The Coolest Thing I've Seen This Week - Yet

I *am* nearly out the door for that Brigadoon with Nipples - Starwood. But I was looking for a copy of Zappa's "200 Motels" to show my kid the classic rock head. It isn't on DVD! as far as I can tell, but I ran into this on you tube. It's nearly nine minutes long, but just soooo cool.
Please join me in lighting some incense and pouring That Elixir for the spirit of the Hero Zappa

July Is Starwood Season, Not Blog Season

OK, obviously I won't get anywhere near the 4 posts I've been trying to do minimum during this month. I could write some musing about Starwood, and the 30 years of work we've done to keep it rolling, and the groovy thing is has become, and it's groovy offspring, too.

I don't have time for that any more than I do for more cogent posts on the Nine Moons project or any other cool stuff. I just spent a number of days typesetting the 64 page program booklet, doing copying, packing my own stuff, etc, and it's Starwood on my mind. So I'll take a minute and list some non-ACE websites about Starwood.

This is cool - ultimate Starwood camping list - all I'd add is a 10x20 Hercules Canopy. There's really a lot on Youtube - and Stang's Jesus Stain vid keeps getting hits. Incidentally, we keep looking over our shoulder at the giant chain of hotels and resorts that use the name Starwood - but I'd assert we had it first, way back in 19-hunnert-and-81. Good to get mentions from musicians, especially after the fact. I've just learned about 'nings', and there's one for Starwood, too.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to cool occult discussions with the gang at the fest, and maybe cornering Isaac and Skip to work toward the next step in the Initiate's thing. I'll be out of touch for days now, so enjoy your Summer here in North America, and deal with winter if you;re not.
