"The Stock Bridge Pottery"
She spelled it "Alice," and you could have anything you want--'ceptin Alice!

Some of my favorite shows on TV for ever have been on
PBS. In Dearborn it was channel 56 and you always get
stuff about artists, writers, show people, and
musicians. Up here it comes from Northern Michigan
University. Just gettin home from wally world tonight
there is a cool bit with Arlo and some family doing a
tour just so they could see each other for a while. I
like how the programing plays some music and then
interviews with the artists. Arlo's aunt has Woody's
archives in New York with about 3,500 other songs yet
to be put to music. Woody only recorded about 100
songs. Guess she is looking for anybody with a little
talent to have a go at singing what now is a bunch of
"poems". Mountain Stage usually has the folksi'er
singers with something important to say and Austen
City Limits the rockin stompin lets have a party on
the ground kinda jammin. Lots of the music I like when
I hear it but have a hard time recalling what it was,
say maybe if I wanted to add a soundtrack to some
video that needs mixing. The best I could do by myself
is about 20 minutes on Sugar Babe, the acoustic
guitar, and about the same plugged in to Billy Mon,
unless my ears go numb as that thing that happens when
ya pick up an electric guitar takes over and the
ceiling floats away revealing the colors behind my
eyeballs. Some day I might get up enough nerve and
post some jams on youtube but, well you know....
So... so far after reading a bunch of online
troubleshooting Q&A I finally figured out a way around
the "save to my computer" hanging up thing by going
through the file menu. And there was that matter of
getting off my dead brain cells and moving tons of
files to the exterior hard drive for safe keeping.
With all that free space and staying inside where it's
warm now might be a good time to make a bunch of
shorts from movies I shot so far of building the U.P.
Hobagama from the beginning but for now this piece is
about a simple heavy plastic sheet rolled on a stout
stick for a temporary covering and the sculptures they
I found the way I work building most of the kiln
before deciding on the more permanent structure of the
rain cover is closer to the weather and rhythm of the
seasons. Now would also be a good time to take a
ski-about to the Cedar swamp to look for blow downs.
My hours next week got cut major enough to give me
time to give some to clay. So stay in there eh!

Speaking of Arlo,
Here's a Trivia Q. for the potters..
What was the name of the pottery business (ps. I dont have the answer)
that was in Allise's Resturant (however she spelled it). Arlo picks up
his new girlfriend from work. She was making bowls thrown on a hump. I
remember another scene and they were stoking a kiln with wood..
I do remember a sign that showed the name, but it's blank in my head
(something like 'stoney' something?)... or is that just me?
