My Little Corner of the World

oldopthis is the corner of 80th and santa fe. it’s part of the route weekdays on my way to work. yesterday on my way back home from work i stopped at the culinary center to see if they wanted me to beep for local life in the month of may. they said “yes!” and gave me a free lunch. after eating gourmet sesame chicken and pasta, i stopped at vinyl renaissance and bought a joe jackson record for $2. my last stop was at associated radio where they sell CB’s, ham radios, and accessories. i dropped off a circuit board for them to repair so i can hook it back up to the veggies next week.

Facebook Goes Beep

Invitation To Beep… Accepted!

julie me and angiea few weeks ago the culinary center of kansas city asked if i could play musical vegetables by their front entrance, and help them celebrate national cheeseball day. i said “yes!” and dragged all of my stuff to the curb friday night, including a theremin (that’s the white thing that angie is playing), a milk crate full of fruits and vegetables provided by the culinary center, and a circuit bent speak and math just to keep things weird. this is what it sounds like when you play with your food.

IUAH Beep Blog Complete

hunter-plane1last month i wrote my fifth blog entry for interurban arthouse. this completes the series that started last fall about how i got the rocket grant for beep goes the weasel. since that time IUAH has connected me with the overland park farmer’s market, the johnson county library, and the culinary center of kansas city. i just want to say thanks to nick, nicole, lauren, and all the good people at IUAH.

Wonderfulness Found

me and billback in the late 1970′s when we were growing up my sister and i listened to bill cosby’s album, wonderfulness, more times than i can remember. on that album cosby talks about the chicken heart, his tonsils, go karts, and so much more. we listened to it every chance we could… until she took it to school one day and accidentally left it in direct sunlight. the heat warped the vinyl until it looked like a potato chip. fast forward to the 21st century: i found this album in the discount bin at vinyl renaissance for $2. wonderfulness can spin again!
