My Foot Still Hurts

It’s been months now. I’m reasonably certain that is plantar fasciitis. I’ve had it before. Well, I’ve got it again.

That’s how I started last week’s show notes blog. This week is much the same. The difference is I’m days away from seeing a foot doctor. They better not recommend acupuncture!

A Compare And Contrast Of Two Classic 70s Disaster Films

Last week, when talking about The Poseidon Adventure (1972), I mentioned that The Towering Inferno (1974) is my favorite of the disaster movies of my youth. I won’t go into all the reasons here (I do want you to listen to the show), but I will give a big reason for my preference.

Arguing.

It’s the difference between arguing and cooperating.

Cooperating

Cooperation is part of both stories, but Poseidon really leans into the arguing. The two main characters spending so much time shouting at each other. In the Tower, the two leads might have had a bit of a rough start, but they get past it and get down to the business of saving lives.

More Sports Talk

Last week, I talked about that crazy game between the MN Vikings and the Buffalo Bills. But since last week’s show, the Vikings have played two games. The first one they got their clocks cleaned by the Dallas Cowboys. It was a classic Vikings post big win let down.

Getting their butts kicked by Dallas on Sunday.

Then came the Thanksgiving Day game against the New England Patriots. It wasn’t as crazy as the Bills game, but it was another come from behind, scrappy win. I don’t know what to make of this team.

Squeaking out another scrappy win on Thursday.

Someone on the internet stated, back when their record was 7-1, the Vikes were the worst 7-1 team in the league. This is a sentiment my brother-in-law agrees with. However, as another internet person put it, that’s better than being the best 1-7 team. That’s a sentiment with which I agree.

One thing is for certain, it has been an interesting season.

When A Picture Is Worth A Thousand WTFs

Just look at that image!

Allow me to rephrase what it says in the graphic: From left to right. Lara Trump (married to Eric and not part of the tangled web, as far as I know), Marla Maples (the first mistress and second wife of Fearless Loser), Tiffany Trump (daughter of Marla and Loser), Melania Trump (second mistress and third and current wife of the Coup Attempter), and Ivanka Trump (half sister of Tiffany and daughter of the first wife Ivana Trump).

What. The. Fuck.

“When your a star, they let you do it.”

LOCK HIM UP!

Movie Recommendation: God Forbid: The Sex Scandal That Brought Down A Dynasty

This documentary, available on Hulu, shows the deep hypocrisy of the wealthy couple running Liberty University very clearly. The school is meant to churn our Christian foot soldiers for God. It has very strict code of conduct standards, which the students must obey at all times.

But! The super-weathly Falwell couple can indulge their every decadent whim. Sure, they have to do it on the sly. They even get to be king-makers. Jerry Falwell Jr. endorsed Fearless Loser and the evangelicals followed suit.

Sigh.
