Really hard for me to boycott the Oscars since I haven't watched them in three decades...

Jack is Back!

Only saw Arrival and I thought it was at least a 4 on a scale of 5. But as an engineer I loved the abstraction of linguistic formulation and calculation. A very interesting concept.

I guess "A Dog's Purpose" isn't eligible since it premiered in late January.

If "Hidden Figures" is still here in Southampton, I want to see it with Frederick.

lyle

But I do feel for all those brace, courageous actors risking it all to...bash Trump. Be Strong, Actorpeeps!

Beasts of England

Shh. Don't tell 'em we're over here...

From the previous thread

New America fundation, snorfle

The idiotic political speeches will probably be the most entertaining part of the Oscars. But I can get clips of those on YouTube. Thus, I'll be otherwise occupied this evening.

henry

I have seen 0 of 9. I'm sure I have something John Wayne to toss in the DVD player.

Fortunate son

If you an Arrival metaphor in Trump you should watch HBOS The Pope for the fantasy in pure fiction.

Fortunate son

If you see..

DrJ

The blocks work across threads. Yay!

Beasts of England

Hidden Figures advances the narrative. Just sayin'...

narciso

That tartan film. From last weekend was wonderfully photographed and well paced.

lyle

Is there anything one can use on an iPhone to get rid of this rash?

jimmyk

The only one I've seen is "Lion," and I also posted here a couple weeks ago that I thought was slow. Still good, just found myself looking at my watch a couple of times.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Hey, is that app only workable in Chrome?

Porchlight

I am the dumbest person on earth. I just mentioned to my husband that traffic was light tonight because everyone was watching the Oscars. He said "oh yeah, I want to watch those."

I self-exiled myself to the deck with my kindle and beer.

Porchlight

What, there's not an app for that, lyle?

DrJ

lyle,

As far as I can tell, the plugin works for Chrome and Firefox and no others.

But why use an iPhone instead of a desktop, laptop, or tablet? Maybe I'm spoiled, but but it is rare for me to be more than ten feet from a "real" computer of some sort.

narciso

Yes, they went a 'little fake but accurate' as they did with a beautiful mind and other films of that genre.

That's a very inventive use of time, in arrival.

Chrome:

jimmyk

DrJ, I do a fair amount of my JOM reading on the subway, so I'm stuck with the iPhone. There is some kind of Chrome app for the iPhone but I have no idea if the extras like the killfile will work with it.

DrJ

Well, I just tried the Firefox plugin and it didn't work out-of-the-box. I'm not going to debug it.

jimmyk, while I have an iPhone, it would be very generous to call me a rookie with the software environment and plugins.

narciso

Its kind of a remarkable story, but then they had to embellish it.

The B's, Bensonhurst, Bay Ridge, Borough Park.

No subway in Brooklyn, even if underground. There are trains.

narciso

I first heard the story in the timeless series.

Thomas Collins

Did you instigate this, jimmyk?

DrJ.

Thanks for letting me know that it doesn't work on Firefox. I was just about to try to install it.

Fortunate son

Jeez..

Disturbing..Trump likes his steak burnt served with ketchup.

Jack is Back!

DrJ,
r
Took some science project materials down to Florida and Frederick ran his first two experiments on the Gel Electropherisis using food dyes. Measured and recorded the results of the macromolecture structure. Started his Lab Book and started his plan for the triptych presentation board.

We may have time now to do a DNA of an onion which seems simple eneough to do within the 2 or more weeks left. Thanks for all your advice and direction. He really appreciates it.

Fortunate son

I had a chef who threatened the manager with a cleaver over ketchup on his filet

I watching the pre oscars so you don't have too

so far lots of black actors getting interviewed, Hollywood making up for oscarsowhite in 15 and 16

gold dresses are in...Trump effect?

lots of boring movie stars trying to be cool

jimmyk

TC, my lawyers have asked me not to comment.

Porchlight

TEH PLAYGROUND WATCHER changed his handle.

