version. The exact word of God. What do you think? Bill Hicks said If it was the exact word of GOD it would be a lot easier to understand…”god has a way with words” But there I go putting the word of man ahead of the word of god again. Enough with the heavy shit.
Man to be really honest. I’m just sitting in this same Mickeydeez chilling here after an 8 hour shift killing time waiting for the sun to go down. I like working nights cause it’s easier to sleep in a car on a summer night as opposed to a sunny summer day. Even when I get this first pay check I will just have a little more than a few hundred dollars. I hate the idea of renting a room. I hate living with people. I want my own fucking place. Privacy man. Leave me the fuck alone. Ya know. I do my own thing. I go to work. This is how I feel about it….
Anyway. I dream in my car. I remember. talking to my mom last night. She talked about the other side. She said she couldn’t see me but she is with me. It’s like that Halloween Fingers line. “Life is better in my dreams cause in there you and me we’re a team.” In my sleep the married men or some of em at least opened up for Dick Valentine. I got along with the man from Ireland who was waiting for the e6 lead singer to play. Then all these local h fans crowded around mosh pit style. I pulled a vanilla sky and made them all sit at their table&chairs. Even the married men had to play from a candle lit table. Then I remember being on this huge balcony patio in the city connected to the same club.Waiting for the man. Being outside making everyone laugh about the fat Chinese guy who jumped from the second floor of the adjacent building. Something about his guts coming out his backside. Last night during sleep UPS rehired me and a cab company gave me a job in the city. But the cab company was a front for all the areas gangs to transport hard drugs. Samuel L. Jackson’s daughter went where she wasn’t supposed to go in this drug warehouse. The meth heads chopped off her head and she was still talking to her dad. Her father was in disbelief and trying to get her to stand up and leave. She tried but it just was really crazy to see her try. Oh yeah and they sprayed me with a meth fire hose and I somehow survived. When you remember your dreams as frequently as I do, you have to take the good with the bad.
Do me a favor. Check out the real version of autonomia. Listen to it. It rocks. Go here. And be cool.

The dream I had last night while sleeping in my car in the Meijer of Elgin parking lot was pretty awesome. A spaceship that looked like the shuttle Columbia but tricked out with lights and way bigger landed on my dads roof. Before it landed in the middle of the night I saw the moon do a full cycle in the sky like a time lapse as it changed all the colors of the rainbow then I seen points of light come from outer space into my Dad’s yard. It felt like the space people were coming down to my world and making me feel high. I got scared when the points of light started functioning. A half girl made of lights from space started swirling around in front of me. I ran inside my Dads house and woke him up. Yelling at him to look out the window. He saw it too. When the ship landed on the roof my cousin Mark looked dumbfounded and his only reaction was to cook breakfast for the aliens.
When you drive on the Illinois Tollway you have to pay massive amounts of money. If you drive a vehicle with more than two axles you pay more and more. Class one is the most common. Cars and motorcycles are class 1. Class five vehicles are like semi trucks and shit like that.
I am currently homeless. Class 1 homeless is having a car . Class 2 is not having a car.
So right now I blog to you from a Starbucks. free refills here. I did not know that. Now I’m tweaked and Zeke’d burning CD’s, charging my phone and my dell. Thank you Star fucks. If it doesn’t rain I can disc golf until the sun goes down. Everyone at my work thinks I am traveling from Downers Grove to Elgin. But really I’m camping out around the area. I was living in Plainfield working at the Meijer there overnights. But the girl I was living with was unstable. Don’t drink and take methadone everyday. It can’t be good for you. Now who does your dishes?
Anyway the Tollway hired me. Yay. I’m sober. Yay. gay gay gay. Did you ever see that movie on netflix where the guy from the matrix and Bill&Ted’s bogus journey works in the toll booth? When cars pull up I turn down my ipod plugged into those loud computer speakers. Then I always say ” Howdy”. Then the customer pays. And I say “Thank yee”. Simple. The whole transaction takes less than eleven seconds. Over and over again. Howdy. Thank yee. Howdy. Thank yee.
It looks like its gonna rain. I want to film the married men at the hideout. I want to film Ramshackle glory when they come to Chicago. I want a better camera. And a place to live. “Hey guys! Big gulps huh! Welp… see ya later! Hey Harry I got you some beef jerrk….Some people just weren’t cut out for life on the road”.
“If you don’t pay no tolls then we don’t get no rolls”
Some people that drive on the tollway are angry and pissed off. So one day I will have portraits of John little in all his forms placed in strategic locations for my protection.
Kevin Costner stylee.
Walt Disney style.
Dudes I cannot stop listening to Halloween Fingers. Dick Valentine funkin rules. There is another cat I wanna film real bad. The most actually.Whatever.
