To the house that was never built,

Had my eyes set fifty years to the morrow –
How the sun would dance on the front porch,
To the crooked treehouse in the backyard.
Cut the strongest of wood,
Called the bravest of men.
Seventeen weeks of drawing up plans,
set on canvas, set foot on the ground.
But I did not know the ground would shake.
How could I know the ground would shake?

Rant#19 – The dark science rises.

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Commentary, Rants

Back in the day, pioneers like Copernicus and Galileo faced opposition for their stand on science from both men of religion, who were worried it was disagreeing with their God and men of science, who were more loyal to their predecessors and had a difficult time adjusting to their worldview being toppled over. These people denied science because their trust was placed elsewhere. Today’s scientists face a different kind of deniers, those whose trust lies only in distrusting science itself.

Sherlock Holmes II (1908), part of a Danish silent series, is regarded to be the very first full-length ‘sequel’ movie ever in the history of cinema. Given most silent films of the era are considered to be ‘lost’, it is quite difficult to know with absolute certainty, but there seems to be at most one or two ‘sequels’ each year since then. ‘The Fall of a nation’ in 1916 is often touted to be the first Hollywood sequel. They wouldn’t really catch on until the 1970s and 80s when movies like Superman and Godzilla proved to be very profitable for franchising. Today one can barely find a movie that is not a sequel, remake, reboot or spin-off of something else.

Rant #17 – Running out of time.

The road not taken was my first real ‘adult’ experience with poetry. Until then I’ve seen poems as for overzealous people who cherished every brook, fallen leave and moss-covered stone or for the overly in love, singing in praise of their lady. The road not taken was a personal narrative, it told a story from a very critical moment in the poet’s life and knowing that his entire life as a career stemmed from that one risky bargain reinstated the notion of a sentient universe. That somehow things don’t just happen and it’s all part of a grand plan. It is still ’cause and effect’ but the causes always seem rather forced, the events rather too coincidental. It is because of Robert Frost that I tend to take a bit too long to decide every time I’m at crossroads and so far its paid out well.
