  1. There are so many fungi, how do you keep it straight which ones are edible?

  2. Shroomage! Here in Oregon, they go crazy over Lobster mushrooms and boletes. And one or two people always nibble on an Amanita just to “see how it feels.” Cue ambulance sirens.

  3. Cage was fond of mushrooms. He once said because the word came so close to music:
    Indeterminancy 47:
    This summer I’m going to give a class in mushroom
    identification at the New School for Social Research.
    Actually, it’s five field trips, not really a class
    at all. However, when I proposed it to Dean Clara
    Mayer, though she was delighted with the idea, she
    said, “I’ll have to let you know later whether or not
    we’ll give it.” So she spoke to the president who
    couldn’t see why there should be a class in mushrooms
    at the New School. Next she spoke to Professor MacIvor
    who lives in Piermont. She said, “What do you think
    about our having a mushroom class at the New School?”
    He said, “Fine idea. Nothing more than mushroom
    identification develops the powers of observation.”
    This remark was relayed both to the president and to
    me. It served to get the class into the catalogue and
    to verbalize for me my present attitude towards
    music: it isn’t useful, music isn’t, unless it
    develops our powers of audition. But most musicians
    can’t hear a single sound, they listen only to the
    relationship between two or more sounds. Music for
    them has nothing to do with their powers of audition,
    but only to do with their powers of observing
    relationships. In order to do this, they have to
    ignore all the crying babies, fire engines, telephone
    bells, coughs, that happen to occur during their
    auditions. Actually, if you run into people who are
    really interested in hearing sounds, you’re apt to
    find them fascinated by the quiet ones. “Did you hear
    that?” they will say.
