Lake Wobegon Goes Hollywood (or Is It Vice Versa?), With a Pretty Good Cast - New York Times (register) ...
A thin young man kept popping up on Mr. Altman's shoulder during shooting recently, offering bits of advice. Paul Thomas Anderson, director and Altman-phile, is ostensibly on the set for insurance purposes; Mr. Altman is 80, so a backup director is part of the package. But he stays keenly involved because, he said, 'it is invaluable to spend as much time around Bob as I can.'

i think i'm in love with wikipedia ... been following the development of the article on John G. Roberts, Jr. ... a varied array of forces at play during a fast-breaking story ... with the (to my untrained eye) more balanced and professional approach to the entry becoming dominant ... when i first looked in, there were two sources listed ... there are now seventeen ... good stuff

apparently (according to who knows what secret source) this fellow ... John G. Roberts Jr. ... is going to be nominated for the surpreme court ... interesting to watch the battle of the vandals at wikipedia

PhillySound: Poem Machines ... i still have pens and enjoy them in my hand ... i have paper notebooks full of writing that is trust me not good at all ... but about 2 1/2 years back i started doing fyp ... and found myself making pomes every day ... i'm not an adequate judge of their value for anyone other than myself ... but i'm certain there've been more of them and of more interest to me than any of my old paper writing ... i was just too damn precious on paper ... still am

just stumbled onto nick's ideas about ideas in poetry ... and wrote a quick thing at fyp ... doing i think the very thing he writes about ... making something certainly "with energy derived from the ideas tha[t] engendered the spark of the [poem]." i felt that toward the end of the poem ... so i went on a bit maybe a bit too far looking for an idea ... that was actually mine ... and of course this poem violates my prime directive for fyp ... that these things resist ordinary sense (which i sometimes confuse with ordinary saying)

excuse me i been reading flannery o'connor all afternoon ... haunted by how she might draw me ... because it is after all ... all about me

Guardian Unlimited Books | Review | High peak haikus ...
Gary Snyder was a teenage mountaineer, studied Oriental languages, became a Beat poet in San Francisco with Ginsberg and featured in a Kerouac novel. After moving to Japan he took the vows of a Zen monk and Buddhism remains central to his work, which links ecology to literary values. Now 75, he lives on a remote 100-acre ranch in the Sierra Nevada.

Mining the Drama in a Rock Catalog ...
'Some Girls' seeks the spirit of the Smiths' songs by transforming them. The arrangements are not for rock band, but for string quartet with electronics. Morrissey's heartsick legato croon is reassigned to four women and two men, who deliver anything from keening, primal unaccompanied wails to swing-era harmonies. The Smiths' lyrics were proudly defenseless and unguarded: 'I know I'm unlovable/ You don't have to tell me.'
