    Election 2020

    And transparent. The gloves are totally off now, there is no pretence of doing the right thing or following conventions or even rules. It feels as though the stakes are so high, the Republicans are in a situation where they could lose the presidency, be destroyed in the senate and fall further...

    Election 2020

    In a nutshell - yep. This is tragic in so many ways. This scrabbling around and manoeuvring straight after her death is so shameless and undignified.

    Yeah he got the highest possible accolade for lack of valour and not being a sucker, the coveted Purple Bell-End.

    Election 2020

    Obviously this is a completely different situation... I mean Obama wasn't planning to cheat in an upcoming election so don't try and compare them you demonrat scum.

    Trump

    Yesterday there was a specific and credible accusation of sexual assault made against POTUS - in the world in which I grew up that would have dominated the news for months, now it's pushed off the top in five minutes. Wag the Dog was on telly the other day - seemed so quaint with people actually...

    The Grateful Thread

    Band I know little about but have been brought up to hate on principle like all right-thinking people... I like Hawkwind a lot though despite/because/regardless of their inferior musicianship... but I played em (kinda) to start the radio show last week...

    I can see the link you're getting at here. Never saw it before presumably cos it was so big and expensive and explosiony. Not exactly the same of course but they do have the same furrowed-brow self-importance which is justified to some extent by the quality control they exert on their films but...

    The New World

    Yeah very true. Also very trite. But yeah there ARE some powerfully involving scenes in that film... I just wish he'd still had the power to bind them together into a whole at that point. Some good scenes don't make a film sadly.

    Don DeLillo

    Don't know The Names. Not read him for years in fact. Maybe I should go back and reassess - or would that be a retrograde step?

    Did you ever see The Leopard (Il Gatopardo) where the lead speaks a different language from the rest of the cast and so it's only available dubbed so he matches them, or the other way so they match him. Common for their to be no shared language in giallos etc but not with a big art film.
