Things are a bit intense. I'm becoming relatively obsessed with Proposition 8, which is not the least about marriage but simply a bid to write discrimination into the California constitution. Backed to a huge extent by the Mormons, a group who itself was pretty persecuted 100 years back. Wouldn't you think those fuckers would be a bit more compassionate?
But I really need a break. It would be perfect to take a road trip for the weekend, just 48 hours away. What better way than a cool motor home, specially decorated and staffed by Bill Uechi (bass), Eric Zamora (saxophone), José Castellaños (trumpet) Brian "T-Bone Willy" Williams (trombone), and drummer Marc Harismendy.
Throw in kicky vocalist Monique Powell, and you've got the third- wave ska-punk band "Save Ferris". Which is better than "Save Marriage". Much better.
