The variations on the cell phone tune were interesting...

Since I was hooked into playing the organ at school and church, not so great and mostly without pedal, I did get a gig to play at a wedding at the age of 17.  This was a really big chunk to chew. I realized that my future depended on doing well as one builds up confidence from success, not failure. I was more or less terrified but it turned out OK in the end, and I didn't give up playing music.

     I predict Tom Brady will not play for the Patriots after the coming season. The thing about Belichik is he's got lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eyes.......aw, I didn't mean that exactly, not black anyway. It's more like if you look into the abyss, the abyss will trade you to Cleveland.

     You know when you can't remember something and you know there's something you know but can't remember?

     You do?.....that's.......good......I forgot what I was going to say.

My playing the organ was a temporary digression, not to be repeated...

The repetition of digression is not necessarily a bad thing.

So in one of the extras, titled Sci-Fi Visionaries, there is part of a 1988 interview with Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry.  There is, undeniably, a great deal to his credit for having (in effect) created one of the enduring franchises of US Pop Culture.  Nothing of what he actually did or contributed, would I ever presume to try to take away from him.

But if he really believed that America waited for Star Trek in order that television shows could be “about something,” Mr Roddenberry was not paying attention.

I miscounted, and have one lasagna noodle too many. Which, I suppose, is preferable to miscounting, and having one too few.

I'm fairly certain I'll be going to my grave with the Blade Trinity sight unseen.

     I'm using black salt, putting my pink Himalayan salt away for now.

     

     What happened was I went to the supermarket looking for peppercorns and noticed they had black salt, which I'd never heard of. What was I supposed to do, pretend I didn't see it?
