Heels and Heads

"I can see all women personified in them, every woman I've ever known and loved, embedded and embodied in these five archetypes. Is it pathetic to be getting misty-eyed over a freakin' *Go-Gos video?* Don't answer that."

Edgar Cayce

Kentucky's "sleeping prophet" turns out to be even nuttier than I thought he was:

"Cayce taught that an alien civilization on the planets of Arcturus is one of the most advanced in this galaxy. He described it a "fifth-dimensional civilization that is a prototype of Earth's future". From this, an entire army of spinoff UFO religions devoted to the Arcturians sprouted in the subsequent century, with many post-Cayce wannabe-channelers claiming to be Arcturians themselves, such as Commander Theda."


Toulouse-inations Poster

"I was pulled in all directions and losing my mind, feeling like Geoffrey Tennant in any given episode of Slings and Arrows."

I Heard the Voice of a Pork Chop

"I dreamt I was sittin' in a swell cafe, hungry as a bear.
My stomach sent a telegram to my throat: "There's a wreck on the road somewhere."
I heard the voice of a pork chop say: "Come unto me and rest."
Well you talk about your stewing beans, I know what's the best.
You can talk about your chicken, ham and eggs, turkey stuffed and dressed,
But I heard the voice of a pork chop say "Come unto me and rest."
