RIP Who's Next?

Two luminaries across the arts are gone today. I'm worry about who the famous third will be.

RIP Ingmar Bergman




I haven't had much viewing experience of Berman films -- The Seventh Seal and Fannie & Alexander (both film class-related and probably the only reason I would have seen them in the first place). Sweden still has IKEA going for it.

At least Woody Allen::Ingmar Bergman > Jimmy Kimmel::Tom Snyder.

RIP Tom Snyder



Our generation gets Jimmy Kimmel. Great.

Go Go Garnett

So it looks like Kevin Garnett might call Boston home in the next few days. I think the gut reaction around here is "No! Save Al Jefferson!", but I think there's a lot more to this deal, especially if KG signs an extension.

I guess the big comparison is how Al Jefferson would have developed over the next five years vs. how Kevin Garnett will perform over the next five years. Jefferson may be a better athlete than Garnett in 2012, but he could also break his hand next year. Always buy on fact and sell on potential.

There are just too many unknowns with Al Jefferson to make it worth keeping him if the Celtics can have Kevin Garnett in his place: last year was only his second season and he missed 12 games. Garnet has missed 12 games -- in the last five seasons, plus he's had essentially the same game averages of 22/12/4.5 for the last 10 years.

The more I think about it, the more I like it. I'll be sad to see Al go, but if the Celtics can lock up Kevin Garnett for 5-6 more years, I say, why not?

Wet, Wild Weekend

Futurewife and I spent the weekend at the Great Escape Lodge this weekend for my cousin's wedding. It was an awesome time and I wish him and his new wife good luck and a fun time in Fiji.

The best thing about the Great Escape Lodge, besides being in the scenic Adirondacks, is the fact that located within the hotel is a water park. Nothing like a bridal party going boogey-boarding on a wave machine before the big day.

The wedding was very nice and the reception was held at the bride's family's lake house. The real fun start at the afterparty in the hotel bad, then the after-after party in the bridal suite, then the walk to an off-property bar for the after-after-after party (which turned into a giant circle when we decided to move that particular nth of a party back to another hotel room). It felt kind of like part one of this:



All in all, a fun weekend to get away.

Thanks. I'm buddies with his son and nephew, so I'm lucky enough to get the invite every year he has a party. He spends most of the time hanging out with his buddies near a giant, outdoor brick oven, making pizza as if he were a Greek God creating ambrosia.

He went on to start up Naked Fish, Red Sauce and a few others, post-Bertucci's, but now he's down to just Naked Fish.
