Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Robin Williams, who suffered from depression and alcoholism, supposedly stopped drinking for twenty years until he made a film in Alaska. He said, "I was in a small town where it's not the edge of the world, but you can see it from there, and then I thought: drinking. I just thought, hey, maybe drinking will help. Because I felt alone and afraid." (emphasis added.)
  • Maybe my favorite Robin Williams film is One Hour Photo.
  • I was never able to make it through The World According To Garp. Even to weird for me. 
  • Mork and Mindy was a spin-off from Happy Days where Williams was an alien who met Fonzie? I'm insane now. 
  • The radio interview of some spare Dallas Cowboy is an instant power down for me. 
  • I think the over/under for total wins for the Cowboys has moved to 7 1/2. I'm making an official sports prediction: Take the under. Write this down. I have had a Sports Genius Epiphany. 
  • Junior Miller of The Ticket has calculated that today, the second Tuesday of August, at 2:00 p.m., is the worst moment of the year. A beaten down month. A beaten down day. And a time which is right after lunch but long before you get to go home. He may be right. 
  • Wise County deputies will now switch from "58 .357 Sig pistols for 70 9 mm Glocks with GT Distributors". Someone translate that for me. 
  • The death of four people from one family from Argyle while on vacation is heart breaking. 
  • There would be nothing more entertaining than if the GOP nominee in the next presidential election were Rick Perry, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, or Rick Santorum. 
  • Illegal aliens will cost us? Hmmm. More cops, more teachers, more jobs? Let's take it to the other extreme. What if no one was here. An abandon wasteland with just you. Which situation do you want?
  • I just looked at the MLB standings and noticed the Rangers are 26 games out. That's astonishing. 
  • The Sixteen Year Old in The House finally got her driver's license. To see her drive away to go to band practice was incredibly unnerving. 
  • For the longest time I thought I was a technical wizard. As each year passes, I'm feeling like I'm being left behind. 
  • I think Messenger sports guy Richard Greene is really good. 
  • I saw one of the original Planet of The Apes movies as a kid in a theater in downtown Bridgeport. I have no idea which one it was. But the thought of Bridgeport having a movie theater downtown is now mind boggling and incredibly cool.
