Krist accordion Tik Tok.

The presidential run is moving along. We're having a nominating convention on May 29. If you joined the Cascade Party HumHub, there is more information there. I write about the situation here. The state is considering changing the rules which require a minior party to run a presidential ticket to be recognized as a bona fide party. In the meantime, we are following the current rules and organizing presidential nominating conventions. I started a new band with which will play concerts around the state to attract registered voters to sign our nominating petitions (More later, we have our second practice session in a few days). You don't have to vote the Novoselić / Carroll ticket in November if you sign the nominating petition. We plan on doing everything we can to not be on the November ballot.

We started a Tik Tok for Cascade Party. The ruling War Machine hates Tik Tok, so it seems like the place to be. We are also on X. The Warfare State hates them too.

Presidential Plate.

More on this soon — I might be running for President of the United States, but in Washington State only. It's sounds crazy as it's actually part of the rules if you want to start a new political party in the state. Read about it here, how we're trying to get the state to change this rule.

Sorry to hear about Steve Albini and condolences to the family. Am shocked. Steve’s relation to the Nirvana story is part of the legend, so I will try to make some personal recollections. Steve, was a notorious personality in the underground music scene of the 1980s. He was a heavy. Steve made hard music which reflected his persona. He said things at the time that he later explained with contrition. Steve studied journalism and spoke highly to me of Mike Royko. After this conversation I thought of Steve as a journalist, or gave him that kind of weight. He and I did not agree on some political things, nevertheless, we did not let that affect our relationship. Living with Steve for the two weeks we recorded In Utero, I got to see his soft side. There was an adolescent aspect, harmless fun loving that I appreciated. All the same, the weighty Steve was not too far away. Anytime I hear the snare drum on Pixies Surfer Rosa, I will remember Steve. Heavy indeed.

Darka and I at Coachella 2018. I played accordion with Devendra Banhart and the band! He even paid me, which I did not expect!!! I am a longtime fan and am happy I got to play with he and the fellows.

Mark and Krist

Pickerel in Ellensburg today. I brought my bass and we jammed. We were discussing the Shocking Blue and their excellent music. We jammed on "Love Buzz"! I realized I had not played that song in over 30 years!!! It was a little emotional. Mark and I locked right in, and are planning on playing together more.

Big anniversary today. 30 years since Kurt left us. I can't say enough how much this person has impacted my life, and how much he means to me. Kurt could be so kind and loving. His intensity manifested in artistic expression. Billions of people connect. I am so grateful to be part of this. Today I remember everything about Kurt Cobain. (23mb video.)
