Saw a really good movie last night ... The Vanishing of Sidney Hall. It has been a long time since I have seen a movie as well acted with as good a story as this.

Gotta also say that aside from the lack of gayness, the main character reminds me of Capote. In terms of precocity if nothing else.

Give it a shot. It may seem slow but it is a fucking story fer chrissakes. Give it time.

Read this (I found the Early Stories on line)
https://ia802803.us.archive.org/3/items ... pub%29.pdf

Particularly Miss Belle Rankin
I was eight the first time I saw Miss Belle Rankin. It was a hot
August day. The sun was waning in the scarlet-streaked sky,
and the heat was rising dry and vibrant from the earth.

I sat on the steps of the front porch, watching an
approaching negress, and wondered how she could ever carry
such a huge bundle of laundry on top of her head. She
stopped and in reply to my greeting, laughed, that dark,
drawling negro laughter. It was then that Miss Belle came
walking slowly down the opposite side of the street….

I saw her many times afterwards, but that first vision,
almost like a dream, will always remain the clearest—Miss
Belle, walking soundlessly down the street, little clouds of red
dust rising about her feet as she disappeared into the dusk
He was a teenager when he wrote that.
I was so young that I never thought that I would ever be old, that I could ever die.

Doom Patrol on HBOMax

It's a superhero show in that it deals with people who have superhuman abilities. But it isn't really as these are people whose superhuman abilities have basically fucked up their lives and they are trying to deal with it. It's a really weird show. IN one episode they were nearly eaten by a swarm of sentient butts. It's really good, if you have a taste for the bizarre.

I am not generally a fan of comedy sketches but this one is a bit different. The chick in this 1/2 hour "showcase' is Lauren Lapkus and the theme is a send up of reality shows and airhead, talentless bimbos. It is wincingly good. The character is so horrid you will have trouble watching.

L.A.s Finest, it is apparently a spin off of the Bad Boys movies, but only marginally. Apparently one of the characters is the sister of Will Smith's characters from the movies. The characters are actually pretty interesting, which the only reason I keep watching it. Because otherwise this should be called Generic Buddy Cop Movie: The TV Show

I am am currently watching Gemini Man.

It's best described as Fresh Prince Meets Burn Notice Meets The Phantom Menace. However, I must warn anyone that is tempted to watch it that my description sounds more awesome than it actually is. Though if you look at it as a really weird sequel to Fresh Prince of Bel Aire its actually a lot of fun.

Wandavision has been extraordinary. On one level it's an incredibly detailed homage to American TV history, where fans of prime time sitcoms from the 50s to the 2010s will find tons of details and references to note. As well, it's a fun and mysterious tale from the MCU that always keeps you guessing. And then on yet another level there's perving on Elizabeth Olsen. My favorite program on right now. Two more words: fake commercials.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Behind Her Eyes on Netflix. Pretty well done. You start hating most of the main characters right away, and hate them even more at the end. I don't like stories in which characters do absolutely stupid things for no logical reason, and disaster ensues. That is this type of story, except for one major character.

I like stories in which characters do the best they can and still get into trouble. Everybody's "fatal flaw" cannot always be clueless self-indulgent idiocy.

Been rewatching Black Books. If you aren't familiar with it, its a comedy about a bookstore run by a grumpy Irishman. It's incredibly funny and, other than the fact that he drinks a lot more than I do, I really identify with Bernard Black, the main character. If I ran a book store, that would probably be me, but sober. It's one of those comedies that is still funny even on the second viewing.

Staged

This one is a little hard to explain. It stars David Tennant and Micheal Sheen as themselves. It mostly consists of Zoom calls between the two (because they are locked down during the pandemic) or between them and other characters. In the first season they are trying to prepare for an upcoming play they will be starring in after the pandemic is over but they mostly argue and procrastinate. It's pretty funny

The second season has them dealing with an upcoming American Remake of the first series. Same format and so far (I am half way through it) even funnier

Started on "Falcon and Winter Soldier".

Doesn't have the "wow" factor of Wandavision's unusual and creative concept. It won't make history. But I didn't hate it and I'll keep going.

Last night was Amazon Prime’s release of Tom Clancy’s “Without Remorse”. I don’t know what they were thinking? Maybe they needed toilet paper during the pandemic, because they obviously opened the book, ripped out the pages and wiped their asses with them. It was marginally entertaining as a stand alone action adventure with SJW overtones, but did they have to put Clancy’s name on it? I get that it would seem outdated, but it’s Clark’s freaking backstory! :evil:

During D-Day, Allied soldiers captured a German soldier who turned out to be a Korean.

He did it My Way [Stop that! – Ed.]

So far not only well done, but very good battle scenes.

– J.D.

P.S.
Spoiler:
An old, old, then old WWII veteran told me a story about how he was in the Pacific. On some אל Forsaken שְׁאוֹל‎ Hole of an island, he was inline for chow when he noticed a Japanese soldier standing in line behind him. He, naturally, freaked as did the rest, but before they could kill the guy he screamed back in English that he was American.

Or did he scream back in American that he was English? [Get on with it. – Ed.]

Helpfully, their officer came up to explain that he was, indeed, an American. As the Old WWII Vet put it, "Typical. Never bother to explain to us first."

He was, I think I recall, a student at Harvard. He was second-generation and decided he should "visit the old country" at about 1939ish to 40ish.

The Japanese conscripted him.

He objected that he was an "American," but they, surprisingly, prove unpersuaded by this argument and retorted that he was Japanese. They then gave him a choice: he accept the honor of fighting for his War Criminal Emperor in the Navy, or the Air Force branch, or in the Army, or he could be executed for treason, cowardice, and a rather unseemly method of using hashi.

As he explained, he figured, "Navy? Get sunk, sharks, drown. Air? Get shot down, burn, crash, drown." He thought he might have a chance with the Army.

So there he was.

He was part of either an attack or counter-attack on the 'Murican forces taking said island. The second he hit the beach or emerged from the jungle, to my recollection, he threw his hands up.

Then, he explained, he became very, very upset over how long it took to get captured! On the one hand, he was worried the Japanese would notice, while on the other, he was worried an American would just shoot him.

It is one thing to volunteer for a war.

It is one thing to volunteer to "serve your country," and have to fight in a war you may not agree with.

It is quite another thing for the occupiers of your country to force you to fight for them.

I remind myself of this whenever I need to replace a part on my car, or my porn streaming is slower than I expect.

In the rain.
