The Stones still got it

I guess the guitar solo could be longer, if I were picking nits.

But that's a classic car. And Sydney Sweeney looks pretty good, too.

Who's your favorite daughter on Petticoat Junction?

My vote goes to Lori Saunders as Bobbie Jo.

What kind of idiot threatens a guard with a handgun?

For some reason, my random YT picks have been inundated with videos of people harassing the Household guards at Buckingham palace, or the US Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Some of these clowns point hanguns at the guards, or clubs or other weapons, or try to grab the horses of the Horse Guards.

I know there are a lot of fools out there, but what would compel someone to do something so idiotic? They usually end up in front of a magistrate, which I guess is the high point of their vacation.

Naked meaty thighs

Because I can never remember what day it is.

I've lived too long...

I just learned that there are organizations called "Major League Eating" and "International Federation of Competitive Eating," and now I want to curl up in a corner and cry.

Last Pirate to get 40+ HR in one season: Willie Stargell in 1973.

I saw this stat today and was frankly shocked. With the helium-inflated baseballs in use since the 90's and the emphasis on the long ball, every other team in baseball has had at least one 40+ HR hitter in the 21st century. Fifty years for the Pirates.

Man, I knew they were bad, didn't know they were that bad.

I'm tired of the threats, I'm tired of the media hanging on to everything DJT does...

... the overblown rhetoric, the fear-mongering of the media, the breathless bombshell reports that come every time Donald Trump gets a hangnail... I am sick and tired of hearing about this jerk and the jerks who love him.

He crawled to his indictment like a whipped dog, and all the Manly Men swearing Revolution Now were conspicuously absent. How long do we need this pattern repeated to understand that Donald Trump is not worth a pitcher of warm piss, as John Garner said? Will there ever be a time he is treated with the contempt he deserves, rather than validated and exalted by a bunch of spineless pundits out for a few more clicks?

Your most memorable meal.

What was it, where was it, when was it, and why is it memorable?

For me: dinner at Le Gavroche in London in 1990, featuring the incomparable souffle suissesse. The House's signature dish. Memorable because of that and everything else, that sort of dining experience is amazing for a poor boy like me. Well, it was also memorable for lightening my purse by about 200 quid, three-star restaurants aren't cheap. But I knew that going in. It was a deliberate extravagance never to be repeated

It's that time of year again...


Try not to cry.

"Watching" old baseball games...

There is, or was, a site where one could watch a graphic play-by-play of a past baseball game based on the box score. The screen was similar to one of the text-driven simulation games: a generic ballpark with the names of the players in their positions, and then a textual description of the result of each at-bat, with runners set on base when appropriate and the official scoring of the play in a box under the field. The site drew on the box scores of thousands of games dating back at least as far as the 1950's, maybe more.

I can't remember the URL of the archive, which I lost in my last computer meltdown, so in desperation I'm, asking if anybody here knows WTF I'm talking about. Mr Google has been of no help.
