Good word

"When classical music is associated with popular entertainment, the result is usually to trivialize it (who can listen to the 'William Tell Overture' without thinking of the Lone Ranger?). Kubrick's film is almost unique in enhancing the music by its association with his images."

My fellow Americans

When I was a kid, I got irked when presidential speeches took over all three broadcast networks. Since that was all we had. I used to flip between channels and note subtle differences between the feeds. Look, on NBC Reagan's suit is slightly more brown.

Next time we move, I'm going to do some strength training to prepare, and I'm not even kidding.

Settling in

Over the two days that we have lived in our new house, neighbors have extended generosity and hospitality twice. In all my previous moves that has happened exactly zero times. I could get used to this.


Greetings from our new house in South Knoxville. We have decided to leave everything where we put it down when we moved in. We call this the Hall of Bookshelves.
