Like it says: odds & ends; I’ll try to post this once a week to track things I read, quick updates, thoughts, links, etc.
Fishing was rained out. :(
The Penguins lost games three and four to the Predators. It made Princess very sad.
Then they won game 5 last night! She’ll accept it.
One more win for a happy Princess!
- This one’s been on repeat all week:
Chromatics – Lady
I guess that one’s the official video, but I like this one better:1
- I finished Norse Mythology.
Now breezing through David Lynch’s Catching the Big Fish.
The Mayors of Pittsburgh and Paris: We Have Our Own Climate Deal
“Though separated by an ocean and a language, we share a desire to do what is best for our citizens and our planet. That means putting aside parochial politics and embracing the global challenge of fighting climate change. In doing so, we can create a cleaner, healthier, more prosperous world for Parisians, Pittsburghers and everyone else on the planet.”
Yay Pittsburgh! And then Mayor Peduto was at Foley’s. Kicking myself for not making it there.
The Bizarre Circumstances And Shaky Aftermath Of Norm Macdonald’s Dismissal From Weekend Update
A little bit of SNL history I didn’t know. The Letterman interview is great. Plus, I learned a new word:
- quisling: a traitor who collaborates with an enemy force occupying their country
Apt for our times.
Twin Peaks: The Return – Episode 5: I don’t know what to think at this point. This was the slowest episode so far, but hopefully it’s just one of those ‘moving the pieces around the board’ ones. I don’t feel the need to rewatch it like the first four though. That said, patience seems to be the key.
Logan: I want to watch it again in black and white, but not for a little while. It was a poignant sendoff for Hugh Jackman’s version of Wolverine. Superhero movies where they have grounded, personal stakes are so much better than the constant “saving the world” plots. 2
Snapped some photos at a poetry event at Torn Page… still getting used to my new camera, but I’m having fun with it so far:
Rick Snyder’s Snykus brought the humor:
Gracie Bialecki brought the emotion:
Always amazing. This one is worth the watch.
Probably some photowalks! And watching Game 6. Foley’s should be a madhouse.
That said, I can’t wait to see Wonder Woman! ↩
