Sorry to sound like a Sorry to sound like a Sorry to sound like a ...


My CFS has been suckness lately.  The walking exertion of Tuesday left me with very bad brain troubles, so I haven't been able to think or do much.  It is still attacking me.  Lately, I have pushed my way through a few movies.  But this morning I did some major snow-shovelling.  When it looked like I was done, the jackass next door yelled something.  I have been doing this for 5 or six years here - they are new here.  If they don't like it they should find some other hellhole neighbourhood.  They live like pigs, walk through yards, and try to intimidate people.  Meanwhile, the old crazy man downstairs is in some shovelling competition with me.  When he first moved here, he seldom shovelled.  He stomped around and banged on the walls incessantly.  He played games with his garbage cans, etc.  Now he shovels.  He is much quieter.  He wears a new winter coat that looks just like mine.  He got a new car that looks like my funky windbreaker - after hearing me always saying, "Boosaroo!" every time a Subaru sponsorship would be mentioned on, "Prairie Home Companion."  Boosaroo!  (That's Subaru) pronounced backwards.  Yes, his car is now a Subaru...

He has immitated everything he has heard or see me do, including chumming up with my LL, whom I now regret to be an idiot in certain ways - such as stupidly making my life worse as this psychopath simply exploits her gossip.  So - the point is - where do these creepy monkey people come from?  Immitation is not flattery when these closet bullies do nothing but try to own your life and dispose of you.  How many movies have been made of this theme.  Unfortunately, it is not a rare phenomenon - it is everywhere, at least in Illinois.  All the sane people have been leaving this state, but nobody every really looks at the social mental illness here as a possible cause.  If you mention it here, you are branded as thin-skinned, or completely CRAZY.  AS THE INNITIATOR OF THE PROBLEM.  And all the dregs just count on this dys-ethic to embolden and enable their disease.  Conservatives let it happen because they just want to ignore the poor or mentally ill.  Liberals let it happen because old men, blacks, other minorities CAN DO NO WRONG.

I should be one of those minorities in their eyes, since I have a disability.  However, that disability is invisible to the stupid.  Even while I am subconsciously denied because I am ill, I am consciously blamed for NOT being ill.  It's absolutely crazy.  Instead, I am culled for the reason that I am a fine white male with undo privilege and a sense of entitlement, entitling everyone around here to endlessly try to pilfer my spirit, my dog, my happiness, my mere survival.  The Spirit-Stealers.  I go about my business, and whites who don't know my situation are completely wonderful to me, especially if they are conservatives, disgustingly trying to involve me in their racism against all blacks.  On the other hand, blacks and many white liberals enjoy setting me into any petty disadvantage they can think up.  Even while I detest racism either way, it is a fact that a great many of the blacks around here are racist bullies towards the cowardly whites.  This is what America was made to be?

Well, some months ago, the jackass racist black next door yelled at me for absolutely no reason - plus various other bullshit.  All I do is mind my business, tend to my dog, and act decent to other people, except for those who take advantage of this.  I don't understand why we cannot evolve as a species beyond this mean animal psychopathology.  This guy yelled at me to control my dog, out of his complete fear, even though I was clearly controlling my dog, who is so obviously lovable.  After that incident, seriously 2/3'd of the neighbourhood started acting like my dog was a super monstrous killer.  Because of the gossip and the blame, siding with the new BULLY - not me - even though I have been here for 5-6 years!  DEMONSTRATING how I respect everyone, and how decent my dog is.  Instead, all these people started stopping on the sidewalk half-a-block away, yelling at me for my dog, asking or demanding me to control him.  I have NEVER seen such a bizarre example of perverse human behaviour in all my life.

The BULLY is right because he's black, like them!

En masse, they are virtually BEGGING white people to be or become racists against them.  That's the truth.  They are deriving their sense of self from perpetuating the whole concept of white racism.

Anyway, I am not here to criticise blacks.  Whites are just as bad, in their own ways.  I am generalising here, of course.  As far as I am concerned, mean jerkwads can be white or they can be black, but their jackass racist or dysfunctional behaviour makes them BOTH the definition of BOTH 'niggers' and 'crackers.'   White and black both.  They are both the same thing.  Any group which tries to lord power over another, where they control the local group, or politics, or money, or weapons, or property, or age/muscle/masculinity/etc. - it is all the same crap.  And it is time we start recognising the deeper psychological problem/s in America which are shared by all factions, whether one group calls it white racism, or another group calls it black racism, or so on.

