Earlier today I thought of comedian/actor Art Metrano for no apparent reason. I was working on some stuff and reading about investment techniques.
It was totally random for me to be thinking about him (Sorry, Art) and nothing I’d watched in recent days/weeks/months featured him.
He just popped into my mind somehow. Didn’t know why, just kept thinking and eventually the strange tracks of my mind went elsewhere, maybe even towards what I was actually working on at the time.
And then tonight, he turned up in a small guest role on a rerun of WKRP I just watched.
It also featured Tom Dreesen, Tim Reid’s old stand-up partner. I’d watched a youtube vid of Dreesen telling a Sinatra story earlier today.
Some guys think about girls. Some psychics solve murder cases or hit the lottery.
I predict Art Metrano & Tom Dreesen rerun appearances.
This kind of crap happens to me all the time. It’s actually part of what inspired the Wagstaff detective books.
Should I set up a TV monitor on a street corner and put down a hat for contributions as I predict the next Burt Mustin appearance?
NO WAIT!!!! I’M HAVING A VISION!!!! IT’S OLAN SOULE!!!!
Or perhaps I should pitch myself to Marvel as their new star, the superhero with the most useless power ever?
Well, unless the Avengers want to know what’s good on TV tonight.
