It was an interesting moment. We were invited to a Jay Adams photo gallery opening in Venice- and I thought it would be a great to bring the boys. They could each select a photograph to hang in their rooms (Hezron is currently putting together his very own man cave; separating rooms from his brother). In this picture: The kid flashing devil horns is Jay's boy Seven with his girlfriend beside him, Michelle Rodriguez is hanging with us, as well as my youngest son Izzy who flashes a Venice V; and Hezron in front seemingly cool amongst the ruff tuff Venice Originals. I did not figure on the heavy fragrances that were wafting in the air. It was too much for the young ins' so we walked around and left soon after. It did begin discussions on the invent of the sport of skateboarding, and also what it was we were exactly smelling. I love listening to little kids imparting their worldly knowledge."That was not marijuana". "Yes it was"... Should I jump in here?

When I was a little boy I would run errands for my father around NYC. He entrusted me to walk with gems and precious metals up and down the gold district- which is W 47th Street; right near Times Square. The United Nations is also right there. I got a thrill knowing that there was valuables in my pockets; passing all the grown ups who would have died to take my gems away from me. Yes sometimes I had diamonds on me that needed to be set into gold rings... Yes the area around Times Square always gave me a thrill, but the CBGB Festival which was set up right on the street was perhaps the greatest thrill of my life. It was a homecoming- the street was shut down filled with people as far as the eye could see and we were performing. I couldn't resist falling into the mass of native New Yorkers, my long lost family; and letting them carry me away.
