Curve Your Enthusiasm

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge has us going in CIRCLES and around CURVES this week. I don’t know about you, but I really like her shot of the old-fashioned barber shop pole. Which reminds me, I’m due for a trim.

SeinfeldAmong the many things that I’ve revealed in this blog since joining the b-sphere last summer is that I’m a HUGE fan of the long-running American TV sitcom Seinfeld. Jerry and his creative cohort, Larry David, made Thursday nights in the U-S-of-A during the 90s “must-see” TV on the Peacock Network.

Since the multiple Emmy Award-winning Seinfeld headed “up the river” for good — but, it’s still on the tube somewhere in Rerunville — Larry David took a short respite, then came back with a hit show of his own on HBO, Curb Your Enthusiasm. It ran for eight seasons, and there are rumors floating around that he’ll return for number-9. We can only hope.

Larry DavidIf LD were to make a comment about Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week, he’d probably lean in to Richard Lewis and have the following observational exchange:

David: “Hey, let me ask you something. Isn’t a CIRCLE just one continuous CURVE, and a CURVE circular by nature? I can’t tell the difference. Can you?”

Lewis: “You know, it never dawned on me.”

David: “Look. There’s something round about both of them. How can you tell them apart? This Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is driving me nuts! I’ll bet Ted Danson would know.”

david and lewisLewis: Geez, Larry. Let it go.

David: No, I’m gonna call Danson and get to the bottom of this CIRCLES-and-CURVES thing, then I’m gonna send this Cee gal a hula hoop.

Lewis: Now that’s a CIRCLE..

David: (Raising his voice) And it’s CURVED, too!

Lewis: Do you sleep at night?

David: “Pretty, pretty, pretty…pretty good.”

Lewis: “Just watch the video, Larry.”

Tom swapped his hometown St. Louis Cardinals' baseball cap in the United States for a Borsalino and he now hangs his "cappello" in the Puglia region of southeastern Italy. A veteran print and broadcast journalist, with well-worn passports that have got him into and out of 50 countries and counting, Tom fell in love with the "Bel Paese" years ago. As he notes, "I'm inspired by the beauty I find in all things that are very, very old, and reliving history, or at least meandering along the travertine and cobblestone that were laid down over a thousand years ago and just looking up and marveling at what occupies the space still today, really gets my 'Vespa' running." Tom has a good eye behind the lens and is a graphic storyteller, but he'll let you decide as he keeps his camera batteries fully charged and the posts flowing from his creative hideaway in the hills overlooking Ostuni. You can also follow his dispatches via and Anthology Magazine Ireland.


  1. Well I too loved Seinfeld AND Larry David’s show. We’ve written many an episode here on Kiawah among my friends 🙂 And your video was wonderful. Great job!
