flower power

Must go dig in the dirt today.

Must get some annuals in the ground.

Must rewatch Game of Thrones tonight. What an awesome episode Sunday was, “Battle of the Bastards”. Good to see the Stark kids still can’t stick to a plan or communicate with each other.  Or figure out that sometimes you don’t want to run in a straight line. Duh. 

And what do I have to do to see one of these episodes in anything but ultra-dim? I’ve got a superb LED television, brilliant, yet every episode seems to be filmed at night. Especially the scenes in the north. Maybe I can try cranking up the brightness ahead of time. Change the viewing temperature from Cool to Warm or something. But the dim, kind of gritty pixels look is what they use. It’s almost pointless to watch this show in HD. Dudes, get some damn film. You are old enough to remember film, aren’t you. Mr. Director?

Playing with the ambient light using graphics tools ... there really isn’t much that can be done because there is no hidden detail to reveal ... “it’s all dark” even though this is afternoon in the show




I knew the bailout was coming. I knew this 3 episodes ago. But was I the only one thinking it was going to be “ ‘the eagles are coming, the eagles are coming’? seems a bit trite, doesn’t it?” What with the Arynn forces being from the Eyrie [ an eagle’s nest ] and all. And that was JRR’s rescue tool from his Battle of 5 armies and this was GRR’s rescue tool from his Battle of 5 armies? [Wildlings + Starks + Arynn vs Bolton + Karstark]. At least he didn’t have to wait for their coming on the fifth day and at dawn look to the East. Gak.

To be fair, she could not have known her own personal cavalry was about to arrive with creepy Littlefinger. But she managed to meet with him before they charged, right, because the camera cut from the battle mayhem to show the two of them standing together on the far side of the field. And Snow? He still knows nothing! “Don’t fall into his trap!” “Don’t do what he expects you to!” “Don’t let him provoke you!” So of course, you know what happens ... after failing to save dialog-deprived littlest little brother, he attacks the whole enemy army. By himself. D’oh!!



But huge kudos for the dead pile scene. I thought I was going to have an asthma attack, feeling the same kind of panicked crushing sensation as the camera drowned under a wall of bodies.

GoT rip off

Game of Thrones … spoiler alert, sort of ...

“Hold the door”? Seriously? Hold the door? Three Eyed Raven Bran uses his super power to time jump inside his own head, and implants this one simple command in the head of “Willis”, fries his mind for the rest of his life, only to have him sacrifice himself 20 years later. And that bought Raven Bran what, about 30 seconds? Big help, seeing as he can’t walk and has to have skinny little Meera drag him around now. What a waste. What a let down. What a smarmy way to tie up loose ends and write out extra characters when you’re a burnt out author and you’re under the gun from the TV studio to finish telling the story in 6 more episodes that you couldn’t manage to tell with 5 books, 7,000 pages, 5 million words, and 20 years. Way to go, GRR Martin. And you killed the dire wolf too, ya bastard.

I would have had Raisin Raven Bran command him to bar the door with skinny bitch Meera. But then we’d be calling Hodor “Skibbige” instead. But at least he’d get away, and Bran would still have his body slave.

Ser Ian = true love. Wanna bet dragon’s blood cures greyscale?

someone for everyone I guess

Subtitle: EWWW. Just EWWW.

On Wednesday’s The View, co-host Joy Behar gushed over Bernie Sanders’ performance at last night’s CNN Democratic debate and she proclaimed that the Socialist “aroused” her.

The liberal ABC host gushed that Sanders was so “menschy in that moment like a real guy” when he defended Hillary Clinton from scrutiny over her e-mail scandal and insisted that she “find[s] him to be eye candy, not ear candy, eye candy.”

Behar continued to swoon over Sanders as she eagerly said “I like an old Jewish guy who’s a socialist. That’s my type of guy. Everybody is talking about O’Malley and how hot he was, but to me Bernie is hot.”

Not to be outdone, co-host Michelle Collins showed her affection for former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley and his “rock hard man things”:

“There are some pictures, ladies, everyone gird your loins. That O’Malley, let me tell you something, if I wasn’t voting with my head, I think we know who would be getting my vote. I am in love. Look he his abs. That’s no dad bod....Those are rock hard man things.”


