The K-stans: A Parable

Verily, verily I say unto you; Kazakhstan is like unto a DJ who entered a club and laid down some beats. And all the people up in the club was like: "We're not feeling this". And again there came into that place another DJ, and this DJ was like unto Kyrgyzstan. And this DJ laid down some fresh beats, and all the people in the club threw their hands up at him and said: "Yo, this rocks the house."

And his disciples were not amazed, for this one wasn't too hard to figure out: Kyrgyzstan totally rocks the house. I joke you not.

I have so many fresh pictures but they're not uploading! I'm going to get them all to you within the week, though!

Rick (Jerimiah Johnson) Byquist here. Marina has your site on her laptop, and your pictures are extraordinary!! Where are you now? Can we all join you?? Marina has been waiting on film work (I'll let her tell you -- did she send you her pictures from her trip to Greece?) with Denzel and Russell, but is heading up to the Newfound kitchen. I assume you might get this communication -- they forced me into becoming a blogger. If you actually get this send me an email at What's Ben up to? We took Kelly up to camp and it's very peaceful. Maine might not be the mountains of China, but it's all that New England has to offer! Enjoy your travels, Rick

I love that you love Raffi! I stumbled upon your cyber camp fire by accident while looking for the lyrics to "Thanks a Lot". That's one amazing song, it makes me feel calm right in the center. I also really loved the Poo song. Gotta love Camp songs. My favorite is about nose picking.

Tito, the pictures are up, you whiner! They're on flickr, like always!
you can click on the flickr badge to the left, or go to
Nathaniel, I don't think I've put They'll Need a Crane on my blog ever. But if I have, it's there on Castpost. I didn't mean all the songs I've EVER PLAYED anywhere, I meant all the songs I've ever played on the blog. But I can do They'll Need a Crane no problem, if you'd like.
Gray, thanks! I clicked on your profile, but there's no blog or e-mail address attached, so I guess you'll remain a mystery. But thanks.
