born yesterday

23 Apr

BornYesterday is a lovely movie starring melanieGRIFFITH who plays a dumb blonde and johnGOODMAN who hires donJOHNSON to tutor her.

*****

Ms.Griffith’s voice is so beautiful that it is easy to see why she steals the show whenever she plays in any old show. In fact, I cannot guess whether she was voice coached to use a Brooklyn accent in WorkingGirl or if she’s from Brooklyn (although anyone from Brooklyn would obviously know) my point being, im guessing Ms.Griffith can sing.

the repetitive themes of conflict recur

 

including all the anthropological categorys primarily

red, yellow and blue

then there is the duality question … sex differences, age differences, with a little bit of nuance there for the tweens and their ilk, the either/or things that make sooooooo much difference!

what girls do is they judge from their feelings

then there is this kind of thing in a country founded on religious freedom…  https://sojo.net/articles/wheaton-students-call-wheaton-college-reinstate-professor-hawkins

 

disposable income

no one talks about money

how many people know how much money you have, how much you make and everyone assumes the best

 

ahhahah this is supposedly to keep class from being about money

as if it were …  ahhahah  okay so what is going on here culturally

 

it is a universal  for one thing

the relationship between elegance and affluence

it’s kind of like England and France

there is something about being able to afford the luxury of being elegant but most people don’t realize the style is absolutely one of conscientious consideration, anything less is not a French aristocrat

that girl does it all  … she can run a household of 1000 servants
can you afford that many?

can you imagine, how much work a woman must have had to take care of all the slaves?

and how some of them just despaired of it and largely ignored them, letting them take care of themselves, although they had no resources

but do not despair, Gentlemen have an equally stringent calling  for conscientious consideration… if they want to have any class, they are devoted husbands to their wife and that was not even a possibility when they were comparing notes after dinner when the ladies retired to the withdrawing room while they smoked and drank

the ladies had tea
and when coffee became introduced
it was considered a la mode
to have a touch of nutmeg
nutmeg was 250 pounds an ounce

can you imagine?
That’s like the equivalent of $400 now.

History is full of so many interesting things.

Because people have the silliest ideas.
And the sexual politics is a wellspring of sport!

surveillance is the new piss test

having to hand over your very own pee to a strange lab rat was once considered a huge violation of privacy

now they record everything we share on wireless
and every one shrugs “i have nothing to hide”

If you have nothing to hide then post your social security number in the comments below. Thank you for giving away your rights.

oh and by the way, you also gave away your FICA taxes because that trust fund has been raided, they need to sic the antitrust dogs on themselves

another one of those good things that sound bad
even worse,
and the opposite
the bad things that sound good
e.g., Citizens United and Right2Work

the media who decides what to call these things are the ones who benefit the most if you do not understand that they are infringements

it’s very strange how they act and think as if they’re never going to die … how quickly we forget!

the 10th day of Christmas

Christmas isn’t over yet folks. We’ve got the whole weekend and MONDAY is EPIPHANY. Which would be what a blessing it is to be back in the round. Back on the ground. And running.

okay so these boys want their boys out of jail yesterday and they’re saying this is how you do it, you take a federal building because that’s when fed have to do something about … all the rest of activism is not even a sit in at a university… it’s not forcing anyone’s hand

fucking bubbas behind bars
… trippin balls …
what if they let those boys out of jail

then what about all those boys in jail?

can we spring them too?

please.

what this calls for is that thing where the jury declares a misstrial because The Law itself is unfair… they never use that one! AND iT iS the most important option of all… with this we could change the salary of The Congress instead of leaving iT in their hands. Challenge the Law. how this would look could fill volumes of fiction about stand-downs and court precedents, oh you mean like The Parliament. There is a reason why you study The British when you study politics.

When Might continued to make despite the many crossroads Christianity had made into the wilderness still at the back of their minds they resisted this giving up of might.  The Almighty gave US freedom and we throw it back in his face and say, no we aren’t up to it.  We need watchdogs.

There has to be a great willingness on the part of the politicians to sacrifice the lives of young men. At bottom.

the architect designed buildings in the 70s so that it could be put on lockdown in five seconds and the students couldn’t take over the building so they sat down in the foyer, on the stairs, all around… speaking in favor of the students even when they did actually take over the offices and occupy all the floors of the entire building, even that did not sabotage the records nor confiscate any, no one was calling them thieves or cheats, nothing was done that would compromise the college, they really were just trying to say, it’s all a farce if they’re sending our friends into jungles where people try to kill them?

we’re not letting this farce go on, you can’t sacrifice our friends anymore you beasts! hopefully having the courage to stand with our friends and not with the nation them being our friends and all

friendship is the hardest and most rewarding thing on earth

suffer the children to read about the smite, smote, slain… and the Lord saith: Bad idea kids. Being smote and slaughtered really sucked. Why are they still doing it? Don’t they get the message “Might does not make right.” and look at all this blood, caught redhanded poaching the game in the park.
And all the hoops they have to jump through to wash it off.
The books all parlay the same diplomacy between every line in the entirety of the collection from BC3777 to John writing The Apocalypse, and by a variety of other authors in the time between those two, they believe Moses wrote Genesis, probably about 56 odd Jews altogether who had a way with a feather and a bottle of ink made the cut, then all the gnostic books had to be banned, but fortunately were preserved and found in 1945,

my personal favorite of the new testament is the book of matthew and where he jotted down the sermon that The Lord gave on the mountain pretty much sums it up:

 
MIGHT DOES NOT MAKE RIGHT.

polka dot pinwheel in winter
i must go shovel the driveway outdoors
in the air
it’s like smoking you can feel it going in and coming out
i like it
***
the cold is strangely painful at first
people who have never gone swimming in a cold swimming hole,
after the plunge it is like bathwater … really…
up

the bubbas are taking a stand to free two of their homes and their girls are right there with them cheering them and feeding them, and their girls, truth be told, they wait, they do, they’re waiting, his momma, and his girl and their girls and his grams and his aunts cousins nieces darling baby grand girls …
they’re waiting for the fed to let the two
must-have-done-something-dumb bubbas out of jail …
declare it a misstrial do something…
make them join The National Guard
make all of them join The National Guard
for your punishment you will be fed,
and the Confederates will cooperate
as long as you let the two bubbas go home!

we want to go home and be normal with our bubbas around …
get it now?
going home matters!
Jesus saves those who Learns to their boots that Might don’t make nobody Right Son. Nobody knows it better than The Lord the ALmighty
he don’t bully no one
not ever
not by proxy
not by his will be done
to kingdom come
which is always doing that sentimental shit that makes the girls cry so easy
hate it!
it’s tooooo much!

we can’t handle the truth
we call it drama
only its not
drama is on the screen
not in the heart
in the heart is why drama is so damn interesting when it’s star wars  for example

e.g., 

all the storys are questions

2 Jan

and none of them escape our scrutiny …

a report is a review from a particular point of view
being the reporters
and so they are writing about THIS
and he is making suggestions about how to handle the controversy
without ever speaking at the reason there was a controversy in the first place
because

the point was to consider their options at that point
the idea of opening up a new news outlet
is one that journalists read about with trepidation
there are tremendous risks associated with being on the wrong side of the going thing
and everyone knows it
even the ones who benefit most by it
feel it

 

the easy solution is to call the problem :  enter tain ment
attainment at the point of ENTER

entrance
entrain
entrails

so many N so little time
