Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

02/09/2005: I've wanted to mention this for a while now....

but events in My Real Life™ have been conspiring against me.

Very occasional blogger, Memphis journo, and aspiring actor Jon W. Sparks has risen from the dead, blogistically speaking. In his personal blog he's added a few posts on the fantastic Memphian showing at the Sundance Film Festival (can you say "Hustle and Flow" and "Forty Shades of Blue"? I knew you could), and on his Commercial Appeal blog he mentions the recent Bluff City personal appearance of former astronaut and current New Age/paranormal woo-woo merchant Edgar Mitchell. (For the record: Mitchell was assigned to the backup crew for Apollo 10, and was a prime crew member for the Apollo 14 mission. Mitchell was assigned as Lunar Module pilot, and he and Mission Commander Alan B. Shepard walked on the moon.)

[Yes, I'm showing my anti-paranormal biases there. This is my space, and I'll do that if I want. Get over it, or die with it on your mind, as My Great And Good Friend would say....]
