Post Whatever You Are Thinking At This Very Moment

The Truth

about Ruth
I often wonder what happens to bar staff when a pub closes. They never re open with the same staff. There must be a lot of heartache there. People seem to lose their jobs quite regularly in the bar trade. Every job lost is a story waiting to be told. I look at other people losing their jobs and it doesn't register. But where do they go, what do they do, how do they feel?
Lots of people think anyone can work in a bar then they find out that it's not that easy. Or it was never their real job anyway. They do it in between their real jobs.
You need to talk to whatever they call "human resources" where you live. You have a medical problem and they can't fire you for that. They will have to put you on leave and give you time to work it out. This is the best advice you're going to get this week.
 
Speaking of the mother backstory, I love how they went for like the most generic abuse possible with the whole “chained to a radiator” bit. It’s like, really? Lol.

I agree that the Wayne’s were shoehorned in basically to hammer home that this takes place in the Batman Universe guys. I think it’s stupid though that they feel like everything has to always tie back to Bruce somehow. Honestly, I don’t think they even needed the Wayne’s at all. Not even their death. It’s been done tons of times. They basically rehashed Batman 89 and Batman Begins with their murder. Not a fan of that.

I didn’t like the few moments of flashbacks that they did. Showing him in the asylum, showing him see his mother’s therapy session, showing that his neighbor wasn’t really there. It just seemed very hamfisted. Another thing that bothered me was the fact he had two bullets he shouldn’t have had in the gun during the subway murders. He fired 8 shots without reloading and that bugs me a lot.

I thought the movie looked great and was great. Joaquin did an amazing job. I mean, it’s still not the Joker as he should be, but there really has never been a comic accurate Joker in live action anyway so why start now while Willem Dafoe is still alive? *cough*

I loved the dance on the stairs. I paid attention because I figured that would be the only time you saw him go down the stairs and was happy it was. The part at the end where he was on top of the car and painted the smile on in his blood was perfect. You’ll never get a better Joker moment than that. I’m not sure why anyone thinks the ending made it like none of it happened.

Saw Rambo 3 yesterday. I enjoyed it a lot actually. It's not got the narrative or character development stakes the first one or even the second one has and is more cookie cutter but I felt like the humor and one liners were tastefully peppered in and overall made it a very fun watch. We both really liked it. The impalement self-cauterization was tuff.

f***ing amazing how different we were in regard to our attitude toward Afghanis pre 9-11, though. Jesus. That dedication at the end made me LOL.

I love when the kid asks to see his knife and goes "what's this" and Sly says, "it's a knife" and the kid twirls it around and says, "can I have it?" and Sly just goes, "no." For some reason that little exchange made me crack up. That dude has a great subtlety to him the way he delivers and writes dialog.

Rambo 3 feels an awful lot like Rambo 2 in a way. It follows the same formula almost exactly. I can’t stand it for that reason. Also, as I’ve told you before and you pointed out, politically the film didn’t age well at all as Rambo is basically helping al-Qaeda in this movie. I remember one of the original ideas for Rambo 4 was supposed to be the little kid grew up to be a terrorist and Rambo must stop him. Lol.

There is a horror movie I watched once that parodies the cauterization scene. I explained the scene but deleted as I just thought I would show it to you:


Sly’s humor is very hit or miss. It can be hilarious but sometimes it’s really f***ing cheesy. There is a lot of that in the Rocky movies...like Paulie and his robot in Rocky 4. And cutting the pizza with scissors in Cobra. And then there is Over The Top where he solves a custody battle by driving his semi through Robert Loggia’s house and then wins an arm wrestling contest.

When you watch Rambo 4, please, for the love of God watch the extended cut instead. It’s a much better movie and does the character more justice than the theatrical cut.

OK we'll watch the extended version.

I've never seen any Rocky movies, LOL. I just found Cobra on VHS though.

EDIT: I just watched the clip and holy f*** that's awesome

Cute boy and a great name in USA and UK but when swedes name a son Liam I just wanna scream and most here agree that it is a white trash name.

But only in Sweden. I remember when River Phoenix died and white trash families in Sweden started naming their sons River and even in a well known swedish tv series.

I absolutely hate swedish kids with english names.

