this!
except I usually also report them as spam.
 
I'm pleased to report that in my later years I've become interesting to beautiful young women with large breasts. I base this on the growing frequency with which these hotties add me to their circles. A surprising number of them have advanced degrees (based on, again, their sketchy profile pages here). They've discovered me early in their G+ adventure and haven't had an opportunity to post much. I routinely block these ladies.

What I'm wondering is, are they aware I've done so? I realize they won't see any of my brilliant shares in their stream but eventually they'll wonder, "What happened to that cool old guy?" and search for me. What do they see if they do?

I wonder...
...just what "explosion" tastes like.

(this is a food truck that's often parked in Westlake Park, where I catch the first of the buses home from downtown Seattle.)

a tale of 3 holidays
New Year's Eve, St. Paddy's Day, and Cinco de Mayo. what do they have in common?

bartenders across the land refer to them as "amateur hour" and look forward to them with dread in their hearts. because tons of people who are not normally heavy drinkers descend on the bars somehow feeling honor bound to consume all the alcohol.

with the expected results.

today gets bonus points because it isn't even a holiday, really. this is why many Mexican folks respond with a shrug and a "¿por qué?"

Find the DVD. There was a VHS, it was terrible, pan-and-scan, made a whole bunch of scenes incomprehensible. The DVD (with all the bonus material in particular, and the extended opening) is wonderful.

mobile songwriting
for a while I've been stashing all of the song snippets and random rhymes I come up with in a Linux program called Gjots2. it's basically a simple outliner.

then I went (a lot more) mobile. and Gjots didn't. at all.

yes, I realize I can jot new things down on the tablet (or just on paper), but what about the times I get ideas for an already started tune? or I just want to go through my snippets for inspiration? not to mention how I'd like to "write once, read everywhere" instead of having to constantly transcribe.

Vault 3 to the rescue!

same kind of basic outliner, but the guy has versions for Android, Linux, and Windows.

it was a bit of an extra hairball to get it installed on my Ubuntu box, but the author was very helpful. I'm also having to rebuild my existing outlines (copy & paste to the rescue!) but I got a suitable amount of my snippets file into a test file, saving it to a Dropbox folder, and it opened and edited just fine on the tablet. it even automagically syncs the file back to Dropbox.

I do wish that I could export my Gjots files and import them into Vault 3, but the "export to XML" feature in Gjots seems to be vaporware and I'm not sure that the "import from XML" feature on Vault would understand them anyway.

I'll just be happy it can be done at all.

turns out Vault 3 also has a Mac version.

Evernote is too expensive.

Introduction
I've been a lot of things over the years, from dishwasher to private detective, but busking is my longest-lasting endeavor. I've done acts featuring magic tricks, juggling, balloon animals, guitar, harmonica, kazoo and ukulele.

For the last ten years I've been concentrating on being the Ukulele Ace.

You can often find me at the world famous Pike Place Market in Seattle but I play at all sorts of places.
