The Super Inframan ’75

Movie was awesome . Had to watch it dubbed.
What can I say the costumes we awesome the Kung fu was awesome.
Wasnt too long. It was funny watching it nowadays. Its like the original power rangers. The sets were great the villains were great. The control rooms and computers were fun. Inframan was awesome. The fight choreography awesome. Props awesome. Some older effects like the drawing colored light on screen were neat to see. I like the tracking beams. Mortocycle chases, the boat scene. The scenery. The 70’s style outfits. All in all just a fun movie. I especially like the dragon princess. The eyes on hands, the creative super hero, the challenges to overcome like the losing power. The creative mosnters, tentacle guy and spring guy. I think I heard a slide whistle when the dragon princess jumps. Definitely would watch again, or something similar. Just dont make movies like that anymore.

Apocalypse Now ’79 ~ 2000

-Authors note graphic content-
Reader discretion advised.

Im watching the 3:16:04 run time one.
This movie loosely based on the 1899 book entitled Heart of Darkness By Joseph Conrad.
Never read that book but its based in Congo. I find that super interesting that take one story then, base it in a completely different setting. Leaves room for interpretation. Leaves room for creativity. Ok Joseph Conrad; 1857 – 1924 Born in Russia. Didnt speak english till twenties then became one of the greatest English writers. Themes of nautical and courage of humans at sea in the midst of nature. Me its been a long ass August. Just cam back from some wild as bush party by Red Deer. It was a good time. Got kinda rained out and the body a little sore. Otherwise was good visiting old friends. Decided to start off more blog with a classic. It sems like Vietnam is coming up in discussion too fairly often these days so it seems appropriate. Plus I been listening to a bunch of the doors lately. So there you go. Its not my typical set up neither so thats the cause of the delay. Also trying to take a break from screentime. Aight Captain so and so. Cant remember his name. Sorry just back to Joseph Conrad for a second. This guy seems liek a well travelled individual. Family man, lots of friends. Lots of places. Also in the same hand, an ‘outsider,’ and a exiled. I think its worth some further investigation one day. Ford Francis Coppola, must be a interesting dude to be inspired by him Another note Director still alive. So Someone whose still alive that was making movies in the 60s and 70s. Holy shit Nicholas cage is his nephew. Lets See Outsiders, God Father, Bram Stokers. Apocalypse now won a bunch of awards. Ok back to the Captain. Opening scene, from the rotors to the napalm to the ceiling fan. Brilliant. He jolts outta sleep looks outside: “Saigon, Shit.” Divorced his wife from the first tour. Waiting for a mission. Like they bring it up like room service. Never caught that one. Lol, makes me laugh the MPs show up. They got the enveloppe, “they like are you alright ?” The captain responds whats it fucking look like. Lol Thats kinda humourous. The cast is just stacked. Its like This what made em famous I suppose. Martin Sheen is Captain Willard. Marlon Brando. Lawrence Fishburne. Hehe compare the matrix and this movie ahaha theyre so far apart. Good for him. I like deep contrasts. Who else Harrison Ford. I dunno Martin Sheen is kind o a one man show in this though. The rest is really supporting cast. Marlon Brando or the Colonel Kutz is omnipresent although dont get to see him till the end. Of course spoiler alert. Watch the movie its 42 years old. Hey buddy You gonna shut the door!? Thats funny he thinks hes getting arrested but nah hes got some top level orders. To be fair gotta be bat shit crazy to accept and complete an assignment like that. Darg his ass to the shower. Cold ass shower lol. Got the government official witht he tie. Theyre all spooks lol. Goes over the crazy missions hes not allowed to talk about. Talks about going up the river thats a live cable running through the whole war. Im familiar with a bit of it. VC Running operations outta Cambodia with the war laws preventing GI’s from crossing the border, yet being attacked from there. I know some special forces operations that went through there from some old books I read. Its funny how the Harrison ford, Im not sure maybe hes a Major or something, but he go a whole American style trailer complete with plants growing in old tires. Just how would he get a American style trailer out there would be some crazy logistics lol. By boat then to the airfield or Heavy cargo plane. Either way cant be cheap but makes a nice little touch of home. Specially high rank office some comforts of home lol. If I was him maybe did urself a little room under there lol. Hes got the roast beef dinner. Just completely surreal. Its pretty much amaerican homs style cooking,-in vietnam. Hes like you want some of this shrimp ? If so youll never have to prove ur courage again lol. Thats kinda funny. Then before they get to eat you get some psycho playback. basically gotta get this Run away special forces colonel hiding in Cambodia. Hes got his own army. The dinner scene is intersting. Talking about some abstract war and humanity things. You know its tricky to find out harrison ford insignia, looks like a artillery or swords but vertical. Black X, taller than skinny. Colonel G Lucas. I guess he was 37 when they filmed this. I know this was along ass process to film this. I watched a documentary the making of. I though it was fascinating.

Im on a mission with the Captain. Terminate with extreme prejudice. Thats all he ever says that dude.im on the mission long ass movie lol. Gotta get up that river. Ok 2 crossed rifles, Marines. Remind every marine your a rifleman first. Martial Nature of the job.No matter the assignment. some of that score music is pretty crazy. Wicked helicopter shots. He discusses how It was different all of a sudden the Colonel was american. Wasnt supposed to matter. The captain comments on how ridiculous it is, chargin a man with murder in vietnam was like handing out speeding tickets at the indy 500. Then what you just go back to america like nothing happened. Guess thats why he got a divorce. Accepts the mission cause nothing else to do lol. Well he says he wants to be in the jungle. Now he took a helicopter to the boat. And they ride off in the dusk. River patrol boat I guess isnt the worst place to be. You know looking at a map it would be difficult to travel up vietnam by river. Cambodia bot so much. Still youd end up in many built up areas. They travel down the coast they say. then it would be a hop skip and a jump to Cambodia, or phnom penh. Theres a genocide museum im looking at. Loks wild looks hot and condensed. Lots of 2 story stuctures. In later years, anyone though of being intellectual or knowing a foreign launguage was killed. A school turned prison. That prison played a big role during that time. Yikes wouldnt want to be around those times. Would be dangerous to walk the streets. Theyre so claled revolutionaries, but just a trail of failure and human death. Thnose pre made up busts, i guess people werent keen on celebrating genocide.. Its lawrence fishburn morn captain lol hes 17. I like the chef or the machinist probably the most outta the boat crew. Airborne at 38 yearas old lol.Arcligh they launched from Guam. The surfer guy scene. Landing assault craft and their boat. Its a bulldozer boat. Yeh this scene is just crazy its liek an operation must be hundreds in the scene. Kilgore lol hes crazy. Its robert duvall he actually likes the war. Wow Robert Duvall interesting actor. Bunch of Sci fi. And, well godfather he was actually in the army. Just a psycho hes like any man brave enough to fight with graphic shit can drink outta my canteen any day. The surfer garners more authority than the captaion lol just a bizarre scene. Helicoptering cows and beach party. Just a crazy weirdo. They base the recon on which river is best for surfing. hes a Army Major just Air cav crazy lol. Surfboards in Nam wh the hell not. They airlifting that boat but doesnt look like they show it. They carded the VC but there was nearly as many GI body bags. Sitting on hemets. Another crazy scene with dozen helicopters. Music. Heres the village now just explosion everwhere people running another hundreds in the scene. 2 villages in a row. Just that coastal bridge scene its awesome . Car mounted 50 cal. Flare in the chopper causes a kerfuffle. This air cav beach landing is quite the sight. They one guys like im not going. Gets dragged right off. Casualty collection point is a bit nervewracking. Casualties of the mission and surfing. The medivac gets grenaded and they got some problems now. Either surf or fight lol. Who says that. Oh theres the boat. This guy is freaking crazy lol. Hes got a baby now. Heres some F5s Im pretty sure. Ok the wtf. the major gets a baby inspects him then sends him off to the hospital. A bit of humanity/ Such a crazy character though. Hes like gripping that baby. Theres like bodies in the background.The other one its a twin boom aircraft. Im guessing the Fairchild C-82 packets, or the skymaster, but yea more like the c-82. Just that skymaser has a similar color less cockpit and fuselage. Nothing in the world smells like that. Love the smell of Napalm ion the morning iconic line. Smell like victory. He does look sad like one day the war will be over. Captain Willard is just like wtf. Captain like your not going out there. lol. Hes like wanna surf, get the fuck outta here lol. See a chancve and they escape. Wild ass scene though just money and pyro. The whole coast line destroyed in one morning. Vietnam many huge, many people operations. ITs like sight to see in film couldnt imagine seeing in person.They get the surfboard. Hes actually laughing. The captain is good shit to the boat crew. Must be dusk now. They took his surfboard lol. Just give me back the board, theyre flying around with megaphones lol. Another bizarre scene when they have to get out the boat.
___
Chance to show a tiger. I already seen this but definitely gets dark in the Jungle compared to the beach.
That tree and jungle they show up too is pretty wild. The chef is a sauce guy.
Ill have to put this down for a intermission, and come back to it got lots on the go.
___
The mangoe collection. Is that how you like it when its hot and hairy. Referring to combat. Maybe youll find out what you are in some factory in Ohio.
Well that boat goes through the shit. Surfer makes it. Im a saucier. Magoes off the tree thats kinda nice though. minus the tigers. Hes got a nelly bandaid something i never wrote. Oh the captaion sees something of interest. Freaking M-16 with that 3 round burst. Lol in suspense it got me too. lol Chef loses his shit lol. The captain runs right up to a bush hears a clicking then a tiger just jumps right out. Its a awesome scene and some good acting from chef. Hes just fed up with the war all he wants to do is cook. Its kinda humourous for the litle rag tag boat crew. Surfer laughing his ass off. Lawrence got the m60 he thinks theres enemy in the jungle, they leave the bucket behind. basically scramble onto the boat. The chief, chief of the boat, hes like a tiger? The captain just emotionless. Obviously a little rilled up. ad that with the surf colonel trying to get his surfboard back, what madness is this. Little trial by fire. First they had the 2 villages. Now the tiger in the jungle. With shots fired, nerve wracking. “Never get out of the Boat!”. Wow just learning about that particular boat and some history its quite fascinating. How would impede supplies on the delta. never get out of the boat the captain repeats, absolutely goddam right; Unless you were going all the way.. lol. Just a sinister line. This poor crew, yet its an adventure still. Leads into the captain reading more about Kutz. 38 yrs old airborne. Giving up carreer with green berets. Family couldnt understand him . The captain starts admiring him. Basically 2 assasins, one came first. Mutual respect. Id like to see that Joseph Conrad book. Just what are the similarities. Carreer soldioers with all the courses, Kutz coulda gone general instead he went for himself. Makes for a omnipresent character, there he is on paper with a air of deep mystery. Back on operation Kutz just teams up with some locals, and does his own opeartion no clearance, and major success. Theres some clues of renegade officer lol. Hes just gone solo, doesnt even need the army or its permission anymore. Thats probably why harrison ford aplus general and the spook are like hes gotta go. But after the press got the story they changed their tune and promoted him instead. Ballsy. Nice they end up at the strangest base. No doubt lawrence says what we all thinking. Its like a stage. Wow theres actually a Apocalypse Now event map. The base they pull up to is Hau Phat. Aint much street view around there but the place does exist. Giant warehouse of army supplies. The captain just full of surprises, he catches a tiniest bit of guff from the supply sarge and trashes him right over the counter lol. Of course no one else weariong the special forces outfit. The captain doesnt care theres a concert going on. Pretty funny, after that they get press box tickets and a bottle of booze for the capt. lol. Prolly doesnt wanna get disciplined. Again hes aight to the boat crew. The show. Just a wild ass scene. The stage is a water covered stage, with boat light surrounding it. Hundreds of extras again in the crowd. Its like a wrestling style crowd, they got signs, vibrant. You got a suzie Q playing in the background the playmates. Its a crazy fun scene, your like wow crazy soldiers on leave lol. Its like they outta control, desperation. Locals back behind a fence watching. Its liek a strip club gone wild. Little too crazy for the captn and chief. Others jumping over the barbwire to storm the stage its pandemonium mayhem. You can only sit by and watch the chaos. Kinda fun, but also added crazyness of the whole scene. People hanging off the helicopter. See that scene again at the end of the war. The captain reflects on how the enemy doesnt get much USO. Kinda reflects on these are the reasons. Enemy dug in too much moving too fast. And, look at this nonsense. Unorganized mess of mayhem. Dont think i picked that up too much the first times watching this. The mob on stage lol. Its completely ridiculous probably even for USA standards. Like I can think that James Brown concert during riots was nothing like that. Also didnt have 3 playmates at a army base. Death or victory. Talking about the ARVN the next day. Playboys. I think i remember now, they make it to another more hectic base later. Thats maybe when they run into the playmates again. Maybe the boat search next. Hard to say. Surfer got waterskies. Good morning vietnam. Dry your laundry indoors, everyone. the mayor of saigon want you to keep the city beautiful. Its like guaranteed no soldier getting shot at is gonna care about that minor message lol. Irrelevant almost. Meanwhile on the boat crew just having a merry old time. Chief getting a rest, Lawrence slapping hands with the Chief. Chef singing off tune, surfer is water skiing. Listening to rolling stones. Its like a small semblance of normalcy in absolute chaos. Which is neat cause the absolute contrast of war and death coming up. Theres some real character development. They sem like real people with families. Ups and downs. Fears and joys. The Captains sinister narration always brings the film back to focus. Yeh so i like the boat crew they seem real to me. Even though they armed to the teeth they have a sort of innocence. Its realy the locals getting off put. they behind fences, they getting dsturbed doing laundry by the wake of the boat. Cold rice, death, or victory. Its totally morbid.

