“The greatest pleasure I know is to do a good action by stealth and have it found out by accident.” ― Charles Lamb
Smart money's still on God's Chosen People.
I watched Glengarry Glen Ross the other night - I was pleasantly surprised - I enjoyed it. That is a well written, well acted movie. I like David Mamet's take on high pressure slimy sales techniques - he wrote dialogue that seemed realistic to me - it reminded me of the guys in sales I used to work with.But what I liked most was the way the plot hinged on just two words - spoiler alert - when Jack Lemmon's character says "make up" when he is verbally abusing Kevin Spacey's character, the jig is up. That's good writing right there.I thought Jack Lemmon looked like hell in this movie, so I checked his bio - turns out he was my age when he filmed it. Hmm...I am starting to get the impression that working in movies is not a healthy life style.
I watched Glengarry several years ago. The consummate ensemble-cast movie.
It's not just Obummer. It irks the International Jew Hating Community no end that Jews finally have a piece of earth to call their own. Two of those countries on the Security Council are democracies that allegedly have excellent relations with Israel. But both Spain and New Zealand voted for the make East Jerusalem judenrein declaration. Think of it. The world, aka the International Jew Hating Community, can't stand it that the Jews live in and control Jerusalem! Shocking? Not to a Jew with half-a-brain. But so many Jews are putzes, just like everyone else, that they can't get over it that those two sweetiepies, Spain and New Zealand, voted for a declaration guaranteed to incite one more intifada. Hey, I'm writing this for myself. Why should goyim give a tinker's dam? They shouldn't and won't. The only consolation for a Jew is that now there is a territory to defend and an arsenal of hundreds of nuclear weapons to defend it with. Let the fucking world make declarations without end. Tant pis on it.
Time travel - It's important to tuck and roll.
I like what the cast members called it, based on what was considered strong language back in those days, "Death of a Fucking Salesman".
Cool, Sixty hadn't heard that.April, don't forget keep your mouth open.
My computer is in the shop - too much dust and cat hair clogged up the fan. I am typing this on my phone - what a royal pain. The good news is I can now find productive things to do. And there was much rejoicing in the world o' blogs.
(1) Whatever his shortcomings, Barack Obama seems to me to be a person of dispassionate temperament.(2) I thought Glengarry Glen Ross was a pretty good movie.
He is a petulant twit of the first water. Talk about thin skinned. He is much more thin skinned then even the really thin skinned Donald Trump. What a joke.
I watched the "Titanic" pilot episode of "Time Tunnel" last night. Good stuff.
