Lewis Black and Neruda

If you're going to read Neruda in translation, make sure to read John Felstiner's Translating Neruda and seek out Nathaniel Tarn's translations. Avoid Donald Walsh like your life depended on it.

Saw Lewis Black's 'Red, White, and Screwed' at Yale last night. Don't want to comment except that I think I pulled a groin muscle from laughing so hard at stuff that wasn't that funny, that was, in fact, just material culled from the newspapers, punchline already included.

No comments:

In summing up, I wish I had some kind of affirmative message to leave you with. I don't. Would you take two negative messages?
-- Woody Allen
