The first walk. Eric and Clare have just the highest nice & cool factor of anyone I know, and you can't hope to match them because that would require trying and trying is not cool. You just go to their wedding and be glad they are your friends.

Reading Rainbow and then somehow bought--get this--a record from them and then somehow they mailed it to me in the mail. What a country/world/ whatever!
But this story is about mail and here are pictures of it. Look what the cool guy or gal or whoever is in this band or maybe at their record label made for me: a collage! That is not a picture of a collage, it is an actual collage. I didn't know people still did that. But now that I know they do, I think I am going to try one too, very soon.
Just really, though, how cool is it that. And the album, Mystical Participation, is so good, too. Makes me want to stop being a collage artist and take up fuzzed-out guitar and drum music.
That is all for now. Fun weekend planned at the Mississinewa reenactment. Let me know if you want to come.

A woman ponders her $7 Polaroid of herself with a drugged-up boa constrictor hanging on her neck for dear life. $7 sounds like a lot for a Polaroid, but now that the film is not being made anymore, it is kind of a collectors' item in a way.
Oh, circuses. The clowns deserve so much credit because they're the real strong men that the whole things depend on, the way we hope that they are just funny enough to distract us from the tired and abused animals and people and how when, every time they drop a ball, we remember.

I love Air. Really, and I know they're kind of wussy, but every dang one of their records is, yes, awesome except for that last one which is not. To be awesome four out of five tries is awesome.
I know no one watches videos anymore but this one is worth watching. Kind of trippy in a yellow submarine mode, though I have never actually seen yellow submarine.
