  1. Selected in the 2013 NBA draft with the #15 pick in the first round by the Milwaukee Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo is a name you may not yet know, but may be forced to learn to spell and pronounce sometime in the near future. Born in Greece to Nigerian immigrant parents, Antetokounmpo is more commonly known by his American nickname, an embarrassing term which speaks more about Americans than him (you can find it easily on the internet; I refuse to go along with it even though it's more laziness than malice). This is a very obscure statistic, and it's surely one that was made up to demonstr
  2. I wonder how many people know that the Big 12 Conference consists of only 10 schools. If you'd like to visit all ten by car, here's the shortest route (that I could think of): <--- This is a trip down I-35, with West Virginia University at the beginning, and Texas Tech at the end. Imagine being a WVU Mountaineer, and having to play road games in this conference.
  3. Belarus has been recognized as an independent country since 1991, and ratified their Constitution in 1994. Its capital and most populous city is Minsk. It's the home of 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature recipient, Svetlana Alexievich, who gained fame for writing in a journalistic style about the Chernobyl disaster with "Voices from Chernobyl." The most famous of all Belarusians is possibly Marc Chagall; not far behind is "The Sparrow from Minsk," Olga Korbut. Belarus is landlocked, and surrounded by five countries: The two "Ls" (Latvia and Lithuania) to the Northwest, and th
  4. Star Trek: The Next Generation Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard Jonathan Frakes as Commander William T. Riker Brent Spiner as Lieutenant-Commander Data LeVar Burton as Lieutenant-Commander Geordi La Forge Michael Dorn as Helmsman and Chief Security Officer Worf Gates McFadden as Chief Medical Officer Beverly Crusher Marina Sirtis as Counselor Deanna Troi Wil Wheaton as Ensign Wesley Crusher Denise Crosby as Security Chief Tasha Yar Diana Muldaur as Chief Medical Officer Katherine Pulaski Colm Meaney as Transporter Chief Miles O'Brien Whoopi Goldberg as Bartender Guinan Sea
  5. I'm currently watching the terrific NetFlix series, "Narcos," which details, as its main subject, the rise and fall of Pablo Escobar. Escobar merits his own thread in the History forum, but you can get a very good, mostly accurate (but not entirely accurate) history of him through "Narcos" - this is a wonderful series that people will enjoy watching, as well as learning a great deal about Escobar and the Medellí­n Cartel. I recommend it highly, and hope to see your comments both here and there. (Obviously, this thread in our History forum is factual, and is about Escobar as a historical fi
  6. I received an email from Twin Springs Farm confirming that the new crop of gold rush apples are now available at the market's they supply. I shop at the Columbia Pike market on Sunday mornings, but Twin Springs sells at many area markets. IMHO, gold rush is the best apple; it is juicy, tart and a bit sweet and can be kept for s long stretch. Good for eating and cooking but almost too good to waste if it were to be buried in a pie.
  7. I wasn't sure what to think about "Cobb" going into it: It was a box office flop, that was mildly acclaimed by critics, which is generally right up my alley; in this case, I think I knew *too* much about baseball to enjoy it as a "regular" film critic would - it was just not a good film. The film focuses on Ty Cobb's final year of life, during which a famous sportswriter (Al Stump) is writing a biography of him. After the film, I still don't know what to believe about Cobb: Was he *that* much of a hateful man, or was this overplayed? I don't know, but if this story was true, then Cobb was
  8. Okay, who was lucky enough to see the legendary Danny Gatton play live? His reputation is not just local - my Lyft driver in LA not only knew who he was, but put on a recording of Gatton playing after getting *very* excited that I mentioned his name. "Danny Gatton: World's Greatest Unknown Guitarist" by Phil Harrell on npr.org Tom Principato talks about Danny Gatton (I've seen Tom Principato play - he's no Danny Gatton, but I *love* his sound and stage presence). "The Humbler" is a documentary about Danny Gatton in the works. IndieGoGo page. "New Film Reveals Mastery,
  9. Wow, you will simply not believe who makes a cameo (via photograph) in the very first sketch of Season 1, Episode 1. (You have to watch at least up until "Slick Johnson" (less than ten minutes)).
  10. At nearly three hours in length, "Hoop Dreams" may seem like an arduous proposition, but it's going to be three of the fastest hours you've ever spent watching a film. I saw it on release in 1994, saw it a second time last night, and on both occasions, I was equally riveted. Steve James spent five years filming the lives of *** SPOILER ALERT *** William Gates and Arthur Agee, *** END SPOILER ALERT *** two promising 14-year-old basketball players from Chicago, and detailed the lives of these two amazing young men, their families, and their dreams of getting into the NBA. That's reall
  11. I wanted some comfort food last night, so I (re-)watched "Star Trek Generations." This movie has one of my personal-favorite openings of any movie I’ve ever seen (okay, okay, “Raiders of the Lost Ark” might be a tad better), but still: I’m surprised Captain Harriman didn’t offer Captain Kirk the helm when he gave the order to “Take us out” on the Enterprise B - it would have been touching, although the way Kirk is playing his role (at least initially), he’s being a bit aloof, and “touching” isn’t in keeping with his demeanor. Oh my goodness - when Kirk fou
  12. Rashaan Salaam had two *major* football achievements: 1) He won the Heisman Trophy in 1994 2) He was the youngest NFL player ever to rush for 1,000 yards in 1995 Tragically, Rashaan Salaam passed away today. May you have found peace, sir.
  13. It's going to be a great deal of fun tracking ongoing auction records for artworks as this website ages (clicking on the tag Auctions will always get you a fairly updated list of threads). "Balloon Dog (Orange)" by Jeff Koons sold for $58.4 Million at the Christie's Nov 12, 2013 auction, breaking the previous highest price for a Koons artwork of $33.7 Million, and also shattering the previous world record for "most money paid for an artwork by a living artist" of $37.1 Million for "Domplatz, Mailand" (1968) by Gerhard Richter, which sold in May of 2013. "Koons's Puppy Sets $58 Millio
  14. I'm not sure why some movies seem to be virtually unobtainable online, at any price; while others are only available for rent; and still others are available in various places for free. "The Shawshank Redemption" is one in the latter category - for whatever reason, it is available in high-definition on the internet, free-of-charge (if you Google it, you'll find it, but I was watching my version here). This is a film that I didn't love in the theaters (I was 33), but I enjoy a bit more now that I'm older - maybe it's the subject matter, or maybe it's because I can take my time watching it (I'
  15. Carmen McRae was a great jazz musician, not merely a singer. Here she sings "Round Midnight," the Thelonious Monk tune. Carmen was a life-long advocate for Monk's work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzX_4ncaNjs
