Rip Mr. Albee. Tobias's story in A Delicate Balance about a cat that he could not force to love him frequently haunts me. What a great weird voice he had!

Earthcorps! They seem to be teeming with young beautiful happy people, all working together restoring nature. They always seem to be having a great time.

@1 so sorry you don't agree with the 'whitewash". I always concentrate on features with my portraits (I usually just do black and white line) and try not to let color get in the way of linear detail, so I always err in favor of lighter color areas.

It took my frustrated friends months to get me on it. Now I am in deep. I roller-blade to it. Every song is perfect for roller-blading to!

Holy crap Hiddleston, Laurie, AND Colman all in one place? I totally want to see this, thanks for the heads-up!
Mar 30 katrat commented on Jim Harrison's Poetry Saved Me from Thinking Poetry Was Boring.
This is wonderful, it will lead me to look up Mr. Harrison's poetry and also to revisit some of my favs. Every once in a while I need a poetry nudge, that will make me think,
'Oh yeah...poetry!' Thanks for the nudge.

I am indeed disheartened to learn that the youth of today don't know of "Life of Brian"
Feb 27 katrat commented on Umberto Eco Is Dead.
Agreed about Travels in Hyperreality. The essay recounting his visit to a waxwork recreation of the Last Supper in California is hilarious.

My husband just got me this book for a gift, based on the strength of you endorsement. One chapter in and I am hooked (actually I was hooked with the PG Wodehouse quote). Thank you!
