THE PRISONER: FALL OUT (SERIES FINALE)

BFall Outalladeer’s Blog CONCLUDES its  examination of the 1967 science fiction/ existential drama The Prisoner. For Part One, in which I examined the themes and concepts at play in the series click  HERE

Episode Title: FALL OUT

Madness and death reign supreme in the still-controversial series finale of The Prisoner.

We’ve at last arrived at the 17th and final episode of this innovative Patrick McGoohan series. Last time around, in Part One of the two-part conclusion, we at last learned why the Prisoner resigned from British Intelligence. The significance of the Penny-Farthing Bicycle symbolism was revealed, too.

Fall Out brings the entire saga to a close. Continue reading

THE BODY SHOP (1973): MOVIE REVIEW

THE BODY SHOP (1973) – Category: A neglected bad movie classic that deserves a Plan 9-sized cult following

HALLOWEEN MONTH CONTINUES! The horror film titled The Body Shop is one of my all-time favorite bad movie gems. It includes all the little extras that separate mere bombs from the truly legendary turkeys and, like another neglected classic, The Wizard of Mars (see my Bad Movie page for the review), just keeps getting worse and worse and weirder and weirder all the way to the end. Continue reading

TRUMP CARDS: OCTOBER 12th

Hillary No Power No CivilityHILLARY CLINTON PROVES THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN A DRUNK IS A MEAN DRUNK!

Hillary “Bugsy” Clinton and Eric “Fast and Furious Scandal” Holder, both of whom served in the cabinet of the weak, inept and crooked little man named Barack “Tony Ears” Obama, egged on the slobbering psychopaths called Democrats.

Eric Holder, the J Edgar Hoover of Color

ERIC HOLDER

Hillary encouraged more political violence, indicating that it should only stop if Democrats retake Congress. Holder – the only Attorney General to out-do Republican John Mitchell of the Nixon Administration for corruption – bluntly echoed those sentiments.

This sleazy conduct is why so many of us former Democrats decided to #WALKAWAY from that increasingly deranged political party.

Trump and KanyeKANYE WEST AND TRUMP: LOVE IS ALL AROUND

One of the best things about the way that Donald Trump is a de facto Third Party President is how he has attracted the support of so many voters of color! Trump shakes up the establishment and is in reality neither a Republican NOR a Democrat. 

And let’s face it, Trump’s appeal across racial lines is one of the many reasons why the George W Bush/ National Review faction of Republicans HATE him so much.  

Kanye West gets most of the attention – like at his recent meeting with President Trump – but Balladeer’s Blog has featured countless stories about all the African-American support Trump has gotten in his role as the only President in decades to help the working class and poor of ALL COLORS.

Trump peeing on CNNDEMOKKKRATS AT CNN FURIOUS BECAUSE SO MANY AFRICAN-AMERICANS RECOGNIZE WHAT A GREAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS 

The Democrats at CNN are still frothing at the mouth that so many African-Americans (over 37% in recent polling) keep warming up to President Trump and his accomplishments for their community.

Race-hatred is in the DNA of the Democrats. For more on CNN’s hate-filled rantings CLICK HERE

THE LOST STRADIVARIUS: HALLOWEEN READING

lost-stradivarius-2

Jeremy Brett in The Lost Stradivarius

THE LOST STRADIVARIUS (1895) by John Meade Falkner – More than a century before Anne Rice’s violin-oriented ghost story Violin came The Lost Stradivarius. Halloween month continues here at Balladeer’s Blog with a look at this neglected gem of horror fiction.

The main story is set in the 1840s. John Maltravers, a young man from the British gentry, is attending Magdalen College at Oxford University. Stumbling across an anonymous piece of lost music the talented Maltravers plays the piece on a violin.

This spontaneous recital summons up – among other horrors – the ghost of Adrian Temple, the violinist who composed the eerie piece of music when he was a student at Oxford in the 1750s. That ghost leads John to the hidden location of his (Temple’s) Stradivarius violin. Continue reading

FACULTY LOUNGE FASCIST ROUNDUP: OCTOBER 11th

VoltaireIt’s no secret that make-believe “educators” (LMAO) have – through their political intolerance – reduced colleges and universities to faith-based institutions that are as irrational as any religious “schools.”

The Democrats at these institutions abuse their positions to browbeat their students with their unhinged political views.

ACADEMIC GRIEVANCE STUDIES AND THE CORRUPTION OF SCHOLARSHIP – This is a terrific item at Areo Magazine. It’s a look at the blatantly partisan political screeds that masquerade as scholarship. 

The trio of authors have also demonstrated the absurdity of grievance “theories” by getting collections of gibberish published IN PEER-REVIEWED PUBLICATIONS under the noses of alleged academics who could not even tell that the papers presented were PARODIES of the silliness of politically distorted “scholarship.”  

The link is below, but first an excerpt: 

“Something has gone wrong in the university—especially in certain fields within the humanities. Scholarship based less upon finding truth and more upon attending to social grievances has become firmly established, if not fully dominant, within these fields, and their scholars increasingly bully students, administrators, and other departments into adhering to their worldview.

“This worldview is not scientific, and it is not rigorous. For many, this problem has been growing increasingly obvious, but strong evidence has been lacking. For this reason, the three of us just spent a year working inside the scholarship we see as an intrinsic part of this problem.”
