I am bursting with news today!

His wife, Sister Savitri D will share the honored position with him down Colorado Boulevard, taking care to steer clear of Starbuck’s. Intrigued?

Are you hankering for a taste of Doo Dah now (just like kids eyeing presents under the tree)?? You have two – count ’em! – TWO chances to meet me in person. I will be appearing at two different venues where there will be several bands performing, so you’ll also get double the entertainment!! Here’s the info:


8:30  tonight, I’ll be at the Stardust, 7643 E. Firestone Blvd., Downey, (562) 928-5503. Be sure to check out my friends, Phonic Euphoria.


8:15 p.m. Friday, I’ll be at Mr. T’s Bowl, 5621 1/2 Figueroa, Highland Park, (323) 256-7561. $3 cover. Bands include Andrew’s Bad Stuff, Punk Whore, The Thingz, Rover’s Pinky and See It Through. There will be trivia questions throughout the evening with cool prizes. The show is emceed by Andrew, the notorious Duke of Doo Dah.


 Today, I’d also like to send a shout-out to Roc. He called me up before the auditions tellling me I should just stay home because the crown was his. Last night we spoke on the phone and he said that he still should have won. Hey Roc, when you taunted me, I said “Bring it.” At the auditions, I brought it, oh yeah, it was “broughten,” and, honey, who got the crown?! I suggest that next year, you turn it up to 11 and take what you feel is so rightfully yours! Now get on your knees and worship me like the good royal subject you should be!!
