“The thing you don’t realize about “adulting” is just how constant it is. There is always something that needs to be done and so very many things that only you can address. Basically, “relaxing” is just short-hand for, I’m ignoring the half-a-million things I should be doing.”–Ronn McCarrick
Did I mention that I watched The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot? If you haven’t seen it, the title kinda tells you what it’s about. Sam Elliot is the man in question and he’s good, but then he’s always good. You can get it on Hoopla. It worked for me in the same way that Clint Eastwood’s Gran Torino did, only with Hitler and bigfoot. As a schlocky B-movie, probably, it’s not working quite so well.
I’m not sure that it’s really a four star movie, but it’s closer to four than three. So, four it is. It’s not a comedy, so don’t go in expecting to get the giggles. Really, it’s more of a character study. I don’t want to give anything away, but I was disappointed with their bigfoot. Budget?
Rotten Tomatoes sums it up pretty well, the movie follows the epic adventures of an American legend that no one has ever heard of. Since WWII, Calvin Barr (Sam Elliott) has lived with the secret that he was responsible for the assassination of Adolf Hitler. Now, decades later, the US government has called on him again for a new top-secret mission. Bigfoot has been living deep in the Canadian wilderness and is carrying a deadly plague that is now threatening to spread to the general population. Relying on the same skills that he honed during the war, Calvin must set out to save the free world yet again.
I liked it. This is probably because I had no expectations of it.
Last nights guitar lesson added 8th notes to my repertoire of quarter and half notes. I’m struggling a bit with timing, finger placement, and strumming the right string, but it hasn’t even been a month yet. Still haven’t officially moved into chords, but I was playing around with a few this weekend… not with any success. I really need to get up onto the tips of my fingers more and stay off the meaty bits.
I’ve been agonizing and worrying over the Home page of this site. Which is dumb, given how little traffic it sees. But it’s what I do. The gist is that I’m not happy with it, it doesn’t compell interest, it doesn’t tell visitors what they’re getting, and all those things are issues because even after 13-years I still don’t know what I’m doing with this website. I need to stop worrying and just let it be, but what fun would that be. Any suggestions? I’m open to your thoughts on the matter. Hell, I’m open to hearing what you think this site is about.
