About Me

My avatar picture is NOT me. It's radio talk show host Michael Berry.

A Riddle.

Some say I'm pointless,
Yet many are obsessed by me.
I have caused heroic gambles
And sown endless frustration.
Uncounted deaths have I caused.

What am I??

Happy Guy Fawkes Day!

You guys been stockpiling wood for the bonfire??

A Song For Halloween.

Death songs were popular in the mid-sixties.

Wouldn't It Be Loverly??

As I understand, Audrey Hepburn is actually singing in this clip, though we don't hear her voice. The producers didn't decide to dub in Marni Nixon's voice until post production. So when "My Fair Lady" was filmed, Audrey believed she would be singing in the movie. In this five-minute scene, she is belting it out.

Walking Dead - Season Seven Finale.

A couple of times this season, I thought "Walking Dead " had jumped the shark. But the season finale made up for it. What an excellent episode.

No, I didn't realize Sasha was dead until half way through the ep when Negan opened the coffin. And the Junkyard Gals - Didn't their betrayal make you wanna pull your hair out?? Then, didn't you wanna stand up and cheer when Ezekiel and his tiger showed up at the last second??`

Two quibbles: What happened to Gregory?? He left at the end of the previous ep, and we assumed he was going to warn the Saviors what Rick was planning. But they already knew, and Gregory didn't appear in the finale at all.

Also, why is Negan still alive?? Seems like just about every character in the show had the chance to off him. Carl missed. Rosita missed. Michonne couldn't get a clear shot. Nobody is THAT lucky.

(BTW, I DO know why Sasha died. It's because Sonequa Martin-Green had the opportunity to star in Star Trek: Discovery, and she dropped Walking Dead like a hot potato.)

Flash Dance!

Flashdance - An extremely mediocre 80's movie saved from total lameness by this scene. As I understand, it's not Jennifer Beals dancing - We only see her in the close up shots. The dancer was named Marine Jahan. Marine was bitter and hostile because she didn't get credited.

Uber.

Anybody have experience working for Uber??

It sounds great. Work when you want. Make good money. But practice doesn't always measure up to theory.

So if anybody knows:

>> How much do you actually make??
>> How many hours do you put in??
>> What problems do you encounter?? (One problem that occurs to me is that many of the people you give rides to are drunk, else they'd be driving.)
>> What is your overall impression?? Would you recommend Uber to someone needing a few extra dollars??



California Oranges Texas Cactus.

This is not really a song. I remember hearing it on the radio when I was a kid. It may be the most unusual record that ever got air play in the days of AM Top Forty Radio.

Long OP titled "60 Hard Truths About Liberals:"

https://www.discussionist.com/1016234948

I'm on board with almost all of that essay. But one of the author's premises bothers me. He assumes that those of us who oppose the liberal agenda and the ramming of socialism down our citizens' throats do so because we're Christians.

For example: "In the depraved thought processes of a Liberal, abortion becomes necessary to guarantee sexual freedom and eliminate moral consequence."

I have no religious or moral objection to abortion. I'm all for keeping it safe and legal. (I'm NOT for public funding.) I do wonder if perhaps repeated abortions have a negative impact on the psychological or physical health of the mother. But since I have no medical training, all I do is wonder.

Also from Da Mannn's post: "A genuine Christian populace will live moral lives and thus they will support governmental policy that encourages individual, personal, moral responsibility ... A morally debauched populace will look to the government to support them and shelter them from their bad moral choices ... for the collectivist Liberal bent on imposing socialism upon a nation, Christianity is the number one enemy ... Christianity must be eliminated."

I resent the implication that only Christians live moral lives and value individual responsibility.

Also: "... In order for Liberals to impose socialism upon a people, they must undermine the ability of the people to govern themselves according to God's moral law."

Is God the only one with a moral law?? What's wrong with the moral law of common sense, responsibility, and compassion??

Also: "If Liberals are successful at transforming America into a totally multi-cultural, i.e., multi-religious, non-Christian society, we will lose our freedom."

Are those our only options?? Do we have to be a liberal nation OR a Christian nation?? Can't we have a secular nation that rejects liberal nonsense in favor of responsibility and freedom??

Also: "Liberals are extremely intolerant concerning Christianity because of its insistence upon personal responsibility and moral absolutes ... self reliance and rugged individualism are traits that are only found amongst moral peoples who come from strong families."

This one I totally agree with.

There's more, but you get my point. There are a lot of us who live a Christian life, who preach AND practice Christian virtues without actually believing.
