Well, I got back from Maine and look what I found in my overstuffed e-mailbox! A special message from arch-fiend Wendy Wilkins (whom I affectionately call "Nee-Nee Noony" because for my closest fiends only the finest nicknames will do... just like our president!). As usual, the bold and italics are mine!!! However, as a special treat, I have tried to duplicate the lime-green font she sent it in...
... because I care. So, if you're in LA today, won't you stop by...

I did this show a couple of times back in the day, and Nee-Nee seemed to be trying to do some sort of tribute to sixties variety shows (like "Laugh In", "The Dean Martin Show", etc.) with it, which I think is why it was called "Lime". Shows like that were always art-directed with a lot of crazy psychedelic colors like pinks and limes... the better to see the traces, man.
