The Dark Side Of Alice – Alice In Wonderland set to Pink Floyd‘s Dark Side Of The Moon.
What’s on your mind?
crossing hands in my lap, awaiting our Suzanne
g’evening miss elliott — how ya doing tonight
Suzanne! Waiting for Alice to load……
hey newton — how’s the bay area tonight?
our high wind warning has expired. tillamook head (to the north of me) had a gust of 80 but we only got a 58 here. the majority of that storm has moved to the east but there is still rain in the forecast for the next 7 days.
hey sunny — how’s your neck of the woods tonight?
Good evening, Suzanne. How are you and how has the day been?
hey pastfed — twas a wild and wooly day — i loved it :) how was yours?
we be chilling, homie.
Oh, wrong board..
It got to the low 70′s here, above normal, but a little windy. A cold front expected by Sunday.
Is it wrong to slap your 92 year old father upside the head, figuratively of course, for being gleeful that Maine voted against equality in marriage and ticked off that Maine voted for medical marijuana? I mean, jeez, how long does one have to be a good girl?
working on a project, but stymied so — considering the path to bed.
oh dear dearie
how nice — where’s your here?
You’ve lasted this long, what’s another ten or fifteen years?
hola miss elliott
kicking back — waiting for my back and leg to let me know that i really shudda waited to rearrange the furniture.
I was ‘polite’ about it…..and pointed out that California may have a referendum next year to outlaw divorce — just to, you know, protect marriage from the riffraff. I wondered about the Newt/Ronald Ragun/JohnMcCain/et al. — in that, hey, “marry much???”
I’m afraid you are in this one for the duration.
hehehehehehe nicely done dearie
how’s the southern part of the central ca coast tonight?
You might suggest that at his age, he ought to be OK with marijuana, if it helps others to live longer, to prolong their lives and maybe live as long as he has. He doesn’t think it’s clean living that got him there, does he? IMO its mostly genetics, and luck.
It’s beautiful on the central coast…..I drive to Santa Barbara a couple of times a week to visit my little baby grandsons, and the drive is just divine…..different every single time. Some of the best surfing lately and some of the most interesting fog and some of the loveliest views of the Channel Islands.
Good evening! I am in a strange situation of my own making. I got this wild hair about booking the Yes Men in our local colleges in response to Glenn Beck getting the keys to our county seat. I’ve researched it and there is Hall space available at Western Washington University and Skagit Valley College[ home of the key ceremony]. The historic Lincoln Theatre, target of the Beck fundraising, has openings and would love to use this as a fundraiser.
But…I need $4,000 down and the rest at time of show, and I don’t want to charge the students more then a few bucks.
Am I chasing unicorns?
But if the job be done, they must be on the happy side
Salt Lake City. This is unusual weather for November, we’ve been fortunate and had a real Indian Summer for once, like the ones I remember from childhood in Ohio.
Fo’ Schizzle, my Whizzle!
when I first read tha,t I thought you asked
“Am I chasing Acorns”
hey emerson — how’s the east bay dood? fo’ schizzle indeed
I am just too white to pull it off.
h/t Marshall Mathers…
Hard core Republicans are cantankerous. I think it was Molly Ivins who said of one of the Bushes, “He was born on third base and thought he’d hit a triple” — or words to that effect. These types believe that they ‘earned’ every friggin’ thing they have…..they forget whatever help they got along the way, and they really don’t care about who lands in the gutter through no fault of their own.
my youngest was in st george until earlier this year. she really enjoyed it but said the only seasons were snow, blazing hot, and construction :)
Google GOES Disk.
There’s a mess outside of HA and CTuttle that looks pretty ominous!
WE need the rain, in CA.
Not sure what you need or want . . . send it to CA!
Dearie, have you ever gone to Santa Barbara on the first Sunday of the month (every month)? The local Vets for Peace group sets up “Arlington West” on the beach about 7 in the morning, and take it down about 4 or 5 in the afternoon. Takes a good hour or two to set up more than 3000 crosses on the beach, but they have a very organized way of doing it.
