Welcome to the unintentional “Media Edition” of Inside The Perimeter.
I’ve come to learn that Brendan Fraser has won an Oscar for his performance in the movie “The Whale”. Had he not been a guest on some podcasts to which I listen I’d never known about the movie at all. The fact that I am now considering watching this film is problematic, for it will violate my rule created for Fraser, the “Never watch anything with Brandan Fraser” rule. This rule was created many years ago because I didn’t think Fraser was a good actor, and yet he was cast in nearly virtually everything. The rule was expanded to include Melissa McCarthy, who I don’t find the least bit funny, about a decade ago.
Last night I jumped back into the Ted Lasso bandwagon to ride it to its series finale this year.
Another bandwagon I hopped onto yesterday was something I just discovered yesterday, Alan Alda’s podcast “Clear+Vivid”. Apparently Alda has been doing this podcast since 2018, so I have clearly not done a good job keeping tabs on one of my favorite actors. With over two hundred episodes in the can I have a lot of catching up to do.
