Cosmic Dancer by T-Rex. That is what kind of day it is. The flooding is bad in Fairfield from the storm... but Al Curtis found a "trail" through the woods that avoids the lake which has overtaken the roads around the office. I'm not supposed to be walking far distances (even with the crutches), but Valentine carried me some of the way. Thanks Val.

These guys know how to get the ladies/men to really shake it. But hey- would you expect anything less from the young and ultra-charming Yardbirds?

The French verse translates to "What I did, that evening, what she said, that evening, fulfilling my hope I throw myself towards glory". And the "FA-FA-FA-FA-FA" is an Otis Redding song. Check it out:

What do you do when someone (that's your friend) had a bad breakup and you are not around? Don't feel bad. Tell 'em to go play solitare- it's a good game for when you are alone.

Many American don't realize that back in the early 20th century, the Supreme court passed the American Eugenics Movement in order to eliminate any "undesirable" traits from future populations. What did this mean? It meant that over 20,000 people that were found to be " feeble-minded" or "criminals" were sterilized so they were no longer able to procreate. At this time is was considered rational to determine a criminal by the shape of their head (see illustration below). I would strongly recommend checking out this image archive:

a fast facts haiku:
Foot surgery sucks.
The pills give me such weird dreams
Like spider lettuce.

Almost any morning I am home (and able to walk), I stroll over to my record player and set the needle down on these fine jams. It's such a great way to start the day. And if you are feeling blue, just give them a listen to lift your mood. These guys have some incredible reggae stuff. Check out their albums Funky Kingston, From the Roots, Sweet and Dandy, or any one you can get your mitts on.
