The Variations of Outward Form

We’re nearing the end of our CSA run for the season. The Women’s Environmental Institute will be delivering our “grand finale” boxes next Monday. But yesterday’s batch yielded some goodies. Like brussels sprouts! And more kohlrabi. And a Red Kuri Squash that looks much like a pumpkin.

Tonight I get to see TV on the Radio. I love them dearly but was underwhelmed by their last performance. But I am still super ultra excited because The Dirtbombs are opening, and it’s an early all ages show (which means I’ll get home earlier).

A co-worker is headed elsewhere this evening. From him:

I’m probably going to go to this, if only so I can say “I’ve heard Richard Stallman speak“. You may never again have a chance to see some who is so smart and yet looks so much like a hobo.

(If you don’t know who Richard Stallman is, among other things, he started the GNU project.)

Just stumbled upon filmdrunk’s site. And I’m glad I did! Michael Rapaport as a very special super hero? Apparently he is “a different kind of superhero, one who derives his superpowers from taking drugs.” The trailer looks amazingly hilarious. But this made me remember the time I actually stumbled, physically, right in front of Mr. Rapaport. I was mortified. Good thing I don’t wear heels any more.

Fall in my backyard

Bonus: The extremely expressive communications robot. So cute. Or creepy? It’s a fine line.
Plus: Inside Edition with Bill O’Reilly talking Nintendo circa 1988. Oh sweet sweet mullet - and what a job to have, in 1988!
And: Newly released UFO files from the UK government. Is the truth out there, errr, in there?

    Hi Sharyn! Just stopping by and noticed your Michael Rappaport thingy. He was also in this homespun local indie movie: which stars my husband Brian as an extra in the mental hospital. We haven’t seen it since it played at the Riverview cast and crew deal. It didn’t go anywhere except HBO. But it’s worth checking out. He’s also playing a brilliant agent on one of my favourite shows PrisonBreak.

    Ha! Now I want to get that movie to see if I can spot Brian. I’ve heard good things about this Prison Break. Maybe it’s finally time to check it out.
