LiW/I Know

Monday Miscellany

Two cheers and one moment of silence...

Cheer #1. Guess who's playing for the NCAA Division II national championship this upcoming Saturday? We are! Go Lenoir-Rhyne University Bears!

Cheer #2. Dreams in the Witch House: A Lovecraftian Rock Opera is fantastic. I've come to expect nothing less from the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society, but even so, it exceeds my hopes. Consider it a "must listen" for fans of H.P. Lovecraft's work.

And a Moment of Silence:
R.I.P., Peter O'Toole (2 August, 1932–14 December, 2013). He was one of the true greats. My favorite film of all time, in fact, centers on his brilliant performance.

The Lion in Winter (1968)


What we do in dungeons needs the shades of day. I stole the candles from the chapel. Jesus won't begrudge them and the chaplain works for me.
