HERE IS A REBLOG FROM SP WILCEN’S TERRIFIC AND ENTERTAINING BLOG.
NSFW: Coarse/vulgar language, political incorrectness, and innuendo
My newsfeeds keep me amused.
Paraphrasing what I read recently
…and I thought
…and then, because I’m nothing if not a liberal dewd, I thought some more.
Why the US rejected Poland’s plan to send jet aircraft to Ukraine
…probably because the Usoffa is mostly governed by idiots
Wuhan19 has worsened the reading crisis in [Usoffa] schools
…now explain why people who were adults before Wuhan19’s onset can’t read either
.…reading and teaching take too much time away from fantasy sports, video games, reality TV, and the most recent episode of “Three Large Ladies from Mississippi.” [Chortle!] Howya expect illiterate parents to home school their kids in matters Readin, Ritin, and Rithmatik?
One of the Kardashians did [again] something inane/cute/stupid/obnoxious
…and who gives a rat’s ass?
…shouldn’t certified loonies be locked away to protect…

A CHRISTMAS CAROL (2020) – Christmas Carol-A-Thon 2021 comes to a close with this review of the criminally underrated version of A Christmas Carol that was released last year. This production is easily one of the most beautiful adaptations of the Dickens classic.
The director was Jaqui Morris and the screenplay was crafted by David Morris utilizing almost nothing but Dickens’ own words from the novel. In this boldly creative non-musical presentation each character had their dancing performed by a professional dancer while their dialogue was voiced by professional thespians.
And what thespians! The voice of Andy Serkis is heard, in addition to those of Sian Phillips, who apparently will never die, and Leslie Caron, whom I thought had already died. Serkis provides the dialogue for Marley’s Ghost and Old Joe. Phillips is the narrator whose wonderful performance ties it all together and Caron provides the voice for the Ghost of Christmas Past.
A Christmas Carol is presented here as if it will be a puppet show put on by a family of entertainers but instead of actual puppets, professional dancers act out the story. In the same way that a ballet features superb dancing set to music, this dancing is set to narration and dialogue from the Dickens novel. Continue reading
Another great item from fellow blogger Alvarez Galloso.

A GREAT BLOG POST FROM A GREAT FELLOW BLOGGER.
Brief on the USA right now:
They – the Big Brothers and their corrupt pets – are sending millions to foreign country in the name of “Help Act” but trust me, none of my relatives in Vietnam have received anything from the government for Covid help so far. So where has the money gone? Into the pockets of corrupt corporations and people like Hunter Biden or so?! Into the pockets of the Communism party who have their children living a fancy life in USA without having to work a day in life?!
They wanted to destroy Trump’s wall and open up the border but at the same time sending billions to the middle East countries to help them build wall to secure their borders and protect them from terrorists. What about Americans? Who will protect us? TRUMP has been fighting to protect our borders, to secure our country’s safety for…
