JANUARY 2022

Welcome to the new year!  We made it.  Kind of.  I can’t wait until it is February 22 2022 – that will be 2/22/22.  These are the kinds of ideas I entertain myself with these days.  However, if you’d like…

SEPTEMBER 2021

Wow. A month went by. Really fast. How come time dragged so slowly when I was waiting to be 21?

Hello Sageheads! 

Miss us?  We miss you!  We’re sorry we dropped off the radar, and yet, of course, we didn’t really go anywhere since COVID19 came to town.  All our gigs were cancelled of course, but still we feel we…

HOW CAN YOU HAVE A TRIAL WITH NO WITNESSES?

So much going through my mind!  Shakira!  J-Lo! How can you have a trial without witnesses?  Conflict, conflagrations, Koalas. WTF is up in Martinez with bad landlords and Armando’s… I mean, Armando’s was one of the pioneers in bringing life…

KARMA IN RETROGRADE: GOD IS LAUGHING

Hello Sageheads! 

November already. It’s amazing how fast time goes by these days.  Couldn’t wait to turn 18… it seemed like time dragged on and on.  Now, there’s a lot more sand in the bottom of the hourglass than in…

Season of the Bitch

Hello Sageheads!
