1. This special video was made for Mruti to celebrate his 70th birthday... which, like everything else, is just around the corner.

    What does it matter that no one but he and me understand. We two white-robed laymen walk through the bodhi-fields inviting everyone to join!

    Row, row, row your boat
    Gently down the stream.
    Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily…
    Life is but a dream.

    — With love, Yochi

  2. Here is an off-the-cuff recitation of "The Owl and the Pussycat" by Edward Lear (1812-1888.) It is well-know and perhaps well-loved, but my limited observations through the years have shown him uninteresting. This poem clearly shows him the great grand-daddy of Seuss, Silverstein, and others.

    I've made this for my grandchildren, but perhaps it will encourage others to do better and read more to their children and grandchildren.

  3. Recorded at Unison (a Community Supported Arts Center) in New Paltz, NY on Saturday night 21 November 2009. This was a very funny evening with the hippest deconstructionists west of the Hudson. Here is a 60 second excerpt from the evening show, intended to promote their CD sales during the intermission. A precautionary tale, yes. Self-deprecation has its limits, but this, well... like everything else they do, is plain hilarious. They are "biologically incorrect, fiscally challenged, and barely fundable." (But that's what they say about themselves. You can't trust everything they say.)
