Signs of the Times
I finished Survivor Season 40 finally, a little bit at a time throughout the work week. Jeff Probst broadcasted from his garage some of the transitions and his at-home mic sound was poor, so it was a strange final episode. Also I felt disappointed in other ways about the ending, but I don’t want to spoil it by talking details. Anyways I resubscribed to Discovery+ on Roku to get back into watching Samantha Brown’s Passport to Europe. I got a sneak preview with her short special on Munich and it feels like going without beer will be a little challenging, but there are some big art museums already priming my interest. In the news of recent deaths, two big ones. Guitarist and founding member of Lynyrd Skynyrd (“Free Bird” and “Sweet Home Alabama”), Gary Rossington. Also billionaire and founder of Love’s gas stations/travel stops, Tom Love. Bars and road trips everywhere I picture, mourning through jukeboxes and the gas pumps.