Movie is a lot to take in and experience so its a work in progress. Im a happy go lucky guy with baseball, I took a dive in the absurdity and abstractness of it all. Where was I surfer was surfing boat crew having a decent time. Thats 2 groups of locals disturbed by the wake, its humourous but the GIs dont mix with the locals . I mean its minor its getting wet or whatever. Its like getting empty can of beer thrown at your head when changing a flat tire its not really necessary. Alternatively fuck the war, and fun comes first. Captain reads a lette from the colonel. Talking about how conscripts, tourists in nam. As long as theres cold beer bbq, rock and roll and all the amenities, Us troops remain debutantes. That a fourth of the force more committed experienced soldiers could win the war in less of the time. Theres that contrast. As the captain munches on a almond hershey bar and licks his fingers. Hell there might aswell be a Macdonalds at the base. The omnipresent colonel Kurtz. Walter E Kurtz is the characters name. Such a great movie and character development the omnipresent Colonel, lives through his letters newspaper clippings. These bastards 2 boats playing chickn and lobbing smoke grenades at each other lol. Its the mega contrast. The bullshit piling up so high you need wings to stay out of it. Burnt the canopy on the boat lol smooth move. Kurtz in October November ambushes then he orders the assasintion of some south Vietnamese army colonels. Ambushes in sector stop. Thats crazy they were spies. Telling vc his moves. Right 4 people. lol thats sinister. Army tried to bring em back. He said no, then thats were the captain comes in. Kurtz gone. All these crazy photos. The captain pretty chill doesnt even freak out on the drumsticks. Specializing in busting my balls. Chief and captain reach a bit of a deal. Getting a bit of tension, its liek yea it Cambodia. You get me close and Im cutting you loose. Seems like they boat past a familiar tree line, like they used it in 2 scenes. That synth sounds like a horror flick. Kurtz get accused of Murder, from the 4 double agents. Thats wild, so I cant really recall all these details since last I saw. I was more interested in other aspects of the movie. I really like the delicate nature of the humanity and complete savagery. Really some deep contrasts. HEs good but he bad. They fun loving but they killers. Its beautiful but its hell. The turmoil and growth in the captains inner dialogue. The fun on the boat to the unknown and horrors. Kurtz talking about how the charges are completely insane, in the context of the war. He did what he was supposed to. Thats so freaking sinister kurtz words to his family as read by capt willard as they boat past the wrecked helicopter still on fire. Theres shit everwhere. One vietnamese kid wering the pilots helmet. Theres a nother mega quote in the letter. I wont recite it cause I know it well and im not really after a reciting the scene by scene and dialogue, rather my interpretations of it. And, my reactions, see if i notice anything of interest to myself. The boat boys arrive at a new forward base in the rain looks completely fucked up. Hey the playboy helicopter. This base more looking like youd expect in vietname muddy rainy falling apart. Omg theres someone chasing a naked troop lol something youd see at a festival on the last.. or first? few days ahaha. Or a rock concert lol. Its the USO guy. The boat crew all wrestling in the rain. Capt like wtf. Lol this is the best scene so far. Couple hours with the bunnies. Fuel so they can prolly fly away. Ok well the huey was kersone the patrol boat diesel . I dunno just making some assumptions. lol. Hes like you just gave away our fuel for a couple hours with the bunnies. Playmate of the month, nah playmate of the year, he says with a grin, and he got his bottle. Thats all the captain cares about in terms of luxuries and pleaures. Definitely diesel fuel. Just so freaking bizzarre. Its like 10x crazier than the concert. The girls talking abou their lives and personality kinda. But theyre known as the playmates. Who reads the articles in the playboy ahhahaah. The birds and the women on the helicpter is just like womesn touch to a war machine another contrast or its an oxymoron almost. Lawrence all on the chopper bangin on the door. Theyre sayin some funy strange things lol. Its funny and shocking at the same time, ew a corpse pops out of the box. The one with the surfer, talking these things how she didnt wanna do. all these fairly traumatic things, the scene aint easy to watch. Yea with lawrence at the window, who are you oh im next mam’. Its liek some nasty ww2 shit. I guess any coveted woman in a warzone desired by many. Probably some of the most brutal shit i wrote about on the blog. All the horror shit has a bit of a humorous gore. This is like a psychological human nightmare. Back on the boat tensions are hot. Meanwhile theres this ominous “last photo” of Kurtz. Its Kurtz too his name in Heart of darkness. Im really curious about the book now. The last photo of Kurtz, darkened visage you cant even see his face. You can see the outline of his marine style haircut. The caption handed up by the ARVN suspected photo of Kurtz. Omnipresent antagonist. His aura dark and mysterious and unknown really. The whole movie is getting closer and closer to kurtz. He just makes appearances from his photo.

