I was talking to a patient today that who had an encounter with a determined and angry Rooster. He said he was going to cook that bugger. I told him he'd probably need to cook him like the Colonel and use a pressure cooker.
He mentioned that he didn't have one and would need to buy one.

I told him to be careful with all the recent events he might get put on a gov'ts No Fry List.

Anybody else see Django Unchained?
Lori and I watched it Saturday night.
Quite a flick...2:45 of excellent entertainment, if you can get past the prolific use of the N word.
Which Tarantino defended by saying to the effect that it was not used any more than he supposed it was used in the time and places being depicted in the film.

I think it was Quentin's attempt, in between some shoot-em-up violence, some very intense drama, and some great humor, to display the true ugliness that was slavery and the general treatment of black people in southern America during that period.

The shoot-em-up stuff is pure Tarantino....and you either like his work or you don't. A couple of scenes, I could have sworn he was channeling Mel Brooks. Once of which had me laughing so hard I had tears rolling down my cheeks and had to hit the pause button before continuing. If you watch or have watched the flick, you will know what scene I am talking about.

In any case, the flick won 2 Oscars and the AFI Movie of the Year award.


The film also won a couple of Oscar's. The N word used was the sign of the times back then, and maybe so today. Shoot-em-up violence, Tarantino, style.

I cannot post this????????

I would say what I should say......
But I shall refrain.

The chicks do it well enough.

Oh, say?

I don't know who says you can't post it, although I can't see what your reason is for doing so right now, especially twice in a row.

However, my personal opinion is that this recording sucks. Yes, they can sing (which is more than you can say for a lot of "singers" these days), although
what they usually sing is not what I generally want to listen to. But in this case, while they start off with some admirable harmony, at the red glare they lose the tune and just keep getting farther away from it as they go.

(Not that I'm claiming I can do any better, but I don't make my living by singing.)
