Another Lesser-Free Sabado

King Hippo

Yes, I am still in mah bunker playing Football Manager.  First 5 seasons of my reign resulted in finishing 8th, 7th, 6th, 8th (but won Europa League), 5th (PLUS won Shempions League B).  The last Continental triumph culminated in a 2-1 win over Real Fucking Madrid.  What a simulated life, this.

Bramley Moore Dock Stadium opened in Season 6, and there was much rejoicing.  I also went 3-for-3 in European Cup title matches, with with an August “Super Cup” win over Shempions League A defending champ Newcastle.

Pretend Evertonian life is just the tits, y’all.  I even got Leighton Baines promoted to head coach of my U-23 squadron.  Good old Bainesy.

Since I have a Demmycratic/sane Governor, I will remain under quarantine another 2 weeks (minimum).  I am happy to do my duty as a good citizen.

If governors in the states where these protests are happening actually gave a shit, they would send in the National Guard and never allow anyone who is in that crowd to leave from where they are for the next two weeks because they are all now walking public health threats.

I guess it’s good that they’re chickenshits. I would say it would end up being used against non-Republicans except that the violent police responses to liberal and leftist protests since 2003 is exactly the model of state violence that deserves to be inflicted against people who are genuine public dangers. But remember then for the next time Black Lives Matters members get their heads kicked in and locked in overcrowded cages for 72 hours without access to restrooms or medicine or breathing space like what happened in Baltimore.

This is, like the Tea Party a decade ago, an entirely and purposefully organized Republican Party operation. And like everything the Republicans have done for the last fifty years, it will kill people and no one will care. Their ostensible opponents sure as fuck won’t care. They haven’t in all those decades and never will.

Oof! Episode 2 of this series has more backstory than a Hooters waitress with multiple tramp stamps.

/edited

scotchnaut

I think I found me another Scando series worth the watch on The Netflix. It’s listed as “Gentlemen” but is actually “Gentlemen and Gangsters”, a Swedish thingy that is poorly described as a ‘romantic thriller’. It’s set in 70’s Stockholm and there is a whack of period detail and plenty of dough has been put into production. The first episode doesn’t give much away but you can see some narrative threads developing.

It’s only six hours and change so I’m in. That’ll at least keep me from pining for season 3 of Bordertown for a bit.

scotchnaut

It’s been flagged for nudity and smoking. I haven’t seen anyone smoking without clothes on yet. Yet.

They’re probably talking about the nude brisket scene.

The Swedish BBQ scene is very much under-rated. Have you tried lingonberry-smoked reindeer tri tip? I was eating it before it was cool.

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh
Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

If you are into semi-predictable police procedurals in dreary, depressing locals (there are a lot of these), I binged and enjoyed this one:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9100822/
It was also flagged for nudity and smoking…. and language. The nudity was a fat stabbed guy on the autopsy table and he was not not smoking and cussing! WTF?! The dubbing was awkward in several places, but English is awkward on a lot of US shows. Since it was not in ‘Murica there was a lot of stabbin’ instead of shooting. I appreciate up close and personal murderin’

I tuned into Liam Neeson in “Cold Pursuit” and thought it was another of those typical ‘relative killed/ kidnapped must fix with thousands of dead bodies’ movie and I’m going to watch it anyway, but was pleasantly surprised.

Valhalla is just a matter of time. If you’d like to see something that undermines the Scando police procedural genre you should check out Fallet.

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

Got that one on the list. I like when the detectives are all fucked up in their personal lives (Sherlock Holmes being a morphine addict starting this out in my head when I first read those). Hinterland was also pretty good. The mainstream ones where police departments apparently have million(s) dollar IT budgets and INSTANT DNA analysis are off-putting.

scotchnaut

Crap! I’ve got another that you might like. I’ll try to find it.

I like this series so much because the central protagonist is not a cut-out character. There is a slow, difficult change that he undergoes that is fascinating to watch.

It’s insane how much cash infusion there is right now. I’m going to use this opportunity to reduce debt. I’m not going to Disneyland, ain’t going to any concerts or games anytime soon so take this newly printed and fake money the government is giving you and use it to reduce your debt.

And to support your neighborhood local restaurants.

Saturday is now our local restaurant delivery day. Today we’re supporting Baby Blues Barbecue in Venice.

We supported two places this week. We usually pick Thursday or Friday for takeout now.

Since I still cook my own food for my work days I’ve got Saturday to order local and Sunday is still my full day in the kitchen. We’ve got some great local restaurants and I hope they all survive.
