Slim,

I'm sure that your building skills exceed my own. I made the whole thing with a $9 hand saw with a miter box, a good electric drill, a Dremel tool, a screwdriver, and a lot of epoxy putty, sandpaper, adhesives and paint. A friend with a drill press helped with drilling through metal parts. It's a wild ride, the strangest scavenger hunt you ever went on. Go for it.

Yours,

Paul

Is that Tom Palmer's Famous Flea Act? It's delightful. Get a copy of Bill Ballantine's Wild Tigers and Tame Fleas too.

Yours,

Harley,

Isn't that wild? T.A. Waters, of Mind, Myth, and Magic fame, was the outside talker at Huberts in Times Square for a while, according to Ricky Jay in Jay's Journal of Anomalies.

Yours,

Paul

There was no outside talker at Hubert's. I think T.A. did magic there.

I just saw a reference somewhere to TA being there, as were many others. I thought it was about him being a talker. But I've gone through several feet of books in the last month, most more than once, and have no idea where the mention was.

Diane Arbus spent time there. Lenny Bruce was an habituee. Etc.

There is a new film being shot called Fur. It's the Diane Arbus story with Micole Kidman playing the part. I think some of us will be involved in the Huberts/Ringling Bros. Sideshow scenes.

Oooh...maybe they'll need some 'zibits!

The Arbus' story could be a good one if done right.
Did anyone here ever see 'Basquiat'? (1996) Truely worthwhile.

Some of us might be involved in other scenes too.

I've read the script, and it's interesting. Some of her life themes are developed, though not in a context that's historically accurate.

sadness is, so what...what did we do with it but cut budgets and not go back. China will be mining the Lunar surface and the Euro's will be building a Disneyland in a crater before we get back there.

Shame...there was so much promise as well as tech advances and scientific offshoots...but we listened to Politicians and short sighted pin heads. Morons.


Actually, the reason we havn't gone back (nor any other country) is because we did not find any water - it would not be effecient to launch our own water into space for a lunar coloney. Water is heavy, unless we can find a water source on the moon ... or figure out a way to launch it into space cheaply ... nobody will be mining the surface of the moon.

There is still hope of finding water on the moon, NASA has a mandate to return to the moon to explore it further. Radio Shack has sponsored the program, and they will get their logo on the rover and have the rights to publish a video game that simulates the project. Their annual conference is coming up in July:

As for the flea circus stuff, I'm finding myself attracted to the idea ... I've never actually seen a fake flea circus, yet alone a "real" one - but I can see it's entertainment value. I love talking already, this could be a nice niche for me. Hmmmm <wheels start spinning> ...
