permlink NPR : Johnny Carson, 30-Year 'Tonight' Host, Dies at 79

Johnny Carson, 30-Year 'Tonight' Host, Dies at 79 [NPR]
[From his last show, May 22, 1992:] "And so it has come to this. I am one of the lucky people in the world. I found something that I always wanted to do and I have enjoyed every single minute of it."

permlink Ivar and Sten

Any time I go to Ikea, I am unable to get the first few lines of this poem by evalyn parry out of my head for the whole trip:
Ivar and Sten, Ivar and Sten:
I feel like I’m living with big Swedish men
in my bedroom and bathroom and kitchen and den:
my burly companions, Ivar and Sten.

Klinga and Omar, Duktig and Benn,
My home is so organized since they moved in...

...There’s a place you can get them, wherever you are,
whatever your standards, they’ll raise the bar:
all you need is some cash, some muscles, a car
(since getting there’s always a little bit far)...
