Daily Doodle: Be Positive

Song of the Day: Little Star by The Elegants


Musical Pipe Dream: I’m singing in harmony. We are swaying towards the audience with our left hands forward and back and then turning 180 degrees and swaying towards the audience with our right hands forward. We end the song standing in a line equidistant from each other with our right feet behind our left leg, arms at our sides, palms facing out, and our heads bowed down.

Blurb 1/365: At BART I saw this cardboard box, like a juice box, with the top ripped off. The label read “Tuna Salad” in some sort of serif bubble font in white overlaying a picture of tuna salad. It was raining that day and the box was soaking wet. I 100% regret not taking a photo of that box.

Daily Doodle: Panda Van

Song of the Day: Since I Don’t Have You by The Skyliners


Musical Pipe Dream: I’m wearing a dress with a fitted bodice and puffy skirt. I’m holding either end of the bottom of the skirt and swaying back and forth to the beat while singing harmony. In between breaks in singing, we do side step turns to the left and to the right.

Blurb 1/365: Good night.

Song of the Day: Two People In the World by Little Anthony and the Imperials


Musical Pipe Dream: I’m singing backup harmony while playing the piano. My baby blue suit is fitted and the pant legs each have a big crease down the front. The cuffs end at the middle of my shin and expose my black socks and my shiny black shoes tapping on the piano pedals.

Daily Doodle: Watching Fireworks

Song of the Day: Sh-Boom (Life Could Be a Dream) by The Chords


Musical Pipe Dream: I’m on stage wearing a red satin dress that’s a perfect fit. My hair is curled and pinned to a shoulder-length bob and I’m wearing bright red lipstick and red shoes to match. I’m signing a part of harmony and two stepping in unison with the others. At one point, we halt the two stepping and push our arms out starting from our hands at our sides to a point where we look like an airplane with our palms facing out. Then we draw our arms back down to put our hands on our hips and go back to two stepping.

Blurb 1/365: Ah-HA! I see it now.

Daily Doodle: Gordon Noggen Goes Grocery Shopping

Song of the Day: Rama Lama Ding Dong by The Edsels


Musical Pipe Dream: The saxophonist and I are in the back on a slightly raised part of the stage. I’m playing the drums. We’re looking at each other for timing cues. I’m sweaty and have a towel around the back of my neck and over my shoulders.

Blurb 1/365: If somebody poos and pees on the sidewalk and nobody is around to see it, does it still make a smell? … … Yes. Yes it does.

Daily Doodle: Slurms Looks After All of Us from Above

Song of the Day: Tonite Tonite by The Mello-Kings


Musical Pipe Dream: There are four of us lined up and singing back up. The lead singer is slightly in front of us and stage left. We are all wearing powder blue suits with black lapels and skinny black ties. Our dance steps are alternating stepping one foot over the other and snapping. At the end of the song, we all bow our heads with our right toe behind our left heel and our palms facing the audience.

Blurb 1/365: Some of the best quality sleep is begotten on a couch.
