Awesome. And I mean that in a "non-CVS-clerk-sarcastic-commentary" sort of way. But what I really wanted was a Foster Brooks doll. As for your rants and musings, I'm hooked. I've "favorited" your spot in my web browser. (Your "blog" spot, just to clarify). Again, why do you have to be two states away? (OK, maybe 3 but at this point, who's counting?) :D

Hey, come on, Mad Men is the best excuse ever to not do early morning documentary photography...

+ I adore the barf bag art.
This blog is so...whimsical and fun.
Definitely not self-absorbed. Ha.

Okay, chuck *just* whimsical and fun. I'm totally loving up the Womanizer Dust Bunny post in so many, many ways. Gorey! Joni! habit re-booting! Rereading the beginning of difficult books (Proust, anyone? You know how many times I've gone over the first chapter of Swann's Way? There's something Alison Bechdel quoted in Fun House which I had to laugh at myself for: "Maturity is knowing you will never read all of Proust.") Accepting one's own casual squalor--I'm totally FOR this, but then, you saw my Lodging room, so you know just how full of squalor I can be...

I can't believe Byrne played Heaven at the concert & I didn't go! That is one of my favorite songs ever. Both a song about someone's manic nature & also, in terms of the sound & the chorus, anyway, about dope--I mean, heaving is a place where nothing ever happens, right?
I know I should get into post-TH Byrne but when I try to buy from his prolific oevre w/o guidance I end up w/duds. What do you think his best solo work is?

Hey, nevermind, I don't know what my memories were thinking--I just reread the lyrics--it's not about "mania", it's just about dope. Ha.
Also, I really really want to go to the Old Book store but I never pass by when it's open! One of the frustrations of being so nocturnal, except when ugly activist demands cast my silly vampiric self out into the evol daylight..ha.
Okay, this is the last in this seemingly infinite series of very immature sounding enthuiastic comments...
