The Big Con

 
The clip-joints are filled every night with marks who crave the tat, said one con man. If you gave one of  them an even break it would spoil his evening.

Strangers in a Car

 
You don't know where you're goin'
You don't know what you're doin'
Hell it might be the highway to heaven
And it might be the road to ruin
But this is a song
For strangers in a car
Baby maybe that's all
We really are
Strangers in a Car
(Cohn)
Marc Cohn

More Like Ornaments


              There's nothing fragile about this one. That ain't a fragile nose or mouth or chin, and yet it's female, more female than them fragile-pretty types who look more like ornaments than girls.

People in Trouble

 
      Film Noir has a mood that everybody can feel. It's people in trouble, at night, with a little bit of wind, and the right kind of music. It's a beautiful thing.

They Got Tight ......



                  ........While the drummer and the bass fiddler made shock waves on the roof Bolling raised his voice and began to belt it out. About how he followed her up and down and around, and underground, up Russian Hill and Nob Hill and Telegraph Hill and across the Bay Bridge and back by way of the Oakland ferry. So he found the Sphinx on Market Street cadging drinks and they got tight and they danced on the golden asphalt of delight.
