Douglas Bruster VS Buster Douglas

Thirty years ago Buster Douglas beat Mike Tyson.
Three minutes ago, I was reading the Times online and I found a column about 10 new songs one of which was a Vietnamese parody about beating coronavirus, “rub rub rub” in the context of hygiene or washing see also “rub a dub dub, three men in a tub” for instance and I posted — there are 6M views on Youtube and 9,000 comments “ay, there’s the rub” and that led me to this post. Bruster, Douglas teaches at UT Austin where they may or may not be doing SXSW this year.
I have the Mother Hips at the Mitch with a call in 3 hours.
I think music has a healing power.
I likes me a Bevington… To be, or not to be, that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles, And by opposing end them: to die, to sleep; No more; and by a sleep, to say we end The heart-ache, and the thousand natural shocks That Flesh is heir to? ‘Tis a consummation Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep, perchance to Dream; aye, there’s the rub, For in that sleep of death, what dreams may come, When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause. There’s the respect That makes Calamity of so long life: For who would bear the Whips and Scorns of time, The Oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s Contumely, The pangs of dispised Love, the Law’s delay, The insolence of Office, and the spurns That patient merit of the unworthy takes, When he himself might his Quietus make With a bare Bodkin? Who would Fardels bear, [F: these Fardels] To grunt and sweat under a weary life, But that the dread of something after death, The undiscovered country, from whose bourn No traveller returns, puzzles the will, And makes us rather bear those ills we have, Than fly to others that we know not of. Thus conscience does make cowards of us all, And thus the native hue of Resolution Is sicklied o’er, with the pale cast of Thought, And enterprises of great pitch and moment, [F: pith] With this regard their Currents turn awry, [F: away] And lose the name of Action. Soft you now, The fair Ophelia? Nymph, in thy Orisons Be all my sins remember’d. and1: the opening act is ms lee and mr tuttle: oh, that this too Sully flesh would melt! I, 2 Act I Scene 2
