You only get one 58th…

And I had mine yesterday, so I’m pleased to say it was a damn fine day.

It was perfect weather for a long walk over to Lake Monger, with a couple of snack breaks along the way. I covered about eight miles in all, which should account for the lunch and the pizza when I got home.

My festive mood was such that I even indulged in the purchase of some dvds! As you know, I cover the full extent of the cultural spectrum.

Having a birthday in January used to be a non-event. That’s midsummer here, in the middle of the school holidays, and that’s two strikes against a party nine times out of ten.
These days, of course, a January birthday is a whole lot nicer. Look who I share it with!

This one’s just for the locals.

News today that Anthony Mundine wants a rematch. I guess he loves the touch of canvas on the back of his skull.
And Farter Rod of Gosford is planning to run for the Senate.
Let’s put them together in the ring. Last one to stop talking crap wins the match.
With Kevin Rudd as the referee. Obviously no live audience at the venue, those three motormouths will burn all the oxygen between them.

The year ahead in anti-Trump comments.

There’s going to plenty of it, anyway. So let’s start it off with a laugh.

Noam Chomsky: Trump is worse than Hitler!
Rob Reiner: Trump is MUCH worse than Hitler!
Amy (or maybe Chuck) Schumer: Trump is SO much worse than Hitler!
Kathy Griffin: Trump makes Hitler look like a Girl Scout who makes her bed without being told!
Jim Carrey: AaaaarrggaagggaaammmmdnnnnngggggTRUMP!

When the weather matches the mood – and the movie.

Last Friday about 9:30, the rather sluggish breeze suddenly became animated. The dead leaves off the gum tree on the nature strip began rustling like a busload of kids were running through them.

No thunder, lightning, or rain. Just this mad dry whispering. Not something I really needed since I was watching a vampire movie at the time.

But the wind died down as quickly as it began. And I was just settling down again myself, when there was a knock at the door.

It was the neighbour. The wind had picked up the big umbrella in his backyard and dropped it in my backyard. I helped him untangle it from the lemon tree, and went back to the movie after I changed my shorts.

The Mothers Day gifts will be spectacular. I guarantee it.

Granny Kills ‘Tyrant’ Son With Frying Pan, Cuts His Johnson Off With Power Saw – Gets ZERO Jail Time.

With a…. a power saw?

I know, right?

It’s like PSYCHO with the roles reversed.

The Santa Menace – my query answered.

Jedi Jesus versus Darth Santa!

Did you ever see that video where a girl takes her new boyfriend home to meet her folks at Christmas, and her old boyfriend shows up too?
Santa was the old bf. The new bf was Jesus.
That video has disappeared from the internet. But here’s another take on that whole Santa V Jesus thing.

If I’m not back in five minutes, call the Pope!

I liked The Haunting. Strictly daytime viewing, mind you, and even that wasn’t a 100% safe space. Not when they throw moments like this at you.

It was an interesting exercise in how far you can go in adapting a book to the screen and still be considered faithful to the source material. I would say The Haunting crossed the line of faithfulness. It was effective, but there was much that was either entirely new or a serious distortion of the original. Had the scriptwriters pushed themselves a touch harder they could have delivered something altogether new. But then they would have lost the association with a genuine horror classic.

Not all who embark upon literary adaptations are impelled by similar motivations. Sometimes it’s obvious that their mission statement is Let’s slap a few totally unrelated ideas together and go for it!

Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter is to Christianity as Star Wars is to physics, but is certainly entertaining to those of a not-too-respectful perspective. And Phil Caracas probably bears more resemblance to Jesus than either Willem Dafoe or Jeffrey Hunter – or Diogo Morgado or Ewan McGregor.

Body of Christ!

This isn’t Sermon On The Mount Jesus. It’s Kicking Moneychanger Butt Jesus.

He gets beaten up a lot, but he gives as good as he gets. When he’s confronted by atheists, Jesus sets parables aside for pugilism.

Let’s get on with the conversions!

Mary Magnum (no, really) gives Jesus a wardrobe update and then it’s time to go underground.

If I’m not back in five minutes, call the Pope!

And if you think the Lord works in mysterious ways, you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet.

Jesus – I have not abandoned you!

Oh – hi, Dad. What’s your advice?

Call your mother. She misses you.

If you’re tired of Miracle on 34th Street… if you can’t handle the pretentious sophistry of Santa Clause Versus The Martians… make Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter your Christmas Day family movie in 2018. Then go out and buy a bucketload of drumsticks.
