Fall of Fall 2 en Revue


Fall of Fall 2 was QUITE under-attended last evening. The booking agent’s failure to circulate the beautiful flyer Raenie concocted may relate to such demographic matters. Unrelatedly, the performances were real strong.

I was more in the mood to talk then sing, as it were. Thus each between-song blurb was as long as a song. I talked a lot about a rhetorical modality based on evoking “the old days;” this issue has been of concern to me since various reviewers called the Deke Falcon a memoir, of sorts. Like any Jameson worshipper, I’m nostalgic for the present if I’m nostalgic for anything at all. Anywho, I played an old, discarded Falcon song, among others. Also a tune from the Nashville Sessions, “went to Confession.”

BJ Walker unleashed a whole flurry of solo tunes I’d never heard him belt. It was the sort of nocturnal emission-eliciting fantasy of Bob Weir, Richie Havens and Norman Blake that could start a few communes if placed in the wrong hands. Barry attacked the shit. He also outdid even Tom Heinl for best line of the night; strumming in between verse and chorus of “Deportee,” Barry says, “y’all know this is about Mexicans, right?”

Then Tom Heinl walked in and stole the show. I laughed so hard my face hurt, but that’s par for the course. What blew me away this time was the pipes on the guy. The sound’s always mixed pretty loud for the room at Luckey’s, but as a singer I appreciate it. Anyway, Tom’s voice covered a whole gamut of octaves. Yeah.

Crap/Not Crap Round-Up Topic Results

Buddhism Tie (!?!?)

Haircut from Roomate Not Crap

Democratic Party Crap
As you can see, the Buddhism poll ended up unacceptably inconclusive. You best come out for Fall of Fall vol 3 on 11/5. Only then will we ever get together; only then will we ever get to the bottom of all this.

    Sorry to hear of the sorry attendance. I made some pointed phone-call pleas yesterday (continuing to act in my role as promoter-from-afar) but alas, they fell on deaf ears. Keep ‘cc’ing me on the adverts, and I’ll try to find some sympathetic 541ers to attend.

    After this weekend’s flurry of “‘member the 90s” posts, I’m delving into the stacks to find some old classics. Tortoise’s self-titled album is making everything alright right now.

    old recrods are the new new records.

    peace be with you,


    PS: By the way, college football: not crap.

    PPS: sorry about les mets.

    Let’s have none of that Sunday evening intimate singer/songwriter-early evening out-home before midnight nonsense, people.
    Patrick’s set was beautifully crafted with songs so heavy in lyric and gorgeous in finger-picking prose, we all wanted to cry from the joy of it.

    Barry Walker touched my early childhood country-hippy upbringing profoundly.

    Tom Heinl validated my love of backgammon and reminded us all that “it’s funny because it’s true.

    Crap/not crap results as they pertain to our household:
    Patrick asked me for a haircut.
    We will still vote democrat.
    Nobody here truly understands Buddhism. Let’s all do our research so we will be better prepared to have a strong opinion about somebody else’s religion if the topic comes up again at Fall of Fall V.3

    Kevin: Really? College football? I never woulda thunk it.

    RK: For the record, I don’t do the NFL, and I don’t plan to. But college football is indeed a recently acquired pastime (don’t tell Shayna!). i find it a fine way to spend a saturday afternoon once in a while. sometimes i’m able to rationalize my inexplicable interst as a natural extension of my life-long interest in college basketball. sometimes i explain it as a way to connect with landscapes i miss (it was a saturday tradition of mine to fish the north umpqua, listening to ducks games on the car radio on the return trip). Ultimately, though, I think 4 months of 7-day forecasts like this one might be the best explanation:

    Rain changing to showers. Lows around 38. South winds to 15 mph becoming northwest.

    Rain showers likely. Highs around 47. Southwest winds to around 15 mph. Chance of showers 70 percent.

    Tuesday Night
    Rainy and breezy. Lows around 37. Winds becoming east 15 to 25 mph late. Chance of rain 80 percent.

    Rainy and breezy. Highs around 44. Southeast winds 15 to 25 mph. Chance of rain 90 percent.

    Wednesday Night
    Rain…breezy. Lows around 38. South winds 15 to 25 mph. Chance of rain 100 percent.

    Thursday and Thursday Night
    Rain showers. Highs around 46. Lows around 36.

    Cloudy with a chance of rain showers. Highs around 42.

    Friday Night and Saturday
    Mostly cloudy with a chance of rain showers. Lows around 34. Highs around 40.

    Saturday Night and Sunday
    Rain showers likely. Lows around 32. Highs around 39.

    Sunday Night

    I think I understand. I’m trying really hard, anyway.
