Let’s Play: “Who’s This?” Part II

 

So who is the black guy? Who are the others? I went up to the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck NY a few weeks ago. If you’ve never gone it’s worth the trip. Classes to challenge and enhance your life. I seemingly get there and get dicked around but it’s good for me to take my licks. It also helps me discern the various groups targeting me for team stalking: the local constabulary, the federales, and some guy with a knot on his head who looked like Zippy the Pinhead with his pals. Then there was a group of gals one of whom liked my pushback when I went for a massage and they cancelled my masseuse and sent up Zippy to give me a massage…not happening!!! She went home popped some pills and fantasized about me but that was last visit. This visit still too fresh in my bleeding heart to discuss except that I avoided Lyme Disease (I think), had a horrible case of sciatica, took ungodly amounts of Motrin and these guys showed up Saturday night, blew me away and made it all worthwhile. I held off on posting this until now because I saw British Invasion just before them and this would be too unbelievable. The white guy I ID’ed is Uncle Junior from the Sopranos…more to come on him in a bit. The black guy is “Stevland Hardaway Judkins” or as he’s better known……..Stevie Wonder!!!!

Ed Baruch The band was nothing short of extraordinary. Some may have been in their 80’s, 90’s or more. Some much younger but I’m betting they’re all famous. I’ll go look at some of the big bands and the other’s in the Sopranos because we had Uncle Junior there! See More

Ed Baruch About the music: third time I’m saying it blew me away but this guy Stevie Wonder or whoever sit’s inside of him is a musical genius!! The band was reliant on him for his expertise and had total trust. I never pretend to be a musical genius…I just like the stuff…but he was speaking a different language Like there was a way to create music that had never been heard or tried before like he was continuously experimenting with the stuff and coming up with new and original notes or chords or beats or whatever I have no clue. The band seemed to understand him and they did kind of a combination of jazz, blues, rock and then some more jazz. It was like my ears and mind had just woken up. I’ll dig up the name of the band in my catalogue. I’m going to see if I recognize anyone else, sadly I lost my glasses on day #1. Oh thanks to Paige who when I scheduled my trip looked appalled and somehow got me to go a week early despite no reservations. The staff at Omega managed to find a place for me for a few nights and that was really cool!

Ed Baruch Last point about Zippy…they went to ask him about me and the Team Stalking. He told them, “Oh, that guy was crazy!” The person making the inquiry replied, “We don’t think so.” He enjoyed my cover letter so much (it was brilliant) that he framed it…that was really cool!

Movie Review: The Dark Tower
(See previous post for a review of the theater)

I can’t sugar coat this one, I liked the film but not the strongest effort out of Hollywood. The Tomatometer came up at 18%…not too good and the Audience Score was a tepid 63%.

What I liked about the film…1) Jake Chambers who played the kid role…Tom Taylor! My issue is that if the kid is not compelling in an action movie the movie sinks to the bottom. The kid in Terminator 2… Edward Furlong was perfect in his role… enough serious and enough smart alec… great choice! The kid in Last Action Hero… Austin O’Brien… not so much. I hate complaining about a film with Arnold in it but Rotten Tomatoes bears me out on my assessments of the film. It may not have been the kids fault and he may have done great things since then but…that’s all I have to say about that. 2) Idris Elba who played Roland the gunslinger was terrific too. 3) The handgun was really cool and some of the fight scenes as well.

What I didn’t like about the film… 1) Matthew McConaughey… I can’t spell his last name and he was really kind of stiff in the role, I didn’t read the book/s and perhaps this was perfectly laid out but I think the film could have used somebody a bit off kilter, maybe that was what was missing from the film… needed a bit more jokerish or more disturbed; I hate how dark the film, it may be that the theater keeps the light down low on the bulb to save money, I hate 3D for the same reason…too dark… if they can pretend to fly planes into the trade centers and nuke the buildings from 70 meters below ground to take them down with a cylindrical thrust of energy at a million degrees and convince everybody to walk through the nuclear fallout for months because it was safe… even The Donald walked through and was not aware what it was but managed to squeezed the person responsible for 911 for 10 Rocks after I informed him that the buildings were nuked and he walked through the fallout of 4th or 5th generation nukes… with his wife!!! then why can’t they make 3D glasses that don’t have darkened lenses.

Spoiler Altert:

John (Jake) Taylor is Billy Mumy’s son…for anyone paying attention.

Other than that…

 

Movie Theater review:

One of the worst experiences in movie going ever!!! I believe the Carmike in Voorhees in now under new management and is an AMC. I’m sure they’ll get their feet on the ground but not now. They’ll probably put in those great seats like in Marlton 8 AMC eventually but not now. The seats were cheap about 6 bucks each. I brought my wife and sister so it was about twelve bucks….hahaha old joke I learned in West Va. We walked into the theater…it was a disgusting mess. It had not been cleaned from the previous show/s. Crap in the cup holders. It was overly humid and smelled like mildew. I started to cough. Why didn’t we leave? I wanted to see the film…The Dark Tower! After the film I went out to let the people know how dreadful the theater was…Ok so what could go wrong now? Thugs!!! Five of them!!! Just hanging out…movie theater staff!! One guy had a security T-shirt on, the others wore black and hung around him like they were ducklings and he was Conrad Lorenz. None of them were rushing into the theater to clean but security was really tight in case the Voorhees Marauders showed after a screening of Crush Groove. I opted out of complaining. I’ve seen these things go bad before and didn’t want a repeat of having to explain to the local constabulary why these guys were laid out.

I’ll summarize my experience with this historical quote, “Other than that how did you enjoy the play…Mary Todd?
