No matter what mistakes you make or bumps in the road you come across, you are not a failure. Don’t forget that. >v<

The best of times, the worst of times, all the times


By two o’clock this afternoon I managed to experience both the best and the worst of student feedback.

Unfortunately the Negative Extreme chose to share those opinions publically in front of a group of students by airing a discussion we’d had via email and appending the personal opinion of “You’re a controlling bitch who’s ruining my GPA!”

Fortunately the Positive Extreme, while shared privately, came from two different students in two different classes.

Tears were involved in two of the three cases, on both ends of the spectrum. None of mine.

I’m home now, taking a few hours of private time to have my own feelings on the matter.

Then I will go back to work this evening for something I am not getting paid to do but the university encourages as “service.”


“You’re a controlling bitch who’s ruining my GPA!”

This person is going to have a rough life, and will probably be using that phrase, with GPA changed to “life”, with every boss in their future. Just a guess. ;)


I feel like one of the things that sets Bobs Burgers apart from its counterparts in shows like Family Guy is its penchant for love and sincerity in its characters. Tina doesn’t get relentlessly mocked by her family members for being awkward and homely for laughs like Meg Griffin would be, the comedy is instead in how they defend her from people giving her crap. The parents and the kids and the siblings all have moments where they assess how close they are often and it’s something not seen much in these sort of family-based animated comedies (besides early Simpsons). BB may not be a perfect show by any means, but I feel like its sense of heart definitely makes it more fun to watch than a lot of its peers in primetime animated comedies.

Making Shakespeare

Today in 1616 William Shakespeare died. His works have been enjoyed by generations of readers, which means that generations of printers have been busy editing and reprinting his texts. The images above are special. They are from the 1791 edition of The Bard’s “dramatic works”, as the title page has it, which included his play Richard III. Except, these images don’t show the actual book. You are looking at the proofs corrected by the editor George Steevens himself, which miraculously survived.

The proofs show the editor at work. Using the 1790 text of Malone as a basis, Steevens changed Shakespeare’s words into what he thought was the best text to print. Words were deleted (“guilty” and “murder” are crossed out), clarifications were added (a character exited “with the body”, penned next to it), and entire passages appear to have been rewritten (note the pasted pieces of paper with Steevens handwritten text). The proofs seen here show how Shakespeare is prepared for a new generation of readers: his words were perfected to reach a new audience - and new potential buyers.