Anyway, since I was outside shovelling the other day, the bald-headed idiot downstairs - who is white - decides he MUST come out and shovel at the same time as me, even as he knew this would make my dog all jumpy.  Believe me, after two years of this guy's behaviour in the past - all committed to my notes for possible legal reasons - this guy KNEW what he was doing.  To stop my dog from jumping around, I had to give out a big shout, "Stop!"  That did the trick, and we went calmly inside together.  Sadly, my dog did not get his chance to do his daily exercise, because of this freakish parasite man.

Well, in the next two days after that, when I was outside shovelling, or with my dog, the asshole guy NEXT-DOOR and his wife start screaming loudly at me, while safely hidden in their house.  Now, I see it as being inconsistent that this BULLY idiot is now screaming stpidly for the fact that I actually CONTROLLED my dog, when that was what he innitially had SCREAMED at me to do in the first place, back when he was trying to establish his dominance of everything in the neighbourhood - coward that he is.  So - beyond this amusing fact, now the old bald guy downstairs is being emboldened by hearing them hating at me, and he is once again becoming more of a jerk.  He is waiting for the time when he can join forces with the BULLY, whom he has been afraid of so far, (and the bully's wife), and come down on me.

See what I am saying?  I am here minding my business, with bigger and better things to deal with than this petty retarded game played by a bunch of unevolved two-year-olds, including THIS SEVERE ILLNESS, my writing, my dog, etc.  Their game is starting to try to close in on me, simply because they hate themselves and their are envious of something about me - and they fear my dog - JEALOUSY.

This is how society closes in upon itself and reverts to pogroms, and wars, and broken economies, and anything but progressive evolution!  People react to their own jealousy, reinterpret it as righteous 'morality', and then actively blame the OTHER, whether that person or group has any relevance to causation or not.  And, I am saying: IT IS COMING FROM BOTH WHITES AND BLACKS, in the same disease! - Even though it is later separated into this racism or that racism, and so on, with group now being played against group by the partisan and the elite.  A great example of this pathetic yet real, tragic cancer inherent in human civilisation, especially in agri-urbanised (through history), can be seen in the movie, "Mother!" which was referred to me by the great LJista, "bird_and_fox".  (See akso, "Noah").

My brain is currently all awry, like much of it is being eaten alive.  That is why you are now getting this negative yet profound post.  I look at the reality I can see best.  But I will not to be a good LJer for a while, because more snow and illness is coming.  I might try to do a few little easy posts, but probably just more movies for me...  THIS post was begun yesterday, while I was ill as well - then it disappeared - then my browser disappeared!

I want to post about movies soon, but can't right/write now.  So, I will give some hints of some movies I've seen lately.  Can you guess the movie?

1 - Man Wrongly Imprisoned Dies - (September, 2001)

2 - Sam Rockwell returns with a beer-belly; and the town is full of white trash loonies.

3 - McDoormat and Herrelson did this even before #1. Soundtrack was largely Bob Dylan but maybe it should have been Prince, since it was set in mid 1980's.

4 - These two movies were mentioned in the rant(?) So, I next have to see the one with Portman and Kunis...

5 - This wedding-themed movie had a couple of knuckleheads, with both fine acting and sloppy crassness mixed together.

6 - This Irish young woman with the strange name tries to play a teenager again: movie?

7 - Made by a renowned cultish director, this dystopic movie was a bore, ending with a gun to the head.

8 - Preceded "Eternal Sunshine" and succeeded "Matrix" - kind of a heady flop w/ a great soundtrack!

9 - Trying now to really study HS coming-of-age movies, I watched this where the girl actually has sex w/ teacher - (a devolution of the John Hughs movies)...

10- Speaking of which, I need to see one of my old favs, starring someone who starred in #5. Hint: someone who worked on this movie just died.

I gave it the old college try. The ones ending with a question mark means I was either semi certain/not really certain at all.

1. Conviction

2. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

3. No idea, I assumed you were referring to McConaughey and Harrelson but couldn't think of anything.

4. Black Swan

5. Wedding Crashers? Only wedding themed movie with two knuckleheads that I could rack my brain for.

6. Ladybird

7. 12 Monkeys?

8. Vanilla Sky?

9. I'd guess Molly Maxwell but that's not a very well known movie, so my second more likely guess is Daydream Nation?

10. Since I'm not sure of my answer for #5 I'm also not sure of this.

1. Conviction - YES!

2. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri - YES!

3. No idea, I assumed you were referring to McConaughey and Harrelson but couldn't think of anything. - I don't know if I have ever seen those two together, even though they are similar. How about Frances McDormann??.... I hope you know this movie cause you would like it. Hint - Minnesota!

