Not to Be Negative, But..

Posted on: May 12th, 2010 by wmapother 11 Comments

A few nights ago Entertainment Weekly threw a party for their Lost-centric issue.  Whilst there I encountered the mild-mannered Damon Lindelof, Lost’s co-creator, enjoying a cocktail, a well-deserved post-series rest and not bothering anyone.   [Just to clarify, this is he —>  ]

Sadly for him, however, he soon found himself Ethanized.  I somehow found an excuse — I swear, it seemed perfectly reasonable at the time (I think) — to inflict upon him an impassioned and (probably) dramatized introduction to John Keats‘ theory of negative capability, of which I have been immoderately fond since I was a wee college lad.

Today I emailed Damon the wikipedia link and he tweeted about it.  As is customary for Damon, he was kind enough to omit all the gesticulation and listen-to-this-ness.   [ And this is Keats —>  ]

By the way, if you find me blogging about tweeting ever again, please Ethanize me, I beg you.
