first, oh oh oh.

went back to the downed tree in daylight. owl wrought hecatomb. full of gopher slain. and wormy acorns. a tremendous lot of walnuts. the little twigs are leafing out. someone should tell them....

enjoying malkmus and the jicks.

something reminded me the other day about my blue eye conjecture. i used to think (when quite small) that people with blue eyes see everything tinted. what stunted logic. my vision was never confined to sepia so how'd i come to such a conclusion? it must be common to children though. i'm not the only one.

none of this makes a figure in a letter. but i report it anyway. i'm likely to remember the big and marvellous without aid. sometime i might want to remember the small and incidental though.

now playing: it kills-- stephen malkmus.

there's a very pregnant nanny goat across town. chocolatey ears on a creamy whole. the owner is an old woman with long white braids and overalls. she sells the kids. i wonder if she sells milk? i could get behind that. i love fresh goat milk. i love guernsey cream more. maybe she has one of those too.

trying to imagine a wide blue world. trying to imagine a sepia one. it'll occupy me for some time.

snapped off some lilac lilacs in the alley. so nice.

to walk now.

We saw Malkmus w/Pavement in... 19--. Crooked Rain Crooked Rain tour, we kept calling out for Slanted and Enchanted songs. Somebody kept yelling, 'Can I get a Conduit For Sale!?' It was a great show. I played Slanted over and over. What was I talking about? I haven't heard post-Pave Malkmus though. Laziness. Stop looking through the blue (eyes) after a while and everything will look orange-y. Sepia... I suppose you'd see kind of a greenish color once that color had been lifted. I'm just sayin'.

we are reverses. my malkmusian experience excludes all pavement but a song here and there in somebody's car. i like malkmus a lot but have just the one album (face the truth) and a few tracks on my computer. i'm especially fond of pink india.

"...a greenish color once that color had been lifted." it's most likely true. but i most likely won't try to secure the truth by experiment. i'm just sayin'. :)

when i was about 12 years old, i was in the company of two blue-eyed 12-year-olds (my friends), and we ran into a blue-eyed 16-year-old and her blue-eyed friends in the neighborhood. that 16-yr-old, however the conversation developed, said that all brown-eyed people are ugly. (i have dark brown eyes.) without realizing it, i accepted that as a given until one day it occurred to me somehow that eye color had nothing to do with pretti/ugliness. it still seems strange to me that that happened, both the incident and that i believed that ridiculous conjecture.

i've never heard anyone say specifically that one eye color makes beauty while another makes ugly. but i do know people who say they are only attracted to a specific eye/hair color configuration. how terribly boring. maybe i'm greedy this way but i think the more eye/hair color configurations i get to admire the better. and nose shapes. and arm shapes. and ass shapes. etc. etc. ;)
