The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death: Reflections on Revenge, Germophobia, and Laser Hair Removal


The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death: Reflections on Revenge, Germophobia, and Laser Hair Removal



Laurie Notaro has an uncanny ability to attract insanity–and leave readers doubled over with laughter. In The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death, she experiences the popular phenomenon of laser hair removal (because at least one of her chins should be stubble-free); bemoans the scourge of the Open Mouth Coughers on America’s airplanes; welcomes the newest ex-con (yay, a sex offender!) to her neighborhood; and watches, against her own better judgment, every Discovery Health Channel special on parasites and tapeworms that has ever aired–resulting in an overwhelming fear that a worm the size of a python will soon come a-knocking on her back door.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer says that Laurie Notaro is “a scream, the freak-magnet of a girlfriend you can’t wait to meet for a drink to hear her latest story.” With The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death, Notaro proves she’s not only funny but resigned to the fact that you can’t look bad ass in a Prius. Don’t even try.

The Sweetwater River




The Sweetwater River





It is said that pioneers coined the orginal description of the Platte River above the Missouri River "Too thin to plow. Too thick to drink".

They must have loved following the Sweetwater River up to the edge of the South Pass crossing of the Continental Divide. It led them along past Independence Rock and Devil's Gate - - along the way. This is looking west upriver, where Wyoming highway 28 crosses the Sweetwater River. Notice the bright willow along the shoreline.


Those of you who have read my profile or know my inclinations, know that I love to read the history of an area; go see it; then read more about what I have seen when I return.

In some places, I get the feeling I can actually hear and see the historic events that have taken place as I gaze at unchanged landscapes. It is a very precious thing for me to visit places - - where "history " was made and happened.

So it is with South Pass in Wyoming. I have been here many times and learn something new each time, but I always enjoy the large scale landscape of the area and to sit and watch where so many amazing people passed and so much American history took place.

South Pass is a high, but broad wide passage across the Continental Divide. You can clearly see where pioneers walked, rode horses, pulled hand carts or steered their oxen pulled wagons.

There are cement markers at the crossing and little else. The markers list the four major "trails" or "routes" that used this passage:

Oregon Trail from 1848 - 1868 (As early as 1836 Narcissa Whitman and Eliza Spalding became the first pioneer women to cross the South Pass route).

California Trail from 1841- 1869 (Missouri to California route used heavily during the 1849 gold rush in California). Last year I visited the City of Rocks in Idaho, where those, who were successful, passed through that area on the same California Trail.

Mormon Trail from 1846 - 1857 (The route the LDS took to Salt Lake City - - many pulling hand carts - - two groups hit by winter conditions near Casper, Wyoming lost many in their party).

The Pony Express from 1860 to 1861 (It didn't last long but what a romantic notion of lone riders barreling across this wide open prairie at gallop speed - - a trail of dust behind them. They carried mail in relay from Missouri to California - - in just ten days).

I drove my four wheel drive pickup truck down near the low point of the pass, then took my camera and walked. I sat on boulders and gazed down in all directions across the sweet smelling sage. I had the whole place to myself (except for a herd of pronghorn antelope). Not another person or vehicle in sight for miles.

What a wonderful experience. I could see them all in my mind, as they passed east to west across the terrain. Each with their own dreams, their own mission, and all with much determination. A good place to visit.

WA: Palouse Falls - Starbuck. ID: Lolo Pass. MT: Gallatin River.
WY: Yellowstone National Park - Jackson Hole - Togwotee Pass - Wind River - Popo Agie River - Sinks Canyon - South Pass. UT: Green River & Flaming Geyser dam - Myton to Wellington [Nine Mile Canyon petroglyph] - Arches National Park [Double “O” arch hike] - Cedar Mesa [Road Canyon cliff dwelling hikes]. CO: Piedra River -Treasure Falls - .Wolf Creek Pass - Great Sand Dunes National Park - Cuchara Pass. NM: Raton to Folsom on highway 72. TX: Quail to Wellington. OK & KA: passing through & family visit. NE: North Platte River.
WY: Guernsey Oregon Trail wagon ruts - highway 270 -Devil’s Tower
MO, ID & WA: passing through on way home.

The photographs in this set were taken on a two week “road trip” through 11 Western states. My principal destinations planned for this road trip were: Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming; Nine Mile Canyon petroglyphs in Utah; Two hikes to cliff dwellings at Road Canyon in the Cedar Mesa country of Utah; Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado; a visit to an Aunt in Texas and with my Mother in Kansas; Oregon Trail wagon ruts near Guernsey, Wyoming and finally Devils Tower in N.E. Wyoming.

I was able to see and do all of those things and much, much more with excellent weather almost the entire trip. It was a fun and memorable road trip. I hope you all will enjoy some of the photographs I took along the way. I spent every night but one in the back of my pickup truck (screened windows, reading lights & full comfortable mattress). My old Colorado “Alp” three pound prime goose down sleeping bag came in handy on several nights, when temperatures were below freezing.

Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots






Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots, The Flaming Lips' long awaited follow-up to 1999's The Soft Bulletin. Guest artist Yoshimi P-we plays with psyche-noise-experimental group the Boredoms and leads her own band OOIOO. The Yoshimi in the songs, however, is a fictional character. 11 tracks. 2002.

As these dimpled moptops from Oklahoma grow pepper-bearded and transform into wizened elder statesmen of sonic adventuring, the heartfelt candy of their loving bubblegum stretches ever longer into echoing soundscapes. If Radiohead are halfway to becoming U2, the Flaming Lips are nine-tenths of the way to pop nirvana. Hardly a song on Yoshimi isn't resonated, echoed, and reverberated--floating the listener higher until they have the ultimate bird's-eye view of what makes a great band tick. As with any album by the band, it's hard not to imagine parades and a sky filled with helium balloons while you listen to any of it--in this case, the party is enhanced brilliantly by digital filters and silver shimmering asides. The most immediate songs, like "One More Robot (3000-21)," are digital (almost trip-hop) dance numbers that lift the band out of the cornfields and into the loopy land of Bjork. Little surprise, then, that the band are already following up this majestic splash of gummy bear brilliance by recording a CD with kids' TV show host Steve from Blue's Clues. It's like Woodstock meets Snoopy! --Ian Christe
