“I first meet Porous back in ’83 when we were both touring in separate jazz bands.
He was a well versed oboe player and had the reputation for peeing himself on stage
after too many whiskey sours. I, on the other hand, had little notoriety but had been
introduced to him in an awkward situation. After a late session in a smokey Turkish
basement Porous came down the stairs with two beautiful blonds on both arms. He flicked
his cigarette onto the face of the bartender and winked in my direction. I lost control
of my oboe and nerve, never to play again- instead deciding right then and there to
follow Porous’s work to my death. It’s 2007 now and Porous makes drawings of boobies
and penises. Next year he’ll probably be partying in the international space station.
I’ll think of playing the oboe again but know that there’s no reason.”
-Van Edwards

  • I would like to show appreciation to the writer for bailing me out of this setting. Right after scouting throughout the internet and seeing tricks that were not helpful, I figured my life was gone. Existing without the presence of strategies to the problems you have solved by means of your main website is a serious case, as well as ones that could have in a negative way affected my career if I had not encountered the blog. That training and kindness in touching all the details was helpful. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a subject like this. I can also at this time look forward to my future. Thanks for your time very much for the impressive and amazing guide. I won’t hesitate to propose your web page to anybody who needs assistance on this topic.
