This caught my ear this morning, as I was reading an article on Slate.com. It's the oldest recording ever, of "Au Clair de la Lune," made by Frenchy Edouard-Leon Scott de Martinville. They don't know the name of the singer, but who cares, right? Oldest. Recording. Ever.

I promise.

Have you noticed something? I haven't done a review of anything since this summer. And even that was an exhortation to get you yahoos out to the movies. So here's a promise: When I get done with the Rebus series by Ian Rankin, I will review not one, not two, not even three, but the entire Rebus series, from "Knots and Crosses" all the way to "Exit Music". Along the way, if something catches my fancy, piques my interest, or grabs me by the cockles of my heart and shakes like a mad dog, then I'll write about it.

It's not safe for work (language, people!), but... it's just awesome.
