Picked up this Biography of J.D. Salinger by Paul Alexander. Interesting stuff. There is a new movie and a Biography coming out soon supposedly with incredible revelations. I guess it will be like looking at a wreck, you don't want to but your curiosity will win out. This author's thesis is that Salinger's isolation was in itself a calculated publicity stunt to further his allure.
Picked this one up at the library, some interesting recipes. Will be testing a few out this weekend.
Also at the Library, Hitchcock. I always wanted to see San Francisco based on seeing Vertigo. Maybe someday I will go there.

O friends, no more these sounds!
Let us sing more cheerful songs,
more full of joy!
Joy, bright spark of divinity,
Daughter of Elysium,
Fire-inspired we tread
Thy magic power re-unites
All that custom has divided,
All men become brothers
Under the sway of thy gentle wings.
Whoever has created
An abiding friendship,
Or has won
A true and loving wife,
All who can call at least one soul theirs,
Join in our song of praise;
But any who cannot must creep tearfully
Away from our circle.
All creatures drink of joy
At nature's breast.
Just and unjust
Alike taste of her gift;
She gave us kisses and the fruit of the vine,
A tried friend to the end.
Even the worm can feel contentment,
And the cherub stands before God!
Gladly, like the heavenly bodies
Which He set on their courses
Through the splendor of the firmament;
Thus, brothers, you should run your race,
As a hero going to conquest.
You millions, I embrace you.
This kiss is for all the world!
Brothers, above the starry canopy
There must dwell a loving Father.
Do you fall in worship, you millions?
World, do you know your creator?
Seek him in the heavens;
Above the stars must He dwell.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Hamish Linklater as twins ? I guess hats and costumes can pull it off. Going to see Comedy of Errors next week. One big change for this short play :starts at 8:30 p.m. and no intermission.
Note: see comments for correction.

Let's Go Knicks ! Got two playoff towels and a playoff shirt. We need a big all out effort tonight. Who will step up ?
Today is the dance parade down Broadway. Lots of cops and lots of funny dressed people.
A street fair on Ave of Americas and this place was giving out free wings. Very tasty, so I bought twelve to go.
This was my destination. Mike Rodriguez, a pit master who spent years tending the smokehouse at Salt Lick in Driftwood, Texas is the Pit-Master. I have to say the Burritos were delicious and the smoke flavor was the reason.
