Handy, perhaps the strategy is you will never look beyond the cover of a diary with that image as you will never get past it? Although, one may think there is the promise of more such niceties inside! Like many things, I have a theory that has destroyed itself via "too much thinkin'"

Avatar 3:42pm JakeGould:

@djsheilab: So regarding how to talk about your experiences with the pandemic while you are stable and others aren’t? Honestly I’m honing my listening and “shut up for a second” skills even more when dealing with strangers or neighbors that I don’t really know.

The thing that really brought it home for me is when — at the beginning of Ramadan — there was a U-haul truck that literally just stopped on my corner in Bay Ridge, opened up the back, and a crowd of people just swarmed to get free boxes of food from a charity. I was barely able to walk away without being swept away.

Now they charity stuff is more organized and sadly because so many people are in bad shape in this part of Brooklyn.

It’s like endless sadness reminders.

I mean I barely talk about the day job I still have because I still have it. And only mention it when I have to.

This mess is not ending any time soon with the idiots we have in office.

Also, I feel that WFMU is the only safe space I can say this… But honest everyone per formatively baking or showing off your regrown scallions on social media need to stop it.

Bread is readily available and scallions cost utterly nothing. Regrowing 50 cents worth of scallions is a very silly thing to do… Unless you are less than 12 years old then please make bad bread and second-run scallions!

From the Nick Cave lyric, or is there a deeper source for "death and vanilla"?

Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 4:35pm brainiac:

@Handy, they only cop to the fact they had pets by those names:

First, we need to know about the name. Death & Vanilla - why, what, how?

Anders: It was basically two pet rabbits, one black and one white and they had these names. We just put them together. That was it.

I established just this afternoon that neither Kate nor the dog thinks very much of my singing "in the style of" "Running Up That Hill."

(Voltron's the same way, Sheila. Wolfs it down, but then if anything upsets him, up it comes, and then he walks away and Callipygian and Lulu split it.)
