I didn't notice anything about a limited edition, and frankly I don't think I want to check that closely. But maybe?

That's a very complex piece of art. Contradictory, yet to the point. Or something.

OK, so check out a version of The Sound of Summer by Hungary's Neoton Familia. Kinda cable-access ABBA. Cover art for their song Oh Happy Day also worth a look. I'm taking an extra Xanax and going to bed.

Like CHanukah. Same thing--although the way it is spelled in English it is hard to tell

but I was just about to mention CHallah!

@efd: You can mention Challah. I’m fine with that and who am I to say on your show? But pronunciation of the guttural “ch” is so pedantic.