4. Black Swan - YES!

5. Wedding Crashers? Only wedding themed movie with two knuckleheads that I could rack my brain for - YES! - !

6. Ladybird - YES!

7. 12 Monkeys? - Wow - nice try, great movie although somewhat boring(!)... The actor in this Cronenberg-directed film reminds me of Justin Timberlake, (but more Italian and boring) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Cronenberg#As_director

8. Vanilla Sky? - YES! - very good!

9. I'd guess Molly Maxwell but that's not a very well known movie, so my second more likely guess is Daydream Nation? - I don't know the first one so it must be the second one. Right again!

10. Since I'm not sure of my answer for #5 I'm also not sure of this. - She was also in "The Notebook" and "Spotlight" - Another Canadian there is some kind of BOOK in every one of her movies... And she was in Wedding Crashers! But THIS film was her breakthrough...

;D

I knew you'd get almost all of these!

- Last night I watched a great 2002 Rom-Com directed by the same guy who liked blood, cigs and coffee.

- A few days ago I saw another (1999?) Rom-Com starring someone who waas also in "Untamed Heart" and "My Cousin Vinny" (respectively which I loved/liked)

Thank you. Your movie knowledge amazes me.


About that story for the contest... I think you have more talent than any others, and just remmeber: It doesn't HAVE to be a $3000 story. It just has to be better than the other entries! 'You can DO it!'

Ah, North Country. If I hadn't misinterpreted Mcdoormat for McConaughey then I would've gotten it almost instantly since North Country and Bob Dylan are synonymous in my mind.

Lol, when it comes to the Cronenberg movie, I'm probably wrong but is it existenz? with Jude Law?

Okay, so I'm still not entirely sure about which Rachel McAdams movie but I'm going to guess The Time Travellers Wife?

Hmmm...Marisa Tomei?...is it Happy Accidents? She was in so many movies during 1998-2004 so I can't pin point. I think my favorite movie she did during that time frame was Alfie, which isn't that great of a movie really but I fell in love with it when I was 12. Which explains a lot lol.

You have vastly more knowledge of movies than me. But you only got the first one right. Don't feel bad: You did so well on your first try, it makes me want to ask you questions about your interesting mind.

North Country! (yes!)

Cosmopolis (2012) - this movie is not worth seeing or knowing about, possibly a good xmas ornament

I loved, "Time Traveller's Wife"! - But the movie is, "Mean Girls." I know - why?! Because I once had a Lindsay Lohan phase, and this movie ended up being up there on my list. I really liked watching Amanda Seyfried's wayward movements.

I never saw Alfie, except for the old one, which I really liked. So, I should really, really like the later version too. I had a crush on Tomai. But THIS movie is called, "Only You." There were several things about it that didn't work, but it was pleasant and silly, and interesting as a forerunner of later romcoms. Yes? Maybe? Happy Accidents also sounds good - like Serendipity maybe...

Ah, the only one I'm surprised I didn't get is Mean Girls. Duuuh I don't know why I thought actual literature book as opposed to a movie with a book in it.

I refused to see Cosmopolis because Robert Pattinson annoys me and I've never seen Only You so I'm okay with my wrong guesses.

I liked the old Alfie too. The remake is a bit more quick in pace and Jude Law was one of my first celebrity crushes so it just holds a special place in my heart.

I haven't watched Happy Accidents in a long time but I really liked it for what it was.

Oh - I see...!

Good for you. If Pattinson was that star who reminded me of Timberlake, then I hate him too.

Jude Law. Amazing difference between his character portrayals between "Tristan & Isolde" and "Grand Budapest Hotel". Good choice for a crush.

The movie I watched last night had some of that mod pop Alfie stuff going on - and another (not the greatest) movie with that was... "Cry of the Penguins" - https://users.livejournal.com/madman101/tag/movies%20-%20'cry%20of%20the%20penguins'

I'll look forward to seeing "Happy Accidents" - it looks nice

Was Jude Law in Tristan & Isolde? Are you thinking of James Franco, or am I wrong?
where hypotheses come to die
madman101 at 2018-02-17 03:00 (UTC) (Lien)
Ha! Sorry! No, not James Franco. I must have thought that Rufus Sewell was Jude Law. Doyt. lol

Anyway, Law still has a great range. He's still pretty new to me.

I'm on a mission to learn more about all the movies I've missed.

Ah! Maybe this is what started my confusion. Both were in "The Holiday." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Holiday - (A better than average romcom chick flick and Diaz movie).

