Despite All My Rage

Two posts in one day. I'm in a sharing kind of mood.

On my drive to campus today, I realized (quite belatedly) that the reference to the Smashing Pumpkins song "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" in yesterday's lecture on "The Pace of Life" probably went over most of my students' heads, as the majority of them were born in 1991. Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness was released in 1995.

And here I shall insert some of my favorite lines from TS Eliot's "The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock":
"I grow old... I grow old...
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled..."
