    Yeah but it's probably just an allegory about how capitalism turns people into mindless sleepwalking consumers of what tickles other peoples brains...
    And you aint into that socialism shit.. right?

    Thats a fantastic thing.
    I think I'm gonna steal it.
    If Bob Dylan had a son his son would grow up in a lifestyle different than that of Pops. So would Dylan's spitting image really be his biological doppleganger trying to make big hits only to fail every time but once when he became a wonder.
    Or would it be a fan born from fans who together blew the cool breeze that fanned the flames of a thousand ships and floated all your boats?
    His sons mirror opposite.
    Is his father's son.
    Then again Bob wasn't gonna let his kid grow up to be no wanna be punk.
    You aren't supposed to "want" that life.
    You are born into it.
    A wallflower might only have one headlight but it still manages to see everything anyways.
    That song is never gonna die in our lifetimes.
    So Jake said... There's more than one way to skin a cat Pops!

    Watching the Aaron Hernandez doc on Netflix. Very good, but truly a miserable story all around .... also, I cannot be the only person to see the infantile irony of the funeral home that buried Hernandez after his suicide ...

    Really? They couldn't change the name at all, given Aaron's little secret? Wow ...

    ^ I saw that too, almost impossible to believe that happened
    my new guilty pleasure is "peep show"
    apparently been on a while but its new to me and has some hilarious moments

    Chicago the Terry Kath experience
    Maybe the greatest debut album in rock history
    This is his daughter as a filmmaker , who never knew him, tracking down his guitars and his legacy
    The interviews w the musicians who knew him and how they communicate what her father meant to him is amazing
    Watch it alone so no one sees you tear up

    I will absolutely be watching that soon, but with all the death and sadness in my family the last week, I may have to wait until after a few funerals have gone by...

    Cliched advice, but nothing wrong with leaning on your faith during trying times.

    2016 4 show series called "retribution"
    set in Edinburgh Scotland, one of my favorite places i ever visited, the cinematography is excellent and gorgeous
    the story is strong and short w solid actors
    recommend this one
    update the director is William McGregor apparently the best director i've never heard of
    lots of awards and history for a 32 year old kid
    look forward to checking it out

    Found a little gem on Prime the other day... "Has Anyone Seen One- eyed Jimmy"? Or something like that.
    Steve Buscemi, Paulie Walnuts, every Toturro on earth, Sam Worthington, Samuel LJackson, a host of other urban gansta types and funny, man. Sorta a poor man's Soprano revisited.
    Paulie is flat out hilarious.
    Check it out.

    Amy from 2015
    its a look at those of us that loved her and not the drugged out footage we've all seen
    Place beyond the pines was an excellent story

    I watched episode 1 of Netflix's reboot of Unsolved Mysteries. Fuck me. Talk about compelling.

    I want to know who killed Rey Rivera, because unless he was Bob Beamon, he NEVER clears 40 feet lateral to go through that roof. Somebody dropped him from a helicopter.

    thats what i said cause there's just no way he lands there from any place but that ledge and that' nearly impossible
    although maybe he was trying to get away from someone trying to cause him harm and fell
    still there should have been a forced window since the only open a fraction if at all
    my hands were seriously sweating watching his wife on that roof w no handrails or wall!
    he almost had to go in from above from helicopter
    but then how are his sandals right there and his cell and glasses in perfect condition?
    really crazy

    We watched El Embarcadero (The Pier) a couple weeks ago. Sordid, sexy and with a great plot. 2 seasons of 8 episodes so a quick watch. Same actor as Money Heist.

    From Spain with subtitles.

    Netflix HOME GAME ... great doc series.

    Episode 1 shows the 2019 Italian Calcio Storico championship.

    This sport proves just how pussy pro sports is. There's exactly ZERO MLB players who'd survive one game of this contest. Maybe half a dozen NFL & NHL guys would make it, and the NBA? Those wimps would get bagged & tagged in the first five minutes.

    Real sports, bitches.

    OK then...

    Wife and I just watched The Social Dilemma ... absolutely unparalleled watch, boyos. I can't give it enough stars.

    It's on Netflix. It's worth your time.
