Busy as hell is no way to be

We've been busy as hell the past couple months. This month looks less painful, so maybe we'll see you around.

We'd like to give a shout-out to the Percolator, who remodeled her digs as well as getting digs of her own. The new Blogger, now in beta, looks like it will be the perfect opportunity to make some changes around here, too. (It's gonna have category tags, people!)

Sorry. Don't know where all the LiveJournal sentimentality came from.

Check this out: Richard Pevear, half of the masterful husband and wife translating team that has done Dostoevsky proud, translated The Three Musketeers this month. We've only started it, but it is mellifluous. Dumas was the Spielberg of his day, or more specifically, the Spielberg-Lucas of his day: Before Indiana Jones, there was D'Artagnan. Speaking of which, The Last Crusade was a damn good flick. That Irish lass who played Dr Schneider seems to have all but disappeared since then, unfortunately--apparently she has problems with on-screen nudity and won't even take a role as a scantily clad vixen. Damn shame.

    Wow. I guess Google really does totally own blogger now...
    I have been Pevear's evangelist for years now, so I'm glad there are other faithful out there reading his translations. To think Core made us read the stupid Garnett version!
