The Return of the Evening Edition

Waking up at 5.00 a.m. may be teh suck, but leaving at 3.00 p.m. is teh win!

Whither Monday Night Karaoke now?
Or was that Tuesday nights? Clearly I never went there. Anyhoo, sad news for some as another one bites the dust. The Alcohol and Gaming Commision shut down the Bridge Tavern on October 11 for serving booze without a license [story runs ten days later, thanks Windsor Star *thumbs up*].

Judging by the financial details reported in the article, don't look for it to reopen anytime soon.

One for the word nerds
Saw this on the ol'Daily News, thought I would share for all my word loving peeps: Philadelphia based poet Ron Silliman will be doing a free reading this Thursday at 7.30 p.m. in Salon C of the Ambassador Lounge in the CAW, as part of the Transparency Machine Event, co-sponsored by UWindsor and Wayne State. Described, thusly:

The Transparency Machine Reading Series invites poets to discuss their work in the context of other texts they select. The seriesengages poets in discussion about the practice and theory of writing poetry. It aims to offer readers and writers a multi-dimensional experience of the shapes and sounds of contemporary poetry by inviting leading and emerging innovative practitioners of the art.

Yikes! Sounds thrilling, I know, but it does seem like a cool event. And Sillman's a blogger! If you're interested, those aforementioned 'other texts' selected by the poet can be found here

Thanks again, media
Scientists at the University of Copenhagen say they've neutralized HIV in samples. Why has this not been more widely reported? Analysis would have been nice, too [see, it's not just us].

Briefly
UCLA psych prof says student-faculty fraternizing is A-OK. There are at least three jokes about Windsor profs I could make here, but you all know them anyway.

The latest in quick reference guides sheds light on all those pesky religions that are making things so tense these days

The days of ad-free Facebook are long gone, with the biggest thing since Google AdSense.

Twenty-four-year-old mourns the loss of his 82-year-old wife. Uh-huh.
