February 9, 2008 -- Saturday afternoon

Parked on Bernal Hill, sitting in the sun on Chicken John's bus waiting while the passengers shoot a movie in the glorious green grass above the road--he's the driver for the day while Chicken John is out of town. The bus runs on coffee grounds.

Reading The Road, by Cormac McCarthy.

He's planning on shooting a movie--an absurdist look at the idea of "the last man on earth," which will include his band-- Sleepytime Gorilla Museum. The band will play at the Great American Hall of February 16th. Here's the band's website.
