British prog rock band extrodinare Gentle Giant played no small part in my musical development. Older brother of the Corn turned me onto this insane but AMAZING band in 198something, we went to a GG concert, me with the trademark Gentle Giant mask painted on the back of my army jacket, that was as close as I'll get in this life to absolute happiness. I loved this band and was a "completest" by the time I graduated High School. No, I didn't have a lot of friends in High School. Check out this video from a 1974 concert. This is a favorite GG album available on Amzon.

Grab your ragwort stems kids, today we're going to fly under the rainbow to visit a land where people of peace live. Pay special attention to the close up shot of the fairy at the bottom, fairy girl breasts come in at a very early age. Young fairy girls are also prone to cold sores which make them look slutty and worn out.

Can you handle the nerdiest blog post of all time? I love a good fountain pen, My brand of choice is the Pelikan Souveran 200m or 400m with a medium or fine gold nib, (pictured above) The body is transparent so you know if it's running low, and most important, they draw easily if kept clean. I've had mine for like 7 years and it's broken in beautifully, meaning the nib wears down at just the right angle to how you hold it. It's easy to get sucked into the world of fountain pens, the ultimate nerd collectable right up there with stamps (unfortunately, I collect those too).
I like the look of these pens but can't justify spending the money.

check out this maki-e, the most expensive pen money can buy at 12,000.00$

It's kind of amazing that in this day and age someone is actually making a disposable fountain pen. Pilot Varsity work great for 1.75$ each and you can get them at most stationary stores. I think you can refill them too if you pull the nib off with a plier.

The L word has never been worse, still we watch it the way we would be compelled to watch an Olivia Crusise ship keel over and slip under a glimmering caribbean horizon. Last night we found that Jenny now has a light British accent which was confusing but we came to accept it. Bette has begun her new job at CU and is working to "make the art program better then RISD and Yale", we appreciate the effort at realism, but will CU (actually spelled See-You) be able to rise to the occation? Seems all the students and faculty are lesbians behaving badly, encluding Sybil Shepherd's character, Dean Bloat-ox. They've even addressed the “diversity” issue in season 4, providing Kit with a bronze sheen that gives her the appearence of a Native American AND a black lady! Our friend Anne Stevenson has suggested that Shane's hair get a spin off show, we agree and are working on a pitch to Ilene Chaiken that encludes a participitory drinking game (participant will down a Jägerita everytime there is shameless product placement for Apple computers). Most exciting to our L Word study group was the introduction of the real life L Elements (pronounced "Lelements") line of prét a porte featuring the Dana cancer jeans which have pink ribbon stiching, "limited edition, unlimited hope." Right.

Blasting from the past! John Baldessari's Untitled (The Thinker), 1958

Woah. Did everyone read this article in the Times about the lastest thoughts on Free Will?
A bevy of experiments in recent years suggest that the conscious mind is like a monkey riding a tiger of subconscious decisions and actions in progress, frantically making up stories about being in control. -NYT More

Although his first love will always be dentistry, Foghorn's intrest now lies in building maintaince. The housing unit he supervises has six units, a deck and a large roof area. The former tenants were beer bottles but they've been evicted and well, properly disposed of. Foghorn, or Mr.Roper as we will refer to him for now on, spends his days moving from unit to unit inspecting the interior walls, his area of expertise lies in fixing holes by making them bigger mostly. He is pictured below scrutinizing the underside of the deck for possible repair work.

'Be off!' say Winter's snows..." by Victor Hugo

"Be off!" say Winter's snows; "Now it's my turn to sing!" So, startled, quivering, Not daring to oppose

(Our fortitude grows dim in The face of a Quos ego), Away, my songs, must we go Before those virile women!

Rain. We are forced to fly, Everywhere, utterly. End of the comedy. Come, swallows, it's good-bye.

Wind, sleet. The branches sway, Writhing their stunted limbs, And off the white smoke swims Across the heavens' gray.

A pallid yellow lingers Over the chilly dale. My keyhole blows a gale Onto my frozen fingers.

It seems Winter's snows are no longer so bossy now are they! Infact they are all together lacking. It's a shame cause I've got this great winter outfit ready to wear
