    :( Healing thoughts to the families and friends of the victims of this horrible tragedy.

  2. Guest2 said on July 20th, 2014 at 3:08 pm

    Prayers to the victoms and families of this awful tragedy. Putin must be made to answer for this despicable act. Are there any world leaders strong enough to stand up to him? I fear not.

  3. Deanne said on July 20th, 2014 at 3:37 pm

    It is an unspeakable horror. What even made me more mad? The fact that these news agencies actually put pictures out on their sites, of dead bodies. Talk about dis-respect of not only the dead, but the family and friends of those whose lives were lost, in this tragedy!

  4. dilateriousdilatante said on July 20th, 2014 at 4:17 pm

    That absolutely includes this administration, moochie coochie, and her VAPID VAMP JEZEBEL!!!
    Can you now imagine if the FIRST Jezebel in the White House and her stupid azz cunner VAPID VAMP JEZEBEL WERE TO RUN FOR AND ATTAIN OFFICE. That is all this country needs is more sheet for Brains losers. Ole Hildebeast the Gnu running the Serengeti Plains with her PHUCKER HEAD HILLBILLY being in the White house. When are you going to see the truth? Its not that the old guard Rhino Repubs are that much better, but way better than this Horse Manure.

  5. WR said on July 20th, 2014 at 6:15 pm

    Most people I’ve spoken to, are positive that Russia is behind this. One can feel so helpless.
    And the murders continue in Palestine.
    Guess all most of us can do is pray, pray, pray.

    I totally agree that we desperately need good leaders; spiritual and temporal.

  6. joanne said on July 21st, 2014 at 11:45 am

    I wouldn’t be surprised if more than one Country is involved. I believe Politics is one big act like a bad hollyweird movie.

  7. dilaterious dilatante said on July 21st, 2014 at 6:52 pm

    This is true. I believe that this will ultimately backfire on Putin. I listened to several people recently stating that Syria, Turkey, and Egypt, and to a smaller degree Iraq, are all being held together by the Al Saud families money. That the Al-Saudis do not like Obysmal Obummer whatsoever, and they do not really like Putin either. The current view is they will have political power in this power vacuum because they are paying all of the bills. They are recognized for negotiating with the Pakis for a WMD in case Iran actually builds a WMD. The Al Saudis are Sunni, and the Iranians are Shia and considered to be Apostates by the Sunni, which make up the majority of Islam.

    WR: You have been talking to a lot of people who actually know nothing and have been instigated by the mainstream media. Russia has nothing to gain from downing a Malaysian airplane. Do you think they want to provoke sanctions? Really? So why would they do it? Only the Ukrainian government and the US profit from this situation. It is a pretext to bring NATO troops to Ukraine. Have you heard about the Spanish air traffic controller who said he saw two Ukrainian military jets close to the passenger jet with one of them shooting missiles at the jet? Do you know why the plane was directed over the war zone when it usually took a different route? The Ukrainian government has confiscated all air traffic control recordings and refuses to publish them.

    I have my own view of the world and I’m happy with it. All I can say is we need a big hug from the Sun. Which makes me wonder if souls burn. What do you wonder about with a screen name like that, if to personal, ignore.

  11. WR said on July 23rd, 2014 at 4:07 pm

    Please tell us more. I’ll tell the people here, and note their reaction. Thanks!

  12. WR said on July 23rd, 2014 at 4:08 pm

    Oh, and they will want to know why Russia has nothing to gain.

  13. dilateriousdilatante said on July 23rd, 2014 at 6:05 pm

    why do you “THINK” we are in the position we are in??????????????????????????????????/
    I will tell you why, most of you barkiers, you cunners were more than willing to lick the cocksuckler of TOP PHUCHER BAG SCIENO SCIENTOLO CRUISE, cocksuckering sheet hole phuckering peen eater.

  14. WR said on July 23rd, 2014 at 7:33 pm

    Too early to hear from some I’ve contacted, re: The Malaysian airplane post. I did hear from two.
    One said, (after I relayed the message) that it’s a scam e-mail. He’s a young, white collar worker. The other, a mature woman of some accomplishment said to wait for the contents of the black box; and that should hold information about the diversion of the route they took.

    Hope to hear more.

  15. lizzy said on July 24th, 2014 at 10:20 pm

    That is if they actually get the real black boxes.

  16. lizzy said on July 24th, 2014 at 10:24 pm

    From what I have recently read here, we just missed a major solar flare from the sun. It was a very serious flare. We missed it fortunately. The commentator said that one day we should expect to get hit by one. I heard in 2012 we were hit by one. I guess it wasn’t as serious as the one just reported. I guess that the one just reported was extremely serious.

  17. lizzy said on July 24th, 2014 at 10:32 pm

    Recently, one of you posted a picture of William Hague as a young man standing next to Margaret Thatcher. Then there was the picture of Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, and William Hague together. I was wondering if any of you noticed how big William Hague’s head was in proportion to the rest of his body. Then you see the older William Hague with a head that is proportional to his body. Something here appears really strange. I don’t think they are the same person. A person’s head just doesn’t shrink. I seriously do not think his body suddenly grew in proportion to the rest of him. What do all of you think?

