Blue Roundhead - Stropharia cyanea 
Stropharia cyanea (Strophariaceae) is a blue mushroom found in Europe and in Washington State, probably widespread in the Northwest. It has bluish green to yellow-green caps, soon discolored to pale straw yellow with only hint of green.
This species has long been confused with Stropharia aeruginosa, which is more strongly colored blue-green and has a copious white veil and white then darker, purple-brown gills. Some authors consider the species Stropharia cyanea is synonymous with Stropharia caerulea.
Together with other fungi in the genus Stropharia, the Blue Roundhead is inedible.

"Censorship is saying: ‘I’m the one who says the last sentence. Whatever you say, the conclusion is mine.’ But the internet is like a tree that is growing. The people will always have the last word - even if someone has a very weak, quiet voice. Such power will collapse because of a whisper." - Ai Weiwei

"I dreamed I dwelled in a homeless place/ Where I was lost alone/ Folk looked right through me into space/And passed with eyes of stone.." Allen Ginsberg’s "New Stanzas for Amazing Grace", an up-dated revisioning of an old song, was composed (in April 1994) at the request of Ed Sanders for his innovative project,  ”The New Amazing Grace” (new lyrics, old melody), and was performed, in November of that year, as part of an all-star gathering at the Poetry Project (St Mark’s Church) in New York.

below (courtesy of the soundtrack of the indispensible Jerry Aronson’s Life and Times of Allen Ginsberg DVD) is Paul Simon, giving his tasteful version (of Allen’s poem).

The history and the story behind the original song is all pretty fascinating. Watch a short documentary about it here - or, for a shorter version, seehere.
