Who Watches the Watchmen?

I have to ask if anyone out there is paying attention to this Watchmen movie they have in the works? I am slightly astonished at how good the images look in reference to the book. I know it is another year for this to be released, but I have waited twenty years for this thing and I want it to be good. Hope it is not awful like that crappy "Dune" movie.

Back in it.

Well I gave this thing a year off and it didn't change. So I am back. My job can be so dull that I can't stand it. Part of me wants to ditch this career path and start something new. There has to be something better that requires little training. Any ideas? (note: Suggestions concerning dubious employment that may be regarded as amoral or illegal will be carefully considered.)

Green Day

Well, the St Patrick's day parade is this weekend and once agi'n I shall be attending. Don't really know what is going on for everyone getting there, but my friends love any chance to drink in the street before noon. I will also do my usual trick of leaving before 2 o'clock to limit my view of the social implosion that happens anytime amateur alcoholics congregate for more than a few hours. Years ago a county fair in Ireland became so infamous for fighting that the name of that county, Donybrook, became a slang term for fighting. I wonder what the word Utica will be slang for in the future.

It's been a while!

Ok, I know I have been lax in this posting thing, but I have been a busy boy. Murder mysteries, family responsibilities and some misguided soul has me judging a high school talent show. That will be a hoot. I will post the results. I swear!!! Also I would like to announce to those who know me that I have switched to Verizon but still have the same phone number. This means that you may not need to dread my call unless you just happen to dread my calls. Movie nights will be starting shortly. You have been warned.

Older and worse.

Well another year and I once again don't have a damn thing to show for myself. Not that it is depressing, I think irony is great humor. Fortunately Dickens and ZooBoo will happen soon to occupy my extra time. Being busy can help keep me from being bitchy.
Tonight is movie night and the film is "Sabrina" with Humphrey Bogart and Audrey Hepburn. Has a nice May-December thing going on that makes me feel I have a chance with young women. He was 30 years older than Ms Hepburn and that was very respectable. Ah, the innocence of the fifties, when no one condemned an old codger who's breath reeked of chesterfield's and scotch canoodling with a young hottie. The romance involves sweet talk of rain in Paris and true love. These days all cities smell like ass. I turn it off before he decides to join her on the boat. More realistic. It also makes it more like a comedy!

Delicious Fare from the Broiler

    OK, its hot. I get it. Sweaty wetty drippy pits. Just imagine that I had a point about that.
I think of how it must have been 100 or even 2500 years ago. Yuck, I can only guess how bad the stink was. Everyone poops in a hole in the middle of town and never bathes. Imagine living your life never once using deoderant or wiping yer butt. As beautiful as the great buildings of Rome, Greece, and Egypt were they must have smelled like a broiled turd. Maybe they still do. Never been there.

Most who know me are aware that driving makes me extremely angry. This town only increases that anger to an overwhelming rage. Why- for the love of God WHY can a Kenyan run Around our city (making a small detour through the golf course) in shorter time than I can drive through it in my shiny metal car?? What's with the stoplights every block??? Why does everyplace worth going have only one route to get there?? Why do people and children swarm and play in the street with complete disregard to their safety, and who let grampa drive to the OTB by himself???