  18. dilateriousdilatante said on July 24th, 2014 at 10:42 pm

    Go away for a day and guess what, one of you has actually been paying attention. I was wondering when someone would pick up on those pictures absolutely not looking correct. There wasn’t any photo shoooping back then either.

  19. lizzy said on July 24th, 2014 at 10:45 pm

    So you see what I am seeing then.

    Too many interruptions, so haven’t heard from some, lately. A few said to watch CNN.

  23. WR said on July 25th, 2014 at 1:54 am

    Heat wave, here. Summer means lots of outdoors activity, usually.

  24. Burt said on July 25th, 2014 at 4:09 pm

    Hello is anyone there?

  25. blueberry said on July 25th, 2014 at 4:35 pm

    I just read that the marriage with Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux is off again. What the tabs are reporting is that her friends do not like him at all.

  26. WR said on July 25th, 2014 at 6:03 pm

    The media’s at it again. They dangled the carrot of Brangelina’s upcoming wedding. Turns out it was for a movie.

  27. beccabecks said on July 26th, 2014 at 1:54 pm

    Lots of stories about strange things up with flight MH17. Can anyone one say media manipulation via the government ???? Flight MH370 departed Kuala Lumpur at 12.41am on 8 March 2014, which would be 3-7-2014 here in the states. Malaysian Airlines flight MH17, which departed from Amsterdam on July 17,2014 with destination to arrive the next day at Kuala Lumpur . Connect some dots people!!!! Media was started as propaganda. PROGRAMMING…They want you to believe what they tell you just like your Hollyweird people.

  28. berthabodacious said on July 26th, 2014 at 7:01 pm

    I saw that old photo aj with that big gigantic vein sticking out of her forehead and it was very ugly.

  29. berthabodacious said on July 26th, 2014 at 7:02 pm

    it was in one of the magazines at the grocery store. I couldn’t believe how big it was. It was really strange, really odd.

  30. berthabodacious said on July 26th, 2014 at 7:11 pm

    From what I read arteriovenous fistula can be caused from many things including facial injury. It could also mean heart or liver problems.

  31. Keane said on July 27th, 2014 at 3:55 pm

    Angelina hearts William Hague who hearts Maggie Thatcher who hearts establishment paedophile rings…. I wonder how she will try to spin her way out of this one?

    Great move for an opening salvo into your much hoped-for political career!

  32. WR said on July 28th, 2014 at 6:37 pm

    Last report I read about the JA/JT nuptials, is that it will be a private function down in Mexico. It is her favorite vacation spot, and very few are invited. (A big contrast to the wedding to BP.)
    It will happen next month.

  33. WR said on July 28th, 2014 at 6:38 pm

    Saw at the supermarket, a tabloid with the headline about Angelina Jolie’s kids running wild. Something we foresaw way back then.

  34. WR said on July 28th, 2014 at 6:42 pm

    OT; Something highly unusual happened in Southern Cal. A young man was killed by lighting. And there were several others who were hit. I think at least one is in danger of losing her life. Also, another young man was hit, but was soon back at doing whatever it was he was doing.

    We usually have cloud to cloud lighting, and lots of it around this time of the year. Rarely, cloud to ground.

  35. WR said on July 28th, 2014 at 6:49 pm

    Some of us mentioned that protruding vein bulge a couple of years ago. The pictures disappeared.

  38. WR said on July 30th, 2014 at 2:39 am

    The lawyer who represented Michael Egan, who sued Bryan Singer, has withdrawn from the case. From what I understood, they offered Egan a settlement, which he turned down. And if the case had been stronger, the lawyers could have fought for a much, much bigger settlement. No unshakeable proof of molestation was presented by Egan and his lawyers. So it looks like clear sailing for the defendant here on in.
    Phew! must have been the reaction of more than one celeb.

    I don’t understand either.

  41. WR said on August 1st, 2014 at 3:09 am

    This heat wave here in So.Cal. is the worst in a few years. The kids aren’t as affected as their elders. And news came out today that this is the worst drought in California history. Millions have moved here for the sunny clime. But oh, the price! Traffic headaches; littering everywhere; crime; housing nightmares, etc! Much more than in other states.

    Tempus Fugit! August here already. Can’t go to my favorite hiking area because of the hot spell. So wanted to see some snakes besides rattlesnakes. Live near a canyon; and the crowds are encroaching becaue of the “developers”. What they developed most are headaches for us who moved here when it was quiet and sparsely populated. But when the sun goes down, a very few animals come from the canyons. And one can fairly often smell the odor of skunk in the neighborhood.

  42. WR said on August 2nd, 2014 at 12:15 am

    An acquaintance I trust implicitly in such matters, told me privately that he saw a UFO the other early morning. He had awakened and since he lives by a window with a spectacular view, he glanced outside. There it was, this huge unmistakable object. I will try to get more details from him.

    You see, I too saw a UFO some years back. But this one was very high in the atmosphere. It was colored orange. It slowly sailed across the sky, and all of a sudden made a split second maneuver way up there. I instinctively knew that a weather balloon couldn’t make such a wide arc in that amount of time.
    Later, I heard that hundreds of witnesses were calling the police to report it. They had attended a baseball game, and saw what I saw. But that was just one of three sightings on consecutive nights.