Killfile shoots, it scores!

Jack is Back!

narc,

Does this mean Assaunge's days are numbered in the London hideyspace?

lyle

I read JOM about two thirds of the time on my iPhone.

narciso

It may be, the tally dropped a little through the next day.

windansea

Nicole Kidman likes short guys, Keith Urban is same as Tom Cruise

lyle

Snowing like a sumbitch. Like we haven't had enough of that.

lyle

Always thought Nicole was a beard.

henry

Is Al Gore trapped in Idaho somewhere?

windansea

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, both very good looking normally, have have hairdos that manage to make them look fugly

Porchlight

Trump was taken, windansea.

lyle

Watching for the first time ever The Thin Man. Did any actors circa 1935 collect their Oscars bash FDR?

Threadkiller

The obscure Form N-648 requires a doctor to list any physical or mental ailment that would prevent a patient from meeting the language requirements of citizenship.

Porchlight

Wow, first time, lyle. I'm envious.

Porchlight

I believe The Third Man is scheduled on TCM after The Thin Man. Even better.

DrJ

The Thin Man

What a great movie series -- Powell and Loy-- what's not to like? There is no way it could get made today.

Frau  Klein aber O-ho!

The goracle is trapped all right--in his own mind where he is Mr. Fabulous Stud Muffin.

Don't you know Tipper counts her blessings every night that she is free?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

windansea,

Thanks for the info on the gold! I was talking to my friend Jan the other day and we predicted this, based on what we were seeing in some fashion ads.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Frau,

Never, ever will I forget the "Meet Al Gore" video shown at the 2000 DNC. Gore made a point of showing a nude self porttraitof Tipper that she did while she was 8 months pregnant.

Hanging in the hallway of their home where the kids could see it.

She didn't want to show it but he insisted.

Totally creepy.

Here is the link daddy posted on the last thread:

Everyone of these "citizens" needs their voting turnout exposed.

GUS

Miss Marple, after the divorce, I believe Al "the kiddies Pal" Gore donated Titter errrr Tippers' portrait to COMET PING PONG.

windansea

Emma Stone in pretty gold dress, but she looks kinda old and stiff, not very smooth on her answers. The film camera must like her cuz she looks 10 years older on TV

I remember watching that with the ex, Miss Marple. She said 'What the...?' She'd never drop the F-bomb, but she was close.

windansea

Havent seen Meryl Creep yet, that's a plus.

windansea

ok here we go, Justin Timberlake in opening song

windansea

Justin sporting a buzz cut and beard, not a good luck bro

Beasts of England

I'm interested to know how Justin Timberlake resonates with the JOM ladies. Any takers? :)

windansea

Kimmel burms Mel in opening monologue

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Beasts,

Thank goodness you saw it! I was watching and posting on Free Republic at the time, but over the years have lost track with those people and didn't have anyone to verify what I saw!

Was that not the creepiest thing ever?

I have never looked at Al Gore as anything but a really horrible person since then.

Why did she paint the picture?

Why nude?

Why hang it in the hall where her children could see it?

Why insist on showing it on national TV?

Why didn't the DNC say no?

Lots of bad stuff behind the answers to these questions.

windansea

Now he burns Matt Damon hahaa

Porchlight

Not my type and sucky politics, Beasts. However, as pop singers/dancers/actors go (a low bar), he's much more likable than most.

GUS

Do they have
Best Male, Best Female and Best Trannie categories this year??

And.

Where are ABC,NBC,MSNBC,CNBC,CNN etc's transgendered reporters???

windansea

standing ovation for Meryl Creep

Why did she paint the picture?

Golddiggers from unstable upbringings do odd things.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Cary Grant. Clark Gable. Justin Timberlake?
One of these things is not like the others.

Can confirm the killfile does not work on Firefox.

Chick's dig him, Porch - I can't explain it.

[OT] Just tried to get telephone service for a Verizon land line. Their website sucks as do their diagnostics and their non-contacting means of contact.