Um, was there a debate last night? I didn’t even know.

Obama Built It

We just finished watching the new season of True Detective. What a dark, confused, mumbled, morose mess, dragged along with half a dozen of the worst plot devices and several rancid McGuffins. Come on. The bird head, the exploding Caddy, the giant shootout with the cartel. Occasionally gay biker cop Paul - the possible Black Mountain war criminal and all around ultra-bad gunslinging cat-eyed ninja - survives a 30:1 shootout in the dark tunnels under the city, sensing the bad guys in the dark and blasting them ... runs for miles in the twisted maze of tunnels, finally comes out some exit door at total random and doesn’t see Lt. Burris standing there 3 feet away in broad daylight, who then casually shoots him from behind. Twice. And there were plenty of others. Cheap effects and dead ends. Really poor writing and characters you can’t really like or hardly even care about. And it just got more depressing every episode.

But in the end ... I think the theme was that in the end, nobody wins when the evil criminal conspiracy is the government itself.  Makes me think of Obama. Yeah, he built that.

Saving grace? Kelly Reilly as Jordan Semyon, a good woman of a comfortable age married to a not-so-good guy. Smart, tough, realistic. And bless her minimal costume wardrobe, which consisted of 2 little black dresses and a cream cardigan.

Late Night Grilling

Taking my chances here with a nice chunk of tenderloin. About 2lb I think. 8 minutes a side over low heat, with the grill heated to a touch over 400? We shall see.

Anyway, we played a bit of a drinking game while watching the final episode of season 3 of the Western mining camp adventure show Deadwood. Lucky me, I drew Tolliver, and she drew Swearengen. We debated having to drink whenever our chosen character said any variation of “fuck” or “cocksucker”, but settled instead on drinking whenever they did. Alas the episode focused mostly on Swearengen, so she had to down about 6 shots, even though I gave her a break of 1/2 for her to every 1 of his. Tolliver hardly put in an appearance. If we went by dialog, both of us would be dead - the series set records for profanity. It’s a pretty rough show, full of murders and debauchery and constant swearing. And that was it for season 3. And the series. No real closure to the story arc, but several more cherished characters killed off. It sure was involving though.

We also finished off Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, an odd little miniseries fantasy about an alternate England in the Napoleonic Era wherein magicians have great power, but eventually have to use it to fight the evil Fairies from The Other Side. Simplistic, but some nice CGI from time to time.

Summer TV. Whatchu gonna do? Now it looks like we’re down to following Under The Dome again, a Stephen King adaptation that should have run its course in one season but has been extended to last forever. IMO, not only has the shark jumped, but it did a triple backflip through burning hoops and spiked the landing. At least Dome’s got 3 redheads worth looking at. Mostly.

Otay. So the Filets Mignon should be ready to eat now. And it’s only 10:30.

Bye Bye Clarkson

Jeremy Clarkson Gets The Sack

Crap.

BBC not renewing ‘Top Gear’ presenter Jeremy Clarkson’s contract

Jeremy Clarkson won’t have his contract renewed as host of “Top Gear” after he apparently busted his producer’s lip and verbally abused him, the BBC announced Wednesday.

Clarkson, who hosted one of the most-watched television shows in the world, was suspended on March 10 after what the British broadcaster previously described as a “fracas” with producer Oisin Tymon on March 4.

Wednesday, the BBC released the findings of an internal investigation into the incident.

Ken MacQuarrie, who conducted the investigation, said Tymon had been “subject to an unprovoked physical and verbal attack by Jeremy Clarkson” at a hotel in North Yorkshire after a day of filming. “During the physical attack Oisin Tymon was struck, resulting in swelling and bleeding to his lip,” he said.

The physical attack was halted after about 30 seconds by the intervention of a witness, MacQuarrie said, but Clarkson continued to use “derogatory and abusive language” for a sustained period of time. MacQuarrie said Clarkson made a number of attempts to apologize over subsequent days and had reported the incident to BBC management.