Wow someone just liked my comment on the Bruce Springsteen video thats hilarious. Gotta love that Bruce Springsteen all american. I heard he was so touched that Prince showed up at his concert all in disguise. Bruce Springteen heard that Prince went to his concert and he was really touched someone of Princes music caliber chose to come to his show. I just thought that was a cool story. Back in the 80s where creativity blossomed and well it wast all business yet. I was at the store today reading the tabloids, about how Britney Spears got her Dad off the conservator deal, after he blew away her fortune. What an abomination and poor Brittney too. She worked so hard and that sleaze business reared its ugly head. Also shows its sounder to build a foundation off he creativity than the business. Makes me think of Leonard Cohen. Screwed by his friend. What a bummer. 80s will be forever more accepting, and creative. Experimental, vs now the groomed artists. Cept maybe Jackson, could be a groomed artist but not really it was his family biz. I dunno im conflicted. Miley Cyrus too was fam business but its not even comparable to MJ. Not really hating on Miley its just not for me. Are they both pop? Would these people sing for fun or only fame and fortune. All yall records sound the same; Im sick of that fake thug, R&B rap scenario all day on the radio, same scenes in the video, monotonous material.. Anyways here just rambling about britney spears in the apocalypse now lol. You know what else Apocalypse now predicted Musubi rising with that naked dude getting chased by his friend. lol priceless… Aigt I gotta get into the shit now gotta do this boat scene. For whatever reason never liked this scene too much made me uncomfortable. Its liek the captain says skip it, they coulda skipped it but noo, lets watch our characters act inhumane and out-of character almost. The chief is like my boat we doing this. Lawreence just goes off and has a machine gun massacre jesus man. they were protecting a puppy. its like yea lets do some first aid after just unloaded a m60 belt into her. Captain finsihes her off just cold emotionless get this show on the road, what a shit show. That has to be the most brutal scene so far. He told him then they off acting like amateur hour, disobeying orders, trigger happy. Its gruesome. Then willards inner dialogue about lies. Its like some protagonist vs, becoming the antagonist. Yea i mean in that scene those poor vietnamese trying to fish do food things, fmaily or firends. Did they find any weapons grenades outfits. Kinda unnecessary. I get what hes going for in that scene though. Its willard slippin away, fear of becoming, or just unconsiously becoming Kurtz. Willard showed em whose more cold blooded he deemed it necessary though. Nowadays that shit isnt seen so much if so really frowned upon. It wasnt a problem for Kurtz to be charged for murder , for winning the war. I guess his methods just didnt fit with the politics of it all. either way glad the scene over, Its uncomfortable if they coulda jst found something justifiable worth the slaughter. Yeah chef is all fucked up. Hes reliable but going downhill emotionally. willard is also fed up he jst doesnt show it so much. Chief is annoyed the secret ops mission taking him away from routine. Lawrence young guy aint afraid to us that 60. And surfer is in some melancholy state he seems to be losing parts of his humanity unwillingly. They pull up to this bridge last army outpost on the river. Lance is the characters name, he like i was aving tab of acid. Chef is liek whats with you. You dropped acid? Far out. lol the madness continues. He still all camouflaged up. I think it must relate to his character development. His appearance changed. (Lance). Alright well they pull up to he bas tis even more fucked up then the last one. A bunch of GIs with suitcases swarm up to the patrol boat. Creepy sight. They must all be like wtf are we getting ourselves into. Someone flashes for Cat Willard, get that fucking light out of my face. Its like have some fucking flashlight etiquette. Specially nowadays mega torches with some idiot pointing it right in your eye like some cop, its like Im standing less than 5 meters from you. lol. anyways this base seems like a shit show. I never undestood the smoke pack in the band of the helmet neither. I guess it would make sense you could reach and pull one out, or ur not in a firefight got ur helmet off reach for a smoke. if its in your pocket or a pour the smokes get trashed or wet that sucks. Theyd get wet in the helmet band too. Lance wants to go on adventure.. dont you remember the tiger lol,. The bridge is a engineering failure. The VC keep blowing it up each night. The mail delivery and orders runner is just happy to gtfo there. Its like clown music. Looks like the mad carnival. I remember this scene not as bad as the boat. Bunch of black dudes just chillin in the bunker they dont say anything. Some weird ass rock and xmas lights in the background. Well they certainly were more chill the the screaming dude at the entrance of the trench. Says CO in a concrete bunker lol where else would he be. The most protected place. ahaha just like constanza during the fire drill. Lance is just tripping out wide eyed. Maybe they were listening to some jimi hendrix style music. Kinda what it sounded like some grungy electric guitar. Oh man caught me off guard there. That was funny. hahahaha. Ok it all happened so fast. Oh man thats a good laugh. Ok so not sure what happened to the captain. he ends up at tyhe bottom of the trench soaked helmet knocked off. I think he stepped on someone he though was dead and wasnt, thats not the funny part; they (Land and willand) get to the corner of the trench all you see is one guy on the left. The other guy is going off on a fifty cal butterfly gip , i mean like really going off screaming into the distance. Willard asks, what are you shooting at there soldier, He like what the fuck you think im shooting at motherfuckers screaming like a barbarian, then all of a sudden notices the captain bars, he changes his tune right away hes like goes from crazy to all polite explaining theres VC just outside the wire. Foir whatever reason I just find that hilarious, funniets scene in the movie so far to me, he s like oh sir, didnt see your rank lol. Goes from insane to sane in like less than a tenth of second. Outstanding. oh needed a good laugh. PLus willard all just recovering from being tossed in the mud. Fuck that made me laugh. OK the CO is in the bunker called beverly hills thats fitting lol. The black fellas are like aw hell nah. Wuillard gets tossed in the mud. the other one on the left is feeding some big ammo. The ceter guy hes like ” I told you not to fuck with me! You think you so bad huh! ” Really going off psycho style. Willard what are you shooting at soldier: What the fuck you think im shooting at , immmediatly hes like ” Im sorry sir” quick salute lol. “Thers VC out past the wire. But i thnk i killed em all. lol. thats one for the books. Im probably onlyh one that finds that shit funny. Aight moving on lol. U think you bad huh you think you bad huh screaming thats funny to me. Whose in command here, aint you? Thats gotta be fun to hear. I think like harison ford and his little trailer so far from this trench in every way possible. I mean they were having roast beef for fucks sake. Go get the roach. The roach? Its some crazy looking dude with a M79 calmly walks over , shuts the radio off. Tiger stripped M79. Hes like you need a flare, nah. Hes close real close. This is a bad dude lol. Cool as a cucumber. He was sleeping lol. Willard watches on in silence and amazement. One shot. Fuck-em. Thats some colder than samuel L jackson. he says its a drug induced stupor on the internet but its not like theres any actual clues unless its in the script or something. All it says is hes wearing beads and shit, and he wakes up kinda annoyed but sauters over all cool like. I dont see no stupor. Change of scene and a couple of GIs get blown off the bridge. Lawrence freaks out a bit chief tells him to stay cool he be aight. And Lance and willard get back. Bridge collapses as they boat past. Weird music from the score. Past the brdge day time. Emphasis on nature. Mail call. Everyone gets mail cept the captain. He just gets orders. Willard get a creepy new development. Theres was another man on the same mission as him before. He joined up with Kurtz. Army said hes MIA for the family but intercepts a letter he like sell the house sellthe car, sell the kids. Im never coming back. Dude with a football jersey. Captain Colby with kurtz. Chief got a letter with Manson pic front cover. Current movie time events I love that. I wonder what that orange fence translates to. All i can find on the internet is something about puppet governmnt. Maybe its not supposed to mean anything. Its just a visual contrast. The google translate shows, Online; By;
Ok; bow/also
First line Cho Nhan Dan Vietnam .. google translates to give core people vietnam
Next line ..IEn-truc Boi RMK – Bru Duoc cung-cap boi chinh- phu hoa google translates to ; (direct contact by) RMK could be airport australia BRU could be brussels? (Okay) (provided) (by) (conqeror) or (government) thats interesting. Its chopped scenes. its just orange and purple some colors not really seen so much so it really hits the eye.
Anyways Lance going off on the purple smoke grenades, then ambush. maybe some roman candles. Lawrence bought the farm. the whoel crew upset. Even sadder the letter from his mom is playing ion the back. Sad scene. Chief has a US navy patch on oops. Damn chief really took him on as a son and its sad to see him cry. Laughing before now its sad. The guy just a kid right. Kid with a machine gun sent to do some dirty business. And, that ambush was really close up. I guess in the navy patrol boat, you can only get as far away of the shore as possible. Its a loss for the crew. Its not like was on the innocent farm boat all movie, before the americans show up. Its like as a viewer you are on the boat and with the crew. lance looking for the dog after the fire fight and then, next scene another weird contrast of green, and blue. green smoke, blue dusk and clouds. Its weird an aire of pestilence. You feel sad for the mom on the tape speaking to the void. No wife but the mom was kind enough to send a message on the tape. Chief knows its going up river the risk so you wonder how much resentment he’ll have to the captain. Capt aint fuckin around neither. So its like yhou wanna rock and roll, better be ready for an ambush still. Some just not treating it like a warzone , just like Kurtz thought. Ew they drive past some bodies burning. And , a jet crashed in the river. Thats many fuselages stuck and burning in the river, like this movie is $$. Im sure they did their best with props but how do you plant a burning helicopter in the trees, jet fuselage in the river. Its really distressing to see pop out of the fog right before your eyes. The captain has to lower the mast and they litterally go under the tail. Thats crazy. More fog and low visibility. Theres not much talking since Lawrence left the team. They arrve at some weird built up area. Capt gets the binos. They pull in for a closer look. Its wreckage. It may have been a docking zone but iots busted up smoldering, abandoned. Theres a Renault oil sign. French. I hear drop ur weapons leave ur weapons. Theyre frenc they kinda surround em Chief speaks a bit of french New orleans. Just weird cause the french are supposed to have left long time ago but not this group. Funny how chief just drops his weapon cause some voice in the mist tells him to. Looks like some vietnamese. Weird the french guy has a leader, had that plantation for 70 years, and they have a parade to bury lawrence. Chief has a tear. His Navy dress cap. Theres a woman overlooking in the tower. Fold up this rags of a flag. Burry him with a few things the tape recorder. This movie took 2 years to edit can you believe that. So strange. So now theyre in france or as close as they gonna get to France in this. Wine sauces. Chef is really excited. theyre all cleaned up too.
___
Like how could this get any weirder. Hpw about a mega dinner party lol, why not. I mean the guys plantation been there for 70 yrs is a long time so it pays homage to the past, this movie has it alll. Goes off about why dont you go back to france, and yea thats a whole can of worms. I cant tell if theyre disillusioned and, or they have a nice plantation home they just want to stay at. I guess for me its a little mystical but whatever boat crew at the dinner party. Proxy wars and communism. Wow cracks an egg says the white leaves and the yellow stays. Its like who thought of this. Crazy. Anyways all these hot tensions cause he asked why dont you go back to France.THey have their own little ecosystem going on . Its just so much political banter going on and the whole histroy of france in like 10 seconds. Ive been to some of those cemetaries in france alot of people died I mean like as far as you can see. Definitely a touchy subject. Oh yea I should mention the obvious love interest . Because why not throw a love interest in the mix theyre at the officers table though. Lance and Chef arent there talking about politics. And Willard is like hes the one that represents all of USA. Well everyone knows the French were defeated proxy war, and I guess i know of it but not all the details. Its like gentlemen discussing battle plans. Its a scene a good one too lots of people of all types , huge contrast from the jungle. The woman smokes a cigar. Thats kinda hot. So yea the plantation history the had brought over rubber from Brazil to vietnam to make it grow make something of nothing, thats really what it is. Industrialism. Plantations just have all sorts of bad vibes sometimes. Lol its just the two of em left together. how romantic. Shes a widower. Very 1800s weird house.Im happy for the captain she brings up a good point that hes the same as them, your home is here. Thats a ominous concept. Your home is hell, but since the beginning willard wanted to be in the jungle. wow then they smoke opium or thats whats it looks like. Right on captain crazy just takes a huge rip of opium. i guess thats how you live in the jungle with some mosquito netting. Hallucinations. Kurtz . Hes close. Damn so much happening ; they run into some locals throwing sticks or something chief gets a spear through him. Then there were three. Chief wasnt too happy about dying thats all i can say, gruesome. total face to face with death. Damn the chief floats away small ceremony by Lance. Chef is freaking out, he though the mission was to blow up some bridge. But , no theyre after another GI. Chef talks himself into following the mission Really the more up river they go the more bizzare it gets. Cant tell if its night or day.
Desire to confront Kurtz. Lance all trippin out still for days it seems lol. Hes like interpretive dancing. They end up at some river flottila. Hundreds of people in that scene. The Photojournalist. Him Colonel Kurtz. This guy is nuts for Kurtz. This guy has a larger than life and hundreds of bodies and people on set. Just so weird. and theres te captain previous captain. Theres just bodies everywhere. Some interesting stone structures. Theyre waiting for him. The mud and muck its nasty. Willard gets taken prisoner. Smells of malaria. Out of no where he asks where you from. Kurtz. THe man of the hour. The omnipresent man, heard his voice a couple times on the tape. Htey talk about Ohio and rivers, Kurtz went down that river as a kid. He looks like a hot mess, old bald, sweaty. Still hes Colonel Kurtz. The bodies and stench of pungent death is present. Hes talking about a island it had flowers must be wild and overgrown by now. He looks ghasthly and he knows it. Hes like Do you know why they want to terminate my command. Totally insane. Im getting a picture of the Kurtz on the cellphone, well its been so many days dont wanna forget this moment. Kurtz youve gone insane and your methods are unsound. Hes the lord of death. This movie is completly self aware, the classified is out the window, kurtz asks him flat out what did you expect.Kurtz just drops the coldest shit, he says, you an assasin? Nah im a soldier; youre neither, your an errand boy sent by grocery clerks to collect a bill. HTNis place is the temple of death foreal. lol The far our photo journalist are there still characters like that is there still kurt russell charaters too. The photojournalist is the liason, he tells the story cause how else could it. SHit just got so real I forgot about chef and Lance in the boat. Photojournalist is a strange character, hes like a bystander, a civy, itas all poetry and hidden meanings or simple meanings . Its really a fantasy movie at this point. Still not quite sure whats gonna happen. Well thats ominous hes got radio contact with the overwatch. Kurtz is just a scary looking dude. Oh shit its the chefs head. Gross. Seriously sick. I guess he got him for going on the radio. eyes looking at him. Kurtz looks like the craziest character in any movie ever! I cant really put it together its like a series of tortures or trial Willards goota go through. 1967. Yea just a couple comments. After that wild barbaric display, he rolls up in some fresh pjs sporting a time magazine. Hes gonna read to him. After all that death he surrounded by children very bizzare. Very gentleman like too. Experts.. That word is thrown around a little too much. He quotes the time magazine hes like how do things smell soldier? He lets him go. After saying a few words and soime basic rules. Dont lose the magazine clippings. Not like he gets much air mail i suppose. Then Willard and Kurtz have a date for later to discuss. Well Kurtz has the advantage, He must be trying to recruit him otherwise why would he let up a bit. One step out he passes out. Gets dragged to another gets brought back to life slowly. Food slowly as kurtz watches from a smokey background. Catches a fly then lets it go. Hes reading from a book. Ok comic relief thats why the photojournalist there. Cant land a space ship on a fraction. Those old stone carvings wildest set ever. Kurtz like discusses how willard can kill him but he cant judge him. He says it coool like. I think Kurtz wants him to do the job. And , willard he says A man broken apart from them and then himself. Horror and mortal terror are you friend, if not they are enemies to be feared. Sorry Kurtz! had to make myself a bagel. Maybe send me some water in a little cup to drink thru bamboo cage. lol. This is it the finale. Im sad its coming to an end. Whose the better character willard or Kurtz, thats a tough choice. Im gonna go with Kurtz, just the wildest larger than life character with a cult following. Sinister serious scary. Willards just an errand boy sent by grocery clerks. Oh god. The polio vaccinne story and the pile of arms, im sorry everyone this just the goriest shit but gotta get through it. Thats just a horrible story his words are rated R or rated X for hardcore disgusting. But thats his character the most savage shit. Killing without prejudice . Judgement. the judgement defeats the killers. ends the speech with how he like his son to kno what he did everything that willard saw, So i guess hes accepted willard is the one to kill him. Is there any other way out but death for the kurtz doesnt look like it. Willard got a new mission now. And the cow party. Another carnage the killing of the water buffalo. The twist of the story Kurtz wants willard to do it. Nartin sheen and that crazy come out of the water scene. Its very ceremonial both the water buffalo. Drop fire on em but cant write fuck on the airplane cause its obscene. Its hard to watch seriously. with the doors playing in the background probably the most hardcore finale ever in any movie ever. You gotta feel sad for Kurtz. And the cow. But with that Kill Willard can move on and the rest of the group get a big feast. Visceral and gross and close up. Willard sits behind the typewriter. Somehow everyone knows the deeds been done. Couple hundred in this scene no doubt. Close up and with a axe. He gets the papers and proceeds out. No one says a word to the captain as he walks out. Takes Lance by the hand like a small remnant of humanity. PBR street gang. Just 2 of em left on the boat now. The horror. The horror. Word thats haunt willard foreever. Im sure willard went back to the guys house to scare his kid too lol. I dunno what can I say Bravo. Most hardcore shit ever. Very unpalatable and weird. That woulda sucked to be in Nam. As far as the acting 10/10 The sets amazing the effects amazing. Its a freaking masterpiece. Marlon Brando like wtf. Unreal.. Probably wont watch an epic one like that on the blog for a while that was intense. Like after im gonna watch the making of.. and im sure ill knock this into 10k plus words no problem. My impressions is fuck that movie is hardcore. I must have missed alot of It watching it the first few times, this time I really got into it.

