Movies, Life and Stuff

January6

Obviously I am never short on opinions.

But, you – like my clients (and, bored people) and, apparently world leaders and decision-makers alike (but, few others) seem to care. We had 25000 visitors yesterday.

So, keeping lit light – but culturally relevant – today I decided that two movies are important in your lives. Mostly because they are stories about relationships and how people fit into society.

I like Fandango.  The cast is great and the story line has always fascinated me. I have had many of my own “fear and loathing” road trips; grappled with angst; and survived (some times those with me did not).

Facing death by growing up is/ was a transitional point in almost all of our lives.

Me?  I still Fandango.

I also like  The Darjeeling Limited. Owen Wilson is brilliant (But, so, are his cast mates). He might be underrated for his unconscious wit and elegant ability to help us observe the absurd and make us realize it’s normalcy (what the hell does that mean?).

Apparently this movie gives us some insight around streams of consciousness around many Indian (as in Bollywood) movies.

But, I am currently struggling through my relationship with my own brother Greg. So, this movie just hit home – and, reminded me of our extended European trek in 1987.

So… Along an unrelated train (ha!) of thought, why do Americans (How ironic – I should say white settlers) despise Indians so much?

It’s true.  We do.

We really hate them when it comes to Call Centers and Help Desks. But, we seem to have a love-hate relationship with that part of the world. But, we also hated the American Indians when we invaded their lands.

Never mind. Just a thought.

Go listen to “You” by Buckcherry.  But, only because I said so.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
