First of all, my friend Rich at the Cable and Tweed blog brought to my attention the fact that Jewlie at the Fabulist listed Optical Atlas in her top 5 MP3 blogs (and Cable and Tweed is a much-deserved #1). It's really nice to see someone's reading and appreciating my other site.
Also, I have a piece of microfiction called "Clear Crossing" that will be appearing in the first issue of the zine Le Absurditae.
That Murnau essay below? I wrote it twice. Yesterday's Easter thunderstorm took out the power right as I was about to wrap it up, and it wasn't saved. So I rewrote the whole thing in the afternoon. If it seems a bit hasty in places, that's why.
What I'm listening to now: NPR's All Songs Considered discusses The Beatles 1965: The Capitol Records. Birthday list this for me please.
