the perfection of imperfection (short philosophy)

by netsky / November 15, 2004 11:33 AM PST

I operate very largely from my private store of facts and natural intelligences. Very often i mis-state some details large or small in my essays or opinion pieces.

This is a deliberate sloppiness in me. Deliberate for two reasons. One is laziness and the dusty reality that no man can be truly expert without devotion to just a few topics of study.

I'm a small-itemizer kind of thinker, as previously stated in other threads. LOOK at small trivias, where Cindi answered a posited question in oppostion somewhat, to what i'd "stated". And this did not, does not rankle me to be partially or even largely shown wrong.

FOR what i did is spur some reader to LOOK UP the data to find err on my part, or to answer more to themselves than i supplied. I increased someone's appreciation for small things which are really, quite important in the sum total.

Another reason i am not well read or studied: To keep my form of thought and expression relatively orginal.

I do this by nature- i don't WISH to "fit in" nor do i need constant approvals you know... i don't require validation for my good essays like the Principal episode...

JERRY HERMAN, that famous Broadway composer was Ernie's apartment mate at UofM in 1951. ZBT Fraternity. Best friends, absolutely!

First musical by Jerry Herman? "I Feel Wonderful" all by Jerry, as always to this day. That show even went on to play from UM's "studio M" (a story there) to off-Broadway.


Another Herman show is reviving shortly on Broadway.

I asked Jerry myself: Do you listen to other composers, show tunes, anything?

NO he does not.

Jerry does not read music. He plays piano by ear. He would LIKE to learn to read music.. but that is not in him.

Our friend, Jerry.. The World's friend, Jerry...

a major example of the

Perfection of Imperfection

a more humble, gentle, kindness of a man you'll never meet.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
