The Geeks and Me

After I got back from Bangor last Wednesday, I spent 45 minutes on Skype with the four hosts of the Geek Cast Live podcast. The podcast is now available online. My part starts about 20 minutes in and runs through the end. I had a great time talking with them!

Also available as of a couple of hours ago: my preview of Mr. Mercedes, the TV adaptation of King’s Edgar-Award winning crime novel, which premieres on Audience Network tonight. I haven’t yet heard where people who don’t have U-Verse or DirecTV will be able to see it. Stay tuned: it’s probably the best TV adaptation of King to date. I’ve seen the first four and can’t wait for the rest.

We watched The Zookeeper’s Wife this weekend, and then followed it up the next evening with Fiddler on the Roof. I first saw the latter in 1979-80 when I was living in Halifax. Saw it at the Barrington Street cinema with some high school friends. I’d forgotten how long it was (just over 3 hours), and there’s a song that I’ve always associated with it that I now discover is not in it at all—it’s in Oliver, which I don’t think I’ve ever seen. But I must have, else how would that song be so strongly imprinted on my mind?

Trying to find time to get back to Ozark, which I’m halfway through.
