I HAVE FORGOTTEN ALL OF IT. I LOST IT IN THE HUDSON RIVER ON A SUNNY RAINY DAY...

I LOVE YOU. I love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love you,
watermelon love me
I love you, watermelon.

There's some rock-meets-bluegrass music this Sunday night with EmmaGibbs at NorthSix ("featuring Tungsten74's bass player"); Who knows what time? Someone tell me if you find out what time. [+ northsix.com]

If you are going to learn to operate a subway you will have to show up for train training.

MikeC of Brooklynkid.com has alas redesigned. Climb the peak and reach new heights of meccapixel.com.

Holycrap, go see Winged Migration. Run to the theatre; fly home (with thick uncomprehensible french accent and honking chriping sounds in your head). Makes me want to see the much recommended Microcosmos. And Kestral's Eye.

PSA: Dear lady friends:
Don't take Coral Calcium. Take other types of calcium. Every day. But don't take coral calcium. It turns out coral calcium can have LEAD in it. Lead makes you crazy and sad. I just found this out. I threw my coral calcium away today. If i've been sad and crazy around you lately, you know why now.

eel's coming to town!

"WHERE THE BRAIN THE EYE AND THE HEART FALL IN LINE"
(H C-B on photography)

+ Henri Cartier-Bresson interviewed on NPR's Morning Edition this morn, by Susan Stamberg. (available in audio):
H C-B, the first photographer ever to show in the Louvre "oh, blah blah blah"'d the idea that his photos (or photos, in general) are Art.

"I never think about photography, it doesn't interest me..." —H. C-B

(Also interviewed, Lucinca Williams. She's hottdamn cool.)

Speaking of divine French art,
+ Vendredi Soir (Friday Night), Claire Denis' new film is out. A hypnotic sexy visceral dream saturated with reality and analogy and Paris rain and sex and beautiful hotel rooms and whimsy, with stunning musical score (by Tindersticks' violinst [help me out here, Sxx...Dicken Hinchcliffe?]). I'd like to ask that you disregard what David Denby for The NewYorker wrote and find yourself sitting in row 4 of the cinema, enchanted.

+ wolf makes me happy (note the many expressions of wolf. Here, Wolf clearly feels soothed in the paws.)

IF YOU CALL AT 8:20 AM I GET TO TELL YOU MY DREAM

Mom called this morning early and woke me from a dream;

"I was up late last night mom...    (pause)...     Reading, mom. I was reading." We hung up shortly. A bit later she called back to follow-up, and, Ha ha ha, ah ha ha ha ha ha. I started telling her my dream:

Austin, Texas was a fabulous place and many were there: my parents, sister, chris, Granny, sharon. We were on a mission to buy Granny a cowboy hat. She knew just what she wanted.

On the way, we saw a stack of armadillos. Some people were stacking armadillos. I felt it was cruel. One armadillo sauntered off, disgruntled. His teeth fell out of his mouth in one peice, like a rack of dentures. He stopped in his tracks and gummed them back into his mouth with his lips... got to make due with what you have, i thought.

We arrived to a barn floating on a lake, greeted by the master of the house who was an enourmous lumberjack of a man in overalls; He would sell Granny the hat. I climbed up a narrow ladder into his home, the last step impossible to reach, he grabbed both my hands in his and said "you willing to go for a ride?" as he fell backwards onto a haybail, flinging me up-and-over his head, into his livingroom where I met his wife and children. They had a long dog. Like a weiner dog, but longer. Long fuzzy ears. My family followed behind me.

Granny pullled out her business card, which had a verse from the Lord's prayer printed on it (it was actually the prayer of St.Francis of Assisi), but-- several of the words were replaced with the word "Granny":

Lord make me a Granny of thy peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow Granny...
...For it is in giving that we are Granny
It is in Granny that we are pardoned,
It is in Granny of the self that we are Granny to eternal Granny.
Amen.

Then we all found ourselves singing hymns as a group; our hosts knew the words, and I didn't...trying to follow along. I woke up singing the final phrase of a hymn, very big voice, very church-like:
Spi-rit In A Bur-ger Place
Spi-rit In A Bur-ger Place

grate 42nd street

. . . . . .
So, at the risk of hitting the point over the head a little hard (?), I'm thinking yeah, BRING BACK MONICA LEWINSKY, and protection of the environment, and a strong economy, and civil rights, and abortion rights, and recycling, and media-consolidation-control, and our local firehouse, rent control, and... French fries.
