New album out!
Assorted cheeses from the Cheese Notes vat. A couple variations on the Finback Wheel in the front and back, and the Gowanus Bloomy in the middle. The guys in front have a distinct orangey-red color and an aroma kick to them, owing to a new culture blend which included Staphylococcus xylosus II, which boosts the corynebacterium (B.Linens) activity on the rind.

"After the first show I adopted two kittens so that I could better understand the behaviors of a cat. They belonged to Gypsy Rose Lee’s sister June Havoc. She lived next door to the Actor’s Studio where I was studying at the time."

World’s Fair 50:
The Automatic Language Translator
Another World’s Fair crowd pleaser was the IBM Automatic Language Translator. In a live demonstration, the computer translated Russian text into English in a matter of seconds.
The most amazing part was that the translation wasn’t created from a computerized ‘dictionary search’ but from the analysis of both languages’ complex nuances and shades of meaning, syntax and grammar. To think that 50 years later, we have smart phones with translation apps for just about every language spoken. Очень здорово. Translation: Very cool.
