Steven B. Smith Poetry Recap

The Rarely Photographed Lou MuenzLast night was a great night for po­etry. Everyone picked out ex­cel­lent po­ems by Steve Smith, and he re­ally seemed to en­joy be­ing there and hear­ing his stuff read. The weird­est point in the evening came when this gen­tle­man gave a mini-lec­ture on Heisenberg and Pauli and a sort of mys­tic hy­poth­e­sis of dis­cov­er­ing sub­atomic par­ti­cles to el­e­vate sapi­ency. [or some­thing like that, the guy is ei­ther a lit­tle batty or way to smart for his own good. It was also af­ter 1 in the morn­ing, so I was start­ing to think at cati­corners.] All the pho­tos in the set may be found here. For in­ter­est­ing con­ver­sa­tions be­tween eru­dite minds like Heisenberg and Pauli, check out this MetaFilter thread.

  1. I got the whole Heisenberg lec­ture on tape. I’ll have to ad­mit that I was more in­trested in go­ing to bed at that mo­ment. However the man seemed to have the at­ten­tion of every­body. It was quiet ex­cept for his voice.
