Crow gets kicks on Route 66

66 is a mighty fine number!

Six-Six has all kinds of cool auspiciousness surrounding it:

  • It's got hella symmetry.
  • It looks like the opening of a clever quote.
  • It works equally well upside down and reflected too.
  • It's like having twins.
  • Two 6's are Boxcars – the best outcome for a crapshoot.
  • Add another 6 and you get triple-trouble + evoke a badass dude.
  • It's a German card game.
  • It's a film directed by Paul Weiland.
  • It's a novel by Barry Levinson.
  • It's a main-belt asteroid.
  • It's a song by Lil Yachty, and a different one - with the same name - by Felo Le Tee + Myztro and others like the Afghan Whigs.
  • And, it's a song from another time, about a famous road...

Route 66 - The Mother Road.

There's a cool illustrated Google Doodle about it:

Route 66 – Goole Doodle Video by Matthew Cruickshank.

It's a song with history, composed by Bobby Troup, first sung in 1946 by Nat King Cole in 1946 and by Chuck Berry, The Rolling Stones, and by yadda yadda – the list is long.


... is also how long I've been on the Planet.
66 turns around the sun – what a trip!
(I'm getting dizzy).

Here's a much-used (yet still fresh) cake drawing.

As always, thanks for reading and indulging!
