Screen Rant  on July 31, 2019 —

The above space PG(3,2), because of its close association with
Kirkman's schoolgirl problem, might be called "schoolgirl space."

From a writer's requiem—

"Algis points out that at the end of each story, there should be a moment of validation, a place where a person in authority makes some sort of statement that lets the reader know that the story has reached its conclusion." David Farland, June 9, 2008

Paraphrase of a version by an anonymous reader at Amazon.com (see previous post)—

"… someone who has no other vested interest in the story… steps forward and says 'He's dead, Jim' or 'Who was that masked man?'"

Moments of validation from today's midday NY Lottery4639 and 575.

For "He's dead, Jim," see April 6, 1939* (4/6/39) at St. Joseph's Church in Springfield, Mass.

For "Who was that masked man?," see the Mark of Zorro in Post  575.

* This was a Maundy Thursday, not the Good Friday indicated in the linked narrative.

Shining Through

From Dogma

“You see, Malloy, I’m writing a novel about Los Angeles…. It’s a fantastic place, you know, Malloy…. It has a Spanish name, with religious Roman Catholic connotations….”

From timesonline.co.uk, quotes of the day on May 19, 2005:

“My granddaughter once said I have a big imagination. And I said, ‘What’s a big imagination?,’ and she said, ‘You remember what never happened.'”

Isabel Allende, novelist, whose new book is based on the life of Zorro

“You all know I love LA, but tonight I really love LA.”

Into the Sunset

I just learned of Johnny’s Cash’s death.  On Google News, the headline was  Johnny Cash rides into sunset.  The source was the Bangkok Post.

when you play at this level
there’s no ordinary venue.”

Birthday of Michael Douglas
and Catherine Zeta-Jones

To honor Michael’s adventures in “Romancing the Stone” (filmed near Veracruz, Mexico) and  Catherine’s impressive performance as the daughter of Zorro, this site’s background music is now the Mexican birthday song, “Las Mañanitas,” as performed at

Classical Guitar Midi Archives.

For the lyrics, courtesy of Dale Hoyt Palfrey,

De las estrellas del cielo
quisiera bajarte dos:
una para saludarte
y otra para decirte adiós.

From the stars of the heavens
I would like to bring down two:
One to say hello to you
And the other to say goodbye.

Update of September 28:

In honor of Degas, of the petite danseuse Leslie Caron, and of the opening this Sunday of the permanent sculpture exhibition at the National Gallery, this site’s background music has been changed, at least for the weekend, to Gershwin.
