Screengrab above of Kirsten Dunst in ELIZABETHTOWN.
I LOVE YOU CLAIRE COLBURN, PLEASE RUN AWAY WITH ME!.....
"LIFE IS STRANGER THAN FICTION"..... That quote may be a cliché, but it's still one hundred percent true! If you haven't learned that from everything that has happened in the past two years, then you never will.
Anyway, I never saw the movie ELIZABETHTOWN when it was released in theaters. However, I did watch it in early January on THIS TV ( in WIDEscreen! ).
Drew Baylor ( Orlando Bloom ) works for the shoe division of a big company. He just lost his employer - Alec Baldwin - one BILLION dollars by releasing a product that flopped on the market. He gets fired, minutes later he gets dumped by his superficial girlfriend / coworker ( Jessica Biel ).
When Drew arrives at his apartment, he tries to kill himself but is interrupted by a phone call from his sister. She tells him their father has died. So he hops on a plane to Kentucky.
Screengrabs above are from the movie ELIZABETHTOWN.
A stewardess named Claire Colburn ( Kirsten Dunst ) takes a liking to Drew. They talk endlessly during the flight. She also draws him a map to Elizabethtown and includes her phone number.
Claire is smart, kind, unrestrained, and naturally beautiful. She changes Drew's attitude. Claire comes into Drew's life exactly when he needs her the most.
The type of individual Ms. Dunst portrays, does exist, but they are extremely rare these days - to the point of seeming more like fantasy than reality. During the sixties and seventies, there seemed to be a lot of 'free spirits', or maybe they were just on drugs... ha-ha-ha.
All I know, is that this movie took me to a great place in my mind, and made me feel good, really good. It was like medicine to me.
It was written and directed by Cameron Crowe . It stars Kirsten Dunst, Orlando Bloom, and many other familiar faces - including Susan Sarandon ( but don't hold that against the movie.... lol ).
ELIZABETHTOWN was released on region one DVD by PARAMOUNT.
Warning, PARAMOUNT released ELIZABETHTOWN in two editions. One contains the WIDEscreen version, the other is FULLscreen only!.... Make sure you READ the DVD cover ( front and back! ).
Screengrab above from the CNN website.
PRINCESS LEA AND KATHY SELDEN ARE SINGING IN THE RAIN.....
OK, so I've never been obsessed with STAR WARS, or STAR TREK, or STAR GATE, or STAR JONES for that matter. But, I was still kinda-sorta shocked to hear about Carrie Fisher's death, followed by her mother's death the very next day.
One of my favorite magicians / writers / actors, Penn Jillette, wrote something in remembrance of her. It was posted on the CNN website.
QUOTES BELOW ARE BY PENN JILLETTE ( from December 28, 2016 - CNN website ) .....
"I met Carrie Fisher in 1990. The crazy freedom fighter and pornographer, Al Goldstein, had invited me as his date to the Adult Video Awards -- the porn awards. They were held in Santa Monica in a circus tent. Al and I were led to a table with Buck Henry and Buck's date, Carrie Fisher. I was star struck"
"We were in porn public. I reached up under Nina's shirt, checked out the surgery, and praised Nina's after-market rack"
"Before Nina even left our table, Carrie said the first words she would ever say to me. "Penn, would you like to feel my breasts? I've been in legitimate features."

I saw Barack Obama's farewell address last night. So, I need to vent about NAZI-TRUMP one last time.....
Think about all the decent human beings that have died last year, and I'm NOT referring to all the celebrities. I'm talking about people like you, and your family and friends. Meanwhile, the VILE-ABOMINATION that is NAZI-TRUMP, continues to exist! May he drop dead as soon as possible.
Anyway... soon, the second season of the THE NAZI-TRUMP show will begin... The second season is called, DEPLORABLE DONALD DOES D.C.
It's the second most horrifying reality show currently in existence ( the most horrifying being the Syrian civil war ).
The upcoming season is going to focus on his zany adventures as THE MOST POWERFUL PERSON ON EARTH, and if that doesn't scare you, then you're already dead.
During November and December, I made the mistake of posting my feelings about this fiasco of an election, on six or seven websites. All those websites had several things in common. They all bash Hilary Clinton ( they portray HER as the EVIL one in this election ).
They also accuse her of being the same as NAZI-TRUMP ( whom they never bash ). Which is COMPLETELY INSANE!
It's a ridiculous mentality. It's what Bill Maher called "false equivalency" ( and NO, I do NOT agree with Mr. Maher on everything ).
Let me state the obvious, those fucking trolls DON'T know what the fuck they're talking about!
Is Hilary Clinton a saint?... Of course not!... NONE OF US ARE! But, she's NOT the devil that the rightwingers have portrayed her to be, for OVER TWENTY FUCKING YEARS! More importantly, she's nothing like PSYCHO-TRUMP!... And yet, you have these MINDLESS TROLLS compare her to a LUNATIC like NAZI-TRUMP.
He's MENTALLY UNSTABLE
He's PRO-NUCLEAR WAR
He's a BLATANT BIGOT with ties to HATE GROUPS
He's a BLATANT MISOGYNIST
He LIKES EM' YOUNG, REAL YOUNG
He's got the "hots" for his own daughter
He's a DRAFT DODGER
He's a TAX DODGER
He's a COMPULSIVE LIAR
He's got an OBSESSIVE-INFANTILE-MENTALITY
He's downright DELUSIONAL... And far too many other things to list.
Just for the record, millennials were NOT the only folks doing the "false equivalency" thing. I think portraying ALL millennials as retards is WRONG. The same way you shouldn't portray all baby-boomers, or the gen-X crowd as smart. There are plenty of MORONS in ALL generations.
Anyway, back to those websites. Those arrogant and condescending, KNOW-IT-ALL-TROLLS think they know more about the law than FBI director Comey. They all still call Clinton's emails illegal, even though NO charges were ever filed! Why?... Because FBI director Comey CLEARED her! As I said before, I guess the TROLLS know more about the law than the FBI director ( who ended-up eating his words, not once, but TWICE! ).
But, try telling that to the TROLLS. It's like arguing with a bunch of five year olds - you're never going to win the argument.
Those DELUSIONAL-ASS-TARDS also think they're more informed and qualified, than the real journalists at the WASHINGTON POST, the NEW YORK TIMES, and PBS.
A reminder, there was NOTHING normal about this election, or the past two years.
NAZI-TRUMP is the reason BIGOTRY and TRUE MISOGYNY are now considered VIRTUES by far too many individuals in our country. You can NOT reason with, or change, his RABID-MINDLESS-FOLLOWERS. However, you can GIVE THEM A TASTE OF THEIR OWN MEDICINE!... "Fight fire with fire", because that's the only thing DEPLORABLES understand.
Screengrabs above show, Bill Maher in an episode of MARRIED WITH CHILDREN ( YOU CAN'T MISS - season 7 episode 17 ).... Bud has got the right idea.
NAZI-TRUMP, everyone in the G.O.P. that STOOD BY HIM, Mitch McConnell, Rudy GHOUL-i-ani, Newt Gingrich, Kellyanne Conway, Paul Ryan, FBI director Comey, Julian Assange, Ann-the-CORPSE-Coulter, and all the DELUSIONAL-DEPLORABLES in his JUNTA, will all eventually get what's coming to them.
And last-but-not-least, the INSANE members of the ELECTORAL COLLEGE that STOLE the people's votes, and put NAZI-TRUMP in power. They went against the wishes of the American people, and they need to be held accountable! I hope their names and private information are put on the internet for all to see. Pay-back-is-a-bitch and so are your mothers!
I'm only one person, but I'm NOT going to let that stop me from fighting back in any way I can.
I love my country, and I do NOT want to see it crumble to dust.....

