Okay, what kind of party are we going to have? Should we do a "Movie Night" with some games and food themes?  Any ideas?

Yes, I was wondering ... Are there gonna be party hats? Party favors?
More importantly, is there gonna be a game of "Pin the Tail on the Mule"? ;D

Or at least ... a game of Clint Trivia? :)

But a Movie Night would be nice, too!

It also helped that the drug he was running was cocaine, not heroin or another opiate. Of course cocaine ruins lives too, but I think its "image" is better in the popular mind just now. At least we're not experiencing an epidemic of cocaine-overdose deaths.

Domestic Total as of Jan. 20, 2019: $96,929,689 (Estimate)
Foreign Total: $4,500,000 as of 1/16/19

Grand Total: $101,429,689

When is the party? Or do we wait for the domestic to go over a hundred mil?

Oh, I agree, AKA. That was one of my main problems with the movie (really, only my only major one). It was as if at first the money made everything OK again ("You came here because you're broke and don't have anywhere to go? Get out!" "Oh, now you have money and want to pay for nice things for us? We love you!"), and then they couldn't be bothered to blame him for his crimes, because now he was their dear grandpa again.

It used to be renovating shows now it seems to be decluttering shows are the in thing and I’m hooked. Last year we watched becoming minimalist this year Consumed and Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.

I have so much stuff and no need for most of it, it’s all going. Selling, donation, whatever it takes. 😎


When you're through, come on up here and declutter my apartment! ;)

Eastwood News / Re: Verna Bloom RIP

The Times finally got around to printing her obit yesterday:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/11/obituaries/verna-bloom-dead.html

Talking about her part in Animal House, Tim Matheson told the Times:

Quote
Mr. Matheson recalled in a telephone interview that Ms. Bloom “didn’t look down at what we were doing and jumped right in.” He added: “I was already in awe of her because I’d loved her in ‘Medium Cool’ and ‘High Plains Drifter.’ Here was this serious, accomplished dramatic actress doing our silly little movie. Her commitment was just remarkable. She was fearless.”

I just finished watching this. I'd never seen her before, but I liked Tippi Hedrin. Like Aline, I think I preferred her classier, understated, and less sassy personality, to Grace Kelly's performances, but they're both very attractive ladies.

AKA, you have seen her before ... in Marnie.

She has 84 credits as an actress in the IMDb, but she is best remembered for these two Hitchcock roles at the beginning of her career.

Trivia Games / Re: A-Z of Eastwood.

That wasn't what I was expecting, but that's great! ;D

Though I think Clint only worked with Spielberg as a producer ... that is, Spielberg was a producer on several films directed by Clint.

Next person has to think of a T:)

Trivia Games / Re: A-Z of Eastwood.

Are we stuck on all the trivia questions again? Somebody's got to be able to think of an important film director in Clint's career whose first name starts with S ... or whose last name starts with S ... ;)

I took it to mean that the new boss was going to be less indulgent in how his unusual employee would be treated.

Also, it shows the audience that these guys don't have their guns just for show, or skeet shooting: they are very capable of killing people in cold blood. It ups the tension in the scene where Earl returns to his job after taking time out to be with his ex-wife in her last days, and his handlers are supposed to kill him.

Other than the scene where the cartel boss is killed, there isn't any actual violence in the film, is there? But it's important that we recognize that the threat of violence is there.

Never let the facts get in the way of a good story. ;D

I wonder if I'll come across the programme? Would a Yankees programme from May 17, 2014 be worth anything?

I hope not! I just discarded a bunch of my old program(me)s, including that one, in a fit of year-end housekeeping. Though, if I had remembered that was "our" game, I'd have hung on to it!  :D

I can't remember much about that game except that the Yankees hit a bunch of home runs, and won. I looked it up: Yankees beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, 7-1. And if it hadn't been for the three of us ... attendance that day would have been only 47,350!

https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/NYA/NYA201405170.shtml

The only two guys who played for the Yankees that day who are still with the team are an outfielder, Brett Gardner, and a relief pitcher, Dellin Betances. Several have retired (Jeter, Teixeira, Soriano, Roberts, and Ichiro is more or less retired), others were traded or left as free agents. On the other hand, one of the guys who played for the Pirates that day was with the Yankees for a couple of months last year: Andrew McCutchen. He'll be with the Phillies next year.

I was cleaning out the attic today and came across this. I must have swiped it from Yankee stadium back in May 2014. Good size pencil for golf. 8)

You didn't swipe it ... They give them away when you buy a program. You're supposed to use it to keep score!

If you had, it would look something like this (mutatis mutandis):

While we're talking about burros, there are a lot of farms around where I live, and every farm has a donkey. Why? Can anyone guess? It might be too much for AKA in his current sleep-deprived state.

I couldn't guess ... Anyway, I didn't. I Googled it. As guard animals?

Funny, my wife and I was just talking about this an hour ago because my daughter saw the movie today and really liked it.  We are positive that the first line "This is the last one, so help me God." is NOT in the movie.  That actually disappointed me as I thought it was such a great line with a great Eastwood delivery in the trailer.  I had been curious to who he was saying this line to when I saw the movie or if he was by himself when he said it.  For some reason they must have cut that line out of the movie.  I'm not sure about the "forgiveness" line but I thought Earl had said something like this .... but not positive.

This is my impression too, exit00. I'd have to see it again to be sure.

AKA got it on Question #15. Not bad, considering how long it's been since we last played.

Thanks to you both.

Congratulations, AKA. You're IT next time. :)
 
And now ... Go to bed!  :knuppel2:

Is it the animal that Sara receives for the one she gives away?

Yes! Yes! "The BURRO" from Two Mules for Sister Sara. She never has but the one mule ... unless Clint/Hogan is the second one!  :D

AKA, you are getting very warm.

Look back on page 263, where I said this. You've got this!
