My seemingly lovely and fun online self is currently so different from the real Paul ****** I think I’m gonna take a little tumblr break and give my brain a shake. Toodles.

If there is a huge fandom around “American Horror Story”, I can expect a similar one for Steven Soderbergh’s “The Knick”.   I’ve been blown away by the meticulous attention to period detail and the no-holds-barred scripts that show unflinchingly the racism, sexism, classicism, and corruption of the times,  Clive Owen is of course, a god among men and you leave each episode grateful for entering this world late in the 20th century.  Fans of steampunk will marvel at the subtle attempts to weave gadgetry into modern medical equipment, although scenes in the operating theatre may move some to the nearest bathroom.  Not to be missed.

Weird Sarah, I was just having this conversation at the breakfast table.  Sometimes you have to ingest the propaganda from all sides, digest what is relevant, and spit out the rest to formulate an opinion.

"Autumn In New York"-Vernon Duke

Autumn in New York
Why does it seem so inviting?
Autumn in New York
It spells the thrill of first-knighting

Glittering crowds and shimmering clouds
In canyons of steel
They’re making me feel
I’m home

It’s autumn in New York
That brings the promise of new love
Autumn in New York
Is often mingled with pain

Dreamers with empty hands
May sigh for exotic lands
It’s autumn in New York
It’s good to live it again

Lovers that bless the dark
On benches in Central Park
It’s autumn in New York
It’s good to live it again
