Today & yesterday

Yesterday was dominated by the cold, so I decided not to work on the elevation (sufficiently bad mistakes would mean I'd have had to do the whole thing over) and instead finished reading & making notes on Fischer & Marek's Marx In His Own Words (or various other titles in English edition—the original is German.) Comes highly recommended by a Trotskyite author I'm acquainted with. Not very surprisingly, what Marx said turns out to be not too much like what was done in his name (among other things, he seems to have been a committed believer in democracy). Maybe more on that in a later post.

I've read a lot this past summer; it's been great to have the time. But writing about what I've read is turning out to take much more time than I expected. I'm frantically trying to finish the things I've had out from the library.

I looked over my digicam, which I'd thought was broken, and low & behold, it worked! So now I carry it in my backpack. I wandered down to Cafe Paradiso this evening, intending to read and make notes and found they had a Monday night show. So I ended up taking pictures of the performers, one of my glass, and one of a sign. The performer pictures I would not publish without permission, but the glass is really cool, and I'll probably show you the sign soon enough.

Oh! And here's a list of what I was listening to, while I was working Friday evening. These are randomly selected from my smallish on-line archive.