What’s on my mind? The disgusting speculation after this shooting today. I’ve said in the past that we on the left need to prepare for the rampant speculation and politicizing for ever shooting because the right certainly does. They instantly politicize it as they tell everyone that we will be politicizing it. Usually it is they anticipate some kind of gun control arguments coming from us. (I wonder what they will use this time. “The base was actually a gun free zone! More people should be able to wear guns!”
What I see this time is that they are pushing the “It’s a Muslim terrorist!” bit. Even if it turns out that it is all about PTSD or some personal story we don’t now about yet.
The Right wing media is saying that the shooter is
1) A Muslim who didn’t like the war
2) Probably did it because of his faith.
Here is my question. Is there any consequences for outrageous speculation? Should there be? Today Brian Sussman was mocking the journalism convention of “alleged shooter”. It makes sense if they aren’t journalists, why should they have to say alleged? They are just gossips and they can call out the person’s name and say, “This guy is the shooter and we should put a bullet in his head” as one woman did.
But if they are not journalists should they be given the same level of defense from defamation that journalist get? I say no.
And they know they can get away with it because the person called out will probably not go after them for being misidentified like Richard Jewel was during the Olympic bombings. But they are also calling out Muslims and Sussman was mocking them as “The Religion of Peace”
Sussman made it clear that although he doesn’t know what the guy was saying while he was shooting it wouldn’t surprise him if it was Allahu Akbar. Then he taunts CAIR for defending Muslims and reminds people that CAIR gets funding from terrorists.
The right is just itching to find an enemy in this shooting. If the enemy was PTSD? Well whose fault is that? Bush? Oh no. A caller on the show called up and said, “The shooter was a democrat and an Obama supporter who was disappointed in Obama.” So as you can see, it was really Obama who caused this.
Then the caller went on to say that it is the liberals who are the violent ones, not the tea partiers.
When an event happens their rush to imprint their narrative on it is fast and ruthless it would be nice to prepare for their crazy speculation.
I’m trying to prepare the community for when some tea bagger takes a shot at a politician. I want Fox and the organizers to be financially liable because that is the only way they will get that they should not be inciting their base.
It’s a family affair, and being a girl has nothing to do with it . . . I’d hope your prog brothers feel the same way.
hey larue — i’m enjoying what i got but it don’t look like it is headed your way
hey openhope — almost didn’t see you come in
I have……and have been enormously moved every time I see it.
hey spocko — always nice to see you
You are a MISS Elliott?
All this time . . . well, nice to meetcha in a definitive gender form.
Have always like your posts!!!
You don’t need anyone to tell you that asshole Sussman would get right on it.
While I applaud your vigilance, you give them far too much credit by hoping or praying otherwise.
hey funny d — how’s seattle tonight?
LOL about the construction. It seems to last from spring to late fall. I drive down there once in awhile, and there’s almost always construction zones on the interstate, where it’s cut down to one lane. Usually you end up following a slow semi, cause there’s lots of uphill and downhill.
Wow, that’s a tough one. My mother said that she was worried about “that Obama” before he was elected because some “crazy person” might take a shot at him because of his race. I pointed out that some “crazy people” took shots at Reagan, Ford, and Kennedy.
She was using a concern for his safety to mask her real problems with him, I pointed out that all Presidents have that problem.
yup. she was real happy when she moved to oregon where there is actual ‘green’. of course she is currently either still in kansas or now in colorado where she is gonna hunker down for the winter.
Suz, love the “drink me” bottle, always have.
So much I opened one. But it says Guinness ;-)
does it make you smaller? *laughing*
I have a neo-con twin brother. The women in my family are liberals; men are radical conservatives. Fortunately my daughters married good men, and I’ve had wonderfully well balanced men friends over my lifetime.
go ask alice
Hey Larue, how are ya?
Wet and chilly. Good thing I got a little of the sun on Tuesday…not going to see it much more than you will this coming week.
The chilly makes Teh Kitteh extra snuggly, though.
How’s Token and Bailey? How’s yer toofers?