  43. WR said on August 2nd, 2014 at 12:26 am

    So far, no one in my complex has dared to talk about the Ebola virus.
    Wow, are the destructive incidents piling up!
    Plane disappearances. Crashes.
    War in The Middle East.
    Invasions of countries by illegals.
    Diseases. The Ebola virus.
    Environmental catastrophes. Global warming.
    So much more that’s stirring up global unrest.

    One good thing happened. The rise of employment here in the U.S.
    My acquaintance, the one who saw the UFO, doesn’t see anything that can’t be fixed. Everything’s cool, according to him.
    Here’s hoping he’s right!

  44. WR said on August 2nd, 2014 at 4:54 pm

    RAIN, SWEET RAIN! Not much at all, but it’s finally come!

  45. WR said on August 3rd, 2014 at 5:46 pm

    He told me he awoke at 2 a.m. As I said, he has a terrific view of the water and the airfield. He said the UFO hovered over the water, and moved toward the north. He said it was a color of blue-green. The size apparently got past him. Only said it was large.

  46. WR said on August 3rd, 2014 at 5:50 pm

    He is an ex-Catholic. Once was an altar boy. Became very rich at one time. Knew a lot of famous people. Guess his business acumen failed him. Wound up almost homeless. Still, old acquaintances want to hook up with him. He remains proud, even though he knows he has hit the lowest of points.
    Irish, he is!

  47. WR said on August 4th, 2014 at 12:07 am

    Current book I’m reading, is DROPPED NAMES, by actor, Frank Langella. And indeed, there are some big names to drop. We don’t agree about everything, of course. I’m now at the George C. Scott reveal.
    OT: I once had a chance to rent a room next door to GCS in Beverly Hills. The woman who was kind enough to drive me to there was livid when I turned it down. I did so, because I did not trust the renter. Besides, who would want to run a gauntlet of security police every time I returned from classes. Btw, the whole adventure didn’t turn out so great, anyway.

  48. WR said on August 4th, 2014 at 12:10 am

    I recommend the book. Lots of clear insight into the lives of an actor. I say “lives” because they seem to have more than one. There are some you didn’t know were really monsters, at certain times.

  49. WR said on August 4th, 2014 at 12:38 am

    Oh, there is a mistake in the book. He tells that the late actress, Jo Van Fleet was Oscar nominated, for support in her role as CHL’s mother. Didn’t happen. She deserved it, even though it was a cameo, rilly.

  50. WR said on August 4th, 2014 at 12:38 am

  51. WR said on August 4th, 2014 at 11:43 pm

    Jon Voight acquaints anti-war activists regarding Gaza, with anti-Semitism. He accuses certain actors of it. Now, he seems to feel anyone who is outraged by the massacres in Palestine with being the same type of people who would stand by during the massacre of innocent jews back in the days of The Holocaust.
    So far I haven’t heard of any actors who would set him straight.

  52. WR said on August 7th, 2014 at 12:15 am

    It appears that Katie Holmes is happy to be free. From what I read, TC is checking up on her with stalkers. And we know they can be very dangerous.

  53. WR said on August 7th, 2014 at 12:16 am

    The general public just eats up whatever the media feeds them. This is what we have been warned about all along.

  54. WR said on August 7th, 2014 at 12:23 am

    When I say general public, I mean people who aren’t very educated. People who didn’t have parental or guardian training. Trainers who would make sure that we know what it is the media is trying to feed us.

  55. WR said on August 7th, 2014 at 12:26 am

    Well now, certain rabbis and jews have expressed deep sorrow over the massacres in Palestine, JV has been silent. No accusations from him toward those dissenters.

  56. WR said on August 7th, 2014 at 12:29 am

    Even if no one sees my posts, I have been having fun, here. Will continue, as the newest thread has been infected.
    Tomorrow, then!

  57. WR said on August 7th, 2014 at 11:07 pm

    So I told my good acquaintance, “Welcome to the Club!” as he again related his UFO sighting experience of a week ago, on Tuesday morning. The several listeners had never seen anything out of the ordinary, so couldn’t relate. When I told about the time I saw the unexplained phenomenon in the distant sky, he agreed wholeheartedly that it was the same thing he witnessed.

  58. WR said on August 7th, 2014 at 11:17 pm

    We also discussed the first missing Malaysian airliner. The highly astute poet, artist, “J” said matter-of-factly, that it’s at the bottom of the ocean. The rest of us don’t think it is. J said that it was the pilot’s suicide is the reason it’s down there.

  59. WR said on August 9th, 2014 at 3:13 am

    Well, finally talked to my neighbor of sorts, who lives not far away in this busy place. Well, Well, Well!
    He told me he saw the UFO, as well. In fact, he said, he saw it for a week, on consecutive nights. And it was in almost the same location that D saw it. ( I’ll label this guy, P.)

    P and I had a long, long talk, outside. It was mellow weather at first, Then, as it got dark it started to cool. By the time it got too cold for me, he had to have his walk and his cigarette. But part of my reason for leaving were the two rats which ran by him. He didn’t see them, but they were at least a foot long with their tales. Yukkk! It upset my stomach and I went inside.
    So located and talked to D. We discussed the serious issues of the day. He is as optimistic, as P is pessimistic. Very interesting stuff they talk about. More later, as it’s past midnight. There’s a neighborhood estate sale starting at 8 a.m. tomorrow. I know I’ll be there too late for the prize goods, as I am going to be late. Nevertheless…..

