addendum: etcetera

Managed to get a shot of the aforementioned (5/4/05) "R.I.P." cross-thingy south of L5P, across from the new hellmouth...er...strip mall (behind the cut):




We'll, actually I didn't. Sell out, I mean. But then no one asked me.


Signs of the Apocalypse, directly across the street from the above memorial. All the usual suspects...


More dren, just because I'm bored. Amazon.com lists 15 books which include the SIP "red witches." But 13 have only one mention each. One has 3. Murder of Angels carries the day with 14 references. There's a bio of Louis B. Mayer. Books on witchcraft (big surprise). Books by Anne River Siddons and the homophobic Orson Scott Card. Another SIP in Murder of Angels, "bird squawks," occurs in 21 books in Amazon's stock. My favorite is definitely The Complete Idiot's Guide to I Ching by Elizabeth Moran. Once again, MoA uses this oh-so-unlikely phrase more than any of the other books. Oh, and the word "fucking" appears on 111 pages in the book. I'll have to try harder next time.

You'll fucking have to fucking try harder next fucking time.

I eagerly await the SIPs for Frog Toes and Tentacles. 'rhinoceros smegma'...'freakish undulating fucktumors'...'bleached fossils shrieking at trembling pudendae'...

Oh, that will be interesting, if that book even shows up on Amazon.

Oh, it has to. If only for the flamboyantly shitheaded 'customer reviews.'

'I bought this book as a Mother's Day present for my mom who loves frogs and it...it liquefied her.'

Y'know...Red Witches would be a pretty good name for...something. I have no idea what. But it sounds like a good name.

That big box store picture is mighty mighty frightening. I can't wait for the day when they all go out of business and we huff and puff about what to do with these stupidly big stores.

They are the lofts and condos of the next generation of yuppies. Or may generation after next.

The future is here: at the moment they're the large empty eyesores in weed-infested parking lots. Occasionally one finds a 2nd life as a makeshift flea-market and/or Halloween/July4th temporary shop for cheap imported crapola. We have tons of them left over from the grocery-store wars, plus KMart and Venture going out of business. When a new store comes along, do they snag an existing bigbox? Noooo..... they want one with shiny new cinderblocks.

Bingo. And not only does the huge new store have to be buillt, but an area of land many times its size must be leveled and paved for all those shoppers.

Listen to "Fred Meyers" by Glen Phillips (who used to be in Toad the Wet Sprocket). It's about the Fred Meyer stores and other big box stores of the Northwest being home to squatters after some enormous disaster has left millions homeless. Believe it or not, it's a love song.

Walk up the escalator/ To the section that was Kids Ware/ I'm on the back wall, left side/ Under a sign that says "Levi's"/ Top bunk, second row/ I'm not in right then? ask around, somebody will know...

I've had it in "heavy rotation" for a couple days now, that and the new NIN.

Yep. Just this past September. One of the coolest things that has ever happened to me was William dedicating "Running Up That Hill" to me during a show...

Signs of the Apocalypse, directly across the street from the above memorial. All the usual suspects...

The Office Depots next to Best Buys almost always have no more than two customers inside. I guess there're two or three things you can get at Office Depot that you can't at Best Buy. Meanwhile, Office Depot is filled with merchandise no one buys . . . I wonder what happens to all the computer stuff that goes obsolete after a month?

There's a bio of Louis B. Mayer.

I wonder what Louis B. Mayer has to do with red witches? I have so many questions to-day! Maybe he was afraid of communist women . . . Actually, that makes sense . . .

    At first I didn't think I'd like Poor Things, but ended up really loving it. I agree, though, I wish the ending had been somewhat different. I was hoping that they'd put Dr. Baxter's brain into…

    I recently re-read The Red Tree, and this post got me thinking about parts of it. A writer appears to have lost her ability to write, to create fiction, and thus is left susceptible to "the madness,…

    All I can find out about Susan Rand is a link in a blog from 2012 to 404 page not found dead website so I assume she isn't terribly relevant

    I feel like I've been screaming into the void for over a decade now on here. For some reason, I still like this corner dive bar and am not ready to put the chairs up and turn the lights off yet.…
