Not So Polite Dinner Conversation- and here were are, 2020

here we are in the eve before starting 2020.  When I was growing up, and we had all of that end times nonsense in the 70s, (oooh the Late Great Planet Earth by that twit Hal Lindsey) I was sure I was going to be the anti-christ in the year 2000 since I was sure that I was screwed up since my prayers weren’t answered and I had questions about the whole of Presbyterian Christianity.  When your religion tries the nonsense of a “chosen” people, then anyone who isn’t selfish wonders what is up with that.

Of course, that nonsense in 1999 was just as silly and the mother-in-law of my brother, a looney pastor,(the MIL, not my brother) was sure the end of the world was coming.  I wonder if she still has bass (the fish) in her swimming pool for the “tribulation”.  I was watching a show on the Y2K bug and it was just silly but we were indeed nervous about what could happen. I did show that my spouse was a great IT guy since he figured out how to fix it for his employer.  Whodathunk an English Lit major would be able to make computers obey? 🙂

Thanks to all of my internet friends, my followers and everyone else who has made this last year fun.  I’ve had a great time doing art, tending more cats than I intended and cooking interesting things.

I wish all of you the best of things.   Not that my wishes mean much.  Mostly, I hope that humanity gets its act together and tosses out ever piece of vermin like Trump and his fellow hatemongers.

oh and you need to watch Iron Sky: The Coming Race, if only to see Hitler on a Tyrannosaurus Rex getting squished.  The first movie and this, the sequel are great as classic B-Movies.


What the Boss Likes – Iron Sky Review

Space Nazis!

Find a way to see Iron Sky.  Yes, you want to; you really really want to.  Do what Vel says.  But fair warning, it is not politically correct at all in the best way possible.  If you are offended by “tea party” icons and ideals vigorously ridiculed, it’s my guess you’ll have a lot of trouble with this movie.   

This movie isn’t quite what I thought it was going to be when I first blogged about it.  It’s better.  The cgi is phenomenal, and damn near miraculous looking for a low-budget production and the story is funny, vicious and cynical.  Hopefully without giving too much away by just saying this, I have to say that this is on par with a movie I very much love: Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.

SPOILERS and such below the jump. You have been warned. Continue reading “What the Boss Likes – Iron Sky Review”
