David Lynch is the only director who affects my dreams. After watching anything by him I have the most bizarre dreams the following night.
I’m watching his new “Twin Peaks” series. You’re not really a David Lynch fan until you see the third season’s eighth episode. It cannot be described adequately, though attempts have been made.
George Romero, whose classic “Night of the Living Dead” and other horror films turned zombie movies into social commentaries and who saw his flesh-devouring undead spawn countless imitators, remakes and homages, has died. He was 77.
Romero died Sunday following a battle with lung cancer, said his family in a statement provided by his manager Chris Roe. Romero’s family said he died while listening to the score of “The Quiet Man,” one of his favorite films, with his wife, Suzanne Desrocher, and daughter, Tina Romero, by this side.
Let’s take a look at a clip from a classic:
(Just for the record, my favorite zombie entertainment is “iZombie” on CW. I just binged watched three seasons of it.)
It seems to be an addiction:
Those crazy kids.
OK. Those crazy Russians.
What is this song, anyway?
The song that’s sitting atop the Billboard Hot 100 list is “Despacito,” a Spanish-language track by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, with an assist from Canadian boy Justin Bieber.
Perhaps needless to say, it’s not common for non-English-language tracks to land very high on the Billboard charts. Over the past 35 years, we identified 15 songs that matched that criterion.
This has been the No. 1 song in America for eight weeks. And the first time I heard it was yesterday, which shows how out of the loop I am. I guess I should take a look at the whole thing.
Let’s reflect on this for a while:
And while you’re reflecting on that. Think about this:
On the day Tatyana Hargrove rode her bike to try to buy her dad a Father’s Day gift, temperatures in Bakersfield, Calif., had reached triple digits, so she stopped on the way home to take a drink of water in the shade.
The 19-year-old girl turned around at the intersection where she had paused and noticed three police cars. One of the officers, she said, had already drawn his gun. …
On the day police stopped Hargrove, officers had been looking for a suspect — described as a 25- to 30-year-old, bald black man standing 5-foot-10 and weighing about 170 pounds — who had threatened several people with a machete at a nearby grocery store, according to a police report.
“She appeared to be a male and matched the description of the suspect that had brandished the machete and was also within the same complex the suspect had fled to,” Christopher Moore, the arresting officer, wrote in his report.
But Hargrove is none of those things.
For starters, she is female. She stands 5-foot-2 and weighs 115 pounds “soaking wet,” according to her father in a widely shared video of Hargrove’s account of the incident posted on the Facebook page for the Bakersfield chapter of the NAACP.
Do I really have to tell you the races of the people named here?
(And no, a 5’2″ 125 pound girl doesn’t look like a 5’10” 170 pound bald man.)
Now, if I have this right, the Orange Babyman’s son had a meeting with Natasha Fatale to get dirt on Hillary. But Natasha and Boris, being spies, turned the tables on Babyman Jr. and have, as a result revealed that Babyman’s campaign was relying on Russian information to throw the election to the self confessed pussy grabber.
I believe it went something like this:
Any by now, you figured out Babyman’s son also goes by the name Bullwinkle and the goof gas had a negligible affect on him. (It didn’t bother him much, either.)
