edit to add: I interviewed in short this guy later and he told me he has been a hobbit longer than he has been a musician. I was thinking “smoke-stack lightning” a howling wolf reference mixed with whatver it is in Tolkien’s world that Tom Bombadil smokes.
he said to send him link by sussing “hobbit” and “ukelele” and maybe Washington.
I thought the street music of Seattle was first-rate.
Smokestack Bombadil? (not actually a hobbit, but a friend of hobbits. Too obscure. Note that in the parody “Bored of The Rings” which wiki attributes to Harvard Lampoon, they call Tom Bombadil “Tim Benzedrine” i.e. he’s a druggie and a hippie. I read it years ago: ball-hog for Balrog. Leg-o-lam for Legolas)
dude, what’s your name?
from his own domain:
i am wanting to either link to picture of adorable puppies born on Shackleton exhibition, or to other street musicians from my Seattle trip or to Isaac Davis “Shoals of Herring” which nearly surfaces a few posts later