The other night my phone rang when I was shaving my head. I'm abroad so I didn't bother about it and Maria heard it too but for some reason didn't ask me if she should answer for me.
Looked up the number and at first had no clue whose name it was until I realised it was the mother of an old classmate of mine.
I met him at intensive care in November the day my dad was taken there. His old colleague with whom he had a driving school is dying from skin cancer that spread to the brain.
I met his parents on my 50th birthday when I was away in another town for dinner and his mother wanted my number so I gave it to her. Not a sound from them until now.
The thing is I don't want anything to do with them. All this time I was worried they would call or text but as soon as I had relaxed thinking the danger is over they call me. But the call was only 4 signals and I did call back and they never answered.
Most people won't answer cause my number is hidden so they think that some salesman is calling. I am leaning toward the idea she might have called the wrong number. Maybe they have been wondering what happened to my dad and how it all went cause we had no death notice or anything in the papers.
I just hope I don't have to tell them I don't want any contact but then again I am never returning home, alive anyway.
The father of two daughters now and we came a bit too close at one point when we were young and that feels very awkward now.

I have to admit VH's pictures are poetry. The face is sad yet determined and one eye is seeing through everything where the other holds back. The face has the look of someone stunned by shocking news but keeping it together. Like someone walking up to an old friend at a funeral whose spouse just died not really sure of what to say or do. Then there is a spanish quality to the face too as if you wanna zoom out to see the whole shebang and expect maracas and hectic spanish dancing with a face still looking like it has been carved out of stone.

I found this british grocery store online and thought it would be a good idea to walk there because on the website they said they had battenburg cake. it was realllllllly far away and there were a lot of really big, steep hills, and when I got there they didnt have any battenburg cake! I ended up buying some green apple candies instead, not because I particularly wanted them, but because I hate going into a shop like that and not buying something. plus, the man was really nice. he said he'd have some battenburg cake next week, but I don't know if ill bother going back. took the bus back and some old Chinese guy told me I had a nice watch, which I appreciated: I DO have a nice watch. it made me feel bad because he looked like a nuisance with all his bags and a coffee held precariously in his hand, so that when he switched seats to the one by me I said under-my-breath-but-audibly "oh for f***s sake", cause im a jerk like that. but after he complimented my watch I talked to him and was nice, and it turned out I kinda liked him. then to continue my European food tour I went to this Russian food store downtown and bought some Russian chocolate. it may well be the worst chocolate ive ever had in my life. they had a 'we're hiring' sign on the door and it made me wonder if I should apply, because it occurred to me that I would kind of like to work there, but mayhap they only hire people who can speak Russian. now im going to be like light housework and watch a dateline marathon. have I mentioned how much I LOVE tv?!?!

What a mulitcultural hell hole some of you people live in. I wonder would it be too much to ask for those people to have stayed at home to build up their ruins of a country?
The world is not a bus stop where you can get on and off as much as you like. Imagine the work to repatriate all these useless people and I suggest we kill them where they are instead.
Less toll on the environment with all the flying and what not.
When you can have cantonese food on a Tuesday in Middlesbrough someone has to put an end to it.

On a whole I find spanish culture depressing. There is something sleepy about it despite no one ever sleeping. Abandoned half open windows and you wonder where people are, probably hiding from the heat and sun or work.
Not like they can be happy serving tourists all their lives. I don't like the old houses at all and no one knows when or how they will collapse but collapse they will one day maybe today.
They are either incredibly happy and loving or hostile there really is no inbetween. I wonder where they go on holiday but I don't think they ever do trapped as they are at what some call paradise but to them it is probably hell all year round.
They don't know what a sound proof roof is as sounds from forks and knives seem to be some kind of weird music genre they enjoy. The children are weird and ghost like looking at you with open mouth and eyes dark as wells.
They drive cars but more out of will than skill. Taxis are cheap but so is dying, for the dead corpse anyway. It never makes sense with spicy hot food in hot climates and I never understood that but nor does their skin. Craters on the moon feel challenged by these spanish faces.
But all in all I cannot complain and moan and attack them and their culture. But it feels good to know I am better than everyone of them but for now I'll keep it to myself until they are ready.

I told Maria we won't be living together in future. She wondered if I wanted to move into her Uppsala villa ahead of Christmas but I was brutally honest and said no. She took it well though koreans hardly show anything born as they are with a Björn Borg poker face.
She heads back to Sweden thinking I am gonna do the same a few weeks later. I am gonna drink and snort up what is left and die here.

You should at least give the first Rocky a watch. It’s a classic. The sequels are fun but not essential. I love the Rocky character...I have such an attachment to him. He’s been there since my childhood and it’s been amazing watching his life over the course of 8 films.

I hope there is an extended cut of Rambo 5 because it desperately needs one. It’s a mess but those last 20 minutes are great. I can tell there is a better film there somewhere but incompetent people worked on it. Stallone should have directed it. Rambo 4 is a much better ending to the character than Rambo 5.
