where the body rests
Weird weather. Last night at 2 a.m. it was 61 degrees; now it's 23 degrees and snowflakes are falling. The cold front mocks me.
So it turns out the universe isn't green after all; it's a pallid beige. Or maybe ecru. They're taking suggestions for a better name at the website.

The other thing I forgot to mention about the Richter exhibit is that they had the candle painting used by Sonic Youth for the cover of Daydream Nation, three or four feet across and occupying its own wall. It was one of those moments where you turn the corner and go, "Oh, there's that." And Kim Gordon's monologue at the start of "The Sprawl" is taken from Denis Johnson's The Stars at Noon. It's all coming together.
