During the Great Folk Music Scare of the 1960's, I told a friend of mine that I had met and played for Lightnin' Hopkins, who was one of the great blues guitar players of that era.


Holy crap, you played for Lightnin' Hopkins? Someday I'm going to have to buy you drinks. Plus I figure you for a Von Ronk type of guy with the Folk Music Scare phrase.

On the topic, last year when we were traveling the news was showing a story about the worst tourists. I can't remember if it was hostel workers that were surveyed so it might not have been the same one, but the ranking went Brits first, then Germans. Americans came out fourth or fifth which caused us to breathe a sigh of relief.


Ugh! Foreigners in American hostels are the worst... Wretched folk, from my experience. Every single bloody last one of them! (except the ones that were not...)

I'm not sure what she was wearing but clearly this incident gives credence to the opposite approach.


For the record, she was wearing some pretty hot "burner" wear. I was digging it, at least....

I'm certain she didn't mean anything negative about it. She was probably taking those things home for herself and thought she'd give it to someone else.

If this sort of thing bothers you, you might want to read the opening of Harlan Ellison's "New York Review of Bird" which takes his nom de plume (Cordwainer Bird) and makes him an action hero nephew to The Shadow!
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"

HERNAN, not heman (although he is quite a stud, ladies. But I'm pretty sure he's married...)

I swear the "r" and the "n" ran together! I even looked up at "hernan's" avatar and it looked like "heman" there too!
