cwmoss Today I was in a place called Reading Reptile. It houses books that makes adults slow down for a moment, and read loud and quiet and in different voices, and lets kids smile and dream and sometimes sleep. I met the people who run it, Debbie and Pete. They told me about this great thing they're working on to give Kansas City a living museum to children's literature. They're gonna call it the Rabbit Hole. Imagine big paper mâché sculptures of all of your favorite kids books overlapping into each other's worlds. A timeline you could walk through. It'll be that and more, linking the influences of one author to another decades apart. They just started making things official. Paper work is happening tomorrow. Signatures, et al. They're approaching and getting big donors. It'll be the first one of its kind in the country. Nothing like it. And this is why I love KC. Now, in the image this is a frog reading above one of the many book-related worlds Debbie has sculpted to show future money givers. I can't wait to see what this becomes. Long live Pete and Debbie. 2d

cwmoss And this is Charlie, aka #PopUpCharlie, and he will be another leader in whatever tonight will be. Expect to walk out with about 20 offensive, unusable, not-at-all helpful holiday-related cards. There will be cider. There will be heat. Come one, come y'all. Even Jews. Especially Jews. Maybe Christians. 15 bucks. 2d

cwmoss I met a woman named Lauren Tweedie who co-makes clothing as @girlfridaykc. She likes Dries van Noten, Dusen Dusen, and Annie Lee Larson. (I'm concerned she might actually be family because so many of our interests overlapped.) She hand-makes all her prints and dresses, which I'm all about. Long live the excellently named Ms. Tweedie. 3d

cwmoss Nick and Catherine said I had to see Union Station. Nick had to mail some shirts, so Catherine and I walked around. The place is grand in the way that lots of union stations are, with ceilings you can't see unless you look up and forever-echoing feet on the floors. In the main hall, empty except for children running around in the empty space, she told me that this place used to crumble and shed in unsafe ways. That when a small group of women came together to big-s Save the place, they would host balls in the main hall. That these people would dance and drink and smile in their fancy attire. But in hard hats, because the ceiling was always falling. Little pieces and big. I ask Catherine if people ever decorated their hard hats to match their attire, but she wasn't sure. I'm just gonna pretend she said they did. 3d

cwmoss It's with a very heavy heart that I announce my retirement from the polka-dotted miniature chair business. It was a very difficult decision, but I think it's the right one. I'm looking forward to spending more time with my family, and learning card tricks to impress my friend Joey. 5d

  •   cwmoss lol @craigbogey very economical 7d
  •   craigbogey 'It is possible to eat your placenta either raw or cooked. You can fry it up with some onions and eat it that way or you can cut up small slivers and mix it with fruit and yoghurt for a placenta smoothie.' Think I'd opt for the smoothie. 7d

cwmoss I learned this week that many people consider Frank Sinatra's album 'In the Wee Small Hours' one of the first concept albums of all-time. I love all-time as a word, cause it usually means the last like 90 years. But it gets used anyway. Like in weird slideshows about 'The Greatest Fashion Looks of All-Time', but those slideshows never show Romans in their togas or Samurais or peasants in (Seinfeld's) puffy shirt. I wish they would. All-time would be a lot more fun. Anyways, back to Sinatra -- so the album was made mostly in February 1955, between the dissolution of his first marriage to Nancy Barbato and his newfound problems with Ava Gardner, his also future ex-wife. Now sometimes when I hear people talk about Drake and being an emotional artist, I think of Sinatra's Small Hours. (I didn't abbreviate it as Wee Small there, did you notice? Aren't you proud of me?) My favorites are the title track and I'll Be Around. (pause) Let's wait for a little more rain. 1w
  •   jmann8907 @cwmoss Guthrie's "Dust Bowl Ballads" is also an example of one of the first earliest concept albums. Also, I am proud of your shortening. 'Wee' wouldve also sufficed. 1w
