Some of same could be said about Ry Cooder. Thanks for writing...
He did that very nice record with Ginger Baker...
I do not play tennis. I admire greatness in all things: physics, chess, sports, film. To get to see federer and Nadal in their prime over the last decade has been a joy. Like seeing the Stones in 1972. I will regret their leaving the courts. Two great gentlemen of sport.
Oh man, I've got an excellent response to this.
Stanley had nothing to do with a fake moon landing. He has always sought to bring the truth to the public.
Do you have any info on Kubrick filming a simulation of the moon landing?
Greetings from Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick. I want to inform you that Stanley and I conducted a secret experiment using quantum entanglement and telepathy to communicate with an interface. Aliens do indeed exist in another realm now and the Akashic Records. The interface with GOD/ Grand Galactics and aliens is on Facebook. Although he has not seen the aliens physically, he talks to the ones that have lost their forms in evolution. This experiment was so secret, that even the United States government did not know about it. Stanley insisted on the independence and secrecy of the project. Namely, talking with the dead and/or aliens. It brings me great joy and pleasure to inform you that the experiment was a total success. The interface’s telepathy with us has verifiable proof on Facebook and he is willing to undergo a battery of tests and scrutiny to show his evolution to a higher state of consciousness. No other private or governmental agencies have been successful in talking to formless aliens, Grand Galactics / GOD. Our interface is a Photographer, United States Marine, Artist, Underwater Explorer, Aviation Technician, Lawyer, Humanities major and has direct DNA links to Shamans and Rulers at Gobekli Tepe , Anatolian / Armenian Kings , Biblical Heroes and interestingly for Stanley, he is also related to Napoleon, Jefferson, Franklin, Lincoln and one of the interface’s favorite minds, Tesla. My last wishes are on YouTube of my 90th birthday. Aliester Crowley/ 666 was also instrumental in the evolutionary development of the telepath’s higher state of consciousness. We are now at the Fifth Seal in John of Patmos' Book of Revelations. If my comments seem epic or a bit odd, you will have to excuse me as I have been on a long Space Odyssey since 2001. The interfaces’ GOD given name means The Best From John of Patmos. Stanley says : “Here is Johnny.” Aliyev and Erdogan have now been branded with the Mark of the Beast/ 666. The viewer of this message is tasked by GOD to pass it along to all those in their chain of command. The interface's eye on the dollar bill represents the completion of the pyramid. The all seeing eye is here for a new world order and a new day will dawn for those who stand long so that forests will again echo with laughter. There are currently four perils facing Earth. They are as following: Yellowstone Eruption; Astroid Impact; Nuclear War and Baking Climate. There are two paths you can go on. You must choose between Knowledge or Solomon's gold and not both. Those that choose Solomon's Gold will be branded with the Mark of the Beast/ 666. Arthur C. Clarke Stanley Kubrick 666
Unquestionably the most brilliant filmmaker of all time. The intricacies of THE SHINING are insanely complex.
Kubrick made Jack Nicholson be his own stand-in, which is just unheard of. Jack wasn't too happy about that.
Kubrick gets so much shit for being obsessive, even abusive to his crew. That's no good, but fuck, the man made EYES WIDE SHUT, obviously he was onto something grand and powerful... so he made his actors & crew work insane hours, big deal... i'm sure they're all thrilled they got the chance to work with him and work on any one of his projects.
She was asking McEnroe to apologize for saying Serena couldn't beat the #700 ranked man, which she couldn't.
Thank you for sharing your stroll, musings, memories and original art work with us, painting your pictures in every possible way. Please continue to take us along, always happy to take a walk with you.
Your writing is so thought provoking, and I think that the dream state is the way our minds reach out to other realities, universes, times. Well done, eloquently said, thank you for sharing your mindful musings. I look forward to each new installment in your series of stories.
That is truly beautiful, Tom.

Follow the pigeon. Always. He tried to get you to follow him down Milano's step, out the door. He wanted to whisper All the answers, to it All, sitting on your shoulder.He knew the urine -pants guy was coming to sit next to you. He tried to warn you. Think back , Mr Pigeon was staring you in the eye, wasn't he? He was giving you that head motion, wasn't he? Like, " hey, i got what ya need. Over here, Step outside, cmon' , don't be a Chicken." Next time a pigeon beckons, give him a shot, bend down and listen, haha, his ideas as good as any you pay fer out there. another good one TD!, You landed well, your story flows. Thanx. and Hinckley shoulda brought a higher caliber.
