A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Somebody should tell Ms. Berman a woodpecker got into her canvas. Maybe she can still patch it up.

Now, what's all this about putting clay on your headphones? It's a wonder you could hear anything then.

Just saw the Cave show at MM two weeks ago. What a great place. The James Turrell rooms also amazing, and those will be up for 25 yrs...
Clark institute nearby also totally worth a stop.

In the Wisconsin woods last week, the mosquitos were so thick that I developed a cough from inhaling them. I learned to keep my mouth shut.

Great show today Trouble! xox
Avatar Thu. 7/20/17 10:46am herb.nyc:

hi all. spk'ng of mosquitos, i looked at a mag yest and one headline had "skeeter" in it, a mosquito article. it made me think, isn't that slang for a hooker? i mentioned to librarian, and he goes "im not aware". 15sec later it hit me, from tv show "in living color", one woman is happy her daughter has a job: "my daughter is a skeezer!". i told librarian but he didn't know the show. (article was about making male mosquitos 'bad', then releasing them. result is no eggs. and that just made me think "no milk today, ...".

Avatar Thu. 7/20/17 10:49am JakeGould:

When I was a kid in good old NYC in the 1970s, I liked to take those capsules from vending machines and go down a stagnant puddles in local parks and try to capture what I thought were Sea Monkeys. They were basically mosquito larvae. My dad made me pour them out before we went home because it was better if they just stayed there.
Avatar Thu. 7/20/17 10:50am Mister Dobalina:

I heard that dry ice keeps mosquitos away & also I was once in the everglades in Florida and the mosquitos there could bite you through your clothes. They have super sucking powers.
Avatar Thu. 7/20/17 10:52am βrian:

I expect dry ice might distract the mosquitos due to the C02, but that just means more mosquitos to bite you.
Avatar Thu. 7/20/17 10:53am βrian:

Attract, not distract, I meant.
