Weekend Plans

With the recent announcement about ivory-billed woodpeckers in Florida, I can hardly contain my excitement for this weekend's excursion to Maine for a cryptozoology adventure. Bates Colllege's art museum has been hosting an exhibit called Cryptozoology: Out of Time Place Scale, with various artifacts and artwork. It's the closing reception, so hopefully it'll be a real party. There's supposed to be some speakers, and hopefully wine and cheese. Amy Hunt and Eric Emm are on board for the trip.

I'm especially excited to see Alexis Rockman's paintings. He's featured prominently in Carnivorous Nights: On the Trail of the Tasmanian Tiger which is written by a journalist couple who bring along their friend Rockman on a trip to search for Thylacines. They describe Alexis as a real stoner and charismatic guy. Who isn't, though?
