Chris Stevens is my hero, forever and always.
"Fellow Cicelians, my heart is pounding, dancing to the drum of a free people, a city on a hill, e pluribus unum. I feel at one with Whitman, shepherd of the great unwashed: ‘O democracy, near at hand to you a throat is now inflating itself and joyfully singing.’"
it got a lot of things right, but it got even more things wrong
Teri Polo as Michelle Schodowski Capra in Northern Exposure
I really want to go to Moosefest, but it would be SO expensive.
I really honestly might try to save my money and go in a couple of years.
(I also want to go to see Punxsutawney Phil for Groundhog Day.)
sometimes i just get really emotional about northern exposure
Pretty much everytime here.
My first exposure to the world of Brian Eno, was this scene. Changed me in a lot of ways, this show did.

You’ve been listening to the adagio from Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony. I think Ludwig pretty much summed up death in this one. You know, he’d just about lost all his hearing when he wrote it, and I’ve often wondered if that didn’t help him to tune into the final silence of the great beyond.
Apropos of all that, before I forget, I’ve got a couple of scheduling changes for those that are looking after the body of the unknown person. Doreen Mayfair is nursing a sick malamute and can’t make her 7:00 pm shift. Hey, Ruth-Anne, you wanted me to let you know that you’re up at 6:00.
On a happier note, congratulations and l’chaim to Holling Vincoeur. He’s getting circumcised the day after tomorrow by our own Dr. Fleischman. Anybody who’s not familiar with the practice, circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin of the penis. Ouch. Anyway, Holling, if you’re listening, I don’t know if you have plans for the disposal of that foreskin, but you might wanna consider the Hasidic custom of burying it under a fruit tree. You know, a little nod to life’s cyclic nature. Anyway, brother, I’m gonna spin this one for you.
