What say you?
Proper pea soup takes 4 hours. I'm on hour 2 1/2.
Less than 20 bottles of wine remain. In case you're worried, I've given away about 4 cases as gifts. Hopefully next years will be equally successful.
Brief Weather & I Guess a Sort of Vision (scroll) is valuable reading. Tony goes for the heart because that's where he finds affinity. This is something.
My most luddite of friends has a website.
The two clips below are from Samuel Fuller's Shock Corridor. Been thinking a lot about this movie and Fuller's work. I'll hopefully write more here about these thoughts in the next few days.
My Dice Man Cometh title was the same title that appeared on the back page of the Boston Herald today. Yes, I'm excited to learn we are on the same wavelength.

Out of the Past. The only actor who I like better than Robert Mitchum, is this guy. If you've never seen Out of the Past, I highly recommend it.
how many Chet Baker albums do you own?
Candi Station. I forget how much I like her. That's some kinda sexy.
Love this from Grandaddy's "For the Dishwasher":
Ride your bike all night and give your heart a break.

Word of the Day
Definition 1: (1) (Rare) Of a windy nature, full of air or wind (and, by extension, pompous), as spring and autumn are the most flatulent of the seasons; (2) containing a great deal of those very smelly gases created by bacteria in the intestines that occasionally slip out of the posteriors of unsuspecting humans and animals.
Usage 1: Today's word works well when you have to talk about this unpleasant subject without using the equally smelly colloquial expressions for it. A flatulent person is rife with flatulence but they do not flatulate since no dictionary recognizes this word (yet). The gases which cause an eruction, another gaseous Word of the Day published recently, are completely different from those involved in flatulence.
Suggested usage: Unfortunately, when a lovely word like this one picks up a meaning related to a bodily function, all its other meanings quickly pale and evaporate. However, if you are clever, you can put the two meanings of today's word to useful effect: "Greta said that the senator's speech was flatulent; I am not sure if she was referring to his pomposity or bad breath."
Etymology: Today's word blew our way, via French, from Latin flatus "wind, a blowing (out)." The original Indo-European root was *bhlo/bhle "blow," which came directly to English (avoiding French) as "blow," "bladder," "blast," and blather "to prattle," from Old Norse bladhra "to talk like air blowing out a bladder." "Isinglass" is the output of the folk etymology (influenced by glass) of obsolete Dutch "huizenblas" from hus "sturgeon" + blase "bladder," a material somehow remindful of today's word. (We hope Ray Johnson's mess hall at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas didn't bring today's word to mind—or nostril; I guess we should be grateful that he thinks of us when words like today's occur to him.)

"But this brain to the inners of his skull must stick"

Listening to a lot of African music lately.
What's your favorite Coolidge? You can give three if necessary. If you don't respond to this question, you're lame. I'm keeping track.
OK, & you're three favorite pitchers of all time?
