    [07:57] iwandertoo Resident: ...things find a way of working out
    [07:57] Dash Earthboy: at the PaB session here yesterday I spoke of feeling soiled by the racism and other denegration I had dumped on me yesterday at a barbershop
    [07:57] iwandertoo Resident: racism...?
    [07:57] iwandertoo Resident: sorry to hear this
    [07:58] Dash Earthboy: yes redneck ignorance manifested as social norm here
    [07:58] Dash Earthboy: contempt for anybody with intelligence who isn't racist like them
    [07:59] Dash Earthboy: it's even in the government and churches
    [07:59] iwandertoo Resident: sorry to hear this, Dash
    [07:59] Dash Earthboy: along with the "poor talk" and other fraud
    [07:59] Dash Earthboy: yeah, in the 21st century US, it's ridiculous
    [08:01] Dash Earthboy: how's your coffee?
    [08:01] iwandertoo Resident: needs to be refilled :)

    [08:08] Dash Earthboy: i've been having them in salads, on baked potatos, in omelets (extra large organic free range brown eggs for 79 cents / doz)
    [08:08] Dash Earthboy: in rice, in sandwiches

    [08:10] Dash Earthboy: and one of my stores only has those deals on Wed mornings
    [08:10] Dash Earthboy: like the eggs, mushrooms, etc...this past Wed gal of 2% milk for $1.49
    [08:11] Dash Earthboy: honey nut cheerios for $1.25
    [08:11] Dash Earthboy: 15 large bananas for $1.49
    [08:11] iwandertoo Resident: pretty amazing
    [08:12] Dash Earthboy: so w/milk, cereal and bananas I got myself 12 wholesome breakfasts for less than $4.25!
    [08:12] iwandertoo Resident: :)
    [08:12] Dash Earthboy: and bananas to spare for banana splits or on PB sandwiches
    [08:12] Dash Earthboy: yah
    [08:13] Dash Earthboy: well, my first year of college, out in Salt Lake City, I started a food coop to help me save money and get more choice of local food
    [08:14] iwandertoo Resident: how did it go?
    [08:14] Dash Earthboy: i'm good with money, food, etc. but you'd never know it from my condition here
    [08:14] iwandertoo Resident: sorry?
    [08:14] Dash Earthboy: the food coop thrived
    [08:14] Dash Earthboy: not sure if it's still going or not...it's been awhile
    [08:16] iwandertoo Resident: where will you travel to first?
    [08:18] Dash Earthboy: i'm trying to decide whether to head directly west through B'ham or veer down toward New Orleans near Frenchie...i'd like to actually meet her
    [08:18] iwandertoo Resident: New Orleans...great city
    [08:18] iwandertoo Resident: but also...hard
    [08:18] Dash Earthboy: i've had some others in SL invite me to meet too
    [08:19] Dash Earthboy: tell me about New Orleans?

    [08:19] iwandertoo Resident: i've only been once recently - not so recent actually
    [08:19] iwandertoo Resident: but what i know through others who have lived there - they loved it
    [08:20] iwandertoo Resident: the economy isnt great, but music wise you can usually find something
    [08:20] iwandertoo Resident: there's a lot of survival work...
    [08:20] iwandertoo Resident: meaning, you can find ad hoc jobs to get you through
    [08:20] iwandertoo Resident: (I have a friend in SF who has artsy friends)
    [08:20] Dash Earthboy: cool
    [08:21] iwandertoo Resident: the history is amazing, the architecture, the food...lots to see and do
    [08:21] Dash Earthboy: i have a pretty fair music background
    [08:21] Dash Earthboy: including having a summer long concert series sponsored by Brooklyn Art & Culture Assoc long ago
    [08:22] iwandertoo Resident: i have a friend in NY right now, when she gets back I can ask her for her friends email and forward it along to you
    [08:22] iwandertoo Resident: she travels around a lot but her homebase is New Orleans (I think)
    [08:22] iwandertoo Resident: at least she could give you some insight
    [08:23] Dash Earthboy: but here, when I approached this little county's art assoc, they said if I didn't have recent CD to promote, no performance on the little square
    [08:23] Dash Earthboy: yes I would like to contact your friend!
    [08:23] iwandertoo Resident: this seems odd

    [08:24] iwandertoo Resident: San Francisco has this area down by the seaside where people just show-up and play drums
    [08:24] iwandertoo Resident: I havent been there for a bit - but still believe it is happening
    [08:24] Dash Earthboy: those places are so neat!

    [08:25] iwandertoo Resident: bay area has a lot of small groups that aggregate together - random people show-up places and just play music. i was eating out the other night, and there was a guy with a banjo, another with a guitar - actually two. just playing on the corner

    [08:25] Dash Earthboy: it's nice when one can do that
