    So sick of super hero movies and people talking about them.

    Thank you to whoever did NOT put one of their faces on Gal Gadot.  That would have been hard to un-see.

    Strange Bedfellows:  When Jonah finally realizes that Trump actually agreed with him on things Jonah claimed to believe/support, up until 2016.

    JPod apparently forgets about common/typical Democrat projection.  They routinely accuse us of what they are actually doing.  Which means that there was cheating going on in Georgia in 2018 but it was Democrat cheating, it was just insufficient to get Stacey Abrams falsely elected.  By 2020 they’d improved the operation to where Trump lost the state, and the two Republican senators lost in the run-off.

    Remember that everyone from Krypton would be “Superman” on Earth.  So, what if Krypton’s “Kramer” (from Seinfeld) came to Earth instead of Kal-El?  I suppose that’s already been done, but I’d rather imagine my own version.  :-)

    And there’s also this semi-example:

    The two Republican senators lost in the run off because stupid Trump voters stayed home!

    Wow Rob, don’t let your sponsor find out that you’re telling people Martini Shot is only about 4 minutes, which means they don’t get to your sponsor ad reads.

    I love J-pod’s utterly random ad reads.

    Hollywood doesn’t make movies with a real God because no one can follow George Burns.

    Four hours of comic book (those cheap magazines Santa left in my stocking when I was a kid) characters defying the laws of physics? No thanks.

    Four hours of Gone With the Wind? Sure, especially since it included an intermission.

    Part of the fun of seeing a long show, be it a play, an opera, or a classical concert, is having some time to stretch one’s legs, have a drink in the bar, discuss Part 1 with your date or a stranger. A kabuki performance may take up 5 hours of your day, but it includes a long bento break.

    The 10 hour Holocaust documentary Shoah, though, was a test of my stamina. It was divided into halves shown on Friday and Saturday. And the second half was not better than the first.

    Wow.  I can read and understand those words, but my mind cannot completely come to grips with even the possibility of a “10 hour Holocaust documentary.”  That would make a great double-bill with The Sorrow and the Pity.  And I thought I was a stout fellow for surviving a triple-bill of Hour of the Wolf, Shame, and Persona with only chronic depression (but a decent command of Swedish).  Hat’s off to you!

    You know of course he was a mild mannered reporter for a great Metropolitan newspaper?

    I am not. Realize that there are many of me. I am legion.
