Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:00am Jim the Poet:

A Noiseless Patient Spider
A noiseless patient spider,
I mark’d where on a little promontory it stood isolated,
Mark’d how to explore the vacant vast surrounding,
It launch’d forth filament, filament, filament, out of itself,
Ever unreeling them, ever tirelessly speeding them.

And you O my soul where you stand,
Surrounded, detached, in measureless oceans of space,
Ceaselessly musing, venturing, throwing, seeking the spheres to connect them,
Till the bridge you will need be form’d, till the ductile anchor hold,
Till the gossamer thread you fling catch somewhere, O my soul.

The Spider
by Emily Dickinson

A spider sewed at night
Without a light
Upon an arc of white.
If ruff it was of dame
Or shroud of gnome,
Himself, himself inform.
Of immortality
His strategy
Was physiognomy.
  8:03am Toothgrinder Tom:

It’s ruff was pushing ahead of the dame.

Remember Shakira’s star turn in Zootopia as ‘Gazelle’? What, you don’t?
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:13am happymaan:

My wife is always asleep during this show, but WFMU is playing in the bedroom. Every Saturday morning she says she doesn't remember hearing the show, but has odd memories of cats meowing. Once she asked me why their were kittens under the window while she was still half sleeping.

Thx, Amanda. A special GRRRRRR!!! for you!

i like me some oingo boingo sometimes. 'stay' is a great song.
  8:15am Rob from Maryland:

Good morning! Getting here really late. I see that I missed Flipper! And the Residents.
  8:15am Kpx not in Cincinnati:

Hoarding toilet paper never made any sense. Because there was never any proof of documented evidence that having covid gave anyone the runs. There were other popular items that were unnecessarily hoarded as well, I just can't remember which ones they were.

@Kpx Spam singles are still nearly impossible to find.
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:19am dale:

if we get into raven territory i hope it's not lou reed reading it. homer simpson did it much betterer.
  8:20am Rob from Maryland:

@Kpx, the toilet paper buying might have been because store hours were/could be reduced and supply chain issues?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21am Amanda:

We are using this Residents CD as our talkover music this week, so you can still hear some

The animated film that accompanies "meow" is super Halloween-y fer sher! (And genuinely scary!)
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:40am Jim the Poet:

She seems pretty great, Kathleen!
  8:40am Kpx not in Cincinnati:

I would love to adopt a cat, especially that one that kind of sounds strangely like my own personality. But where I live it doesn't allow pets, and the area is not a safe place for pets
Avatar 8:41am HyperDose:

I could clone myself, but then I'd be twice as broke! 😋

hate to say it but i was a munsters guy over the addams family.

The Addams family theme just reminded me of this short series of episodes called adult Wednesday Addams on YouTube that I stumbled across. Has anyone else seen it. If not check it out.

I don't even remember seein Addams Family until I got older, in my little PNW town, the TVs all had The Munsters. Dig their theme song!

Happy Halloween! Thanks, Jim and Amanda! Our cats and spiders enjoyed the show.
  8:58am Rob from Maryland:

Happy Halloween everyone!
  8:58am Kpx not in Cincinnati:

@dale: I don't know what you thought about it, but I really like it. It had really good production quality for an extreme low budget homemade project. And the woman who portrayed Wednesday had a remarkable resemblance to Christina Ricci, she was actually shut down by the franchise owners of AF.
  8:58am Rob from Maryland:

And thanks, Amanda and Jim, for this Halloween-themed show.
