Two facts that I find terribly depressing: by Leslie Bohem

One: I recently read an interview with an aging rockstar who is putting out a new album, although really for the past 10 years he’s been much more famous for dating famous women than for his guitar playing or his song writing. In the interview he made a point of saying that he was no longer as promiscuous as he had been when he was on the other side of 40, and that now he was confining his dating to — and at this point he said the name of an app with which I was not familiar. The article then parenthetically described the app as a dating service for celebrities. Tinder for the famous.

Two:  As if that weren’t enough to drag my angels from the air, just now, while passing an upscale pet shop, I saw a treadmill called, “Jog a Dog.”  There was a cardboard cutout of a golden retriever on this “doggie pacer.”

Jesus wept.

Les Bohem has written a lot of movies and TV shows including the mini-series, Taken which he wrote and executive produced with Steven Spielberg. and for which he won an Emmy award.   He’s had songs recorded by Emmylou Harris, Randy Travis, Freddy Fender, Steve Gillette, Johnette Napolitano (of Concrete Blonde), and Alvin (of the Chipmunks).  He is currently producing his series, Shut Eye for Hulu.
