Your cat drives a hard bargain.

I was a little surprised. Maybe he just can't get into the spirit of the season.

he wasn't complaining about the Carousel.

  Tue. 12/24/13 3:32pm phat:

actually, I suspect the cat needs food and it's nothing to do with Queen.

Happy Xmas to Nate.

re: Jook reissue on Sing Sing as 2nd best reissue of 2013.

Was the Coloured Balls "Ball Power" rereleased by that label in 2013 as well? That one takes it -- very hard to find previous to that. Jook saw a CD reissue about five years ago or so.

Hey Nate- Digging the tunes. I think in our drunken haze we left our wine opener behind...if so, please put in the "A" mailbox. Thanks!

I just set up a shitload of gear in a studio. If anyone wants to come jam on January 1, I could particularly use a drummer or bass player, but anything'll do, and we have it all here. 55th st. nyc.