Co-host Richard Hammond tweeted: “Gutted at such a sad end to an era. We’re all three of us idiots in our different ways but it’s been an incredible ride together.”

Fans had earlier expressed outrage at the BBC decision to suspend Clarkson.

Even media baron Rupert Murdoch commented on speculation that Clarkson would be sacked, posting a tweet Tuesday night in which he described the presenter as a “funny man with great expertise.”

BBC - Get over Yourselves

A Fracas!

Corrosive loud mouth idiot Jeremey Clarkson suspended (yet again??) from Top Gear, the only show on BBC that actually makes them money.

Yes, but being a corrosive loud mouthed idiot is why we love him, and why the show is such a success. Take a Chill Pill, flush PC down the loo, and get out of his way.

Top Gear presenter Clarkson suspended over ‘fracas’

The BBC said it has suspended Jeremy Clarkson, the controversial host of popular motoring programme “Top Gear”, after he was involved in a “fracas” with a producer.

The outspoken 54-year-old presenter helped the show become the world’s most popular factual television programme, with 350 million viewers a week in 170 countries.

But he was on his final warning after a string of controversies including accusations he used racist language.

“Following a fracas with a BBC producer, Jeremy Clarkson has been suspended pending an investigation,” the BBC said in a statement. “No one else has been suspended.”

Magazine Radio Times said Clarkson was being accused of aiming a punch at a male producer in an incident that occurred last week but was reported to the BBC on Monday.

The broadcaster had earlier said “the BBC will be making no further comment at this time.”

No sooner had the suspension been announced than fans of Clarkson set up a petition to the BBC to re-instate him.

The online appeal, reading “We the undersigned petition the BBC to reinstate Jeremy Clarkson. Freedom to fracas”, quickly gained 30,000 signatures.

Clarkson has yet to comment on the incident, but in February he indicated he might have been unhappy with the show by tweeting:

“Wanted: new presenter for Top Gear. Applicant should be old, badly dressed and pedantic but capable of getting to work on time.”

...

“Top Gear” is one of the BBC’s biggest brands and is a major earner for the broadcaster, though it has been dogged by a series of scandals.

The show’s executive producer Andy Wilman described 2014 as “an annus horribilis” after accusations of racism and an incident in which the show’s crew were driven out of Argentina.

Protests broke out there over the number plate of a Porsche, “H982 FKL”, which was interpreted by some as a reference to the Falklands War between Britain and Argentina in 1982.

Clarkson was among those forced to abandon their vehicles after an angry crowd pelted the crew with stones, but the BBC denied the registration plate was intended as a deliberate provocation.

Most damaging for Clarkson have been accusations of racism while reciting an old nursery rhyme in leaked footage, something the presenter denied.

The show was censored by British broadcasting watchdog after a Clarkson comment as an Asian man crossed a bridge that was deemed racially offensive language by Ofcom.

“Top Gear” previously got into hot water over its depictions of Albanians, Romanians and Germans, and the BBC apologised to Mexico after the show described Mexicans as “lazy” and “feckless”.

Top Gear is one of the best things on TV, period. And Clarkson’s online essays are just as scathing and raucous. And simply superb.

I’m just relieved this was merely a fracas. Had it been a frumpus, the MOD would have been called out, and the entire cast and crew sent off to the Rainbow Ribbons Re-education Retreat.

Let’s face it, when you’ve got your own Lego kit and have shown up on Family Guy you’ve arrived and should thus be above the mundane BS that rules the rest of us little people.

What a bunch of berks.

Take My Money, Please

After spending a couple of chilly hours raking out the garden, Drew goes online to do some early holiday shopping research ...

image

I want your gear!

Unbelievable. There isn’t an official Comedy Central authorized line of Brickleberry stuff. Not even t-shirts.

Because, damn, I want a Malloy sleeper, ladies petite. Or a Brickleberry T, men’s 2XL.

They don’t exist. What’s going on? Is Comedy Central a bunch of anti-capitalist commies? Don’t they know how easy it would be to send a few cells over to Cafe Press and get the ball rolling? It’s, like, free advertising.

