  1. Going to the 1st day of the US Open Quals in an hour or so. I just looked at the drawer sheet. At 11am, on adjacent courts, which can both be viewed by standing in between, are matches featuring Felix A-A (court 4) & Denis Shapovalov (court 5). I know where I'll be heading.
  2. This is one of the most interesting movies I've ever seen: The black-and-white part interleaves with the color part. The black-and-white part moves forward in time. The color part moves backwards in time (within each segment it moves forwards, but overall, it moves backwards). They converge in the middle. It's a good story, worth watching.
  3. The date besides Félix Auger-Alissime's name isn't the year he went on tour; it's his birth year. At age 16: * He's the youngest player in the World Top 800 (currently ranked #749) * He's the youngest player ever to qualify for, and win a main draw match, on the ATP Challenger Tour (the Challenger Tour is just one step below the full-fledged ATP World Tour - sort of like AAA Baseball). * He won the Sopra Steria de Lyon in June, making him the 7th-youngest player ever to win a Challenger tournament. * He has won both the U.S. Open Junior Singles and Doubles titles. Auger-Alissime is someone to look out for in future years - here's a highlight film of his Sopra Steria de Lyon victory. Notice the way he can play side-to-side, but also that he's not the least bit afraid to come to net: This represents the next generation of great tennis players (with Federer, and to a lesser degree, Sampras, already having paved the way). This will place more emphasis (slightly more) on speed and quickness than sheer endurance, and will probably make players like McEnroe and Sampras very happy. I don't think he's going to be able to get away with drop shotting this much as his competition gets better-and-better: You don't beat a great player hitting short.
  4. I am currently in love with this death metal band - The Ocean. This album in particular - Pelagial. They have released it both as a full instrumental piece as well as with lyrics. So those of you who hate the angry cookie monster voice have a way to still take a listen without having your ears bleed....too much. Enjoy! Pelagial!
  5. WETA, as I'm writing this, is airing a live performance by the Metropolitan Opera of "L'Amour de Loin" - a two-hour, five-continuous-act opera by Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho, with the libretto by the Lebanese-French author Amin Maalouf.
  6. 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 Million Record for Living Artist" by Katya Kazakina and Phillip Boroff on bloomberg.com "The Most Expensive Art Ever Sold at Auction: Christie's Record-Breaking Sale" by Kathryn Tully on forbes.com
  7. I was lucky enough a few years ago to be invited twice to teach a graduate course in Lisbon. From there it is a pleasant 3 hour ride on a swanky fast train to Porto. My ex and I acquired this bottle of 2000 vintage from the Ramos Pinto port cave in 2003. I drank the remaining half bottle with friends last night. Wow. A really nice port. I don't know how that vintage ranks, or how that particular port was ranked, but it was lovely. And it was fitting to share this treat with the friends who have been so supportive while I am recovering from the breakup. Life goes on, and it goes on happily with a good port.
  8. Speaking of a chanteuse accompanied by string bass (like Peggy Lee in "Fever"), here's Julie London in 1964 singing "Bye Bye Blackbird" (1926) in Japan, accompanied only by bass (played by Don Bagley). Pretty nifty, especially if you like slinky, breathy chantoozies who can carry a tune.
