Here in Northwest Arkansas, 1-2 inches of snowfall can bring the entire tri-county area to its knees...in worship of the fact that we don't have the infrastructure to deal with snow or ice. So, the University has been closed since last Thursday while townsfolk try and fail to drive on frictionless surfaces; we've been on glorious vacation, venturing out to sled or holing up in our fortresses of solitude, dreading the return to our white, blue, or taupe-collared jobs.
But our vacation is probably coming to an end tomorrow, and in any case we braved the weather to take advantage of a captive audience.
We heard music from:
Eight Below, 2006 - Mark Isham
The Ice Storm, 1997 - Mychael Danna
The Empire Strikes Back, 1980 - John Williams
The Shining, 1980 - Wendy Carlos