Well, I couldn't wait till December... I'm feeling too 'wound-up' to stay quiet. So, I'm going to write my last post of 2016 now. I'm not sure at this point, if I will return.
LAND OF THE GIANTS.....
There was a time when imagination and originality in movies and tv shows were the rule, not the exception. Yes, remakes and sequels existed, but they were not as common as they are now.
When I was young, I remember watching a tv show called LAND OF THE GIANTS. I was instantly transported to their world every week, and I was more than happy to do so.
In late 2016, episodes started airing on ME TV.
The complete series was released on region one DVD by FOX. As I write this, it's out-of-print and selling for obscene prices.
I think there may have been some mass market paperbacks, but I'm not positive.
At least three model kits were released. The SNAKE kit was released by AURORA, and later reissued by POLAR LIGHTS. A small scale kit of the SPINDRIFT was released by MOEBIUS MODELS, and a bigger kit by POLAR LIGHTS.
Screengrabs from an episode of the BIG BANG THEORY ( November 2016 ).
SOME GUYS HAVE ALL THE LUCK.....
I needed some escapism and got it from this episode of the BIG BANG THEROY.
Kaley Cuoco's character gives Johnny Galecki's character a good spanking... A lucky man indeed.
Screengrab above is from Atom Egoyan's movie called EXOTICA...
I love the sight of Mia Kirshner's character dancing to Leonard Cohen's song EVERYBODY KNOWS. She does this in a movie called EXOTICA.
EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED.....
They've changed things forever, and we will NOT forgive or forget what they've done to us.
QUOTES BELOW BY JOHN OLIVER ( NOV. 13, 2016 ).....
"It is going to be too easy for things to start feeling normal. Especially if you are someone who is not directly impacted by his actions. So, keep reminding yourself, this is not normal. Write it on a post-it-note and stick it on your refrigerator, hire a skywriter once a month, tattoo it on your arse, because a KLAN BACKED MISOGYNIST INTERNET TROLL is going to be delivering the next state of the union address and that is NOT normal. It is FUCKED UP!... And the only thing that gives me one degree of comfort, is that I think part of trump might be realizing that now too"
CLICK LINK BELOW FOR JOHN OLIVER's GOODBYE TO 2016.....
John Oliver's last episode for 2016 ( YOUTUBE )
Being a BIGOT is now socially acceptable. There is NO justification for allowing that ABOMINATION to take office.
Abraham Lincoln is spinning in his grave. And Edward R. Murrow is also spinning in his grave. Why?... Because with few exceptions, journalism is now DEAD in our country and most of the world.
We need to KEEP FIGHTING!
"The future hasn't been written yet"
They've stolen our votes, but NOT our voices.....

"Be careful what you wish for".....
A fascist will soon be in charge of the United States.
With any luck he'll be eliminated, or drop dead, or get impeached, or the remaining democrats, independents and sane republicans, will make his time in office a living hell.
Everyone that wasted their vote, or voted for him, has blood on their hands. Your actions will come back to haunt you.
To all the "whiny little bitches" that think we're going back to the so-called "good old days", you're in for a rude awakening.
PUTIN'S BITCH did NOT win by a landslide ( it was a very slim lead ).
How many votes did NAZI TRUMP buy?.... He was correct, "THE SYSTEM IS RIGGED", and he's living proof of it.
UPDATED ON NOVEMBER 10, 2016.....
Our votes were STOLEN! The true winner was Clinton! She WON the popular vote!... NOT HITLER JR.!
What the hell is the point of the public voting for president, if the votes are voided by a handful of INSANE ASSHOLES?!.... The ELECTORAL COLLEGE has NO legitimate reason to still exist!
I'll be back in December, maybe.....
