This isn't a confrontational Thread- it's for advertising Films to those who are awake late at Night & for "late Night Musings".
You give my "Crap" incredible commitment...
I have some musings. I went to the wake of a man called Chris Barret. He owned a bar in South Boston called The Blackthorn. Practically every irish person who lived in Boston from 1990 to 95 would have gone there and that was it's heyday. The irish soccer team were always stuck down there. I remember being in there one night and the counter was invisible under all the money in tips. A bartender was making about 1700 a week down there then.
Anyway, there is now a t-mobile store there and there were just a handful of people at his wake when I got there for the last hour.
Time sweeps everything aside and life goes on. A person who once had such an impact is all too soon forgotten. It is amazing.

Looks like the cops have their hands full tonight in Hamburg. Lots to see and do for the visitors. Plenty of streaming too.
It's better than watching sport to be honest.
I dropped into a Sears store on the way home in Dedham that is going out of business. Everything at a discount so I bought 2 shirts for $21.80. Stores are closing left right and center as most people are too lazy to shop. They get everything by amazon delivered to the door. My son gets plant seeds from china delivered, and they may only cost $7. now the question is, how does a big truck and driver deliver a 7 dollar item up my street. the answer is, who the fuck knows.
I was looking at nice suitcases at $340. Everyone here is flat broke, the cost of a suitcase is 2 days wages.

In 1969 Florida, reporter Ward Jansen (Matthew McConaughey) returns to his hometown to write a story about death-row inmate Hillary Van Wetter (John Cusack), who was convicted of murdering a racist lawman.
Ward hires his younger brother, Jack (Zac Efron), as a driver and, together with his partner, Yardley (David Oyelowo), gets to work.
Though the possibility exists that Van Wetter is innocent, Ward and Yardley unwisely trust a vixen (Nicole Kidman) who will do anything to set the convict free.
Great, someone gets it. Here today, gone tomorrow and no one gives a flying fuck. As for everyone else they're too tied up in their own lives.
It means nothing to 99.9% of the population of this planet.
These other cunts, Trump and his class of people hold extremely important positions and this scum rule with an iron fist and it will ALL END IN TEARS.
Are you talking about the dead man at the Wake?
If so, then it was indeed a dramatic example of nobody giving a rat's ass.
Both posts. People die and business trundles on. Stuff happens and 'our' rulers remain in charge.
How right you are. As important a part that Chris Barret played in the Irish community in Boston in the 90s, Sears was the absolute epitome of America. The Sears Catalog was second only to the Bible perhaps in the American heyday.
History of the Sears Catalog
It was the b all and end all.
"serves as a mirror of our times, recording for future historians today’s desires, habits, customs, and mode of living."
It would be inconceivable when both were in their prime that they would see such a humble exit

In the great American tradition of people venturing into the woods and encountering absolutely pants-wetting terror, what starts as two dorks with a video camera having a lark in a national park metastasizes into something much deeper, darker, and queasier.
Set in Humboldt County, California, Willow Creek centers on Jim (Bryce Johnson, Pretty Little Liars) a Bigfoot believer whose idea of a romantic getaway is to head deep into Six Rivers National Forest in Northern California, video camera in tow, trying to shoot his own Bigfoot footage at the site of the Patterson-Gimlin film.
That 1967 fragment of footage purporting to show Sasquatch striding along a dry riverbed became a key artifact in the cryptozoology community, and Jim dreams of nothing more than setting foot on the actual location where it was shot.
His long-suffering girlfriend, Kelly (Alexie Gilmore, World's Greatest Dad), agrees to tag along for the ride, despite the fact that she thinks Bigfoot has about as much chance of being real as leprechauns
