The Big Sleep – Chapter 1 by Raymond Chandler (read by Tom O’Bedlam): Not a word out of place!

See that little magnifying glass above? Click on it. A Search Box opens. Put in anything about the poem you’re looking for. Part of the title. The poet’s name. A brief quotation will probably find it. Try it and see…

If you remember Hancock’s Half Hour, you might also remember that Tony Hancock wore socks with gold clocks on them. If you didn’t know why then, now you do. 

Raymond Chandler virtually single-handedly invented this genre of Private Eye Fiction, which gave birth to the Film Noir and influenced a generation of readers and movie goers.

Music video by Foreigner performing I Want To Know What Love Is.
Best quality available on YouTube

I do not own this material, I am just showing it to the rest of the world. 

Lyrics:

I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I’m older
Aaaah woah-ah-aah

Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like a world upon my shoulders
And through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
Can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me
Aaaah woah-oh-ooh

I’m gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me, oooh ooh-ooh ooh-ooh oooh
I’ve got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
I can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me
I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
And I wanna feel, I want to feel what love is
And I know, I know you can show me

Let’s talk about love
(I wanna know what love is) the love that you feel inside
(I want you to show me) I’m feeling so much love
(I wanna feel what love is) no, you just cannot hide
(I know you can show me) yeah, woah-oh-ooh
I wanna know what love is, let’s talk about love
(I want you to show me) I wanna feel it too
(I wanna feel what love is) I wanna feel it too
And I know, and I know, I know you can show me
Show me what is real, woah (woah), yeah I know
(I wanna know what love is) hey I wanna know what love
(I want you to show me), I wanna know, I wanna know, want know
(I wanna feel what love is), hey I wanna feel, love
I know you can show me, yeah

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY: CHARLES FOURIER (1772)


Charles Fourier (1772)

Fourier was a French social philosopher who developed a form of utopian socialism known as Fourierism. He proposed the idea that the natural passions of humans would, if properly channeled, result in social harmony. The social organization for such development was to be based on an economic unit composed of 1,620 people living in a single community building and dividing work according to their interests and desires. Why did he designate 1,620 as the ideal number of persons in a phalanx? More… Discuss

THIS DAY IN THE YESTERYEAR: RWANDAN GENOCIDE BEGINS (1994)


Rwandan Genocide Begins (1994)

In 1993, after years of conflict between the Hutu and Tutsi ethnic groups in Rwanda, a new accord was signed and a UN peacekeeping mission was established. However, when Rwanda‘s and Burundi‘s presidents were killed in a suspicious plane crash in April 1994, civil strife erupted on a massive scale. Rwandan soldiers and Hutu gangs slaughtered an estimated 500,000 to 1 million people, mostly Tutsis and moderate Hutus, in the 100 or so days before the Tutsis regained power. What has happened since? More… Discuss

NEWS: FIRST RINGED ASTEROID IDENTIFIED


First Ringed Asteroid Identified

An asteroid orbiting the Sun between Saturn and Uranus has become the first asteroid identified as having rings. Until now, this feature had only been observed around the four gas giants, Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune. The 154-mile (248-km) asteroid, Chariklo, appears to have two distinct rings—one 4.3 miles (7 km) wide and the other 1.9 miles (3 km) wide—separated by a gap of about 5.6 miles (9 km). Given the rings’ crisp edges, astronomers suspect that Chariklo also has at least one moon, though none have yet been discovered. More… Discuss
