The Underground Space Station

As I write this, the funeral for George Floyd is in underway in Houston. The commentary about this case, and the coronavirus before it, has pretty much driven me away from social media. Not because people are saying things I disagree with–reasoned discussion is a hallmark of an intelligent person and developed relationships. Several people I know I have eliminated from the roll of my Facebook call as all they would ever do is spout, well, nastiness. I don’t need that in my life, no matter how long I’ve known a person. These aren’t the people I want to talk about right now.
The ones I want to discuss are the uneducated, unthinking ones. Some are related to people I know, some are just loud and obnoxious so everyone hears them. They’ll take whatever agrees with their viewpoint from the media and run with it, arguing to the last even…

Cord CoverSo, I played around with Youtube in order to record a blog post because (1) it would have been multiple long blog posts that I don’t have time to write at the moment and (2) why not? Here’s the post in the form of three videos that are really more audio than video since I do not do video editing.

It’s a well-done ghost story that the gang has a great time discussing… Well, except for Jerry, listen to find out why!

Six years later, still the best thing to come out of Game of Thrones becoming such a big pop culture phenomena. Although, South Park’s ‘Black Friday’ trilogy was damned close to as good. 

(more…)

The movie itself was controversial enough, but then the stories from the set began to circulate and the people behind the film were almost tried for murder. Not a review of the film, but a look at its making that, at a little over 2,000 words, only barely covers the insanity on the set.

Cover.jpgOkay, let’s get this out of the way early just in case you get curious enough to track it down and give it a look. You might not ever want to watch this film. I recommend it to people if they want to see/feel the power of a film to gut punch you and sicken you. Sounds extreme? Think I’m joking? I’m not. I know people who will swear this film damn near traumatized them when they saw it without being warned of the contents, and even a few who said that afterward despite knowing what they were in for.
