Dimland Radio Quiz Time
I had a little fun with the answer, but it was actually Snooki. Here is a YouTube clip featuring the gems of wisdom from this simple Jersey girl. You can catch the quote at the 42 second mark.
I did my best to describe a photograph that popped up on the Bigfoot Facebook page. I include that image here along with a close-up and a picture of a bear. The bear image also comes from Facebook. Part of what I was getting at was how easily a bear could be mistaken for a bigfoot. I also noted that, as quality of evidence goes, the photo of bigfoot sucks. (That’s a scientific assessment.)
Enough With The Guilt Trip, Man
Then I talked about this white guilt thing as it pertains to Thanksgiving. On Thanksgiving, when I checked my Facebook, the first thing I was greeted to was an image about of the Native Americans have been fighting terrorism since 1492. Oh, brother! Can’t we put the guilt trip aside and just enjoy the day holiday?
A Musical Interlude
I had a bit of spare time to fill before getting to my movie recommendation, so I played a song by George Hrab. I played his song ‘Fifty Stories’ off his 2010 album Trebuchet. Geo’s music can be purchased here or on iTunes.
Movie Recommendation: The Searchers (1956) Possibly John Wayne finest performance. He plays slightly against his usually screen image. His character is Ethan Edwards who returns home after wandering the countryside following the defeat of the Confederate forces in the Civil War, the side he was fighting for. Shortly after his return, his brother’s family is massacred and their youngest daughter taken hostage. The film follows Ethan in his Ahab-like search for his niece. Question is, if he finds her what will he do? Kill her or bring her home?