  60. WR said on August 11th, 2014 at 1:38 am

    The heat wave came back. Seemed hotter than before, esp. since we had a City Fest, and my neighbor spoke highly of it. But it was just too much to stick around.

  61. WR said on August 13th, 2014 at 2:07 am

    So, a nice person took me to the canyon. Alas, no snakes. I’d have settled for an ugly rattlesnake. Oh, vell!

    Hollywood has a superstition that Death Comes in Threes.
    Robin Williams.
    Lauren Bacall.
    Ed Nelson.

    The latter was featured in the Peyton Place Tv Series.

  62. WR said on August 13th, 2014 at 2:17 am

    So many trees are dying here in this drought-ridden area. Sycamores; Oaks, and other kinds. Walked past newly-cut trees that were deemed dangerous enough to cut down. Firewood. Speaking of that, there was a fire up in that part of the city, today. Very smelly!

  63. WR said on August 17th, 2014 at 1:15 am

    My good acquaintance, “D” is still in a depressive rut over RW’s suicide. He was surprised to learn that Robin was in the beginning stages of Parkinson’s Disease. Then he dropped a bombshell: He couldn’t help laughing as he described the position the body was found. Of course I was rather surprised. It just didn’t jive with his grieving process. But we don’t always grieve the same way.

    I remember The National Enquirer published photos of a laughing Jackie Kennedy Onassis, at the funeral of Onassis. Later, learned that some people do grieve in that manner, genuinely.

  64. WR said on August 17th, 2014 at 2:36 am

    Was invited to a showing of “The Hundred Foot Journey”. I found it satisfactory for several reasons.
    I enjoyed the acting; especially by Helen Mirren. But the lead male was excellent, as well. The supporting performances by the young lovers were refreshing. As it did not introduce the director during opening credits, I mused over the stylish direction, and the fact that he got such rich performances out of his actors. It turned out to be Lasse Halstrom, who was at the helm.

    The audience seemed to have enjoyed it.

  65. WR said on August 17th, 2014 at 7:28 pm

    We were discussing show biz, when one of our attendees at the meeting asked why there are no Native American actors. I replied that there are a few. Then, the response of how the film industry is over 100 years old, and who are those N/A actors, anyway?

    I said it’s because show-biz is a mind-set that clashes with theirs. N/A tend to be spiritual. Even if they have people who drink themselves to death, their culture is mainly based on the real, and not the artificial.
    Further, I added, they’ve been given many chances to act in movies. And it’s members of both parties who try to give them opportunities.
    Also, show business is a lot of hard work. It requires discipline. They must be punctual, dedicated and give the employers their money’s worth. All too often, I’ve read that N/A actors do not take their work, seriously.
    There is far too much ignorance about what it takes to be an actor.
    I told them that all too often, the parts go to non-Indians. And no matter if they look like Indians, they completely miss the soul of the Indian. Instead, they settle for the stereotypes in their imagination.

  66. WR said on August 17th, 2014 at 7:32 pm

    I asked my Sicilian acquaintances if they knew that Iron Eyes Cody had not a drop of Indian blood in him. In fact, I told them, he was Italian. They were amused.

    They were already aware of the many white actors who played Indians throughout that 100 yr. history.

  67. WR said on August 17th, 2014 at 7:44 pm

    I think there are very few white actors who pulled it off. One of the very best is Frederic Forrest, who had a strong showing as a modern Indian, in “When the Legends Die”. Unfortunately, the movie wasn’t a success.
    So if anyone wants to see one of the best Native American performances by a non-Indian, that would be my recommendation.

    Believe it or not, Canada has given opportunities to their natives, they couldn’t get elsewhere. Doesn’t mean the Indians there do not experience prejudice, however.
    The late Chief Dan George, and the current Adam Beach, are just two Canadians who have done very well.

    Currently, the most prominent Native American actor, is Wes Studi. But, as I say, it takes a lot of ambition to make it in Hollywood. It’s still this way, after 100 years!

  68. WR said on August 18th, 2014 at 12:34 pm

    So now I’m slowly reading 2 books. One is loaned to me, by “D”. I’m mainly going over familiar territory. Positive anecdotes about the super-star, so far.

    The other is about Alaska. Just beginning. So far, so good.

  69. WR said on August 19th, 2014 at 10:18 pm

    I purposely slowed down on the Alaska story, because I want to linger. Was unpleasantly surprised at the way the four men treated the rebellious native woman. Hoping it will end in a more civilized manner.

  70. WR said on August 19th, 2014 at 10:26 pm

    According to a report today, the pope declared that God will “give him 2 or 3 more years”. Now , if I recall correctly, it was widely discussed in prophecies. The seers predicted that the current pope will either be the last pope, or the next to last one. Then will come the destruction of the planet. It seems so far-fetched, come to think of it. Back them, it seemed plausible, but the closer we get, it seems to not make sense.

    So will he be martyred, as some prophesied?