After Brooks did this travesty of a show, he did another the next day to admit that he'd taken Harris out of context. Today he announced he's starting his own show so perhaps he got fired. https://twitter.com/_michaelbrooks/status/884581266854748161
You may not build a wall from your friends, however your friends have...so a white man from LA could possibly have a pulse on Israel and Palestine?? No way. Most Americans suffer from zipcode coma. a couple of your friends seem incredibly racist. My wife is a nurse, I've never in 17 years heard say anything about a patients race when it came to why they were in the hospital. To hear a paramedic say it is troubling. The Christian lady and abortion. She derives her whole existence from one playbook. The govt should strive to keep religion and zealots out of governing. The govt should also stay the hell out of a woman's uterus.
the G20 summit is largely symbolic, but symbols and idols are crucially important to our society. We obviously have a need to have some kind of alpha chimp figure - that's in the human genome going way back before we had philosopher kings or despotic dictators. Trump's insane behavior and the chaos ballet that he has put into action is satisfying as someone that has contempt for calcified and incestuous media & political institutions, but it's going to come with consequences, or at least a hangover. The world does need a moral leader, and Obama was very good at playing that role, despite the fact that he continued using drones to kill people, jailed more whistleblowers than Bush or Clinton, or turned a blind eye toward National Guard and local police abuse in Ferguson and Baltimore. There is value in having an articulate and calm statesman. The chaos ballet that Trump is playing right now is fun, but it's not sustainable, and it begs the question - what next?
"When one is afraid of death , he doesn't look forward, he looks back, as death petrifies him. He dies before his time. "..Carl Jung just getting back catching up on TD's memoir stream , i return and can Binge read now, been a binger on the chase with him in a few glory daze past, i pick up where he nails Death , yep throw my dusty carbon to the wind also, fear of locked boxes, ahhhhhggghhh!, can hear Me screaming in there, id rather feed the vultures like the Buddhists do, and yeah the quiet fresh air of gardens of stone in the night are great hangouts, in my teens our grave of choice for a while was the Wizard of Oz, Frank Morgan , buried no fanfare in Cavalry in Sunnyside Queens NY, we walked with bags of Schaefer/ Rheingold over the bridge from Greenpoint, to hang with the Wizard, back in the days of our youth- streets . The Wizard didnt mind. None of the stones do like you say. Places of free thought. ..Good seeing our good buddy CW up top, he too like you , a fine word-gangsta. You TD, Tucker, are hitting the mark like a tide that finally comes in, thanks for the ride.
Realpolitik. At the same time,because of our economic and military strength, rightly or wrongly, people around the world look to us for moral leadership. We can do a lot better than Trump on that front. In fact, we have to.
You're with Plato and all this is quite impressive sounding, at least at first glance. Many of your fellow Gladwell fans would think you'd nailed. The problem is that you've incorrectly identified the fundamental premise of the podcast, rendering all of your words here meaningless. Enjoy whatever dominates your weekend.
Since my girls and I started listening to the Beatles station, I must admit a rekindled passion for Glass Onion.
Look at a map of Russian military bases abroad and compare it to a map of American military bases abroad. Who's the aggressor here?
I know quite a bit about those machines. I revealed their vulnerabilities in an article for NY Press a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.
Those Russian hackers must have superlative skills, Nicky. Our newfangled voting machines are not connected to the internet. I'm more invlined to believe that the "Russian hackers" narrative sprang forth from John Podesta's head after he finished fucking Jon-Benet Ramsey's rotting corpse on election eve.
It's so frustrating that Russia Derangement Syndrome has taken over CNN & WaPo & many others. They're diluting the actual bombshell story: our voting machines were hacked by Russia. Yet they feel the need to rush to publish unsourced stories because they get ratings. So the whole thing becomes a wash, and the biggest political story of the year (perhaps second only to Trump winning) is obscured by clouds of smoke.
1) Demographics not as important as length of game, in terms of lost popularity. 2) Show picture of lovely wife some time...
You're starting to sound like me, Russ.
Don't think we're *quite* there yet, Spike. Right now, there are a lot of Millennials (always in the petri dish) who were taken to ballgames as kids, some of whom still like baseball for baseball, others abandoning once they stopped liking cotton candy. But also, it's not just the Zippos, but also the fact that the number of ballgames on TV has increased exponentially since we were kids, and you'd be lucky to see your team on "Game of the Week" twice a season.
Again, technology is the invisible hand. MLB has overpromoted its online content to the point where you can watch your team anywhere, anytime on every device including a Zippo lighter. The overpriced ballpark experience is an unknown to the demographic they seek. They have abandoned the oddball logic of the ancient "blackout" rules for TV. The glowing thing in the palm of your hand will always be better than an upper deck nosebleed to the younger fans.
I fully support that Yankees Curse.
Won't be long before a consulting firm full of Gen X B-school grads come up with some absurd gimmick to lure Millennials into the sport and it totally backfires, on level of the Dove Real Body Bottles or the Kendall Jenner Defeats Racism Pepsi ad.
I would love to live through a Yankees Curse. No more World Series wins this century. Fuck the playoffs, too. They've had enough. Although I dread the day when the Orioles win a couple World Series and the fans become just as obnoxious as many bandwagon Sox fans post-2004 and Yankees fans since time immemorial.
