“Oh, sweet mystery of life…at last I’ve found you!”
Fun Muff Fact #7564:
My One True Love — the consistently brilliant and visionary Gregory Babior– was the producer and engineer on this early Nirvana recording…which was later included on their 2004 box set, “With The Lights Out.”
My boy is one BOSS MOTHERFUCKIN’ GENIE.
Sometimes…you just gotta fucking CANNONBALL IT, baby.
Here is yet another astonishing entry in my and Gregory’s weekend of witnessing GENIUS PERFORMERS:
Me canoodling with the BRILLIANT Miss Dina Martina.
PUDDLES IS FUCKING GOD.
That is all.
Actually, early this morning.
Two broads on a LONG WALK and a LONG TALK.
Sashaying Santa Monica Boulevard at 1:30 in the morning with their DARLINGEST Darlings, swapping secrets and taking communion together — after having a RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE at The Troubadour.
WITH A GOTTDAMNED CLOWN.
Life in Los Angeles?
She is BEAUTIFUL.
My One True Love.
And in the end, when all is said and done, there remains only this:
FATTIE LIKES FLAVOR.
Listen, Mein Poppets, I don’t give a shit if your friends are the most SPARKLING, ERUDITE bastards on the planet — if you never had the profound pleasure, privilege, and delight of having a one-on-one conversation with the brilliant Taylor Negron…then trust me, YOU AIN’T NEVER HAD A CONVERSATION.
When it came to the RIVETING CHATTER, he would cock his head to one side, purse his lips, activate the tractor beam in his IMPOSSIBLY BLUE eyes, extend his hand, beguile you to him, face you down like an intellectual Apache dancer, snap his expert storytelling talons, reach around, clasp his past around your reptilian brain, and then, simply, ENCHANT YOU, LOVE YOU, and OWN YOU.
I was lucky enough in this life to have occasionally been his momentary dancing partner, spun giddy by his stories and wisdom, gazing amazed at the intoxicating, nurturing light he radiated outward always, and, for those unforgettable five minutes, ten minutes, an hour…be the only other person on the goddamned planet.
That he and his radiance are no longer here — making us laugh, raising the stakes, lighting our way — is UNIMAGINABLE.
