Friday Motes, Ending Work Day

Oh please dear gods, No: Sydney Sweeney has been tapped to star in and executive produce a Barbarella reboot, giving new life to Jean-Claude Forest’s comic series that spawned a 1968 film with Jane Fonda. The project is reportedly in the very early stages of development, with no writer or director attached to the new version of the sci-fi flick as of right now. Please, just write something new, even if it’s crummy. Don’t just remake old crummy.

A sad Birthday: Happy belated Birthday to John Prine, who was born on October 10, 1946. The life and music of John Prine were celebrated on what would have been the beloved singer-songwriter’s birthday Monday with another “You got gold” concert. The event held at The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville featured an all-star cast of musicians including Bob Weir with Rambling Jack Elliot, as well as Bonnie Raitt, Jason Isbell, Lucinda Williams, Brandi Carlile, Margo Price, Kacey Musgraves, Tyler Childers and many others. I literally had 3rd row center seats for John’s Honolulu concert, the one he canceled when he contracted covid. His passing was a loss for all of us.

I’m shocked I tell you, simply shocked: In September, Alabama police began investigating a social media post that threatened violence against Black people attending the Lee County Fair in Opelika, AL. The poster, whose Facebook page included a Confederate battle flag, said he and friends, “Are coming to [the] Opelika Alabama fair to kill every NEGRO that we lay eye contact on so be prepared. WHITE POWER.” The Opelika PD announced they have identified the poster as a Black teenager from Lafayette, AL. Pharrell Smith, 18, of Lafayette, La., was arrested by Lafayette police Thursday on unrelated charges and is expected to be extradited to Alabama to face a felony charge of making a terroristic threat once he is released from custody in Louisiana, Opelika police said.

Still an aberration: Just the thought of any state promoting “Sex-change and Abortion tourism for minors”, makes me want to puke. Reading it over and over in the media doesn’t made it normal.

It’ll happen again: Okay, I’m no fan of “Dr Oz”. After the recent tv interview Fetterman’s infirmities were clearly apparent to everyone. So of course, the demorat party has gathered solidly behind him. I still predict the “midnight voters” will carry Fetterman to victory. And nobody will act surprised.

Correction: I commented on the individual that stole the wallet from a man who had been crushed in a traffic accident. Contrary to the msm, this person is not a “pickpocket”. This person is a scummy thief and waste of air.

Okay, today is my last working day. As of 3:30 pm I am officially RETIRED.

Let the bells ring, let the birds sing, I’m done I’m done I’m done. Enjoy the weekend, I am. 😊
