From Norman Corwin's website:

For those of us who have listened to the works of Norman Corwin and have been inspired by the words of this poetic genius a collection of his most famous radio works comes just at the right time. Norman Corwin’s Centennial , set to be released on April 14th 2010 by Radio Spirits, will transport our ears and minds back in time to classics such as the Bill of Rights Special: We Hold These Truths, The Undecided Molecule, The Plot To Overthrow Christmas and others.

In addition, a nice accompaniment to the CD is a Program Guide, written by Michael James Kacey which contains information and photographs of this radio legend.

Whether you’re rediscovering the words of Norman Corwin all over again or experiencing the history of The Poet Laureate of Radio for the first time, this is the one CD that should definitely be added to your collection as we get ready to celebrate the 100th birthday of Norman Corwin on May 3rd.

Rain? It stopped out here yesterday! Finally.

Lucky visitor - I had a little group who were planning on trying to go Saturday last, but Dave Kershner had to go back to Seattle, so we must reschedule. We wanted to show him a clip of the FR ELECTRICO documentary, and perhaps give him a gift or two.

Hehe, I am so proud of myself! I started a local chapter of "The Order of the Owl", (A writing club that dates back to ancient Roman times), and I already have 20 inductees writing submissions from all across my lovely state. The human mind is such a wonderful device.

Yeah. Taking context out of text, and what are you left with?
A con.

In honor of yesterday's date of 01/11/11, Robert A. Heinlein had a triple-digit date for a birthday--July 7, 1907. He passed away on May 8, 1988. Had he lived just three more months he could have had a matching death date, too.

Is that a bottle of Complexion Glow I see there in the bathroom?

Did anyone else enjoy the 24 hour L&H rare shorts marathon on TCM Tuesday night? I believe Mr B did. I DVR'd the whole thing!

Not me. Try as I might, those rabbit ears just wouldn't pull in a signal from this vast distance.

Actually, we DO have TCM, but only on pay platforms. I don't have the channel myself, as I don't find it worth paying for. The programming isn't the same as the US version. Generally less original programming and less themed content.

The January 24th issue of TIME magazine has a little blurb about Ray and 451 on Page 20's "brief history" section on Playboy.
