It’s Aloha Friday,Motes For The Beach

A good date night movie: “Purple Hearts” is currently the most popular movie on Netflix, according to the streaming service’s public ranking system. The romantic drama tells the story of a struggling musician and a Marine who agree to marry strictly for military benefits but find themselves falling in love for real. We watched it last week and it was really kind of enjoyable. Like I said, a good date night movie.

Splitting hairs: I love how the facts checkers can rule something “mostly true”. Isn’t that like “partially false”?  So, if I say Barrack Obama is our first black gay president, isn’t that “mostly true”? So, does it matter which part is true or false for it to be “mostly true”? If it’s a semi-automatic rifle, I can still call it a “weapon of war” because it looks like an automatic rifle? I’m so confused.

It’s happened before: Ivana Hrynkiw, a journalist for Alabama-based news outlet “”, traveled to Atmore on Thursday to cover the execution of death row inmate Joe Nathan James Jr., but prison officials told her when she arrived that she couldn’t view the execution because her skirt was too short. A dress code posted on line for prison visitors says that “all dresses, skirts, and pants shall extend below the knee (females only).” Reminds me of an incident in the late 70’s when a Honolulu Public Defender was sent home to change into “more court appropriate attire.” Yeah, that went over like a….well, it didn’t go well.

I agree, just not the way she’d think: Joy Behar told her co-hosts on Tuesday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View” that President Joe Biden is like the actor Liam Neeson in the 2008 action film “Taken” while discussing the killing of al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in a drone strike in Afghanistan. Neeson has had the same stunt double since 1999, Mark Vanselow. So, I agree in that they are both hypocritical, both need someone to write a good script, and they’re both  lousy actors.

Just a note: I do enjoy “The Mayans” tv show. Yes, it’s unrealistic and not really about bikers, I know. Did you know you can buy season 1-2-4 in dvd but you can’t find season 3? Not Amazon, e-bay, Best Buy, all don’t seem to have season 3. Huh? Wonder why.

Priorities mixed up; Calipornia Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) declared a state of emergency in response to the monkeypox virus. There have been 827 reported cases. Now in 2021 fentanyl accounted for 3,946 deaths and 16,537 E D visits, but that’s nothing to worry about, yet. 

No evidence needed: The Russian Supreme Court on Tuesday declared Ukraine’s Azov Regiment a terrorist organization banned in Russia, a designation that may expose Ukrainian prisoners of war held by Moscow to terrorism charges. Azov, which played a key part in the defense of the southeastern Ukrainian city of Mariupol, has been repeatedly portrayed by Russian officials and state media as a Nazi formation allegedly committing atrocities against Ukraine’s civilians. No evidence has surfaced to back up these assertions. No evidence is needed now, it’s all guilt by accusation.

Staying in town this weekend. Might just share some good Irish whiskey with some friends. You never know.
