It's pretty disgusting the way people on the coasts talk about midwesterners, particularly the southern regions. I'm in a very posh hotel restaurant, sitting outside by a massive pool. Someone next to me just mentioned Ohio and Kentucky-- his friend imitated playing a banjo and hummed Dueling Banjos. All the wealthy, beautiful people at his table broke out in laughter.

So an old guy in a wheelchair lives in a Cleveland suburb. Turns out he's a Nazi death camp guard. Instead of going to trial in Germany as an accessory to 29,000 deaths at Sobibor camp in Nazi-occupied Poland, he's been returned to his home. That trip to Germany might put strain on the poor old guy! So a Cincinnati Court of Appeals said he should hang out at home until they examined his case a little further. Come on, Ohio, what the fuck...

Yesterday was crazy, I feel so honored to be in their world. The evening, and today, were not hands-free (crazy) at all. But I'm hoping that things will change when I fall off the wagon tonight at Lit. I miss my quiet home but so excited about the adventure. As if a satellite fell out of the sky.

I don't recall the last time I was in London, has it really been that long? I am almost too comfortable here. In 1987 I spent the summer in Ireland. A year later I lived in Grantham for six months. After Slint broke up I went to art college in Norwich for a year. Did so many UK and European tours with Palace Brothers, Tortoise, Stereolab, Royal Trux, Aerial M, Papa M, Bonny 'Prince' Billy, Zwan, Slint... I love my English friends and family but my heart is in Ireland and Scotland. Virgin Atlantic is great but overall another hellish journey ho ho ho.
