Zoo-Or-Path-A-Logical?

My flash reaction to the day before release t.v. previews:

James Patterson’s “Zoo’ looks to have a life span of 3 weeks at best.

And, I’m in my optimist mode.

And why is it that all they have to hype this with is the name of the author?

Willful suspension of disbelief my ass, and I’m not talking about some wild killer equine version.

Want to see a little more of what I’ve been writing about lately?

Go Greek? Just Roll Over…

So those poor billionaire Hedge Fund Money Managers of the world are freaking out because of the hemorrhaging Greek economy’s impending doom for the Euro and the European Community, which are creations of the banks, by the banks, and for the banks and now is perhaps going αντίο?

hedge hogs

Should we start a Kickstarter campaign to purchase a plentiful supply of KY Jelly for each and every one of them, or just let them go bareback and find out what the 99.999% (a.k.a. the rest of the world) has been going through?

How Do You Say Ironic In Urdu?

Thousands of people have died due to a powerful heat wave in Pakistan, their bodies are being stored in a refrigerated room in a morgue prior to burial.

rackem up

Why yes, people are dying to get in here.

What’s ironic is had those same people been allowed to stay in that same refrigerated room while they were still alive, then they probably still would be alive.

Mah Fellah Muricans…

   To the residents of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia and various other knuckle draggers. 

   The Civil War ended over 150 years ago last month, you lost, get over it.

   Those of us who live in the rest of the United States of America would like to welcome you to the 21st century, but if that’s too much of a jump for you to make all at once, at least try and get accustomed to the 20th century for starts, and then slowly work yourself into the present day. 

   You’re welcome.

I Too Had A Dream

I had a dream last night, a dream that I won it big time in the lottery and only moments later received a conference call from all of my sisters.

In this dream, they asked how much money I was going to give to my nieces and nephews.

I answered “$5 million”, and the conversation came to a screeching stop.

I paused for a few moments for dramatic effect and then said:

“That’s $5 million for each and every time they’ve called me just to say hello and see how I was doing”.

Crickets I tell you, nothing but crickets!

The Man Who Pawned America?

Jimmy Lee, the man at J. P. Morgan responsible for developing the “Leveraged Loan Market” that almost tanked the economy here in the U.S. and around the world, and perhaps rigged the I.P.O. for twitter has died at the age of 62.

Jimmy Lee, we hardly knew ye (as you planned)

Jimmy Lee, (as planned) we hardly knew ye. Please note the  paperwork label

The coroner took a very long time doing the autopsy, he spent several hours just going over the forms looking for a box to check that would denote “Karma” as the cause of death.

Someone’s Gotta Say It, So WTF….

I saw “Jurassic World” yesterday, and I can now precisely identify the loss of a little over two hours out of my life that I’m sure I’ll never get back again.

conflict

Horny? I’ll show you horny!!!

The most interesting aspect of the film for me was a visual hint as to what Ron “Opie” Howard would look like if he had breasts and long (actually, any) hair, perhaps his daughter Bryce Dallas Howard was an inspiration to Bruce Jenner to jump the fence? I suppose we’ll never know the answer to that but after she loses a portion of her clothing she’s a lot more entertaining to watch as she bounces around the set, emoting as she goes.

Bryce has a pair

Hey Pa, Barney’s looking at me kinda funny again!

Anyway, the film is an extraordinarily financially successful exhibition of how little you need to have a story, especially a story about human interaction, if you’re able to endlessly fill the screen with CGI and animatronics to the point where after a scene is over you’re still too busy processing what you just saw to realize that there was no “there” there. 

Unlikely hero

Spoiler Alert     —>     Did You Spot The Unlikely Hero Yet?

Me? I’m still busy trying to figure out who green-lit Colin Trevorrow to direct this, and who o.k.ed the casting of those two could just as well be animatronic kids who basically deaden every scene they’re in by “acting” instead of being in the moment, to understand this, re-watch  the first Jurassic Park and have a look at what those kids did. 

dumber and dumber

Exhibit “A”, your honor
