  1. Route 66 TV Show

    One episode from Season 3 called "Lizard's Leg and Owlet's Wing" co-stars Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney, Jr. and Peter Lorre. It's not a particularly strong outing, but it's as kitschy as they come.
  2. Now reading...

    The recent Reacher books have been borderline over the top. It's like Child has to keep upping the ante to keep things interesting. If you want to read the best of the bunch, I'd recommend "61 Hours". I've heard if they do another movie, it will be based on this installment.
  3. 11-CD, 1-DVD box set from Chris Rea released in 2005.
  4. State Farm commercials

    The State Farm bundle and many other commercials must have some appeal at some level, but to me, they're not just stupid, they're annoying. Considering that nothing happens in advertising these days without copious amount of background research, whoever green lighted these ads must've been convinced the were on to something. And, who knows? Maybe they're right. Maybe seeing Aaron Rogers or Pat Mahomes is all it takes. Me? I'll take a heaping helping of woodchucks chucking wood.
  5. You're already a jazz fan or you wouldn't be here.
  6. "Whiplash (as reviewed by a jazz musician)" This kid is one of the reasons people don't like jazz. He's arrogant, dismissive and all-knowing...a musical gas bag. You know what I think. I think anything that exposes people to the music and perhaps creates a desire to drill deeper is a good thing.
  7. 2019-2020 MLB Hot Stove Thread

    I was wondering what this had to do with the hot stove discussion when I remembered that baseball and domestic violence share the word "battery."
  8. For those of us of a certain age and a fan of the game, Larsen's no-no remains a touchstone. All the more so if you happen to be a life-long Yankee fan. So what if his final pitch to Dale Mitchell was high? Here's his obituary as it appears this morning in the New York Times. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/01/obituaries/don-larsen-dead.html?action=click&module=News&pgtype=Homepage
  9. Jack Sheldon

    Just saw him last night on an episode of "Dragnet 1970". As many are aware, Jack Webb was a big jazz fan. He used Shelton numerous times on his shows. Funny and talented guy.
  10. The bass clarinet

  11. Don Imus has died.

  12. Don Imus has died.

    I happened to be listening to his show on 9/11. Riveting. interesting guy. Many times...laugh out loud funny. He used to do interviews with long gone historical figures like General Patton and Richard Nixon. And who will ever forget Wilford Brimley talking about Thanksgiving and the right way to stuff your bird.