Olympic madness 3

Wooo after some blog malfunctions and just a hilarious error I made.
July 31.
I made myslef laugh and the olympic blog mission continues.
To bodly mock advertisements and offer my two bit comments on what I see on the TV.
Ok olympic golf to get it going.
You know it olympics day and night no sleep till its over.
I need total coverage.
Just some sights youll never forget.
I was impressed with the womens judo.
Some boxing.
Now watching some golf action.
The course is prestine and the trees look slighty diferent than america, I mean theyre still trees but to me its noticeable.
Unreal a mullet!
Whatever respect. Mullet in the 2021s It would be stereotype to name the country youll just have to guess.
Theres a Canadian on the group im watching.
Usa is in the lead on the group im watching.
Watched Canada. Corey score a birdie.
I love me some Tiger woods ps2, I could watch this all day.
Really its a toss up between the baseball and golf and baseeball has taken a back seat to this ‘action’ lol.
Golf like baseball is a gentleman’s sport. Even funner to watcth.
Yo. James bond neew moviee commercial. October 8th. Gotta love the new James Bond.Im a movie buff som im always excited with the new adaptation.
James bond thats another brand I can get behind. Hows James gonna deal with covid ? probably woop its ass thats what.
i mean it was cool before golden eye, but yea golden eye when it was really the modern James bond to me. Eveyrthing before was just a litle fanstastiq 70s style it just wasnt as cool as Pierce Brosnan. Liek thee villains were cheesy. But its still good shit. Like Jaws and razor hat guy. And how bout that Austin Powers Just the ultimate bond pardoy. 90s was the shit. Do yourself a favor and youtube that austin powers theme song. That gets my seal of approval. Think how awesome the world would be if that was your personal theme song rolling into work. Its just maybe one step below the tmnt them song for me. That takes mee back lol. Makes me wanna be a secret agent ahaha. Outstanding. Michael Meyers give that man a medal. Miss that dude. Lol just browsed the twitter he posting shit about storm area 51 lol rock on dude. Double outstanding. Looks like a comedian first. Parody master really. Shrek austin powers i mean come on.
Id like to see Kurt Russell and Myke Myers in something hilarious, almost half serious then full on awkward slapstick yea. Hmm I just saw the double boom mics set up at the tee off Thats how they get that crisp tee off sound. In stereo. That kinda made my night austin powers theme.
Ok USA stil winning. Hes smiling after a missed-ish shot recovery. Just reminds me always in the mood for a good laugh. Watching this girl try to run over her ex bf on crahing her car into everything but him. Psycho not that funny. Ok funnier than that its a olympian wearing a mask making him look crazy, A cat pissed off the owner put a mask on him. Donkey in a pool. A funny parnk where bros go to slap hands but from the girls view it looks like the dude about to slap her butt, the girls proceed to laugh their proverbial butts off lol that a good one. Lol A dog that chewed up the how to train your adopteed dog dvd. lol.
Yo olympic news, canada vs USA womes soccer. set the alarm. Oh god lol, aguy trying to drink outa a bottle has a malfunction spraying everywhere is proper hilarious.
Ok some olympic boradcasters dancing on stage not knowing they live. A golfer swearing loud enough that hes heard live. A garden hose spraying outta control looking like thrash rocker.
A parent imitating her kid dancing in most embarassing fashion. A prom photo from the 90s thats hilarious. alright lol. A buddha on a roomba to star wars theme song lol.
Still golf lol.
relaxing to watch lol.
not much to say its exactly like othere gold cept its olympic.
One golfer has a nice greeen shirt on. Then a view from inside the sand bunker. Like the camera inside the bunker. Wow amazing save from the bunker. Watching the american from before Tied wityh slovakia for first.

