Flashy

The Leonid Meteor Shower is supposed to be peaking tonight. Unfortunately we've got an intermittent overcast here, so the sky is apt to be veiled. It's cold out, too, so I don't know that it would be worth my while to haul out the chaise and watch. I did see a couple of brief flashes scar Orion last night, but I didn't linger outside long then either. I don't deal as well with the night chill now as I once did.


Other news from the Internets: I remember a street in Covina called Lark Ellen Avenue. I used to see the exit sign from the freeway as we passed by. I never thought much about the name, but tonight the Internet churned up the news that it was named for a famous soprano who retired to the area in the 1920s. "Lark Ellen" was the sobriquet of Ellen Beach Yaw, who lived until 1947. I'm a bit surprised that I'd never known of her before. I'm also just a bit disappointed that they didn't name the street Yaw Avenue. Yaw is a funny name.


Useful-ish link: Film Reference. I'm not entirely pleased with the way the individual pages are arranged (filmographies and such seem a bit disordered), but it's way faster and, I suspect, more thorough than IMDb is for those areas in which their subjects overlap—primarily information about individual actors, directors, and films, etc.—beside being refreshingly free of those graphics-fat ads that contribute so much chaos to IMBd pages.
