Past and Presents

Earlier today, I came across this song I wrote almost 15 years ago and subsequently forgot about. I just might polish it a bit and record the thing.

I also was reminded of this glorious thread on Making Light from a decade ago, which turned into a poetry parody jam session on the theme of Nigerian 419 spam. I've got two contributions in there myself. (One of them is a triolet, of course.)

Otherwise, my siblings did a videoconference earlier tonight which worked out fairly well. (And I got to open my presents from our it's-not-a-Secret-Santa-exchange-because-we're-Jewish-but-let's-be-real-Chanukah-presents-aren't-actually-a-thing-so-who-are-we-fooling exchange [not its real name], which turned out to be a copy of Randall Munroe's Thing Explainer, and also Merriam-Webster's Biographical Dictionary. The latter is 20 years old, but it's still fun, and maybe even useful. I am most pleased.)

Music Advent, Day 12: "Lithium," covered by the Polyphonic Spree.

Music Advent, Day 13: "Mysterious Woman," by Christine Lavin.

(This would be Lavin's pastiche of Suzanne Vega.)
