We’ve been re-watching Deadwood over the past few weeks, which has been excellent following going through the entire series of The Wire again through the winter. There’s an actor named Stephen Tobolowsky who appears in Deadwood who I’ve thoroughly enjoyed in a myriad of films over the years, from Spaceballs to Groundhog Day to Memento and many others. My wife, a far more reliable source of all things media, turned me on to the Tobolowsky Files (, a series of stories read by the actor. Here’s a link to one of the most recent, “The Time Machine Deconstructed” – many thanks to Stephen for telling these wonderful tales.
