Torture – Sorry about that nasty picture from yesterday, but torture is a nasty business. I don’t want these pictures released because of some perverse pleasure that results from seeing them. I want them released because they are horrible.
Trilok – His new record is called Massical and it’s coming out in the UK on 5/25/09. The original date was to have been early this month, but clearly that didn’t happen. When will I be able to get my copy? Who knows.
Em’s extraordinary writing continues to wow people over at Planet Cancer. Here’s an excerpt:
…wandering through the array of plants, designing my window boxes and picking out flowers for the back yard. I did it all myself. A year ago, standing in the heat would have been intolerable, and driving myself ten minutes to the nursery, unfathomable. But I did it. And I felt like Superwoman.

I realized, in amazement, that I could do it – make something beautiful, take care of something living, exert myself in the hot sun, and not collapse in a heap, crying with exhaustion. My plants are alive, and so am I.

Phillies – are killing me. Yesterday’s mid-week, day game was a great performance by ace Cole Hamels with not offense against the Dodgers’ ace Billingsly. Then we fell behind, then we came back and got the game to extra innings and then we lost. Em and I checked out a little early to miss the traffic, but not the empty feeling of disappointment. They’re starting a nice long road trip – hopefully they can figure things out away from home.
HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYBODY!!
