Wow, and double wow!Mandora, mandora, mandora,ye looks slick, shiny, andready to be plucked,strummed, twanged, and flanged.After all the fussing youdid over this instrument, oneexpected some poor vessel, somesad creation. Instead we seea fine finished instrument.Like Anonomann, I would liketo hear its voice, its hum.Man, I love this mild winter!51, windy, and clear this fineBeatles/Doors/ZZ/Stones/FloydTuesday. In all the yearsI have been playing the tunesgame on the drive in, I havenever had a 5 star morningbefore now; some threes, one four. In 30 minutes of commutethere is time for about 8 tuneson KZOK. I have my favoriteslist, and when I get none ofthem, it starts the day"flat ass". But today, hey,it is way up and out there!Melva is doing better withher broken foot. We returnedthe knee scooter since shedoesn't like it and doesn'tuse it. I watched RECOUNTyesterday, all about the 2000Presidential election. Itmade me angry all over again.The film club picked Todd Haynesfilm, SAFE, from 1995, withJulianne Moore. It hit hardbecause it is about the pletheraof us that seem to have somemysterious immune system failure.Is it the environment? Is itmetaphysical and part of ourjourney to self discovery?I joined a new blog site, the 6 Sentence Connection.What can you write in justsix sentences. They call themsixers. It is a challenge forme, as you would assume. Thekey, of course, are the clauses.6 sentences can go on for quitea ways; or not. I got the pickup double waxed yesterday. Itso shiny and slick it actuallyscares me; seems like somebodyelse's vehicle. This 3 dayweekend seemed just the rightlength actually. Usually theyseem short, way too short.I have significant agenda totrudge through in preparationfor June 18. Listening toJoni Mitchell singing, "shineon another asshole, passing onthe right." So the mandora lookscool and ready to play.Thanks for sharing.
Hallo, Lane!!A beautiful instrument on that beautiful sunny day yesterday, the date of your post re: the "Man"!!!!A work of art!!!!!!!!!How does it sound (when you getb that far)? I'd love to hear it -- and see it, live!!!!!!!!Toi, toi, toi, as we say in the German theaters before a premiere!!Tschuess,Anonomann
Hallo, Glenn!Tghe first thing I learned after completing my doctorate (where papersd were graded on the prof's bathroom scales) and coming into the "real world" was that the shorter the memo, the more likely it would get read. (Words to the wise???????????????)Tschuess,Anonomann
Well, gosh, Anonomann. Yourmany not-so-subtle notes tomineself regarding the lengthof my comments is well put.And yet, hey, I have a lotto say, to share, to expel,to synthesize. Yes, shortness,brevity, petite, quiet littlecomments are easier to scan,but mine have meat on themand in them. If one is notready for such heft in theirreading, then they are victimsof the insane need many haveto rush through everything.So take a breath, roll upyour sleeves, and read on.I have a TFC monthly meetingtonight, and we discussTHE YOUNG VICTORIA, MRS. BROWN,& BRICK. Then we ready ourselvesfor February, the Oscar nominations, and viewing ofBergman's PERSONA, Todd Hayne'sSAFE, and A SINGLE MAN. Saw theannouncement for the galaGrand Theater Oscar broadcastparty at the Rialto. We stillintend to have our own littleparty only three blocks fromthere at our 924 Broadwaymeeting hall. Could be toughto find parking. Still tryingto figure out if we want todo another pot luck, or tryand cater it.
