Abstract: Point projection is the most common and common-sense way to produce a 2-D image of a 3-D scene. Its effect is to shrink the size of objects as their distance from the image plane increases. For a set of parallel lines in 3-D not parallel to the image plane, the distance between them shrinks and they intersect in a "vanishing point". There are thus as many vanishing points in the image as sets of differently-aimed parallel lines in the scene. Traditional one-, two-, and three-point perspective are thus special cases. Completely theoretical and untested how-to recommendations are given, along with illustrative, sometimes surprising, and a few pathological imaging situations. Foreshortening is thoroughly differentiated from perspective. 21 Figures.

Flash! Motivated by Department fun run, upped training a bit and in summer of 2006 cleaned up in the 60-65 category in various shorter races. Never got up to 10K but took 2nd in a 5-miler. Anyway, "surviving is 90% of winning", as Woody should have said.

The FDA has twenty thousand different drugs to take,
So we thought, "What could we produce to give you all a break?"
A drug that could treat anything from leprosy to SARS,
And you can take it in the mouth, IV or up the arse.
We tested it on animals and none of 'em survived.
But that's OK 'cos when we wrote the paper up -- we lied!
Now it's first choice for MI, MS, and even for ME,
And COPD, HIV, PE, and DVT.
It makes you smart as Einstein and as muscular as Tyson.

Suzanne and I were in the chorus of Pirates of Penzance last year and of The Grand Duke this year. This show was set in the 1930's in the Grand Duchy of Pfennig-Halbpfennig. Here are a few Pictures by Dave Shafer, chosen according to the stringent and sophisticated aesthetic criterion: is this a picture of us?
Suzanne and self in "Thespis", G and S's first collaboration whose music is lost (or suppressed). We were lucky enough to have a brand-new score (not a pastiche of other Sullivan songs) by Quade Winter (who came to a performance).
Here I'm a low-talent ringer in a group including Suzanne (on left) and Prof. John Bennett, superior tenor. (Hochstein Chorale Concerts, HSOM June 2004 and 2005).
Classical guitar is an instrument played by socially phobic overachievers under a brutal regime of constant discipline until the results begin to approach what a guitar is truly capable of. By then, all but the best are broken men and women.

Fernando Sor demonstrates that eye-rolling, heaven-appealing expression of controlled good-humored disbelief, exasperation, and forebearance common, I'm sure, to all guitar teachers.

By Popular Demand: the "Live on Stage!" verse:
It was Spring when you promised me your love, dear,
But by Summertime that had not come to pass--
As late as Fall, I wished you'd kiss my lips, dear,
Now in Winter, I just wish you'd kiss my [Flatt G-Run].

After my Nth humiliating guitar public performance I decided maybe I was less of a recording failure than a concert failure.
