random road trip 2006
After heading north when we crossed the Bay Bridge and luckily ending up in my home town—new rule: if passing exit for street anyone in car grew up on, you must take it—we traveled on around down the other side of the bay.
Random snack and safety supplies - in one!
Incredibly random snack: a fresh apple found in the trunk of our rental car
And then, after washing, turned out not to be ripe, so it was not a snack, in fact, after all.

It seems smaller to me now 2006
odd how taking away all the trees around it and painting it light blue actually seems to reduce the size of the house I lived in as a kid...

QotD: Your fantasy restaurant 2006
If you could open any sort of restaurant, what would it be like?
It would be like a cross between a dim sum place and a sushi boat place only instead of just a couple pieces of nigiri on a price-indicating little plate, there might be something from any number of cuisines. Little slice of roast beef with fresh grated horseradish, mac & cheese, spanish olives, gyoza, gnocci, fresh hot bacon, a little artichoke with aioli, a crab claw with hollandaise, tsukemono pickles, ramekin of soup, wedge of cheese.
The plates would indicate price and the wait staff (drag queens, punks, and perky goths) would bring around the hot food and serve really excellently mixed cocktails.
After 10pm about half the food would be desserts.
It would be called "Cameo".
(and if you open it, I get to eat there many many times for cost!)
A good reason to work up a sweat 2006
I loves me some Lord Loves A Working Man and 12 Galaxies is one of my favorite venues to see them in. If Joe & I aren't completely wiped out and have in fact safely returned from the aleatoric roadtrip, we may just see you there...
Then on Sunday:

NINO MOSCHELLA, the newest sensation of Bay Area based

His impassioned brand of neo-indie soul captured on
his debut album "The Fix" has been garnering large
amounts of critical praise and airplay. The
influential music blog Music For Robots calls his
Ubiquity recordings "absolutely fabulous...a record
that Steve Wonder should be making in 2006." It also
caused DJ Mag to label his accompanying EP "Single of
the month" and state, "Cut from the same cloth as
soul/funk legends Stevie Wonder, Prince, Betty Davis
and Sly Stone, 29 year old, multi-instrumentalist Nino
Moschella is what they call in A&R circles "a right
Hosting the evening and also performing is San
Francisco's own 9-piece 60's style Soul group LORD
LOVES A WORKING MAN. Rooted in the sounds of Stax and
Muscle Shoals, LLAWM captures the spirit of the horn
driven groups and Southern soul shouters of a by-gone
day. Known for keeping their audiences dancing,
romancing, and working up a sweat with original songs
and some rare covers, they pay respectful homage to
the tradition while infusing it with their own passion
Rounding out the evening will be DJ 4am, a favorite
soul and sound collage vinyl spinner of the late night
club scenes of the Hush Hush, Element, and Alpha
Lovers of soul and funk music should not miss this
chance to experience these new artists who will be
providing a rare live listening experience that
satisfies the appetite for sounds of the past as well
as sounds of the future.

Lovely downtown Oakland 2006
Great evening out to see Dreaming In A Firestorm, Tim Barsky's follow-up show to The Bright River. Recommended. One more show left, next Saturday. BART to 12th St, dinner at Ichiro sushi on 15th, Greyhounds at Cafe Van Kleef on 17th, and then down to 2232 MLK for the show. A fine evening!
