In my last post I mentioned events happening in “Black Rock, NC”. Actually they are in Black Mountain. So far the investment firm BlackRock has not invited me to speak. If they did it would be a problem because I do not own a necktie.
It’s ok if you don’t own a tie. You’ll own nothing and still be happy.
I really appreciate how much this made me laugh. Thank you, Charles
Be careful, typos are dangerous acts these days.
Oooh I love the image of Charles on a stage, barefoot and sans tie, speaking to Black Rock. Then I would know a shift has happened!
yes indeed hilarious......
Appreciating the easy laughter.
Yes Men could lend you a whole penguin suit I should think
That's funny, Charles! Black Mountain, legendary college closed in '57, students and faculty included Josef and Anni Albers, Charles Olson, Ruth Asawa, Walter Gropius, Ray Johnson, Robert Motherwell, Dorothea Rockburne, Cy Twombly, Robert Rauschenberg, Merce Cunningham, John Cage, Buckminster Fuller, Franz Kline, Willem and Elaine de Kooning et al...B M College Museum or something in Asheville is no doubt where you'll be holding forth
I have more than enough neckties. Happy to send you one or two. Just PM me an address.
I think if you showed up to do a talk at Black Rock without a tie, somebody there might lend you one for the day.
Phew. I would have been a bit worried if BlackRock invited you 😅
Neckties: first thing that jumped to mind was .. I can't breathe!
