Mmmmmmm. . . more lyrical, less Satanic! . . . / Sorry if I caused more confusion on the L.A. Robyn dates, but it's that darn (cat?) incorrect club listing's fault. In truth: Robyn is playing ONE night at Largo's, according to Amie Flannagan of Largo's - and that is Sat--day, November 15th. (If he's playing elsewhere on another date, I don't know. ) Doors open at 8:00 and the show starts somewhere around 9:00. For those who wish to contact Largo's directly (the number was posted previously by the kind soul who first gave us the news, but here it is again), their phone number is (213) 852-1073, and their fax number is (213) 852-1851. I made several telephone attempts at various times to no avail, so I faxed them today. I came home to a telephone message from Amie putting me straight. They do not sell advance tickets. As alluded by a previous poster (he of the protein wafers), it seems to be some kind of restaurant with a small performance area. Springing for dinner sounds like a good idea. I'm going to see if it's veggie-friendly (sprouts? must be.) and if so, any of you going can play guess-who-is-West L.A.-and-her-husband while you wait for RH to hit the stage.

She knew Jabby had hidden her socks somewhere. Perhaps under the big rock out in the middle of the clearing? No. Too obvious. Up in the giant Oak tree where that huge old snowy owl lived? Perhaps, but he was afraid of heights, so that was unlikely. Oh, and they were her very favorite socks. Each toe was a different color of the rainbow. The heals were black. Her Great Aunt Soffie had given them to here for her fifth birthday. And Soffie had gone to heaven last Spring, just when the leaves were starting to come out. She had loved Aunty Soffie and she really loved those socks. But it was bed time and all the leaves were off the trees. Perhaps she would dream about Aunt Soffie. She'd look for them again tomorrow and then do something to that horrible Jabby. Yes she would.

For the second time in three weeks, the Bills pulled out a victory without scoring a touchdown. Steve Christie kicked three field goals as Buffalo eeked out a 9-6 win over the Miami Dolphins. "We got a win," said Bills quarterback Alex Van Pelt, who was making his first start. "It wasn't pretty. The conditions weren't great, but we got out of there with a division win, a big win against a rival. That's all that matters." The Bills helped their cause by knocking Dolphins QB Dan Marino out of the contest. Marino suffered a sprained left ankle in the first half and had to leave the game during the third quarter. The Bills also had to overcome major injuries of their own. They played the game without linebackers Chris Spielman and Damien Covington and still held Miami to 230 total yards and the two field goals. "There were so many heroes, I don't even know where to begin," Bills coach Marv Levy said. "Our defense, under extremely trying circ-mstances, did a spectacular job." The win moves Buffalo into a three-way tie for second place in the AFC East with the Dolphins and Patriots heading into next weekend's matchup with New England.

. . . . I know I'm an LA girl now, I've seen more movies in the last three months than in the last five years. We're off to see "Wind in the Willows" - I had no idea this was coming out, it features several Pythoners - Idle, Palin, Cleese, Terry Jones . . . . I'll let you know if it was worth it!

DATE: Sun Nov 2 10:38:27 PST 1997
When I go to, I get that "Sorry, Ain't Nothing Here" screen, which directs you to the home page. Well, you're certainly all much more computer-savvy than me, I'm sure you'll be able to help me out next time. Perhaps I'll get my PC on line by then, which is all Bill Gates wants, anyway. /To Faux-Myk: You can 'know' with absolute certainty what dream elements are productions of your own psyche and which are intrusions? Buddhists, Sufis, et al. would insist the average person hasn't a clue. That's not a cut-down, Mr. Not-Myk, I'm musing along with you. I, another average person, agree with them. Idries Shah's "The Commanding Self" is a great read (very direct and readable!) along those lines.

I want to know what measurement you use to differentiate a dream from that which is cynically called reality. Is it the colors, the sounds, the wild improbabilities? Or the unsequestered jumble of occurrences put together as if by some amateur editor? I have dreams where the sky might be salmon pink and I wake up and it is. But somehow you know when its' happening for real, some kind of shodawy impermanence haunts the dreamscape. And the charactors what of them? They so passively give up existence after their scene is over. Worse than a mayfly's few hours of precious life, these dream-folk seem shakily transform before our eyes and then are ruthlessly cut off or vanish into fading memoy. Do they, on any level at all enjoy autonomy or feel joy or pain? I know for sure that I am not the author or the director of some of the bit parts and guests stars that slide through my uncunscious mind, and I also remember the reluctance of one or two of them to relinquish their borrowed imagined five seconds of being. They knock down the panels and escape from the dream world into something more tangable and several days later can still be capable of inspiring fear or lust. Perhaps this is the object of their existance, their way of evolving from the thought to idea to belief. Still better a life of misery - at least solid flesh nand blood misery-than the chancey occupation of mthe dreambeings.

