Week of . . . December 12, 1998
An incredible man . . . actor, singer, composer, pianist, activist . . . passed away this past weekend. I had to try to write something about Michael Zaslow, though I feel my words are inadequate. Check out the links on that page, too.
Every so often I've gotta share a favorite link from months past, before I started this weblog. This is a piece I love, written by Lora Grady for teevee.org. Maybe it's a bit of an explanation/apology for the many TV-related links I include here. Yeah, so maybe I relate to this:
Tuesday TV Alerts: Bill Gates on The Rosie O'Donnell Show, Greg Kinnear on The Late Show with David Letterman, Bob Dole on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. As always, I recommend TVGrid for TV listings/reminders.
BeetleMac: Of course.
My cats have finally learned some level of etiquette. But as it gets colder, they become friendlier. At least Inky no longer tries to sleep on my neck at night. He occasionally tries to share my pillow with me... with often humorous results.
Behind the scenes at The Onion. Not exactly a kind article (I deplore the bit that makes it sound as if being on antidepressants = crazy). But interesting to hear a bit about the folks behind one of my favorite websites/newspapers. Who knows if any of it is true anyway . . .
TV alert for Monday December 7th: Patrick Stewart and Jon Stewart on The Late Show with David Letterman. Both are grand guests, both get along well with Dave. Should be fun.
Chat alert for Monday night: Yaphet Kotto chats at 10pm EST/9pm CST. Who's gonna ask him about Esposito's big mouth? ;-)
Joyce Millman (of salon) reviews Martial Law:
What can I say? If I happen to be home on a Saturday night, I get a kick out of the show. It's Sammo Hung, for crying out loud, what's not to like? :-)
