Former astronaut Clay Anderson compares NASA’s two new spaceships."It’s when you get down to the quote unquote ‘creature comforts’, those are the things that will stand out to me."Cup holders?

"One Toke Over the Line" on The Lawrence Welk Show, 1971. 

I am not making this up. 

My opinion: He’s clueless as he appears. She knows exactly what she’s singing about. And she’s baked while she’s singing.

The hell of it is, it’s catchy.

Trailer for a documentary about the life of Batman star Adam West.He was at the top of Hollywood in the late 60s. Then his career hit a wall in 1970.Two theories: He has a fantastic voice, but I’ve never seen him turn in a good performance as an actor. Everywhere I’ve seen him, he’s been wooden. That was the shtick in Batman, and it worked, but most acting roles require, y’know, acting. On the other hand, I don’t remember seeing him in anything other than Batman, and a few stunt-cast roles where he played himself. Also, was he a pain in the ass to work with? Producers will put up with a pain in the ass who’s in-demand star, but they’ll cut him lose in a red-hot minute when he stops making money. Whereas stars who behave professionally can often continue getting work when their star fades (something I have tried to keep in mind during the ups in my own career).

Crappy video of Minnie running joyously around the backyard. I haven’t been able to get a good video, so this will have to do. It does not begin to capture her happiness. This is her favorite thing on the world. That’s me at the end, saying, "Gogogogogo!" which often gets her going.

This is me every day when I travel on business, except 6 instead of 8:45, and on alternate days it’s 5:30 and I’m welp I only went to bed four hours ago but I guess I’m up now.

YouTube is popular among customers of Hungarian cable providers, where the YouTube app doesn’t hurt other content offerings but instead mixes into a goulash of services. 

(Took me a minute to come up with a Hungary pun — but I did it!)
