He went down to the sea.  He became a fish.  A cartoon fish.  The cartoon fish was good.

Spotted Don Knotts eating soup at the next table in Diamondhead HI in the earlyish 80s - I was a boy and he was a frail old man.  He looked soooo old.

Muriel Hemingway was waiting for her car at the valet same time as me in the early 90s in Brentwood- she looked like God sculpted a flawless woman from ice.  Ernest was not there.

I read once that on the Andy Griffith show although Andy Taylor was laid-back, calm, and level-headed and Barney Fife was nervous, high-strung, and panicky, in real life it was Don Knotts who tended to be calm and laid-back and Andy Griffith was often nervous and high-strung.

Don Knotts is responsible for the greatest public speaking scene ever committed to film.

May his memory live forever.

"Hills Like White Elephants" is disappointingly not about Suzanne Somers.

Okay then, Yin is a symbol of earth, femaleness, darkness, passivity, and absorption. It's present in even numbers, valleys and streams, and is represented by the tiger, the color orange, and a broken line. Yang is thought of as heaven, maleness, light, activity, and penetration. It's present in odd numbers, mountains, and is represented by the dragon, the color blue, and an unbroken line. They're said to come from the Great Ultimate (taiji), and their interplay with and upon one another (as one increases the other decreases) is a description of the universe and all that is in it. In harmony, the two are depicted as the light and dark halves of a circle. While it's depicted as a static, iconic image it's really meant to represent the constant dynamic dance of all reality.

The Ghost and Mr Chicken and The Incredible Mister Limpet are both great films...not great art, but a lot better than you expect them to be. The latter is especially, surprisingly, at the end of the film, quite poignant.

Don Knotts' talent was making his co-stars better.  He made good looking guys look better, he made brave guys look braver, calm guys seem calmer. A true talent that deserves respect

You're never going to get over Hemingway's classic short story "Alaric3 Drains Ape Balls In the Himalayas," are you?
