Our backyard mulberry tree is in bloom, and all the neighborhood birds and squirrels are having a raucous food orgy just outside the back door. They're making quite the racket!

May. 24th, 2011 @ 10:29 am Austin Osman Spare by Phil Baker

Now in my hot little hands: Austin Osman Spare: The Life and Legend of London's Lost Artist,. I love this from the foreword by Alan Moore:
While his line and sense of composition have at times drawn justifiable comparisons with Aubrey Beardsley or with Albrecht Dürer, if we seek a match with Spare the visionary or with Spare the man, surely the only candidate is his fellow impoverished South London angel-headed nut-job, William Blake. (p. vi)

PBJ made with Koeze Cream-Nut natural peanut butter, Oregon Growers Strawberry Pinot Noir jam, on grilled organic honey whole wheat from Spring Mill Bread Company. I have proven the existence of god.

There is no part of god that is not in my belly!

...As I appear to have eaten god, I shall have to make another one...

Apr. 20th, 2011 @ 02:29 pm Birdsongs (not of the Mesozoic)
All the websites I've seen for identifying birds are based on physical description. I'd like to find one that ID's them based on what the birds say. While there are birds that chirp expected things like "tweety-bird," I also hear much more colorful things from my window all day long:
  • The Belushi Bird that goes "Cheeburger, cheeburger, cheeburger, cheep!" Apparently, avians drink neither Coke nor Pepsi.
  • The Lucy Ricardo Bird that goes "Ricky Ricky Ricky Ricky Rick, Rick, Rick, Rick." It really wants to be in the show...either that, or it's trying to get my attention.
  • The Tourette's Bird that blurts out "Stupid, stupid, stupid"...to which I invariably reply, "I'm not stupid: You're stupid!" (I really need to get out of the woods more.)
  • There are also a couple of creepy birds that say "Deceiver" and something that sounds like "I butchered him." (Did I mention that I really need to get out of the woods more?)
If only Bob S. was here...

Whilst watching The Tudors yesterday, kakurowski remarked that Henry didn't marry as many times as Elizabeth Taylor. Being a total prog-rock geek, I immediately imagined:

If I wasn't so busy right now, I'd record an album to go with the cover.

[If you don't know what I'm talking about, look here.]

The best translation ever:
wird Dir auch nicht gelingen, weil Du nur zerstören, nicht aufrichten und erhalten kannst = "You will not succeed, because you only destroy and cannot get erect."
I know that would fill me with the urge to destroy!

Google tells me that d'escroc doublé d'un polichinelle means "a swindler wrapped in a bun." It's wrong, but what a great image! I have resolved to use this phrase in the future.

Yesterday was my half-in/half-out day: I've been a member of OTO for 23 years, 7 months and 19 days...the exact same length of time that I haven't been a member.
