20 of 25 at trivia last night and we came in fourth! ive already forgotten the missed questions.

two were jeff goldblum related. what movie does he kick a three legged dog? and what 2002 movie did he play somebody's godfather? might have been a little more to go on for the second but nothing really helpful. i guessed the answer to the second as the answer for the first.

what michael jackson video was partially shot in the hoyt-schermerhorn subway station? a bonus question (bonus questions are for a free round of shots) asked what young director made the madonna vogue video?

one question named a character from human centipede which was the answer. just figure no one has seen that. maybe theres a horror buff out there.

final missed question -- what was the 2002 kevin bacon movie inspired by an hg wells property in which he plays the part of sebastian caine. the category was mad scientists?

i got us a free round of shots on the bonus question -- who wrote dr. faustus?

 

question from trivia night for LOTR nerds - who cut the ring off sauron's hand?

bonus question for guitar nerds - what band did bassist and lead sing phil lynott front?

no googlin'.

does that banksy stunt make it more or less valuable?

At a farm stand near us in CT they keep a list of all birds seen on the farm on a blackboard. Nice idea. Thought Alex would enjoy it.

Very happy with this!!

you up?

dont know whats worse -- that my parents brought me to this when i was 9 or that they made me endure it.

 burt reynolds, the end.

that anonymous op-ed the times published today is sumpin'. i, for one, am ready to follow john mccains lead and unite as one country behind an increased military budget and tax cuts for the rich just as soon as i mend my nike socks that i cut up in a pique. also, have a pair of tickets to the new yorker festival. now that bannon has been removed from the pogrom i just dont see the point. who wants to listen to judd apatow drone on about garry shandling for another four hours?

Chez P. last week......so many tasty things, my main below

Giant bugs marching down Jay Street. Run for your lives!!!

Let's be clear about this before any nonsense starts. M6.2 quake just now offshore Oregon is not related to the Pacific "Ring of Fire", nor does it indicate a sudden activity increase. The quake is caused by horizontal transform faulting out in the Pacific -not a subduction event”

wasnt a lot of buzz around hbo's succession early on but it has picked up steam as its gone along. the finale just aired yesterday. think i still have three on my plate. theres much palace intrigue regarding the business that somewhat mirrors the murdoch empire but its more a family drama albeit one about the super rich replete with an overbearing patriarch and a bunch of damaged kids trailing in his wake.

and hbo doubled down on wealthy fucked up family dynamics as the lead in is sharp objects with amy adams as the deeply damaged child and patricia clarkson as the impossibly passive aggressive matriarch and leading citizen of a small town in southern missouri.

both are worth watching though i wouldnt recommend watching them in succession.
