That is crummy, making a video out of a great song and movie and then not sharing it.

This version of the song is my favorite and it works spectacularly with the movie.

I have been on a kick. Here are five really good car racing movies:

  • Grand Prix, 1966 –
  • The Last American Hero, 1973 –
  • Two-Lane Blacktop, 1971 –
  • The Love Bug, 1968 –
  • Days of Thunder – 1990 –

At the movies

No pun intended because those were good days. They broke movies through to the mainstream.

I started out with I Feel Pretty. She wasn’t pretty, as if that made all the difference. It is hard to be a leading woman. She does not have it.

Kathleen Robertson in Splendor (1999) does have it. Goin’ Down the Road (1970) is another that… Down the Road Again (2011) also has it. The Girl in the Cafe’ (2005) stands out. Kelly Macdonald is all over it.

Psycho Beach Party (2000) has some merit and is worth another watch. I still don’t know who done it.

Now I am back to Starting Out in the Evening (2007). I think I have seen it before.

But I am stocked-up. Gosford Park (2001) is downloaded and ready to go. Same with Intermission (2003).

greedy monday

I have been waiting. CNBC’s American Greed gets an update: a new season.

“I want to, like, go to Yale.”

Olivia Jade.

Young and modern.

Darn. Halfway through we are informed that Lori Loughlin is not going to appear. I believe her days on When Calls the Heart are over too.

Look, they dug up old video!

You are not going to escape. The production values are too high.


The dispatch woman who was so intent on reading from a computer said my mailbox is “public property” “on a road” and anyone can put anything in it.


Damaging someone’s property is considered criminal mischief under C.R.S. 18-4-501. Criminal mischief involves knowingly damaging real property or the personal property of another. Even if the property was co-owned by one of the people who damaged the property, they could still be charged with criminal mischief.

more mail obstruction

That is from an old post; here to be exact. That is why I keep a blog.

That it happened again is no surprise. About 3 months ago I once again reported dangerous speeding and was told “patrols will be increased.” I knew it was a lie. That is part of the problem, or at least it is a symptom of it.

Two more arrogant, don’t know anything about local laws or federal ones, state patrol troopers in my driveway is all I need or want.

I have also reported incessant street racing, worse now in the Summer, more than once. Then there is the noise and the dump trucks in particular. It is way over the local vehicular limit. Who s responsible for that one?

Here are a few pics…
