My weekend begins today. That sounds odd when you consider my workweek only started yesterday. Hours wise, this will be a lite week for me, only 20.4 hours spread out over 3 days, the longest being on Thursday when I'll be working almost a full 8 hours. This is fine.
For those who don't keep track, 1962 Americans died of Covid over the past 24 hours. You can guess who they were. More power to them and their freedom. I don't think they understand that freedom is a two way street: we no longer have to listen to them bitch and moan about how their freedom to mask, or not to mask, to get vaccinated, or not, is more important than curtailing the spread of Covid.
Last evening I watched "Journey to the Center of the Earth," the 1959 version. I remembered seeing it as a kid when 20th Century Fox re-released it (studios did that back then since were no streaming services and VHS players were in the distant future). I later read the novel and realized the movie had very little in common with Jules Verne's story, which had neither romance, nor Pat Boone running around wearing only a pair of shorts for over an hour. Two things I decided after last night's viewing: Pat Boone was extremely well tanned when he made the movie, and he was not nearly as attractive I originally thought.
Take your freedom ...to die. I don't feel sorry for you if you refuse to listen to science but instead listen to con men, GOP goose-steppers and Fox News asshats. Die.ReplyDelete
Lauren Boebert can fuck all the way off.
I've been told you can smell her desperation.Delete
I've never read any Jules Verne (so much to read, so little time to do it) but that film looks pretty good to me (even if James Mason was also incredibly tanned too)!ReplyDelete
I've ready many of his books, all time favorite being The Mysterious Island; for a 12 year old it was exhilarating reading.Delete
OMG I love that movie! And yes, Pat Boone runs around in shorts and I like that. Old movies are so much fun (even though like you say, sometimes they have nothing to do with the source material).ReplyDelete
The thing with that See You Next Tuesday is that she's an example of the moral bankruptcy of the current GOP and a sample of the intellectual capacity of its leaders and followers: all bustle and empty slogans custom made to inflame emotions. The Repugs own the party of grievance.
Oh, and those dead by their choosing? Well, they're really free now, no?
Not only are they free, they're unable to vote... oh, wait, we're talking about Republicans.Delete
I was just thinking the other day how we are a product of the TV we watch. How the shows we grew up with and the shows we love shape our view of reality. I find it hard to watch new shows. They are stuffed with the current agenda of the media. I watched five minutes of Wheel of Time on Amazon before I could not stomach it.ReplyDelete
Haven't seen that yet, don't know if I will. Occasionally I'll watch something new, but usually lose interest before the series ends.Delete
The Boebert bitch better watch herself. And she should look to Ohnan for how to do her job...not to mention how to have class and decorum.ReplyDelete
She is one of the stupids who desperately believe they're in the majority.Delete
Did you know Boebert's husband spent four days in jail for public indecency and lewd exposure before she married him?ReplyDelete
Doesn't surprise me, but keep in mind she'd see that as rather romantic.Delete