  71. WR said on August 21st, 2014 at 2:07 am

    Some “fair weather” friends are fine with you until you make your faith known. It has happened to me. But we only live one life, and I must be true to my beliefs. Why I said this, is the inevitable happened. “D” my acquaintance, went too far in attacking my faith. In addition, he was always trying to get me to join him in a disgusting, to me, activity. I tolerated him because we hold the same political views. But I finally had had enough, and told him the activity he described was “disgusting”. I won’t elaborate, here. Instead, I will still be friendly, as long as he doesn’t overdo the hatred for my beliefs.

  72. WR said on August 21st, 2014 at 2:09 am

    Oh, and I don’t preach, or proselytize. I wouldn’t be a good preacher at all. But if someone asks, I direct them to a good source of information.

  73. WR said on August 21st, 2014 at 2:12 am

    Tragedy has hit the heroine of “Ada Blackjack”, as well as her sole companion, who were left behind, as the rest of the five-person party took off to try to find their way back to civilization.
    It was hard to read. Now, I’m hoping she will be rescued, soon.

  74. WR said on August 21st, 2014 at 2:18 am

    In the Elizabeth Taylor story, one reads about her devil-may-care attitude, and impulsive decisions, and other destructive behavior that was considered crude. It sounds as if a current someone is copying her. The only thing is ET didn’t try to destroy her legally married “rival”. Instead, the two eventually divorced the male object of their affections and re-kindled their friendship of long ago.

  75. WR said on August 22nd, 2014 at 1:43 am

    Robin Williams was overwhelmed by health issues. Not only was he fighting alcoholism; he had had a secret nervous breakdown. He also was in the beginning stages of Parkinson’s Disease. His friends say that he was battling cancer. And he was in a very stressful situation regarding his career.

    May this super-nice guy finally find the peace that eluded him in this crazy world!

  76. WR said on August 22nd, 2014 at 1:46 am

    Getting close to the end of “Ada Blackjack”. There is so many issues displayed in her story, as well as her companions. I should finish it by tomorrow. I don’t think I’ll get the big surprise in the book I am so hoping for. Dang!!!

  77. WR said on August 22nd, 2014 at 3:13 pm

    So I decided to attend the early morning meeting of the minds. Well, well, well…surprise! Several had decided to stick around to a later time than usual. When I arrived, I noticed that the coffee had been almost all consumed. Half a cup, left. Oh, vell!

    “D” was there; and as usual, it was all about him. One couldn’t finish a sentence without him immediately having a story to top yours. It was quite a pronounced effort; or, was it? It just comes naturally, to him. The other attendees noticed it, and remained polite. Well, they’ve tolerated it for the last couple of years.
    A newcomer is now among them. He cannot penetrate the barrier of “D”s ego. Interesting!

    “D” told me that the newcomer, had the attitude that he was above the rest of them; that he, the newcomer, was a PhD, and so forth. So, D delightfully told me about how he had to inform the newcomer that there were highly educated people living in this complex. But, really, D was gloating about how he nipped his potential rival’s influence in the bud.

    I plan to watch The Emmys this Monday, if all goes well. Would like to see who the new stars are. As time flies, some of us can’t keep up with the new names. And the shows they’re on are on some channels that we can’t afford to subscribe to, considering the offerings are usually just one prominent show. Also, my cable channel has been lax in fixing my connection, despite the exorbitant price of a “package deal”. And so I can’t get Netflix.

    It does give me a chance to watch the old movies. There was an evening of Thelma Ritter a couple of nights, ago.
    The commentator said that in reality, Thelma Ritter, unlike the characters she excelled at, was prominent in society.

  79. WR said on August 24th, 2014 at 4:48 pm

    Yes, I finished “Ada Blackjack”. A story that felt so familiar. There is tragedy, throughout.
    I would highly recommend it to serious readers. This is not an entertaining story. She was a special woman, who fought tremendous odds both in primitive, and “civilized” society.

  80. WR said on August 24th, 2014 at 4:59 pm

    Heard about the powerful earthquakes up in Northern California, and Chile. That was the reason “D” got in touch, since it was his home turf not that long ago.

    Getting my unit prepared for the painters who will be here by 9 a.m. So will be back tomorrow evening.

    Didn’t know that Sir Richard Attenborough was in his 90s. A gentleman, and a brilliant actor. I particularly remember him in “The Great Escape”, and “10 Rillington Place”. John Hurt, one of my favorite current actors, matched RA all the way as the victim of his evil character.

  83. WR said on August 26th, 2014 at 1:24 am

    So I did watch the Emmys. Don’t know who has the time to watch hundreds of shows, so they can reward them. But it’s the performers that made me watch. Good to see Kathy Bates, Woody Harrelson, and others. I thought Matthew McConaughey had the Best Actor trophy in the bag. Same with Cicely Tyson, in the Best Actress race.
    Shows you how much I know.

    It’s interesting to observe the different types of people at our meetings. There are power plays going on. The type of persons who act like they’re the reason the universe spins at all. Kinda like “the sqeaky wheel gets the grease” saying. Narcissism. So unless they are treated as royalty, they tend to ignore “their lessers”. Sort of funny, because these people could leave tomorrow, and not be missed.

    I don’t believe Jennifer Aniston is going to get married, after all. The engagement is now 2 yrs old. I think I said it before, about her probably not getting married, after all.

    There’s an interview published today, with a talk show host, where she appears to be spinning her status as a perpetual bride-to-be.

