God Blessed Texas

BOOK OF THE WEEK

There have been a lot of movies protraying  Davy Crockett. If you would like to know as close as we can come to the real story of this American hero, this book produced by The University of Tennessee Press is as close as it gets.

I found it a very interesting book to read.

A Narrative of the Life of David Crockett

of the State of Tennessee

By David Crockett

Davy Crockett buffs, Tennessee bibliophiles, genealogists, folklorists, historians, and the general reader should find this carefully researched and authoritative edition, which extricates the man from the myth, a valuable addition to the frontier history, biography, and literature of Tennessee and America.”
–Robert E. Dalton, Tennessee Historical Quarterly.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

This film is a love story set in a time of a zombie pandemic. It seemed all one needed to do in order to stop a pandemic was to not be fearful of other people and to practice a little love for other people. But, like the “Boneys”, some of you may be too far gone.

Warm Bodies (2013)

Warm Bodies is a 2013 American paranormal romantic zombie comedy film based on Isaac Marion’s novel of the same name, which in turn is inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. The film stars Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Analeigh Tipton, and John Malkovich.

The film focuses on the development of the relationship between Julie (Palmer), a young woman, and “R” (Hoult), a zombie, and how their eventual romance develops, causing R to slowly return to human form. The film is noted for displaying human characteristics in zombie characters, and for being told from a zombie’s perspective.

Normally, this is the point where I ask if you have seen the movie and if you liked it. I’m not going to do this, because this movie isn’t for everyone. But if you are a romantic with a sense of humor and can tolerate zombies, you might like it. I myself, was once a zombie, as you can see below (that is me with the tie).

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

Tuff Enuff

ART OF THE WEEK

Shredded Angel

I saw this on a FB friend’s page. They didn’t recall where it came from or who is the artist. I gave it a name, “Shredded Angel”. If you know anything about this image, please let us know via the comment section.

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON  OF THE WEEK

Yevgeniy Khudoleev 

Yevgeniy Khudoleev currently holds the WPC World’s Raw Deadlift in the 90 Kg (198.2 lbs.) Masters  7 (Age 70 to 74) category with a deadlift of 200 Kg (440.7 lbs.).

I met him back in 2015 in Maia, Portugal, where I came in second to him. He is a very cool guy and I found him to be an inspiration.
