GOOD RIDDANCE 2016
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"

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!

They've stolen our votes, but NOT our voices.....
