  1. Meat! RIP! I first learned of Meat while watching Fight Club. I thought it was hilarious that someone would call themselves such a stupid/hilarious name. The fact that he played "Bob" made it even more funny. Later I'd find Bat Out of Hell, Rocky Horror, and his other works. I love him as a performer. Listening to his stuff is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Everything he does is always over-the-top-as-hell and that makes me happy. Glad he'll be reunited with Jim Steinman in the thereafter so that they can keep on suing each other and making music.
  2. Thanks, everyone! Back in December I was hoping to do a bigger party, but then Omicron happened. I ended up having a nice dinner with family and will hopefully do something bigger with friends once the COVID wave is fully broken in late February or March.
  3. Station Eleven The last thing I'd think would be worth watching would be a show about the fallout from another global pandemic. This one starts slow with lots of separate threads. The beauty is in how they all come together. There are some great moments. The cast is great. Lori Petty and David Cross as the mother and father of a stage troupe that circles a post-apocalypse Lake Michigan just works. Watching the show gives me some of the same feeling I get from reading a good book. I'm not surprised that the show-runner is a novelist. I'm excited to see what he will do next, and I think I'll be picking up one of Ms. St. John Mandel's books too.
  4. Happy birthday, memelord!
  5. Happy birthday, Barista-in-chief!
  6. Rex Stout - Fer-De-Lance. My first Nero Wolfe. I like it! I think I’ll for sure be coming back to Nero and Archie for some more fun mysteries in the future. - At a friend’s suggestion I did an experiment and read this while listening to music in the background. The friend mentioned that having ambient music on while reading helped their brain having something to bounce off of when they inevitably lose focus on the book. There might be something to that. It seemed to work for me. I burned through the book a lot faster than I usually do in just two evenings.
  7. Because I must be half-dyslexic I read the title as “Caesars instead of Case-ers.” Happy Boxing-Day eve, everyone!
  8. Happy birthday, Ric! Double nickel!
  9. Something to do next time I am in NYC? https://www.edgenyc.com/en/cityclimb
  10. Just finished the Broken Earth trilogy by N.K. Jamisin. Fabulous! Each of the three books won the Hugo award the year it came out. All three are deserving winners. I’d rank this as my second favorite sci-fi series of the last decade after the Three Body Problem books.

  12. Thanks for the recommendation, CS! Truly some amazing footage. The parts where they came upon other climbers in distress in the dead-zone are extremely harrowing. What a wild athletic achievement. I remember when that Everest photo went viral. To have hit some of those mountains at the precise window for the entire year is a testament to luck, but also to his skill and and the skill of his team.
  13. Oasis - Knebworth 1996 Great live set! Hard to believe it would be all downhill from here.
  14. RIP Stephen. The titan of American musical theater of the last 50 years.
