A perfect ‘Columbine‘ anthem….
“Pumped up Kicks” by Foster The People
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks*
You’d better run, better run,
Outrun my gun…
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks

Liquid light. I can scarcely imagine it.
What type of light is “regular” light anyway? I have a hard time seeing it as solid! I’m unsure, from this article, which way we’re moving on the density scale.

After viewing this documentary, you may never again see Jack Nicholson’s performance in The Shining, nor the movie itself, in the same way. The documentary’s general thesis maintains that Stanley Kubrick used The Shining as a vehicle to admit his role in helping to fake the moon landings.
“Room 237” refers to a room in the mountain lodge where the action of The Shining takes place, suggesting the 237 thousand miles mean distance from Earth to the moon as it was reckoned in 1980, according to one of the narrators.
