My Most Recent Newsletter (March)

QUEEN (Elizabeth)
But playwrights teach us nothing about
love, they make it pretty, they make
it comical, or they make it lust. They
cannot make it true.

Oh, but they can!

From the screenplay Shakespeare in Love by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard


Arts & Letters Daily
Arts and Letters Daily is my new favorite place in which to keep abreast of news, criticism, and culture on the web. It's updated six days a week by The Chronicle of Higher Education.


Scarlatti's Sonatas
Scarlatti's sonatas, Handel's concertos, Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" and much, much more are available every day at The Classical Music Archive. Non-members are allowed several listens a day while members ($25 a year) can listen as often as they like and download individual music files and zip collections.

READ: Wintering: A Novel of Sylvia Plath by Kate Moses
SEE: The Pianist
RENT: Y Tu Mama Tambien
LISTEN: This American Life's Feb 22nd show, "Come Back to Afghanistan."

I just took the Dante test and I scored a Level 3. But I really think I was too harsh on myself during the question and answer phase. Then I made the mistake of taking the Personality Disorder test. I have high potential to be a narcissist and a hysteric. Nice. Why is it we're always trying to find the worst in ourselves?
