Husker Du Wiki it, the backyard I grew up in, into
and the place I started street performing at age 16
after thrown out of my house by an alcoholic stepfather
who would not let me use his mower and gas can to mow
lawns for money, to feed us....that's another story....
living out of a 1963 Super Sport Chevy Imapala,
it was a hard top, red with white fake convertible lines roof.
It had power windows, air conditioning , every extra you can imagine.
Leather seats etc, well it had a seized up engine a friend sold it to me
knowing I liked old Chevys, he was not sure what it was, but said it
had a seized up engine and was sinking into his uncle farm, it was spotless.
I put a rebuilt engine into it and and....its now a show car, sold it
to another friend I paid 100 bux for it. he paid 3,000. I had to at one
point dive into a gravel pit looking for it after the Police put it into neutral
and submerged it, for being at kegger party, under age, after we left Porkys
where girls skated out your orders, just like in American Graffitti
I later found you can push start any old chevy that has an automatic
transmission two speed power glide. The Later paid off when I was 18
working for Royal American Shows in FLorida When I mistakingly
turned off the engine that was overheating and it vapor locked.
Quite a feature. Someone gets behind you, you have to do about
45 mph, yep on the freeway, then drop it into low and BA BOOOM
off you go in my 65 Super Sport Convertible that landed me in Tarpon
Springs FLorida, became captain of a shrimp boat by night, roamed Florida
beaches by day, juggling for handouts or what have you, girls, food
a place to park and sleep in my car, enter Ozona Florida....
Tune in last week for next weeks stories, good night
Working on a bio now for Buskers net , as requested.

Tell you what, anyone that crosses me that knows me.
Knows what they have coming. 10 to 100 time more
than what you do, is coming back at you, if you even survive that.
That also goes for the good you do for me
Wait for it...
Now for some relaxing music

Enjoy.

Husker Du Could you be the One
Lyrics
Well, could you be the one they talk about?
Well, hiding inside behind another door
Or is it only happiness you want?
Does wanting a feeling matter any more?

It doesn't mean that much to me
Sometimes I don't mean that much to you
And I don't even know what I'm hiding for
And I don't even know what I'm crying for
Don't even know what I'm hiding for
I'm hiding inside, I'm crying inside

Well, could you be the one they talk about?
Well, life is a game that only you can make
Well, maybe I'm about to throw it out
I've given it all, that's all that I can take

It doesn't mean that much to me
Sometimes I don't mean that much to you
And I don't even know what I'm hiding for
And I don't even know what I'm crying for
I don't even know

Well, could you be the one? Could you be the one?
Could you be the one that's hanging all around?

Don't even know what I'm crying for
I don't even know what I'm hiding for
I'm crying inside, I'm hiding inside

Yes, don't even know what I'm crying for
I don't even know what I'm hiding for
Don't even know, could you be the only
Broken hearted one?

Well, could you be the one? Could you be the one?
Could you be the one that's hanging all around?

Don't even know, well, don't even know

Well, could you be the one? Could you be the one?
Could you be the one? Could you be the one?

Gravity Lyirics
It's only getting darker
It may be moving faster
Well, it won't stop spinning
But how long will it remain?

This repulsive world
The crimes we all commit
It's not your gravity
It's not your gravity, gravity

The tension keeps building
The changes are rapid
We're through competing
Is it better to retreat?

This repulsive world
The crimes we all commit
It's not your gravity
It's not my gravity, gravity

End Lyrics
my son took me to the movie Gravity just before he boarded
his plane to Salt Lake City , Utah.
I recall hitchhiking back from CA in 1979 after
trying my hand at street performing at venice Beach, Laguna Beach and Huntington Beach.
I sucked, I got put in my place for sure. No doubt made me better, stronger, faster and more original I was only 17.
On the way back, I was at a truck stop like I said, hitchhiking through...
ya that's when I saw the Rainbow hovering over tow twin peak mountains.
It was touching down and fading left, you could see both ends touching down
on the face of each mountain, at one point it was perfect symmetry , touching
each mountain about 1/3 of the way up and arching far above them both.
Very unbelievable and the whole truck stop was watching, like it was Close Encounters
of the Third kind, thought coming in... it probably was, the only kind.

You probably know, last year, November 28th, Thanksgiving my mom died
on my Birthday.
My son is back home now, a month so far, he designs art for websites.
he will be going back to Utah for that season al job again, with that
locked in, I am again for the first time in a long time able to plan,
and go where I want. Mom said when Mickey left to go to Utah...
Now don't go running off to Florida or California again, wait until
Mickey gets back in case he needs you or things don't work out.
Thanks mom, for giving, and thank you all for reading. I like to write.
