Good Morning Joe and All,
I remember seeing Home of the Brave with a friend of mine. Neither of us really knew who Laurie Anderson was; she was a name of someone who was supposed to be important. After seeing the film, we were still confused though we both found the film dynamic and engrossing. She now has her own wing at the Mass MOCA museum where the film plays all day.

I saw Laurie Anderson give a talk in Portsmouth, NH. Not long after she started speaking, a series of videos/photos started on a screen behind her. They seemed to have nothing to do with what she was talking about. We were confused.

About five minutes in she turns her head and sees what's going on behind her.

She shakes her head and laughs and says to us "Why didn't you tell me??!!"

We just though it was Laurie Anderson being Laurie Anderson.

Heyo. Rough Monday in progress. Even though the look at work was terrible (we have this Friday and next Friday off) had to crash hard last Friday--had felt off all week. Bro, his hubs, and unvaxxed 3 year old arrived yesterday from AUSTRALIA. Was supposed to go in to see Mom Friday night and help her set up. Spent Saturday standing in line, outside, for 3.5 hours waiting for a fast COVID test. Came back negative along with flu test so went out yesterday, home at a semi reasonable hour but was too wound up to go to sleep at a reasonable time. Reset alarm clock 2x instead of actually just giving myself an extra 90 minutes of sleep. So, day 2 without a shower, need to throw on clothes and make coffee. Already working since 10 AM. One of the benefits from WFH. On top of it, dealing with family drama from a step-parent who refuses to acknowledge that this trip from bro is NOT about fucking sugarplum fairies and Xmas cheer; it's about the fact that Mom is on her way out and my brother wants my nephew to see her one last time. For various reasons I am in no financial position to tell this person to shove their Yule log up their butt. I'm starting every day with almost zero spoons....sorry to rant but gotta tell someone, somewhere safe where it probably won't be found by my usual social media hounds...

Mom has home aides; she could call them in on the weekends, no sclepping out, no dealing with Stepparent's machinations and forced gaiety, no being locked up in a small apartment with 4 adults and a toddler who is bouncing off the walls, etc. Just me, my PS5, decent Delta-8 edibles, and lots of glorious, glorious sleep....

Is this the anniversary of The Blind Leading the Naked? Or just a coincidence? The Wisconsin boy in me always loves hearing the femmes

Heard that, Jason. I moved to my new place in May and am just now putting the finishing touches on it. Just waiting on a bed frame and headboard from Ikea to come back in stock.

A little bit at a time. My compulsion is to try and fix all the things before moving in but that is just not the right thing to do. So stressful and hard on the brain and body.

3Moons, K8's a teaching artist so is placed for residencies all over the city by the orgs she works for. Right now, two schools in the Bronx (one a charter) and one in Flushing, I believe. Plus this kids' theater project in Red Hook. I *think* that's all right now, but I'm not sure.

DJ Guinski : Be sure to board up all the windows and doors and don't forget about the basement windows. People forget about those and that's where they get in. Plus put out the No one is home, go away sign. Turn off all the lights and don't make any noise.
