Hi Julie, everyone! I can't join the conversation with any food anecdotes involving meat, but apparently my animal lover days are over, regrettably. Meaning, it's gotten colder and local house mice have decide to move in - hence I have used mouse traps for the first time in my life. I am a bad person and hate myself.

{ It was Peter Sinfield who coined the name "King Crimson" which had its roots in the historical tradition of branding any bloodshed monarch as a "crimson king" but, in the case of the newly formed band, explicitly alluded to the worldwide opposition to the military involvement of the United States in Southeast Asia. }

Stanley. 'Rock On' remains an all-time fav. And yes, t'was a trip out to the Tree of Brain today.

Andres, ha ha, still saddled with the bills huh? To be fair, he's a comparatively low-cost person, deeply unmaterialistic on the whole. Except in the good way of wanting to expand his nascent record collection. Can't complain there...

Thanks Chris, and HyperD.

One of Alain Robbe-Grillet's later films had a character called Karen Zeitgeist, and I always thought that was such an excellent name. A female singer should definitely steal it.
