Review: Uni-Ball Signo RT 0.38mm Light Blue

Uni-Ball Signo RT

I enjoy a good light blue pen, and I love the Uni-Ball Signo RT line, so this pen should be a no-brainer, right?  Close, but no cigar.  The pen writes well enough, but I'm just not getting into the shade of blue.  I like my light blue pens to be bright, but this one leans a bit to the dark side.  Not hideous, but I have several other light blue gel pens I will grab before this one.  I'll keep this handy in the backpack for a while to see if I get into it a little more.  (My original Uni-Ball Signo RT review)

On the other hand, a song I am extremely into right now is "John Allyn Smith Sails" by Okkervil River.  It deals with the life, and more importantly, death of American poet John Berryman.  I had never heard of John Berryman before digging deeper into this song, and the more I read about him, the more I want to read him period.  I am going to have to pick up one of his books before long.  The song doesn't have an official video, but the quality of the concert footage below is pretty decent.  I am also including a link to the lyrics in case you can make our my tiny handwriting - that was a lot of lines!  If you do decide to listen to it, be sure you make it to at least the second half of the song - Will and the gang shift gears towards the end.  Enjoy...
