BYOB Archive for June, 2008

BYOB – Sunday


BYOB – Thursday…



BYOB – Tuesday… And On…

I don’t know how soon I will be adding the next entry… could be 10 minutes… could be 5 days…
Be careful out there.


BYOB – June 23

Your space, but please, I have noticed an increase in personal sniping and cursing in comments, and it is not welcome or needed. You can be entertaining without being foul-mouthed and hurling f-bombs at everyone else.
And “are you stoned?” and all its variations really should be banned from this blog and all others. This comment has joined Hitler in the category of accusations that go too far to be of value.


BYOB – Get Gu Weekend

What will a 152 minute running time mean to The Dark Knight?



Yes, I know…. barely here this week… it will be like this for a couple of weeks.
Play on…


BYOB – Delayed


BYOB – Another Airplane

Ah, for the travel to end…
But I think it will for a month or two… soon.
Meanwhile, you are left yet again to fend for yourselves for a while…


BYOB Tuesday…


BYOB Monday

Happy Monday… do you feel the quiet? Everyone is tired of talking about who’s losing their job next, who will get along with who in hopeless intermarriages, and the box office for movies no one much cares about. Heck, even the politics are getting quiet, as we are back to a fight between a Republican and a Democrat… sigh…
Here’s a look at New MGM, Same As The Old MGM.
But after that, it’s on you…


BYOB – Weekend

Not the first or last entry of the day… but someplace for y’all to purge before rushing to the cinema to experience Kung Fu Zohan…


BYOB – Thursday

For Andromeda venting or anything else… other than infantile fighting between people who love fighting more than thinking sometimes…


BYOB – Monday

Hello again from New York City, home of Broadway, where I have been catching up with the last wave of shows, finding two remarkable pieces – Passing Strange and The 39 Steps – and one sure-to-be-popular mediocrity with big music and strong performances and little else (In The Heights).
More to come, with a full day ahead… including airplane time. So tend to the flock, try to keep the The Dark Knight drool off the keyboards, try to keep the success and limitations of Sex & The City in perspective, come to peace with Wall-E‘s obvious appeal to kids who don’t go to movies for, and wonder aloud which film will be the sad story of June – The Happening, The Love Guru, Get Smart – or all of the above


Quote Unquotesee all »

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.


One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
~ Donald Trump
