BEAUTY, ART, PRIESTS, MORE!: Barbara Nicolosi of Church of the Masses addresses people who work in the formation of seminarians. Tons of great stuff. Here are some quotes that spoke especially strongly to me: "...I have no business talking to you about how to form priests--but I can speak about some of what we have come to in trying to form artists and in the same way that we are trying to realize the priesthood of the artist, perhaps you can begin to brood over the artisthood of the priest? … [Read more...]

"I joined the A.C.L.U. and became a liberal. Then a drunk. Sober, I could not bear to look at Belle Isle and the great oaks; they seemed so sad and used up and self-canceling. Five good drinks and they seemed themselves." --Lancelot … [Read more...]

MOTHRA AND MORE: So the giant moth (and thanks very much for the suggestions as to its nature; I especially appreciated the reader who warned me that it was likely an alien scout) was not dead. After spending about a day at rest in the corner of the room, it eventually roused itself and staggered to the window, then shambled out into the night.My conclusion is that I am running a drunk tank for moths. Is anyone really surprised?In other updateliness, I did in fact watch "Dark Harbor" again. … [Read more...]

Maybe just a slip of the tongue? But hey, everything's an identity if you want it to be, I guess.Sed Contra: See (and hear) David "Beyond Gay" Morrison speak!The Volokh Conspiracy: Why is there no shopping around U Chicago?

"I forgot to tell you another thing that happened in the parlor, a small but perhaps significant thing. As I stepped into the parlor with its smell of lemon wax and damp horsehair, I stopped and shut my eyes a moment to get used to the darkness. Then as I crossed the room to the sliding doors, something moved in the corner of my eye. It was a man at the far end of the room. He was watching me. He did not look familiar. There was something wary and poised about the way he stood, shoulders angled, … [Read more...]

GRAPHIC VIOLENCE: This NYTMagazine piece on graphic novels is fine--nothing desperately new, silly ending, but certainly not a bad piece--but mostly worth reading for the bits where Alan Moore says stuff.I also noticed a parenthetical, in re Adrian Tomine: "(He became an English major at the University of California, Berkeley, because the art department had no use for representation, let alone comics.)"
