Currently, I am parallel reading Kerouak’s On the Road and Sinclair’s Oil!. Don’t know if there could be two more different books talking about the same existential crisis. That whole thing gets my brain going a bit, but I don’t exactly have time for it because I went down the rabbit hole over the environmental policy conflicts with the oil barons of California.
Environmental policy gets me geeked out something crazy anyway, but looking at the conservation presidency of Roosevelt and Pinchot in juxtaposition with President William Harding’s corporate interests. Like whoa. Yeah, super nerd-tacular.
At this point you are probably wondering why I am sharing my eccentric past times, since no one else really cares. Well….
Along the way, I stumbled onto an article about your Milkshake. Did you know that it is a movie mystery? No one knows where it came from and the dude who wrote it died with the secret. Even better, he dropped a bizarre comment in an interview years ago that no one can figure out. How cool is that?!
The trifecta of my geekdom: pop culture mysteries, environmental history, and current political climates.
