One of my favorite possessions: a vinyl copy of #theymightbegiants album #TheElse , signed by everyone in the band, plus one of the band members jokingly signed it "Jerry Orbach!" Or maybe he came back from the dead to sign it? One can only hope... #RIPJerry
They Might Be Giants - Flood and Flood Live In Australia
The CLASSIC 1990 TMBG album. The first one that I ever heard. The songs from Tiny Tunes Adventures. While I was living in Australia, They Might Be Giants released their album ‘Glean’, and the pressing down there had a bonus CD of them performing the album back-to-front.
“To change the end, rewrite the start. No diesel, steam, or gasoline
Let's take a ride in an electric car
Happiness resides in an electric car
You can even drive an electric car
Won't you take a ride with me?
Come on and take a ride with me” .

Before there were junk stores, before there was junk, there was James Ensor, Belgium's famous painter. He lived with his mother and repeated himself.
Ensor is considered one of the forerunners of expressionism and surrealism. He lived most of his life in Ostend, Belgium, a seaside town. His most famous work is "Entry of Christ into Brussels." Dig him up and shake his hand. Appreciate the man. #theymightbegiants

Definitely #metgala inspired... Calling this red #Micronpen technique: "bacterial expressionism"
The town of Canajoharie was incorporated 190 years ago today! This town inspired the song “Canajoharie” which appears on Join Us. The chorus of that song freaking slaps might be one of the best choruses TMBG ever made!!! #tmbg#theymightbegiants

I am in love with these Triops longicaudatus I hatched, I could watch them move all day. These “fairy shrimp” are considered living fossils, not having changed much in the past 70 MILLION years and matching their fossils almost exactly (although recent research shows their DNA is constantly evolving). They’re a freshwater crustacean with a wide distribution, known in a few locations throughout the world and from the western US. I just read a paper though that said they’ve expanded their range and have been found in rice fields in Mississippi, where they’re considered a pest. I think a species as ancient as this deserves a little more respect than that term. Until I read that article I was going to say that I can’t believe we haven’t killed this thing off yet! But now that they’re impacting crops, I’m sure we’ll find a way. They’re effective at mosquito control in the rice fields! I hope it’s their saving grace. Their name means Three-Eyed Long Tail (Triops longicaudatus). Two eyes are compound, and one is naupliar, sensing light to help with direction in the water. In the immortal words of They Might Be Giants: “Triops have 3 eyes...one that looks up...and one that looks around...and one to keep an eye on the other pair of guys.” And that’s everything I know about Triops!
I didn't expect to find a salesman drinking coffee this late in the morning.
How long you been here, Joe?
Oh, I don't know, I guess thirty, forty-five minutes maybe.
Why do you ask?
You must be making a lot of sales, piling up good income.
Oh, uh, I'm doing all right. I could do better, but
Oh haha I get it Paul. Back on that old "Time is Money" kick, right?
Not back on it, Joe, still on it. #tmbg#theymightbegiants
