What’s more is that he appears to initially slam his Challenger into the back of another car and that car in turn hit a minivan which then hit more people. Below is the drone video which shows all that.

Often times when I’m doing projects around the house I feel like an archaeologist. There were blue, recessed address numbers on my front porch columns at some point. The columns themselves sported a pale yellow.
In related news… When I’m doing physical work my mind goes off on its own and works through other things.
Example: do you know what you get when you’re “right” at all costs?
Peeps, here’s a pop ballad for your Sunday morning. The chorus is good. Shut up. It reminds me of 80s skate parties and those couple of years, like 10 and 11, where my world was getting bigger but before being cool was a thing.
I’m pretty sure somebody at my house had an Air Supply 8-track or two.
Anybody wanna start an Air Supply cover band? I get to be Dudley Moore. I seriously thought Moore was in the band at first and not that little Australian, Russell Hitchcock. They could be cousins!
Speaking of Dudley… If you need a Sunday movie you should watch 1981’s Arthur with Moore and Liza Minnelli. Had to have been on cable at least once a month when I was a kid.
Before becoming a full blown rebellious teenager I could relate to a character like Moore’s rather than to one played by maybe a Clint Eastwood. Arthur embraced his inner child, probably too much, and he had that whole social awkwardness, spiritual clumsiness. The “I don’t know how to do this so I’m gonna drink to power through.” The “I have to follow rules but I won’t like them.” I always identify with those kind of struggles.
As a kid somewhere I knew I was going to need serious help to make it through life alive and Moore’s character was some subconscious role model. I know there’s parts of him in me. Three cheers for cable TV. Yep, I have vivd memories of movie scenes, they’re as much of my childhood as anything else.
And in the movie Hobson had some of the best snark around. After researching I see that John Gielgud won Best Supporting Actor for his performance. Good. That scene where Arthur and Hobson are bonding in the hospital — I should’ve made a mental note then just how important people are and the few moments we have with them.
Anyways. Obviously I bond more with Arthur than I do Air Supply. 😉
