It is produced by David Weinstein and Outpost Artists Resources operating out of the Ridgewood section of Queens, NY, where you'll find more yellow bricks than on the road to Oz and the cemetery of your choice is never more than a few blocks from home.

Hello, David, Ruth, the OAR verb, and Ridgewoodians, in and out of bubbles, masked and unmasked, Cheeto-coloured and otherwise.
Avatar 3:45pm david w:

Sem! Our bubble is breaking and it is an odd experience.
Avatar 3:48pm david w:

But it still might be Cheetos for dinner.
  3:55pm ruth:

hi Sem! I'm still masking.

Feel like NYC will need to be masked forever. Ugh!

Avatar 4:09pm david w:

spodi! delighted!
  4:09pm ruth:

Arlo went to my (tiny)High School and Ray and Alice were teachers there. Arlo is a few years older than me and had graduated by the time I got there. Ray and Alice were no longer teaching but still lived in town in the church and the restaurant was still going strong.
  4:10pm ruth:

Hi spodiodi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm spodiodi:

the restaurant and parking lot looked like they were always too busy (for me)

cool, Ruth!

I think I was there at this show. There was a big video with a candle right?I think It must have been the last time I was at Roulette?
Avatar 4:33pm david w:

Candle video yes. And just before the shutdown.
  4:34pm ruth:

I just remember Shahzad had to run out right after the show cause he had a babysitter for the evening.
Avatar 4:38pm david w:

Hey Sem and chresti... I'm not aware of this heat wave. Is it really extreme? Here is just normal hot for NYC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm spodiodi:

AFK (eating, but listening)
Thanks for the show (esp. Alice's restaurant, david w.!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm doctorjazz:

Gotta run, enjoyed the music, catch you next time!
Avatar 4:40pm Sem:

Here in Nova Scotia it is over 90 w/ the heat index today, and has been for a week. Not at all usual.
Avatar 4:40pm david w:

Thanks, spodi. I just couldn't resist Alice, it gets me every time.
Avatar 4:41pm david w:

djazz, be well!
Avatar 4:44pm david w:

@Sem... odd, and I'm curious to know if this is a climate change thing.
Avatar 4:47pm david w:

Here is where Shahzad breaks your heart.
Avatar 4:49pm Sem:

I've lived in the Atlantic coast, on a tidal estuary, since the early 80s. Sea rise is real, it's taking the bottom of my yard away. We have 29 feet of tidal range here, a 3% rise is another foot more, and we are getting it here and now.
  4:50pm ruth:

the land down under has a whole new meaning now. "Better take cover" ...
  4:51pm spodiodi:

nice. men at work
Avatar 4:52pm Sem:

Your sense of the ironic is much welcomed. See everyone there again next time, if the river don't rise...too much.
Avatar 4:52pm david w:

  4:52pm ruth:

Sem I've heard about that enormous tidal range. Hope your house is on a hill!
Avatar 4:53pm david w:

Sem, I hear you. Best to you.
  4:54pm ruth:

Bye Sem.
Avatar 4:55pm WR:

Too often I arrive just in time to say hello and goodbye, so not goodbye; thank you and sees you later.
