Despite the soundtrack’s notoriety, this will mark its first legit release on vinyl (there was a South Korean release of “dubious origin”), and they went all out with the presentation. The deluxe package comes in either Clarence-inspired “king gold” vinyl (limited to 297 copies), Alabama-inspired clear with aqua and pink splatter vinyl (limited to 686), or white blood splatter vinyl (limited to 2,000).

Our True Romance Story

Other than the violence and mob mayhem this movie has elements to describe what our true romance felt like…two lonely and unlikely people winding up together, compassion, adventures, Elvis, phone booth sex :). BMF loved Pulp Fiction (BMF!) and from there discovered everything Quentin Tarantino to include True Romance. He calls me up one day and tells me drop what you are doing and go find this movie and watch it. So of course I did. (more…)

People say he was EVEL. Sunday 420 Salute to Jeff Jackson. Twenty-nine weeks have passed since Jeff left the building. I had the extraordinary experience of attending a group gathering with the medium Yvonne O’Brien. It was a first for us and I would highly recommend for anyone who have lost a loved person. It was wonderfully cleansing and brought us as close as possible back to Jeff, even if for just a moment in time.

Yvonne entered the room and brought up Elvis (Jeff’s chosen spirit animal 😝) so I felt the energy was going to be right. It’s hard to describe how someone who has no clue about me or Jeff or what we had been through could sit there and talk about things only he and I could know. It was crazy but she did.

Yvonne said many many things to us as well as to the other dozen or so people in the group about their own lost loved ones. Each story was poignantly wonderful.

She said Jeff was there with another man. And the man made Jeff feel so happy and he was glad to be there with him. The man was happy to see him too. And the man’s name was Dave. He was also there with a dog named Steve. (Dave was Jeff’s dad and Steve was one of our dogs, both sadly gone for quite a while now.) Yvonne talked about how we had rescued Steve from the street.

She said Jeff was upset that he had not been able to speak at the end because he had more he wanted to say to me. But instead he had left notes for me in the pockets of his clothes. 😍 He also wants me to bronze his great shoes and put them on a pedestal. (Ha! I’ll need more medium consultations for this one since he had so many great shoes!)

She said he keeps talking about music and smoothing his hair. She said he has a handsome face and loves his hair. Really l o v e s his hair. She said he has nothing against the Beatles. (All true!)

She said he keeps telling me you are soulmates and that you will never forget him. And that you wrote an epic memoir for him that made him famous. ❤️

She said Jeff is hanging out around one of the doors of our bedroom and that he knows I’ve been sleeping on the wrong side of the bed and wants me to return to my side. (!!!!!!) He wants me to know everything is fine and it’s all ok. And then she turned to Michelle and said he wants you to “take care of my baby”.

Lastly Jeff wants you to make his big photo bigger…his legacy…the one with the white motor gear…like the Elvis jumpsuit. I said well he always wanted to be Evel Knievel. Not sure about this part but maybe it will come to me soon. Love you 57. Thanks for a good day.

Found on a crumpled peice of paper in the deathtruck:

‘If I die, burn me up and carry me around

If MC dies burn her up and carry her around

If JR dies burn him up and carry him around

Mix us up and spread us around.’

Some Thought About Our Life

Mar
27

My life with you, our life together has been and is the best thing ever. Full of true love. That true love has brought us so many great things we have experienced and have yet to experience the many things our love brings to our life. I believe our life is unique compared to others and other lives because of that true love we share. I love you more than anything thing in this world, literally. We have both been through many changes in out lives already trying to reach the stage in life we are in now. We have love, we have the things we both want, we have everything I can think of. Now, that being said I am sure when I say that at this stage in our life a change is needed. Our minds have become trained to doing one thing one way because for one, we do that thing well, two, we have enjoyed it, and three, it has helped us both to live in this monetary world we live in. SO ——

Some random thoughts and ramblings:

