Severinghaus Thoughts

poetry can appear
spontaneously from nothing
forming in beads
on the side of your glass
running down onto the paper
as your pen moves
i’ve emptied my glass
the air is cold and dry
i am tired
and my pen has stopped

In deference to Like Disco . . . But Not Really, an improv group that I enjoyed immensely during college, I submit this list of quotations recorded by Ryan Byers.

They also have a show in Champaign on Saturday.

Fred Rogers of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood fame died today. NPR has a tribute of sorts and the dailybulletin.com has some of his quotations. Google is posting new stuff every few minutes. Also, Ed has a nice tribute.

I liked Mr. Rogers.

One has not truly experienced the brilliance of life until one has witnessed the Andrew Mills impression of Princess Diana.

Darren Hron

I hope it’s okay that I am posting this, but since it’s on a public Live Journal, I figure it’s fair game.

Rebecca McNulty wrote a little tribute to Darren Hron. Darren is just one of those fundamentally good people that one meets in the course of one’s life – and a rare individual who (amazingly) has managed to maintain a tender heart, despite the machinations of the world.

To Darren . . .

I am swayed enough by a visceral cinematic experience to not be entirely convinced by this article, but Jonathan Last’s political analysis of Star Wars makes some intriguing points.

Down with midi-chlorians! Boo! Boo! Hiss! Hiss!

Not Your Average D&D

Filed under: Rambles — lmwalker @ 4:39 pm

Chris Hutchens sent me an intially dry, but ultimately interesting article MSN article explaining why economists could learn a thing or two from the Fortune 500.
