Well, as all two of you may have noticed, I'm three days behind now! So for the time being I'm going to be posting just the essentials of the content here: the image-collage, the list, and that extra-special text you find at the end. I'll probably be in this mode for a few days, until I can get caught up. So, check back later to see if I might by chance have said something mildly interesting. Thanks for reading, and looking, and above all listening! – Papa Pic

P.S. Actually, there is one comment I'd like to add off the top of my head Re: Constant Lambert. For God sakes, man, can't you wait until the orchestra goes on break before lighting up?