There is nothing worse than doing something you don’t like or don’t want to do. I know this from experience and I think you have had this feeling a little bit for some time but recently it has really bore down on you. We cannot continue with this. Our options are limitless as far as I am concerned. All options are possible. All options are achievable. All options will change our life in one way or another. Part of the equation is being able to sort thoughts and formulate these options into realities. This can be a discouraging thing when we are constantly busy doing the things we really don’t want to do but do as part of our trained minds tell us to do….work, work, work, work, work. After a normal days work it is sometimes hard to come up with fresh feelings for something new from simple tiredness of the current job. I know what we must do but it is harder to do when you are currently busy as all fuck. But, I promise you that we will get over that hump and come up with a plan that we will take action on. I know sometimes you feel like I am uninterested in plans you have talked about in the past but I assure you this is not true, though my actions probably made you feel this way to some degree. Every single thing you have talked to me about the possibility of doing I have heard, soaked in, agreed with and felt it was a good idea. My problem I would guess, is that I couldn’t get over the hump of stopping what I was already doing. Thanks to you, I have done well in what I have done and am doing now and that fact made it hard for me to think about stopping it for something else that may or may not work as well as what I have been doing and am doing. Blah blah but my point is that I now feel the same as you do in what we are doing. I know before I harped on the fact that if this hadn’t happened things would be smoother and easier than now but the reality is that if you aren’t happy with what you are doing than that is enough for me to make a change in our life. We both know what we are made of. We both know what we are capable of. We both know we can do anything we choose to do. So, what do we choose to do?……..I will list out some idea’s:

The Pretty Vacant Caffe: This is definitively one of our best ideas. Simple cool coffee shop with a limited but tremendously awesome menu of food that could be done organically or otherwise and be good. With the atmosphere being all the things we like and have already in our possession. Music playing constantly that is great in each song, guests being able to put their ipod playlists on our system (after our ‘cool’ approval of the content of course) with comfy seating. A place a person would look forward to being able to come to just to see us. We would and could be the main attraction. You have lost the feeling of socialization partly I know because we enjoy our social circle of US. I am the same way. But if we both broke out of that mode and got ourselves in the mix of others it would be good for us and it would create a legendary story that people would want to gravitate to. More on this later. We could have a base menu of 2 or 3 simple things and other things that change daily or weekly as a special. Our ’special’ would really be a special not just something we were trying to get rid of or cheaply made. Our special could be an expensive but well worth the price type of thing. IE: Veggie soup made our way, blackened chicken quesadillas, braised short ribs with fire roasted tomato sauce, this list could go on forever. Doing this idea of the Caffe would force and allow me to get back into a creative mode that I have lost in sense just from not flexing that part of my brain for a long time. All these things would and could create a situation for us that would allow us to live well, have fun doing what we do and help heal some sadness within our souls easily over time of doing it. (side note: what domain do we have for prettyvacantcaffe?)

So we know the idea is a killer, but how do we make it happen? A location would be the first step. Little Five, Downtown, a suburb, where would this idea fly? I would say a place like East Atlanta but East Atlanta is going down right now. Little Five would be optimal but could we afford the rent there? The customers at a suburb would depress the whole idea. We want to be able to draw a crowd that drives us. Eclectic and open. We must investigate this physically. Wow a lot of words and I am not even close to be done with the thoughts in my head. More later I must break from typing.

——

I’m sure my typing above may require some editing as I just typing as it comes to my brain without reading it back.

Another idea:
Claims and Collections:

You know what, I was prepared to write book on our thoughts and ideas and I may still do it just for archivial purposes but the bottom line is this: are we willing to go down before we go back up? I am willing to do it. I think you are to. We must grip this thought as a reality and just go forth smartly. I feel like our life is up and will always be up in many degrees’, the only missing link is working the way we want to work and that part may require going down before going up. Life is short baby. I am sorry if I have overly repeated things we arelady have discussed, but I am trying to work it out in my own brain. I am the staller. But I am done with that. Help me help us.

I had a wonderful Sunday here at the Punk Rock House with my Sweet Baby. One task we undertook was cleaning out one of the coolest junk drawers I’ve ever seen. We did lots of cool little things like that Sunday but the best thing we did all day was LOVE….PURE LOVE BABY…and I”m still reelin’ from it.
