Mandrel—miner’s pick, rod around which material is cast, shaft to which revolving tool or lathe-work is fixed, phonograph spindle. Sootikins—“small animals which according to folklore are given birth to by Dutchwomen laboring over stoves.” Stuart Range—“the single largest mass of exposed granite in the US.” Canned food—more bass, more voice, less drum overheads would be nice; esp. less trebly cymbals. Outgroups—“used to ‘root’ a tree.” Orthodox thought—“thinking in colors.” Wholeheartedly purple.
