Re: It's not the size of the screen...

Me too, though I'd like to have more confidence, not unlike with Better Call Saul, that there's a Perry Mason downstream with a law degree and we don't have to wait five seasons for it. Otherwise, I'm calling BS bait and switch. I think it's specifically supposed to be pre-law school Mason. As I un...

When I mentioned this to Jeff, he suggested we also have another word to describe a second memory category: you remember the theme song, at least one character, the overall premise AND a couple of isolated jokes or scenes ... but little else, and no full episode plots.

Re: tio's neato nature thread

There's something about the posture and movements of the cardinals that makes it very clear that they are looking at me. Though it's absurd athropomorphization, I sometimes feel like they're curious about the primate on the other side of the glass. https://www.complicitclergy.com/wp-content/uploads...

Re: Mondegreens

I just realized I've been hearing precisely one multiply-repeated word of Seal's "Kiss from a Rose" wrong for the last twenty-six years. I thought it was "grave", not "gray". Which made sense to me. Likening someone to "a kiss from a rose on the grave" conveyed the ambivalence that keeps cropping u...

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

I don't get the eyelash in the eye thing hardly at all -- maybe three times per decade? But I'm also really tall, so much of my life is spent looking more or less downward, because that's where pretty much everything that isn't me is. So I'd assume that lost eyelashes fall harmlessly to the floor (o...

Never give away anything for free on Craigslist. Charge five bucks or something. Offering free stuff brings the nutters in a way that charging anything at all does not.

I think "the desire to engage in sexual activity with the sort of person who'd engage in sexual activity in exchange for an Arby's gift card" is a particularly niche fetish.

And a disturbing one.
