I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Rocketman and other stuff

Okay, so what can I say, it's Monday and I slept in...  and they is half over... okay, it's not half over, it got my ass out of bed around 0715. When you normally get up between 0430 and 0500 that's late.
I saw "Rocketman" last night.  It is very, very good and far more dramatic than I was expecting.  Even though Taron Egerton looks nothing like Elton John, it takes about 4 seconds after he makes his grand entrance at the beginning of the film to convince you otherwise.  One of the things I find amusing is the brouhaha about the sex scene and how it might be cut in order for the movie to get a PG-13 rating.  The language alone guaranteed "Rocketman" was going to be rated R.  Elton likes to swear... a lot.  This is also not a 'linear' biography, the songs are not in sequence, rather, they are used to emphasize an emotional moment.  Oh, and in case you're wondering, Egerton can sing, his vocal chops work quite well with the music.  Isn't it nice to go see a movie about a legendary rock star and the lead actor sings all of the songs.  One final note on this great film, I really did love that devil costume and how it was used.


Did the Idiot Jerk do anything yesterday?  It's rare for him not to fart out some stupid shit, even on a Sunday.
Tomorrow I have to go back to work.  Crap.  For 2 whole days.  I like this 2 days on, 2 days off schedule.  Once the car is paid for, this is what it's going to be like.
Finally, E3 started yesterday in LA.  That's when publishers announce upcoming games.  The biggest splash was made by the studio CD Projekt Red.  They gave us a release date yesterday for their next big game, Cyberpunk 2077... and the announcement was made by Keanu Reeves.  I can not wait.  A word of warning, there is language in this trailer.

  1. I envy your 2 days on 2 days off. That would be my ideal. Rocket Man is on my list. It was a story ripe for telling.

    1. I will have to work regular hours now and then until I go fully part-time, but that's doable.

      I don't think many realize that a rock stars life can involved a lot of shit.

  2. Loved Rocketman too! Yum Taron Everton, too. Totally agree with you review.
    And Cheeto was up yesterday using taxpayers’ money to go cheat in golf and lied his orange head off about Mexico. Business as usual.

  4. I really enjoyed the film also. And I think the actor who portrayed Elton John did a great job, and had a good voice too.

    1. I don't think many people realize how much he effected the music industry as a whole.
