Fine in all ways. His remarks on Spacey and Weinstein followed on by post mortem of DJT beyond insightful. Neither here nor there, but just finished the Langella from long ago, similarly wise and temperate I thought. Langella re Monroe, Quinn and JFK made an interesting counterpoint.

Sonny, one of the joys to TBGTH is listening to you re-evaluate yourself--your former opinions, attitudes, even mannerisms--the deeper you get into the expert person you’re interviewing. This was true the last two weeks, interviewing elder statesmen geniuses. Quite fun!

I thoroughly enjoyed this . There was a lot here that we can use to explain our various friendships. what captured us about the person. what things make us resist another person. David Thomson is someone I could listen to forever. I have noticed people in my life trying out different gestures or expressions that I know they got from someone they must admire. It is a fun thing to observe in people. we all do it. Thankyou. Bring him back more often.

As someone who moved around a lot as a kid, I’ve found that even today I do a fair amount of mirroring—of accents, of mannerisms—as a way of trying to fit in.
