I am back in the U.S. in California and did not return to San Francisco. I do occasionally do some work in the city and visit but I live in the suburbs now. I live across the street from a church and a school and next to those places are an old folks home a social security office oh and a mountain mikes pizza. I have no intention of bothering anybody on wwp facebook page or bothering anybody with the details of my life for anybody that cares I am still alive.

Be here now......peace

Good to hear from you, Dave.

What's the badge all about, and what happened to your shirt?

I had to look on two different old computers, but I finally found my password for my live urinal account again.

It's good to hear that you're alive and kicking, Dave. I know you don't like facebook, but it would be cool to see you there someday.

what would I talk about

I don't have anything going on in my life that even comes close to being "punk" I have a house payments and meditate. Before I came back to the U.S. I went to Maui and while I was on the beach I met this old hippie named Ram Das who pretty much changed my life, now that I've been home I don't drink or smoke and I practice martial arts, it makes for a clean life but other then what I just said its very boring.

I'm Pretty Boring Too

Among the last few things I've written about on Facebook were stories about pulling weeds in my garden, bitching about people on cell phones and my mom's problems with moths at her condo; I don't have that much to talk about these days either.

About a month ago, I did attend a "punk" concert of sorts at the Observatory in Santa Ana. My wife and I showed up for the "Indigo Festival," but we only stayed long enough to see Mike Watt, a couple of local bands whose names I can't remember, and also Deerhoof (sort of a jazz/punk band from San Francisco.) This isn't exactly punk, but we also went to see an art show at a gallery down in Newport Beach and got to meet up with my old college room mate, Fred Tomaselli (who had a bunch of paintings on exhibit at the show.)

I'm still burning flowers, but I've cut way back on beer lately. I'm pushing 60 now, so I think it's finally time for me to start acting my age.

Re: I'm Pretty Boring Too

Tell me about it, I'm turning 50 in 4 months and I've made major changes myself, some where my own doing so its easy to deal with. My Doctor told me I have to lay off sweets or eat them like a normal person. Drinking I did on my own, purely spiritual nothing more but weed was a different story it just got to be too strong and I felt like I took too much acid and looked inward too far, not that I'm against that type of examination, but a person can achieve all the highs they want along with self awareness and mindfulness just by breathing deep and being a good person.

We moved into our condo November 21st of this year and we live a few miles from a reggae club, I bought a ticket for a show on Thanksgiving night, my wife asked me "what time does your concert start" when I looked at the ticket it said 2 am TWO AM WHAT THE FUCK WHO STARTS A SHOW AT 2 AM AND WHO THE FUCK GOES TO A SHOW AT 2 AM my wife just laughed in my face and said you'll be asleep by 10:30 so I ended up giving my ticket to my friend julie, I did see a two shows in Jamaica in 2013 and the specials back home in S.F. before I moved.

I saw deerhoof in SF years ago but they were a doom stoner sludge band who opened for high on fire, I enjoyed them though.

Re: what would I talk about

The regular life discussions have almost always been more interesting than talking a bout "punk" anyway.

You still doing any photography?

Re: what would I talk about

Here and there, travel, landscape, nature. Some city stuff, no social media pages though to show it though, but now that I have solid internet I might.

Hey it's Steph!, so good to hear from you! I don't think you're boring or that what you're up to now is lacking in any form, it's always good news when a friend's being good to himself.. I've been doing a lot in San Jose, I work a few jobs and I also book some all-ages punk shows and am hoping to save up enough to open our own venue before the end of the year with some other friends. I'm kind of a maternal figure to a lot of kids here, and I appreciate being able to be someone to others. That's hilarious there was a show starting at 2am!, that's stretching it, even for some of the 'late/afterparty' shows I've seen at houses in Oakland. Thanks for checking in with us all :) Best, Steph

Re: Dave!!!

I was just about to reply from my lame cell phone when I remembered that I had actually met you, seems like so long ago, not quite who I am now still holding on to a lame aversion of myself then, such a waste. Not meeting you, that was great, I still remember your story about giving the cholos cookies. You seemed so fragile, not mentally (you're quite strong) but in size I was afraid of bumping into you or stepping on your foot but small in size giant in mind I say.

Good deal, being there for the kids. I've had my share over the years especially lately. I used to think I hated people younger then me but Ive found I enjoy them very much and enjoy even more that they like me, so much to learn from everybody, so many moments to share so many things to say its always enjoyable when you leave judgement behind and play in what is and you just are.

I live outside Oakland in the suburbs 20 minutes by bike about 10 on BART the show I speak of was at a club called the new karibbean city in downtown Oakland its mostly current dancehall which I really do enjoy very much but that story is best left for another time or post. More importantly though I hope your club and ideas for it turn out beyond your wildest dreams and I wish nothing but success for you and all the friends you have made and that look to, its a wise choice on there behalf.
