There are many reasons why I enjoy this anime Make My Day but the featured use of a pallet jack in what's essentially hard sci-fi is *chef's kiss*

I fumbled my Gravity's Rainbow reread a few months ago. I picked it up just now and am dead lost.

I need to watch Cronenberg's Crimes of the Future ASAP

I'm grateful someone tossed off a reference to Fad Gadget to diss Grimes because I spurred me to revisit Fad Gadget. I'm listening to the singles collection now.

An old friend messaged me out of the blue last night, saying that he's been thinking a lot about Momus.

I'm reading David Graeber's pirate book now. And Reed's The South. And the Paul LaFargue book I misplaced. And Dylan's book on songs I forgot I borrowed from work. Whoops.

So Freeman Dyson was conscious of Kurt Vonnegut's experience in Dresden. (This must've been rattling around in the back of my skull.)

It's blowing my mind to see that Theodore Stephanides, from Gerald Durrell's Corfu books, has a weighty Wikipedia entry. I read those books as a kid & adored Theodore.
