No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction at anytime.
There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction,
a blessed unrest keeps us marching and makes us more alive than others.

same planet. different worlds.

quote of the day. from "XML in a Nutshell". on the subject of what to do with all the available space in Unicode.

"Privately, some developers are willing to admint that they're preparing for a day when we're part of a Glactic Federation of thousands of intelligent species."


i suppose for people who have seen every episode of star trek, this can only be considered forward looking.

not that i'm slamming geeks. cause, after all i am one.

and i think it's a good idea to be prepared for the challenges of communicating with other intelligent species.

on the subject of star trek, i saw this in a profile on match.com recently. (paraphrased)

"I'm looking for a man with the soul of a poet -- like Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation."

yep. amen again.

cause that's how culturally devoid our culture is. again, not to slam star trek or Patrick Steward, who is a great actor. but really now, when a character from star trek is cited as an example of a man with the soul of a poet, i weep for all the poets out there.

star trek is generally pretty good, but it is to poetry as rodeo is to opera. not exactly in the same league.

pretentious much? perhaps.

but have you read any poetry recently? any really good poetry? have you curled up with a book of poetry and just let it transport you lately? i have. when it's good it's so very transcendant, i can't even describe it.

have you listened to star trek dialogue recently? i mean really listened? i have. it's so insipid i can't even describe it.

same planet. different worlds.
