I got mugged last night


Walking home these kids came up behind me and knocked me down. At least one had a pipe.
I pulled my knife and they ran off then I ran several blocks to get to a better lit street.

Just 90 seconds prior to this I turned down a cab ride because I like to walk at night, especially after I've been drinking.

It took forever to get stapled up at the hospital but thats the way it goes.

monthly post

I should at least have a monthly post. That wouldn't be so bad.

A guy I worked with a few years ago called me yesterday and sort of offered me a job that sounds interesting. In Buffalo.

Its still too early to tell whats going on but the idea of moving to Buffalo has me "shitting my load" as my Karnatakan friend would say.

Anyways, picture width test:

I am Jim Amchower

Hola Amigos, its been a while since I rapped at ya!


comparing the price of various nuts at local dry goods shop:

impromptu jam-off at Buffalo Thursday at/in The Square on 02June:



These guys were jamming/dancing/air-bassing at the north/house-right end of the stage.
They were pretty into it and would pose out to the part of the crowd that was yelling the loudest.

The hula girl had on uggs and/or some other brand of furry boot and it seemed to me that it was one of the nastiest displays possible.
To her tribute, a poem:
in the rainy drizzle, grimy with sweat, twirling some horrible hoop. Stank feet, thighs. Jam out with your clam out.

I saw this band that was a bunch of music school kids.
They had Four [4] trombones and their bass was a sousaphone.
If someone had described this to me I don't think I would have been into them but it was actually awesome.
They opened with a spinal tap song and I knew it was the real deal

I danced like James Brown. I tried to buy them all drinks but the bartender wouldn't take any money and ended up giving me drinks the rest of the night until well past closing time.

It was magical

I was in Washington DC to see the Pogues this week and on the drive back home I stopped in Centralia, PA

Centralia is was a coal town in the PA mountains. One of the coal seams caught fire and has burning ever since. According to the internet, nobody really cared too much untill a kid fell in a sinkhole in his backyard and somebody threw a thermometer into the underground tanks at the gas station and it was 180+°

Anyways reading the Wikipedia article is probably better than driving to that damn place.
I didn't really see any smoke or sinkholes or zombies. Instead, there was a scheisser-lload of trash and junk. The place was a lot smaller than I expected. In fact it was less deserted than I thought: people were driving through to get to their other tiny mountain towns.

To get an idea of the size: An area bounded by Bryant, Richmond, Allen & Main Sts in buffalo