    My dearest friend, Barbara, and I have a lot of fun when we again meet. She has almost the same tastes as myself. She is younger, but that makes it more of a reason to keep up.

  90. WR said on August 27th, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    And here’s an odd thing. I had a friend, Greg, who moved out of the area several years, ago. He worked for The City, and retired at a young age. He sold his condo, which was in a desirable location, for two hundred fifty thousand dollars. Then, he moved up north. First, he found a Filipino lady, online. He went over to the Phillipines to court her, after a while. They married, and she is pursuing her college degree.

    Wow, I went on, there. ANYWAY, Greg has the exact eyes, in looks, as Greg. I am frequently reminded of Greg as I talk to Barbara.

  91. WR said on August 27th, 2014 at 2:05 pm

    I think we meet next week, I’ll ask Barbara if she had the usual childhood upbringing.

  92. WR said on August 28th, 2014 at 1:01 am

    Meant to say that Barbara has the very same look as Greg, around the eyes. It’s uncanny, because their eyes are close to the same color. And their age is not too far apart, I think.

  93. WR said on August 28th, 2014 at 1:07 am

    There must be something to aural lights around a person’s being. Some people can actually “see” a person’s aural color.

    I noticed it in my life, and often wondered how in the world do Russians gravitate toward me at certain times. And the same with hospital workers. I never tell them my ethnicity, nor my past career.

    I worked in hospitals much of my life. I am a quarter Russian.
    That’s why the topic of auras.

  94. WR said on August 28th, 2014 at 1:13 am

    Maybe that is what a certain poster told us about her childhood self looking at the funeral of the slain President Kennedy, and when LBJ appeared onscreen, proclaimed: That’s the man who killed the President!
    Forgive me, I forgot which of our then regulars posted that startling bit of information.

    Or when I heard a little girl saying to her mother, “Mama, I don’t like that man!” as a stranger walked past them.

  95. WR said on August 28th, 2014 at 12:50 pm

    Well, now that Brangelina made it official, perhaps the loons will stop attacking Jen. Now, the tabloids will headline the fake story about Jen going into seclusion now that she’s lost PeeWee forever.

  96. WR said on August 28th, 2014 at 12:51 pm

    Everything about Brangelina is suspicious, to me, for one. It’s all about a fake image. Their whole history is about fake imagery.

  97. WR said on August 28th, 2014 at 12:55 pm

    And lies are ingrained in their psyche, it seems. So ingrained that it appears as the truth to them, and their loons. Why loons are so into them, is something we’ve discussed; ad infinitum.
    To reiterate: A person tells an outrageous lie. Good people are initially outraged. The liar repeats and repeats. The protesters start to dwindle. Some now believe the lies. Others give up, telling themselves, what can they do? And the liars triumph!

  98. WR said on August 28th, 2014 at 3:09 pm

    On TMZ, they headline that actor, Jon Voight WASN’T invited to the wedding. But he wasn’t exactly broken up about it. According to the site, he said that he couldn’t go anyway, as there was the Emmy affair to keep him occupied. He was a nominee for supporting.

  99. WR said on August 28th, 2014 at 3:10 pm

    The other news included Joan Rivers’ heart stopping during throat surgery. She was rushed to a hospital, and is in critical condition. I think they said she is 82 years old.

    Heat wave continues.

    Asked people here about Brangelina. No interest.

    So D and I got together at the corner coffee shop, which happens to have a Jewish owner; and who happens to be a masculine gay.
    Then R joined us. Well, it got to be even more interesting, as R is almost as much into himself, as D is to himself.
    But R loves to hear humorous anecdotes. So we have to tell him a few. So here we have 2 guys vying for the most attention of we, three. D is the one who usually gets to hold court, so to speak. It became somewhat of a game. Who would win?
    Well, R did; and here’s why. R knows I know a lot about black, female singers from the era of early rock ‘n roll.
    So he got me in a lengthy conversation about black female groups. “Which group sang this….” And so on.
    D was at a loss. And it was fun to witness him humming songs by white singers, as he tried to take over the attention.
    But it all ended in a friendly kind of way.

  101. WR said on August 30th, 2014 at 2:12 am

    Liars have their die-hard followers. Hitler is a case in point. Even today. They have shrines to Hitler in parts of the world.
    Charlie Manson certainly had followers who killed for him. And reports from jailers that was getting bagsful of mail. Nowadays it would be e-mail.
    Lies gets a performer pretty far in Hollywood.

    From what I’ve read, lies are not a good foundation in a spiritual structure. Lies tend to come apart when there’s a flood of truth to counteract them. And the one we’ve been told since childhood; Lies are so unreliable because we have to tell another one to cover the last lie. It becomes, as they say, a terrible tangled web.

  102. WR said on August 30th, 2014 at 2:32 am

    Jon Voight started out as a Catholic. He was on Broadway. I believe it was “The Sound of Music”. He fell in love with one of the cast members. Laurie.
    He wasn’t the first choice for “Midnight Cowboy”; Michael Sarrazin, was.

    Jon Voight won The New York Film Critics award for Best Actor. He was a newcomer who was guided brilliantly by a British Director, John Schlesinger.
    He looked like a strong bet for the Best Actor Oscar. But someone intervened: Columnist, Sidney Skolsky. Now, the latter had a column in The Hollywood Citizen-News, which was quartered in the heart of Hollywood. There were a handful of other columnists in that paper, which was read by anybody who was eligible to vote for the Oscars.

