Robert Hunter VS Robert Mitchum
Robert Hunter was a lyricist for The Grateful Dead, who, ironically*, died today.
Robert Mitchum was an actor who played in a frightening movie, “The Night of The Hunter” and used to whistle this one song, to the dismay of the children he was, literally, stalking.
*There’s not much ironic about Hunter’s passing. Even artists who live mythic lives are at the end of the day, or 30,000 days, mortal. Their art could be immortal. It survives them. I am using the term “ironic” ironically, as if I did not know what it means (and ironically, maybe I do not know what tim means).
