this commercial made me sad

Posted: November 8th, 2017 | No Comments »
weirdly this quitting-smoking chantix commerical made me sad — just this sweet old gentleman baker named ryan who once loved smoking and now doesn’t smoke and SAYS he’s glad about it, but isn’t there an edge of melancholy to him? some resignation? just endlessly making cookies…with no meditative smoke breaks to get him through…

BRING IT

Dion. Librado Romero/The New York Times

found this tidbit on my phone from “A Wanderer, the Singer Dion Returns to the Bronx”:

More than a half-century after his first hit, he [Dion] thinks back to what his life was like as a child, when his grandfather Tony would wake him every morning to the rhythmic clack of a wooden spoon in a tin cup beating egg yolks, sugar and wine into a frothy yellow concoction known as zabaglione.

“That’s brain food,” Dion said. “That’s one of the reasons my brain is so highly developed. By the time I got to school I was like, ‘Trig? Bring it. Algebra? Bring it.’

totalizing

completely agree with wesley morris in “weinstein, hefner and the poor excuse that explains a lot”:

Mr. Hefner’s disdain for sexual limits fueled fantasies and shaped self-images. He was the Walt Disney of lust — and had his own set of seemingly innocuous iconic animal ears. You didn’t have to read Playboy, visit the mansion, wear pajamas or even be straight: The effects of its ideas about women on the American psyche were totalizing. Women were inferior to men because, for Playboy, they were scenery — pretty, passive, usually white, often blonde, there.