    Sidney Skolsky had a long history with Oscar. He claimed he named the statuette, Oscar. (Bette Davis, and The Academy President, Margaret Herring, also claimed to have first named the award, Oscar.)
    Anyway, Skolsky started a Readers Section in his column. And he published letters during the Oscar voting period. SO, Skolsky started publishing pro-John Wayne letters early on. Letter after letter from fans rhapsodizing over Wayne’s performance in “True Grit”. Some of the writers focused on “Wayne is overdue” angle.

    Jon Voight sensed what was going on. He was asked about his Oscar chances, and he graciously conceded the award to Wayne, even while the voting was in progress.
    Dustin Hoffman, also a newcomer, and co-nominee for the MC, was strong with the critics, but not as strong as a front-runner.

    John Wayne did win. It was, in fact, a Lifetime Achievement award.

    Well, here we are, again.

    I daily had a tete-a-tete with one of our tenants. He was a heavy smoker. The kind who would finish one cig, and have another ready to light from the finished one. Very congenial person. No enemies..type of person.
    I used to tease him about his habit, initially. No warnings; just would sing something, like “Smoke, Smoke, Smoke”, by Tex Williams. (A #1 selling country/pop disk from the past.)

    We were all surprised to read that this relatively young person died, yesterday. No details; just no memorial service set. Saw him 2 wks ago, and he looked the picture of health.

    Re: the funny anecdotes, D told this one:

    The lawyers got into a heated argument. One called the other, a stupid, know-nothing.
    The other quickly retorted, that his opponent was an amateur, who argued like a girl.
    The judge intervened: “Well, now that you’ve both been identified, let the proceedings continue.”

    Whereupon, I had to add my two cents to the same story:

    Two lawyers were going at each other.
    You are nothing but a second-rate counselor, said the first.
    The second got back, with: And you are nothing but an ambulance chaser; Nobody in this court has less to offer!
    “Gentlemen, please,” said the judge, “You seem to forget that I’M here!”

    I am in shock! As I was perusing Blind Items, I came upon a reveal of an OLD HOLLYWOOD blind item. Seems there was an actor who never rose above B-status, despite being in at least 3 well-regarded films. He married 3 beautiful actresses, after he divorced his first wife. The blind continues that he was gay. Those beautiful actresses found out right away when he didn’t sleep with them. He turned to photography as a means of expressing his artistic side as his acting career became non-existent. He allegedly got his big break by allowing himself to be seduced by his then, agent.

    He would hire male escorts, it said. And he contracted the Aids virus. But his professionals covered that up by telling that he had had lung cancer.

    And who was it? Only the actor I’d tell anyone who would listen, was “the most beautiful male actor to ever work in Hollywood”: John Derek.
    I didn’t have an inkling. I would never believe it if any of my movie buff, Hollywood insider acquaintances told me.

  113. WR said on September 19th, 2014 at 1:50 am

    There is another Blind Item that is easier to believe; and it’s about Pee Wee. It claims that he is into something I can’t say here. It’s on Naughty but Nice
    What puzzled me is that it says he’s “100% heterosexual”. Now, they’re using TNE’s tactics it uses with TC; i.e. hinting around; using buzz words; just skirting around the reveal.
    If true, the actor is NOT 100% hetero! Methinks they’re using those tactics because if they didn’t, they may get the rough treatment.

  114. WR said on September 19th, 2014 at 1:52 am

    It’s cooled off a bit. Now, if it would just rain and rain and rain!

  115. WR said on September 19th, 2014 at 6:46 pm


    The 3 movies that John Derek made which are considered above average, are:

    All The King’s Men. Oscar winner as Best Picture.
    The Ten Commandments. Oscar nomination for Best Picture. Doesn’t hold up so well.
    Knock On Any Door. Powerful story. Bogart has the lead, in a departure from familiar roles.

    A popular film with an all-star cast: Exodus.

  116. WR said on September 24th, 2014 at 1:08 am

    Would you believe I asked an older fella, and he doesn’t remember John Derek? But he does remember Ursula Andress, Linda Evans and Bo Derek.

  117. WR said on September 24th, 2014 at 1:09 am

    One more week of September. But to me, it seems like a slow month. Nevertheless, I see Christmas commercials on television.

  118. WR said on September 27th, 2014 at 7:45 pm

    C-Dan blind item:

    OLD HOLLYWOOD – This former B+ list mostly movie actor once STARRED in one of the most famous movies of All Time was killed.
    A man was convicted of the crime, but according to the tabloid-selling former lover of a deceased A-list celebrity, it was the A-lister who killed the actor after he threatened to go public with their gay love affair if money was not forthcoming.

    The first part of the BI leads one to think of Sal Mineo. But, what and who is the “tabloid-selling” former lover? Did this person sell info to the tabloids? If so, what?
    So this informer is either a male, or a female. He/She is the lover of the deceased celebrity, (it doesn’t say, “actor”).
    So the would-be-blackmailed “celebrity” is not only capable of murder, but has actually committed murder.
    Now, if he killed the actor, (Sal MIneo), how did he do it; as compared to the news reports that a black male in a Michigan prison bragged about killing Sal Mineo? The same man who was later convicted?

