The Graduate

I always find it a bit difficult to transition back to my usual snark and complaining after I post about something as sad and frightening as yesterday’s fire in San Bruno.

But, after “Bleecker Street” played over the closing credits of Mad Men earlier in the week, I’ve been on a bit of a Simon & Garfunkel jag. Amazing how beautiful these songs still sound over 40 years later…

Here’s the final scene from The Graduate. If you haven’t seen the movie, obv don’t watch this clip (though do find it on DVD and watch immediately). So much about this movie is sublime and the ending is no exception.

If you just want to get your Simon & Garfunkel on, here’s “Scarborough Fair”. Don your overcoat first to ward off the chills.

And remember, even if you live hundreds or thousands of miles from what happened in San Bruno, there is always an urgent need for blood in virtually every community. Give what you can.
