Blade Runner 2049 (USA 2017)

images(This new Gutenberg–style of posting is taking some time to get used to. It feels like I’m typing this from the future) Anyway, the Hollywood hacks struck again last year with this beautiful looking flop. When it comes to sequels and prequels, the suits of Tinseltown cannot help themselves from reaching for that same old bottle.

I Found This Video To Be Interesting

But some others obviously didn’t and the old “comments are disabled” must have been a response to some unpleasantness. Anyway, the concepts in this clip are a welcome antidote to so much Law of Attraction you must feel intensely positive about it or you must clear out all the negative thought patterns first that can be a right turn off for those of us who are more lazy or lacking in hyper enthusiastic energy. This is much more humble and sobering. Nice.

Oh Yes I Cannes!

Whimsy  is never far away from this blog. But no visitor can argue that I don’t attempt to nourish your minds with some knowledge you may not know. Here is a lady I’d never heard of before today. She was an English actress named Simone Silva, and she wanted to make a big impression at the Cannes Film Festival in 1954. So, with a horrified Robert Mitchum (who recently celebrated his 100th birthday in the spirit world) looking on, she decided to whip ’em out. “I’ll do anything to become a star” was her mantra. These photos were big hits around the planet. Result? No Cannes do! – and she was asked to leave the festival. But she certainly succeeded in making an impression. Maybe even two. And now she makes her debut on highteadreams 63 years later. Magazine covers can be more entertaining than real life. 🙂

Over The Past Few Days

I’ve had an unpleasant cold. All the usual suspects are involved: sore painful throat, blocked sinuses, runny nose, difficulty sleeping, but perhaps there’s one improvement. I can agree with the meme below. I sound like a self-pitying frog but I kind of like it. Even my landlady (a very tough, impatient type) has felt moved to make me some broth. I knew there was an upside to feeling ill…but I can’t write any more posts for a while.
