1. Wow

I still run around singing the song, Nausea. Did you know that Exene Cervenka was once married to Viggo Mortensen?

2. Yes, I had heard that quite some time ago...

Our guitar player ("Bad Brad") was present at the very earliest rehearsals of X, and used his portable cassette recorder to record the rehearsals.

He brought Top (Taco) Jimmy along with him for the first ever rehearsal session of my band Benedict Arnold & The Traitors. The next day, Jimmy was in-studio on Rodney Bingenheimer's KROQ show with Exene and John Doe, and Jimmy, out of the blue, promoted our band. Thanks to Jimmy, Rodney played our records when we brought them over to the station on Los Robles in Pasadena in the early 80s.

Later, our bass player ("Cash Cobra") became X's merchandiser on the band's tours, and became very good friends with them. From that, I have met Exene a few times at some social events.

3. I fell in love with the punk scene in the late '70's

in Nashville all all places. Then I moved to Tallahassee and there was a small but fun group of kids. I was one of the few women out on the dance floor slam dancing away. Omg, we had fun.
