On William Stafford, and further apologies: Tuesday's Overlooked Films and/or Other A/V delayed till this evening (this time for sure).

Yet further apologies for the further delay. A remarkable confluence of work, family, health, and financial issues is really quite taxing...and taxes aren't even in the mix.

I'll be assembling the usual list of kind donations of time and effort to tell us about some of the audiovisual wonders and pleasantries we might've missed (and a few warnings about what we're lucky to miss if we do) tonight.

Apologies for the delay and thanks for your kind patience (and contributions, contributors of reviews and essays). Most of this week's contributors probably contributed last time.

TM, your (rather too stymied) servant of A/V linkage

This special takes a look at the life, career and impact of the beloved Oregon poet laureate, lifelong pacifist and National Book Award winner William Stafford. Through extensive archival stills, footage and interviews with Stafford’s children, colleagues and fans, they will delve into the significant legacy he has left behind. Stafford’s poetry appealed to a wide range of individuals across all walks of life. His influence can be felt by everyone from literary artists to public figures, Oregonians, and the thousands of students he taught over the decades as an English professor at Lewis and Clark College. Get to know the art, life and legacy of Oregon’s famous poet laureate William Stafford on the 100th anniversary of his birth.

Hi Todd, no reason for apologies. Your time and presence is required for more important things. All the best to you. I'm holding on to my last week's entry.

Well, thanks, Prashant, but no reason to delay anything on my account!