Any that comes my way, I shall redirect to you.
bailey is hiding under my bed still — she doesn’t like the weather. token has finally quit being a quivering puddle of manly wussiness — he most definately does not like the wind and rain against the windows. once it died down he stopped and started acting his usual big dog self. he is currently munching on a lamb shank bone from dinner.
Have you ever produced a show before?
Do you know what the contractual obligations are?
It’s all as confusing and detailed as construction biz and THEIR contract negotiations.
A person that KNOWS contract operations in construction is worth their weight in gold.
A person that knows how and why and what in promotions and event production and marketing is worth THEIR weight in gold.
If you don’t have the experience, or someone to GUIDE you thru it all, that has 30 years or MORE of that kind of experience, get the phook out of it now.
The days of students, or non students making experience and careers and money out of using university, college, or public facilities are long gone.
It’s a cut throat business, top to bottom. You could lose your ass.
If you DO proceed, read each line, and if you don’t understand ONE line, get out.
Course, at contract signing, you have already committed yourself to paying SOMETHING, to get out of it.
I’m tellin ya, you can lose yer shirt if ya don’t have any experience in these matters.
Just tryin to help.
That’s why I sent you this:
You homie, ewe.
Yer schnizzle don’t stink.
Man, Gracie looks like a kid! Wow! Maybe 21, does anyone know?
That’s Ohio’s weather for you. Snow, humid summer, and orange barrel (construction) season.
A Hah! There’s an excuse to believe in.
Yeah! Lovin on the Snoop/Morrison remix! No, you dint!
doesn’t say when that was filmed but iirc white rabbit came out in 67???
Spocko, you reach too far . . . in a manner of speaking.
Can you do something within your circle of life?
Sure, be aware, advise others, and do the best you can.
What would you wish to achieve at a grander level?
What would be your goals?
Do you have a plan?
oh yes i did
love that backbeat and how it went so seamlessly with riders.
Has it turned? It sure looked fierce earlier today! *G*
got that 58 gust this afternoon. now there is thunder and lightning bands off the coast — token ain’t gonna like that at all.
The black people in my neighborhood expressed that concern…I took it as kind of a “He would be a good president, but here’s what could happen” kind of thing. Like they wanted to hope but were afraid to at the same time.
Yes, I think it did come out in ’67.
Wow, bless you and I feel sorry for you.
I really detest my fellow males when they stray from reality.
It makes the rest of us look bad.
But I feel the same way about Bachman, Snowe, and a few others, too . . *G*
Doin fine . . . as fine can be.
Wish I had a fest, and a ton of local pickin pals, but I’m woikin on that . . *G*
I thought overall, in spite an insinuation or two, the Fox News I watched this afternoon tried not to speculate irresponsibly. At one point Shep had on the shooter’s cousin (purported cousin) who described the shooter’s frustration with the continuing harassment from the blame ALL Muslims for all our ills crowd he lived with. Mind you, no excuses for the shooter; killing isn’t the answer, that is what we struggle against – nonsensical slaughter.
Sad so many are so quick to jump on the all-Muslims-are-terrorists bandwagon. Is there any way to open those closed eyes and hearts?
I’m glad the shooter survived, maybe we can learn how this tragedy came to be. And from there prevent future massacres.
Death is so final, isn’t it?
rain and snow do tend to put a damper on the fest festivities
Just what else you got in the racks waiting to feature on your blog?
You? Have LAMB BONE SHANKS, left over dinner?
My god, I hope you didn’t butcher that poor delectible and ruin it.
Care to share a recipe? Hmmm?
Elliot, I read your response at 10:24 and now at 10:42 I can submit.
Yeah, it’s kind of like chasing ACORN, only different. *g*
My heroes. Along with Alan Grayson.
