If you have some time to spend to listen to a great interview. Put some time aside for this gem.

It's been 11 months and this memo is still taped next to the time clock at work (a major lab). This was reality before Covid. You may be able to gage how full of shit the CDC is.

Just watched The Dig (2021) on Netflix with Ralph Fiennes, Carey Mulligan and a great cast. Basil Brown, excavator finds a 5th century Anglo Saxon ship buried in the English countryside. This film gives him the credit he deserved. A+

I reposted a video the other day of Dr. David Martin who speaks soo articulately about the fact that he has known the Covid crisis was coming since 1999 and that it's purpose is for profit. I invested the hour and half to watch this, in it Martin speaks with what appears to be no notes and off the top of his head. It's a must watch and important. Share this.

I'm listening to this great book. The island of Tinian (about 100 miles north of Guam and 1500 from mainland Japan) was the base for the drop of two atomic bombs in Japan. This lead up to the drop is fascinating. The author lives on Tinian. A+

I just saw an amazing film called Dark Water with Mark Ruffalo, Anne Hathaway, Tim Robbins and Bill Camp. A chemical called C-8 made in the manufacture of Teflon by Dupont poisoned land and water and caused cancer in scores of people. Attorney Rob Bilotts fought Dupont for over 20 years and won big judgments. This man is a hero and everyone should see this important film. A+

Car tip: seat covers by a company called Coverado. Got the two front seat covers for only $99 on Amazon. Sweet right? 😁

Just watched Complete Unknown (2016) with Rachel Weisz, Michael Shannon. She left 15 years ago and was 9 different women. Amazing Cinematography by Christos Voudouris filmed in Manhattan. A+

January 1975, 45 years ago this month one of the best Jazz Fusion records ever made was recorded. No Mystery by Return to Forever with Chick Corea, Stanley Clark, Al Di Meola and Lenny White. It still sounds great.

Just watched a brilliant film called Experimenter (2015) with Peter Sarsgaard, Winona Ryder. In 1961 famed social psychologist Stanley Milgram conducted a series of radical behaviour experiments that tested ordinary humans' willingness to obey authority. You can still buy his book, Obedience to Authority. He wanted to understand why people were killed in WWII by Nazi's and others. A+

Tonight watching a great series called Manhattan (2015) about the Manhattan project and it's community of people in the New Mexico desert in the 40's. A lot of good actors in this including Rachel Brosnahan, Olivia Williams, Ashley Zukerman, Daniel Stern, Michael Chernus. It's worth a watch.

Watching a great series called Trust about J. Paul Getty's grandson that was kidnapped in Italy in 1973. With Donald Sutherland. Hillary Swank, And Brendan Fraser who plays a Texas cowboy hat wearing security guy (great part) that goes to Italy to look for the young grandson. In the show is a model of the Getty Villa that was built in Malibu years later.

Watched this tonight. This is a really special film. A+

Just watched Mr. Jones (2019) with James Norton, Vanessa Kirby, Peter Sarsgaard. A true story of a brave journalist (Gareth Jones) that witnessed the Famine in Ukraine in the 30's. A lie that it wasn't happening was perpetrated by English journalist living in Moscow. This is an important film about how the lives of millions of people were thrown away to protect the communist government of the Soviet Union. A+

Just watched Mank on Netlfix about the writer of Citizen Kane Herman Mankiewicz. This movie in it's rich Black and White is a frigging masterpiece. Not a spoiler: an amazing scene where Mank goes on a drunken rant in the dining room at Hearst Castle. Watching him are Marion Davies, Louie B Mayer and the man himself William Randolph Hearst. One of the most amazing scenes in any movie ever. A+ way up for this film.

Finished watching Roadkill a British 4 part series starring Hugh Laurie on the PBS Masterpiece Channel on Amazon Prime. They have a free 7 day trial right now. Really great show and you will know why this show has to have a second season.
