Hey Everybody! Here it is - the OFFICIAL BUS SHOT! This means we’re for real, dudes and dudettes! This was a couple of days ago WAY EARLY in the morning just before we left Nijmegen headed for Belgium.
“Mark of the Mole” original scratchboard drawings by Pore Know Graphics (Aka Pornographics, Homer Flynn), inhouse designer of all the early The Residents album coverart. Pitty his original works are priced so highly due to the band reference!
Hey Everybody! Check it out! I was in that show!
And before we were in Nijmegen, we were in Brussels, where we saw Mush-Room, this cool dance piece that Chuck did the music for. It was done by the NEED Company and they were super nice to us. Okay, I know I already have one picture like this on the blog, but I SHOT THIS ONE MYSELF! So it’s special.
Here’s a picture of our hotel in Nijmegen, BUT DON’T COME, OKAY! Besides, we’re practically out of here. I think they put us in the Hotel Courage, because The Residents are so brave and stouthearted and stuff since we’ve never sold out and all, but to tell you the truth, nobody ever made us a decent offer.
This is this weird cresty-shield thing that you see all over Nijmegen. Believe it or not, they actually call it a weapon, which sounds weird to me since you’d have to drop the goddam thing on someone to do any damage, but HEY! I’m not an expert in these things. I’m showing it to kind of make it official so you will know for sure that we’ve been here.
Hey Everybody! I’m back! Whew - it’s about time. So now we’re in Nijmegen, Holland, where we’re rehearsing for the EURO TOUR! That’s the one where we collect all our fees in Euros, which is like dollars EXCEPT WAY BETTER!. Anyway, we’ve been here for several days rehearsing, but now we’re done and we head off to BELGIUM tomorrow for the first show. All you BELGIUM FOLK should come!
My Residents tattoo.
More tattoos! Way cool, dude!
Hey Everybody! It’s almost time for the European tour! I have to go the dentist before I can leave and he asked me to bring in this weird casting that he made of my teeth a few years ago, so I had to find it my basement. Here’s the video. Meanwhile, I’ll be seeing you cool Euro folks REAL SOON! WA-HOO!
I’ve been listening to The Residents since I was a kid and you’ve shaped and mutated my tastes ever since.
I figured that makes me an official product of yours so I decided to brand myself so no one will forget it!
See you in London!
Hey Maddie! That is ONE COOL TATTOO! Good for you! I should probably get one myself - RIGHT ON TOP OF MY HEAD! Thanks. R
