    _heal the bay_ are folks trying to help get the waters off of so cal not so foul and filthy from human abuse to it. humans can get smarter about this, I think. there's cards you can get (they asked for one of my pictures for one) here:


        for some donating to what I think is a very happening cause seeing I paddle my kayak in the l.a. harbor and waters outside it and know firsthand of some of the foulness. I know we can get it together and help this group help get things healthier for all of us.

        ...and saturday raymond's having part II: cutting-room floor show... I wish I could be there but I fly to tokyo the day before to make music... home xmas day. I bring nels - his first time in japan!

Dear friends,

After hearing a rumor about Odetta's health, I phoned her manager this
evening and he confirmed for me that Ms. Odetta is receiving treatment
in a New York hospital, where she will be for at least another week.

It's Odetta's goal to recover and be in good health so she can perform
as planned at Obama's inauguration, Doug told me.

Odetta would appreciate cards and letters--please drop her a note if you
have the time.  Please also forward this information to anyone you know
who appreciates Odetta.  One note or card is a small joy... perhaps a
steady stream of them is something stronger.  It sure would be amazing
for Odetta to perform at the inauguration, and a shame for her to have
to miss such an event.

Here's the address:

Lenox Hill Hospital
Room 720
100 East 77th St.
New York, NY 10021



my old friend afm let me know about this:


"Thanks to the lovely Jessica at New Video, you get to do just that - 
with a contest. Here at Full Body Transplant we are proud to announce 
that the winner of this month's Pioneer-o-thon will receive a code 
good for one free download of "We Jam Econo." The movie shreds the 
senses, puts you in the passenger's seat with Watt for the birth of 
SST records, and soothes the soul with an acoustic Corona.  You don't 
want to miss it.

How do you win? Simple.  Tell us a true story about a time you Did It 
Yourself. When did you create instead of consume? When did you get 
right up in the face of your greatest rock hero and slap the sweat 
from the hand? When did you make your messy little mark on history, 
the way no one else ever could?"

people, I am truly grateful for such kindness:

I go vote now, work bass tonight/tomorrow/nightafter... forever learning w/the bass!
