The Sky Is Falling

The movie “The Day After Tomorrow” opens this weekend.  I haven’t decided whether to see it on the big screen or wait and see it as a rental.  From what I can see from the trailers, it looks it’s going to be a standard disaster flick, somehow involving global climatic changes and the onset of … Continue reading The Sky Is Falling

The Infinite Cat

OK, here’s the idea.  Some guy takes a picture of his cat and posts it to a web page.  Someone else takes a picture of his or her cat looking at the first cat on the web page, then uploads that image to said webpage.  Another person takes a picture of their cat looking at … Continue reading The Infinite Cat

New site is online

The new website is now active (Duh, obviously).  This site features a much more interactive weblog than my old site, while keeping things lean and clean.  The other site turn into self-indulgent blathering, was over-designed, and cumbersome.  I make no guarantees about this site, but at least the blathering will be categorized.

Sunday afternoon’s concert went well, too.  I ran into two former teachers/colleagues from Laurens 55 who had come for the concert, so it was great catching up with them. I am always fascinated by the sound of a live orchestra. … Continue reading

I wonder if he … Continue reading

Oddly enough, I didn’t have much contact with any of these while an undergrad, but developed a relationship with each after Furman.  Albert Blackwell founded and directed the Quodlibet … Continue reading End of a Furman Era

So how, exactly, does one become an Internet Icon?  I guess I could design a Tron Costume, or do something equally foolish.  As I’ve turned my attention by to this website, I’ve been wondering what cool service I might offer that would make people actually want to come back.  I did a Google search for … Continue reading

If you haven’t, go right now and rent the movie Amelie and watch it. It’s got subtitles, but don’t be scared.  We’ve held my nephew’s copy hostage since Christmas, and I really should get it back to him.  We watched it again last night and was delighted once again. Today was a very productive day … Continue reading
