A. E. Stallings: Triolet

This came recently in a mailing from Poetry Magazine.  I don’t have the inclination to kill more trees with more magazine subscriptions, but this poem did seem fanciful to me so I’m sharing it here.

Triolet on a Line Apocryphally Attributed to Martin Luther

A.E. Stallings

*****************************************************

Why should the Devil get all the good tunes,

The booze and the neon and Saturday night,

The swaying in darkness, the lovers like spoons?

Why should the Devil get all the good tunes?

Does he hum them to while away sad afternoons

And the long, lonesome Sundays? Or sing them for spite?

Why should the Devil get all the good tunes,

The booze and the neon and the Saturday night?

*********************************************

I vote for more Saturday nights and lovers like spoons.  You?

Colin Hay

I had the fortune to see Colin Hay in concert at the Ark in Ann Arbor on Tuesday.  Just let me say: YIPPEEEEEE!  He was divine, lyrical, magical, and a boat-load of fun!  You may know him as the former front man for Men At Work.  You may remember his contribution to the movie Garden State.  You may have seen him on Scrubs (below).  All of these pale in comparison to what he is, alone with a guitar and some bottles of water, in a small venue, on a cold and rainy day.  Listen to him! Find him in concert near you!  Go!

A tribute to Science

This is great.  Show it to all the kids (and kids at heart) you know who love science.

Enjoy!

Kitty Princess Bride

Got this the other day by e-mail and had to share it.  I did once use the line “my name is Inigo Montoya…” in an online dating profile and it worked quite well.  The Princess Bride is a movie among movies, it’s wonderful.

I also have had cat(s)…this is apt.  Found it online at http://lunaticrising.net/main.php?g2_itemId=60 among other places, not sure of appropriate credit but perhaps icanhascheezeburger.com?

I soooo wanna take a ride! Who remembers the Hindenburg anyway?

Solar Blimp to Fly from NYC to Paris, Rests on Land or Water

Solar Airship

Perhaps the only thing cooler than being powered by lightweight photovoltaic cells, this airship is also designed to rest on land or water.
