I was looking at this page
http://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy/reference/generated/numpy.random.logseries.html#numpy.random.logseries

To partially answer my own question
np.random.logseries(p=.923456789, size=(3, 2))
array([[31,  1],
       [ 2, 38],
       [ 1,  1]])

"loc" is not valid,
"scale" is not valid
