Darcy Allan Shepherd, this song is for you my brother , I miss you like all the others

I can't really talk about this now, I just can't find the words but I gotta say something.

Downtown just aint the same.

It's homogenized and disenified and oh so wholesome. A few patches of good honest sleaze remain. It's just not the same. Bukowski would have felt at home not that long ago.

Sometimes you just have to skip town.

I love Anchorage but sometimes it just gets on your nerves. To make matters worse I go to the bar and I get cornered by these life draining fucks, see my last post. I want to have a few drinks with people I like but, no. Tourist season is coming and I'm starting to almost hate downtown So, I took a little jaunt to Amsterdam. The wife and I had lovely time, quite relaxing, thank you very much. The best part about going to Amsterdam when you live in a place with a large tourist industry is it makes your hometown tourist less annoying. You find yourself feeling like the ultimate geek tourist. Ten seconds later someone come in and bumps your self-esteem up a couple notches.
