1. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Undead: the trailer is here and it looks like a riot. Interesting to see Jeremy Sisto there playing a NY homicide cop with a certain natural authority. Someone should hire him to do this on a network TV show.

2. Happy Solstice!

3. Epigram: Sun Day
In dreams before they died, the dead
tattooed the sunless sky with shapely scars.
The spinning planet bows its head
with slow precision to uncaring stars.
[edited to add, now that the sun has set]
4. Happy Hannukah!
