Queenscape: The door to nowhere


A scene in lower Ridgewood. It's rather depressing, isn't it?

Wow! Ridgewoodian is sure down on his luck! His only personal effect left is a door? Perhaps we should pass a hat around for him?

I don't get it. Does this door have any significance?

Wade--

Now who's obsessed with whom? I've barely posted in a couple of weeks yet I'm still under your skin. You can be honest with me: you call out my name while making love to Mrs. Wade, don't you?

Anyway, I'm sure you'll be happy to know that, no, I haven't reached that extreme. Yet. If anything, I have too much crap. But we're still living in a GOP kleptocracy, dearheart, so I'm sure it's only a matter of time. A money hat would be, in the parlance of my New England homeland, wicked awesome! Thanks!

It's like, the door of perception, man!! Groovy......far out!!!!!

Ah, Ridgewoodian! It's great to hear once again from my bête noire!

How was the film festival? Did you see the film on a Friday? If so, I was in the vicinity, attending the US premiere of Manuel Göttsching's piece "E2-E4" at Lincoln Center. The rain drove away many, but it was still an enjoyable evening.

As for the GOP influence on your living standard, if Baroque O'Blarney is elected, the socialist redistribution of income will only get WORSE.

And no, I don't support McCain either. I've stated my preference for Ron Paul in the past, and state it here again!

Alas, for various reasons I wasn't able to see any of the Lindsay Anderson's. But I did see "Vicky Christina Barcelona" and "Tropic Thunder" as an odd double feature.

I'm not familiar with Manuel Göttsching but I'll look into him. I bought, yesterday, a pair of tickets for the Washington National Opera's "Ring des Nibelungen" next November.

As for Obama: "socialist redistribution"? Please, Wadester, join us here in the 21st Century. Not even the Communists are communists anymore. It's over. It's done. You might as well call him a Pelagian or a Free Silverite. History has moved on to other debates. Anyway, I'll take the risk.

As for Ron Paul, yes, he has one or two good ideas - like getting the hell out of Iraq. Too bad he has lots of bad ones, like getting out of the U.N. Kinda reminds me of you: occasionally incisive but mostly a nut.
