Evermore

I’ve never been to Evermore Park where you can apparently watch ax throwing.  And according to my top 2020 songs list compiled by Spotify, I listened to a lot of Taylor Swift last year.  Anyway, Evermore Park is hurling its trademark infringement ax at T-Swift over the name of her Evermore album.  I don’t think anyone is going to be confused.

Michael Jordan’s Emotional Damages

When I read this story about NBA legend Michael Jordan being awarded emotional damages for misuse of his name in China, I’m reminded of the emotional damage I’ve suffered because I foolishly traded off his 1986-87 Fleer rookie card.  Wish I could undo that trade from 30+ years ago.  I probably need therapy to help me sort through this.
