Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)
Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.
This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

More Sad News--'Captain Kangaroo' DiesFor those of you my age who grew up with television, this is particularly sad. I loved Captain Kangaroo, and the goofy sight gags, and the ring full of keys, and the door with all the little doors, and Mr. Green Jeans, and Mr. Moose, and Mr. Bunny Rabbit, and Dancing Bear, and Grandfather Clock, and the fact that he would sit down and read. I've said it before, but one of the reasons Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel is still one of my favorites is because I heard it read on Keeshan's show. It was very personal, as if he was talking just to me.
Captain Kangaroo was fun and and clever and informative, which I know from first hand experience at having to endure numerous stupid Japanimation Saturday mornings with Pokemon and Digimon and Yu-Gi-Oh and Sailor Moon. Yep.
