Off-Topic / Re: I Saw A Celebrity, Get Me Outta Here!!!

Another year, another festival, another celeb.  This time...Chip Esten.  And yes, I have a picture but it's on Insta and I'm not sure how to link it here.  It was a real easy meet because he's known my sister for years.

Short "pilot' presentation for a feature length "cabin in the woods" style thriller.  This was posted a while ago, evidently, but I happened to see it and met the filmmakers last night and it seemed like the kind of thing worth sharing on here.  Very curious to see where it goes.

A young girl lives with her family in a bunker, protected from monsters.  GREAT.

Today also had Drumpf threatening civil war, and saying he was trying to figure out who the whistleblower is.  Both are crimes.

He also fails to realize when you sue, you ahve to turn over evidence.  Which is what he's being accused of.

An outlaw walks into a saloon... and a ballet of death ensues.

In for a Pence, in for a pound.

1) It's not a transcript, it's a summary.  Slashed all to h*ll.  And they still couldn't get it right.

2) I've been tough on Pelosi for not impeaching until now, though Pence is as worse if not more so than Drumpf, and we really don't want pardons.  I knew Pence was rotten and had to go, and he's definitely involved in this Ukraine thing (same as Barr, who should never have been Attorney General in the first placee)... but I only now realized that holy sh*t, if they all go down that makes Pelosi President.  Yeah, no wonder she's been treading carefully, this goes wrong and it looks like a coup (even though it's technically undoing a coup).  That's going to make for some real tough optics in the 2020 election.  At least Pelosi isn't RUNNING and she'd only be POTUS for less than a year, probably, so that helps.  And quite frankly, that's more or less what I was thinking in 2016: the second they knew that there was foreign interference with the election, they should have started investigations and counter-operations, and prepare for paper ballots and if that went PAST inauguration time, Biden as VP should have severed as interim President with the top priority of holding a secure election as soon as possible, ideally within a year's timespan.

3) I also remembered that the GOP killed the idea of primaries, so now they're more or less committed to stand by their man. And Drumpf combined his relection campaign with the GOP reelection campaign, which already seemed like a scam to just steal fundraising money, but now... yeah, that could really cripple them next year.  This is actually a good rationale FOR public funded campaigns and elections, rather than private donors. 

4) Evidently, if there was secret voting to impeach Drumpf, it would pass ... I want to say Congress with 30 Rs.  Which means 30 Republicans are cowards and know the right thing to do but won't act.  An impeachment hearing, especially a clear cut simple one like this, you don't want to be on the wrong side of when re-election comes around.

The other day, my neighbour Harry had his third birthday party.  Big deal, three.  Brought along this big dinosaur balloon that my sister found because I thought it would be a fun little extra.  They abused the sh*t out of that balloon, smacking that thing around with whip-speed open palms.

My point is: the humans in Jurassic Park probably have it coming.

Evidently the original book isn't that good either, the movie elevated the material with Tom Hanks, great direction, and a massive dose of nostalgia.

I wasn't either, but the date makes perfect sense.

I'm torn.  On the one hand, it LOOKS pretty cool.  Insofar as it looks like a movie.

However, two things stick out at me that aren't problems... but they kinda rub me the wrong way.  First, the ship looks like the Serenity.  It just looks like any other spaceship.  There's nothing terribly iconic or interesting about it.  It also reminds me of the one from Killjoys.  Two: the line of Crabonite-frozen prisoners.  Yeah, it's a good shot, but that was only ever used once.  It was kind of an odd thing to do at the time, there was no guarantee that Han would survive, and it just happened to be a thing they could do at the location they were at.  This is like... it doesn't gel with me.  It feels more like "here's more of what worked before," which isn't really gripping to me.

Well, i would assume the next movie, which comes out rather soon, will sort of tell us what happens to the Resistance.  So how many more seasons can you have?
