THE BIG SHORT

I came upon the greatest holiday musical comedy of all time.

THE BIG SHORT

Christian Bale plays the drums.

This cinematic masterpiece chronicles events occurring between the years of 2002 and 2008.

GOODBYE MR. SMITH

Goodbye Mr. Smith

A void that cannot be filled

Haikus just aren't here

I thought about this

And I am so very lost

Counting my fingers

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Sometimes it takes me awhile to digest a loss. I deny. Creative Corner was one man's corner in my mind.

Two AM and all seems lost to me. Maybe I am reminded of my own mortality...

That is all I got right now.

THE OA

I recently viewed a Louis CK 'stand-up' on Youtube.

Except this 'stand-up' was not a comedy stand-up.

He gets me every time, except he was not looking for laughs.

WHAT THE HELL IS A STAND-UP COMEDIAN DOING A STAND-UP AND NOT SEEKING LAUGHS?

I do not know and when I found this exposition I was given no background with regard to this riff.

NOAH'S ARK

Last night I viewed two or three hours of the National Geographic Channel that centered upon Noah's Ark.

Okay?

So there I saw men in their early 40's? And these men were (once again) demonstrating that there was in fact a Noah's Ark; that all wild life (except for those who thrive in the seas or the fresh lakes?) had been destroyed by the wrath of God (what the hell did a hippo ever do that transgressed the laws of God?) and so God chose Noah

To build an Ark?

OBEY TOOK ME BACK TO THE ODYSSEY

The discussion with my old friend Obey involved Julian Jaynes and his essay entitled:

THE ORIGIN OF CONSCIOUSNESS IN THE BICAMERAL MIND.

I had not heard from Obey for years? and yet he made some comment on my latest blog and he inspired me to look up an old blog from years back (7 years?) involving Jaynes.

STRICT CONSTUCKTIONISM

(DeNiro in some film he did)

Everybody is screaming about the foxes who will soon run wild in the hen houses!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAGBLOGGERS!

Thanksgiving grace 1942.jpg

I hide.

I am a hermit.

I speak on a telephone with my children.

I speak to others, sort of, on the internet.

Ha

We had a blizzard up here in the great white north on the 18th.

When I say blizzard, I mean a real blizzard.

There is a situation-comedy airing on the History Channel called:


THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND


I think I wrote about it a couple of years ago.

PERSON OF INTEREST

 

The Mask (film) poster.jpg

I have been streaming Person of Interest on Netflix lately because I have no life and it keeps me from falling into total despair as I view the election proceedings dissolve into chaos.
