READIN started out as a place for me
to keep track of what I am reading, and to learn (slowly, slowly)
how to design a web site.
There has been some mission drift
here and there, but in general that's still what it is. Some of
the main things I write about here are
listening to (and playing) music, and
watching the movies. Also I write about the
work I do with my hands and with my head; and of course about bringing up Sylvia.
The site is a bit of a work in progress. New features will come on-line now and then; and you will occasionally get error messages in place of the blog, for the forseeable future. Cut me some slack, I'm just doing it for fun! And if you see an error message you think I should know about, please drop me a line. READIN source code is PHP and CSS, and available on request, in case you want to see how it works.
READIN has been visited approximately 193,907 times since October, 2007.

"My baby does her hairdo long" is post-Soft Boys and pre-Katrina & The Waves -- for some slightly older Rew (and a bearded Robyn Hitchcock!) check out this clip from the 1977 Strawberry Fayre: The Waves and the Soft Boys
Daniel Pinkwater makes an appearance on NY State's 8th grade reading comprehension test... Kudos to educator Deborah Meier for the observation that these questions are “an outrageous example of what’s true of most of the items on any test, it’s just blown up larger.” (via cleek)
