cut and paste paul, st.vincent, marion davies

today i got my infected under arm cut open in order to get rid of the infected stuff. it wasn't a very pleasant event. i now have a large bandage taped from my left collarbone to the bottom of my left ribcage. it looks like i've been shot, which is kind of cool i guess. after the doctor i mailed off another copy of 'ghost waltz' to some fella in texas. i'm wondering if he is friends with aaron rollins or johnny lloyd rollins if you're into that kind of thing. i believe i've sold about 60 cds now, which is a lot more than i thought i'd have by this time. very nice.
so saturday is the drumming gig for bob fisher's band. it will be nice to play a show where i can just sit in the back and groove along. apparently i'm supposed to play 3 songs acoustic & sell my cd's as well at this gig. i'm not sure if that will be good or slightly odd. maybe it will be slighty good. we'll see.
i've been listening to st.vincent's album 'marry me'. i've got to say that it is one of the best albums by a new/current artist in a very long time. key tracks for me are: marry me, all my stars aligned, landmines, and what me worry? i dislike when people do that "they should like _______ mixed with _______", but she really does sound like bjork singing fiest songs with better melodies. 4 out of 5 stars.
last thursday i recieved in the mail miss marion davies autograph. this sounds like i'm nuts but when i hold it i get very starstuck and crazed fan like. my brain does that whole "she touched this!" thing, which i know is a bit odd but its still a nice feeling. i ordered a 8x10 picture of her which i'm going to frame with the autograph. i will place her next to paul mccartney.

love to you,
mr. paul starling

It's nice to see a more personal page from you. I'm glad your cd sales are going so well.
