Phlogisticosh. Rhomothriglyph. Floof. - Which is not unduly obvious, as I am about to explain
Phlogisticosh. Rhomothriglyph. Floof.
I'm way behind on e-mails and LJ comments, but I didn't see this mentioned in any of my friends' journals, so I thought I should say:

Rest in peace, Stanislaw Lem.

I see the eigenvalue in thine eye,
I hear the tender tensor in thy sigh.
Bernoulli would have been content to die,
Had he but known such a^2 cos 2 phi!

Looking through Wikipedia's entry on him, I didn't know he wrote Solaris, yet another film I've never seen. But the entry helped point me to Andrei Tarkovsky, whom I now know was the director of Stalker, which I was exposed to in half-sleep many years ago.

In a very Zen manner, those who would know of his passing had no need to be informed, it seems. ^_^

I have to watch Tarkovsky's version of Solaris again soon. (You've seen Stalker, I presume?)
