I've been a bit under the weather, I guess. Actually, it's possibly just the outcome of some work-related stress, on issues I'm not really comfortable trying to summarize right now. I'll get around to it at some point. Meanwhile, I... Continue reading

How many hads can there be? James, while John had had "had", had had "had had"; "had had" had had a better effect on the teacher. I had an easier time understanding it when I saw the punctuation. [daily log:... Continue reading

I guess clowns need love too. 뭘 지금 듣고있어요. 박겨애, "곡예사의 첫 사랑." Is this song really about a love affair with a clown? It seems to be. What is it with Korean culture and clowns? I haven't quite figured... Continue reading

I have been re-reading some Melville short stories. In college, during that brief period when I thought I was an English Major, I had a seminar on Melville in which we read many of these stories. This is the first... Continue reading

In 1960, a guy name Joe Kittinger jumped out of a high altitude balloon and fell to Earth. I don't think I could ever have the nerve to skydive, but this activity has always fascinated me. I suppose this is... Continue reading

The planet kept on spinning like a plate that someone threw down on the floor, and still it kept on spinning, rolling in a curve, an aimless helix, then it flopped down, still. Continue reading

The song by Joe Hill (union organizer in the first decades of the 1900s) entitled "The Preacher and the Slave" is the origin of the phrase "pie in the sky." Joe Hill was executed in 1915, probably framed for a... Continue reading
