When an entire class of elementary school kids gets on stage to half-ass a performance on their recorders for their parents in the audience, would that technically be dissonant/freeform/chaotic enough to qualify as musique concrete? Was I accidentally a noise musician for a day in 3rd grade? Are all elementary school music teachers really just radical outsider artists on the low?

Saw this car parked on the street today.  This person must really need a door!  … I’m not sure how they’ll see to drive home, though.  It this legal? 

Can’t decide if it’s brilliant or utterly stupid.

Collard Greens Wrap

So I finally attempted to make a wrap using collard greens tonight and it may have been the best thing I’ve eaten in years.  I used this recipe as a base… which really means I just used her directions for preparing the collard greens part.  I soaked mine in warm water with a capful of Bragg’s raw apple cider vinegar.

I filled it with hummus, shredded carrot, sunflower seeds, thinly sliced cucumber, thinly sliced red onion, black pepper and a splash of Bragg’s liquid aminos.

It was so delicious, I’m posting about it on my non-food-blog Tumblr.  —next time I make it I’ll take pictures.

Yard sale

Had a yard sale today in preparation for moving in two weeks.  The rule was that nothing came back into the house.  Now everything that didn’t sell is outside waiting to be picked up by the VVA tomorrow.

All the neighbors came out of the woodwork to chat. The woman who always pretends she doesn’t see me was suddenly smiley as she bought my dining room table.  She even giggled about the neighbor who never stops talking. 

The neighbor who never stops talking, told me a long ghost story, bought a pack of tarot cards and then told me she didn’t know how to use them (so I sold her some books on Tarot).

The Pleiadian neighbor told me she wanted to start volunteering at the same places I do.

The guy who moved in directly next door two months ago suddenly opened up, told me his best LSD stories, offered all the neighbors homemade vodka and tried to give me a dildo (“still in the box, never used! My friend ordered it, but gave it to me when she saw how big it was”).

The sale was blah, I looked at the hours I put into it and realized that in the end I made minimum wage, but my house is significantly emptier.  I’m seriously sunburned, but it was worth the misfit-toy camaraderie that my neighbors are finally starting to offer …now that I’m moving out of the neighborhood.

"Karma is not fatalism. It is not an arbitrary and external agency which makes personal effort of no avail. On the contrary, the theory places one’s evolution in one’s own hands completely, and even death does not interfere with the progress of effort."
