September Musings

"Every day, once a day, give yourself a present.  Don't plan it, don't wait for it, just.... let it happen."  Agent Dale Cooper to Sheriff Truman on Twin Peaks

Memorable Guest Performances

The name of the game is for heroic characters to be heroic.  But sometimes, even in badly written, cheesy, 70s scripts, guest performances can threaten to out-shine the heroes. Here's some of my favorites, and even a pair over-the-top characters that I felt detracted from the episode.

What Year Is This?

After the over-the-top, opened-ended finale to Twin Peaks: The Return last night, I feel like all I want to do today is watch the original series, and get to enjoy the charming, ultra enthusiastic Agent Cooper (who, as himself, got maybe a dozen minutes of screen time in 18 hours of The Return), and his growing bond and affection for the town and Sheriff Harry Truman.  And maybe re-read some of my own fanfic, since it's the only fic I know that concentrates on their relationship.

A Twin Peaks Prediction

So, when the Season 3, twenty-five years after the fact, was first announced, Michael Ontkean, who had played Sheriff Harry S. Truman (my favorite character), was on a frantic search for his Sheriff's jacket, which had been auctioned off decades before.  Then it was announced that Ontkean was enjoying his retirement in Hawaii and wouldn't be returning.

I Am What You Expect

"We awaken in others the same attitude of mind we hold toward them." -- Elbert Hubbard

Starsky and Hutch were both full of love when they looked at each other, and so they both lived a life that, despite all its frustrations, was full of love.

It's National I Love Horses Day

So, I'm choosing this icon from my limited choices, since William Shatner is a great lover of horses.

Mid Summer Mid Week Thoughts

By paying attention to the way you feel, and then choosing thoughts that feel the very best, you are managing your own vibration, which means you are controlling your own point of attraction - which means you are creating your own reality.  It's such a wonderful thing to realize that you can create your own reality without sticking your nose into everyone else's, and that the less attention you give to everyone else's reality, the purer your vibration is going to be - and the more you are going to be pleased with what comes to you.  -- Abraham-Hicks

An Oops Without Apology

In my old zine story The General, where Starsky adopts a dog for Hutch on a whim, I make mention of the Los Angeles Dumb Friends League.

Writing Again

Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works.  --Virginia Woolf

It feels great to be back writing again, after a break of quite a few months.  Rolling on the next "Adventure" installment.

Wealthy People I Have Known

I have limited icons, and a picture of Hutch was the closest I could come to for the subject of this post.

Here's to Thunder Snow

I've been watching Kentucky Derby telecasts since 1971.  Thunder Snow's not-gonna-run-in-this-shit antics is the funniest thing I've ever seen in a Derby telecast.  Think the glory of the winners is going to be over-shadowed by the horse that had a fit and didn't finish.

Kind of hard to take a horse from the Middle East and give him experience with running in slop....

I'll be real disappointed if Jeanne Moos of CNN doesn't do a piece on him this week.

This is best clip I've seen: https://twitter.com/DanielleDozier

So, here' to Thunder Snow... for making the Derby downright funny.
There's nothing quite like tough guys being vulnerable.

The Road Less Traveled

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. -- Robert Frost

This phrase makes me want to cry at the beauty of it, for embracing this idea has been responsible for many of the most wondrous things that have happened in my life.
