I watched a documentary on 80s Group B rally and I can’t believe the danger those folks took on. Unbelievably fast cars on unbelievably scary rally stages. The drivers were insane, but are now true legends of motor sport.


The Pike’s road is paved these days but the runs up it are still legendary. The climb streams Sunday morning on the Mobile 1 YouTube and Facebook pages.

[short clip] On a TV appearance toward the end of his life in 1988, Serge Gainsbourg was surprised by a choir of children (Les Petits Chanteurs d'Asnières) in full Gainsbourg regalia--black jacket, gray wig, sunglasses, Whisky, cigarette, unshaven-and brought to tears by their homage to one of his classics "J'e suis venu te dire que je m'en vais".

7 hour live stream of the Queen's Funeral.


YouTube will not let me embed the link --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tm6IqVcTFk

No commentary (media) - just as I like it. 

If you need a program -- https://int.nyt.com/data/documenttools/order-of-service-the-state-funeral-of-her-majesty-queen-elizabeth-ii/e506247f5e4c2545/full.pdf

I had some tears here and there.

Similar,  settled on 

Ignored the talking heads ("what does it mean to you?") until they mostly let the event speak for itself with some minimal added context - plus some royal historians straight out of central casting, with insights of recent additions (like using naval ratings instead of horses to pull the gun carriage / coffin C.1901)


Pagentry, pomp and circumstance, and Joanne thought the choral music was on point.

The gathering of the heads of state alone would have made it an historic event on the world stage.

Definitely some poignant moments.
