Yea, Phillip i bought Something Else By The Kinks at Woolworths on Market St. years ago. Longs in Oakland is kind of like Woolworths was with everything under the sun in it. I used to work at Whole Earth Access on Bayshore ave. and they had everything too. Stores like that are always fun. I guess thats why dollar stores are all over the place. Fun to just see the variety.

Cool Joyce. I never drive to Berkley or anywhere when i'm not working, don't have a car. But i drive a taxi when i'm working so that's enough driving for me.

Dear Joyce
Er, I'm a bit too shy to put my photo up there, don't consider myself to be photogenic!

Dear Bernard:
i completely understand! believe it or not, I am also SHY (really), and ALSO (take horrible pics, usually), but i have been working on trying to put myself out there a bit more, get out of my box, stretch my comfort level, and face my fears, so that's why i have it there! I do get bored with it fairly quickly though (i am an aquarius, after all...the attention span of a grape, and constantly becoming bored, or changing my mind, excepting Libras, who are even worse! --btw, no offense to either "sign", those of you fellow aquarians or compatible libras out there!). What i did to remedy both the fact that i usually take awful pics, AND that i am always "changing", I took about 200 pics (slight exaduration (sp...sorry), but not much of one!), and deleted the really really horrible ones (more than you think!), and kept the "all right" and "good" ones, and then I just change them out, when i get bored, cross my fingers, and "face my fears"! It's worked out pretty good, so far! I highly recommend you try the same! It's never a good thing to be scared, of anything!! Remember, you heard it here, from me, first!
love,
joyce

Keep Tahoe Blue ! So, Phillip have fun at the Regency. Tommys Joint is nearby and still the same as it always was. Did you go to shows at the Regency Ballroom in the sixties? The poster on my profile is an old sixties Regency Ballroom show. The city and Haight st. is pretty upscale. Less working class more single professionals. Still lots of crackheads and bums but lots of money here now. Lots of great reviews. I know Dicks Picks but not Daves pics.

Joyce, your profile pic. is like Liz Phairs twin sister. Nice book reviews.

p.s., oh, yeah! I know who you mean now! the "f and run" chick! (sorry, all....that's the name of the song!) she has "blonder" hair than mine (mine is light brown, but just lightens a lot in the sun), but then again, she looks like she bleaches hers blonde (or "blonder"), and i don't, but thanks!

Yea, her breakthrough was the only one i own Exile in Guyville. A reimagining of Exile on Mainstreet by the Stones in her own way. Pretty cool. But she became kind of a sexy pop singer real quick. Doesn't hold up so well today unlike a lot of 90's stuff to me.

Anthony/Phillip re: Berkeley stores:
Ah, what a great spot that once was for music & books!!! I was there a lot in the mid--late 70's while all my chums were at UCB & early 80's while my brother was there. I spent a summer there (77) living on North Side, just a couple of blocks from Rather Ripped Records, which was just a fantastic store.

For new books, you could not beat Cody's, and for used books, just a few doors down Telegraph, the incredible Moe's Bookstore. I heard Cody's had closed, and that made me feel pretty sad, I must say. Is Moe's still around???

LA is almost without bookstores now. Nearly every Borders and Barnes&Noble has closed. There is still the Bookstar in Studio City, Vroman's in Pasadena, Book Soup in Hollywood, but not much else. In the old Borders/B&N stores they have CVS stores, or TJ Maxx, crap like that. It is truly pathetic.

Whenever I try to go to Amoeba in Hollywood it is impossible to park!!! Couldn't get in the last 3 times I tried.

Joyce says:
Dear Harvey:
no, Moe's is also closed....it is a shame....
as far as the B & N and Border's, same (in Northern California) in that regard, as there (in Southern CA)...truly a tragedy, as other than music and books, what else is there?
love,
joyce

S.C.--- Thanks for the nice sentiments about us Yanks loving the bleedin' Kinks! I think we all pretty much fell in line when the Fabs hit in '64 over here and a seemingly endless stream of amazingly incredible UK bands followed and never really stopped! Oh, we got it all right!!! You might want to check out a book called "I'm With the Band" by Pamela Des Barres, a RnR memoir told from the perspective of a girl from the San Fernando Valley who became a groupie during the mid-60's Sunset Strip scene, and then continued her dancin' days over in London in the 70's for a while. You'll get a great feel for the excitement that the music caused over here, plus other titillating tid-bits. GSTK indeed!!!

Lady Joyce--

Sorry to hear about Moe's going down,too....Whenever I was in Berkeley, I'd spend a few hours in Cody's, then a few more in Moe's, and then I'd take my newly-found treasures over to Cafe Med and spend a few more hours grazing through them, totally buzzed on those giant latte's they served. Such fond memories of much more easeful times (if easeful is a word--and if not, it should be!).

I agree that music & books rule, but I guess I also love guitar stores and museums and theaters that screen old movies. Nothing like a bookstore, though, for milling about, receiving inspiration, and tossing off the mad pace of the world.....Without it, life is just a series of coal mines in which to dig....sigh....

PS-- The Liz Phair comparison is definitely meant to be a compliment, though I'd say it's her who should be flattered to be likened to you :)

Joyce says:
Dear Harvey:
yes, i know all of the establishments you have listed here, and have spent time in all, most especially the first 2! Cafe Med is still there though, so that's good, right? I think (but i am not positive) that it MAY have changed names (maybe not though...haven't really looked lately), but it is still there, and still the same.
yes, i would have to also add "guitar stores", "museums", and "theaters", but the last 2 to a slightly lessor extent than the first, to be perfectly honest....
re: the Liz Phair comment....thanks so much! she is (probably) WAY younger though....just guessing...but thanks just the same!
love,
joyce

Greenalishi says:
So, you bring up guitar stores---gotta mention the famous Fatdog in Berkley. He went against the grain and didn't price his instruments at trending costs or sell to collectors. He said his philosophy is that instruments should be played not on a wall or an investment. Great guy , great store.

I'll say it again, total compliment in any way Joyce.

Still have Green Apple books going strong on Clement St.. But Amazon killed a lot of the book and other markets. Some things need to be touched. Can't buy a guitar online. Gotta play it. I love Amazon and it's formula works for books but there is nothing like a great bookstore or music store as an interesting sensory experience.

In reply to an earlier post on May 19, 2012, 12:36:44 AM PDT
Joyce--Looks like Moe's is alive & well, at least on line! I just checked it out and looks pretty jumpin'!

Anthony--I have to admit that Amazon provides the "bookstore" experience for me about 98% of the time these days, and even 85% of the time when stores were still open here. Usually, one can find books much less expensively on Amazon, even used books, and even with the no-sales-tax v. added shipping equation. I mean, once you figure in the gas + driving time element, there is no comparison. Things I spent years browsing around for, in multiple cities, and NEVER found, I would find in 45 seconds on Amazon. It's just incredible. Still, as we are saying, nothing like loafing about in a bookstore....especially on a rainy day, eh Joyce?

I agree on guitars--gotta touch 'em, hold 'em, vibrate with 'em. I have bought maybe 5 or 6 guitars on line, and have kept only one, my '65 Lennon Epiphone Casino. All the others were quite nice but have since been moved along. Most, had I picked them up in a store, I would have liked, but not purchased. Learned my lesson now :)

Yea, Harvey, i still am able to balance my appetite for music. Between Amazon and the many stores around me. It's really easy to find stuff on the internet but i still go to Ameoba and Rasputins frequenty. Specific stuff books ect... can be found in Amazons formula so easily.
