Pianist WILLIE DAVIS (accompanist on the last revival of “Bachelor in New Orleans”; collaborator-to-be on Madame Morganza Spillway) sent me this art in Feckbook, with this note:
As for the previous post, Tim is one of my best friends. He lives in Philly, works in NYC 2 days a week at East of Eights bartending. he worked at Lafittes around ’92-94. A great artist. I trust his aesthetics more than anyone I know. Can’t find a pic. Good-looking Irish dude in his late 40’s now. His buddy Stewart lived in the Chelsea Hotel for a while. Here is a piece of his. There are 2 or 3 more on my website in my ‘Art’ page. …We met here in NOLA but both moved to NYC. I mentioned his joke about picking the grapes and sowing the grass as a drag show trick. He is not on FB.
I just like it is all.
I am happy to see, and view your new path. The pure creative spark and expression of the creative mind that you have, is much more powerful entity than the motherfucking social media tit that we all suck at.
I’m guilty of my own addiction, although my ruminations take another form.
Feckbook is pretty vacuous to me, and serves its own outlet.
I miss you and Eric, and count you both as more than casual “friends”. The thought of either of you dropping from a blip on the radar for me to the ether is a terrifying one. But, if it works for you, this can serve as our digital “post office”.
I am still working on the book, albeit sporadically. I, like yourself, should retreat. But, I am so goddamned tired when I get home that writing is the 50 lb mountain gorilla that cuts off my creative.
Things are in the works. Potentially good. And, with any luck, they will eventually involve you.
I love you both, you ol codger.
We’ll talk soon.
(and to paraphrase as you said “straight cock tease”)