Has anyone used any of the use-your-cellphone-as-a-home-phone?

The other alternative would be to go to an ugh cable phone.

P.S. Sell your Verizon shares.[/OT]

Porchlight

Well, you're comparing the very best to....not the very best.

Incidentally, Grant and Gable were also Republican.

TM,

You watch more movies in two weeks then I have watched in 10 years. I'm impressed.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Picked this link up over on Sundance's site.

It's a fascinating look at President Trump's dinner last night. Lots of pictures.

By the way, I eat my steak well done, too. I think it's cause I grew up on a farm and got spooked by all the disease talk in health class.

windansea

sbw, there is no need for a land line anymore

DrJ

there is no need for a land line anymore

There is, if one values tone quality and conversation length.

Jack is Back!

windansea,

So are you a sadist or masochist for watching these phonies act like phonies?:)

Soon off to bed but think I'll watch the 2nd half of the Atletico Madrid V. Barcelona replay. Very entertaining match and no Meryl Streep involved.

Porchlight

We keep the landline for the kids to be able to call out no matter what. Also handy to always be able to get a phone to ring audibly when calling home.

sbw

there is no need for a land line anymore

My wife disagrees with you.

narciso

Maherbashi Ali, yes he's,been mostly a supporting player in shows like house of cards (underwood's chief of staff.

On the 'you lost another one' the brits say there's another one of those detainees freed and paid up, Abu mugheera, over in Syria, he was probably following his interest in urban planning.

Don't contradict me, Ralph. I've heard it all before. In the Army, in New York in the theater. Hell, l've heard it everywhere. People say Hollywood when they want to insult you. Well, really Hollywood is just a place where they make a profit. It's a factory town like Detroit or Birmingham or Schaffhausen.

I love movies, always have, studied film at UCLA. If a lefty ahole like Damon or Baldwin or Streep puts in a good performance (and they have) I applaud them for their art. Their politics are a separate deal and not relevant to how I rate the film or their performance.

Jack is Back!

We have our cells bluetoothed to our land line. Most of my land line calls are junk, no matter how many times I register the phone. So, we only answer our cell phones. And every form I fill out I us lee the cell as the main number.

But I am getting at least 3 to 5 junk calls a day on my cell.

These people are qualified for JamesD's house fire.

windansea

If you like robocalls and such keep your landline, I have great sound quality on my cell and also use a voip service. Lately I call international friends using whatsapp, it's free and works great.

Now the furnace is working. Maybe it's possessed.

Well at least you have a legitimate reason. I use to love movies when they were well done but lately its really hit and miss and the actors are not like the classic ones of th

...of the 40's-70's. The Gables, Waynes, Fondas, Eastwoods, Stewarts, et. al.

windansea

Yes JIB but there are still good movies today and lots of the old ones were utter bombs.

Actually I think Hollywood has had far more effect on America's image than all the politicians and state departments combined, for good and for worse.

There's only a few possible candidates

All furnaces are possessed, MM. It is a heat thing. ;-)

What you need is a 7 iron. My dad fixed possessed furnaces, TVs, and a dishwasher with his.

By the way, I eat my steak well done, too. I think it's cause I grew up on a farm and got spooked by all the disease talk in health class.

That's Mrs H's line also although I've shamed her to medium-well.

Captain Hate,

No one will shame me! NO PINK!!

Jack is Back!

My favorite steak is ala tartare with an egg but at Cafe de Artiste it was a quail egg. My food mission in life is to find the best Steak Tartare around the world.

So far a non-discrept restaurant near the Antwerp Central Station has first place but Pierre's in Bridgehampton may be second so far.

windansea

Anyway so far no big political statements, maybe the bosses told their stars dissing Trump equals a 50% loss in market share. Jimmy Kimmel is kind of bombing, they are laughing but they don't really feel it.

Captain Hate

Golddiggers from unstable upbringings do odd things.

I thought Tipper came from a reasonably well off family.
