Stuff to do expands to overfill the time allotted, especially when that stuff includes surfing the Web. But that stuff also includes everything I want to do before classes resume: everyone I want to have lunch or dinner with, everyone I want to write to, all the apartment maintenance that needs doing.

Currently re-reading George W.S. Trow's In the Context of No Context, two essays that are more or less about the rapid transformation of American culture via television (Lisa watched Network last night, which goes well with it; I re-watched the first hour with her). I admire Trow's style in the book immensely, even if it sometimes circles his content protectively and refuses to let anyone at it.
The new dbc singles club thing, Oedipus's "Hybrid Phase Yellow," arrived today, & will be going out shortly. I'm very happy about it.
Question for lacunae readers: can you please use the comment feature to recommend a DVD that Lisa & I should rent, & maybe explain briefly why?
