woensdag 20 november 2019

Happy Birthday to our favorite dark warrior of Star Wars - Adam Driver. On the Late Show, Steve Colbert wonders... If anybody was thinking about settling down with Kylo Ren, what would Kylo Ren be like in a marriage? Answer: understanding, gentle and tall.
woensdag 20 november 2019 Midnight movie - The Last Jedi - in honor of Adam. Kylo Ren: The Empire, your parents, the Resistance, the Sith, the Jedi... let the past die. Kill it, if you have to. That's the only way to become what you are meant to be.
This is really quite a day! #SondlandSings Breaking news - Sondland Bombshell: 'We Followed The Presidents' Orders'
Sondland is throwing everyone under the bus and I’m here for it!
Almost no more snow. No snow, please. No more! But that's not realistic. Read: The Secret to Enjoying a Long Winter.
Let's have an Ohio winter — a real winter, with lots of snow, below-freezing temperatures, and little daylight. More reading, more hiking, more reflection, more soup, more movies.

dinsdag 19 november 2019 Midnight - a 1958 American black-and-white science fiction horror film - Attack of the Puppet People.
Stuffed Rooster Stolen in Oberlin. Taken from the Blue Rooster Bakehouse on South Main Street. Please return it to its proper home.
It's going to be a bumpy ride. Today I watch the Vindman Testimony. Vindman: Dad, don't worry, I will be ok for telling the truth.
Back to Lorain Cancer Center for more tests. They filled 15 tubes with my blood. Back to Oberlin. I walk and relax to some mellow blues on WOBC. Nice to swing a little while in the dark park.

maandag 18 november 2019

maandag 18 november 2019 Midnight movie - Forbidden Planet. The image below may put across a dire point: Monsters from the Id exist in our country. America has always had an id.
The Grapes of Wrath is a 1940 American drama film based on John Steinbeck's 1939 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name. It's about an Oklahoma family who moved to California during the Dust Bowl 1930s. Henry Fonda's performance as Tom Joad got a nomination from the Academy. As Ma Joad said We're the people. I don't go to bed until 5AM. The windows in my apartment face East, so the bright sun beams right into it. So, I'm up for Stephanie Miller. I hear a great parody by Rocky Mountain Mike of Elton John's 1995 hit song The Bitch is Back - Yovanovitch is Back. I went to the oncologist in Elyria today. That was a waste of time. Back home to watch the 2019 Finnish-German comic science fiction action film Iron Sky: The Coming Race. (It reminds me a little of the 1984 campy, sci-fi movie Buckaroo Banzai.)

zondag 17 november 2019 'Saturday Night Live' gives impeachment hearings a melodramatic twist. SNL included Cleveland Browns' Myles Garrett (Kenan Thompson) into all their taunting. And with his helmet, he hit Rudy Giuliani (Kate McKinnon) in the head and fixed him.
Days of Our Impeachment Cold Open - SNL. Fun show! Trick is a 1999 American gay-themed romantic comedy film. It's been a while. I love the Lesbian Diner Scene towards the end. What a monologue by Katherine! Oh my god, I have to tell you about this really artsy party this French-Canadian girl in my acting class threw...
Out to say 'hi' to the cardinals, blue jays, squirrels and The Rock.

zaterdag 16 november 2019

zaterdag 16 november 2019 Do you know what time it is? Let's watch KING 5 Evening News - Applause for Yovanovitch. Mr. Yelly McYellerson is Congressman Mike Conaway (R-TX-11). You can call me Mr. Sugar Lumps. Bring in the giant carnivorous lizard! Midnight movie - MST3K: The Giant Gila Monster.
Travels with Charley, regarding existence. Three times a week from some bar, supermarket, or tire-and-tool cluttered service station, I put my calls through New York and reestablished my identity in time and space. For three or four minutes I had a name, and the duties and joys and frustrations a man carries with him like a comet's tail. It was like dodging back and forth from one dimension to another, a silent explosion of breaking through a sound barrier, a curious experience, like a quick dip into a known but alien water. -John Steinbeck
I caught Eve Jackson's interview with Blink 182 on France 24 - Blink 182: California band return with new record 'Nine'. It's nice to know that these guys are still working their Music Magic on us.

vrijdag 15 november 2019

vrijdag 15 november 2019 Midnight - dream. I dreamt that I was back in d'town Seattle. I was supposed to house-sit/dog-sit for a young guy living in an apartment in Belltown. He owed a St. Bernard dog which I had to walk every 4 hours. He was a drug dealer - like Lance in Pulp Fiction - selling to the construction workers in the city. He had a Groucho Marx movie collection which'll keep me entertained.
What is The Mandalorian? After waking up from my dream, I watch the first episode of The Mandalorian series. A baby Yoda?
I'm happy to share Impeachment Day #2 with Frances Callier & Angela V Shelton - Frangela - on Stephanie Miller. It's a magical day for all of us - Stone is Guilty and Trump Intimates Witness in Real Time.
It's a busy day in Washington DC. Is everything running smoothly at the White House? Or has Trump blown up that yet? Nothing to see here!
Nunes slams setting for ex-envoy's testimony. Pssssttt, Devin Nunes. These hearings are about impeaching Donald Trump. Someone should probably tell him why he's there. Trump is a criminal. ITMFA Good night, baby Yoda.

donderdag 14 november 2019

donderdag 14 november 2019 Midnight movie - Man of Steel. I enjoy the scene where Clark gets ticked off with the trucker who was harassing that poor waitress. The trucker pours beer on Clark head, and he shows restraint on that douche hose. Later, he redecorates the trucker's truck with logs. Magnificent!
Turn on France 24. The whole world is watching. Impeachment inquiry witness reveals Trump cared more about 'investigations of Biden' than about Ukraine. American politics are curious and strange. Some of the snow is melting. It's 35°F... slightly above freezing. A little snow is sitting on my bike. I take a short ride to the grocery store.
Matt Bevin Concedes In Kentucky Governor’s Race. This gives me hope for Ohio. I think that we can replace Mike DeWine.
I want to end the day with some Entertainment and Earth Invasion Tonite from Anton Petrov. (But Anton's brain doesn't pulsate like Morbo's.) I find it fascinating how the galaxies move and organize themselves. Universe Sandbox 2 looks fun!
