Light show

“Well done, Yahweh,” as my fellow ‘Burqueño Doc Sarvis once said in “The Monkey Wrench Gang.” Also, “Weather’s comin’,” as his comrade Seldom Seen Smith added. “We might have a sprinkle or two tonight. On the other hand we might not.”

The temperatures became more seasonable overnight. But if that’s the price of admission to yesterday’s sunset, why, we’ll pay it.

    That’s a beauty!
    Weather here is unsettled for the next week. Red flag conditions yesterday and again tomorrow. But a 50% chance of rain on Thursday. I’ll gladly put up with the wind if water comes with it. 1500 acre wild fire over in the Dragoon mountains yesterday.

    A very nice sunset! They do help to improve the mood.

    Nice photo! Reminds me that I need to spend more time on the sunset side of this island. We live on the sunrise side and the city buildings block the sunset view from our apartment – but a five-minute walk takes care of it!

    I had the Saga all ready to ride this morning. Thought if I got our early I would beat the wind. Wrong. We have a steady 14mph wind with gusts to 25. So, maybe tomorrow? I hope I get rained out on Wednesday. Patrick and Khal, looks like you guys have some rain coming on Wednesday night. Fingers crossed.
    Meanwhile, our first wild fire of this year is getting bigger, and we have red flag conditions today from 1200 to 1900.

    How to Be in Two Places at Once: The Firesign Theatre in the US and Vietnam

    Four comedians trained in poetry and psy-ops, Firesign Theatre created dense, album-length art-objects that could take multiple spins to understand. Comedy in the form of abrasive soundscapes that reviewers were as likely to call “frightening” as “funny.” This week, we explore how these albums were heard: in groups, at teenage house parties, in poet John Ashbery’s pot smoke-filled living room, and on military bases in Vietnam.

      I first listened to them at my cousin’s apartment in Buffalo, over near Buff State. Usually we were listening to them while partaking in certain organic intoxicants that had to be lit and inhaled through a water pipe….

    For no good reason.

    […] Thanks to Steve O’ for sending me on a little trip down Dr. Memory Lane with his mention in comments of a KCRW podcast that looked forward, into the past, at the Firesign Theatre. […]
