  1. Reminds me that Norm should be back after Sunday.
  2. Bad movie report: Watched one last night which was definitely worth missing. "Another Earth" is a 2011 Indie pseudo-science fiction flick starring Brit Marling and William Mapother (don't worry, you'll probably never see these names again). Anyway, it kept me interested until it was over and then I went to bed angry because there was no big rubber monster which I had expected. Supposedly it was about a parallel universe (a la "Fringe") and ?quantum theory? so maybe Einstein would have liked it if he had stayed awake. The miracle was that the late Roger Ebert gave it 3 1/2 stars and that it was filmed for $100,000 and made 1 Mil. So opt for "The Conquerer" if you have the choice. I did like Mapother's solo playing on a saw, though.

  4. Time for another movie report: I watched one with Paul Newman, one of my favorite actors, last night. It is called "Quintet" and I had never heard of it. It was for good reason, I discovered. It had to be the worst movie he ever made. An unintelligible post-apocalyptic movie set in a frozen world and written by Robert Altman who did MASH. A bunch of foreign actors were upstaged by their silly looking hats and Paul seemed like he just wanted to be somewhere else. Quintet was some stupid game they played which was never explained and the final shot of Newman walking across the frozen tundra must have lasted ten minutes or longer. Anyway, skip this one unless you need some laffs. I'll now list some of my Newman favorites to wash last night from my mind 1. Slap Shot 2. The Hustler3. The Sting 4. Cool Hand Luke 5. Hombre 6. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid 7. Hud 8. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof 9. Nobody's Fool 10. The Color of Money.
  5. Oddly, it seems everyone has picked the same song called " Hmmm...can't reach this page"
  6. Tres interessant, papa. Enjoy your two hour lunch and don't forget the fromage plate.
  7. Like most graphs, this one makes absolutely no sense to me. It looks just like the one on coronavirus cases or the one on unemployment applications as far as I can tell.
  8. I wonder if he could be related to Karrington Davis who used to redshirt for the Cornhuskers???
  9. Morning movie report: With no sports to talk about, I'll pass on my recommendation to skip "The American", a 1:45 waste of time with George Clooney and a bunch of Italians. The plot was obtuse (or unintelligible) to say the least although Silverback and Standhardinger might like it for its dose of a tad of Euro soft-core porn. I have also reviewed the favorites of others listed above and would like to thank Navin (of course) for not forgetting "The Jerk". For others desiring a laugh tonight I might recommend "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" for another glimpse of Steve Martin and Michael Caine at their best. And that's my report for today.
  10. Formidable, mon ami. BTW, I forgot to post last night's long movie this morning. "First Man" was worth at least a B rating. Ryan Gosling did a pretty good job of portraying Armstrong's stoic character and the close calls he had even before the Apollo 11 mission were scary. Made me definitely decide to not become an astronaut.
  11. Ah, those were the days. And the trailer even had a Frenchman in it for Yvan. Got to go sharpen my tomahawk now.
  12. Does that mean he has to get a draft card now?
