04/10/22 – Hopefully Putin’s Invasion Will Backfire

CURRENT EVENTS

Hopefully Putin’s Invasion Will Backfire

After the Russians were driven out of Bucha, Ukraine, it was terrible what the Ukrainian liberators found. The murder of defenseless civilians by Russian criminals, mass graves, apparently torture, rape, etc.

BOOK OF THE WEEK

How about some lighter reading this week. The Tao of Willie is a fun book to read and provides a great deal of wisdom.  

The Tao of Willie

By Willie Nelson with Turk Pipkin

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

Normally, when I see a film I don’t like, I simply don’t mention the film.

However, I feel life is simply too precious for anyone to waste on this 2 hour and 56 minutes of darkness. 

If you have seen the film, please comment on what you think of it, whether you liked it or didn’t.

The Batman (2022)

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

Keep A-Knockin

By Little Richard

ART OF THE WEEK

Kurt Halsey Paintings

These are some original Kurt Halsey paintings that I acquired around 15 or 20 years ago. I wish I had acquired more.

FRIENDS FROM MY YOUTH

  1. It is enough already, Putin should be put to stop its really sad to see innocents suffering due to greedy leaders.

  2. Bill, as always, I love the smorgasbord of awesomeness! You manage to provide encouragement, laughs, wisdom, and facts all in one post. Thank you for sparing the time on the movie. And what a nice group of friends you experienced. The quote? Perfect! Stay healthy and blessed dear friend.

    • As I mentioned, I think critical thinking is becoming a lost art and people tend to simply believe anything they are told by the media, liberal or conservative. I was aware of the song. Perhaps, I should listen to it.

  3. I feel like Putin’s getting backed into a dangerous corner and who knows what he’ll do next. I’m worried for everyone over there AND the rest of the world.
    In lighter (more inane topics, at least compared to Putin) Batman was VERY depressing, although I like Robert Pattinson a lot. He’s been in other less well-known movies and is a fine actor. IE, even though I hated The Lighthouse, in the end, he was great in that. But yeah…I kinda already forgot what the latest Batman was even about. *sigh*

    • Thank you for commenting Crystal and so far it looks like Putin made a disastrous decision. Still, it has caused so much suffering for so many. I think Putin will go down in history as being evil.

  4. I loved the new Batman movie even though I found it a little too stretched out at the end.
    It’s a good movie but for me, it hasn’t beaten the Dark Night. So far that’s the best batman movie.
