I was born in Alaska, in Wainright which is very far north.
I'm in Australia. Just dug my way up Scone Mountain, NSW
& rode down some great red dirt hills.
Rode through shallow water full of tadpoles & minnows
yesterday. It's only a matter of time before hubs on my
new bike are fully submerged.
Little Falls NY is a nice little town. The Mohawk river intersects
with the Erie canal, & there's an abandoned cemetery up high
on a hill above the river, all woods. Just far away enough from Utica.
Has anyone else here been watching all the Indian commercials
for Lifebuoy soap?
The american police are so tentative compared to Erdogan's guards
in that video. Bigger & more armored too, but the bodyguards are the kickers.
I've been reading the Kapka Kassabova book about Thrace, a region
encompassing parts of Turkey, Greece, & a lot of Bulgaria. Great book!
She goes into detail about Bulgaria's Turkish assimilation campaign
in the 80's. You weren't allowed to be Turkish there, people had to
change their names, speak another language, let the banks take all
their money.. they were like Mexicans here - built the place, but no
rights. Lots got killed.
It's so easy here to forget how crazy the "European identity" is - the
nationalist, fortress mentality. Turkey, our biggest ally & full of huge
US air bases, was still excluded from one of the poorest, shittiest &
meanest countries in Europe in the 80s. And now they can repress
their own ethnic minority, one that will never go away, & one which
represents a women's movement to much of world.
Saw KEDI at Riverview yesterday, Thought it would be just a nice nothing, but really liked it.
Dreamland Faces is accompanying SHOES this weekend at Trylon as part of their women directors series.
We're playing an original score with Elaine Evans & Christa Schneider.
Our young heroine works in dreary retail & is the sole supporter of her parents & sisters. Dad's a layabout who drinks beer out of a bucket & reads cheap novels all day. Her money gets handed over to Mom, who works hard to get everyone fed. New shoes are desperately needed. How to get them?

Agreed about Clarke, magma.
They each have a kind of happy-to-be-pissed-off delivery.
Definitely better lyrics than the boring LFTR - P
I like how they record while the videos are being shot, too.
The Yates hearing is still resonating in my brain.
Her competence is so apparent. No wonder the
administration got scared & tried to delay it.
Who among them appears even remotely able if
