Boy, I was in a good mood. I had good reason, my Father’s Day was splendid, very chill. Which was badly needed. Had a long conversation with my beloved kids—whom I have not seen since November—and they really made me proud with their passion and sense of purpose. We talked about everything for over 90 minutes. Best present ever.


My kids also sent me a book.


There was a midday live concert from Jean-Michel Jarre. All new material. Great stuff.

I’d splurged 2 bucks for a week of Evil Amazon Prime, enabling me to watch all of THE EXPANSE Season 4. It was good! I’d heard rumblings from fans that the season was something of a non-starter, that the big arc was moved only a bit further along. That may be so, but it was 10 high-octane, well-built episodes. The characters were cornered into brutal situations that would make my beloved teeny-bopper Doomtroopers shit their pants, frankly. 4 and a half stars!


And, SAD TRUMP. Yes, I watched The-Annihilator-in-Chief’s sad, narcissistic, at times bizarre speech to his meager followers in Tulsa on Saturday, and so we were all “delighted” to mock him alighting from Marine One after his disastrous rally. Clever kids gave the video all kinds of tunes. Let’s see if I can find a good one…

Ha ha ha, I missed this one. It’s the end credit music the of 1970s Incredible Hulk TV show. Real tearjerker.

And so on.

Be well, mein kinder.
