The moon is gorgeous tonight
The Springsteen version is like a whole different song. The last verse completely changes it. From an Orthodox Marxist perspective, one could say that it's superior, that is to say, from the perspective of socialist realism. But the Tom Waits version really speaks to the sketchy moods that one finds oneself in in places like Sud-Ouest Montreal, or for that matter, New Jersey.
I know that, uh, my education comes from the shape of a cloud, the whisper of the wind, the babbling of a brook, the song of a bird, the laughter of a child, the beauty of a woman...

...and when I go on off into a [unintelligible] dream, I learn things that I could not have known, such as the anti-universe, and things of this nature, which I'm working on.

I'm going to go drink tea on my roof and chat with people on the phone before Karazhan. Helpdesk training starts tomorrow morning. Handout on Friday. A week from Wednesday my last class starts, finishing up the academic journey I began exactly eleven years ago.

Current Location: Hoboken, NJ
Feeling: listless listless
Listening to: Fear Factory, Echo of My Scream

That ... is a really haunting photo. Dresden? Stalingrad? Someplace else? Actually reminds me of the playground scene in Terminator 2 with the nuke, a scene that still gives me the chills.

It's hard to fathom man's inhumanity to man. Seriously.

No one clicks on my links

The link under the photo discusses it a bit. From there:
Stalingrad's main railroad station burns after German air attack.
So good call on the Stalingrad!

Always too many to the point of distraction :)

But, see, they're part of a finely woven tapestry that is me. Links act as a director's cut, or a deeper medium than the text itself. You understood, once.
