Good Morning Homo Sapiens,
Keep all of this to yourself. shhhhhh.
I thought it was going to be a lot of work - putting a band together, and it is. But, it’s also beginning to be a whole lot of fun. Except of our brief encounter with the “IGUANA OF DEATH”, the trip last week to GroovyLand South was a resounding success - a needed recharge of our creative batteries. Let me catch you up...
As much as I like the idea of doing a solo act - I have realized that I can never obtain the sound I want live - or even in the studio, by myself. Even by using the electronic hoosetfloosits available today and trimming down the arrangements. Close, but no "Victory Cigar”. Since I can’t do it by myself anyway (play gigs} I thought it would be nice to have my son Donovan not only drive and help me with the equipment, but also to have him play up on stage with me. TA DA! The band KING! was born. We still needed more and decided to keep it lightweight - a four piece band with one extra man for to drive and help with load-in and set-up. Five mouths to feed. Everyone’s job is irreplaceable. If we can’t make enough money to support this setup - we just won’t play the gig.
Why all the hush-hush? Why the kid with the alien blue eyes? It’s all because I’ve decided to start sending cryptic messages to the Bozo’s in the Band (and I mean that in a loving way). I can’t call them boys in the band, since one them is an anti-boy (girl), and it sounds dumb anyway.

I have the utmost respect for clowns - always have. If it weren’t for clowns we wouldn’t even have the name Bozo. And I , for one , do not want to live in a world with out any Bozos. So, Demian, lets pick that Bozo this week or ASAP - pop a nose on her face and call her... Edwardo will be skating at the Tower one night this week - you’ll be singing the low notes with your fingers.
And, I still LOVE clowns, even though it’s a clown named Jay who will also come by one day this week to learn what he needs to know to become a KING in GroovyLand. He’ll come by with two assault rifles and a microphone - where’s at? No drummers drumming but definitely a partridge in a pear tree. I’ll leave a coded message with my new SECRET assistant regarding the time. Throw down and use your words when you get an eye full this afternoon

WHAT EVERY KING! NEEDS TO KNOW
Why James DeFranco? Because he is a good actor - good looking - and rich, but that alone wasn’t enough to land a position with KING! He even tried to bribe us with trips to Mexico, tequila and back rubs. We were not swayed. Donovan and I told him straight out the if he wasn’t willing to learn about GroovyLand and the whole make-believe world of our’s, he could take his Pretty Boy Hollywoody butt back to the left coast. We are as serious as Hee Haw - Chainsaw - Mardi-Gras. We mean business.
Although, I could use a back rub.
GroovyLand is where we are and where we want to be at the same time. It’s heaven, but you don’t have to die to go there. It’s all of our collective imaginations. GroovyLands are all over the world and in your own back yard. It’s a state of being and mind. It is both an idea and the ideal.

If everybody’s living in GroovyLand
who’s gonna take me to get my pills
It don’t matter - cause I won’t need no pills
When I move on down

That’s all I can tell you right now - when it is time for you to know - then you will know.

This was to be the part where I say that none of the above is real and that it is just ravings of a middle aged man who’s brain done got broken. But, after reading it again, it’s all pretty much true. All but the part about clowns. They scare the bejeebies out of me. Except for hobo clowns like Red Skelton.
Hobo clowns are cool they are the only clowns allowed in GroovyLand. Not really. Why, because there are no doors in GroovyLand. Not shut ones that is. Everyone is welcome because even scary clowns turn cool when they live in GroovyLand. It’s not the people that make GroovyLand so cool - it’s GroovyLand that makes everyone who lives there uber cool. Simple.
I’m entering a writing contest - the winning entry will be read on the radio of TV or Youtube...whatever - here’s more info http://www.ttbook.org/3-minute-future
I’ll be using this blog as the place I write it. It has to be science fiction. It sounds like a challenge. Wish me luck.
Thanks for being on the show √√√
just say yes!
meet Andy Ward King, a professional musician and artist until a diagnosis of parkinons dsease at age 49 forced him into an early retirement., he now uses his music, his art along with the whimsical world he has created in this blog as therapy to ( as he puts it ) outsmart his brain and make the daily battles with parkinson’s a little bit easier, to give him that all important reason to get up on the morning, to make his life worth living. Andy has learned how to say NO to gving up \ NO to depression and apathy \ NO to following willingly the road of decline that stretches before him. he learned that to say no to all of these things all one has to do is say yes. Andy has learned to just say YES to life/\\
