I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

@Dave in Vermont - How much do you charge for this service? Asking for a friend.

You see, Bryce—when there was one set of footprints?

That's when I had to run and check on my muffins.

@sphere we often have to accept sacrifices listening to FMU. Once Kurt blew out the left front speaker in my car with Maggot Brain

This reminds me of the radio drama from David Lynch's Inland Empire -- I wonder if this inspired it in any way?

"it is the most non-sensible thing I ever heard over a radio, banging, slamming, hammering, or was something wrong at the station, it has me so nervous I can't even write."

That Mysterion chant track earlier reminded me of this exact track!

Avatar Fri. 4/8/16 2:12pm Bryce:

"As in many of his books, Mencken had jotted into them his reactions. In one, he complained that Wolgamot “was writing this balderdash even before Sara died.” This had prompted him to get on the phone and demand to know, “Wolgamot, are you crazy?” To which the author had replied (as Mencken put it, “unpreturbed”), “No. I am quite sane. I just like to write that way.” "

"Wolgamot ... told Ashley ... there were two names he would like to change: Pissarro and Thespis-apparently because he was bothered by the first syllable of one and the second syllable of the other"
Avatar Fri. 4/8/16 2:30pm βrian:

Nay, Vary Titanically. It's good advice.
Avatar Fri. 4/8/16 2:31pm βrian:

Wolgamot sounds like a grain fungus.

"I asked if he would come read his work at the University of Michigan, to which he replied, “Work? What work?” I said In Sara, Mencken, Christ and Beethoven There Were Men and Women. He said, “Ohhhh” and then, “I thought that book had died the death.” He declined our invitation. Later it became clear he didn’t believe in readings."

Whoa, it ended.

I can't stop laughing. While reading it, kept hearing John Cage's deadpan delivery.

We've had periodic snow squalls today. There are whitecaps on the lake.
Avatar Fri. 4/8/16 2:45pm geezerette:

Brrrrrr! We don't even know what that means! Cold to us is 65 above.
  Fri. 4/8/16 2:46pm JakeGould:

Is this gunfire? Or underwater noise?
Avatar Fri. 4/8/16 2:47pm βrian:

65? That's almost hot! (But not quite ...)
Avatar Fri. 4/8/16 2:47pm geezerette:

Whitecaps on the lake sounds beautiful,if you have heat & don't need to go somewhere.
