Thank you America-
for creating in no particular order of importance or chrnology
The Internet , The Atom Bomb and Men on the Moon
Hollywood Movies and Cartoons and Comics and Bbq Burgers,
Chewing gum and Rock and Roll and Stand up Comedy,
Basketball and American Football, and Sports Marketing
but on the whole, just have a good time.
From time to time, I revisit the past just to ensure I am not choking on the same spin or hype bullshit I resent in this world of marketing the worlds perfect software (everyone claims to be it, noone is it)
From the very first Big Data conference ever (and kudos to Steve Wooledge at AsterData for coining the buzz word of the decade- BIG DATA)- a two year old interview.
Is it relevant- or outdated.
Disclaimer- white wine. 2 glasses.
This is a movie that restores faith in the good old art of story telling with completely realistic but not in the face Computer Generated Effects.
Both Charles (as Prof X) and Erik (as Magneto) are awesome, but Erik steals the show as Michael FAsbbender plays the avenging Holocaust victim with complete and ruthless abandon. The use of Mad Men like costumes, and the flashback to history was awesome too, but the Russians were bad- same old chaps we have seen playing Russians in dozens of movies , slurring over their Rs. The interpolation of JFK, Cuban Missile Crisis and even the 1960′s chauvinistic humor really add on to this movie.
Watch it- good for both family and friends. Kevin Bacon is a steal, and lots of talented actors now join the Kevin Bacon game.
you may experience a black day
out of the blue
your plans and your blueprint will falter
your blue blood is no longer a guarantee
for continued red carpets and
being born to the purple no cure
to never feeling blue
you may blanche,turn pale, show a yellow liver,
you may be caught in an area so grey,
your face grows red in surprise,
your friends declare you a white elephant,
your friendship terminated without a pink slip,
a black sheep, with the balance sheet in red
wait till it snows
for white Christmas to come
for the white lies to fade
soon spring will be here
greener pastures, still waters beckon
to a world of color not just black and white.
