    AHHHHHHHH! Here it is!!!!!


    333 South Jensen at Navigation at the Talento Bilingue de Houston.
    (What does that mean anyway, doesn't anybody speak English in Texas anymore????)

    Thursday May 6, 7PM 'till 12PM. $20 at the door covers the wierdest crowd you'll EVER see as well as music from my friend John Evans, the Fanatics, and The Paladins (so the music sounds pretty good!)

    Go to Randyvision.com for more info and pics of previous year's parties and parades. I'm probably in those too!

    Looking at the map it's roughly five blocks North of Minute Maid Park. And for those unfamiliar with that neighborhood, that's pretty rough (j/k)!

    No point in putting the smashed out windows back in the car, I suppose.

    Alan, I think I saw your car last week while in Houston for work. It was Wed night, downtown. We passed by and I saw it just for a flash, but I said, "I know that car." My co-worker, was like--Hu? How could you know that car--Ferrarichat man!

    Yep, Wednesday nights is the best night to hit the Continental Club.

    We know the steel guitar player with Johnny Wolfe's band, and they had a standing gig there. Sadly it ended last week.

    I guess I'll stay home and wax the car now!!

    You should come back THIS THURSDAY for the ball! It's off the hook, man.

    I didn't get any!!!! I thought the West Austin News would put some up on their site. :(

    They were stoked with Valeria and I and I know they took several as we entered the Art Car Ball.

    I'll take a camera this time! I gotta take care of EVERYTHING!!

    I'll call them and see "What's up".

    Well, 1PM is your answer!!

    Thanks to Dr. Tax for stopping by!!

    Maybe he'll post some parade pics today. The Houston Chronicle took a series of photos of Valeria Friday night at Treebeard's downtown. Vogue style, on the hood of the 308! I'm trying to chase them down today.

    Country Rocker John Evans was at the Art Car Ball, and being a few inches taller than I am, he BARELY fit in the car when he tried it out!

    Will try to get some stuff scanned today. How about it, Dr. Tax????

    There's actually TWO famous people in this photo!

    Noted Art Car documentary film maker Harrod Blank (in green shirt with hat) is carrying the videocam at the right of The World's Fastest Art Car.

    He's been involved with displays of Art Cars at The Peterson Museum, in California.
