Another Dead Ringling Elephant Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus doesn’t always let the public know when an elephant dies, as in the case of 11-day-old Bertha, who was born and died with no recognition, but in a news release issued this week, the circus announced that an elephant named Lutzi—who spent 56 years of her 61-year life with the circus—was euthanized after her health...
My hands have not touched water since your hands, - No; - nor my lips freed laughter since ‘farewell’. And with the day, distance again expands Between us, voiceless as an uncoiled shell. Yet, - much follows, much endures… Trust birds alone: A dove’s wings clung about my heart last night With surging gentleness; and the blue stone Set in the tryst-ring has but worn more bright. ...
Excerpt from Alexander Pope’s The Rape of the Lock: Canto 3 Oh thoughtless mortals! ever blind to fate, Too soon dejected, and too soon elate! Sudden, these honours shall be snatch’d away, And curs’d for ever this victorious day. For lo! the board with cups and spoons is crown’d, The berries crackle, and the mill turns round. On shining altars of Japan they raise ...

I can’t help but be fascinated. Everything about them is beautiful. And I hope they can bring forth the kind of change that Britain, and the rest of the world needs.

William Shatner Gives Tax Advice to PM
Posted 04-28-2011 http://www.peta.org Just in time for Canada’s tax day, William Shatner has news for Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper: He’s living in deep space if he thinks the annual seal slaughter is fiscally responsible. In a letter to the prime minister, Canadian-born Shatner says, “Not only is it cruel to bludgeon and shoot thousands of seals every year, the...

Dear Internet Friend, Well, you are my friend, period. You used to work with me and then you moved away. So now we communicate via Facebook and Twitter. And mail, lots of mail. You’re a wonderful person and a beautiful girl and boys suck But someday you will meet someone, and they will be quirky and witty and perfect for you, and then you will turn into the world’s most amazing...
Honestly, this is one of the best cookbooks I own. I am so glad I decided to get it. It is so ridiculously amazing.
Tribute to an amazing human being and author.
Fantasist, singer-songwriter, muscian. Author of fiction, non-fiction and screenplays. Peter S. Beagle, who turns 72 today, is without a doubt on of the most talented authors and individuals I have ever come across. I had been read his stories as a child, most fond of The Last Unicorn, and soon after discovered the animated adaptation which absolutely blew my mind as a 3 and a 1/2 year old. What...
today day in history
I get that 420 may be a big deal for some people, sure. And it may be just another excuse to get high and have a good time with you buddies. But today, April 20th, is so underrated, that it is just sad and pathetic for the rest of the world who would rather smoke a joint. In 1792, France declared war on Austria, Prussia & Sardinia. In 1841, the first detective story was published (Edgar...

Dear Stranger, Thank you for serving me my grande soy hot chocolate, no whip. You’re cute.
Dear Dreams, You come and go. But I’d like a little more romance and adventure, and a little less frightening. Love, Self
the very definition of nostalgia is listening to Alkaline Trio. I forgot how much I loved them way back when. Especially their earlier music. I have opted out of reading Jane Eyre and I am just going to listen to oldies all night. Oh yeahhhh.
I’ll admit, I only picked it up because the TV show is just so addictive. But.. First off- Absolutely amazing artwork. Tony Moor is a mastermind when putting pen to paper. I’m completely envious. I want his skills and originality. Secondly- Robert Kirkman is also wonderfully genious. This is by far the most relavent and ‘freshest’ graphic novel I have picked up in a ...
Dear Little Sister, One day you will grow up to be so beautiful it will be hard to keep eyes off you. No matter what, keep a good strong head on your shoulders, and don’t let anybody push you around. Follow your heart, but keep your heart safe. Stay true to who you are. Don’t drink. Don’t smoke. Don’t do drugs. And even though we are 12 years apart, you are truly my best...
