Condolences, Wayne. My brother in law got killed in a bike accident this afternoon. 38yo, father of two, 6 and 3 yo kids. I can't find words to say how stupid and nonsensical is this.

Some of you have seen this on Facebook, but I wanted to post it here as well. I don't feel like typing up anything different, but I love you guys and wanted to share this. Today marks the 25th annive

RIP ZoeBelle Lawson, the 17.5 year old miniature poodle in our family. https://instagram.com/zoebelle_lawson She had a good run. She was adopted as a pup by a 70 year old couple, who kept her until

Apparently We'll meet Again was recorded with accompaniment from a Hammond Novachord, a 163 tube polyphonic synthesizer. Only manufactured from 1939 to 1942 (because the supply of tubes dried up as the War progressed)

RIP Ian,..

I was thinking of him in a round about way the other day.

Lately, I've been taken by the flat picking savant Molly Tuttle and I was trying to remember the first name of DeNiro's character in Brazil (Harry).

After googling, I couldn't help but notice how many of the leads actors (including Ian Holm) had passed. 

Curse like,..

Charles Webb, Elusive Author of ‘The Graduate,’ Dies at 81 
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/28/books/charles-webb-dead.html?referringSource=articleShare

“He had a very odd relationship with money,” said Caroline Dawnay, who was briefly Mr. Webb’s agent in the early 2000s when his novel “New Cardiff” was made into the 2003 movie “Hope Springs,” starring Colin Firth. “He never wanted any. He had an anarchist view of the relationship between humanity and money.”

He gave away homes, paintings, his inheritance, even his royalties from “The Graduate,” which became a million-seller after the movie’s success, to the benefit of the Anti-Defamation League. He awarded his 10,000-pound payout from “Hope Springs” as a prize to a performance artist named Dan Shelton, who had mailed himself to the Tate Modern in a cardboard box.

At his second wedding to Ms. Rudd — they married in 1962, then divorced in 1981 to protest the institution of marriage, then remarried around 2001 for immigration purposes — he did not give his bride a ring, because he disapproved of jewelry. Ms. Dawnay, the only witness save two strangers pulled in off the street, recalled that the couple walked nine miles to the registry office for the ceremony, wearing the only clothes they owned.

Lots of people momentarily embrace the idea of leaving the rat race, like the characters in “The Graduate.” Mr. Webb and Ms. Rudd did it, with all the consequences it entailed. If they regretted the choice, they did not say so.

“When you run out of money it’s a purifying experience,” Mr. Webb told The Times of London after the couple moved to England. “It focuses the mind like nothing else.”