Far fetched but yo I read some Ken Follet buddy the layers of deception dont seem so far fetched. Otherwise its good fodder if i ever was an author spin those tales of mystery lol.

It was girl in whitee for argentina-maybe ok so she goes bunker shot. Misses getting out of the bunker, next shot perfect hits the pin and goes right in. Pretty good distance and good strong shot out the bunker. Nelly Korda USA has a checnce to win. nSecond while im watching. It was Argentina with the nice save to end up even. Got a canadian at +2 thats pretty far back.
Next basketball over. 77-70 Serbia.
Got the golf going on and mens spring board its like do a dozen flips and dont make a splash. Justg seen Japan do amazing trick get a standing ovation from the crowd.
Holy, China guy one ups him with a extra flip. Theyre faces all contorted with inertia pretty funny, but equally cool. I did some diving classes but nothing like that. Fuckin olympians man lol. The slow motion fasces cant get enough. The China team beasts at the diving unfortunately one fellow didn’t go as far as he planned and looked fairly sad. That finishes that event next was a interview with Simone Biles, on the NBC. And, still golf. Boring medal ceremony highlights. Its a local news fgor a city im unsure of. Interesting Buffalo. Tony Hawk on a Uber commercial. Same Forces commercial. Its alrigth I guess lol.
Domincan, USA womens arena volleyball , and golf. Terry Fox on the TV. Theres a champion, didnt even need to win olympics. Raise a fist for Terry Fox, and say his name.
Womens volley ball exciting rallies. Several smashing as saves. Dominican putting up a good battle to USA however they are behind. Its exciting to watch though. Thats awesoime the have the double smash one fake then one real to confuse the opponent. Exciting match im stoked. Hopefully dominican can tie it. Pretty close to being tied. im assuming USA won.
Skateboarding now. Watching some skateboard some big air in the halfpipe park. Its not street so much seeing some kickflip transfers.

Anyways Canada winning so far but its close. Ok Canada won keeping up with some CBC and Judo coverage. The Judo is in a massive Pagoda style building. Like 6-7 edges. Did I tell tyhe world yet about my Sumo wrestler dream, it was amazing. Well I watched that NBC sports coverage at the Sumo place it was awesome. Now im watching the CBC coverage. Literally the only time I watch CBC, sorry CBC-news you are hot garbage! Auight I conced the CBC sport olympic coverage is ok. Gonna watcch some Judo now. Ok iot seperated 9x roof slats. Cool looking building. Shady Elnahas for team Canada ranked 9th. The stadium is lighttly packed. Rigth away theyre grabbing the gis. ITs UAR vs Canada. L Remarc.. Canada won right on dude./ He looks strong UAE looks disapointed. Wicked throw he changed direction as a suprise, grabbed opponents right arm, and simultaneously trapping the right leg. Took openent down. Oh next match. Wow Shady is only 23 right on. Canada vs azerbaijan now. Wow just flips his oppenent throws him in thee air. Twice threw him twice! Holy shit this guy wins. He got his defensive stance with arms in the air. Good balance. He really goes for the gi grip then try to toss him. Aight after a small battle nice throw drops him on his shoulder injures him maaybe winded him Azerbaijan has a limp. HEs still coming for some more, actualy they just huig its over. Zelym Kotso. Its really hard to get all the details watching live. These highlights are awesome though.

Got some track and field. 21- 26 years old. I seen Usain Bolt on a peleton commercial. Ay a Qatar runner. Its hurdles too.
Cool little camera follwing the runner like a horse racing track\. Way to go Qatar runner won. Whoa hes fast. like 8 hundtreths of as second off the World record fast. His name is Abderrahman Samba.
Ok more hurdles.
21-25 yrs old competitors mens. You got 9 lanes. Oh Japan runner, and USA competing this round. Sechelles Mozambique to name a few more. Jamaica. 8 runners lane 1 not used. For me its hard to tell whose leading with the curve in the track. Looks liek Jaamaica, won Mr. Hyde. another runner 8 hundreths of a second off the world record. Lol as you get processed out of the track you get your choice of a drink looks like some snacks and a mask. American runner close second. Top 4 move on. These stadiums just all mostly empty.
cnadian forces comercial lol Cheese. Join the army first to get sent in the shit underfunded from a shit government! There to rescue elders in old folks homes from covid, there for the forest fires. There for photo ops, but when its time for funding “asking for too much”. The latest pistol, boat, jet procurements, botched by bureaucracy. Cant even go to parliament and do your job during a pandemic. Im not done either. Covid vaccine mandatory nope. How bout that Major carreer ruined during the vaccine ill call it ‘procurement’. The ‘architect’, the sexual misconducts. The groper. The list just goes on. Thats my opinion on the join the forces commercial while im trying to casually watch olympics lol. Should just use a trudeau in his world war 1 outfit poster for recruiting lol. Now thats a good laugh. Aight enough BS. More running! Did I just see the german runner slick back his eyebrows ahaaha. Some really stylish sunglasses in this batch of runners. One is like a liquid metal chrome all one piece. The other is thin black frames with crazy angles. The annoying looking thing with hurdles gotta plan your steps out pre-jump. Noticing a few long stepper, and short steppers. I love the olympics just a bunch of countries sending their best for athletics ina friendly ish competition. Even ROC Atheletes gotta love em. Thew ROC plays Tchaikovsky song for medal ‘procurement’. Oooh javelin toss, and a outdoor track. Love that Jamaica yellow on black with green/gold trim. I dunno i love the forces and our history just sayin incompetents government could do more. Yea couild be worse but this is Canada not about bein the worst its about being the best and lending a helping hand. I guess thats all Ill say about that. Ok new round got Orangee shirt putting up some fists. Usa pointing at the USA on hsi shirt. You got Czech republics makes a heart emoji with his hands. USa with the huge strides. making ground. Usa no problem ewioonning Benjamin looks like hee could go twice as far no problem. Its like they race you then shoo you away. You know what gonna take it a litte further:” commercials are fuckin stupid. Advertisers, RBC athletes, Coke and Macdonalds for the olympics. Gimme a fucking break. Advertisers; oooh lets portray this in totally false pretense. Love when Ronaldo pushed the coke bottles off the table. Its likee yea I drink cola sometimes its plasatered everywhere. I dunno why I havent boycotted that shit, like nestle the products still end up in my house and car lol. Yea pick up those bottles on the beach. Plant that tree im so impressed. Now Gatorade ( yellow) thats a product I can get behind. Gatorade yellow is a miracle product.
Nice ok satistfied on my advertiser bashing. Watching the Womens tunisia boxer, sticking heer tongue out like the detroit Tigers ahaha. There some good sports they always do a little camera dance. Aigh Burge King Plant whopper. Ok next commerical asian girl gets ignored then passed to and scores .. after she was ignored smile on her face. Canadian tire.

Took openent down. Oh next match. Wow Shady is only 23 right on. Canada vs azerbaijan now. Wow just flips his oppenent throws him in thee air. Twice threw him twice! Holy shit this guy wins. He got his defensive stance with arms in the air. Good balance. He really goes for the gi grip then try to toss him. Aight after a small battle nice throw drops him on his shoulder injures him maaybe winded him Azerbaijan has a limp. HEs still coming for some more, actualy they just huig its over. Zelym Kotso. Its really hard to get all the details watching live. These highlights are awesome though.

cnadian forces comercial lol Cheese. Join the army first to get sent in the shit underfunded from a shit government! There to rescue elders in old folks homes from covid, there for the forest fires. There for photo ops, but when its time for funding “asking for too much”. The latest pistol, boat, jet procurements, botched by bureaucracy. Cant even go to parliament and do your job during a pandemic. Im not done either. Covid vaccine mandatory nope. How bout that Major carreer ruined during the vaccine ill call it ‘procurement’. The ‘architect’, the sexual misconducts. The groper. The list just goes on. Thats my opinion on the join the forces commercial while im trying to casually watch olympics lol. Should just use a trudeau in his world war 1 outfit poster for recruiting lol. Now thats a good laugh. Aight enough BS. More running! Did I just see the german runner slick back his eyebrows ahaaha. Some really stylish sunglasses in this batch of runners. One is like a liquid metal chrome all one piece. The other is thin black frames with crazy angles. The annoying looking thing with hurdles gotta plan your steps out pre-jump. Noticing a few long stepper, and short steppers. I love the olympics just a bunch of countries sending their best for athletics ina friendly ish competition. Even ROC Atheletes gotta love em. Thew ROC plays Tchaikovsky song for medal ‘procurement’. Oooh javelin toss, and a outdoor track. Love that Jamaica yellow on black with green/gold trim. I dunno i love the forces and our history just sayin incompetents government could do more. Yea couild be worse but this is Canada not about bein the worst its about being the best and lending a helping hand. I guess thats all Ill say about that.

