Looking Through A Looking-Glass Onion

Click photo to enlarge

Wonder & Pepperland combined couldn't have been better.
I had a super blast at Beatlemania Magic,
it was sooooooo freakin' cool.

Of course
Blue Meanies & Queens Of Hearts had to show but not enough to override the wondrously, fantastically, groovin' time

Well, I get there just before
Beatlemania Magic
took the stage.
Unlike most concerts, there WERE a few folks,
besides moi,
standing in front of the stage.
The band begins and without my prescripts on I couldn't tell 'em from The Beatles...

After a song or two "Lennon" asked
if he could get some help from the crowd.
Meanie Alert,
did my best British salute
and as my right-foot hit the ground an aluminum can
was soundly crushed.
No one ever,
during an event,
throws trash on the ground and the dance area was pristine when I got there.
Anywho, I'm dancing to the next number
and my foot bumps something else...
I look down.....
another RC Cola can at my feet.
Someone wants to see this old ape fall on his old ape ass,
Well. I dance so that I'm facing the audience,
stare about,
raise my foot and totally flatten that can, too;
I turn back to the band but butt is shaking in a manner which I tried to relate a big
A minute later some really old guy,
he must have been ten years younger than I,
(or was "Sent")
forward and picked the crushed cans up.
I gave him a thanky bow.

Anywho, I'm dancing away. One babe appears to my left and asks if she can dance with me. She wasn't my type. I told her 'I'ts a free dance-floor, dance where you wish'.

this Being of
splendiferously beautiful sweetness
appears before myself.
We, danced every dance till break time
when she asked
"Would you like me to meet you here after the break?"
I replied,
"Yes! I'd like that VERY much."
So, I wandered around during the fireworks
which was greatly laced with chickens being scarified
to the prevailing mythology
but I was in a state of
dazing delight a barely noticed
and did NOT care at-t'all. Then, Beatlemania Magic fires it up and there she be again.
This wiggling, waving, willowy wonderful, young woman.
We danced every dance.
She knew the words to ALL the songs,
singin' along,
lookin' eye to eye,
I never...NEVER, professional or amateur,
had ANYONE who danced sooooooooooooo
wonderfully in-tune with me.
She was magnificently marvelous!

It was a night as close as one could be to living an impossible dream.
This has been one of the best summers...EVER!

Now onwards to one of the most atomically cool Autumns...
a wondrously grand Winter.......
then a supernal Spring and forward to an even more capital summer next year.

A very special
to the young lady.
I hope to dance with you next year at the festival.

Stay on groovin' safari, Tor

________ Hi ________

Howdy do ?

Last Tuesday night was a majorly groovin' gas.
Here is the old ape Tor
shakin' it to one of the finest entertainers anywhere & anytime.

After that number,
there mus-ta been person or persons
somewhere behind Tor's back...

No doubt some of those
Brave & Free
from behind your back

...doin' "Something" concerning my dancing, Ms. Fish waxed even more wonderful.
Ms. Fish made a HUGE point of saying how amazingly "Right" I am and tore those folks brand new ones.

I'm trying to get a copy of that video
the person kept filming

Being praised & defended by such an apogee of bodacious loveliness & tremendous talent was quite fine,

UPDATE: July 13th
I just discovered this video of
Ms. Fish's final number last Tuesday.
You'll note old Tor putting in
my earphones 'cause I'm
about 4 ft. from the speakers
and Ozzy covers do, generally, be LOUD!
This is after 3 hours of dancin'.

Ms. Fish
is such a super talented fox!

...and now a word from
the genius who made our personal computers possible.....

“Taking LSD was a profound experience, one of the most important things in my life.
LSD shows you that there’s another side to the coin, and you can’t remember it when it wears off, but you know it.
It reinforced my sense of what was important."
- Steve Jobs

Sometimes, the L S D giveith
the L S D takeith away.
I wish I could've been there to have YELLED,
"Steve, GO...TO...THE...DOCTOR!"

I was out dancing for three hours last night but probably won't be this eve.

I hope all you folks keep on the beam.

If you have a chance to see
Samantha Fish
take it for she, and her band, put on a
It's worth every penny.

All I may steal from you is something you never ever had.

Distant Signals

I had a great time
the Rush Tribute show
last night.
I do believe that the
Religious Authority
hast invaded my new hangin' zone.
If so, it wouldn't be the first time.
Last eve was the ONLY, numerO uno, unique happening for this old ape and that was...there were MORE dudes dancing than girls.

the RA have invaded,
more than likely, though.
those monkeys didn't interfere with this ape's boogalooin' & fruggin'
who cares?

Anywho, it was a fantastically fine show by
Distant Signals

Too bad her face WAS so reflective.

It was wonderful to have live songs which identify/glorify some of the
Dreamers & Misfîts
and I did dance my old arse off.

Here be me wee redo of
"The Little Bummer Boy."
New title, same old [too bad] song.

Stay on groovin' safari,
