    Tom was there in spirit! He propelled us via his psychic energy to laugh laugh laugh!
    cheers pals!

  5. I finally listened to the whole piece while walking the dog. Wow, two of the wackiest laughs I’ve ever heard. Fun. Almost opposite and complementary! Some great comments. I absolutely LOVE the Tirana mayor-artist discussion and the parkinglot biennale. I want to be in the parking lot show! Emocionuese!
