Why is my blog called Inhuman Swill? Because you can unscramble the pieces to make William Shunn.

The moon and the Sox

Well, the lunar eclipse has begun. We have a terrific view of it from the back yard, and we're stepping outside to check on its progress during every commercial in Game 4 of the World Series. More superstitious folks might call the eclipse a portent.

I can't believe it took Laura and me so long to get around to seeing Avenue Q. We went with her parents last night, and the show was delightful from the first strains of its Sesame Street-ish theme song to its puppeteers' final bows.

As a former Sesame Workshop employee, I first heard of Avenue Q before it originally opened off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theater. But did I go? No. Do I wish I had? Oh, yes.

In a raucous evening, it was interesting that the loudest cheers (save those at show's end) came during the song "For Now," when, as part of a recitation of things that would eventually pass, this line was sung: "George Bush is just for now."

Spankin' the Yankees

Holy cow, how about those precedent-setting Red Sox? I may be taking my life in my hands here, but I for one am thrilled to see the Yankees getting spanked like this.

I was out at a bar in the Village Monday night during Game 5. The game was on TVs all over the place, of course, and I didn't dare voice my real opinion. When I left, it was the bottom of the 11th. By the time I got home, it was the top of the 14th and the game was still going. I was delighted to get to see the end of that one. And since we turned in early last night, I was even more delighted to hear this morning that the Sox had one again. Tied series! Who would have guessed it three games ago? Not the Bronx Bombers, that's for sure.

This photo has already been seen in [info]curmudgeon's journal, but I loved it so much I had to steal it:
