The Kills at Electric Lady Studios, 15 February 2017

Nashville's and L.A.'s best, via Florida (!)
G-d knows I've wanted, no I've needed to write about this experience. Mind altering, high octane fun. It's been too long a time since I've rock and rolled like Valentine's Day evening. With The Kills. Close up. You know the story: this was invite only - with Jamie and Alison celebrating their fifteen years (to the day) they played out for the first time. The Kills performed a mitzvah, and to me their performance felt like one big gratitude party. Thank you for the brain altering, aural experience. [More on The Kills coming soon.]

If My Blog Could Be Retitled "A Blotter" … like PO-lice blotters … (WARNING of sorts: Explicit content)

I have to write about Alex Vause. Would my internal reaction to the character be any different if interpreted by someone other than Laura Prepon.

Is anyone else writing these names at this exact moment.

Why didn't I tell Patti that Luke pronounced her name 'Sniff' before he and I would dance to "Distant Fingers"?

Back to Alex. The sly crafter of heroin deals who knows how great she is at moving product. Who could sell you out as she ate you out and make you believe the lie as you came over and over and over her mouth.

Alex inspires my inner pornographer. Autobiographer of inner porn.
Instant hypnotist
Call her Dr. Vause,
why don't you
Lethal Alex Vause
Feral survivor under
the skin....

[Cont'd from prior …"Why didn't I tell Patti….]
Did not think of it at the time, which was not the right time anyway -
Christine's Memorial -
Falling Slowly; Paths That Cross; Somewhere Over the Rainbow
The chapel flooded with tears - for the loss of Christine; for empathy with Jay - we feel his tragic loss. Something Patti knows about: insurmountable loss. Robert, brother Todd, husband Fred. Later, Mother (and PSG info ambassador) Beverly.
How do we grieve? We keep walking. Hopefully, one foot forward following the one that came before it. Heart science.

Is this a blog? No. It is a blotter of thoughts. A bottle of mysterious elixirs. Skull and Xbones on the label optional.

Laura Kennedy's Birthday Was Last Week

Photograph c. 2008 Lisa Genet

Not waxing nostaglic but thinking of her, remembering that night at the tail end of October, sweltering downstairs at Cake Shop. It felt like everyone was on, pulling for LK.
