757 Episodes of the Classic TV Game Show What’s My Line?: Watch Eleanor Roosevelt, Louis Armstrong, Salvador Dali & More

What would the host and panelists of the classic primetime television game show What’s My Line? have made of The Masked Singer, a more recent offering in which panelists attempt to identify celebrity contestants who are concealed by elaborate head-to-toe costumes and electronically altered voiceovers. One expects such shenanigans might have struck them as a bit uncouth. Host John Charles Daly was willing to keep the ball up in the air by answering the panel’s initial questions for a Myst...

Bang, Zoom, Straight to the Moon...

...is what I was thinking while watching the Blue Origin launch on network TV this morning. The network color common-taters couldn't keep their pieholes shut and felt compelled to tell us what was going on. Never mind that I could see what was going on and they were talking over the mission control and capsule audio in the background. "Yes, Armstrong appears to be stepping off the ladder now and he's saying something. Craig?" "He's definitely talking, Tom. What would you be saying at a moment...

The Decision Not To Protect Vladimir Tarasenko

from Jwemy Rutherford of The Athletic, While the Blues’ protected list for the upcoming Seattle expansion draft won’t officially be revealed until Sunday, Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko is not on the list, according to multiple league sources.... The decision is disappointing to Tarasenko, but a source says it’s not the top reason Tarasenko is upset with the organization. Two months after the right winger asked the Blues for a trade, and 10 days after it was first reported by The At...

Hear Louis Armstrong’s Last Reel-to-Reel Tape, Made Hours Before His Death (1971)

When Louis Armstrong first recorded “Hello, Dolly!”, in 1963, he “found the song trite and lifeless,” says his biographer Laurence Bergreen, a surprising fact since it became one of his signature tunes. “Armstrong had transformed the song, infusing it with irrepressible spirit and swing,” Marc Silver writes at NPR. He did so all the way to the end of his life, playing “Hello, Dolly!” after accepting an award at the National Press Club in one of his final performances on January 29, 1971....

Fifty years ago

Louis Armstrong died fifty years ago today at his home in Queens. I have spent much of the last decade and a half thinking and writing about Armstrong—first in a biography, Pops, then in a play, Satchmo at the Waldorf—and I expect I’ve said by now what I have to say about his beautiful, blessed life and work. So instead of trying to find a new way to sum up my feelings, I’ll simply reprint a passage from the last chapter of Pops. I hope you enjoy it. *  *  * Armstrong’s own unpublished ...

The Boss Baby: Family Business Review – Perhaps More Than Enough Of A Mediocre Thing

There is much about the Boss Baby franchise that eludes me entirely, but that certainly doesn’t mean that the first film didn’t cash in enough to warrant more than one effort to entertain… whoever this entertains. I don’t even remember the theory behind the intelligent babies and their cabal, or if there is one, and The Boss Baby: Family Business doesn’t care. It jumps ahead to a time when Theodore Templeton (Alec Baldwin) and Tim Templeton (James Marsden) are adults, and Tim’s daughter is worki...

Former Zillow execs raise $70M seed round for Tomo, which wants to simplify the mortgage process

There are so many startups pledging to reinvent the mortgage process that it’s hard to keep up. But for anyone who has had to go through the process of applying for one, it’s clear that there’s plenty of room for improvement. The latest startup to raise venture money with the goal of making the process “smarter and faster” is one that was founded by a pair of executives that spent years at real estate giant Zillow. Tomo is very early stage — so early stage that it is only launching operat...

Actually, Mr. President, You CAN Own a Cannon

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- President Joe Biden has said on numerous occasions that a private individual couldn’t own a cannon at the time of the American Revolution. Is he correct? In short, no, he is not correct. (Shocker!) At the time of the Revolutionary War and in the following early years of the United States, there were no laws prohibiting the private ownership of cannons. Neither King George III nor President George Washington (or any other president, for that matter), issued any kind of...
