  1. I don't think Taxi Driver was his best performance, but, when I hear his name, the first thing that pops into my head is "You talkin' to me?"
  2. As I was looking over categories, I thought "show runner" or some equivalent category would have been a good one -- looking at the collective bodies of work of Milch, Gilligan, Sorkin, Schur, etc.
  3. Already got mine. I get every year. My city had a drive-up flu shot event -- I did not even have to leave my car.
  4. Just finished Bob Woodward's Rage. Up to Woodward's usual standards and recommend (although most of the juicy bits have been spoiled). I won't say much more as don't want to turn into PSF. Next up is Susanna Clarke's Piranesi. It has been getting some pretty good buzz.
  5. Watched the first episode of How to with John Wilson on HBO. Sepinwall had a good review of it. A bit bizarre and awkward — documentary style that mostly plays off some social awkwardness by Wilson, and mixing script with B-roll footage type stuff. But it was laugh out loud funny at times.
  6. On average, I'd say that apple fritters are better. But the best long john that I've ever had is better than the best apple fritter that I've ever had.
  7. I can understand wife's anger and would support how she wants to handle it. I think everyone needs to understand that just trying to get through COVID with health intact is about all that many can hope, and be thankful, for. Nobody should take anything personally. I live in the DC area. My mom is up in NJ, and my parents-in-law live in NM. I haven't seen any of them since Jan/Feb. We sometimes talk about doing something with either set of parents to try to make it work, but we've never been able to figure out something that all of us are comfortable with. Won't see for Thanksgiving and Christmas either. No hard feelings on either side -- everyone understands that just looking out for ourselves and each other. Just a ****** situation, as who knows how many more Thanksgivings and Christmases will be able to have together.
  8. I may be too late with this suggestion, but if you are hanging out near Dulles, you can check out Ocelot Brewing. It is only a few minutes away from there. I'm not sure if you have seen mentioned in the beer thread, but it is owned by Sebowski's brother.
  9. To put in for a couple of categories for judging, if they are up grabs. Gally might throw a fit if I take too serious business of a category (at least Cecil B. DeMille predated TV); so, I’ll request: 1. Game shows 2. Commercial
  10. Closed this week on a 30 year at 2.75%. Chad was the man. He got my rate locked-in just in time before the 50 bps fee hit.
  11. Manhattan with Whistle Pig tonight. ETA: A second one, because why the heck not.
  12. Government crackdown on protests today. Link Nationwide strike starting tomorrow.
  13. Transcript here.
  14. Oh my, I just noticed the first reply. My eyes!
  15. Assuming you’ve read McPherson’s Battle Cry of Freedom.... Shelby Foote’s trilogy is great for another comprehensive telling. Stephen Sears some good stuff on the battles. For biographies, there’s Doris Kearns Goodwin’s Team of Rivals, and Donald’s Lincoln. Lots of great stuff on Grant, like Ron Chernow’s biography and Grant’s own autobiography. I just recently finished Blight’s biography on Frederick Douglass that won the Pulitzer for history last year. (ETA: Fierce Patriot on Sherman another solid one.) I enjoy the years around the Civil War too. Stuff like Potter’s The Impending Crisis on the years before, and Eric Foner’s Reconstruction on the aftermath. I could come up with some more, but hopefully that is a start.
