Mind Entaglements

When I’m lying in bed trying to get to sleep, or climbing a big hill on my bicycle, or taking a shower, I play little mental games, which I have dubbed “mind entanglements.” As human beings we live in time. In fact, not to get deep on you or anything, what is art … music, literature … but a way of dealing with time? I have a ton of these mind entanglements: list baseball players of the 1970s (Luis Tiant, Mark Fidrych, Harmon Killibrew), celebrities whose first and last names start with the same letter (Charlie Chaplin, George Gershwin, Marilyn Monroe). One of my recent ones is combining two famous people; the last name of person one is the first name of person two. For example:

Michael Jackson Pollack
Bob Hope Hicks
Dwight Howard Cosell
Lebron James Brown
Deborah Harry Houdini
Cole Porter Wagoner
Elton John F. Kennedy
Aretha Franklin D. Roosevelt
Bob Dylan Thomas
Elizabeth Warren G. Harding
Ray Charles Barkley
Pee Wee Herman Melville
Nina Simone de Beauvoir

Oh, and here’s one that combines three,

Danny Thomas Jefferson Davis

I won’t bore you with more, but my favorite that I’ve come up with:

Hans Christian Anderson Cooper
