…and the Campus Cuties. ( I live alone. They are my only friends.)
Trust me on this one – there will be pieces for purchasing.
Can’t wait for the many exciting things.
This is such a unique and sophisticated mix. I wish I wouldn’t have fallen asleep last night and missed Will at Le Bains. Ooops. Will’s expertise is showing. I’ve recently been re-inspired to walk over to Vinymania and see what music I can find in hopes of being current and relevant. After listening to Will’s Main Course mix, I’m worried. It might be too hard…I think he bought all the good records… Give it a listen – it moves along an interesting path that seems perfectly mature to this over fifty house fan. (Wheeze) “Can you feel it?” – “yeah I feel it right here and also in my lower back and sometimes I get dizzy.” I’m feeling it.
This year, we are dedicating our coverage of the 2018 holiday windows in New York City and the Greater New York City Metropolitan Area to Cheryl Mackenzie. Do you know Cheryl? She probably knows you. I haven’t seen Cheryl in quite a while but I hope to see her everyday. Nothing so far. Cheryl? – these windows are for you, babe. Happy Holidays to you and to all of our friends who’s names do not appear on their driver’s licenses.
Let the coverage begin!
A SAD START – Christy Minstrel reports some very sad news to us tonight from the East side of Lexington Avenue and 59th St. regarding one of the Greater Metropolitan Area’s most renown annual displays. And now, the deeply troubling report…
This eew inspiring window display could do with an apology to pedestrians. This Boo-mingdales’ window silently screams, “I used glue!” and looks like nail polish smells. What happened to concepts? Too hard to grasp? Then even an idea would have done more than more is more because in fact, more is more is a bore, especially when we are at war! The Wishnik hairdo and bedazzled ladder are not worthy of comment so don’t go looking for one because you’re not going to find a comment on the Wishnik hairdo and bedazzled ladder anywhere in this post. Save yourself some time and just stop reading this right now because this post is OVAH!
Trust the British on this one.
Christy Minstrel sent this disturbing photo to me last night and although I wasn’t upset by it at first, I think it’s fair to say that this photo of B. Davis may quite possibly posses a very powerful and arresting un-named form of mental magnetism. PLEASE – for your own sake and for the sake of your friends and families,
DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY INTO HER EYES!
Personally, I was stuck on the uni-lip for most of the morning and by lunch I was onto the kid leather glove. Unfortunately, I learned about the hypnotic negative effect of this photo after I looked directly into those Bette Davis eyes. As I felt my own will draining out of me like an opened vein, I knew then that Kim Carnes was much more than an AM top forty fad. The lady was now singing my life with her song ( scratch that – wrong song.) Anyway, I guess it must have been a few hours later that I even realized those eyes had rolled me like dice. I was bruised and hungry and I had peed myself , (possibly more than once), yet still I couldn’t escape those eyes…those Bette Davis Eyes. I’m very far away from home now...Mommy? Bette?
For God’s sake, readers! Don’t make the same mistake I did! Click away while you still have the strength to swipe! Save yourselves!
( later this evening ) I am blogging this from a very lovely padded cell somewhere and I have been restrained by three very nice men and I am wearing a 1937 model canvas straight jacket (which fits like a glove!) … a glove???? Did I say a glove? A KID LEATHER GLOVE MAYBE????? AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! NURSE! NURSE!!!
( An injection is administered )
Im sorry. I’m very sorry. I feel better now, I really do… I guess I am just feeling overwhelmed by that picture of that woman…and being strapped in….I mean “restrained,” : ) can be very difficult for someone with frequent grand gestures….and….Im hugging myself. Im just hugging myself…
(crying now) It’s just so god dammed hard to keep blogging when you are typing everything with a single toe….behind your back…in a padded cell….on the floor…and it’s just so cold in here….why is it so freaking cold in here?…I sure could use a mink stole right about now. …a what??? A mink stole? Do I mean a mink stole exactly like the one IN THAT DAMMED DAVIS PIC? DO I BILLY? AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! NURSE!!!! NURSE!!!!! Dammit! She is always on her break!!!!
(overcome with a sudden calmness) – How silly of me…I know exactly how to handle that cut-rate kodachrome glossy. (giggling) It’s really so simple…
( Baby Jane voice ) ….and I will NEHVAH have tooo see that horrible pikcha again!
thanks to J.D. for this UFO headsup

So does all of this mean there is something out there? Who knows. There have been a dozen reports from the end of August through early November.