Space Jam 2 – 2021

Yo I seen it.
Opening day.
Movie was awesome.
Lebron James legendary.
Just so many Cameos.
The hype in this movie.
Its cool hanging out with LeBron and Fam.
Soundtrack wild.
Don cheadle, lol, little heavy on the Don cheadle, but its cool hes a good actor.
Surprising villain.
This movie just all around good family time.
Movie is about family.
Must be kinda hard to be the son of NBA player, just in terms of big shoes to fill.
But, hell I wish LeBron was my Dad id be so proud.
Just that slam dunk action, jock jams, mixed with animations and classic characters.
Teamwork, feeling down, nto giving up, having fun.
Acceptance in people.
Lebron speech about how it was when he was a kid, and how that didnt help him be a dad.
That was deep.
And Dom, well spoken too.
So i like that commeraderie.
When they started having fun and not all court boss style.
Even bugs was like nah im not playin unless you playin.

I dont even know how they decided to roll with it and the WB server room, but it worked out.
And, just awesome to have everyone join in.
Im not hating on it at all.
It is about fun, and the balance of winning and fun, kind of an abstract thing.

Goon squad.
Awesome characters.
As a kid I would be stoked on the effects.
Im just like more substance than just special effects these days.

Tune squad hell yea feel like a kid again.
I especially like how they had tro go to every warner bro world to collect the team.
Just so fun.
Its oozes fun and im happy for everyone that got to participate in it.
Its like yea sure little marketing and making money but its NBA superstars with classic cartoon characters.
Who wouldnt want to be in a cartoon. Cept maybe who framed.. or cool world, but those are still the predecessors.
Eveeryone at the movie, everyone around it has a smile.
Just looking at Lebrons twittr everyone having a good time.
I felt I was part of it all too not just standing by.

sports cartoon 3d live action crossover
Something for everybody.
Well in the real NBA its tied 2-2 suns and bucks
Im not even mega basketball fan.
But I like Space Jam, and the athletes, pageantry.
For me personally I admire athletes and wish I would known better when I was a kid to dream big.
Makes no difference now still tryingt o be my best self.
And, really can enjoy that feel good movie as an adult.
Props to LeBron.

Some old characters from the first one film.
You know what im doing next ahaha.

Creepshow ’82

Ok this movie was the cats ass.
George A Romero makes the best movies, this one too with some writing from Steven King.
If your a sadist like me and love twisted revenge plots and 80s cheezy horror carnage.
Cameos galore.
This was definetly a top choice on this list.
Right from the beginning with the asshole dad and the kid getting yelled at.
First story with the fathers day was ok. I like the Ed Harris, the dancing the old reich lady its set like a clue house, then chaos ensues as the dad wants his cake lol. Just people that dont like each other. Ed Harris is cool. Skeleton is cool. YUea like James said it was a ok start to the movie. My personal favorite is the weeds on, with Stephen king acting himself. Freaking awesome. Wasnt expecting that. Gonna say this on my favorite one. The set, the isolation, the doubts the drinking the symptoms. All in all its just a amazing story and I feel creeped out by it. The light innocent thing, just growing till it becomes a problem. the set evolution is really amazing. Just that farmhouse too is just so nasty too. Left me wanting more. so lets see Stephen king stories I know.. Cujo, that was a good one. The one about the kidnapped author funny family guy spoofed it. It is creepy though. Hmm It, Shining, Carrie, green mile. Anyways yea to see him act was a treat creepy story. Next the box wiht the creature in it from antartica. Yea this one was good it was just no idead what the hell was going on. Funny scenes funny acting, the character everyone hates. The awesome acting from the 2 older gentlemen. The sinister plot to gewt his annoying wife lol. And then the bonding of tghe dudee and the mosnter as he throws it off a chasm. I dunno was good wasnt the greatest. I wanted tyo see more of the monkey thing, it had small sense of cheering for the monster lol Gotta mention that unboxing scene seemed like it took 25 mins. Same as stephen doing thee bucket of water.
After that was the roach building. That was was pretty good. Had like a sanatarium feel to that white building. And just more isoltion more phone, convos. Neat acting cause hes acting his own self. Hates the bugs, had he considered going outside. ANyways when the power goes out the whjjole place falls apart. And that creepy exterminator guy getting stuck in the elevator dont help. Just makes for a uncomfortable strange scene. I liked it. Its like eventualy the bugs win. Just some nasty scenes, just that music and uncontrollable aspect of it all.
Then it finishes off with thee voodoo doll and the garbage man. i just i rmemeeber some of the 80s and the wresting, and you just dont see that much anymore like the ]kurt russell trucker character.People must be offended, is also a response to that. Making a film the grosest most graphic with sinister plots. Its like your offened by that wait till you see this and they went all outy and im glad they did. Result is a movie unlike really anything ive seen, mega cameos, comic book style. So yea that was a pleasant surprise. Now I own it on youtube too. And stoked on my purchase too.
Nice package too.
Proffesional.
I wanna know more about both of em Romero and King.
___ watched the forest Gump too was good been a while.
Funny cause I was watching some curb your enthusiasm and Leon had some comments on Forrests life.

From Hell It Came ’57

Love me some Apostrophe number.
___
Been a min.
OK its definitely a campy opening not that bad though.
Its still a scene, short run time.
Theres chickens at the sacrifice altar just some stakes in the ground. laughing emoji.
Black plague, and some sorcery or more like a caucasian voodoo guy that kinda looks like Seagal.
I think its kinda silly so far not sure I could do better. Id be willing to try though, but need that capital and people.
Reminds me of the possesed king, that allows all sorts of bad things to happen in a semi-passive way.
Lol the dialogue I mean theyre looking in the rights direction, but something bout that is super funny. 64
American medicine, and the guy gets betrayed by the wife.
Thats a motley crew i dunno its fun. They have a little hip shaking party after the son dies.
Hey a chem lab. Lets see beakers, posters, fridge cabinets, lamps, shades. Wooden retaining pillar.
Ventilation cabinet, or could be an oven. Many beakers and stands on the island style desk. A new character faces away to the chemist character. You wouldnt want to leave your soda layin around, and mistakenly pick up a giant beaker of something steamy. Wash down your burger. Or like back in the hold day eating a spicy pepper you just wash it down with something spicier.
Anyways speaking of burning theres a bunsen burner. Holy its a animal in the cage. the that I thought was a venting carbinte. Anyways just paused to look at everything. I guess dont realy get that option in the theatre but gives me a chance to slam on that keyboard and make some observations. Really with the blog can easily write with only looking at the screen. Theres also one of those anatomy human models.
___
More than a min this movie post in months in the making.
Gotta vote my allstar picks.

Get the white dudes acting as natives.
I dunno its ’57 aint so bad I like it so far.
The wake up.
lol.
Control yourself the acting is terrible.
So they dug a vertical grave.
So the acting is horrendous but its kinda funny
The lady was almost killed for witnessing the ceremony.
The widow she is.
Maybee shes the husband killer.
Shes like throwing herself or some kind of ulterior motives.
The more I watch it the more I appreciate the scenes and the character.
Gotta say im watching this show in my underwear on Saturday morning pretty awesome, i hope someone comes to the door so I can let a massive fart rip ,nnn-yellow.
Thats my idea of comedy.
Ok just killed myself laughing.
Ok so never seen this, the window character.
___ was abreak with some emails and Alice Cooper, Schools been Blown to PIECES! fuck yea that song rocks.
A youtube commenter hes like The wall, and Schools out, musta been rough on the 70’s kids tell you what.
Baseball too. Life is hard.
I digress.
Baseball complete heat wave.
Stock footage of a destroyer.
Helicopter and villager scenes thats makes me laugh.
I dunno its a nice set still.
Oh sweet so buddy is coming back from the dead.

The villager scenes are just the worst lol.
theyre like looking up at the helicopter.
Extra bottle of peerfume.
Outcast shower scene lol.

As a time capsule holds up great that was hard to watch seriously for 70mins took me a few month but now its done im glad.
I would totally watch that again.
Theres like nothing wrong with that movie, if you know what youre getting into.
I dont think this movie would go over really well if I was trying to show iut to friends and fam, anything more than this personal movie blog.
I liked it for a black and white movie too.
The characters so out there.
All you need to be an american , is some lab coats, cigarette danglin from your lip, suit jacket, open, panama hat.
Grab the women by the arm when you talking to em ahaha.
I dunno id like to see some people from the 50’s in current present time, that would be funny.
And, also the opposite, some super stereotype millennials lost in the 50s.
Like trying to improvise Google in the 50s. And, I remember some pre-internet times.
Fascinating.
That periodic table it was missing some elements.
Could you imaginge going back in time and explaining those types of things.
I like the connecticut yankee in King arthurs court. ITs a cool story idea.

Just gotta say too the Led Zeppelin VHS review on Cinnemassacre that was awesome love some led zeppelin and that was funny.
just somethings I woulda enjoyed as a kid, and still now.

Nuclear for Tyros

Nuclear for Tyros

Origins of Uranium.
What is Uranium?
Uranium is a atomic element number 92.
Its a silvery-grey metal in the actinide series. Its a hard dense metal. Uranium is denser than lead, slightly less dense than tungsten, and gold. Uranium can be found in a form called Pitchblende, or Uraninite on Earth.

Earthly origins are believed to be inherited by the solar system in one, or more supernova occurring approximately 6 billion years ago. Supernova is the end of the life cycle of a star. A star that suddenly increases in brightness because of a catastrophic explosion that ejects most of its mass. More recently second theory, that Uranium, other heavy metals, and gravitational waves ejected during a neutron star collision or a ‘merger.’

This artist’s impression shows two tiny but very dense neutron stars at the point at which they merge and explode as a kilonova. Such a very rare event is expected to produce both gravitational waves and a short gamma-ray burst, both of which were observed on 17 August 2017 by LIGO–Virgo and Fermi/INTEGRAL respectively. Subsequent detailed observations with many ESO telescopes confirmed that this object, seen in the galaxy NGC 4993 about 130 million light-years from the Earth, is indeed a kilonova. Such objects are the main source of very heavy chemical elements, such as gold and platinum, in the Universe.

