To the end of the beginning
Mad Men Season 5 – 1966 is coming to a close. Three episodes left.
What a wonderful, strange trip it’s been!
We’ve been treated to a homicidal fever dream, a self-esteem whippit emergency, a conference room honor beat-down, The Award Winning Banquet Table of Self-Doubt, a Tibetan elevator malfunction . . . and much more. It’s been a veritable Magical Mystery (Date) Tour so far, and I have nothing but high hopes for a strong finish.
Sadly though, my compadre Don walks out on Tomorrow Never Knows; he doesn’t quite get The Beatles yet.
But thankfully I do because they are taking over the city of Louisville starting today. It’s Abbey Road On The River for the next five days around here, an open air musicfest featuring scores of bands playing scores of variations of scores of Beatles songs all day/all weekend long. Score!
I picture myself in a boat on the river (well, near a boat at least), toasting in the Good Day Sunshine, surrendering to the void. It is not dying Don, go with flow.
If you’re in town, come down to the waterfront and say hello. Just shout out “Pizza House” and I’ll find you.
