And my oldest friend is one of the 500. She'd been with the company something like 20 years. What's happened to her is what makes me so anxious and angry these days. How the hell do you find a new career, at our age? How? My heart is a little broken too.

Yeah, that's a pretty scary position to be in.  I firmly blame the Top Three for the problems DreamWorks has had.  They've greenlighted a lot of bad projects and asked the animators and directors to make them fly.

Well, if you ask me, maybe it's time for a new competitor to enter the field.  And hire the PDI folks.

cool.

They aired a 1963 episode of Perry Mason that he was in last night. I missed the first half, because I didn't know it was coming on. It was interesting to see him in the role of a thuggish type character. It was unnatural for him to play the role of someone who was a bit dull and unsophisticated, and you could occasionally see him slip a little out of character, but most of it was excellent.

Honestly, watching McHale score bizarrely in the post was my favorite part of watching the Celtics, way back when.  Weird-ass twisting hop-off-on-foot from-under-the-basket triple-fake lay-ins with three guys trying to block him or strip the ball.  It often looked like he must have at least three arms.

I am not going to delve into the history of Motörhead now.  :ttth:

Last week, for some reason, I started reading about the history of Black Sabbath, who I basically quit caring about after Vol 4 or so, and was amazed at how much history there was after that point. I had no idea they went through so many changes. That led me to reading the history of Deep Purple, and same type thing. Motörhead can't be as complicated, right...?

 :hmm:

I saw Motorhead a couple months ago just before Lemmy had to cancel a few shows.  I'm seeing Black Sabbath in Feb 2016.  Motorhead always bring it.

They ended their career at Staples.

I could have called that back in 1983.

Somebody on Tumblr suggested rebooting 2016 without saving it first. Sounds like a good idea to me.

i can only hope

That all over the world, cancer researchers are right now putting down their coffee, wiping their tears with the sleeve of their lab coats (EH&S Note: don’t do this), setting their jaws firmly, and snarling “… you shall be avenged!”
