This is a mailing list inspired by that scene in Fahrenheit 451, where the elders sit around campfires passing down to others the information and wisdom of the books they've each memorized. Subscribe to this list and discuss anything which deals with the world of arts and ideas, languages and linguistic issues, world affairs, or cultural trivia (because trivia is the molecular level of history). Any member may post in any language. Updates of when new content and new translations are posted on the site are also sent to the list.

The Civil War is over
And World War One and Two
If we can live together
The dream it might come true

Underneath the concrete
The dream is still alive
A hundred million lifetimes
A world that never dies

We live in the city of dreams
We drive on the highway of fire
Should we awake
And find it gone
Remember this, our favorite town.
