Some of the Coldplay “Clocks” lyrics

Lights go out and I can’t be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
Brought me down upon my knees
Oh I beg, I beg and plead

Come out of things unsaid
Shoot an apple off my head
And a trouble that can’t be named
A tiger’s waiting to be tamed

You are
You are

Confusion that never stops
Closing walls and ticking clocks, gonna
Come back and take you home
I could not stop, that you now know

~ from the song Clocks, by Coldplay

Owensboro’s mosaic mural of mirrors getting an update

Way back in my first year of college I went to Kentucky Wesleyan College in Owensboro, Kentucky. A teacher at the school named Gary Bielefeld created the mosaic mural of mirrors shown in this image on the side of a building in the downtown area, using two tons of glass. Per the video, more than 9,000 drivers see the mural every day when they go over the blue bridge that’s just to the left of this parking area. For more information, see this 14news.com story.

Steve Sarkisian, University of Colorado football coach (or not)

It was an interesting afternoon to watch a Wikipedia entry. With the University of Colorado looking for a new head football coach, I saw this tweet saying that someone changed Steve Sarkisian’s Wikipedia entry early this afternoon (2/20/2020) to show that he was the new head coach at Colorado.

When I looked up the IP address at the bottom of that changelist — 128.138.184.70 — I saw that it was a University of Colorado IP address. But later in the afternoon it was reported that Sarkisian was staying as the offensive coordinator at Alabama and getting a raise, so his Wikipedia entry was reverted about 2.5 hours later.
