Willam Blake and Meatloaf

I just opened one of my holiday gifts. I inserted the CD into my computer. And I installed the software.

Now I get to play with it.

What does it have to do with William Blake?

Not much, except he did write a poem entitled: The Tyger. Here’s the first verse:

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

And the software I just installed is named Tiger.

I guess I could have made a reference to Frosted Flakes.

Music I Should be Listening to Right Now: Paradise by the Dashboard Lights

    As I scanned the lists of
    “notables to die in 2005,”
    a name briefly popped up,
    and was then lost again
    in seas of mightier sounds,
    greater waves crashing
    and splashing their surfs
    on sandy salty shores,
    where my tears run down
    and join briny waters deep.

    Ah, yes, I have it back now,
    on a printed page, a listing,
    on 22 May 2005 there died
    notable Thurl Ravenscroft, 91,
    growling Voice of Tony Tiger,
    purring “They’re grrrreeeat!”

    One never knows how to spell
    out the words of such sounds;
    a name I’d not heard who said
    a sound that rings in my head,
    and almost makes me believe
    a truth of what it proclaims,
    so easily did it lodge in mind,
    like peanut butter smears lips,
    a lip stick that is so sticky.
