Time, the Avenger

RC, AWS, DWS, Rosni Farm, 1976

Time, time, hear the bells chime
Over the harbor and the city
Time, one more vodka and lime
To help paralyze that tiny little tick, tick, tick, tick- The Pretenders

time the avenger

AWS, DWS, Shifflet's Mill, VA
Even your wife and kids
Could be gone next year
And with what you have left
Youll be forever under pressure
To support her
And a lover who looks strangely
Like time the avenger- The Pretenders

postmortem 2

Now launch the small ship, now as the body dies and life departs, launch out, the fragile soul
in the fragile ship of courage, the ark of faith with its store of food and little cooking pans
and change of clothes, upon the flood's black waste.-D.H. Lawrence

When we were children this was our absolute favorite place name. Ah! Juveniles will be juvenile.
Watch out Bumpass, the Charlottesville-Albemarle tax refugees are headed your way!

day of Pepsi

We interrupt our regular programming, day of rest, to bring you this important announcement:


I wonder if the inverse is true, is University of Virginia the official University of Pepsi? Was there money involved? Who benefits from the expenditure of the hypothetical funds?

The news comes my way via the Spring 2007 University of Virginia Magazine, page 44. Searched UVA's website to learn more of this exciting academical development. The only pertinent return from the search was an editorial from the Cavalier Daily dated 8/30/2000

(Pepsi is a trademark of PepsiCo, Inc.)

verbally challenged

Politically correct speech is tiresome.
The romantic description prevalent in years past was tiresome as well.
Too bad the measure for language can't be "what word is simplest and most effective."

day of rest

Park Lane Free Will Baptist Church
This church began life as a barn on a farm in the Fry's Spring neighborhood of Charlottesville, Virginia. It's origin evident in the agricultural v. ecclesiastical outline of the roof. Three congregations have started here. Christianity, has roots in a stable. Fitting that people of faith gather in this unassuming beautiful building.

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.- Matthew 18:20

while bob was hiding

Malcolm Holcombe is at Gravity Lounge tonight. I don't have any shorthand to adequately describe Malcolm. He is a singer. He is a songwriter. He is a creative genius.
On a good day he might do better than that. Listen.

At City Council Monday night it was mentioned that Mayor Brown is a fan of "The Wire". Mayor Brown is a Holcombe fan as well. World class taste!

the law abiding

"It became apparent with bikes, walkers, and dogs off leash that we need to provide people with some direction to stay to the right," explains Svetz, citing several incidents in which loose dogs toppled bikers." Mike Svetz

Sophie, not a scofflaw, heeds the words of Mike Svetz, walking on the right in skunk park.

the law

There is a spirit of volunteerism crucial to a City. Neighbors show consideration to one another. Underlying the voluntary effort and cooperation are a web of laws. A safety net. Occasionally the laws are enforced, when there is a violation too large to ignore.
Law is like art. Thousands of hours are spent creating the letter of the law, the code, the ordinances. And then, the body of law, the finished work, is ignored.

I find it a peculiar sensation to arrive in this country and be categorically dropped into the demographics of ?other?. At the same time, there are so many members of this demographic that ?otherness? has become a source of galvanization. - James Sham

Cooper, Smith, Cartwright. The last names the only reminders of obsolete occupations. In the darkroom for the coming month, making paper prints without photoshop. Gasp! Practicing my dead avocation. Revelateur.
