Al Stewart: Kim's Corner

October 3 2012

Posted on October 3, 2012

I'm anxiously awaiting my copy ... but I have heard very good reviews of the new concert DVD.  I know the folks involved, and I am certain it is going to be an amazing addition to any Al Stewart fan's collection.  If you can't make a show you can pop this in, and it will be the next best thing.

When you are an Al Stewart fan it is difficult to go through a day without encountering a "reference" of some sort. Thank you to fan extraordinaire Mari for these links. www.radiotimes.com/episode/r6cxz/a-history-of-the-future--series-1---4-nostradamus 4/10. Juliet Gardiner explores the prophecies of Nostradamus, whose book Centuries became an instant bestseller in Europe after it was published in France in 1555. The presenter examines the writing style and how the text has been seen to represent the anxieties of societies in different eras.

www.radiotimes.com/episode/r6nr8/a-history-of-the-future--series-1---5-leonardo-da-vinci 5/10. Juliet Gardiner turns her attention to Italian Renaissance painter Leonardo Da Vinci and 15th-century Florence's political and religious turmoil influence on his visions of the future. Among his many designs for warfare, she highlights drawings that seem to foreshadow the modern tank and helicopter. Featuring contributions by Evelyn Welch and Martin Kemp.

Sent in by an Al fan in Ohio.  Sounds like a road trip to me.    This is the ONLY thing that would get me to OSU.  Wouldn't it be lovely to just FILL the place with hard core fans, coming in from all over the region?  No shows for Al scheduled at that time yet. Friday, January 18 @ 7:30 p.m. Reading - "Al Stewart's Lyrics" ~ FREE! Although primarily known only for his biggest hit "Year of the Cat," Al Stewart is a songwriter of surprising versatility, poetry, and historical sensitivity. Come discover the works of this unjustly neglected artist. Location: Constance Corkwell Baldwin Fireside Lounge, Warner Library Information: Director Dave Williams @ 740.366.9474 or williams.1343@osu.edu

On my way to work this morning I heard two stories on wine on the radio that made me think of Al. The next time you take a sip of your favorite wine, you might want to make your first toast to hornets. Or, more precisely, European hornets and paper wasps. http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2012/08/02/157606554/thank-the-simple-wasp-for-that-complex-glass-of-wine Researchers at Cornell University will be releasing two new wine grape varieties, and they're asking the public to create names for them.  Wouldn't it be great if Al's fans could come up with a name honoring him that they would use? http://www.npr.org/2012/08/02/157764152/name-that-new-grape -- Kim
