Something for Thursday

Yesterday was Canada Day, so here's something by Canadian composer Howard Shore. From the film The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, it's a song titled "Evenstar". This plays during the reverie sequence in the middle of the film when Elrond is telling Arwen how hopeless her love for Aragorn is.

A Random Wednesday Conversation Starter

I'm always wary of people who claim to have 'OCD', but I do believe that we all have little OCD tendencies. Here's one of mine: I always try to arrange the eggs in the carton in such a way as to be symmetrical.

One OCD-like quirk of mine is that I strive for symmetry in the eggs when I use them. #WeirdAndProud

What are you 'OCD' about?

Shtuff

Some things....

:: I have not yet watched all of the existing Star Wars movies back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back. Maybe someday...but meanwhile, someone has actually overlaid them all on top of one another. Once you get past the opening crawls, which are kind of headache-inducing due to the music not lining up, things get really surreal.

:: Fascinating article on the Soviet space shuttle Buran, which ended up not amounting to anything because the Soviet Union collapsed. Turns out that the Soviets might well have been on the way to designing and building a better shuttle than the United States did, for various reasons.

:: Yeah, Jason had himself a pretty good Saturday a few weeks ago.

Keep reachin' for the stars, folks!

America got a little bit better today.


That is all.

Bad Joke Friday

Why do chicken coops only have two doors?

Because if they had four, they would be chicken sedans!
