rip Lee Fierro

Fierro who starred in the original "Jaws" returned to the role in 1987′s “Jaws: The Revenge.” Fierro, who worked for decades with Island Theatre Workshop on the Massachusetts island ― where “Jaws” was shot ― resided at an assisted living facility in Ohio, where she died on Saturday, the Martha's Vineyard Times reported. Fierro was known in Martha’s Vineyard for teaching drama to more than 1,000 children, artistic director Kevin Ryan told the local newspaper. But she earned her place in cinema lore with one swipe of her hand. Local novelist Nicki Galland said Fierro was “tickled” by the recognition and recounted an anecdote Fierro told her about Spielberg’s directing.
“Lee, you’re not on Broadway, tone it down,” the famed filmmaker was said to have told Fierro.

Kurt Day.

Kurdt(sic) died today. I will never forget the impact of the news broadcast as I entered into my apartment that afternoon. I was in a state of absolute shock and sadness, staring at what seemed to be an entire generation falling head-first into a world-wide mass depression. Even hearing crazy ass Courtney reading on the grass surrounded by his fans his goodbye note. Horrible. You're never forgotten Kurdt. Even running into Michael Stipe a few months ago, you were the singular topic of conversation for us. Michael reminding me with a happy frown- "...he was just so, so sweet."  RIP KURDT. I hope you visit us often. You were too good and too sensitive for this morally impoverished planet. Take things light now. Bye.

Creative and Rational fusing landscapes: TRUE ORDER

The Aquanet Garage

We cannot prove that TIME exists. Just like FAITH, you just gotta believe. But when it comes to quarantined photo album digs in order to kill time, TIME captured in a 35mm photograph can exist as a preserved hardcopy exhibit of another time and place. My AQUANET rock n roll pre-hardcore music years...

I don't know about you, but that ain't no damn 6 feet.

I love Steve. 

So many great times and stories with Steve back at CBGS's and Kingshead Inn. He stayed real and never sold out. My bud and fellow Bronx bro, Steve.  bye.

Flatten the curve? huh. I wonder what's gonna happen when aliens from outer space come land on top of The Lincoln Center... what 'curve' will need to be flattened when everyone dies from spontaneous hysteria and our electricity blows out indefinitely due to the electromagnetic charges from the martian spacecraft. We are all literally under Martial Law right now- period.  You think we have rights? lol. Nope- we have privileges, and that's all we have ever had. The proof is in the pudding, the corona pudding. bye.


Cornell Quarentine Friday!

And you stare at me
In your Jesus Christ pose
Arms held out
Like you've been carrying a load
And you swear to me
You don't want to be my slave
But you're staring at me
Like I, like I need to be saved
Saved, like I need to be saved
In your Jesus Christ pose
In your Jesus Christ pose
Arms held out, in your Jesus Christ pose
Thorns and shroud
Like it's the coming of the Lord
And I swear to you
That I would never feed you pain
But your staring at me
Like I, like I'm driving the nails, nails
Like I'm driving the nails, nails
Like I'm driving the nails, nails, nails
Like I'm driving the nails, nails

In the Jesus Christ pose
In the Jesus Christ pose… bye.

 Excellent research tool :

   r.i.p. Ayn
It's too bad Ayn is remembered for the theme of 'Objectivism' that she had invented & coined, and not her epically creative mind that spawned her philosophical (now cultic political) ideas. Ayn came to the U.S. from Russia with a goal of becoming a movie screenwriter. She married an actor (Frank O'Connor) and she buried herself  directly next to him - even taking on his last name! Sound selfish to you, or selfless? She was an artist who married an artist and she left behind some extraordinary ideas and themes in her literary works that only a sensitive and unselfish soul could have discharged upon us. bye, Ayn and Frankie. Ayn, you fooled us all. Well, not me.
