Ummm, Peter…what’s happening? and other nerdy stuff.

The video at this link is for a certain kind of person: One who loves the movie “Office Space,” and one who has always wanted Aquaman to show Wonderwoman his “O” face, or for Green Lantern to ask Superman why he failed to place a coversheet on his TPS report. Funny, funny stuff. (but only […]

Scanned article, background on Hell, and Lord of the Flies

Huh, that’s a long title. Anyway, here is the article Dr. Womack passed out today. I hope that I caught all the errors caused by OCR, but if I didn’t…well, deal with it. It’s 3:40 A.M. and the scanner was grumpy. Also, I made a few comments during class about Hell, and the lack of […]

William Blake’s Images from L’ Allegro and Il Penseroso

I had to remove the images from The Nativity Ode, so if you haven’t seen those, and would like to, let me know. William Blake produced these prints in 1816. I wasn’t able to get the graphics of what were the back of each print, which included Blake’s written title and comments of the design. […]

Well…sometimes blogging is like this. I do have to say it is extremely gratifying when a person takes the time to comment on a post. Although, I am happy I’ve never gotten the “‘yuo are teh sUxx0r!’ from Anonymous.” It does upset me when I think of something that I want to say during the […]