Neutron star is a collapsed supergiant star. A teaspoon of Neutron star weighing around a billion tons. Havoc, and massive explosions if spoonful of neutron star matter suddenly appeared on Earth.
MIT tech video shows a great animation ‘ Neutron stars collide.’ Also the neutron star merger ejects gamma rays, in a pattern. Matter is ejected, many lightyears away. In 1604 Johannes Kepler observed and recorded the Kepler Supernova” in our galaxy.

Neutrons stars from the cosmos all the way to, bouncing neutrons out when splitting a Uranium atoms, at the atomic level.

Principles of nuclear.
What is nuclear?
Energy is the movement of atoms and molecules within a substance. Nuclear is relating to the nucleus of a atom.
Nuclear fusion is the reaction occurring inside the sun. With gravity the mass of the two atoms of Hydrogen combine together, and create a Helium. High temperatures, ionized, and confined/compressed with gravity.


Thats how the sun, and stars do it.

Experimental Tokamak technology.

‘Nuclear Fusion’ can create around 4 times as much energy as ‘Nuclear Fission’. Nuclear Fission reaction is whats happening in a reactor. In a U-235 fission energy is released, so much energy is released that there is a measurable decrease in mass, that means some of the mass is converted to energy.

In a reactor such as CANDU, the chance of a nuclear fission (energy) event is higher when the ejected neutron is slowed down. How do you slow down that neutron, with a moderator like a carbon, or a deuterium heavy water.


Chance of fission

Its a sustained chain reaction. Rutherford discovered some alpha particle scattering with the gold foil experiment changed the atomic model. Rutherford couldnt figure out why negative electrons didn’t automatically fall into the positively charged nucleus. It was Niels Bohr in 1913, discovered the valence electron levels studying the properties of the Hydrogen electrons.
First ‘Nuclear Fission’ was Dec 1938, Kaiser Wilhem Institute for Chemistry.
Dec 1942 was the Chicago pile -1 first sustained nuclear chain reaction.

Chalk River

In Canada it was Zeep: Zero energy Experimental Pile September 1945. And Chalk river the beginning of Canada CANDU nuclear. ZEEP NRX NRU SLOWPOKE


ZEEP

Accidents in 1952,1958, 2007, 2008, 2009 medical isotope shortage
In layman’s terms, nuclear elements don’t want to stay in a unstable form, so they degrade into more stable elements. This half-life process can take astronomical amount of time, to a few seconds. Radioactive decay means that elements will decay through alpha beta or gamma wave emission into more stable elements. For example Cesium will decay into Barium. While Uranium, Thorium Actinium all decay to different stable isotopes of lead.

During Radioactive decays, different particle/waves along with energy will be released.
Alpha, and Beta Particles. Gamma rays Neutron Radiation. The 4 types of radiation.
They were named in the order of discovery.
Alpha particles stopped by paper.
Beta particles stopped by aluminum sheet.
Gamma stopped by lead.

Cookies.
Imagine you had 4 cookies. One is a alpha emitter, one is a beta emitter, one is a gamma emitter and finally a neutron emitter.
You can throw one cookie away, but you have to put one in your pocket, one in your hand, and eat one.
Alpha particles are bad to vital tissue, so you probably don’t want to eat that one.
The Gamma emitter cookie, the gamma rays are likely to pass right through you inside, or out.
So this is the cookie deemed the one to eat.
Throw away the neutron emitter, like a buried used reactor core.
Keep the alpha particles away from your organs; the cookie in your hand.
Finally the beta particles shielded in your pocket.
The effects of beta particles can be similar to a sunburn effect on skin.

Y = Gamma

Note that it is the beta particles remaining in a carbon-14 sample the principles of carbon dating. Carbon-14 is radioactive. Measuring the beta particles it tells you how much carbon-14 left in the fossil which allows you to calculate how long ago the organism was alive.

CANDU reactor specifics.
Reactors are not all one shape, and size.
Evolutions in designs through R&D, disasters.
Pros and cons to different situations.
For the CANDU specific
ZEEP ’57 Origins of the bundle rod.

WR-1 tests with light water.
Zed-2 Is the test support reactor, Its the successor to ZEEP reactor. Designed by AECL fopr CANDU support It uses the 43 bundle CANFLEX fuel. SEU fuel, is just slight enhanced Uranium. For the Full core simulation. Its a nuclear historic landmark 2010. Its purpose is to test
CANDU 6 (600MWe)/ CANDU 9(900MWe) designs. The feature for selling CANDU was not needing the enriched fuels.

Selling CANDU to India, Pakistan, South Korea. 70s. Issues with some Romanian, and Argentina deals.

Advanced CANDU Reactor ACR project. To reduce costs, and some specific safety systems and redundancy. Moving to a light water reactor. ACR uses a more enriched fuel compared to the previous CANDU 6. But, not by much. ACR purpose was to test with other organic moderators.
The original thought process was that using natural uranium fuel would keep the costs relatively low compared to the more expensive enriched Uranium costs.
Also, it was though that the CANDU model was safer from proliferation because of its non-enriched fuel. However that proved to be untrue with the Smiling Buddha India bomb Canada received some blame.
The ACR , using a slight more enriched fuel, is able to have a smaller core, more output.
After the ACR design there was the sale of AECL reactor division to SNC Lavalin in 2011. And, in 2014 SNC announced a partnership with CNNC to support sales, and construction of the existing CANDU designs. Including a plan for the “Advance Fuel CANDU reactor” ‘AFCR.’
Argentina 2018 reactor. “Atucha III.”Hasnt started yet can speak to some associated extra costs and regulations.
Atucha has a horizontal fuel channel, with crane refueling.

Atucha I & II
Still in Canada every reactor over budget. Commercial reactor company takes the risk, with the loans. From engineer design to the end power customer there is lots of potential for human error from the safety components, to corruption in politicians. Much more regulations than a coal plant. Not much more incentive. Thought experiment: If only the government could fund the reactor, and as tax payers and power consumers, we could pay the plant off and reap some of that 5 cent estimated kWh. Per kWh Ontario Its more than 10x than the kWh prices in USA and abroad. Nuclear Power Economics World-Nuclear.


CANDU Calandria

CANDU Vertical Fuel Channel
The CANDU reactor is maybe the only one I know with a vertical wall fuel channel. This design allows it to be refueled during operation. Put the fuel in. The Uranium fission event occurs with the fuel rod, and moderator. The extra neutrons in the heavy water make the chance of fission higher. Everytime a uranium atom is struck by the extra neutron creates that chain reaction; a extra neutron, and some energy. The heavy water is a coolant moderator. Graphite could also be used. The heavy water pipes around the the boiling steam vessel, so that the radioactive coolant, and steam are separated. That steam spins a turbine attached to generator that creates the electricity. Or, if you only wanted heat you could skip the electricity generation, and pipe some hot water through a pipe network. In the case of too much fission, and need to turn it off, there are control rods. 2 types of rods, fuel rods, and the control rods. Control rods are present in reactors and usually contain the “Neutron poison” Gadolinium Nitrate for CANDU . In a RBMK model its boron carbide. It creates a critical mass poison absorbing neutron and stopping that critical mass chain reaction. After the CANDU fuel is used up there is a period of wet storage.

Wet Storage

Then dry storage. Concrete air canisters, MACSTOR units. Dry storage containers.

MACSTOR

Theres some debate on the waste storage ill get into later. But the main concepts are security, monitoring, cross generational costs. Have the used fuel travel not too far ideally, and keep it dry as to not accidentally get in the water table with the astronomical half lives. Cross multi generational wastes could be troublesome for future humans. On the other hand advance fuel recycling is a real concept that could have reactors re-using fuels. Reprocessing fuels. Thorium reactors burning those wastes into something more manageable, Also some of these ‘fission products’ could be components in future nuclear tech.

Using nuclear tech.
I am for the use of safe nuclear technologies, and against the destruction of the human species.
When nuclear technologies were first discovered it was the wild west of the nuclear days.
I890s, and 1900s fluoroscope experiments with no protections because the dangers of X-ray weren’t yet known. X-ray was discovered after experiments with the Crookes tube. X for unknown. Its a cathode ray tube with more vacuum. Its the successor to the ‘Geissler tube’ which is similar to a neon light. Crookes tube is a vacuum tube with 2 electrodes, and variable voltage. Basically while testing with the Crookes tub scientist discovered two things, the Cathode ray as seen in on tube televisions. And,b more interestingly with the Crookes X-ray tube, deflecting the ray. Take a cathode ray, put stuff in its path. They discovered they could knock around the inner electrons of an atom into a higher energy level. Then, as the electrons return to their original valence level X-Ray is emitted in a process called X-ray Fluorescence. Wilhem Rontgen was one of the first to investigate this new ray. It is a wavelength and not just any random wavelength its was measurable, and consistent with different elements.

A lot of scientists exposing themselves learning about the electromagnetic spectrum. Now we have lead vests, and no longer use x-rays for trivial things like 1950s shoe fitting machines, or entertainment.
In the 1930s People putting radium in their mouths and painting it on things with Marie Curie.
“Radium Jaw.”
I would say Chicago pile one is likely the dawn of a new age nuclear.
The atomic bombs, and the end of ww2, golden age of nuclear. There’s more than just the bombs, reactors, and X-Rays. There are many evolving technologies in medicine, energy, agriculture, industrial applications, and safety.
Ultrasound is a non-ionizing sound wave. Beam transducer, emits and receives beam wave, or beam wave pulses. Its a wider wave. And the tech can be used in medical applications or is used to map, and find large objects under water. How many times have I heard human body is 80% water. Someone decided to ping themselves. A predecessor to the ultrasound was the hydrophone. A device created by M Richardson in 1912 as response to titanic sinking. RW Boyle was a student in Manchester, learning this, then returned to University of Alberta begun ground breaking research on ultrasonics, This tech lead to some sonar and submarine sinking capabilities April 23 1916 first known sinking of a submarine using this tech. Nowadays theres new research on high intensity focused ultrasound, actually able to control to high points in the wave to a focal point. Its non invasive low cost therapy that can at minimum outperform the current standard of care. This tech was developed and discovered in the 1940s but refined in the 90s using magnetic resonance. My understand is using magnetic resonance to alter/adjust the wavelength into desired positions below the skin. The tissue is only destroyed at the focal point. At the intersection, and peaks of the the beams.

