Bo Bay Today, Wed. Oct 28, 2009

- jon moore

In the car
A fly stayed the night
Prob’ly closed the bar

It’s ccold
The sun’s just up
Wisps of sea foam
To fill one’s cup

Channel churn
City’s clear
Locals stop me
To bid good cheer

Shorebirds hide
Deep in the sand
Another greeter
Derails my hand

Sea breeze
The big sneeze
Across the land
A high-five grandstand

Right here today on the Bo Bay

Bo Bay Today, Wed. Oct 21, 2009

- jon moore

Silent roar
Born off shore
Channel middle
Ends the riddle

Fog a-hang
Bursts of grays

Light a-dance
Through purple haze

Gulls a-sit

On Stinson spit
Lap dance tides
Give kelp a ride

Sounds pound

Soft, not knarly
As blowing winds
‘cross fields of barley

Foam a-fly
Close to the beaches
Sunbeams fire
Melt foam, the beach leeches

Right here today on the Bo Bay

Pet Sounds: In The Key Of Dee

(via mixtapemixtape)

[Artist Note]

-- by Bullion

It’s The Beach Boys raised in Detroit. It’s Brian Wilson with an MPC. Using Pet Sounds together with drums from your Dad's record collection, this is The Beach Boys' masterpiece remixed by Bullion, with the late great J Dilla in mind. From California to West London via Motor City. Is it fan-tas-tic? God only knows…

Bo Bay Today, Wednesday, Sept. 30 2009

- by Jon Moore

It is fall
Crispy calls
On the bay
Surfer’s stay

Make a wave
Tilt the bowl
Campers crawl
Out of the small

Camping spots
There aren’t a lot
Of hidden caves
To hide a cot

Day in day out
Beach is bed
Downtown hangouts
The place to get fed

And we’re off
One-quarter left
Of two-thousand nine
Now play out the rest

Right here today, on the Bo Bay
