~ First off, if you're a writer you may have heard about the fuss over Amazon deleting reviews written by authors—no, not reviews of their own books, but any other author's. Anne R. Allen has written a good blog post breaking down the whole brouhaha.
~ I'd long wished that there was a soundtrack CD for the TV movie The Homecoming (the pilot movie for The Waltons), so I was delighted to recently discover that one had been released! I got it for Christmas, and it's really lovely—a subtle kind of score that you might not fully appreciate till you hear the music by itself.
~ My brother alerted us to the fact that all of Martyn Lloyd-Jones' recorded sermons—around 1600—are now available online to download for free. What an amazing resource!
~ We all know what a misplaced or omitted piece of punctuation can do to a seemingly ordinary sentence. I got a real chuckle out of this instance, a rather electrifying message sent out by a British aristocrat to his tenants in 1821.
~ Finally, if you're in the mood for a laugh, a couple of weeks ago I happened on the remake of the classic "Who's On First?" routine done on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Not only is it that rare thing, a modern-day comedy routine that's both clean and funny, I thought they did a great job recreating (and then elaborating on) the original. Love the way they filmed it in black and white.
Have a great weekend!
