The Al Purdy poem we studied yesterday straddles the lines between poem, prose, anecdote, and SNL sketch so brilliantly I thought I'd share it. For those wondering the actor playing the poet is Gord Downie, lead singer of The Tragically Hip.

Enjoy.

Granted to me "UFO" means "Unidentified Flying Object" and NOT "Little Green Men". I'm pretty sure that what I saw was just a very bright satellite, and not the results of intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic gazing upon us with envious eyes, drawing their plans against us. *

Still, its always cool to be able to gaze up into the sky, see something, and walk away thinking "Just what exactly was that, really?" I guess that's why we continue to gaze into places that we really don't belong, whether its the vastness of space, the depths of the ocean, or the unknowable mysteries of the human heart.

School starts again soon. Time to find out what I see for myself I suppose.



"Hey, what can I say? I loved reading H.G. Wells as a kid, and the 1953 George Pal film version is a sci-fi movie classic well worth seeing for any fan of the genre."

Lately I've been in a "Maritime Death and Disaster" musical mood lately, probably because I'm writing a paper on Melville's "Billy Budd". So since I see no reason to keep the fun solely to myself here's a few tunes I'm listening to.

Enjoy!

A couple of tunes by Tanglefoot:





And a blast from my elementary school past. One of my favs from that time.


Ok. Time to write my thesis statement for this bloody essay, but before I go, Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends and family! :-)

I'm feeling a tad bit better today, although I'm a touch dehydrated. Oh well, nothing some Gatorade won't fix.

Well, its time to work on my Ralph Waldo Emerson essay. It's not too long, only about 1000 words and is supposed to be a look at how a couple of his main points relate to each other.  I'm thinking I might do Truth and Society.

Ah Ralph Waldo Emerson.  Didn't he start a brawl on a "Little House on the Prairie" episode or something?

I just wanted to thank everyone who responded to my question regarding that Emily Dickinson poem and the use/meaning of the word "surge". While I'm not 100% convinced she's talking about boobies, I've got to admit that she could very well be referring to the feminine shape, especially if their isn't any structural term called "surge" that lace would somehow partner up with.

So, once again, thanks, and if anyone else has any alternative interpretations feel free to toss them in.

Tonight during my American Lit class we were discussing Emily Dickinson's poetry, and this poem caused some confusion:

"The thought beneath so slight a film
Is more distinctly seen, ---
As laces just reveal the surge,
Or mists the Apennine."

My question refers to the third line. What is surge and how would it relate to lace? Nobody in my class from the prof on down really knows what this is about on a literal plane.

Thanks!
