Saw this comment about Homicide: Life on the Street on this LGM thread attributed to crime novelist Trevanian:

[P]retending that criminals are masterminds is a way to cover up the incompetence of police.

Useful to remember regarding our National Security State and the National Media as we approach the anniversary of 9/11 and lose our minds all over again about ISIL/ISIS.

Humor often accompanies sadness.

As this Groucho Marx joke via BoingBoing attests, humor and depression can go hand-in-hand.

If you wanted to watch Robin Williams movies online, Time.com has a list.. We haven’t seen the last of him; he left us with four pictures in the can.

I said this to a friend via text message:

“In your teens and twenties you think you’ll ‘grow-up’ and do important things.  By your 30s and 40s you realize that “only” means being a good husband and father”.

That’s okay, right?*

*Said while watching relevant music videos from the 1990s and early 2000s and “120 Minutes” clips while drinking beers with the dog.

Probably going away, but…

I always considered myself Team Nirvana (and not Team Pearl Jam).  The reality is that Pearl Jam now is probably better than the eventual disappointment that would have been Nirvana.  That said, someone posted the entirety of Nirvana’s induction in the Hall of Fame. That they invited the women with them they did is just icing on the cake.
