Dave Clark Cock.er

I remember having the hots for Dave Clark after seeing a photo of him wearing a white shirt & no pants; he had pulled the shirt down so one wasn’t sure if he had on undies or not. Hairy legs did the trick.18bed01I have their complete works tucked away on some BeeGee’s mp3 discs. But I also have this is stand alone of their greatest hits. I enjoyed their music thanks to consistent radio play. A sweet British semi-soul group with lots of direct pop as well. Catch if You Can always cheers me up. (more Dave Clark Five)18bed02Next on the shelf is a cd of lp to cd transfers of Joe Cocker. I remember his first appearance TV. Within days kids were looking for Cocker shirts – that tie-died underwear top he was wearing. His almost spastic singing style made him appear more radical than he actually was.18bed03His first two lps were full of great music – fun  interpretations of songs I already liked from Leonard Cohen, to The Lovin’ Spoonful – even the Beatles. He made them fresh and earthy. As he became more popular he seemed to loose creative stream & I lost interest in him after these first two releases. I did hear other stuff but nothing that made me want to have it. 18bed04Rounding out this cd are some tracks from a double lp completion of Stevie Winwood. Here I have some of his Spenser Davis work that is prime Brit pop stuff. Another of those soul voices. Good stuff, he was even better with Traffic mind you.sample

Meeting

Naked, once again Jeff wondered if it was worth the humiliation. He knew that if he didn’t have each item correct the meeting would be a fiasco. The wrong socks could be disastrous but not as malevolent as incorrect underwear. If he got those basics right for once he knew everything else would have to fall in place.

He kicked away the pile of boxer shorts he had tried on and removed. He needed something in basic black brief for crying out loud. Something simple and sincere and all he had were these grey and green and white – white! who ever thought of white undershorts for men should have their butt examined.

Perhaps these dark blue ones would be okay. Snug but not tight. Yes just the right sensation, the right support for his contentions. ‘Contentions’ what a great word for balls.

Now for socks. Anything but white – white was so high school gym class – so not adult and he had to feel adult to appear adult. Great a blue pair that matched‚ the undies. Now we’re cooking with under garments.

With the basics finally under control he felt ready for facing the day. The rest of his clothes would be no problem. Clean shirt, grey twill pants, and shoes. Oh Christ what shoes? Which ones? He wanted to be comfortable, not over dressed, but not sloppy either. Deck shoes, Oxfords, Nikes, saddle shoes, penny loafers, nothing plain! Oh God he was going to have to start all over again. He yanked his socks and underwear off and threw them at the wall. Why was it always like this? He thought only silly girls would have this problem but here he was a full grown adult male who couldn’t even get dressed in the morning.

He might as well go to the meeting naked. No that wouldn’t do. He could never show the world the skimpy black hair that raced along his legs in uneven tufts. That would be too shameful. No, he needed to hide that, to hide his contentions as well. Not that they weren’t full and strong – a man’s contentions – but perhaps they too needed to be guarded from the judgmental eyes of others.

He put on the undies and socks he had just pulled off. They would be fine. Plain black shoes would be fine. He had to get dressed. He had to get out of the apartment and down to the elevator. After shave? Cologne? Should he take another shower? All this clothing crap had made him sweat like a pig. No, he didn’t have time for another shower. He had to keep moving. Keeping going.
