    Excellent review. I think you understand Mr Bird and the Birdverse as well as anyone not in direct contact with him. I am surprised that he did so much of the same material but that would not have mattered to me either. It’s never quite the same. Also, I heard elsewhere that the new Section 8 City / Take Courage is something to behold. I wish I could have been there. Thank you so much.

    Thanks you for this great review. One of the reasons I love your reviews is how they articulate the reasons why I (also most people I guess) love him, reasons I seem to know but don’t know how to say. What he revealed about “Fitz and the Dizzyspells” is indeed stunning personal, just how forthcoming can he get? I still don’t feel I comprehend it…completely. I guess people never do with Bird.

    A good review you wrote, as well! I almost used that same quote from Thursday, “unburdened by concepts.” Were you the photographer who met my photographer, Andrew from St. Louis?
