So, it's been awhile since I posted anything. I'm not feeling particularly creative at the moment, but I do have three topics of interest, completely unrelated to one another, that I will address.
(1) I've been listening to No Line on the Horizon pretty much nonstop since my CD copy came yesterday. I wanted it in CD format because I want to stick it to iTunes, and I'm kind of an old-fashioned girl. My favorite songs right now are "Magnificent" and "Unknown Caller." "Magnificent" has an awesome bass line, comparable to any from War (which has the best bass lines: "New Year's Day," "Sunday Bloody Sunday," etc.), in my opinion. And that guitar solo on "Unknown Caller"? There are no words.
(2) I wrote a sonnet for an assignment in my poetry class. The point of the assignment was to show us how hard it is to write iambic pentameter, or some such nonsense. Not to brag or anything, but I got a perfect score. Here it is:
For when I am distressed I lack the words
To render true my sensibility;
My efforts at such times effect absurd.
Though I do often wonder whether art
Is more disposed to famish than to feed
That growing flow'r of goodness in the heart
That drinks its fill of words, so lacks the need.
And when my mind cannot attune the two,
This virtue and this creativity,
I cannot help but wonder what I'd do
If either quality belonged to me!
But when the two are joined, a wonder's wrought,
For then a poem is born, the bloom long-sought.
(3) I have another article being printed in the Ellensburg Daily Record. I don't know exactly what day they're running it, but it will be before Tuesday. I'll check it every day and see. It's a story on this artist named David Garibaldi who's coming to Central to do this show where he paints six-foot portraits in just a few minutes, right there on stage. I actually got to interview him over the phone a couple days ago for the article. For any of my readers that are interested I'll try to get a copy of the paper (that'll be, what, three copies?).
Here's a link to the press release (which I also wrote) on the Daily Record's website.
This is just the press release, not the actual story.The story is much more interesting.
So that's the biggest news in my life right now. Until next time, over.
