A QUOTE, IF I MAY:
Have you ever heard of anyone who drank while he worked? You're thinking of Faulkner. He does sometimes -- and I can tell right in the middle of a page when he's had his first one.
- Ernest Hemingway
I mentioned it earlier in the week, but Mississippians are quite proud to claim William Faulkner. No matter that the lion's share couldn't name a title of any of his work - let alone be expected to actually read. This is kind of how many Texans are with Lonesome Dove. Anyway, my good palski Doctor Norris Camacho has a strong command over the English language and totally gets the rhythm and cadence of southern/western literary legends. Yesterday he released his latest installment of Faulkner-inspired work, Penalty Flags in the Dust. It is a delight.
SPEAKING OF DOCTOR CAMACH'. He went on Red Cup Rebellion's podcast to talk ball and the upcoming game. A true gentleman - with taeks!
A QUEST THAT ISN'T SCI-FI? HELL YEAH. I'm an adult with a healthy relationship with my father, so no, I didn't get excited with the Back to the Star Wars Future kerfuffle. I'm evolved, you see, in that I get all wound up and invested in a game played by 18 year olds. TOTALLY different. There is a QUEST for the playoff right now - and A&M is alive. Our man whoopy examines. There are still references to a nerdy film series. Trilogies and -ogies in general - the worst.
PULSE: ELEVATED. Another episode of The Pulse was released last night. BEWARE: PTSD is likely from sixes picked. I'll tell you where I got HOPE and got JACKED though, gang:
- Chavis addressing the defense before last week's game
- Sumlin addressing the team right after a miserable loss
