A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Random ? For any artist/lefty “historians” on the board.
Is anyone familiar with the Gate Hill Coop started in the 50’s in Stony point? Or an artist named Vera Williams who helped start it?
Supposedly had a relationship to a Christian commune in Glen Gardner, NJ.
Guess a lot of folks that passed thru the Black Mountain School were active there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/12/19 9:53am Phillippe Bastille:

I turned off 7SD after about 5 minutes as well. Too bad I didn't do it after 7 seconds. If the goal was to be annoying instead of funny, they succeeded. Wound up over at WPRB for hours

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/12/19 11:18am SSS:

@karen eliot - well karen, those of us that are aware of things understand that cats know everything. I believe that, when they are sitting around, almost seeming to be meditating, that it is an actual collective effort, done by agreement within the world cat population (telepathically arrived at of course) that keeps our human world within functional limits of operation. I think it has been proven that we cannot really handle it I think.
