"ARGO" (2012) Review

Ben Affleck must be at a lucky point in his career. After his third directorial effort was released in theaters, it not only became a commercial and critical hit . . . like his two previous films, it also became a Best Picture Oscar winner. And he never struck me as the type who would direct and star in a film about the CIA rescuing American diplomats from the Middle East, let alone co-produce it. But he did and the result is the movie, "ARGO". Read more... )

"The Robot Restaurant" in Tokyo is probably the craziest restaurant in the entire world

Warning: the restaurant's own website could send you into epileptic convulsions. Even so, now I want to find the most staid, conservative, hidebound cookie-cutter suburb in southern California, buy a lot there . . . and build this on it.

"THE BIG COUNTRY" (1958) Review

William Wyler and Gregory Peck first worked together in the 1953 comedy classic, "ROMAN HOLIDAY". The director and the actor became close friends and spent a few years trying to find the right property for which they could co-produce and work on together. Peck finally came across a magazine story, which eventually transformed to the movie screen as 1958's "THE BIG COUNTRY". Read more... )

With one more season of "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT" left with David Suchet as the famous literary Belgian detective, I thought it would be nice to rank some of the series' feature-length movies that aired between 1989 and 2010. I have divided this ranking into two lists - my top five favorite movies and my five least favorite movies: Read more... )

For those of you who don't understand how MMO's or roleplaying on Tumblr works, this will seem convoluted.

An RP group on the Warcraft server where I have most of my characters, Wyrmrest Accord, roleplays being a group that runs a hospice in Silvermoon City. As with a lot of WoW roleplay groups these days, their roleplay carries over onto Tumblr.

Yesterday, they made one hell of a post. It was a fictional report of an autopsy carried out on a corpse, in great detail. I won't go into the gruesome details. Suffice it to say it was more or less completely burned, with most of the head missing.

At the end was a photo, which appeared to be a photo from life of a similarly burned corpse.

My feelings have progressed from simply mild shock to a certain measure of anger and a feeling that they crossed some sort of line. No, I haven't reported the post to Tumblr management or even checked if it does break the ToS or AUP; in the end, I just put the account on block, which is a kind of ignore function.

I'm not even sure if my anger is simply because I was shocked and very squicked, or if it's legitimate. I suppose the one really morally questionable thing about the post might be the photo. Someone died a terrible death and left a corpse that cannot possibly be shown to any loved ones he may have left behind, and will require a closed-casket burial. They didn't die so roleplayers on WoW could display that photo as part of their play.

I'm not sure if I should be angry and offended about that or not. Am I too sensitive? Am I being silly? Or do I have every reason to be morally outraged and I should have reported it? Or what? Right now, I'm confused as hell.

All this, and the kittens, too . . . my neighbor caught the remaining kittens, and took the one kitten off my hands last night. But with seemingly every shelter swamped with kittens, their long-term prospects are bleak.

******LONG BEACH, CA AREA******

EDIT: good news: the neighbor brought the kittens to the local SPCA, which turned out not to be overcrowded (amazingly). The kittens were friendly and reasonably healthy other than being half-starved, and they're 12 weeks old, not 8. They'll be up for adoption in a few days.

Sweet Bast, that's a relief.



If anyone knows of a cat rescue accepting kittens, please let me know -- someone has dumped a litter of kittens in my trailer park and they are about 8 - 9 weeks old.

One is currently in my trailer while the neighbor who caught her is at work. She's affectionate, healthy, but skin and bones. Mom is nowhere in sight.

I can't keep her; I have three adult tomcats who will want to kill her or drive her away.

I've contacted multiple cat-rescue organizations, but it's kitten season and everyone is full. This is time-sensitive as the kittens are without Mom, and need proper love and care.

Please contact if you have any information or are able to help!
