Stumbling across this little "photo exhibit on the universal hive mind today made me very happy. Well, this and that weird, persistently glowing orb that was in the sky so much this week (HAH--that joke NEVER gets old in Seattle!) ... Joan Fontcuberta is a prankster/ photographer. He is from Spain. He is kind of silly and serious at the same time, like so many musics...

"The Miracle of Instantaneous Polderization".

This is brilliant. Thanks for the tip.

If you'll excuse me, I have to go slice a rack of backbacon. I betcha I can find the hidden visage of Dick Cheney within the fat and gristle.


(Edit - leering mug du Cheney found. I asked him about the Nerve girl. He said, and I quote, 'the girl is mine, the dog-gone girl is mine, I know she's mine 'cause the dog-gone girl is mine'. I know not the code of which he speaks bu I'm currently researching Rashi's Talmudic commentary for a reference.)

Ixnay on the D word. I was told by a lesbian that I am allowed to use it because I don't say it mean. Hell, I don;t think I've ever said it.

Maggie from N E!! I just watched some old N E the other day. My ex's sister looks like her...minus the cuteness.

I love seeing a new review come out. All my colleagues labor over their precious music journal publishings and how "oh boy, I got published". Yeah, well I've been published over a hundred times this last year. Now who's laughing? Um...wait, this wasn't about revenge, right?

The ex. with the house and the new Subaru wagon, does not happiness make.

the dentist seems cool, he didn't like prod the obviously infected area which is actually a first for me with dentists, whom i do tend to wait until i am in excrutiating pain before i see. he said it looks like i have "a couple root canals" in my future -- whoo hooo! what could be better!?

Is WFMU the station with Laura Cantrell? I lose track easily. Have fun working on the CD-R - maybe you should send them a girl with a strap-on bearing all of your music selections for the hour. (Just slide the CD-R onto the strap-on - all the way down, so it will look like a shiny, abstract patch of pubic plastic - and have her go Greyhound. You're bound to impress someone.)

As for the aspirin, you're a tougher man than I am.

And as for Greta - girl's a poet and she don't even know it.

I have a KILLER toothache think its a root canal for me, at least one -- this pain has been happening on and off for weeks/ months tomorrow morning I finally go in to see the dentist first time in like 4 years (I know, I know) and unsurprisingly my teeth are in horrible shape, argggggh.

I will be working at the coal mine. Going down, down. Working in a coal mine. Whew, about to slip down. Five o'clock in the morning. I'll be up before the sun. When my work day will be over. I'll be too tired for having fun. Lord, I'll be so tired. How long will that go on? I'll be working, going, working. Whew, about to slip down.

I am so queer.

Technically, I will be working with coal. About a thousand years ago, the products I will be peddling were once coal. Now, they are diamonds in Tiffany settings. And they cost an arm and a leg.

I need to buy my mom some sterling silver for Mother's Day with my employee discount. Something less than $100.

The guy who wrote that Lindbergh book that I just read recently published another book on Lindbergh. If it's as sloppily and arrogantly written as this book was, I won't read it. I mean, what kind of argument is, "That's impossible because I say so"? Whatever.

Don't read The Lindbergh Case by Fisher. Read The Cases That Haunt Us by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker instead. They're much more egalitarian. And better at writing. They can parse a freaking sentence, and they don't use dozens of split infinitives.

damn. the rad waitress girl is "sort of" dating someone who she's been with on and off for four years!

we'd hung out and talked a bit, enough where i thought for sure she'd have mentioned someone, if she was seeing someone, you know? and it wasn't until way late into our thought-it-was-going-pretty-great dinner when she dropped this info. the guy...

Perhaps it's better this way. Sometimes a charming little quirk like the sound effects thing can get to be like fingernails on a blackboard after the bloom is off the rose.

the dinner with the rad waitress is in an hour, at my favorite sushi joint, hooray!

i am nervous. i've got my brown cowboy shirt with white embossed flowers on the lapels and the back in the dryer now with a wet towel (to "iron" it) and i've got to go and clean out my truck in case she needs a ride though...

"deep thoughts" with mike mcg (and three of his favorite rockers):

COSMIC DANCER
Is it wrong to understand
The fear that dwells inside a man
What's it like to be a loon
I liken it to a balloon

I danced myself out of the womb
Is it strange to dance so soon?
----T. Rex

ETERNITY
He who binds himself to a joy
Does the...

Two night ago I was at a boring show in someone's living room -- bunch of listless nu-school emo kids. I excused myself to the kitchen for some pretzels and diet root beer and what did I see??? A magnet on the fridge advertising a show last May for Carrisa's Wierd. HAHAHAHAHAHA. Very odd and I felt two-feet small for a second. I guess one of the chicks there is in a punk band that opened for CW. No one really shared in my excitement, as I would have to explain the SG thing.

Hey sorry to have missed your b-day...hope it was a happy one. I'll take your non-updating for the last couple of days as a sign of good and busy times.

Answers:
1) Um...probably my first CD player back when they were "new technology".
2) Any article of clothing my mom ever bought me.
3) Some friends of mine threw me a surprise 30th BD party. It was pretty rockin'.
4) Overrated? Not when I was 10. Now, it's just another step closer to the grave.
5) Prince Charles. Uh...is he "cool"?

LOL!!!!!! Gerbil village!!!! Oh man...that made me laugh to think of little Mike sitting there as a kid with a gerbil village...aghast at the fatehr eating the babies.

1. A copy of the Hobbit -- 1979
2. probably socks, though i would welcome them now
3. I can't remember
4. Yes, and i think it's sort of blocking out my b-day memories.
5. Siobhan from Bananarama.

6. What are some of the most important things that happened the year you were born

A - Hendrix died, the Beatles were pretty much over, George Crumb wrote "Black Angels" -- the latter is my favorite.

Well, your number's changed and your hair's cut short
And your house is painted white
Gave me a fright

And your line's engaged 'cause you talk too much
The way you always do
When I'm talking to you

But you haven't changed like your number has
You've been all round the world
You're a rich little girl

There...
