      A Supreme Court code of ethics is an absolute no-brainer. Since the justices won’t address the problem, here’s a solution: Congress can pass my Supreme Court Ethics, Recusal, and Transparency Act. It’s clearly time. — Sheldon Whitehouse (@SenWhitehouse) September 28, 2022

      Let’s point out the obvious. Russia had no reason to attack its own pipelines. If it doesn’t want gas to go thru them it just turns off the tap. Sabotage to the pipelines weakens Russia’s position, since it will be months before they can offer to turn fuel back on, which they would have wanted to offer during the winter in order to pressure Germany in specif […]

From Dusk Till Dawn

It’s not the best vampire movie ever made, but it damn sure has the best soundtrack

  1. I kind of liked that movie, especially the first half.

    • Probably my second-favorite. #1 is “The Hunger” (OK so I’m dating myself). Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie, Susan Sarandon. Sexiest girl-on-girl vampire scene EVER (even for a straight girl like myself).

      Original twist on the tradition. Don’t know if it’s out on DVD, but if you haven’t seen it, check it out!

  2. Myiq: Did you get the web address for supplies for Capt Spaulding?


  3. Best vampire ever, Kate Beckinsale

  4. I’ve been having the weirdest time, “talking” to a girl I went to grade school with. We knew the same people & I remember her but she doesn’t remember me.

  5. hey y’all! I just got home from an evening with Fuzzy! we had a great time. he’s just a fabulous person and all your ears should have been burning, but in a pleasant way, because we were saying such wonderful things about all of you 🙂

    a puma get-together would really be fun! Fuzzy and i are buying lottery tickets trying to make it happen!

  6. Oh, kiki — that sounds like such fun!

  7. katie, if she doesn’t remember you, she’s obviously suffering from dementia.

    it was fun. Fuzzy is every bit as precious in person as he is online. nice nice guy. we did talk about all the people we’d love to meet. it would be fun to make that happen somehow.

  8. kiki, She has a FAMOUS name so it was easy for me to remember her. Also, while I went all the way through 7th grade in that town we never went back after we moved. So I’d just be one of the kids who disappeared. While they were all the friends I lost.

    On the other hand….

  9. katie, some people just really don’t remember a lot. I was joking about dementia, but……….

    who cares what she remembers? right?

  10. Best vampire ever, Kate Beckinsale

    Bite my neck PLEASE!

  11. I remember her but she doesn’t remember me.

    I’d rather have that than someone I don’t remember screaming “Oh my God! It’s YOU! Aaaaauuuugggghhhhhhh!”

  12. No kidding, MyIQ — and I’m sort of afraid that if I send her a copy of the class photo that I found that she’ll freak out and start screaming just like you said… Oh, well. She’s in California. She can’t touch me.

  13. Speaking of scary movies (and closed sets)…


    • A bit of the script here..

      “I can’t think of a more noble mission than this,” said Cloutier, who took command in July. “We’ve been all over the world during this time of conflict, but now our mission is to take care of citizens at home … and depending on where an event occurred, you’re going home to take care of your home town, your loved ones.”

      While soldiers’ combat training is applicable, he said, some nuances don’t apply.

      “If we go in, we’re going in to help American citizens on American soil, to save lives, provide critical life support, help clear debris, restore normalcy and support whatever local agencies need us to do, so it’s kind of a different role,” said Cloutier, who, as the division operations officer on the last rotation, learned of the homeland mission a few months ago while they were still in Iraq.

      The Homeland Mission: coming to a barricade near you?

  14. best vampire ever — Barnabas Collins!

  15. I’m on a road trip in California on my way to the Southwest.

    There are a whole lot of furniture stores going out of business or out of business. We’ve seen housing developments just sitting — no building — just the model homes. Very unusual — generally one sees large housing developments with new homes going up. I’ve not seen a housing development with ONLY the model homes just sitting. There were no cars anywhere near the model homes — it was a ghost city.

    I’ve read that California is one of the hardest hit. However — Californians still love their cars. Traffic is very busy — even on the weekend — I HATE to even imagine what the traffic will be like during a week day.

    Another thing I’ve seen very few Oblahblah bumper stickers — about 3 in California, and 2 in Oregon. I always consider these jerks with the 0zero marks — the enemy.

    Since I dislike LA traffic and LA on general principle — my husband has navigated a huge detour to get us to San Diego.

    Other than the lack of progress in housing developments and the out of business furniture stores and boarded up stores in strip malls — it looks like business as usual in CA. But then this is how the last Depression was — not everyone was out of work.

    IMHO there seems to be open warfare on the middle class — and there was another time in US history when the middle class was nearly eliminated. A few people were very wealthy and the rest seemed to barely scrap enough to live.

    • on your way to San Diego you will pass the Carlsbad Flower Fields. Take a few minutes and stop they are beautiful. Picture a hill with ribbons of color, and on one side the ocean.



      • Oh I saw those!! When I went to visit friends in S.D. we went up the interstate going to San Juan Capistrano. We saw a thing about those and checked it out. Gorgeous!!

    • Thanks — we are in Carlsbad overnight — so I’ll check them out!!

  16. Great movie music, especially the ones with Stevie Ray Vaughn. Loved Robert Rodriguez when he made his first low budget film El Mariarchi, but haven’t been a fan since he hooked up with Tarantino. Loved Tarantino when he made Resevoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and Jackie Brown, but haven’t been a great fan of his projects since. He always uses great music though. Here’s one track from Stealer’s Wheel from Resevoir Dogs, without the gory scene..

  17. Dusty Springfield in Pulp Fiction..

  18. Al Green in Pulp Fiction..

  19. Ricky Nelson in Pulp Fiction

  20. Chuck Berry’s You Never Can Tell in the famous dancing scene from Pulp Fiction..

  21. A Neil Diamond original from Pulp Fiction. You don’t want to watch the last half minute.

  22. Japanese memories? 3W?

    • Uh huh, just a LITTLE!! Given the number of requisite business karaoke sessions I had to suffer through, I should still be collecting for pain and suffering. Occasionally, it was fun, specially with friends, like this scene in Lost in Translation. Weirdly accurate, that film. Don’t get me wrong, my time in Japan on the whole was heaven.

      Laurie, I have this sense that you may have spent time in Japan yourself at one point. But we can wrestle with that another day. Will leave you to enjoy your bel giorno a Firenze (have one eye on your expression right now on the webcam). Just fishing..

  23. This is not music, but a little known tradition from my old country for today

  24. oops! That was my alter ego. Just wanted to wish women of all ages Happy Martisor!
