I've been looking at this for decades, for it is prominent in the night sky during my birth month. I now plan to learn relative distances of each star.

Pretending to Speak English

Saw this at WFMU - a French friend in high school pretended to speak English - weird.....

Another great example is some of Love Psychedelic Orchestra's work...

Slide Wheel From TV Viewer

I got my hands on a little tiny TV viewer a several years ago and it shortly flew to flinders after being in the hands of my tiny child. The kind that looks similar to this:

I kept the slide wheel inside and today threw it in the scanner at 4800 ppi and got this, which when clicked, gives a "beefed up" version - still really tough to see.....

I lusted after these things when I was little. The plot goes like this:

A Picnic Story with a Frog a Mouse an Ant and a Lady - Bird
  1. All Bound For Picnic
  2. Frog Jumping Into Water Says Lets Cross This River
  3. The Frog Sarcastically "Why Can't You All Follow"
  4. The Others Made A Plan To Cross Because They Couldn't Swim
  5. The Chick Brought A Leaf
  6. The Mouse A Walnut Shell
  7. The Ant A Straw
  8. The Lady - Bird A Thread
  9. In a Few Minutes A Boat Was Built
  10. The Boat Was Launched
  11. All On Board Safe Mr. Frog Wet And Angry

Poem selection

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream — and not make dreams your master;
If you can think — and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And — which is more — you'll be a Woman my daughter!

-Rudyard Kipling
