A doc that Netflix has made free on youtube back in April. It's part of their resources for teachers who needed them for students who didn't have access to Netflix. https://media.netflix.com/en/company-bl ... umentaries

That's one word I regret googling during breakfast.

Video games are giving kids unrealistic expectations on how many swords they can carry.

I have two incredible movie recommendations, both by the same director:

Embrace of the Serpent followings two western adventurers as they journey deep into the Amazon.



And the more recent, Birds of Passage, a beautiful gangster epic that takes place among the natives of northern Colombia.

FUCK YOU, I'M A WIZARD. FUCK YOU, I'M A SHARK.

I watched another incredible movie on Netflix, again, last night.

FUCK YOU, I'M A WIZARD. FUCK YOU, I'M A SHARK.

Thanks for those, Bless.

I'm enjoying the many videos of speeches by the late Elijah Cummings.

Yo, Yggy, I still get chills up my spine when I think of Robert Duvall's role and the end of his monologue:

"Some day this war's gonna end...….

Spooky.

Ever read the Joseph Conrad book that it's derived from, Heart of Darkness? I highly recommend it.

I stumbled upon an interesting Rube Goldberg device at the prompting of a friend and thought I'd show you. You'll watch nearly anything interesting when you're trapped by the pandemic:



Finally, I wanted to tell you of my new obsession - professional wrestling. Yes, I know the outcomes are predetermined, but the 'getting there' is half the fun as the storyline is told both inside and outside of the squared circle. I stay away from the mainstream, and follow a whole slew of promotions from the US and abroad. There are promotions on every continent except Antarctica. Just last week I saw the first promotions from mainland China and from Pakistan. How the fans react differs from country to country as well.

Included in my list of promotions I'm following:

Progress Wrestling (British 'strong' style) - London
ICW - Insane championship Wrestling - out of Glasgow, Scotland
German Wrestling Federation - Munich, Germany
Impact New Zealand
AAA - Tijuana, Mexico
IWGP - Japan

And these are just the international offerings. The US promotions run all over the US and Canada.

I miss Lucha Underground.

Bacon is forever. Veni, vidi, pertudi. (We came, we saw, we DRILLED.) - BRC Div. of Geology 2009-2015
I'm here until the serendipitous synchronicity is ubiquitous.