Brickleberry is a fantastic cartoon. It’s so wrong. So wrong, wrong, wrong ... that it’s just right!

Let me give all the fake outrage enthusiasts a head start on their Change.org petitions, their Facebook protest groups and their calls to television execs concerning Comedy Central’s new animated series Brickleberry. Here are the things about which you’ll be outraged: the making fun of a child quadruple amputee, animal abuse, overt racism (against blacks, Mexicans, Colombians and Koreans), jokes about AIDS, jokes about abortions, jokes about alcoholism, making light of the Klu Klux Klan, the implied imminent rape of a bear cub, jokes about rednecks and making fun of war veterans. Allow me also to apologize in advance if you feel I’ve missed anything once you’ve watched (for research purposes only, of course) the series premiere on Sept. 25 at 10:30 pm.

On his Comedy Central show “Tosh.0,” the comedian Daniel Tosh sometimes seems to be trying his very hardest to offend us by making the most sexist or racist comments possible. But he gets away with this because his targets, usually people who have made fools of themselves on viral videos, have set themselves up for ridicule. More importantly, his jokes are witty.

Although Tosh is the executive producer of the channel’s new animated series “Brickleberry,” it has neither of those redeeming qualities. The writers seem to think that being “outrageous” — by invoking stereotypes about minority groups or by going for gross-outs — is funny by itself. But the wearying onslaught of pointless, witless, mean-spirited jokes will depress viewers, with the possible exception of 12-to-14-year-old boys.
...
Other bad jokes have little to do with the plotlines. Denzel says he likes dating old ladies because “they’re sweet, loyal, and they can take out their teeth.” Steve throws an amputee Cub Scout into a lake, presumably letting him drown. The show opens with a wide shot of wild animals having sex, including some practices that used to be called unnatural acts.

You betcha, lowbrow humor in its rawest form. And no one is safe. Which is why the show is simply awesome. Comedy Central, Tuesday nights at 10:30. It’s not for children.

Bad TV

No no no no no. It’s bad enough that Hollywood hasn’t had hardly a new idea in a decade. It’s worse when they steal a great show from the UK and then screw it up in the process of Americanizing it. But the worst is when they just do a remake because they can, even if it has the same cast as the original.

Coming To TV This Fall: FacePalm, oops, sorry, I mean GracePoint

Last summer, there was a fantastic murder mystery mini-series broadcast on the UK’s ITV called Broadchurch, broadcast over here on BBC America. It starred David Tenant (ex Dr. Who, him with That Hair) as ailing Detective Hardy, who took a full 10 episodes to solve the murder of a young boy, found dead on the beach, in a very small town. The story leaks out and the media goes wild. He’s assisted by a female detective, recently promoted for PC reasons, and this is her first case. We watched, it was some of the best TV drama ever. The show cleaned up at the BAFTA awards, but got the snub here in the USA.

This fall Fox is bringing out Gracepoint, a 10 episode murder mystery about a young boy, found dead on the beach, in a very small town, with the crime investigated by ailing Detective Hardy, played by David Tenant (trying to do an American accent). The story leaks out and the media goes wild. He’s assisted by a female detective, recently promoted for PC reasons, and this is her first case.

Yeah, I get it. Olivia Colman, who played the female detective in the original, is primarily a talented actress. Not pretty enough. So she’ll be replaced by some big haired bubble boobied bint of arm candy for the American rehash. And they’ll have to add a couple of car chases and some gun play. And the proper quota of non-whites in the crowds.

Aside from that, it looks like a total clone. Insider reports say that the first 2 or 3 episodes are nearly identical to Broadchurch, but then the plot diverges to a different ending. Which means the killer was either the pedophile pharmacist, or Nigel, the dead lad’s dad’s assistant. 500:1 it was creepy beach lady. 1000:1 it was Rory (ex Dr Who junior companion) the creepy minister. I’m going with Nigel. Who’ll probably be renamed Steve or something hipster and cool and West Coast.

Go rent the Broadchurch disks. Or stream it. Or watch it at one of those online sort-pf-pirate sites. I can guarantee that the original will be better than the juiced up carbon copy.

