If I should i.d. today, listen for the extra rasp an A.C.E. inhibitor blood pressure drug is adding to my voice, making me sound _even__more_ like some hep muggles addict. {Lily Tomlin}/{Jane Wagner} had a joke about being on more and more drugs that were less and less fun….

That's a great idea, Murakami! People, do the legal ID while high on drugs! And we (i.e. Ken) will try to guess which drug are you on. Legal IDs on illegal!

Those ACE inhibitors are murder on the throat from my experience & Daddy's. The direct anti-angiotensin drugs like losartan don't have that defect, but cost more and may not be insurance-reimbursed.

You can be off an ACE inhibitor for several days before your throat returns to normal. I'm told it can even be weeks.

When you ape the birds, you have your hands full and end up falling. Looking at it close up, you might want to spring into action, but brush off the notion that you'll just dance into your day, leaping out of your bath. You think you've got problems? Just stick to your plan.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 9:44am steveo:

The Mamuthones and Issohadores are typical masks of the Mamoiada carnival in Sardinia . The two figures stand out for their clothes and for the way they move around in the procession: the Mamuthones proceed wearily and silently while the Issohadores dress colorfully and give movement to the procession.

[...]the name results composed from the roots mam and muth plus the suffix ones. The first would mean "water", the second, from the Greek muthéomai , is going to "call" and the ones group corresponding to the Indo-European suffix on and to the ethnic suffix Basque on , as well as to the Greek óntes ( or ontes Polyb. = I live) from eimí = being, has the clear and known value of "men" for which the Mamuthones they would be the "men invoking the rain".

The absolute best would be to be a female bonobo. Their society is matriarchal so the women have most of the power, and they're constantly getting it on with other females, they're pretty much all bisexual. Pretty much any time a conflict comes up they resolve it by having sex. Fascinating stuff.

Okasa,

Yes, it was a privilege. The aforementioned dwarf is the reason why I'm two degrees of separation to John Lennon. By the way, if anyone pledges to the marathon, as with the Fofo tradition, I'll license my friendship so you can say you are three degrees of separation to a deceased artist, and two deceased Nobel Prize winners.

Nothing personal though. In Ken's old archives there's one show where he played Hans Reichel. The file is corrupted somehow and when the Hans Reichel track comes up it starts an eternal loop on it. I didn't realise and I listened to the stupid song for hours and hours. And that's why I hate Hans Reichel.

Philadelphia is the rudest city in North America. When I came here to live 30 years ago I was a wide-eyed, happy-go-lucky guy with a positive demeanor and go-get attitude. Thru the years, this place transformed into a veritable asshole. It was the only way to make it through each day. Now I am climbing back to a sort of normal plateau but it's been a struggle. Long story long; DON'T COME TO PHILADELPHIA. Brooklyn or the Bronx are better.