I almost forgot to say Welcome Back mooch. Good to hear from you again. Oh, and Satan I read your charming little comment earlier on this board. You are bad. But then I guess you would be...ha ha ha! (to be said in the manner of Steve Martin in the Little Shop of Horrors dentist scene when he can't get the gas mask off... oh, you know the one..). Hello Myk - I hope the chat works tomorrow. If it doesn't I skip back here. Decoy, rOb - hope to speak to you as well. CW - I hope the Bills win for you. Well, I'm really going to go now. Oh, here's a lyric ...

I've got 43 minutes of time left. Hmm. I'll go look up Nick Drake stuff. I've calmed down a bit about him now, which is good because I was obsessing. This is fun, I can talk about anything and not worry about anyone from work walking by. La, la, la. The Supernaturals are really excellent by the way. Hmm. And Silver Sun. You know I love them. Ermmm, I got the new Homer single today. It's on green vinyl and my turntable lives in another town. Handy. The Dear Janes are supporting Robyn again for the London date. Good. They have a song about Ron Sexsmith so I was pleased to see them at the Ron Sexsmith concert a few weeks back.

Well, what a surprise, it's me! I've chosen to log on in the dead zone. I'm going out grooving in an hour and thought I'd see what the cyber cafe was like. I'm in an empty room, - oh, hang on here's someone - oh, he's gone. Nice to hear from you WLA - I hope we get to chat tomorrow. Is Satan sleeping? I'm sure I can hear his snores from here. Joe - I'll have to get the Sundays single, since I can't stop playing the same four tracks on the album. I wish Harriet would really scream sometimes. I find that I can do it very well for her. This is kind of typical. I log on in the morning at work and no-one is there and I log on Sat--day night and no-one is there! But then again, Sat--day night is party night I suppose.

Someday the whole first page of this board will be filled with all the numerious archives, won't that be weird.I cant wait till Robyn tours again. When I see him live, I clap so hard at the end of his songs,that my hands hurt!I love old Soft Boys material too.I got an old live Soft Boys bootleg that I listen to regularly.Its got two songs that are my favorites..but I don't know the names of the songs.One song is about a Hangman--and The Judge of the Jury..Great song. Another is is real sing-songy and it sounds like Robyn is almost talking in a foriegn language. It has a line that goes; "and The moon shone bright, Not a cloud in sight..". If anyone knows these songs or has a good copy of some soft boys gigs , please let me know. till next time~~

As usual, I'm alone here with SATAN!!! I think he's in my time zone. Why of course, he'd love California. He really DOES love this board ("He's bored . . . he's the CHAIRMAN of the. . ."). It's just the last thing a fallen archangel wants to hear is the collective yawn of the RH posters: "OH. . . it's HIM again." Pretty depressing, even for the antichrist. Surely the Witnesses of Jehovah have a site somewhere, my dark one? "I've Got A Message For You", indeed! . . . Phaedrus, MANY THANKS! I'll dial up Largo and see what's what . Please say it's not a Satanic prank - Dial-A-Prayer? I'll check out McCabe's site, too - thanks! I've got a promo only thing Robyn recorded there. I think my live "The Ghost In You" was recorded there (Ma in Michigan has the vinyl I didn't sell, so I can't check). I've heard some popsters say Richard Butler was one of their fave pop writers, and I never realized what a fine song TGIY was until I heard Robyn's very sweet version. It's a different animal without a squawking synth and Mr. Butler's cigarette voice./I do have the Gotta Let This Hen Out video - I was just throwing out a line for response (so, thanks!). Yeah, amusing closeup of Robyn's saliva. Also, Robyn with that watery buffet car tea - good for keeping you warm gliding beside that frozen lake./ HEY, Eno fans. "Here Come The Warm Jets" - classic! I wish you could hear my friend Wren's version of "Needles in the Camels Eye", it's superb, and committed to tape. A few Leeds luminaries (Wolfy from the Lorries, some Rose of Avalanche guy, etc.) are the backing dudes. Come to Largo's and I'll bring it with me! Who else is going?
