Between the two of us, fifty pictures
were taken at Angel Stadium on August 5, 2017.

My two favorite pictures are this one
and that one.

Both images emphasize
our party of three
and de-emphasize
the action on the field.

So be it.

From An Essay About Scott Fitzgerald

________________________________________________________________________________________________

The best writing never makes the reader feel
like they’re reading. It gives them an experience,
transports them, black ink on white parchment
acting as teleporter to new realms,
feelings, emotions, truths.

Paging F. Scott Fitzgerald:
Please Rescue Modern Fiction

About That Wallpaper in Woody Allen's Stardust Memories

________________________________________________________________________________________________




This is a scene from
Woody Allen's film
Stardust Memories
(1980)








That is a partial list 
of the cast from
HEAD 

The surrealistic and psychedelic 1968 film about the  Monkees 
was co-written
by Jack Nicholson.

Because HEAD features
actual footage of that 
shocking image from 
VietNam, the names of 
both executioner and 
the executed are listed.


Both HEAD and Stardust Memories, however, qualify as comedies.

One More From The NEZ ... With Chopsticks And A Backbeat

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Chow mein and bowling
Twinkies and champagne
Moon over McDonald’s
Frozen pizza in the rain
In the rain

Dancing in the dump truck
Dining with the dog
Laughing in the bathtub
With a ducky and a frog

Stake me to an anthill
Shoot me to the moon
Without you I am no one


Like a burger with no bun
I can’t go on

A Quote From A Former Monkee

A puzzle stops being a puzle

You do not have to be a baseball maniac
to appreciate this list from
BASEBALL ALMANAC

For example, if the term
Father and Son
means anything to you,
see the names ranked 
#4  and  #258
a/k/a
Barry Bond and Bobby Bonds 

Consider the word
Godfather:
Bobby played 
on the same as
Willie Mays
who is the
Godfather of Barry
!!!

The title of this page
refers to a thingie called
 Benchmark   

as in 1000 of something:

In the entire history
of Major League Baseball,
Darryl Strawberry
is the only player
to have exactly
1000
Runs Batted In

In the entire history
of the planet,
there have been
approximately
16,000
Major League
Baseball Players

Only 282 of them
had more RiBbIes
than Darryl 
!!!
!!!

The 1000 RBI Club
is indeed an exclusive subset
when only 283 out of 16,000
people qualify for membership

 
283 out of
It is no coincidence that
an exclamation mark
looks like a baseball ball
standing on a baseball
!!!
!!!
Another benchmark:
1,000,000,000

That is approximately
how many memories
this list can inspire

And 4 is about how many
GoFather of Math pages
this list will inspire
