Comedy Of Errors

 Over at Shakespeare's Fans
we have a really fun discussion with Comedy Of Errors. We are reading one act per week. Taken from dictionary of Etymology here is "error" sourced from the meaning of "wandering"...

error (n.) Look up error at
also, through 18c., errour; c. 1300, "a deviation from truth made through ignorance or inadvertence, a mistake," also "offense against morality or justice; transgression, wrong-doing, sin;" from Old French error "mistake, flaw, defect, heresy," from Latin errorem (nominative error) "a wandering, straying, a going astray; meandering; doubt, uncertainty;" also "a figurative going astray, mistake," from errare "to wander; to err" (see err). From early 14c. as "state of believing or practicing what is false or heretical; false opinion or belief, heresy." From late 14c. as "deviation from what is normal; abnormality, aberration." From 1726 as "difference between observed value and true value."

Words for "error" in most Indo-European languages originally meant "wander, go astray" (for example Greek plane in the New Testament, Old Norse villa, Lithuanian klaida, Sanskrit bhrama-), but Irish has dearmad "error," from dermat "a forgetting."

The Tragically Hip - Poets


How this song holds up and seems more profound twenty years later. I gotta share a couple of songs thinking about my ol pal Murdoch who died a year ago today.

Don't tell me what the poets are doing, right Murd?

Paper From Southwest Conference For Popular Culture, New Mexico

I've been adding stuff to my Patreon page.

People do ask me from time to time...what the heck am I writing about and what am I working to visit this site PATREON. which is designed to help artists and writers have rapport and support with patrons and audience is a great idea. I just haven't done anything to promote it.

Anyways, here is the paper I presented last February....and I have been writing more on the same topics. I am also going to add citations on a separate part of the "creator pages" . I also have some short Buddhist film reviews there.

I seem to have forgotten how to link here in my posts...thats how out of it I am argh!!
