I leave you with this important note

Diana Rigg was one of my first great loves. It wasn't the leather exactly, but that didn't hurt. On the sidewalk in SF, someone wrote the words, "I love Diana Rigg." It's an old piece of sidewalk and the words were etched in it long ago. When last spotted Diana was a guest host on Masterpiece Theater. She looked great, but the leather thing wouldn't work anymore.

The really big news is that I figured out the little strummed riff at the beginning of "I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better". I used to know how to play it on guitar, but the guitar is not the same as that most perfect of instruments, the ukulele.

Oh, and I just thought I'd mention that America is culturally dead in the fucking water. I mean, name something cool and new from America. What, like, Justin Timberlake? No, really.

And to prove my point, I'm going to watch the second movie in the Daywatch/Nightwatch series. I watched Nightwatch the other night. It was great. Who could have imagined an utterly cool horror movie, in Russian and set in modern Moscow? Meanwhile in America, they're planning a remake of My Favorite Martian. That and all of the rockin' bands are from, like, Finland.

At least there's Dwight.
The Heartaches Are Free - Dwight Yoakam

I have been in love and heartbroken over a couple of really lovely crazy women. I don't think I regret that. Dwight puts it well. In fairness to crazy women, I am no bargain.

Anne Murray can kick Diana Riggs' ass. And what's wrong with grandmothers in leather?

It's just not the same.

Track one on that last fm link

Apparently, Seattle band, first winner of MTV Basement Tapes, maybe with this song. It's not bad. The MTV thing makes me like it less, which is really unfair.

Diana Rigg is still an attractive woman, albeit I agree the leather is no longer an option. Come to think on it, leather doesn't really work anymore, full stop. It just reminds me of Lenny Kravitz and that is most definitely uncool.

It's not just America, either. Culture is dead in the water. Probably.

Take it easy, Jon. At least I now know where not to eat if I ever get to visit San Francisco. Waiters always get sniffy when one asks for water. Bartenders, too. Fuck 'em.
