"the pain that will make you glad to die"

I'm not sure how I got on this maliing list, but I am absolutely addicted to the remix of the 60's group, The Free Design, by Kid Koala and Dynomite on Light In The Attic Records and Productions. I've listened to it a million times, and I'm listening to it now.

The Secret Life of Bees

The Secret Life of Bees

Continuing my trend of reading of contemporary Southern women.... I really enjoyed The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. I stayed up reading til 4 A.M. the evening I started it and finished it before breakfast when I woke up a few hours later.

Next?

rain sweet rain

It finally rained yesterday, after over a month of drought. And a great lightning show to go along with it!

7/7 Community (formerly London Bomb Blasts)

My thoughts are with those affected by the London terrorist blasts.

7/7 makes me think of Culture's album 'Two Sevens Clash' for some reason.

Yesterday, while driving home, my iPod mini selected The Fall's Leave the Capitol, which was a difficult thing to do for London commuters yesterday.

Cherry, more good reading from Mary Karr


Keep meaning to plug Cherry, which I finally got around to reading. I'd originally read her first memoir, The Liar's Club, because I'd heard she was from around Port Arthur, where my folks are from. I had a hard time getting in to Cherry, when Jenni gave it to me awhile back. But I tried again on my trip to Chicago and buzzed through half of it on the flight.

Happy Summer Solstice

Though, depending on who you ask, I may be a day late.

I did chance to see the huge orange moon rising when I went for a walk last night.

firedance with me



Bubba and I checked out a couple of the many firedancers along Guadalupe last night as Third Thursday was winding down. These two were behind Wheatsville Co-op. (Video from my cell phone camera.)

Stendhal's syndrome

and yes, I did suffer from Stendhal's syndrome. I was quite dizzy coming out of the MCA and decided that that would probably not be the time to go to the Hancock Center (and activate my acrophobia on top of my Stendhal's syndrome). I get dizzy just thinking about it.

Chicago, cont'd



Also saw a great, if not dizzying, show at Museum of Contemporary Art, called "Universal Experience: Art, Life, and the Touristís Eye," which worked perfectly for me, as I was in full-on tourist mode, since I don't know anyone in Chicago. Just bumpin' around seeing the sites.

Like the view from the Hancock Bldg. and the fishies at Shedd Aquarium.

Here are my photos from my trip. I took less photos and more video on this trip. (Lots of video of fish at Shedd.) Also took a few with my phone camera. I may upload them later.

(The image above was a sculpture or installation [?] outside the MCA.)
