Table-talk of Parkus Grammaticus for February 20
I. Daily Ouroboros: The most mind-blowing one yet?
(It's from Jason Kottke via Scott.)
II. The Sloaner on NPR (on The Secret Garden): "Whatever the opposite of seasonal affective disorder is, I have it."
III. Jumping mice...Badgership Down...
IV. The Aussie radio show I linked to a little while ago (featuring VN biographer Brian Boyd, Pale Fire fan Ron Rosenbaum, and the Nabokovically named Leland de la Durantaye) is well worth listening to—the host drops a bombshell toward the end!
V. Wandering the abode last night, looking for a window that might offer a view of the eclipse, I suddenly was under the impression that I understood the theme from Arthur: "If you get caught between the moon and New York City"—he's talking about an eclipse! But now in the harsh light of morning I'm not sure what I was thinking.
VI. And finally: In the latest Poem as Comic Strip, R. Kikuo Johnson interprets A.E. Stallings's "Recitative."
