the devil and Richard Hell

. . . are meeting death at not just any crossroad, but Au carrefore ├ętrange.

Oh, yeah, devil, Richard Hell. Richard Hell, the devil.

(Not a commentary, just clever shorthand/idle pointing. Back to napping now . . .)

reading or just read

The Velvet Underground and Nico by Joe Harvard

Fun 'cause of Joe Harvard's interjections about his wild teen years in East Boston or chatting with Jonathan Richman. Interesting 'cause there always seems to be another story or another point of view on the Velvets, Warhol and all that.

Sudden Music and Why Birds Sing, both by David Rothenberg

Sudden Music is fun 'cause of the folk stories the author uses. Interesting because I don't know if I agree with his eco-aesthetics, but who wants to read a xerox of one's own notions.

Why Birds Sing is fun & interesting because Rothenberg goes at birdsong with science and poetics.

Both books (or at least the editions I borrowed from the library) have CDs of Rothenberg's music which I haven't truly listened to yet. Entirely an indication of my unwillingness to load a CD player (even greater than my hesitation to crack a book).

Back to napping . . .

where trouble goes angels follow

(Courtesy 8270laneman.)

While more of a fan of The Trouble With Angels (Hayley Mills, Rosalind Russell and so forth and so on), I like the theme song to Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows.

Likewise, I caught the start of Modesty Blaise which I hadn't seen since watching it as a kid on late night TV. Unfortunately I saw no video clip of the opening credits, but that theme's great too.

As unterkayness continues to mention the same favorite blogs over and again, the fave blog & whatnot roster in the right hand column has been expanded.

And unterkayness takes a long nap to dream, reflect and otherwise do nothing for a while.

In the interim, the expanded list of usual suspects will serve you well.

the results are in

Poll One asked . . .

dogs & cats: at odds or in cohoots?

100% chose "Yes. Wait, what was the question."

Now we know for certain.

Poll Two asked . . .

do you believe in polls?

100% of those responding chose "I believe in wizards."

Had I voted, I would've chosen "Crickets know my name." But the people have spoken.

And the crickets will surely bide their time.
