Completing and beginning, summing up, and miscellany. I. At the beginning of the year I did the 'January Jumpstart', and did a mix of cardio and various videos over the course of four weeks. It was at times difficult to stick with it, ... Read more

Sunday celebration, Monday rotation, and various and sundry. I. What do you do on the 17th of March? If it's 2012 you get some good and frequently (but not exclusively) Irish beer from the best beer store in town (or, in this case, acr... Read more

An all 'X-Files' and 'Millennium' entry. I. "Unusual Suspects" (a Lone Gunmen-centric episode) and "Sense and Antisense" today in 'X-Files' and 'Millennium' watching. The former is quite entertaining, a good but not favorite episode, a... Read more

So I learned from Carl Sagan in 'Cosmos'. In any case, it's Pi(e) Day. For those who don't pay attention, the simple 'logic' is as follows: March 14 = 3/14 (in the U.S.) = 3.14 = pi ... pi Day! But if we 'mirror' 3.14 we 'get' PIE (don... Read more

"[...] Details are confusing. It is only by selection, by elimination, by emphasis, that we get at the real meaning of things." (Georgia O'Keeffe) Confusion, creativity, and craft beer. I. From an email, I quote: "In another cloth... Read more

Why there was never that crossover marketing with 'The X-Files' I'll never understand ... 1. We began season two of 'Millennium' today and season five of 'The X-Files'. Usually I'd have more to say about each episode. I found both amazing i... Read more

Shopping, potatoes, animal concerns; or: economics, eating, and ethics. I. Ms. S. and I decided -- post "Holy Motors" -- that we ought to watch the apparent trainwreck that is "The Paperboy". And I'm also in the mood for the higher-cla... Read more
