*You know what I can’t remember seeing? A woman riding a motorcycle with a man riding behind her. I’ve seen it in the movies, usually when they want to establish how tough/dangerous a woman is, like in The Ninth Gate. Motorcycles may be the most gendered motor vehicle.
*The Ninth Gate is a terrible movie but for whatever reason it’s one of my favorites. I re-watched it a couple weeks ago. I realize as I get older I don’t really feel like investing the time in watching new movies (cause what if they suck?) so I watch movies I know I like. Unless there are giant robots or spaceships- then I will gamble with my time. As a result, I have seen few new movies since around 1999 and even fewer since 2010.
*I’m not watching the Olympics. I’m not a big sports fan and snow sports are especially foreign to me. I tried snowboarding a few times but I couldn’t handle the cold. I skied a few times too. I’ve never ice skated, rode a bobsled or curled. I’m from a desert where it snowed once in the last century. I might watch the summer Olympics.
*I might even be in Japan when the Tokyo Olympics are happening, but frankly I am surprised they were given the nod because Japan has no money and likely will feel compelled to blow a bunch of money on new stadia. Or maybe they can use the same ones as last time, if that’s not considered lame. One thing good I can say about Los Angeles is that they managed to put on maybe the only Olympic Games that actually turned a profit by using facilities they already had. Say what you like about LA- they know how to make $$$.
*Wordpress thinks stadia is a misspelling. This latin major disagrees. I knew that degree was good for something- it just gave me a cheap sense of accomplishment.
*My band has a show saturday night. My son and I were driving in the car listening to the radio when an ad came on- COMING SATURDAY FEBRUARY 15th to ____ (can’t remember) ARENA… WORLD WRESTLING ENTERTAINMENT FEATURING…” We were both going “YES! PRO-WRESTLING OHHHHHH!” Then I remembered I have a show. Damn, WWE is in town and I am going to miss it.
