Appreciate the shout outs, Pseu. Nice to be recognized for our myriad dignities and indignities.
  12:38pm ?:

Hey Pseu just FYI handicappable isn't a "slur" but it can be fairly PTSD inducing for disabled people as it was pretty much coined by family members embarrassed/apologetic by their kids/siblings having disabilities and not willing to accept disability as a reality. We also hate differently abled.

Know you were just rattling and most abled people don't know but kick it from your lexicon pls! <3

Creem magazine enforced most if not all of my early and continuing vices. What's not to like?
  12:57pm egould:

I was walking in Naples in Long Beach, CA one Saturday morning. A guy was hanging Christmas decorations in his front yard. As I was walking by, he asked me if I could help him put a Santa Claus figure higher up on a tree branch. I helped him out and out Santa high in the tree.

That guy was Paul Williams.

Lisa Marr... The Google says she was in Cub. I might have a 7" by them, but I didn't listen to it much if I do, and her voice sounded different 30 (gulp!) years ago anyway, so I guess her voice just reminds me of someone I can't put my finger on.
