DicksnJanes #649: Lowell Celebrates Kerouac 2017

David Amran, Brian Hassett, Sky Chrysti Lyons
The Scarborough Dude drives Sal to Lowell MA to join in the fun at Lowell Celebrates Kerouac.

Shownotes #649
0:00-0:30: Dicksnjanes intro: That’s Kerouac laughing, and Dylan asking if it’s rolling
0:30-12:00: SD records a preamble to explain & apologize in advance for what follows, shares a apt Kerouac quote, warns listeners it may be a long ride, thanks new friends, claims Lowell was a joyful blessed breakthrough leading to further adventures
12:00-18:30: Recording from a rest stop en route to Lowell, thanks his iPhone maps navigator, praises dear Kingston friends Alvin & Braite, asks himself when he can start to let go of his stories, his past
18:30-21:45: Arrives in Lowell, breathless, excited, navigates his way to the bar, parks Sal at The Old Worthen
21:45-24:00: Still stunned at being in Lowell, but needs some food & a nap
24:00-25:45: Boasts of getting high within 20 minutes of arrival in town, but feeling shaken, holy fuck! gotta lie down
25:45-27:45: Paranoia creeps in, mind fucked, still hungry, holy molly
27:45-40:15: Lying in Sal, stoned, trying to get head back to normal, rambling on in all directions, recalling special friends and places, defends the dicksnjanes podcast as if under attack, then overlays David Amran live concert in post production to offset disjointed thoughts
40:15-43:10: Brainfart struggle between nice guy/not nice guy negativity conflict needing sorting out; if truly grateful now no need to keep the past, a cane might help
43:10-46:10: Half-hearted apology to John Leschinksi for missing Podcamp Toronto Campfire, proud to record a podcast in Lowell even if questionable quality. Meant to say fuck off if you don’t like it but didn’t
46:10-51:20: Recording from street, between bars, talking about joining the Pranksters table at the Old Worther, mistakenly calls Bill Walsh’s accent New York instead of Boston but loved his Kerouac reading in Reality Alley. Loses iPhone but still feeling blessed, holy shit!
51:20-54:10: Cool beat live recording from Cappy’s Copper Kettle
54:10-56:40: Late night recording from Reality Alley, gotta make this intimate gathering an annual event
56:40-1:01:30: Bedtime recording from Sal; leftover turkey sandwich joy, appreciation for Dan Bacon’s personal poetry reading, wanna bring Kerouac fan friends here
