[this is in reference to the comprehensive Blondie gig list which Barry is working on] jeez... good fucking luck with this...theres no way, i think you should somehow indicate that this is a partial list... the first actual blondie gig was at a place called monty pythons with the miamis, a later gig there was attended by some rich up towners who hired us to play a private party... various private partys and semi public events... thee are just too many gigs and partial gigs to even get close to listing for ex the stilletos opened for the dolls someplace in midtown... 82 club was played many times... gigs at whites pub where debbie tended bar near wall street... blondie did the music for ingrassias rendition of the first act of jackie curtis' vain victory at some loft spce in lower manhattan (clem, leaving a taxi for this event, opened the cab door in front of an oncoming car which nearly tore it off, told cops his name was joe dellasandro) gig with the dictators at the cuando gym on houston street... very famous jam in seattle with gary v. me and clem backing up iggy in the local 'punk house' after the idiot tour show there... first out of town gig was in phila.... many gigs in boston early on... with john cale at 'my fathers place' on long island, many gigs there ( there we were recorded by the FBI discussing illicit things with some promoter that they were after, they later interviewed us at our lawyers office).... at the mabuhay gardens in san fran the first time we played there the dressing room walls were pristine white, we did THE VERY FIRST BITS OF GRAFFITI stuff about ronnie toast etc, on various returns not only were the walls dense with writing but in places they were actually worn away from layers of hacking and ink... played on some stupid roller derby tv show in LA.... at one point played cbgb's every weekend for seven months... played various forgettable clubs in new jersey malls... any way etc etc you can see what you're up against here... i didnt go over the whole list and this is just what comes to mind now , im sure im forgetting a lot of things i looked at the list and see some of the things i mention here... i guess the biggest problem is that we played sooo many times at cb's and max's and other places around nyc, im sure we played close to a hundred gigs at cb's and max's c

the fifty greatest lists of 2003! we go to europe for two weeks to do promo, tv in various european markets, maybe i'll see some of you all... Akira is really a great amazing little creature and im sorry too miss time of her as we are getting along great, she really is alert and adventurous, likes to go out and see stuff, we went to a party at bob gruens, she was fascinated by a lot of people in one place beyond that what? this that,... ive seen heard people take the view that the government, powers that be, are 'too stupid' to really do any of the insidious things that are suspected of them, it... bush is a clever decoy, his dumbness is certainly not indicative of the clever double think that is employed by those behind the throne... a good example: i just saw an article in the sunday times about a showing of the "Battle of Algiers" at the pentagon, this is a heavy anti war film about the french occupation of Algeria and all the underhanded methods, torture intimidation, coercion etc that were used to try and break the back of the Algerian national liberation front... even though the french won the battle of the films title, were successful in destroying the guerilla movement in the capitol city of Algiers they ultimately 'lost' the war and left the country...well its a simple point just dont underestimate these fuckers ( the times piece is easy to read put Battle of Algiers into GOOGLE, its one of the first things to come up) i see the site here is getting more elaborate, barry's got a thing going that has old memorabilia and junk, i've got tons of this stuff, just have to get the scanner going... what else, not too much back soon chris