Immersion Viewing

"In rehab they make you face who you really are.”

“Who are you then, Jesse?”

“I’m the bad guy.”




Our 3rd week of immersion viewing of AMC’s bulk rebroadcast of Breaking Bad. They put on 6 episodes in a row every Sunday night and we tape them on the DVR. We’re into Season 3 at this point. Now that we’re past the “Jane” story arc, I guess we can say that “Q” is off the radar.

This show rocks. And nothing beats immersion viewing 3 or 4 episodes at a go, especially when you can FF through the commercials. 4 “1 hour” episodes, 2 hours 50 minutes and done. Sweet.


And a huge h/t to AGT for that link, for when I can’t wait for next weekend and have to peek ahead.

Breaking Bad, From The Beginning, Again

This is it folks. Time to set up your VHS or your DVR.

Starting tomorrow at 5pm, until 1am, every Sunday night until October, the AMC channel will be rerunning every single episode of the hit TV show Breaking Bad. In order. All 62 episodes from all the seasons.

This is my chance. I never saw the show when it was on, not once. And my cable company (Xfinity) has entered into some kind of satanic deal with Amazon and Hulu, in that the On Demand thing is now nearly worthless; back episodes and entire seasons of popular shows were once available for free, but now the damn cable company wants me to pay $2.99 per episode. Like bloody hell I will. I already paid you bastards a ton of money in the first place, enough so that your airing advertisements during the shows is a slap in the face insult. This latest move just ads more insult to injury. So I’m going to figure out how to rig up an HD Tivo or something. Some kind of recorder I can plop a few terrabytes of hard drive in that will record half a thousand hours of high def. Because I’m not paying you again, ever.

Meanwhile, I’ll have to figure out tonight how to use the cable company’s built in DVR, and cross my fingers that it can hold 62 hours or more of shows.

Before you Call Saul, you Better catch up on Breaking Bad. AMC announced today that it has slated a binge-a-thon of all 62 episodes of the Emmy-winning drug drama for later this summer. Beginning Aug. 10, the show will air every Sunday night from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. before wrapping up on Oct. 5 with the series finale. The episodes also will feature never-before-aired interviews with both the cast and crew, as well as behind-the-scenes footage and commentary.

Well, I can put up with a bit of post-show commentary. As long as it doesn’t force the episodes to be cut to run in a given time length (shorter). But if they get in the middle of the show, all film-school like, as if their TV show was some artistic masterpiece ... then I’m gonna be really, really cheesed.

Wow, that was easy. I did it all online. Kewl. Programmed the DVR from my PC. Gotta love that convergent technology stuff. And the commentary stuff is in 5 minute chunks after each episode. So that’s fine. Phew.

Bestest GoT Ep Evah!!

The Purple Wedding

Fans of HBO’s feudal war epic Game of Thrones had their moment of orgiastic schadenfreude last night with the conclusion of King Joffrey and Queen Marjory’s wedding.

A few pictures below the fold capture the very best parts. SPOILERS ahead, if you haven’t seen the episode yet. It will be one I watch again and again. Heck, I might even have to figure out how to copy it to DVD.

A Week To Go:

Now That Spring Is Finally Here, “Winter Is Coming” Once Again

Best damn non-spoiler spoiler for HBO’s Game of Thrones ... this season’s endlessly longed for, LOUSY SHORT TEN EPISODE SEASON starts next week. Hey, they spend millions on the sets, boobs, film it in locations all over the world, costume up a cast of thousands, boobs, and build a plot that’s so involved and twisted it would make a Minotaur dizzy. Plus boobs. So is it any wonder they can only afford 10 episodes a year? Oh, and boobs.

This clip is pretty funny, but real fans of both show and book can name at least a third of those other extra characters. Mostly. Did I mention the boobs?

R + L = J ... perhaps. So will then J + D = the true Child of Light? Or would we be right back to an Ep 1 kind of incest? Because you know it’s coming ... even with what happened at the end of Book 5. And they’d be perfect together, Ice and Fire. Duh. After all, “What is dead may never die”, right?
