last blast: summer

oh yeah, fall is in the air, the light is changing to that wonderful smoky umber in the early evenings and anna asked me last night if i am looking forward to any thing, some thing, in the near future and oh yeah halloween is on the short list but oct. 31 is just a day for me halloween is a state of mind after all you are reading the words here of a man who has a freakin' jack 0'lantern tattoo fer crissakes and autumn simply makes me happy to be alive

but damn is it still late summer and i've had this tune stuck in my head this past week the sounds all redolent of a day at the beach the laid-back surf sounds of southern california i love surf music and this band called best coast is catchy as hell and if there is a poetic analogue to the laid-back so-cal vibe embodied by the band best coast then i think senor kevin opstedal is the sufer-skater poet laureate

so read opstedal click on his name in the side-bar and groove for one last blast of summer to the surf twangs of best coast and see if this song doesn't get stuck in your head

shoe-gaze + surf-rock !

Clown-suit, kitty, in-out burger,
beach, beer ... yeah.
I could definitely do that.

Very nice. My lingering adolescent now has a crush on the singer. R Mac's appearance was startling though.

agreed all round, gentlehommes. ronald's image is quite a kick in the pants but is funny as all get-out, esp. when you can see an older lady taking a snap of him thru the window as the red&yellow one steps out of in&out burger. frankly, i have a crush on the singer's tattoos. esp. the lovely bird on her right shoulder.
