No Spoilers

1. Rest in Peace Catherine Coulson and Miguel Ferrer, two great character actors inhabiting two of their greatest characters one last time.

2. Based on Mulholland Drive, we are dealing with dream sequences and out of order scenes, the key is to separate them and re-order them. Easier said than done.

3. David Duchovny OMG!
See the Glaciers Before they Disappear

If I could give you one piece of advice, go to Glacier Park this summer; grab everyone you love and go now. It's a wonder of the world, but it's vanishing swiftly.

#FunFact: if you approach Glacier National Park from the West, you travel on the Going-to-the-Sun Road. My grandfather was one of many young men put to work during the Great Depression building it. It's narrow, windy, and breathtaking!

Oh, don't worry about that - there are plenty of places I want to revisit, but I've already been to Catalonia.

I want to click like and dislike at the same time. Amazing nature, beautiful picture. And it's so sad we're loosing it.

You can go to Barrow in Alaska or Iqaluit, Yellowknife, Whitehorse in Canada to see the midnight sun, but rather than any place above the Arctic Circle, you can also travel to Tromsø in Norway or Longyearbyen on Svalbard.

Happy birthday to my friend @Haakon Meland Eriksen (Parlementum) !  I have learned so much from you, not least to stop and look around at the world more, and definitely to laugh more. May the year ahead be filled with health and happiness, my friend!

To the Woman at the Retirement Center by Phebe Hanson | Thursday, May 11, 2017 | The Writer's Almanac with Garrison Keillor
To the Woman at the Retirement Center by Phebe Hanson | Thursday, May 11, 2017 | The Writer's Almanac with Garrison Keillor

You tell me when you were eight, newly arrived
from Czechoslovakia, your teacher made you memorize
a poem that began “I remember, I remember
the house where I was born.” Stranger
to our language you proudly learned all the verses,
practiced them over and over in front of your mirror,
but at the program when you stood to recite
in front of all the parents and other students,
you got as far as “I remember, I remember,”
and forgot all the rest and had to sit down shamefaced.

Now you live in this ten-story retirement center
where you cried most of the first month, so lonesome
for your son, transferred to another city, who couldn’t
take you with him because his new house wasn’t
big enough. Sometimes, you tell me, you slip away
from the recreation director who wants to teach you
how to turn plastic bleach bottles into bird feeders,
sneak up to your room, turn on the Bohemian radio station,
dance barefoot all by yourself, as you used to

years ago in the house where you were born.

In the late 20th Century, 1984 to be exact, this was the song blaring from many a cassette player in cars heading to the Dick's Drive-In for lunch from Garfield High School; the same burger hop where Sir Mix Alot and his posse hung out on Broadway (see image and second video below).

I'm going to start tweeting benefits of hubzilla with the hashtag #hubzilla. If others who still have a foot in that door wouldn't mind searching for that hashtag and retweeting those from @encycl, I would be glad to return the favor.

Jazz has inspired a great many things, and a great many things have inspired jazz, and more than a few of the music's masters have found their aspiration by looking — or listening — to the divine.

An Extraordinary Storm Approaches

Image/photo

It is probably the most powerful April storm to approach the Northwest coast during the past half century.  A very large, well-formed oceanic cyclone that will cross Vancouver Island Friday evening.  And one that will surely bring power outages to the coast and parts of the interior.

So sad:
In Sweden, Hundreds Of Refugee Children Gave Up On Life

An article in this week's New Yorker writes about youngsters who fell into a comalike state in reaction to the news that their family may be deported. We interview the author.


Reminds me of these Cambodian women in California in the 1980's

Long Beach Journal; Eyes That Saw Horrors Now See Only Shadows

LEAD: One Cambodian woman saw Khmer Rouge soldiers tie up her parents, cut their throats and throw them into a river. Another saw her child bashed to death against a tree.

Ten years later, in Long Beach, Calif., the eyes that witnessed these horrors cannot see.

It's beyond sad. I'm ashamed.