I’m so torn!!! I hate when everything is available except the cash!! I can’t come up with a way to raise $12,000 by April. It’s too big for me in that amount of time.
guess you will just have to stop by often and find out emerson
aww shucks, *kickin’ the dust* thanks, LaRue
Ellie, nice to see you this late and yes it is very final. I want to know what was going on, why, etc.
lamb shanks onions tomatoes lotsa garlic the usual salt pepper rosemary with enough water to come up about half up up the shank…. iin a foil wrapped baking dish in the oven around 300 or so until the meat falls off the bone when tugged.
served over rice.
29 years old or so.
Born in ’39.
and that the lessons learned were learned so that future events do not happen.
so even Faux handled that better than CNN? Had a JAG jag saying this could be a terrorist attack on old man King’s show. Disgusting.
the only coverage of it i saw was ko and trms tonight. i thought rachel provided a very fact based coverage
Yer better n you let on, gal. *G*
Only missing lemon and oregano . . .
A splash of ouzo, some fennel . . /whistling
Yes I have a plan and have been executing on it since 2006. So most recently I forced KSFO and Brian Sussman to move their faux town hall from the front of Pelosi’s office to Justin Herman Plaza and then messed up all their media coverage. I wrote about it here;
How to Kick Tea Bagging Sponsors in the Wallet And Mess up their Media Coverage
Then I made it clear to KSFO’s (Sussman’s) parent corporation that they need to prepare for violence at his Tea Party and Faux Town Hall events. I wrote about it here: Will Citadel be Financial Liable for Town Hall Mobs Organized by Their Radio Hosts?
That resulting in Sussman getting some warning letters from his parent company and being VERY careful with how he talked about dealing with Obama when he was in town. All the violent language was kept in check, if it wasn’t I was prepared to go to the Secret Service and ask them to have a chat with him.
Yesterday I wrote about the financial consequences to News Corp if a Fox sponsored Tea Party attendee kills someone. I wrote about it here:
What’s News Corp’s ROI When Someone is Shot at a Tea Party?
I contacted 20 financial analysts and newspapers to raise the question. If I had wanted to I could have probably asked ol’ Rupert the questions myself, but I was hoping someone would ask for me. Maybe next quarter.
The link I made with the financial analysts was the Entercom lawsuit for wrongful death that cost the station $16.6 million dollars. I also questioned the standard wisdom that losing 81 advertisers on the Glenn Beck show was no big deal and if he was being subsidized by Murdock for ideological reasons then the stock holders shouldn’t have to foot that bill. I was appealing to the greed and the short term financial interests of the shareholders. The shareholders wealth is all that corporations are supposed to care about, and if Murdock is costing them money he needs to at least say, ‘I’m going to lose money on Beck for 3 more quarters because I’m paying for it.” He should also have to prove that the ratings of Beck has translated to overall greater revenue for the station since he is now not generating direct revenue for the company anymore.
Well then, I guess I will. I had no idea I even liked that genre.
I might have to come visit you again soon!
That’s one good thing about cooler weather–oven meals!
didn’t have any oregano and forgot the lemon in the fridge.
i used to be domesticated — i don’t act it much but i still remember a lot of the hows….
I need to check them out. That was the first time I’ve turned on CNN in months, literally. Still have that bad taste in my mouth.
Margot! Yes, compulsion and compassion to understand.
my girls got me used to it. first one was a teen in the 90′s and the second in the 00′s.
lotsa bass in their music and i got used to that dr dre backbeat bass line.
trms is like a breath of fact based reporting fresh air. plus she’s a geek and is pretty snarky.
You KNOW you won me over with that lots garlic thang . . . . you keep notes about us all?
open invite as always funny.
token wags his tail your direction
She’s da bomb, she is!
Plus, she’s on MSNBC, not CNN.
hehehehehe i figured it was the non recipe recipe with some of this and some that style *wink*
no notes — who has to keep notes about one’s friends?
OOOOH big lightning flash and 3 mississippi’s away thunder
OH. Yer THAT Spocko!
That’s nice work, hoss.
Well, I better get back to it and finish up …
oh sheet did i screw that up? she’s on msnbc at 6pm west coast immediately after ko
Good cheffing is SO not about domestication.
It’s about making good shit to eat!!!
Yer doin fine!
