    Let's never forget what today is the anniversary and what June 6th signifies.
    I know no one here fought in that civilization turning day, not even me, but we don't have to go that far back of in our own families or someone close in another one, who laid it all on the line that day.
    Getting rarer and rarer to find guys thzt are still alive from then...

    Just finished "Leave the Gun, Take the Cannoli," a 2021 book about the making of the first Godfather. Couldn't put it down once I started. A lot of interesting stuff I'd never heard.

    Great book.
    Interesting that Coppola and Robert Evans never got along in life, but Coppola paid tribute to him at the besmirched Academy Awards, finally, and admitted the film could never have been made without him.
    If you loved that book, dont know if it's your cup of tea, but " The Making of Midnight Cowboy" is another fascinating book in the same genre.

    There are bots lurking on this board constantly, huh? I only just noticed that feature that tells you they are online.

    Orwell, baby.

    rube put those there to fuck w you
    so two days ago i fired up my tundra and heard the unmistakable thump of a critter in the flywheel
    didn't fall out and couldn't see it in the engine block but by yesterday i could smell it
    drove it to the school making sure to hit every bump trying to dislodge whatever it was to no avail
    left the hood up overnight mostly to air out buy always hopeful and was able to spot a cooking squirrel in a space i couldn't get to of course
    my mechanic loves me so i figured it would be his problem in the morning
    after calling him and explaining what he was in for i went to jump in the truck and no more squirrel!
    going to look at the cameras and see if i can spot what ate it but i suspect a buzzard
    just not sure it would have gotten under the engine to take the cadaver but whatever ate it sure did since that's the only way it could have happened
    at least that's what the evidence shows
    think i'm going to shoot some lysol on the spot and hope the sun bakes out the rest of the death smell then i'll hose it off

    So, my partner says it was a cartoon ( which it was), but I told her that it was based on a puppet show popular before her time. "I only remember a cartoon"she says...amazing what a decade or so does to perspective.

    Holy shit! A Bob Clampett allusion ...

    Youtube has it all, but damn little Beany & Cecil ... too bad.

    I remember one bit. Some kid with a line in the water, and the Cecil asks what he's doing ... he replies, "I'm nuclear fission under my chemistry!"

    Gotta love those cold war references.
