See Post 757— "Release Date"— and The-Numbers.com
on a film with the release date 7/3/85.

* Title of a course at Harvard. See (for instance)
the Harvard page on The Numerology of the Beast

"Now in math the magic is not in special numbers
like 7 or 28, but in the fabric of number systems…."

Sure it is.

Lament for a DJ

In memory of Philadelphia DJ Hy Lit, who died on Saturday at 73:

"Chuck Berry didn't need prompting to insert, in his 'Sweet Little Sixteen,' the lines 'Well, they'll be rockin' on Bandstand, Philadelphia, P.A.' I remember 'Bandstand' before it was 'American…' It started in 1952, when Walter Annenberg, whose Triangle Publications owned the WFIL radio and television stations, suggested an afternoon TV dance party…."

— Richard Corliss, TIME magazine, July 14, 2001

She gets 'em one by one."

And the girl in the corner is ev'ryone's mourner.
She could kill you with a wink of her eye."

— "Ballroom Blitz," by Sweet
