I took a walk through this beautiful world
Felt the cool rain on my shoulders

I took a walk through this beautiful world
I felt the rain getting colder

Mr Cyn, who spent 20 years in the restaurant industry, woke me at 5 AM with the devastating news. If you eat out today, please tip generously. The staff will be hurting a lot.

National Suicide Hotline. They’ve helped me several times. You are not alone. 1-800-799-4889

His stance on Kissinger really provides new meaning to the old refrain, “And yet Henry Kissinger still walks the earth.” What a tragedy.

@mellbell: Or is it “stalks”? Hmm…

@mellbell: I vote “stalks.”

@Mistress Cynica: I saw the alert go off on my phone as I was trying to look up a song on Spotify while walking out of the train station this morning around 8 am my time. I was floored by it, and so was everyone who walked into the office.

The news wrecked me for all the reasons Nojo describes on his next post. I used to go to Les Halles when I worked in NYC and he was just as he was on TV: funny, profane, took no shit, delighted in people enjoying food.

@JNOV: What rptrcub said.

@rptrcub, SanFranLefty and everyone here, thank you. My son thanks you. You’ve helped keep me here.

Needed respite? The final episode of Sense8 is on Netflix. As with other episodes, there are some moments of pure joy.

@JNOV: We’re really lucky that the Wachowskis are on our side : )

@JNOV: Half-hour joy, two hours confusion. The Wachowskis really know how to set up a premise, but once Keanu flies into the sky, things keep getting muddy.

@nojo: I cried real tears once (not at the end). The Depeche Mode scenes thrilled me. A lot of it wasn’t so good. Okay, quite a bit was damn bad. The “These are the Bad People” behind the whole whatever was going on was superfluous. I’d be cool with pods fighting pods or having a dance off or whatever.

Have you been watching Westworld? No spoilers, I promise. The latest one was ten times better than Dances with Wolves. I love the music in that series. I still watch the opening, and I think they put an Asian twist on “Paint it Black.” I don’t like the original, but I loved the covers in that episode.

They pulled out the Radiohead (again), but “Heart Shaped Box” worked well.

@¡Andrew!: Riiiiight!?

@JNOV: Ah, Westworld.

For starters, I crank up the opening. Sorry, neighbors.

First season was masterful. Second season has been somewhat aimless, or at least sideways. Not disappointed as such, but they gave themselves a hard act to follow.

Last night. Fuck.
