RIP Howard Zinn 

Howard Zinn died today. What a shame — I was just speaking to a student this week about how great he is. I'm way too exhausted to write something properly, but here's part one of a lecture he gave recently so those of you who don't know him can get a taste.

The world has lost a great man.

Inexplicably Fantastic 

I can't explain precisely why, but there's something beautiful and ethereal about this video. The guy is providing a sign-language transcript of Suzanne Vega's song "Tom's Diner".

Perhaps it's the zen-like lack of expression as he waits for the lyrics. Perhaps it's the combination of fluid music and fluid hand motions. Perhaps it's the intriguing connection of certain American Sign Language movements to the actions themselves.

Anyway, I was flipping through The YouTube today and sat enthralled. Enjoy!

Ceci n'est pas un blog post 

Check out the cool new wallpaper I made. If you don't get it, you should learn more about Magritte's work.

For best results, replace the HP2009m with an image of your own monitor.


Jack Bauer interrogates Santa Claus. (No, you're a month too late!)

Today I'm listening to: The Big Lebowski!