I’m just jealous I’m not eating leg of lamb, or ANY lamb!!!
We just bought 1/4 of a steer. It won’t be ready until next Oct. The local ranchers are into developing these programs where they raise a steer for individual people. They’re trying to make a go of it with people committing to the animal. It’ll be raised on grass until it’s time to start gaining fat then the diet gets tuned to fat marbling.
In buying into the beef we found out that this is available in pork and lamb,too. It’s a very cool way to eat meat. No feedlots or forced corn diets. Local. We’ll pay $500 for 300 lbs of farm raised beef.
He hee, really? Guess I’ll start seriously considering starting to think about perhaps making a plan!
We could get up to all kindsa mischief, there around the woodstove.
And maybe the Tillamook factory would have more lines working…and I hear the artisan cheese place is pretty fine, too…
When are you gettin’ your new teef, again?
the fundy and i did that one year — we got 1/2 a steer raised by a fellow cop. was wonderful meat. we also did it wtih a lamb and the same cop that year. saved lotsa money in the long run.
You know who is really amazing?
I don’t think so…
someone mentioned that they weren’t watching CNN, but they might try Rachel’s show. I just wanted to set the record straight that the incomparable Dr Maddow does NOT appear on the same Cable network as Lou Dobbs.
hey ppd — how’s the south south bay?
wheeee more lightning and thunder.
wow — that is sweet emerson.
Well done, spocko. You’re turning Network (1976) on its head.
Thanks. By the way I wanted to second your Open Hope at 59, you sound like someone who as been burned and don’t want to see someone else burned that was very nice of you to share your experience.
I will say to OpenHope this. Often times there are other groups whose goals line up with yours and you can bring energy and ideas to them. Part of the trick is finding the right group. I found the EFF and we helped each other. The defended me against ABC/Disney and I promoted the issue of Fair Use.
Recently I’ve been trying to find a group that wants to challenge the right wing radio host Sean Hannity and his views on torture. I’m looking to someone in the religious community. I’ve been unsuccessful and I’ve talked to several people and groups. I’m too aggressive for them, I would raise their visibility too much. It’s like what Jane says about Veal Pen groups. They are expected not to rock the boat, especially if it might upset the donors.
I catch her replays on I tunes the next day. Don’t get MSNBC on my directv for some reason. Same with KO.
jon stewart is just ripping glenn beck with his impression of that cookoo bird
Sounds awesome. Get the farmer and the customers together directly, and everybody gets a fair deal.
300# is a lotttta meat, though.
I’d have to organize a sub-syndicate among my city-dwelling friends.
Then I’d also have to get better at cooking it…
Where are ya up north, Openhope? I’m on the Sno-King county line, near I-5, and a girlfriend of mine just moved onto 4 acres west of Marysville (near Tulalip, but not tribal).
write them and protest.
Cooled off and the low clouds rolled in today — though no rain yet.
Otherwise, everything is good here.
That sounds like a great way to go. Especially the part about not getting a lot of corn. I read that corn isn’t that great for them. Grass is the way to go.
Last night for dinner I did a fall dinner thing. Celery Root and Russet potatoes mashed. Caramelized onions with apples slices, Black beans and bacon bits in a balsamic vinaigrette on a bed of arugula.
It’s probably cuz I haven’t changed my package in 10 years. But, I’m actually switching to Dish soon anyway.
Fork Rupert Murdoch…
PPD-good to see ya.
Nod beckons. Thanks suzanne.
‘nite pups. Catch ya on the flip.
oh that sounds wonderful. *sigh*
Time for bed. Goodnite, Suz, goodnite, all.
Yes. For the past 20 years. We’ve sold alchohol in public parks, raffled off up front parking spots during our annual Ferry haulout. Those are gold. We built a small but gorgeous community park with ball field,soccer field, picnic shelter, playground,tennis court. One fundraiser at a time. I booked our local War Memorial Park and hosted a anti-war rally with food,music, speakers and march the last time I got a wild hair.
But nothing you can’t pull off with a $1,000 up front and a great public cause.
