Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

So in 2020 Boston sports fans saw Mookie Betts sign with the Dodgers, Tom Brady with the Buccaneers, and now Zdeno Chara with the Capitals. Fuck you 2020!... Still one of my favorite Venn Diagrams... Morbid thought but am I the only one surprised to learn that Gene Hackman is still alive? He turns 91 in January... If you think about it - the novel Moby Dick is an exhaustive story about an elaborate murder-suicide... Wallaby Pockets would be a good name for a young adult lit hero character. I think the Harry Potter series of books would have been 10% better if the title character was called Wallaby Pockets instead... So according to the NYT Hilaria Baldwin cannot self-identify as Spanish. But what if her preferred pronoun was Senorita? Would that meet their moral guidelines? I find it amusing that if she instead wanted to be known as Henry Baldwin the NYT would instead be crucifying anyone who criticized Henry's choices... Beethoven on a Fender Guitar would be a good name for an a cappella group...

  1. Gene Hackman retired abruptly and has stayed out of the public eye which lends itself to forgetting he's alive. Eastwood is only 5 months younger, but he has acted in or directed about a dozen movies since Hackman retired so there's no doubt about Eastwood.
