Haply the Queen-Moon is on her throne (by res ipsa loquitur)

No, that's not by me. That's by Keats.  

Speaking of whom -- and his beloved, the intelligent, creative, independent Fanny Brawne, whose movie this really is -- did you see Jane Campion's Bright Star?  Lovely still from the film here.  More info on Fanny and Keats here.  So nice to see a new Jane Campion film. It had been a long while. 

Speaking of movies, I saw Synecdoche, New York this weekend and am curious to know what people thought of it.  I generally appreciate Kaufman's ambition and his willingness to confront big ideas, but I find the getting-there excruciating.  "Synecdoche" was no exception.
