Macca's Route 66

I saw this PETA ad in some magazine recently.

Made me at least think about my carnivore ways.

I love this old piece on Paul McCartney and Jack Kirby.

Paul's still out there playing. Recently he did a benefit concert in Ukraine. One of the songs he sang in Ukraine, of course, was Back in the USSR. Here's an interesting cover:


One of my favorite Paul songs with his first group:


Paul turns 66 today. Happy birthday.

Willie Randolph was 86'd by the NY Mets. Yes, the team is better than the record, but I almost never favor in-season managerial replacements.

I was watching ABC News last night, and the segment they showed in observation of Cyd Charisse's passing happened to be this first piece I found on YouTube searching by her name, from about 50 seconds in, and running just over a minute. It also features some other dancer of note:

I remember seeing her well past her prime, probably on some awards program, and she STILL had great legs.

I can't believe I had never seen Cyd Charisse before. Always heard of her. Marcia and I were watching ABC as well, and I was mesmerized by the clip. Marcia started laughing at me when I said we should rent that movie.

Truth be told...I do not understand the attraction to Peta for people on the left. Peta is like the left wing version of a radical pro-life group-usually trying to change minds by grossing people out and condemning anyone who disagrees with them as evil murderers. I watched a documentary on HBO that seemed quite sympathetic to the founder of Peta, but it made it clear to me that people are not actually listening to her-as many middle of the road lefties seem completely oblivious to the absolute extremism that Peta supports.