You’re absolutely right in the logistics. They become a full time job. And I’ve got the time.
I feel almost a sense of duty on this particular Yes Men event. For our youngbloods. Logic says let it go.
You know if you are ever in SF I’ll cook for you. My specialty is really desserts. This month I’ll be making my favorite fall dish Cranberry Apple Almond crisp. I serve it warm with vanilla ice cream.
Anyone notice a huge increase in their spam email over the past few weeks?
A couple weeks ago, my friend made me mashed yams and put canned chipotle peppers in ‘em. Mmmm, mmmm good! Love the hot kick with the sweet…
i’ll be sure to let ya know next time i head down. desserts are my favorite meal. jen made me an apple pear crisp for my birthday — she got the recipe from an ina garten barefoot contessa cookbook — it was yummy.
Ohh that’s a great idea! On Monday I microwaved acorn squash then took the cooked pulp in a pot with a bit of butter and some brown sugar. I topped it with pecans toasted in butter.
My Norton spam filter catches most of them, up to 100 per day now.
even with my norton i’m still getting more than usual at my gmail spam filters
I’m in Skagit. I’m thinking with 300 lbs of clean beef you can probably sell some at cost. It’s a lot of meat.
You don’t need to live here to buy into a steer.I’m not sure how I’ll do driving by the animal regularly. Probably don’t want to give it treats.
Sounds like we have big waves coming this weekend — time for a coastal photo shoot
or a name
maybe cuz I have an Apple?
Oh. I think I have that barefoot contessa cookbook! I’ll look it up.
Last week I made and apple pie from scratch using fresh picked apples from Sebastopol. The crust is made with big flakes of butter. I keep the dough cold and then bake it on a hot pizza stone. The crush was super flaky.
the recipe called for some cranberries iirc but jen didn’t include them — she didn’t want it too tart since it was a birthday crisp
I don’t know if this would be helpful to you or not. It’s a group http://www.faithinpubliclife.org/
and I don’t know much about them. I thought I’d throw it out there just in case. I get their e-newsletter, thought it looked interesting; isn’t really.
Just wanted to know if I should take the increased spam avalanche personally.
same here, yes.
Oh, hey! The thunder-bumpers have arrived here. Aaaaaand the torrential rain.
The cat came back in just in time. I swear, he just wanted to sit out on the porch and watch the rain. He can be pretty funny that way.
I love the Skagit valley. Beautiful farm country. How is farmland-preservation going there, do you know?
when i drove up the the pacific northwest 5 years ago i drove to the skagit valley. all the daffodils were blooming but not the tulips (was march iirc). i love that area — so pretty and the mountains and the waters on either side.
Next time you come up, we’ll drive up north and take the Chukkanut Drive scenic drive back south. It’s gorgeous. Big-Sur like sea views and then, BAM, you come out into the Skagit Valley, wide and flat.
Mid-to-late April is good for Tulips. Weekdays are best for crowd-avoidance.
This really is a beautiful place to live.
That’s a buck 66 a lb . . . NICE, for home growed and local good.
Heck, that’s insane for $1.66 a lb.
I’d buy that at the store for weeks and freeze it.
u betcha i’ll come up and we can road trip! i wanna also head over to see rainer’s grand lodge — and i wanna get up to hood to see timberline.
hahahaha they don’t have a manager they have a gardener
nice trip down memory lane larue
Dayam, I gotta start playing the Lotto!
Sounds like much fun. Haven’t been to Rainier in years and years.
Thasss some fine food, hoss.
We NEED more foodie shit at LLN.
I mean, if Suz is doin LAMB stuff, and all . . .
Yeah, more spam and now the Repugs are calling me and sending surveys, too.
i’m gonna save up after i get teeth. i figure spring i should be able to .. wishin’ and hopin’
Well then, you GO hoss.
Get ‘er done!
It’s an onward battle. We just saved 70 acres to put into trust in our community this summer. Huge effort.
yummy yummy i got food on my tummy
I was just posting this one. This is their best song.
I are scared of myself.
