Hmm. “That went over like a wet blanket” – supposedly said by Abraham Lincoln after the Gettysburg Address, which was initially not well received.

Perhaps no one sees the play link? You click “play direct” in the page to make it go.

I listened to it but not all the way through. No arguing tastes, but “it didn’t do anything for me.”

I guess I’m a softy…

Welcome to the world of music promotion. In the internet age, no less. :P

I always wanted to treat my sweetie to a candlelit dinner finished off with a dramatic reading of Langdon Smith’s poem “Evolution” from circa 1895 (the one that begins with “When you were a tadpole and I was a fish”). It’s nominally about reincarnation, following two lovers over millions of years, but Martin Gardner pointed out in one of his collections of poetry that “if you are not sympathetic to that doctrine you can take it as a whimsical metaphor for the continuity of life.”

“I was thewed like an Aurochs bull And tusked like the great Cave Bear And you, my sweet, from head to feet, Were gowned in your glorious hair…”

Sadly, I never had a chance to actually do it…
