August 30, 2005
Tomcat wants to rent an apartment in New York City with some other guys. He called yesterday and said we need to back him up, basically co-sign, on the following: 80 months worth of rent, or $320,000 worth of credit (I’m not making this up), in order to get on the list to look for an apartment! This is just a pre-qualifier. Rents for a four bed-room apartment (split between six guys) is going to run about $5,000 a month. Meanwhile I read in today’s Republic that the famous rock club CBGB’s is delinquent on their rent which is $19,000 a month. That’s a lot of $7 beers.

Started a new painting last night of a Mexican village nestled in twilight, with a big storm coming in over the mountain. On the left, a lone rider, wearing a tattered U.S. flag as a makeshift poncho leans into a strong headwind, as his white-socked pony picks his way down into the valley.

Is it Shane? No, it’s Mickey Free, silly. Same idea, different valley. Prediction: in the new Westerns, the protagonist will be riding north, out of Mexico (The Man With No Name rode south into Old Mexico). Call them Mexican Westerns, but the hero will be coming from another direction and he will speak fluent Spanish. Count on it.

Got a new poll up: Which actor do you think looked most like Doc? Caesar Romero, Dennis Quaid, Jason Robards, Stacy Keach, or Val Kilmer?
