Family over time. [Jun. 10th, 2013|11:06 am]
Rosencrantz319
We had a small family reunion at Fort Snelling Park last Sunday. It would have been nicer if it hadn't rained.

I visited with my cousin the Father, my cousin the Sister, their father (my uncle), and their mom (my aunt).
People I hadn't seen in a while.

The young kids I remember at holiday dinners now have kids of their own.
I've gone from the children’s table to possibly hosting someday.

Tomorrow when I wake or think I do, what will I say of today. [Jun. 4th, 2013|12:31 pm]

Late last year a family member succumbed to mental illness. A month ago I found out a friend, who is the last person I would think would end up in prison is going to prison(no I won't talk about it).

Although I never claimed to have any idea what the hell is going on lately it seems to have been reinforced by these things.

Along similar lines I made a butternut squash lasagna last weekend and when I brought a piece to Mom I had to explain what a lasagna was. She has made them when we were young. Conversations with her are coming with more and more explanations.

It feels like the world is falling apart and there isn't anything I can do about it.

If I believed in astrology I would have to ask what the planetary positions are right now. It's that weird.

Mom went into the ER last Friday because of extreme nausea. I won't go into details but the word blockage was used. It's been two days of wait and see.

I went on a domestic bender today.

I slow roasted some Turkey legs for the Saturday gaming group. They turned out really well.

There is a hopeless incompetence that goes with getting stuck in the snow that really upsets me.

There seems to be an unpleasant long term trend with comedy that kind of bothers me.
During the golden age of comedy the jokes were funny stories with a punch line. "A nun, a Scottsman, and a bear walk into a bar...."

When I used to do bad stand up in the late eighties and the early nineties it seem to shift towards observation humor. A lot of it was kind of angry.
Sam Kenison screamed a lot. George Carlin's act took a dark angry turn. The "I've noticed something that pisses me off" sort of humor.

I've been listening to some of the contemporary performers and comedy has gone vulger and gross, stuff I really can't repeat here. It seem like the point is to gross out the audience. If you're familiar with the Aristocrats joke then you understand what I'm talking about. Jokes that compete with the worlds dirtiest joke.

I don't like comedy that makes me dislike comedy. I honestly don't know where it can go from here.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbS2WJdav6c For some reason my phone doesn't post links. I've been making post about the discovery of the remains for King Richard the third. There was another post about where are they going to bury him. There has to be a great documentary about this later.
