The World Turned Upside Down

Not a Christmas song exactly, but touches on festive Christmas celebrations being banned in the time of the English civil wars, so aprapos for 2020, when the world has certainly been turned upside down.

Let's be content, and the times lament


Upon DiB recommendation I watched and enjoyed Mandy starring Nicholas Cage and Andrea Riseborough.  A psychedelic revenge picture, it starts out strong and gives a nod to those cheesy shot-on-video flicks reviewed in Film Threat in the early 90's.  For me the best thing about the movie is Riseborough, I could have done with a lot more of her. And I wish the ending were trippier, I was hoping for/expecting something along the lines of Ken Russell. I don't think I've seen anything else with Riseborough but I'm a fan now.

ive started two movies today and lost interest both times. one ive seen before. competely by coincidence they star two of the same actors albeit one is more of a cameo as they die rather soon into it. 

any guesses???

just kidding. they are the grand budapest hotel which i thought would be more of an amusing trifle as id seen it before and it is essentially a comedy versus the moderately more psycho-sexual escapes encountered within a bigger spash.

the actors, ralph fiennes and tilda swinton.

in the interim i found time for a short nap after which i was immediately blocked by a thin-skinned espn journalist on twitter for the audacity of yawning at their uninspired tweet promoting their podcast.
