SCRIPT FOR “LIFE OF PI” IS WONDERFUL; IMPRESSIVE IS THE TESTIMONY BY THE SCREENWRITER ABOUT IT

“I’m not the kind of person who really likes to be looked at all the time. I was not naturally an actor…I am naturally a hermit who sits in his room and types all day,” he said. I understand that and share in that perspective: such are the words from writer David Magee who adapted […]

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012 AND THE ENGINE OF TIME

My Christmas and New Year season has been largely devoted to reading as much as possible about the antiquated and quite destructed cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, Italy, as also the surrounding areas that included other equally destroyed settlements (Stabiae, Opiontis, Boscoreale with additional architectural remains and explorations found in the neighboring area at Boscocetrasae, […]

FINALLY: BILL AYERS’ EGO EXPLODES

Bill Ayers really wants you to record his misinformation, his handy-dandy doofus crazy-clown creepiness. Or, think this first: never pick-up a venomous snake, regardless of how short it is. Expand that caution: never pick-up venomous snakes regardless if they are short or tall. …Ayers declared to the National Journal reporter, “Yes, I wrote ‘Dreams from […]

THE POINT OF ABSENCE:

…So through my cold lucidity of heart I thought to send you careful rules of song, But gulls ensnare me here; the sun fades; thought By thought the tide heaves, bobbing my words’ damp wings; Mind is the moon-wave roiling on ripples now. Sun on the bone-hulled galleons of those gulls Charms my immense irrelevance […]

WHAT OBAMA’S BEEN DOIN’ DURING THE OIL SPILL – INCLUDING A WANKERFEST WITH PAUL McCARTNEY

“Obama during oil spill — golf, parties, photo-ops… and more golf! (photos)” from PolitiPage.com. Oh, and let’s not overlook last night’s party in the White House, the one in which Paul McCartney tapped on in, insulted the U.S. Presidency (implying President Bush didn’t use “a library” or otherwise, didn’t read — while instead lauding Barack […]

“THIS IS WORK GEORGE WASHINGTON WOULD HAVE APPROVED OF…”

Many thanks to ATLAS SHRUGS for posting this portion of Newt Gingrich’s awesome, entirely awesome speech at David Horowitz’s Restoration Weekend in Palm Beach, FL on November 21, 2009. To view the speech in it’s entirety (Parts I through V), go here. What reservations and criticisms were aimed (accurately, appropriately) at Newt Gingrich over his […]

“THE LAST CENTURION”

Reading an online publish of THE LAST CENTURION by author, John Ringo. I’ll buy a copy of the book but for tonight, reading it online. Suggest others do so, too. Caution: not PG-language, should that sort of thing bother anyone. But the fascinating story and blunt, harsh-talk is set in a very credible, possible near-future […]

Onebeeo: “WE’RE DOOMED!”

P1BO We’re doomed!” I think something is melting…this is all your fault! Don’t call me a mindless philosopher… That’s funny. The damage doesn’t look as bad from out here. Are you sure this thing is safe? What a foresaken place this is. We seem to be made to suffer. It’s our lot in life. I’ve […]

I THREW AWAY THE TWO GRISHAM NOVELS I OWNED

John Grisham’s a glib man and crafty writer, but I threw away the two hardbound editions written by Grisham that I had on my shelf. Somewhere in a giant landfill lie the decomposing tomes. This isn’t why: From a recent news article, John Grisham lives la dolca vita: Grisham isn’t sure who will pick up […]

“ASSUME YOU ARE SURROUNDED BY TRAITORS AND LIARS AND SPIES…”

Author Pete Earley has written an excellent, insightful review of sorts at one of my favored websites, crimelibrary.com, of the film, THE GOOD SHEPHARD. The film is a captivating view experience written for the screen by Eric Roth, that tells a fictionalized tale related (somewhat) to actual characters and historic events. Reading what Pete Earley […]
