Daydreamin'

Northern Calloway is best remembered as David, the affable denizen of Sesame Street, who blew off law school and took over the store when Mr. Hooper died. What many people did not know was Northern had a very tumultuous real life battle with mental illness, where daydreams became nightmares, and periods of make believe often began with assaulting hookers with rebar, and ended naked and bloody in a very tangible state hospital. Enjoy your day.

This is what I've been missing for 2 months: originality. Where else are you going to find something as eccentric as a pick like this. Keep the good times coming.

Jail is the new kindler, gentler treatment for ppl with mental health issues. A kindler, gentler machine gun hand (h/t to Neil Young). You are a smart fellow, how can you increase traffic to your blog without spamming or polluting another blogster's cbox?

I'm fairly certain if I had to work on a kiddie show I'd blow off some steam beating hookers with rebar too.nintu

Welcome back and thanks for both the Sesame Street LP and the link to Ross' tour diary. I'm a sucker for a good tour diary and it didn't disappoint. Scumps!
