Norm Macdonald died.

Ten year cancer battle that no one publicly knew about.


Damn.

Despite kinda transitioning his wry curmudgeon/trollish tendencies a bit too far towards reactionary politics in recent years, Norm is a sure shot for one of the Top 2 Funniest People to Ever Live list.

Damn that sucks. Norm MacDonald was hilarious. His comedic style and pacing was confusing and off-putting to the casual fan of comedy, but if you watched him roll on, most came away in awe of his brilliance. Sad day and a loss of a singular comedic talent.

Itís still raining. I wish there was a system built that could send excess water to the west to fill up the water supply there.

On the plus side it feels amazing outside with the cloud cover and the wind.

Minor irritation. Had an email from AVG saying "thanks for renewing AVG ultimate we'll charge you £99 on this date." I thought this was a spam email so I didn't think much of it. I had another one telling me it was now renewed a couple of days later. Couldn't see anything suspicious on my bank account so I still thought it was spam.

Today I checked my credit card and realised they charged me on there! I don't ever remember signing up for this or passing details to them. They are going to give me a refund and all but it took me a couple of hours on the phone with them trying to get it fixed before getting there...

I agree. You don't leave your Van-life girlfriend in Wyoming, and then truck HER van all the way home to Florida to your parents place alone, lawyer up and not talk to the cops...if you're not hiding shit.

You may as well be MADE of red flags at that point.

Itís sad that his parents are backing him up. Iím sorry, but if I thought one of my kids may have killed someone, I wouldnít be on their side.

Apparently they arenít ruling out connections to a double murder at a camp ground in the same area Gabby and bf was at. It seems to be the same area where the cops were called on them. Oh shit.

The Petito stuff and the Murdaugh family stuff combined has made all the true crime heads too riled up. It's a powder keg!

If you haven't checked out Mike Tyson Mysteries on AS, you should give it a try. Norm MacDonald as Pigeon is aces.

NSFW and definitely not PC. You've been warned.

Anyone got links to a breakdown of what is going on with this? I've not heard anything about it on this side of the world.

Decided one indoor theater show would be okay with everyone fully vaccinated and masked + me wearing my P100 mask and my new almost airtight unvented goggles (besides, it was about Mallarme's Un coup de dťs jamais n'abolira le hasard (A [shot/throw] of dice never will abolish chance(/hazard))). But to get them almost airtight I had to tighten them so much it eventually felt the back of my skull was being crushed in... bit distracting. Didn't stay for the talk-back for once.

Performer was giving the poem the modern mediocre Shakespearean treatment---fast, the words smoothed out so it often sounded like he didn't know what he was saying, lineation generally not just ignored but purposefully avoided (as if that actually made it sound more naturalistic---usually it doesn't) except when doing 'very dramatic' single words (though for this poem that's justified by the lineation---the experimental visual layout of the page and its blank spaces). With a little modern-Shakespearean-actor musicality (not quite like Gielgud, maybe a little later than him) which really works better in RP (... and almost certainly has minimal relation to the exact musicality of Elizabethan practice---for one because the Elizabethans almost certainly relied more on declamatory metrical rhythm, 'trippingly on the tongue' with accented and unaccented syllables, not flowing like an undifferentiated stream---when a later actor started completely ignoring the line breaks in the name of naturalism it was viewed as a major innovation, and the 20th century exacerbated this tendency when clearly 'rhythmical' and/or ringingly rhyming poetry came to be viewed as the province of nursery rhymes, doggerel, and the uneducated masses).

No recordings of Mallarme but his reciting style probably sounded more like this:



Or maybe:



Catering to the audience I'd suppose. Also added a dance number.

Afterwards was looking at some art by the river and a gaggle of girls asked me to take some photos of them on one of their phones. Perhaps I should have said "no you fools, can't you see I don't want to get sick? and IDK where the nearest publicly accessible soap or hand sanitizer dispenser is" but no, I went ahead and did it.)

I always find it a bit sad when I see a sign tacked at a street corner advertising an estate sale like it is a weekend garage sale (even though I have no emotional investment and the deceased is a complete stranger). There's something ghoulish about opening up a residence and allowing people to look through and purchase items of the dearly departed. I guess it's a necessary discomfort though, to unburden family and friends of someone's belongings. I've never been to an estate sale. I thought about going to this one. Have any of you guys ever been? What are they like?
