Talk about too true for comfort.
It is sad when anyone dies at 43. Lots of people will remember Chadwich Boseman for Black Panther, but this story…this is how I want to remember him. Did you know he visited kids with cancer? Neither did I, because he wasn’t making sure you knew it. He did it because he had a big heart. And when he learned how much those visits meant to those kids did it swell his ego. No, it humbled him.
I am tempted to do this, but I’m afraid George would treat it as a lunch table…and I don’t mean the nuts.
D12: Get on my driveway
I admit, I wish there were young kids in my neighborhood running down four consecutive lawns playing football in the fall. I’d rather that than the quiet we have.
I think these are pretty interesting. I’d like to do something like Slumbering Ursine Dunes in the campaign for my nephew. I’m going to try this.
Book of the Week
My current daily short story for the Bradbury Challenge comes from The Menace from Earth, although I’m halfway through it. Yes, I’ve read them all before, but not during the challenge. Except for the first two I haven’t read them in years. Some, I barely remember and only know I read them because I owned the book way back in the 1970s. Given the newest stories are from 1953, you’d expect them to be very dated. They are not.
Even if you don’t read the whole book, seek out “By His Bootstraps” which may be the ur snarled time travel story. The first part of “The Year of the Jackpot”, like the parts of Heinlein’s Future History that describe the Crazy Years, hits too close to home. It did before 2020, but now it is a harder hit. “The Menace from Earth” inspired part of the background to J. Daniel Sawyer’s Hadrian’s Flight.
Song of the Week
Sure, it’s from over a decade ago, but last night I got “Ooh La La” by Goldfrapp stuck in my head. Now you can get it stuck in yours.
Video of the Week
The best thing about Jun’s Kitchen videos is after I watch one, I don’t think my cats are spoiled.
