11/07/21 – Time Change

CURRENT EVENTS

Here is a time change I thing we could all use.

Every precaution you take against evil,

you put yourself into the power of that evil.

BOOK OF THE WEEK

I think this is an important book to read, if you are interested in the Christian religion. It raises and discusses some serious questions regarding  the Christian religion.

The Religious Life of Thomas Jefferson

By Charles B. Sanford 

ENTERTAINMENT OF THE WEEK

This is a bit of a confusing film. I’m glad I saw it, but once was enough. It contains a great cast and any movie with Bill Murray in it is automatically cool.

If you are a writer, the film contains one piece of excellent writing advice. Bill Murray tells a writer, “Try to make it sound like you wrote it that way on purpose.”

The French Dispatch (2021)

The French Dispatch of the Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun is a 2021 romantic comedy-drama anthology film written, directed, and produced by Wes Anderson.  

The film stars an ensemble cast, featuring Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Lyna Khoudri, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, Stephen Park, Bill Murray, and Owen Wilson. 

Additional cast members in The French Dispatch include Liev Schreiber, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Saoirse Ronan, Elisabeth Moss, Jason Schwartzman, and Anjelica Huston. 

Its plot follows three different storylines as the French foreign bureau of the fictional Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun newspaper creates its final issue.

Following a delay from 2020, The French Dispatch had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on July 12, 2021, and was theatrically released in the United States by Searchlight Pictures on October 22, 2021. (Source: Wikipedia)

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

What other song could I use, given that we are turning back our clocks this week?

If I Could Turn Back Time

by Cher

The music video for “If I Could Turn Back Time”, takes place on board the battleship USS Missouri. It depicts Cher and her band performing a concert for the ship’s crew.

The video was filmed in Los Angeles on Friday night, June 30, 1989, while the ship was stationed at the former Long Beach Naval Shipyard at Pier D. In the video, the band plays on the foredeck, and the ship is rigged with spotlights, light racks and strobes.

Cher’s son, Elijah Blue Allman, 12 at the time, appears as one of the band’s guitarists wearing dark glasses and a Jimi Hendrix T-shirt. (Source: Wikipedia)

  1. I had forgotten how much I enjoy Cher’s voice. That was a treat.

    Good for Kanter. I am very saddened about China’s human rights violations. I read product labels and put back “Made in China,” but I am only one person.

    • Yes, I was very impressed with Kanter. As for China, I fear Priscilla that your cart will be rather empty. I head someone say we need to bring manufacturing back to the USA and if we can’t afford to make it here, we should have our Central and South Americans make it and help raise their standard of living.

      • Over the past few years I’ve been able to find USA- or British- or Mexican-made items (from clothing to vacuum cleaners), but I’ve been unable to find anything but Chinese items in terms of: coffee pot, spatula, frying pan, and can opener. Sigh.

  2. Love Wes Anderson.
    Love the quote with Captain Picard and “emergency saucer separation.”
    Love Yoda’s quote. The thing that recently confused me about Star Wars and Yoda and how the “spiritual messages” filtered down to the population was a portion of Star Wars fans got REALLY angry with John Bodega was cast to co-star in the first movie remake, flowing free with derogatory racial slurs, etc., etc.
    Where was all the Yoda-talk, all the “dark side” thoughts? Out the window, evidently !!
