Gee I love 'Psycho', 'Hoover Factory', 'Upon a Veil of Midnight Blue' but my current favorite is 'Gigi' with Bill Frisell.

Mood Swung-Voltaire is depressing, but at least with a purpose. Cheer up Strawberries are in season, you can practically live on them-there are lovely in any possible world. Bobster-Hellman's play had shades of anti-McCarthyism. I guess it must have dated it. It just seems wrong that they threw it a...

I think Candide and Martin represent pre and post war Voltaire. Each, of course, exaggerated to make a point. I do think he was much more Martin in the end though. Everyone's a suspect and everyone is corrupt. He means it! Voltaire seems to say 'sancitfy yourself and retreat from the world' rather t...

Costellopunk-You are burnt out and emotionally drained. Yet, I sense a champion of 'lost' causes. Have your friend read the poem. You can't give if there's nothing left to give someone.

Voltaire scathed every imaginable school of thought! He is forever the disillusioned optimist, Martin-even rejecting 'the best of all possible worlds' theories finds no comfort in the book's truth. El Dorado is boring and a life of debauchery ruins the only constant, be it ascetic beauty, throughout...

Bambooneedle-I was teasing, about the other person. I wouldn't be nervous to meet him and as for a kiss on the lips, I doubt it, he's engaged. A kiss is a form of greeting for me, so no one's in for much! I'd be equal to him after a show or a chance meeting on the street. In awe of his talent either...