Somedays I think,” So, what’s the deal with the Jesus complex?”. *g*
jimmy d’s intro to the group
Gotta wait for Spring anyway, for this kind of trip.
And on that note, I must bid all y’all a fond goodnight. Thanks for the company!
I REFUSE to look, I just KNOW it’s 1910 Fruit Gum Company.
Suz, yer inner Pop 40 is runnin unrestrained and unfiltered for the crap factor.
PLEASE, engage crap filter!!!! *G*
Well, good on you guys. Thank you for struggling for a greater good.
I thought Jimmy Durante was in the Box Tops, no?
LOved me some old school garage band top 40 SF Bay area hits!
Empy Babes!!! *G*
KYA Raydeo, 1260!
KEWB, Channel 91 One Sports SCORE Board!
And a few others in the AM genre I fergit.
Oh, KYA! And KSOL!!
your chain is so easy to yank dood (lmao)
TTFN sounds like a plan.
Goodnight all. Sweet dreams.
Never sent ME a letter!
Yesh it is.
And frankly, ma damn, that’s the definitive between crass commercial crap and the real good garage band and other musics of the time.
Don’t get me started in a battle of the bands for SF Bay Area . . *G*
Or OLD Mac v. Nookie and Bucky . . .
i remember some deep disappointments back in those days dood
I did. It must be snail mail
also covered by joe
Too many drugs, bad amps, bad mixers, bad sound in general?
Em, you and Suz are falling for the way obvious!!!
there are those who said if you can remember you were not there…
so put up or shut up dood *G* show us what ya got….
Be sure to write in your ardent support for Joe the Whore Lieberman as your favorite republican.
My mailman is automated, dood.
Or as Albert Brooks said to Meryl Streep in “Defending Your Life,”–”Leave me alone, I’m dead.”
Deja vu in Hollywood
Albert Brooks used the same line on Holly Hunter in Broadcast News, too.
Dino Valenti, Gary Duncan, John Cioppilina, David Freidberg, Greg Elmore.
Gimme some SF Bay Area Rock if ya can . . . *G*
Brang it, sistah. *G*
The sandman cometh — night all
Albert Brooks is a genius. I wish he’d write and produce more. I could watch “Defending” every day.
Nite PPD. Later.
i’ll see your mona and raise ya some mary lou
I thought I smelled some Pink Floyd.
Trying to drag me out of the wood work are ya?
Just in time for the G’Thud, ya are.
Leon Russell kicked azz!
Maher is kicking az zon Letterman, too!!
hey busted and g’thud — and yeah i thought that might drag ya out….
Broadcast News is a bookend to Network with 20 years in between
i loved broadcast news — holly hunter *swoon* i love her voice
Maher says, “What’s happened in the last 30 years is the Democrats moved to the right, and the republicans moved to the insane asylum.”
sad but true
agree. I have to watch Network again. Been a while.
pretty concise analysis.
Geez Suz, how did you ever get 210 posts out of this group with virtually none on Fort Hood?
’bout time for me to head out.
g’nite all and thanks for the music and discussions tonight.
Did some one say, Albert Brooks?
Hush UP about the blues!!!!
lotsa folk use late late nite as a place to escape the horrors of the day. others use it to discuss in detail said horrors. really is the luck of the tide at the lake emerson
Sounds like a plan. G’nite Suz and pups.
Heh, I was there . . . I think . . ?
‘K, that don’t suck . . *G*
Sigh, they all gone *poof*
Rock on pups, and we hope tomorrow is a better day.
Dang, Albert’s Shuffle, still playin. Dang.
I’ve had an itch, “a worry”, for some time now. There was a concern about the Pittsburgh economics meeting, but now what I ‘sniff’ is problems coming into America via Miami via air or sea ports. Where is it coming from? Sen. Schumer may have a clue.
It may be something explosive, but it could also be a completely legitimate person intent on bad things. It might even be someone (or a group) who has already been here a while or traveling to and from U.S. for some time (a business traveler for example). Attempts to get block problems via Europe would seem to have failed.
