Half A Week Motes

Another MSM Non-story: Reports from Samoa are stating that at least 50 children, and several adults, have died from “Measles”. With a population of around 200K , the island government has decreed everyone be vaccinated. The vaccine, which had been around since the 1960”s, is reported to be safe and the world deaths from measles has dropped 84% since its use became common.

Big Hollywood question: Everybody seems to have a different answer on who should direct the next Star War’s movie. My answer, no one. There shouldn’t be any more SW movies.It’s played out.

Love Line? : Happens all the time. A pregnant woman undergoing a “routine” medical exam is claiming she had a “leg shaking orgasm” during the pelvic exam. In her defense, she says since being pregnant she has found her “nether regions” to be overly sensitive and she is easily aroused. But such an intense orgasm has left her unable to “look her obstetrician” in the eye. Hey, it’s happened to everyone.

Headlines the editor didn’t read : As it appeared in “Yahoo News”, “Muslim woman wears only hijab at National Dog show as she introduces new breed”. No, she was not just wearing a hajib, she was the only one wearing a hijab. I’m not sure if this was a calculated mis-headline, or the editors are just too dumb to read their own headlines.

My response: I guess the new “age put down” is “Okay, Boomer”. Well, “It’s all Cool Milli”. If I got to explain it, I missed.

Couldn’t Agree More:
Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas is you.” Is deemed the most annoying Christmas song. Other songs mentioned were “Do they know it’s Christmas?”, “Baby, it’s cold outside”, and of course the Jackson 5 “Santa Claus is coming to town”. My personal favorite, Bing Crosby and David Bowie “Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy.”

Movie : Did some movie and tv watching this holiday. I can highly recommend the movie “The Old Man and The Gun” with Robert Redford and Sissy Spacek. A really good movie about a man named Forrest Tucker, not to be confused with the old “F Troop” actor. Tucker was, in every sense of the word, a “career criminal”, who successfully escaped from prisons 18 times, and 12 unsuccessfully. A well acted, well written and even paced movie that could be enjoyed by young adults. It is a thinking “movie” with no gratuitous violence and no-sex. Wow, what a concept.
