    Interesting analysis from @ptak on Twitter:
  3. I don't have a copy, but for pre-1950 Cole recordings like this, I'd check the Straighten Up and Fly Right discography. You might be able to borrow a copy via interlibrary loan.

    I assume you have the premium version of MalwareBytes that provides real-time monitoring. I don't have much experience with that version, but if you're going to be accessing blog links to any of the various cloud storage services like Mediafire, you should be running two browser add-ins: uBlock Origin and an industrial-strength pop-up blocker like Poper Blocker. That combination will kill almost all of the more egregious attempts to inject ads that border on malware, unwanted redirects, and pop-ups that ignore the built-in pop-up blocking function in most browsers. You can still allow "good" pop-ups on a case-by-case basis.

    At the end of last season it was all but a foregone conclusion that Keuchel had played his last game as an Astro, but the longer he has continued to remain on the free-agent market, the more speculation there seems to be about him eventually getting re-signed. For quite some time it seemed like Gonzalez had a far better shot at returning than Keuchel, but that possibility was significantly diminished as soon as the Astros signed Aledmys Diaz.

    There's also a companion disc of sorts to the Cinema box set that focuses on the French New Wave: Le Cinéma De Michel Legrand Nouvelle Vague I had not seen the Anthology previously (I have the Legrand/Demy and Cinema sets) - it looks like a great set, but those asking prices are a non-starter.

  8. There's still at least one active cartoonist whose skills are comparable to the old-school guys, Gasoline Alley's Jim Scancarelli. But more often than not, GA has been recycling older strips of late (with the exception of the recent arc commemorating the strip's 100th anniversary), and there's been plenty of speculation as to how long Scancarelli will continue drawing it before opting for retirement.

    I have a very similar thought every time I hear some SiliValley techbro utter the word "disruptive".
  10. "Boston Charlie" appeared many times in Pogo over the years around Christmastime - here's a Sunday strip from 1971:
