Dr. Fauci vs. Dr. Wittkowski: Endless Mitigations or Herd Immunity – YouTube

Flash Forward, TV

There was a Blackout. It was Worldwide. But it wasn’t technology. It was People, everywhere, who blacked out. And they had visions. Of their own Future.

Some of these visions were quite bad. But do they have to happen? And then, as people go on living their lives, things and situations happen, and they realize: Oh my God! This was like part of what was in my earlier vision.

What caused the Blackout? What caused the visions? Are the people helpless against Fate? This show is available on DVD.

TV tragedies, relentless Advertising and Burnout.

Animal cruelty. It’s wrong and it’s sad.  They don’t deserve it. No one does. I hope some good Master or owner will buy them, rescue them and take good and loving care of them.  But—-

…there is a However.  A big however. Nope, its even bigger than that. (this won’t be popular but someone needs to say it).  Have you ever—cared about something, felt empathy for it—-and then, been nagged and nagged and nagged and pestered and nagged and nagged some more?  Until what you had sympathy for is now very annoying.  This is happening.  Now. On TV.

So…I had a day off. I turned the TV on, and left it on.  An Animal Cruelty commercial came on, complete with a sad-sounding narrator and even what sounded like actual Violin-music in the background. Then it gets worse—-

I notice that  “Man, O Man! That has got to be THE lloooonngest single commercial in history! Holy crap.” Yes, its a worthy cause to address but Sheesh!, is this a commercial or a Podcast/conference? That was bad enough, and then it get’s worse. The TV shows this, and re-shows, and re-shows, and later on still re-shows this….Good God, this is Relentless! Enough already! Seriously.  You say: but they need help.—

Fine. Then go buy and rescue 11 dogs,  yourself,  and then SHUT THE F*** UP!!

Because you’ve Exhausted me. With your Fanaticism. And Nagging.

And more Nagging! For awhile, I could relate. But now the commercial is worse than a telemarketer. Congratulations! –Your Un-relenting-ness has now given me “empathy Burn-out”.  They want people to care, but all this persistence and reminders and repetition, on and on, over and over,  is now REPELLING folks, and downright annoying.

And so….I changed the channel. On this channel, there is a commercial asking to donate money for care-packages to starving people in a foreign country.  Then, a bit later, they show it again!  Is there anything else to talk about?

And then….they show a commercial for cancer-kids and handicapped.  Good grief, does EVERYTHING have to be some gut-wrenching Tragedy?!?   Over and over and over…..

I change back to the first channel I was watching. A commercial comes on. Now it’s about wounded warriors. Yet ANOTHER tragedy!  And they keep re-showing this one, too.  And I was -already-  suffering “compassion-fatigue”. But this stuff just goes oonnnn and oonnnn.  Is there ANYTHING Positive to advertise?  Anything?

It’s too much.  Dayyy after Dayyy.  And then someone says:

Well, someday, it might be you! And I say: Yes, that could happen. And if it does, I, too, may ask for help.  BUT—-iiii won’t do it 9-times-a-day.  And then,  tomorrow…….and then…..

MONK. TV show

Some years back, there was a TV crime show simply called: “MONK”. That was for Adrian Monk. I loved this show because it was done differently. Most crime shows are a who-did-it. With many episodes of Monk (i think there were 8 seasons), in the first 10 minutes Monk would say: “That’s the guy!” –but, at the time Monk says that, it seems soooo unlikely, maybe even impossible, or someone has a great Alibi. You are often told right up front who did it, and the show is still very interesting because you can’t possibly see HOW it could be “that guy” and spend just about all of the show wracking your brain, trying to figure out how MONK figured it out. Then, in the last 2 minutes, you get the Big Reveal. This is the end of one of my favorite episodes. It’s season 2, episode 1 “Mr. Monk Goes Back to School”. Season 2 is available on DVD from Amazon.

“Nora”. The Outer Limits (90s series, TV show)

The OUTER LIMITS was a 60’s and then later a 90’s Sci-fi TV show. This episode is from the 90’s series. Nora meets her exact clone.  Creepy!  The Outer Limits had many very good plots and ideas. Often, things that you would hope never happen, but often fascinating and thought-provoking.  I like how the 90s episodes have interesting narration at the beginning and endings.

 

Old TV Western. “The Guns of Will Sonnett”

This was a 70’s Western TV show. “The Guns of Will Sonnett” starring Walter Brennan.  This show is available on DVD through Amazon.   Funny, how there are so many crime shows on TV but hardly any Westerns (are there any?) today.

Carona virus, Cabin Fever & good Movies

As  we spend more time indoors due to the Carona Virus, here are some good movie/DVD/TV recommendations.   In no particular order:

  1. LMN (Lifetime Movie Network).  If you have cable TV, this channel basically shows one 2hr movie after another.  A surprising amount of good movies.  Great suspense! Movies involving: fake identities, stalkers, school crushes with the wrong person, warped psychos, people wanting revenge, evil neighbors and ripped-from-the-headlines stories. The good guys usually win, but can go through hell getting there.
  2. . the movie, “Police Academy”.  Maloney is a goof-off/prankster. It’s just plain funny. Buy the DVD or rent this.
  3.  “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” w/Steve Martin. The poor guy just wants to get home for the holidays to be with his family and one-thing-after-another goes wrong.  You gotta see this.
  4.  “The Dead Zone”.  a 70s movie. Its been a long time. Was it about mind control? But after all these years, I remember it was a good one.
  5.  “Firestarter”. Based on a Stephen King novel.
  6.  “Porkey’s”    Porkeys was a bar. The owner is a crabby old man. Some high school or college kids get revenge. Funny.  And—

Along with good movies, now is a good time to get the Family together, order a Pizza and get together around a big table and play some fun old Board Games.  People did more of this back in, say, 1970. It was a fun way to connect with friends. We can still do it now. Chances are, you’ve heard of the game: Monopoly.   But there are some other good ones. Barnes & Noble, Walmart or Target should have these. Try the games:

  1. Yahtzee ( a dice game)
  2.  Clue ( a who-dunnit crime game that leaves Clues)
  3.  Aggravation  (whoever gets all of their marbles around the board first, wins. But it takes rolling a 6 or a 1 to be able to move a marble out of the “home row”. There is also decison-making. Do you want to move-out another new marble or further advance one thats already out on the board?

Movies and Games. Gather ’round and enjoy some fun. And re-connect. For now, stay home and stay healthy.

Manifest. New TV show.

There is a NEW TV show on Monday nights. It’s called: “Manifest”.  It looks good.

 

What happens when you get on a plane, the flight encounters turbulence, but you land safely, and then you find out that…….watch this!
