Release the Kraken!

No Comments on Release the Kraken!

I just turned in the final paper due for this semester,  a full day before the deadline because the professor said in his email “I will look more favorably upon papers that are turned in BEFORE the Friday deadline”.


That means you’ve just thrown down the gauntlet and made the deadline Thursday instead of Friday.

I accept your challenge, Dr. Professor.

So, that means the only thing in front of me are final exams next week. The online CANVAS system has no upcoming assignments and that means the OCD portion of my brain cells can all breathe a collective sigh of relief.

My second semester is almost over, all work is turned in, and it’s time to observe a tradition I started at the conclusion of last semester:  two fingers of Kraken rum over rocks, and the replaying of Elmer Bernstein’s Magnificent Seven Theme. If you’ve never heard/seen Elmer himself conducting, this is a real treat if you crank up your volume:

Magnificent 7 Theme – Conducted by the great Elmer Bernstein

Joyful AND triumphant!

While you’re listening to that, and watching Elmer get the bass section to pay more attention to his queues, be sure to check out one of the very coolest websites I’ve run across in a long time, and release your inner Kraken!
