Music for Saturday

 SB - thanks for reminding me of Van. This is the song I was trying to remember.

The Saturday (whenver) Nudes

I know, I know. It doesn't have the same ring to it. But. Just as life takes its twists and turns, so does nudity.  ;-)  I blow myself away by my profundity. All I want to say is that the nudes did not make it last night due to the frigid temperatures in the Northeast.  It seems everything is taking longer to thaw than usual.

Happy weekend.

Song for a Snow Day

Between reading Francis Hunt and Singing Bear's blogs, I thought of one of mine and WP's favorite films, McCabe and Mrs. Miller. And what a fitting setting for what is going on weather-wise around these parts. No amount of  "summer feeling" can erase the reality of this storm. Yikes.

Summer Feeling

 Aaaaw, that Jonathan Richman is a crooner. With the worse winter storm in history raging as a backdrop, I could use a little daydreaming.

Take care out there in the forest!

Un Chien Andalou (English: An Andalusian Dog) is a 16-minute surrealist film made in France in 1928 by Spanish writer/directors Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí, and released in 1929 in Paris. It is one of the best-known surrealist films of the French avant-garde film movement of the 1920s. It is also considered one of the most prominent films in Spanish Surrealism.

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
