After 8 years, a room! Now what was I thinking of?

Bottomfeeder. No it's not what you think of, though the thought is attractive. A bottomfeeder is a fish that feeds on scraps, dregs and various flotsam on the ocean floor. If that creature does not exist
then I would have to invent it. I would like to dredge up all my idle musings, nonsensical things, obscure lyrics from obscure artists, useless facts, in fact anything with no practical value whatsoever.
Anybody wants to go with me is free to do so. Let's happily trawl the ocean bottom for bits and pieces from here and there.

Congratulations on your new room, Bods!! At last!!! Eto pa buena mano ko sa 'yo..

Here’s the introduction of the Tom Waits thing I promised you… [part 1 lang muna ‘to ha kasi hirap akong mag type ng nakahiga at pagod pa ako. Hehehe]

Two-Part Harmony

Just a short bus-ride west of downtown Los Angeles there’s a Chinese restaurant called Red Eight. Inside, the walls are painted a horrible shade of mental-institution yellow. Nobody goes there. That’s what Tom Waits likes about it.

Waits, who lives in the neighbourhood, is hanging around town devoting his nights to “Demon Wine”, a play that he’s appearing in. Today he’s got a lunch date with a musician colleague who’s in LA for a round of interviews at his new record company. They’ve crossed paths on a number of occasions and swapped musicians for their tours and recording dates, cultivating a friendship built on common interests and mutual respect. His friend’s name is Declan, but everyone calls him Elvis.

Elvis Costello, sporting pointy sideburns, his trademark shades and black leather car-coat, finds his way to the Red Eight first. He’s with his wife, Cait O’Riordan. It’s an unseasonably warm day, but the Red Eight is cool inside. Soon Kathleen Brennan turns up with her husband Tom in tow. Waits is casually eccentric in a too-small suit, his hair colored red for the play. It’s growing out and the roots show strands of grey. There’s a round of hugs and smiles and greetings, and Kathleen disappears towards home, inviting Cait along. A couple of other hangers-on vanish, and then there’s nobody in the Red Eight but a waitress, Elvis Costello and Tom Waits.






to be continued...

wow!
The room suddenly bloomed with yellow (not the institutional kind ha) with you as my first visitor hehe. More like yellow blooms. Thanks! I needed a visitor para naman hindi ma-close down ang room agad!
Mukhang okay yang interview. Really cool intro. Btw dont type the rest okay? Pahiram mo na lang sa akin ang book
so I can relish it in private.

Elvis Costello and Tom Waits! Brilliant!
Teka kelan ba tong interview?
Because you see, Elvis Costello (real name Declan McManus) is now married to someone else. Do you know who?
The great song enchantress no less - DIANA KRALL......

Whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Diana Krall???? I love her!!!!

The interview was in 1990 pa.. Maganda yung conversation nilang dalawa. Better nga kung hiramin mo nalang kasi im sure madami pang ibang names dito na interested ka na di ko lang alam. Pati yung kay Woody andito din, ^_^

yes, the Diana Krall.
Ewan ko nga bakit nagustuhan ni Diana Krall yun. Elvis looks so nerdy while Diana is such a goddess.

Tagal na pala nyang interview. So many things have happened na. Sigurado si Woody Allen hindi pa hinihiwalayan ni Mia Farrow nun hehe...

Yes, my eternal gratitude if you can lend me the book.

Syempre naman you'll get to borrow the book. Swap tayo. Pahiramin mo din ako ng Theroux ha? :)

Teka tingnan ko kung what year yung interview kay Woody ^_^

Oh guess what! On the same book I have a 1990 interview with Mia Farrow, and then the interview of Woody is from 1995.

There’s another very short 1974 interview of Tom Waits, too, in which he says, “…Everything influences me—conversations, expressions, jokes, bus drivers, clerks, even the maid who made my bed this morning at seven while I was in it and emptied my ash tray before I had time to put a cigarette out. I’m an imagist, or a curator. I collect nocturnal emissions and inebriated travelogues.”

Paul Theroux is the reason why I fell in love with travel literature. I have almost all his books - sayo na lahat yun hehe.
Vintage Woody sigurado yung interview dun. Pahiram talaga ha

How do you collect nocturnal emissions?

Ourselves?
Mas mahirap analyze yun kasi double nocturnal emissions na yun hehe. Now before these emissions get out of hand, I will relate something.

STREET NAMES Part 1

Ever notice how subdivisions name their streets? Along a common theme, usually. Greenhills has US presidents guarding their homes : Polk St., Wilson, Eisenhower etc. Valle Verde has veggies: Spinach St, Cabbage St. Etc.

There's this little subdivision I pass through and I always get a good laugh everytime. They have birds for street names....

Cardinal St, Woodpecker St, Puffin St., Nightingale, Chicadee....so far so good.

Now it gets a little hairy. Eagle St. Parang di bagay kasi puro small birds lang dati di ba?. There's Kingfisher, medyo malaki din.

Eh madami pang street. The namers I think are running out of names....biglang may Yellow Bird st, and Blue Bird St. Still not bad hehe....

Now the ornithologically-challenged developers really run out of names, because now you see Lovebird St. Hahaha. And the biggest booboo of all: BIGBIRD ST! Hahahahahaha..

And for the finale.........talagang wala na talagang maisip ang mga mokong o kaya they have a wicked sense of humor..........
SESAME STREET!!!!!

ano kaya iniisip nung mga nakatira sa Lovebird St, sa Big Bird St, sa Sesame st? Hahahahah.

"langhya, ang pangit ng pangalan ng kalye natin ah. Walang ka-klas klas man lang! Leche!"

"kainggit namn yung mga nasa Chicadee. Gandang pangalan nun ah."

Now I bet the residents of Big Bird, Sesame and Lovebird spend their times
drinking on their sidewalks trying to drown out in alcohol their total misfortune in living in such a street hehehe

wow may video pa ha!
Black pala si Major Harris. Ngayon ko lang nalaman hehe.

Yeah talagang there's some woman moaning in the background towards the end of the song. Medyo risky ngang patugtugin eh hehe. Parang madadala ka ng song.
Maigsi nga lang yang ganyang moaning eh. Madami pang songs na mas mahaba pa you think you were listening to some porno song, if there was such a thing haha
