Haven't posted anything besides "comments" in a few days. Mostly because I've tried to balance the blog's tone between Fun and Light! and Serious Ruminations on the State of Things -- which leaves me wanting for material when news is slow, and little to say when feeling neither particularly fun nor light. Anyway. Today is a chemo day so I'll be offline until later this afternoon, but I wanted to jumpstart a few more conversations here.
- As a quick update, I plan to foray into a little photoblogging later today. Thrill to my new golf clubs! Share in the geekiness of another of my nerdy hobbies, authentic hockey jersey collecting!
- This gag is for, like, literally 3 people (Abe, Larry & Mark), or any other Emory alums: at the Braves game last night, Abe raised the burning issue of which fraternity Chipper Jones would join had he attended our alma mater. Abe opined it would be our very own Delt. I say Beta (maybe Sigma Nu). One could even make the case for Phi Delt. Now Dan Kolb, on the other hand, would clearly be a Delt. Thoughts?
- Hollywood is famous for poor judgment and questionable decisions, and in that vein Tracy and I recently discussed some of the oddest casting choices in film history. My favorite is still "Denise Richards -- nuclear physicist!" I don't remember which Bond movie that's from (and I lack the time to look it up), but suffice to say the whole theatre burst out in incredulous laughter at that one. One example of odd-good, however, is Rodney Dangerfield's small role as the abusive father in "Natural Born Killers." Seeing a comical, self-deprecating persona in that way was just creepy. Kudos to Oliver Stone on that call. Any other ideas? Feel free to comment.
