An introduction

This is a semi-public place to dump text too flimsy to even become a blog post. I wouldn't recommend reading it unless you have a lot of time to waste. You'd be better off at my livejournal. I also have another blog, and write most of the French journal summaries at the Eurozine Review.

Why do I clutter up the internet with this stuff at all? Mainly because I'm trying to get into the habit of displaying as much as possible of what I'm doing in public. Also, Blogger is a decent interface for a notebook

All great facts and personages appear twice: the first time as a hit, the second time as the cover band. Jonl
A couple of weeks ago I saw The Eggmen, a Beatles cover band here in Austin, perform "I Am the Walrus" with strings, every note in place, and I thought how much of life is like being in a cover band, trying to hit the right notes, make that perfect replication of what went before.
