I’m your density | back to the future
Crispin Hellion Glover (yes, that’s his real middle name) unleashed his book/art/slide-show/performance/film event for an audience of around 1,000 people on Friday night, through the offices of the James River Film Society and the Byrd Theatre.
If you’re of a certain age, you’ll remember Glover as George McFly, the eccentric father character from the 25-year-old popcorn classic Back to the Future. There was also the strange appearance on David Letterman in 1987 (and he’s been back since). In Oliver Stone’s The Doors, he played Andy Warhol. In the first Charlie’s Angels film, he was introduced to a new generation as a creepy villain.
Glover is an actor and artist who believes that much of what passes for entertainment is really subliminal propaganda for a corporatist society. The majority of movies in cinemaplexes do not pose genuine questions. This irritates him so much that he’s been traveling for years in support of his books and films, and he’s now looking to start his own film studio in the Czech Republic.
Glover had a long history of obtaining old books on obscure subjects and remaking them using cut-and-paste techniques and illustrations. His performance piece was entertaining and had the Crispin Glover-esque influence (somewhat marred by overexuberant misbehaving fans in the audience).
Q and ba episode 6: i am your density
With this fantastic Crispin Glover tee, you will help save the Clock Tower. Wait, fate, he’s your density. Lorraine Baines must be welcomed to the dance by George McFly, otherwise all hell will break loose in the future. How would the world ever get the perfect, puffy vested, time-traveling Marty McFly if they don’t make it to the dance? Well, if Marty hadn’t foolishly forced his father out of the way of his grandfather’s car, there wouldn’t have been a need to bring his father and mother together at the party.
Strange Cargo understands how the future should be, which is why you should get this amazing original “I’m Your Density” logo on your favorite tee shirt as soon as possible. As you approach 88 miles per hour in your DeLorean, you’ll look amazing in this great tee (which will need some plutonium from Libya or a well-timed lightning strike to hit 1.21 gigawatts). With this great “Back to the Future” tee shirt exclusively from Strange Cargo, you can stand up to Biff Tannen, make rock and roll history, and get wild with Doc Brown.

Since 2004, Oxford Languages has selected a “Verb of the Year” that represents the year’s “ethos, mood, or preoccupations.” The “winning” term is also likely to have cultural meaning in the future. Some members of the River Campus Libraries (RCL) would suggest “de-densification” as a term for 2020 based on those requirements.
The libraries will continuously monitor—and share—patron density in Rush Rhees Library using Occuspace, a sensor-based technology that scans for Bluetooth and WiFi signals. Sensors have been located in Evans Lam Square, Gleason Library, the Martin E. Messinger Periodical Reading Room, the south (blue) Martin E. Messinger Graduate Study Room, and the Barbara J. Burger iZone as part of the project’s pilot phase. Sensors can be built in other sites, such as the Carlson Science and Engineering Library, in the future.
Well before the outbreak of the coronavirus, the RCL wanted to know how many people were using its facilities. The gap is now filled by this newly introduced technology. The RCL joins the likes of the University of California, Santa Barbara, and North Carolina State University, among others, in embracing it.
