John stopped by and our little Ella pointed at him at one point and said: Swing! Swing! I didn’t get it until I looked closer and yes, indeed, his t-shirt sported a tree with a swing, titled “Play Station“. Made me smile!

It puts him in bouts against Dylan, Duchamp and Hitchcock, and contrasts their profiles through diagrams. He thinks he never really stood a chance, did he? Silhouettes.
