still waiting for my food pills, transcript posted by the author. I wasn't impressed by the spheres in apple juice. The caramel stuff was O.K. Very interesting introduction to Post-Modern Cuisine. I was hoping for something on how compact foodstuff can be created for space travel etc.
Youtube link of Howard Waldrop reading near midnight Saturday, after Poland. He was having trouble with his eyes. Read part of a scary Hansel & Gretl en route to what seemed like an Auschwitz analog. Then read complete "The Bravest Girl I Ever Knew" a fake Hollywood memoir about King Kong actress. (I was very sleepy, but I'd heard such raves about HW, I stuck it out... I kept thinking 1) it was almost over 2) it would have a point.)
Another youtube link of Samuel R. Delany Interviews Katherine MacLean. Watch Spencer fix the microphones because I forgot to.
