Heard this work by T.S. Eliot referenced this morning on Morning Edition (NPR) by the author of the Easy Rawlins mysteries (Mosley I think). I like this kind of stuff. In Joe's words "No one does the epic poem anymore". I figure people probably do, they just can't be heard above the din.

Flea pointed me to this place online where you can order California Native Wildflowers in bulk. if you want to plant some of the local color pick some up, or if you live somewhere else and miss California, pick some up, or you want to introduce some non-native plants where you live...pick some up. Larner Seeds

Mornin'...Jim sent me this link yesterday. I'm not exactly sure if it is a joke or not. I'll let you be the judge. But at any rate it is an interesting perspective and well I had to pass it along, because....well just read it and you'll understand. It's about Memetics. If this concept is intriguing I recommend a book by Neal Stephenson called Snowcrash that is about a thought virus.

I you have ever wondered in to your systems BIOS setup and wondered what all those options meant, here is a series of pages that do a pretty good job of explaining what they are.

A couple of things article on Salon pointed me to a couple of sites I had heard of but hadn't taken the time to go see. Unfortunately they are on semi-permanent hiatus due to financing problems. Feed and Suck. I enjoyed looking through them. Also the sister site Plastic still appears vibrant.

I'll never forget the scene in Zorba the Greek when the lead says to Anthony Quinn "ZORBA! Teach me to dance". For me it goes to the root of my relationship with Adrienne. ADRIENNE! Teach me to dance (and so she does). Anthony Quinn died over the weekend.

I stumbled across the entire script to Monty Python's The Holy Grail, while looking for something completely different, which is appropriate.
