New York Shitty!

I am back in the rotten apple and it doesn't feel like I missed much. I hate that it's not hot here at all when Sauve is still at 95 every day. FUCK OFF WINTER YOU PROBABLY VOTED FOR TRUMP!
I have already been out doing stuff in the park and elsewhere but I am also really jetlagged and it's still weird to be around so many people speaking english. We had to play a show the day after we got back and I lost my voice and was so out of it we just told jokes for half the set. Oddly enough people said we never sounded better! I bought these great online guitar instruction videos so I can teach myself more and practice along with something. John has no time to give me lessons but he can show me stuff to learn once a week...I need some kind of lessons and homework or I can get too lazy and frustrated. People say I am sounding good though and the people are always right!
I have so many pics still from France but I will just throw a bunch up here and then move on to NYC stuff...I feel like I fell asleep to the smell of delicious frites and woke up to the aroma of orange cheetos. I assume I will be going to rallies and protests pretty soon...sigh...I miss freedom France!
Here are close neighbor Aline Crumb and I gossiping across the street very loudly! Me taking pics of the gallery opening of Pete Poplaski whose work is amazing. Crumb and John are admiring some of it here. Hiking with Sophie and her kids picking berries off the trees. The over the top ads on tobacco here where they show you that if you smoke you will get torn apart by jackals and shit. Mixed in with the beautiful pics of our hidden swim spot Sophie showed us. Those pics are half nude and we swim topless or the kids do anyway so I shall not post em.
Then a glorious siamese cat...I fed a stray while I was there a bunch...he was so happy he would see me and flip out. And a few pics from Nimes and a funny shop there...Nimes is hilarious and I love it. They try to have american hip shops but its all so bad. So that us about it for France on here...I shall post some NYC stuff soonish!

Last week in Freedom France! Just some pics of stuff here...IN FREEDOM LAND SANS TRUMP

We rode this steam train today which was touristy but fun and crazy but I will post the random pics I have on my desktop right now with some video and then post that stuff...we leave on the 24th and have some band recording to do and maybe some videos for fun...every day counts now so I will try to get all the fun stuff online in the next few days...as there will be more coming soon!
Some fun rocks kids decorated here..our posters are still up..the smallest 78 ever...me in front of our new house..stooping it! My dream of HUGE AMOUNTS OF NUTELLA..Star Wars seems popular here...new swimming place that is private and wonderful....some new art we bought from Laure Born an artist we adore here with dinosaurs and UFO's...and me proving I am in the illuminati and Robert Crumb not caring. And a few videos of Crumb playing some of his 78s for the podcast and for John.

I WILL NOT WATCH THE NEWS DAMMIT. Also, gig with Crumb!

I am refusing to watch the news while I have just two weeks left here...I almost gave in last night when I was on twitter reading Trump's insanity but I watched Game of Thrones spoilers instead. Now I know everything that is going to happen! Unless it's all a diversion to make the fans nuts. One video I found was made in 2016 though and their predictions were spot on for the first four episodes of season 7 so I think they are correct. I am waiting on the damn books to come out so I figured why not spoil things for myself in the meantime? It's so confusing as the show veered so far from the novels now...
Yep I am in the beautiful south of France going on about a TV show! That is how spoiled I am. We had our own music gig here last weekend and it went well. It was over 100 degrees in the gallery but it was still packed. Great crowd, nice people and they are so quiet here when you play it's so nice. No one is yelling over you or talking over your songs. The only videos of us playing that have turned up so far are on Facebook and I can't take them from there but I have some clips of Sophie, Robert and Millie playing. Robert sat in with both bands, us and then their new unnamed band and it was just a really fun two hours of music in a sauna. I have a few pics...still having a good time here. Feels like it's winding down a bit but we have done a lot and we still need to record and do more podcasts with Crumb so that's what we will be doing with the time we have left here along with more swimming and sight seeing. Here are some random pics...and nope that unicorn floaty ain't mine!
We got me posing in front of the poster of me...a leg lamp...the waterfalls I love...John and I signing posters to sell with Crumb of course as the main attraction...John with his french posse...some graffiti..do they love or hate the police? And Robert an John ready to play at our gig...so much fun! How did I get so lucky? More stuff soon!
