Who Knew?

It had been decided that I would play Brisbane but as we all stood in the venue at soundcheck, I didn’t feel in my soul that I was the right choice. Santa was asked to step up. She gave me a tilt of her head, a gesture I found immensely telling. In this gesture was the present and the future. By serving the whole she would sacrifice playing Sydney. We all knew it! Do the numbers.
Pip of all people, voiced, “Let me do this Santa, I know what playing Sydney means to you.”
“Yes Pipster, but do you know what playing Brisbane means to me?” And with that she was off.
Pip hugged me and said, “Jesus Clyde you realize that Santa’s handed you the Opera House?”
I smiled, “She has hasn’t she… In this second, old friend, I have fallen in love with that compassionate tart.”
Pip actually gave me a husky grin, “In this moment old friend, I’d almost fight you for her.”
For me, leaving Sydney is almost like saying goodbye to a special friend, but we have to move on. I know that there are other places to experience on this tour. Still, I want to highly recommend Sydney as a place to spend some time if you just need a change in your life, but still want to be in a city. To all the friends that I made while I was there, you are treasured.

Whomever plays in NC will be just wonderful... i thought i might have my secret wishes but it isn't important. i will listen, learn, journey with and enjoy either of the girls. so long as they decide for themselves - betwixt and between - that is what matters. Onward with all the jazz, Clyde... and with the discovery. Sydney sounds wonderful.

happyleighme could not have said it any better. She is a fellow North Carolinian and a true fan. I wanted to wish you a happy RAINN day. You before any of the other dolls. I know it sounds corny, but I baked 200 chocolate chip cookies and sold them to the teachers at my alma mater. Now I have a drop in the bucket for our favorite charity! Look for the donation at the North Carolina show (if you show). I will work on more drops for the very cool bucket!!!!! In honour of the Silent, I remain true. Love, Lilyscloak (Ellen)

About Clyde
All works of art start as potential. Similarly, all relationships start as potential. When I meet a person I try and see not their mask, with it’s defenses, but what’s underneath. I get accused of refusing to acknowledge who a person is choosing to be right now. When that person is arrogant or rude or selfish then my friends say, "Clyde!!!!!! THIS is what this LOSER is about." But I say, "Hold on people, this is only what this person THINKS they are about." So this so called Loser person is confused. But if no one sees their potential then they may not ever see it themselves and that would be tragic.

Bonsoir Clyde

Que vous sur bande avez regardé beau enregistrer
aujourd'hui. Il faisait beau de vous voir.

J'ai vu Spoony et ai voulu aller parole salut mais vous étiez prêt pour avancer.

Je l'ai rencontré à l'objet exposé de l'art du Kat dans le lac argenté il y a quelques années.

J'ai joué le rebondissement vers le haut de PCH comme le positionnement du soleil. :-)

Bells Pour Elle

Is this a translation?

Good evening Clyde

Where you on band looked at beautiful to record today.
( You were beautiful to look at while you recorded today.) Or, (Just for the record, you were beautiful with your band today.)

It was nice out to see you.
(It was nice to see you out.)

I saw Spoony and wanted to go word good day but you were ready to advance.
(I saw Spoony and wanted to wish s/he a good day but you were ready to go.)

I met it at the exposed object of the art of the Kat in the silver-plated lake some years ago.

( I made the acquaintance through Kat while being exposed to the art in the silver plated lake some years ago.)

Over all, none of my business - and this was probably uncooth to pry. I'll delete this later.

Hi Clyde!

A big hug from the boy with the two black eyes in the front row of your last Sydney show...

Somehow thought "Cloud on my tounge" was your gift to me...

Maybe Tori told you about my request during the M&G the same day...

If you want to say hi - my e-mail is in the Card - yellow envelope - with a picture of the ocean on it - that Tori got with some VERY special ear-rings during the Melbourne M&G.

Miss you girls already!

my girlfriend is from Sydney. every time i leave her i leave little parts of myself with her. it won't be long before she has all of me.

i am a big fan of yours miss clyde, we are quite similar creatures. i am so glad you got to play the place you wanted to the most. i am only sorry i didn't get to see it. being a freaken broke student means limits on touring.

best of wishes