Here are some reported recent accounts of various UFO sightings in Connecticut.
“I am a stay at home mom, who has never paid much attention to UFO’s. Last Friday, my kids were still asleep in bed, when I awoke at 6 am. I was in the bathroom and it was completely dark outside. All the sudden I noticed a bright light shining in through a large window. The light was travelling slowly across the bathroom floor, which has 3 large windows in it. I noticed it immediately, as we live deep in the forest, far away from neighbors. Our house is located on 8 acres of forested land, and the bathroom is on the second floor.
I walked over to the window and looked up, and to my utter shock and amazement, I saw a gigantic rectangular shape moving slowly just above the tree line. The window was open, and I heard a low humming noise coming from it. I was awestruck as I tried to make sense of what I was witnessing. The craft was as large as a 747 airplane in length, as it slowly passed by.
I couldn’t see any of the sides or the top as it was so low down and close to our home, less then 50 feet from the house. I could only see the bottom, which was filled with rows of red and white lights. There were 3 rows of glowing illuminated white round lights the whole length of the craft on each side, for a total of 6 rows.
In between the white rows of lights were 2 rows of red glowing lights. The lights were dim, similar to car headlights pulling up in front of the house at night, but were clearly round shaped. It was only one single craft, and due to its size and low flight above our home, it blocked out the night sky as it hovered slowly past. I was frozen in the spot, and didn’t even think to run and try to capture the image on my phone, which wasn’t on me. At each of the four corners were red blinking lights.
The shape was
definitely flat and rectangular, like nothing I have ever seen in my
life.The craft glided by for about 60 long seconds, and slowly drifted
out of my line of sight, over the trees. As it got further away, the
lights turned to look bluish, and I could no longer see the detail of
the round lights. I called my husband right away, as he had already left
for work, and then I called to report it to the local police, who had
not received any other calls and didn’t know how to respond. I was very
scared to witness this, and am still having a hard time coming to terms
with it. I know it was much too large to be a drone of any type, and all
other indications about its shape, sound, height, and movement prevent
me from believing it was anything identifiable as man made,” reports a
((NUFORC Note: We spoke via
telephone with both the wife and husband, and both of them seemed to us
to be responsible, sober-minded people. We strongly suspect that the
wife’s account above is accurate, and a sincere account of a strange
“Large lit object cruising at very low altitude over Rt 34 in CT at night – no airport immediately nearby. Witnessed while driving NW on RT 34 in CT between the Stevenson Dam and Great Ring Road.Object was floating at a low altitude over Route 34, it was very large, and had many white lights along the sides. Lights were steady – not flashing.
It was way
too low and noiseless to be a 747 jet, and moving too slowly and
silently. It looked like it was only a couple hundred feet up over the
treetops. The shape was hard to describe, it looked rather rectangular
when in front of us – like a big floating platform – then appeared to be
more triangular as we passed underneath and looked back to try to get a
better look.We turned into Great Ring Road and then tried to get a
better look at it, but it was gone. There were plenty of planes in the
sky at the same time – at normal altitudes though,” reported in Sandy
“4 glowing circular objects in the North Western sky near Meriden CT. My wife called me to one of our back upstairs windows, yelling about 4 UFOs in the sky. I can confirm that she wasn’t seeing things. She saw them appear as they were white glowing circular objects in the distance. They made formations in a V shape, They also were crossing paths, i.e. 2 of the objects would “bump” off of each other or were crossing paths – unsure.
They also changed color and glowed bright red. They flew low and high, i.e. 2 we’re behind the trees in the distance, while 2 ascended and occasionally disappeared and reappeared in our sight. We don’t believe these were aircraft as they weren’t traveling in a particular direction and then they just disappeared. We called a local airport and left a message as no one answered the phone. My wife also heard a strange noise outside which is what got her attention to look out the window in the first place,” reported in Wallingford.
The NUFORC has existed since 1974 and investigates reported sightings around the world. There have been more than 90,000 reports made globally.
You may think states like New Mexico — home of the infamous 1947 Roswell “UFO crash” (actually, the Air Force said the crash involved a weather balloon, not a flying saucer) — have the most sightings. However, a report by 24/7 Wall St., which is a financial news and opinion site, suggests you’re just as likely to see E.T. in the Northeast and Northwest.
Here are the top 10 places in the country for UFO sightings per 100,000 residents.
- New Hampshire
- New Mexico
The most commonly reported UFO at 13 percent appears as a light. Others include disks, spheres, cigars, flashes and even formations.
