Loreena McKennitt singing Prospero’s Speech from Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

Now my charms are all o’erthrown,
and what strength I have’s mine own,
which is most faint: now, ‘tis true,

I got the REGENSTEIN?! I DEMAND A RECOUNT.

(Sorry Joseph Regenstein it’s just that your library is the ugliest damn building on campus except for the Max P dorms and, like, the square batch of graduate school?? or whatever buildings below the midway.)

(AND, obviously, if I’m going to be a building, I am going to be one that is FLANKED BY FLYING BUTTRESSES, i.e., possessed of a spiky, impossibly tall beauty that belies an incredible fortitude.)


Fair Beatrice, I thank you for your pains.

Fair Beatrice, I thank you for your pains.

Fair Beatrice, I thank you for your pains.

Fair Beatrice, I thank you for your pains.

Fair Beatrice, I thank you for your pains.
