Had to take call part of Sunday night.. threw my Monday schedule totally out of whack. Lots of work needed doing, and I got the bulk of it done… mostly sweep-up today, with paperwork, I expect.
Tar cart detail… the wheel and everything is totally coated. stinky, smoky, icky stuff. IT’ll keep me and my stuff dry come the next hurricane.
Hail weather.. 20 minutes prior, there were clear skies, and sunshine. I was fortunate to get a lift home, rather than trudging through that to the bus stop.
Power Records Plaza – provides the book and record version of the Justice League theme. Ouch. I still sort of dig Metamorpho’s though.
Maj. Gen. Horatio Gordon Robley & Maori heads
Originally uploaded by pantufla.
At first, I thought the heads were cut out photos. But nope, they’re real heads.
Major General Horatio Gordon Robley’s ethnographic book Maori Tattooing has been the standard reference on Moko, or the Maori art of face and body tattooing, ever since it was published in 1896. Dover recently reprinted it. The above photograph of Major General Robley with his collection of tattooed Maoria heads comes from Medicine Man,a gorgeous book about Henry Wellcome’s museum of curios
Moment of Lyric – mp3
Here we are stuck by this river
You and I underneath a sky
That’s ever falling down down down
Ever falling down
Through the day as if on an ocean
Waiting here always failing to remember
Why we came came came
I wonder why we came
You talk to me as if from a distance
And I reply with impressions chosen
From another time time time
From another time.
