“Indeed, all male friendships outside of work sometimes seem to be impossible: you look at each other at the restaurant at some point in the conversation and you know that each of you is thinking, man, this is futile, why are we here, we’re wasting our time, we have nothing to say, we’re not involved in some project together that we can bitch about, we can’t flirt, we feel like dummies discussing movies or books, we aren’t in some moral bind with a woman that we need to confess, we’ve each said the other is a genius several times already, and the whole thing is depressing and the tone is false and we might as well go home to our wives and children and rent buddy movies like ‘Midnight Run’ or ‘Planes, Trains, and Automobiles’ or ‘The Pope of Greenwich Village’ when we need a shot of the old camaraderie.”

–Nicholson Baker, from “U and I” (1991).

Palm Coast Construction and Development Progress Reports

Updates of ongoing permitting, construction and development projects in Palm Coast usually run here, along with a link to the city’s Week in Review. But the Week in Review, under the guise of being modernized, has become flashier and power-point like while becoming less substantive and dumbed down. We may or may not link to it in future.

When Mickey Mouse Jammed Out Carmen and Other Favorites

From WQXR Blog: “One of the earliest Mickey Mouse shorts, “The Opry House,” features some of the most well-known tunes from Bizet’s Carmen, including a comedic rendition of the “Toreador Song,” in which a violinist breaks his instrument and then uses his beard as an improvised violin of sorts, and a meowed version of the popular Habanera in which a pair of dentures stand in for castanets. But that’s not the only bit of classical music we find in ‘The Opry House.'”