Ah, yes. I love The Holiday. I watch it every holiday season with a bottle of Manischewitz. I find that Kate Winslet was really awkward and unbelievable through the whole movie. Have you seen The Family Stone? Thats my all time favorite rom-com-esque holiday movie.


When I get back to Gimli on Tuesday I'll compile a small list of movies you may like. Maybe you'll have seen all of them but I'll make one nonetheless.

That would be very nice of you. (I've been saving all my library and cinema 'receipts' to jeep track of movies/ But for a while I was sending a bunch of them to a friend every time I wrote him. I've been tearing my hair out for a record of "Marie Antoinette" and "Under the Skin" - why? Because I cannot find the review I KNEW I wrote in my LJ, and I wanted to place the date approximately. Maybe I deleted it - it was pretty good/funny).

Holiday was definitely a better chick flick than, say, Eat, Pray, Love(!) I don't remember noticing that about Winslet. Maybe I did(?)

OH OH! - I had "The Holiday" tagged - so I went there and now the post is gone! Someone possibly hacked into my jnl!

Anyway, Winslet was fantastic in "Eternal Sunshine" and "Steve Jobs".

OK - Family Stone I will see. How about, "Pieces of April"? - Possibly my fav movie for Thanksgiving (USA).

birdandfox at 2018-02-21 03:27 (UTC) (Lien)
I keep my movie stubs also but the theatres here use printer ink that fades quickly over time.

I didn't mind Eat, Pray, Love when I saw it in theatres. Granted, I was 17 when I saw it and I do find it a bit eye-rolly now.

Eternal Sunshine is one of my all time favorite movies. She's also GREAT in Revolutionary Road and I loved her in Carnage. Maybe I just have a hard time believing her in romantic comedies- she just seems very out of her element and uncomfortable with the script/able to eliminate the cheese aspect of it.

I did like Pieces of April. I think it's the only movie I've really liked that Holmes has been in. My favorite Thanksgiving movie is Hannah and Her Sisters, actually it is just flat out one of my favorite movies.

Same w/ the library receipts for DVDs here - just regular toxic cash register receipts.

E,P,L - lol....

Eternal Sunshine is also at the top of my list. I've seen it too many times. I sense you are at least somewhat right about Winslet being out of her element there, for those reasons, although I want to watch that again to get a better idea on that. Comedy is said to be the most difficult acting, unless of course your personality is just built for it.

When I first saw "April" I had no idea who she was, (although I must have seen her on TV). My gf was stand-offish in seeing it cuz she knew more about her. I feel her subsequent movies were mainly movie-machine sell-outs. "April" was something different she tried and it probably pushed her career along but she could have kept with it, yes? Maybe she started this trend of "everyone's gotta do a few indie movies" even though they aren't really indie movies anymore.

I have been immunised against Woody Allen. I really have learnt not to like him. I can't even remember if I saw "Hannah". Some of his earliest stuff was good, but I just don't do him anymore. I've tried a few of his more recent things and I juyst thought they were awful. Like "Cafe Society"...

I promise I will see "Hannah" sometime...

I saw, "The Greatest Showman," tonight. I approve, but want to do a mini review soon. I have a quirky thing or two to say about it.

birdandfox at 2018-02-21 22:03 (UTC) (Lien)
What's you main chagrin with Allen? I've always been a fan, I don't think I could be swayed. I haven't seen Cafe Society, I feel like he's been churning out a lot of movies, maybe because he's getting old and wants to leave his mark.

I don't know if you've seen Scoop, I believe it was made around 2006? Sometimes I can't be bothered to google these things. Anyway, it had pretty dismal reviews but I enjoyed it. The latest movie he's made that I've loved is Blue Jasmine. Honestly, Cate Blanchette's performance in that movie is a thing of magic and should be watched even if you don't like Woody.

I like musicals but something about The Greatest Showman really made me not want to ever see it, haha. It could be Zac Efron, or it could be Zendaya. I'm not sure.

A very bad day kept me from this comment. Now seeing that you like Woody Allen, I may respond as a post, later. I sometimes do this as a way of trying not to offend. I really don't like W.A.

Showman had its drawbacks. But possibly worth seeing.

I thought you might like this one, which I just now watched: "Lady Macbeth" - ? "Like Hitchcock directing Wuthering Heights." Not meant to be funny, its quiet derangement is sometimes almost hilarious.

I don't ever take offence if someone doesn't like a certain movie or director that I like (and it amazes me someone would get offended by such a thing). Although, I feel I run into a lot of people who dislike Woody Allen, which does surprise me but never offends me.

I'll have to add it to my list of movies I want to see. I did read the novella in my first year of university.
