February 14, 2006
I've got a new laptop computer and it's state of the art, but I feel like a fish out of water (finger mouse, among other maddening aspects). But I'm going to be on the road quite a bit this summer and wanted the ability to blog from the road. So I'm back down on my knees crawling again, and I can't access many of my fingertip tricks (like cutting and pasting Mark's and Alan's quotes below, so I did their quotes from memory. Sorry guys).

I'm taking my main girlfriend to see Jessi Colter tonight at the Carefree Opera House. She's taking me to Saba's after work to buy some comfortable Wrangler's. Ain't love grand?

Paul Hutton sent me a cool Billy the Kid comic and a bubblegum card on Tiburcio Vasquez. The Billy comic is called "Billy the Kid's Old Timey Oddities" by Eric Powell and Kyle Hotz. Excellent artwork. Cool stuff.

Tony Casanova and Joey Dillon came by with their new DVD "Dillon" which features Joey's incredible gun handling tricks. We watched it on my new computer. Now that was quite bitchin'. Crisp and clear on a laptop! I told them we should do a piece in the magazine taking apart the legendary cup-gun spinning scene from "Tombstone" and show step by step how each spin of the gun and the cup was done. Joey says it's the number one question he gets at shows. I think we'll do it.
