Mapes, Andy there [we'd stop in
Mapes. Maggie, Denis , Andy and beer.
listening to a late night radio show (WNBC 66AM) I became
interested in Star Trek again. [Star Trek began to revive
as early as 1972, and at that time we would watch it
as often as possible. In 1976 though, talk began speculate
that maybe the show would return to television, or even
a movie (though I saw Harvard Elison and Walter Koeing
on 'Tomorrow' and they were being less than complimentary
towards the show...) ].
Mike and I went to the Auto Show at Place Boniventure. Bought
a Star Trek book. Later we met Ralph, we all went to see 'Barry
Lyndon'. [after the film I thought
it was boring but beautiful, Ralph that it was Kubrick's best.
The guy in front of us agreed with me]. Saw Maggie,
Guy, Heather and her beau [and talked
to them awhile].
Mike and Peter
a tape in the lounge at Abbott [which
is now lost] and downstairs
[which survives. Ralph, Andy (upstairs), Mike, Bob (and guitar),
Richard and Gilles]. nite- saw 'The Story
of O' with Sue and Max.
Bob and Richard at Bob's (in his room)
Playing Bob's (and a friend's) songs
on guitar. Though they were not playing at all at their best,
this recording captures the feeling of those times. (It is
the first stereo recording I'd done with microphones since
1972 (on Don's machine), the others had been done using headphones
as mics . In the middle we went to the Mapes and
scored Thi weed.
Bob, Ralph, Mike and Gilles
January 19, 1976
to a large party at Steve Waters in Baie d'Urfé. [Rob,
Mich, Ralph?, Mike? went. Steve had removed all the breakables,
but people still managed to pull the stair railing out of the
wall, and spill beer all over the kitchen.
1976 was the last time I ever did mescaline...