  119. WR said on September 27th, 2014 at 7:52 pm

    So, what was “one of the most famous movies of all time” that he STARRED in?
    Mineo’s most famous movie, was “Rebel Without A Cause”. He didn’t star in it. He supported James Dean.
    Mineo rec’d an Oscar nomination for a supporting role, in “Exodus”. The movie starred Paul Newman. But, “Exodus” is not as famous as “Rebel Without a Cause”.

    Since Dean is dead, who were the other deceased cast members who could qualify as “an A-lister?” The only one who comes to mind, is Dennis Hopper.

  120. WR said on September 27th, 2014 at 7:53 pm


    Hopper would qualify as “an A-list celebrity” rather than as an A-list actor.

  121. WR said on September 28th, 2014 at 3:38 pm

    This blind is hard to believe in, because the clues are too vague. Mr. Hopper spent most of his life as a married man. He had 3 daughters and 1 son. He was married 5 times. (Michele Phillips was his wife for just 2 weeks).

    So who could be any other suspects? Unless C-Dan has a reveal, there isn’t much to go on.

  122. WR said on September 29th, 2014 at 2:48 pm

    Now, it’s reported that BP is claiming he couldn’t attend because of work. Of course it would help if one were invited. But he has to spin it to dilute the message that he wasn’t. Ha!
    It doesn’t spoil the good feelings one has about the wedding.

    A few more items about Brad on certain sites; probably designed to try to steal the thunder from GC. Not a chance! GC is too charismatic and popular. Anyway, BP is reported as willing to tell us all about how he, BP, is ready to tell more about HIS wedding. So typical of BP! Narcissism!

    Was off a day. It’s Friday, that the weather person referred to; not today.
    But today was a rough day in other ways. Ran into a light-skinned racist Latino. Unfortunately, I had to go to him to pay a bill. Now, had I known before hand who it was, I’d never have gone in the store. Couldn’t see anybody else, as he was the only one at the desk. He sucked as a clerk. Tried my best to tolerate him. That’s the last time I will go to him to pay my bill.

    I’ve talked to others about this. They have had similar experiences. Glad to know I’m not the only one, but sad to know they had to have had similar ones. Probably it’s the tone of the times; yet, no one can get away with this type of behavior, forever.

    Rant over. The good outweighed the bad, today; and so it is!

  131. WR said on October 2nd, 2014 at 2:09 am

    “D” and I had a long talk, today. We both agreed that we can’t identify most of the current celebs. He has absolutely no interest in Brangelina. This is true of the other guys I talk to on many subjects. They do mention that BP is not too old to sustain their interest.

  132. WR said on October 2nd, 2014 at 2:13 am

    I did mention that I read the other day, that there were 30 or more candidates for the Best Actor Oscar nomination.
    However, he shudders at the price of a movie-going experience. He feels ten dollars is too much. And if he saw all the movies, he’d spend money that he doesn’t have.
    As for me, I’m in the same boat.

  133. WR said on October 2nd, 2014 at 2:19 am

    I had high hopes for Jennifer Lawrence to be a thoroughbred in the acting business. Then she went and did those nekkid pics for all the world to see.

    I had hopes for Ben Affleck to be mature enough to overcome last years snub for Best Director. If one recalls, he won all the prestigious awards for Best Director; before and after he was snubbed by the Directors Branch
    of the Academy.
    Kept my fingers crossed that he would keep on the high road.
    Then, he goes commando for his newest movie.

    Guess I’m way behind the times!

  134. WR said on October 2nd, 2014 at 2:26 am

    “D” met many big name actors and actresses in his time. He owned a fine night club, and that’s where he saw so many celebrities. But, he learned from his beloved papa, to not be star-struck by celebs. He says, and I feel the same, that they’re just like you and me. Well, there’s the exception that they wanted to be rich and famous.

    He also met them when he operated shows spotlighting prize dogs. He knows his stuff about prize-winning dogs.

  135. WR said on October 2nd, 2014 at 4:04 pm

    Saw a tab pic of BP, today, along with the headline about BP gaining weight. What do they expect, anyway? After a certain stage of life, everything starts going south. Age 51 is not the age of a spring chicken.

    It was once again reported that BP refreshed our memory about him! him! him! Yet again, he’s resurrecting the story about how bored he was in his marriage. Of course he was bored. When a person is bored, it’s because THEY’RE BORING!
    So he got out of the marriage, and guess what! BP is still BORING!

  138. WR said on October 3rd, 2014 at 1:44 am

    Well, at least JA has been accomplishing something. And her charity work is done quietly; and not done to boost her image, or career. And like I said, JT has more manhood in him than BP!
    No wonder BP seems to be trying to convince himself that he’s the happiest he’s ever been. Trying too hard!

  139. WR said on October 20th, 2014 at 1:00 am

    And now I read that CDaN is a phony. Well, at least his Blind Items are. So, it’s back to erasing all those blinds that “revealed” the late John Derek was strictly gay. I didn’t believe it when I saw it, but thought why would anybody lie about someone who is long dead? Well, according to many bloggers, CDaN did, with other Blind Items.

    That most probably means the one about suspect, Dennis Hopper, is also fake.

    Guess will have to delete CDaN from my reading list.
