Parrot 5.10.0 "Sun Conure" Released!

    Great quotations are the wisdom of the tribe.
    They bridge time and space.
    They connect the living and the dead.

    The Talmud says the right quotation at the right moment is
    like "bread to the Famished."
    May you be Fed. 
        -- from "Sunbeams: A Book of Quotations" [2nd ed], by Sy Safransky

Parrot 5.9.0 "Fantastick Parrot" Released!

Parrot 5.7.0 "Azure-rumped Parrot" Released!

Rock Concert Movement #237 - Taking the audience on a Jungian journey
into the collective unconscious by using the shadow as a metaphor for the
primal self that gets repressed by the modern persona and also by using an
underground setting and labyrinth office design to represent both the depths
of the psyche and the dungeon-like isolation of our increasingly mechanistic
society which prevents people from finding satisfying work or meaningful
connections with others.
...
It's Time to Start!

Parrot 5.1.0 "Zombie Parrot" Released!

    Flat on the bunk again, he ran for his life. The Parrot stalked him
    through the grey hours of morning, smoothing its fractal feathers,
    shuffling itself slowly into clarity as though at the end of a
    flashy film-dissolve, until at last his mind's eye had to acknowledge
    a shape,
        a shape,
            a wink
