Toshiro Mifune and Richard Chamberlain in Shōgun. Finally going to start watching this. If you haven’t read the book, it’s pretty fantastic and I recommend it. I’ve heard good things about the show, so I’m excited to check it out. Having Mifune play Toranaga (a fictionalized version of Tokugawa Ieyasu) is definitely a good sign.
Yesterday I came upon two 83 year old Jerry Lee Lewis fans all decked out for his show at the London Palladium. I talked to them, they drove in from Surrey and have been going to his shows for many decades. Rockers!
Speaking of, Jerry Lee played a fantastic show last night which was his final show ever in England. The Palladium was sold out, mobs of people at every entrance waiting for Himself. Ringo Starr and Robert Plant were backstage… Really fun night.
