By coincidence, I just read that quote!

That's agreat quote. When they put the Looney Tunes on DVD, I bought one set for myself and one set for my grandson. I grew up with them. It seems a shame my grandson should not have the same privilege!

More starlight-in-a-bottle from Mr. Bradbury. With his gift for capturing the evanescent savors of childhood, of course he would pluck one of my most treasured childhood mindscapes, like a dandelion seed caught on the wing, and hold it up, shining and noteworthy, to a distracted world?

Did Ray ever visit Termite Terrace? Did he and Chuck Jones ever shoot the breeze?

Groovista, did Ray and Chuck Jones ever shoot the breeze? Read this interview from the April, 1968 issue of PSYCHOLOGY TODAY, and consider the breeze shot! Enjoy!

"Eccentricity is not, as dull people would have us believe, a form of madness. It is often a kind of innocent pride, and the man of genius and the aristocrat are frequently regarded as eccentrics because genius and aristocrat are entirely unafraid of and uninfluenced by the opinions and vagaries of the crowd."

- Edith Sitwell

Does this mean I'm a genius? Because I'm sure not an aristocrat! (or even an aristocat)

Nard: there you are! I just called and no answer. But Zee called me with the information I needed so I'm all good.

Carry on quoting.
