For the Picture Of The Day, here’s the 2020 edition of TCM’s annual montage of actors, filmmakers, and other movie folks who died this year.

Five Random Thoughts

Quickies about an Alexa-ready microwave, diapers for flight attendants, the return of “Night Court,” another agency breached in the recent cyber attack, and more.

POTD: Are You A Robot?

This Picture Of The Day is for all those times you’ve been forced to prove to a robot that you’re not a robot just to access your own information.

The Final Race

Some thoughts after watching what was likely the final episode ever of “The Amazing Race,” a show my wife and I have loved since it debuted 32 seasons ago.

Vaccination Nation

Some thoughts on the rollout of the first vaccines to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, how to get Americans to take the shot, and why the most important word is patience.

POTD: Ann Reinking

Upon hearing of the death of Broadway legend Ann Reinking at 71, I thought of this wonderful scene in Bob Fosse’s movie “All That Jazz,” in which Reinking and Erzsébet Földi dance for Roy Scheider.

Six NFL Thoughts

Here are a half-dozen quick thoughts that occurred to me while spending yet another Sunday afternoon watching the National Football League.

Movie Review: “I’m Your Woman”

My review of a new movie about a wife forced to go on the run with an infant because of something her husband was involved in, starring Rachel Brosnahan (“Mrs. Maisel”) and the most photogenic babies I’ve seen on screen in a very long time.

You Were All On The Same Ballot

I have a few questions about the latest Trump-backed lawsuit to overturn the election, which has gotten support from almost half the GOP members of Congress, but which is almost certainly doomed to fail at the Supreme Court.

Random Thoughts

Quickies on Bob Dylan, the newest Olympic sport, radio promoting local businesses, a welcome renewal for a TV show I’ve enjoyed, and my podcast dilemma.

Tuesday Night Football

Now that I’ve had a taste of Tuesday night NFL games, I want more, so here’s how the league should make that happen.

Tired Of Winning Yet?

A few thoughts about yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling against Trump, which seems like the 1,000th time his legal geniuses have lost in court, who in aggregate remind me of a Monty Python character.

Movie Review: “Mank”

My review of “Mank,” a new movie starring Gary Oldman as Herman Mankiewicz, the screenwriter of Orson Welles’ classic “Citizen Kane” (now streaming on Netflix). Spoiler Alert: this won’t be on my Best Movies Of 2020 list.
