The title of this doesn’t have anything to do with anything. It just popped into my head. So be it.
I’ve been unusually quiet, I know. A combination of a) not being able to think of anything fun about which to rant mixed with a little bit of acceptance. (Where did THAT come from??)
There’s no point in being political at this stage; I’m sick to death of politics and really don’t give a rats ass who gets elected,
Gramps or Mortimer Snerd. Neither one of them speaks for me. And as for my NJ “Representatives”, Frank Lautenberg and Rush Holt, they need to be voted out and sentenced to a life of collecting garbage along Route 80 for the rest of their days. That way they’d get to perform some REAL public service, instead of what they do now…which is diddly-squat.
So much for not ranting about politics.
On to other things. Watched two movies this weekend: the new Indiana Jones (eh) and The Bank Job (excellent). I think those are the first new movies I’ve seen since Juno was released on DVD. I used to watch movies all the time…in fact in a former life I was a “film critic” for two radio stations and a newspaper. I put the title in quotes because the job is similar to being a radio dj (something else I’ve done). It really doesn’t take any qualifications to do either job. I’ve been lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time with the right idea. Going to two movies a week and getting paid for it was pretty kewl, tho. Let’s see…this was 1985 through 1991…so without doing the math, that’s a shitload of movies.
Well I must be off. The band has a gig this afternoon and I need to pack and run….
