I don’t have much to say today, but if you’re anything like me, you probably enjoy random linkage. So here are a bunch of things I have found entertaining lately.
One of my greatest peeves is when the academic community/”they” make unneeded alterations to the body of common knowledge. For example, Pluto was a planet when I was kid. There was no need to downgrade poor Pluto. Grandfather it in guys. Another pet peeve is comma-usage. I was taught to use the Oxford comma, this image has been making the rounds on the internet, and I love it.
It is amazing some of the things that are happening in the academic world with the internet. A friend of mine recently posted a blog with links to Free Philosophy Courses Online. I have thus far downloaded “Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art” by James Grant, Oxford University. I have not yet listened to these lectures, but I am looking forward to it.
I have rediscovered my love of the Nashville Predators. I got to see them stomp the Chicago Blackhawks Saturday night. It was a blast.
Interesting sidenote, at Predators games people bring those wooden train whistle toys in support of Jordin Tootoo (“Toot Toot” from the whistle).
I also got to meet Little Richard this weekend. He was super friendly, and he gave me an autographed picture of him from his younger days.
One day I can tell my daughter that we met Little Richard when she was in her mommy’s tummy. Then, I will show her this:
That’s all I have for today. Until later friends…
