Hello Tuesday! Temps here are supposed to climb into the upper 30s (F). Tomorrow into the 40s (F). And by Thursday will be in the 50s (F). Now, how's that for a rebound from the Cyclone Bomb?
Plans were to go see Babylon this evening. They've changed. It opened poorly. That doesn't usually phase me, what does is that it has a 3 hour + running time. Another thing: the film was advertised more as a comedy with dramatic moments and that's wrong. It's an all out drama, little comedy, about the problems Hollywood dealt with in the switch from silent films to talkies. I'm thinking someone should have told Damian Chazelle there's already been a really super movie made about that time. It's a little thing called "Singin' in the Rain."
The NYT has a good list of people who died during 2022, that includes many you wouldn't know about. One of those mentioned was Tim Considine, who played Frank Hardy, of the Hardy Boys on Disney's Micky Mouse Club, a long, long, time ago. I was 6 years old at the time, and yes, I did love the Hardy Boys. Joe Hardy was played by Tommy Kirk, a Disney regular until they found out he was gay and kicked him out.
I've never heard of George Santos so I had to look him up. Man that's a lot of lying out of one mouth isn't it!ReplyDelete
He is a fairly scurvy chap. The fact that his party doesn't seem to care, says a lot of about their failures.Delete
The list of those in memorian again is a long one this year. Let's hope there's no surprise again on New Year's like Betty White last year.ReplyDelete
I don't really watch them anymore, probably because so many people I grew up with are going to start to die.Delete
Republican = lying, cheating, hate filled SOS in my book. When the Republican Party finally dies I will dance naked in the streets. Picture that if you can.ReplyDelete
There was a time, 40 or 50 years ago, when they weren't so obvious.Delete
What??? A Republican has been outed as a blatant liar???? You.Don't.Say.ReplyDelete
If he were brilliant, I don't think he'd have been caught.Delete
I used to like reading the Hardy Boys books as a kid.ReplyDelete
The were written by F. W. Dixon, who was not one person, but a group of several writers who also worked on the Nancy Drew series, as well as others.Delete
