The Apple-Google shift

It’s 11:38 a.m. and I’m barreling over the Manhattan Bridge on my Free Spirit bike, a relic from the ‘80s-era Sears sales floor that has held up like a gem over the past  quarter century (aside from the occasional popped tire). One earbud in, I hear the familiar sonar-style blip of an UberRUSH pickup notification and I halt to a stop. 

I have ten seconds to take the delivery job — a five-minute ride  away on Canal Street — and I click “Accept” just before the offer disappears.

These were not the words of a stage-trawling artiste appalled by the vulgarity of an ever-coarser cinema. They didn’t come from a pompous aesthete. They were delivered by someone else, someone unexpected.

“While Gilda was throwing up in our bedroom in Connecticut, I was writing a comedy in the room just below her,” he writes. “It sounds oxymoronic, but absurdity was a familiar guest now.”

These struggles were hard to read about. My wife and I went through the death by cancer of a family member not long ago, on my wife’s side. It was of the diagnosis-remission-recurrence variety, and required significant end of life care and vigils at the hospital. This reminded me of that.
