I watched Twister last night during tornado warnings in the region.

Not a movie, but have been enjoying the Star Trek take off TV Series called Voyager, on Netflicks streaming. I had quite liked Star Trek, Next Generation, and when Voyager came out, didn't take to it then. But they are really quite good shows. Good way to get my head out of this old world.

Yes. Finally.
I've seen no comment from Pepik. He must be busy.

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Think I'll watch all of them (yes, maybe even that one) today while working on the wife's computer and the chaos I fondly call my office/den/studio.

I'm curious - when you say "maybe even that one" do you mean the crappy second movie or the crappy fourth movie?

Don't even go there, son. Temple of Doom might be #3 on the list, but it's still better than the vast majority of movies out there.

To be fair, I've not watched it in a long time. I saw it when I was 12 and at that time thought to myself, "Wow! This is a really crappy movie." I haven't tried it again. I figure that if a 12-year-old can tell it's crappy then it's probably pretty bad.

I think there are a few things that would go right over the head of a 12-year-old. There are some 'fake-sneeze-Bullpucky!' moments - like the mine car rollercoaster stuff - but generally it's a fun flick.

TNG was great. I really tried to like DS9 in spite of the Ferengi characters, but the franchise jumped the shark with Voyager, IMO.

One of my students said they actually watched the fourth one in Physics. I'm going to watch it just to see if there's something in there that a physics teacher would use to teach a concept. Or maybe he was just punishing the class. Who knows?

To be honest I've only seen about 20 minutes of it, towards the end I think, and it was just as bad as I had been warned. If you do manage to survive watching I'd be curious to hear of your sufferings.

Really? Doom is my fave.

And, AFAIAC, Skull is on par with all the others. IOW, only a difference of degree, not of kind.

My wife is out of town attending a women's health conference in Arizona.

Just watched "Genius," the story of Maxwell Perkins and Thomas Wolfe's relationship, lying down on the sofa with my 14 year old setter, Quinn at my feet.

Brought me to tears thinking of my fondness for Nick Lyons.(I get very sappy when my wife is a away.)

I ain't no Thomas Wolfe, but Nick is as like Max Perkins as you will find in publishing today. Ask any writer who has ever had the honor of working with him, or any serious reader of outdoor literature who has felt the weight of Nick's body of work, both authored and edited.
The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.

J.R.R. Tolkien



Wherever we go in the world we find other men speaking the same language...dreaming the same dreams. And one of the big four - brownie, or brookie, cutthroat or rainbow - is the cause of it all.
