Zeitgeist Miscellanea

Is that Dustin Hoffman clutching a copy of Spontaneous Mind - Selected Interviews 1956-1998? Why, we do believe it is. There is, of course, a back story.

And is that Allen and that loveable psycho-killer, Dexter (otherwise known as our good friend, the talented actor, Michael C Hall)? - also in the snapshot is Ben Schafer, Michael's friend (and, subsequently, Allen's editor at Da Capo) and Ben's father, Michael Schafer). Back in 1994 when Ben's mother took this shot, we don't think any of them could have imagined Dexter was in the future! (This was even prior the enormously-successful HBO hit, Six Feet Under).

And what of AG's recent emergence in "Zippy the Pinhead"? (twice!)
And then there's the hotel rooms and the seeds. Zeitgeist miscellanea.
