Notes & The New spanning_time Creed

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

-- from "Leisure," by W.H. Davies

- The above phrase appears in a very excellent article from the Washington Post. It describes the results when a celebrated violinist took up his instrument to play in the arcade of a Metro stop during rush hour. Great exercise, and a very worthy read despite its length. If that article doesn't reinforce the spirit of this here blog, we don't know what does.

- spanning_timer Ario spent the weekend in San Francisco. He was lucky enough to be there for the ultimate in s_t events: Bring Your Own Big Wheel. For this event, adults grab a big wheel (you know, the one for kids) and race down San Fran's hilly streets. Much like our own Idiotarod, it involves costumes, drinking, and a whole lot of fun. It's definitely on our list of things to catch someday. For now, view the link above. We'll share pictures once they show up on Flickr.

- Last night's video game festivities were more fun than we expected. They certainly need more marketing help (we'll remind you next month), but with the dual tournaments for Guitar Hero 2 and Street Fighter 2 (on the Super Nintendo!), they've got an idea we're willing to support. We came in third in the latter tournament, which was surprising since we spent the bulk of every match trying to make sense of the oddly mapped controller buttons.
