Saturday night with Alfred Hitchcock

39steps

Get your popcorn and a comfy chair, then settle in for any — or all — of 15 films by Alfred Hitchcock.

Each and every one free, the way we like it.

Fair warning: never mind...

Two weeks from today, at this time...

... if all goes well, I'll be on Interstate 64 heading home to Charlottesville from Richmond, Virginia, after running the Richmond Half-Marathon.

I'm fired up and ready to rock 'n roll.

The race starts at 7:30 a.m. in downtown Richmond; here's my planned pre-race schedule:

4:30 a.m. — multiple alarms go off, including Screaming Meanie, all 120 decibels (sorry, Gray Cat)

5:15 a.m. — leave the house and get in the car and get on the road Interstate 64) for 75 miles due east

6:45 a.m. — arrive near race start in the dark, get confused about where to park, park

7:00 a.m. — walk to the race start (generally 1/2-3/4 of a mile)

7:15 a.m. — easy one-mile jog to warm up

7:30 a.m. — off I go!

SOC — Cartographic Objects Society

I went down a rabbit hole and came out here.

It's the home turf of architect Alexandre Arènas, about whom you will be hearing more in coming years.

Fair warning: there goes your view of the world.

Mirror Cup & Saucer

From the website:

Each Mirrored Cup is carefully hand-crafted from Hasami porcelain and coated in a thin coating of palladium, a precious metal rarer than platinum or gold.

This ensures a perfect reflection of the saucer, which is painted with a series of anamorphic designs.

The resulting effect is a striking cup and saucer set.

Features and Details:

• Made in Japan

• Cup: 3.6"Ø x 2.5"H 

• Saucer: 7.3"Ø x 1"H
