Beethoven




O.K. we had a nice time downtown today buying stuff for relatives.
Breakfast at the restaurant above the left wing book store.
I forget the name.
And dinner at the Pike Place Pub.
Delicious spicy salmon stuffed with crab and a pint'o'stout.

Got cold, it's nice to be home in the calories again.

Got home only to find that my mp3 posting was flawed.
I've got the order straightened out (I think)
but there seems to be a question about the second SQ,
so I'll have to check that out.

Meredith had a bunch of B&N book gift cards to redeem so we went a bit berserk there.
If the chillins don't learn how to read, it won't be our fault.

Alzo, for my own self, I bought Oliver Sacks' book about music and the human mind.

The human mind sounds like an interesting proposition,
I'll have to try to get aholt of one someday.

My profile MP3 just loaded, finally, it is now in the right place.
Also known as "Aspice Quod Felis Attraxit"
Number 4 on your MP3 dial.

I wonder if we have a picture of the cat that's doing all the (singing?)
Her name was Heller

I'll go check the other problem now.

II (s'posed to look like a double bar, means the end)

Hallo, Lane!
The computer terms are all gibberish to me.
In plain (translated from German) English: The LL sends regards to you, Meredith, and Keth, and so do I.
Tschüß,

Hallo, Lane & his Readership!
I have just read Ilkka Talvi's 9 December blogspot at www.schmaltzuberalles.blogspot.com and would highly recommend all of you also read it; it is THE most intelligent analysis of the current mess in which the world now finds itself!!!!
If he played your quartet as well as he analyzes the current situation, the recording should be a masterpiece!!
Tschüß,

OK, so the mp3 was "flawed". So that helps to explicate why I could not access the string quartet, right?

You folks buy a lot of books. Do you trade them back in when done, or put them by the dozen on shelves? Melva doesn't like it when I actually buy books. She makes regular trips to the library for her daily novels. She reads constantly, but often does not remember titles or authors. What's up with that. Over this last year, or so, I bought some Richard Brautigan, infleunced by you; some Cormic McCarthy, and of course every book by Sherman Alexie I could get my hands on. The "heavy" reading you get into would sink my psyche, or put a glaze over my eyes at the least.

I like the lay out in Barnes & Noble stores. They go a long ways to make it look like a "friendly" used book corner store; lots of comfortable chairs and neat posters and attractive layouts. Probably, though, you are better off to actually go to a used book store if you want to save some scheckels, enit?

Heller has quite a meow range; several octaves it seems. Did you computer inhance his voice or what?

I fought wet snow falling all the way to the office. If it keeps up I will bail out early this afternoon and boogie for the border. I did not sleep well last night dreaming of 10 foot snow drifts and hyperthermia. I should quit watching the 5pm local news.

Jannie stopped by over on Alex's blog site. I, for one, did invite her to check out the music and pregnant prose. San Juan Island, by the way, it going to get like 6" of snow. Who knew?

I managed to catch a cold this week, so as I type I feel like 12 kinds of rat shit. If I were Doug, I would jut lie in bed as if I were dead, only to rise to drink liquids and piss.

Poetry, even when apparently most fantastic, is always a revolt against arifice, a revolt, in a sense, against actuality.

The difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that in a democracy you vote first and then take orders. In a dictatorship you don't have to waste time voting.

How wonderful to have Joyce, Whitman, and even Bukowski putting their wisdom on this site. I start my days with a frown, and then endeavor to get over that.

I prefer the funny stuff that Fields shared. I can see his red nose now, and hear that nasal twang as he zinged out his one liners. Actually he lives right down the street from me, so I am speaking literally.

They still have some tough Comanches near Jannie in Austin. Hate to think she could lose some of that blond mop on the way to the store.

I think the big celebrity in Austin, besides Jannie, is film director and band leader Robert Rodriquez.