CT Scan.
Circular X-Ray. The CT stands for computerized tomography. Everything is motorized the X-Ray source, the detectors, the patients table. And, the display and operation is computer assisted.
CT is thinner compared to the MRI in appearance usually. CT scan radiation dose is 100-1000 times stronger that conventional X-Ray. CT scans are now using AI to triage aorta chest patients. Its a new AI solution that leverages deep learning algorithms for emergency triage of deadly vascular conditions.


Siemens CT

Siemens Wheelie Model

MRI Is Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Non ionizing.
Its a medical application of nuclear magnetic resonance. Makes use of the nuclear properties of atoms spin, and dipoles correlating data. It uses radio waves, and the properties of a positive Hydrogen Nuclei, and atoms in their regular, and excited phases. The radio waves interprets the data into imaging. Its polarizing all the atoms in the sample, and the radio waves are able to interpret that change. The change is measured in frequencies. Don’t wear jewelry next to the opening, it is very magnetic. MRI requires the system component room Helium, and magnets. Outdoor infrastructure components. Magnetic shielding safety considerations.

Siemens MRI

I couldn’t imagine being the first test subject to have all your water-hydrogen’s polarized.
Recently it has been found that inhaling Xenon-129 gas for a few moments can produce excessively high resolution lung images for example. MRI can be used to map, and track connections in the brain, and where the blood brings oxygen. Xenon arclamps closely mimic natural sunlight in a theatre setting. Ionized gas.

Xenon Arclamp

Agriculture nuclear tech is my favorite.
IAEA has a cool website shows some peaceful applications.
There is food irradiation with cobalt-60 gamma source. Destroys the mold.
Sterile insect technique that (SIT) sterilizes populations of fruit flies. Good for exports.
Atomic gardening, and Isotope analysis. Identifying drought resistant banana varieties for example.

Carbon Soil Detection Kit (IAEA)

Using Carbon-13 to measure and track how CO2 is being absorbed and released
Advanced nuclear spectrometers to analyze the carbon content in soil with test kits. Then custom tailor manure solutions based on the results.

Industrial & commercial.
Russian nuclear Ice Breakers, arctic tourism.

Artika Class

Nuclear Smoke Alarms utilize alpha particles and detectors. Americium-214. If you removed the ceramic chamber, and swallowed it. Its about six times desired yearly exposure.
Non-destructive testing, method to check welds, or the integrity of components that cannot fail, in mining, pressure vessels, aircraft, machinery.
Ground-penetrating radar is electromagnetic radiation in microwave band.
I mentioned Carbon dating (radio carbon dating) for organic materials uses the halflife of Carbon 14 and the neutrons remaining.
Commercial, and research reactors and the fission products that can be used for variety of purposes, such as health, and other research.

Enriching uranium takes some advanced centrifuge tech. 2 types of enrichment. Enriched uranium for research, and commercial reactors, ill call that 20% U-235. Then there’s the weapons grade enriched at around 90% U-235. So some concerns of Iran recently getting past 60% grade. In the news one of their research facilities was sabotaged.

The quick version is that if your looking for weapons grade your looking for the rarer isotope of Uranium the U-235. It has a different weight than the more common isotope U-238. Change of pressure in a vessel to separate the particles, or spin the gaseous isotopes in a centrifuge allowing you to separate the 2 isotopes.

There is a new laser excitement method being developed right now that sounds interesting. Bomb tech itself has evolved. Im not going to get into that, Id prefer to spend my efforts with the peaceful nuclear applications for humanity. And, despite the fact the Karachi plant was intended for peaceful uses was still ultimately used for bomb tests. The bomb still remains deterrent, and posture. In the 60s there was the NthCountry experiment, where 3 students recently received their PHDs in physics tasked to design a nuclear bomb.

Nth Country Experiment

It was experiment in the proliferation capabilities. Its an interesting experiment because it shows what some determined pros could achieve, and what that would look like.

Chief engineer recommendations.
Gord Brooks was the Chief Engineer for CANDU operations almost 40 years. Reading his content he has a good understanding of all things CANDU. Can be found at CANTEACH

Gord L. Brooks

His perspective was; that there will be many engineer in demand jobs, and cheap nuclear power in Ontario, and out east. Theyre all ambitious, but reasonable, and looking from the 2020s would appear Nuclear in Canada has declined from those days. During the 70s oil crisis, and the oil prices going up. The world was after cheaper power sources.
Three Mile Island happened.
President Jimmy Carter had previously worked in the US Navy nuclear submarine program.

Lt. James Earl Carter Jr. USN

I watched the History Channel documentary. Could really see some panic, and fear in all those involved. Too much data, and incorrect data. I saw that sense of relief when the President arrived with his wife. If it was safe enough for the President to be on scene with his wife was re-assuring. Not only that the President had a background in nuclear. Unfortunately televised, and evacuated nearby towns, the damage in a sense was already done. Financial damage. Actually some house prices still fairly cheap next to that reactor, compared to the Bruce Power generating station.

The economics of a nuclear reactor.
Nuclear power generation will cost more, more regulations and inspections.
The trade off is more power cheaper in the long run compared to a coal or natural gas power plant.

In 1986 was the Chernobyl disaster. Operators decided to run a low power test that proved disastrous, first they shut it down, there was some Xenon gas neutron poisoning. Then they were trying to raise the power back up to pre-shut down levels, and kept inserting more fuel and didn’t know why the power wasnt picking back up. Eventually the reactor had a couple explosions. Theres also excess Hydrogen that causes the roof to blow off in some cases. The meltdown caused a mass of radioactive hot corium elephants foot. Chernobyl made the world take a second look at nuclear. Other reactors in different countries neighboring Chernobyl’s, safety systems were going off. The initial response was to pretend nothing happened. First responders to the Chernobyl site doing some scary clean up. Many perished.

Years later Fukushima showed that even with preparation, and good engineering you can have a earthquake, then get hit by a tsunami. 10 year anniversary of Fukushima disaster occurred this year. Japan is industrialized, and technologically advanced, and still had disaster as the world watched. Planning to begin releasing contaminated water back into the oceans. At a levels deemed safe by world scientists.
Germany In 2011, Chancellor Angela Merkel in response to the Fukushima and some heavy protest. Policy reversal commitment to close their reactors by 2022. Replaced with coal steam generation.
A study: The costs associated from increasing more coal power to the grid estimated in the 12 billion per year in increases in mortality, due to exposure to pollution from burning fossil fuels.
Siemens the German company announced complete withdrawl from the nuclear industry at that time.
At Three Mile Island, there was evacuations, no one was killed though. A fear in the air.
In Canada, maybe its a thought in some peoples mind as they drive by as routine or, on their way to work. Or, on January 12 2020 the Nuclear false alert, as part of a training error Pickering Nuclear Generating station mass message.

If anything, that gave a horrible perspective reminder on living next to nuclear power.
But, better safe than sorry. Lack of trust is the fallout from that scenario.
Otherwise no news is good news.
Fracking made natural gas cheaper.
Methane reforming tech could make the cost even cheaper.
Coal, oil diesel, and natural gas are the Nuclear competition, or alternative.
Natural gas has the combined cycle plant which is pretty competitive.
A fraction of the electricity used is generated from wind solar, bio fuels.
Now seeing the lumber prices skyrocket
Theres arguably some insane house prices next to Pickering and Bruce Power.
TMI plant mostly shut down and houses next to it were looking pretty affordable.
Ontario power generation is around more than half nuclear. The OPG, or Hydro.

Living next to a reactor at sea on a icebreaker, or a Nimitz class aircraft carrier. Under the sea in a submarine. A floating nuclear power plant could travel anywhere its needed. I could just imagine add some nuclear capabilities with the latest big off shore rig disaster you can remember. There wouldnt be anyone around, also that far away the logistics for disaster relief would be horrible.

Perspective living next to old Uranium mining sites like the Rabbit Lake, or Gunnar site.
The mining itself is relatively safe occupation. The clean up efforts in North Saskatchewan leave something to be desired. Especially from the old days, it was all profit. They flooded Gunnar Mine site, and more.


Gunnar Site I

Miners made all the money, and the government still arguing about clean up costs.
Gunnar Mine was abandoned in 1963 tax payers stuck with the clean up that is lame.
There is some tech, and remediation too bad we cant all just go destroy a piece of Canada to get our wealth 60 years ago with no consequence except to the people living now.

Gunnar Site II

There was a urgent need to build the atomic bomb, and Uranium meant wealth. Pop culture, sci-fi movie ‘The Cyclops’ 1957. Just a crazy film based on radiation uranium, and the man that mutated in the cyclops.

Scene from the movie ‘The Cyclops’

Anyways just how convenient the government is there to control everything regarding the uranium and atomic, but when the time comes for clean up , oh they’re nowhere to be found.
Another pattern, another loss of trust. So when they say they’ll clean up new sites, how about these old ones. Cross generational cleanup. I think people are ok cleaning up or doing the nuclear waste storage as long as its done safely, and it can be a decent job for someone like me.
It should be the corporation, and government funding all this, instead its the taxpayer.

Depleted Uranium Munitions

Depleted uranium. Weight of Uranium is heavy use your depleted uranium in munitions. Can actually cause some environmental effects. Don’t want to be inhaling those munition impact aerosols.

Sadly the future of nuclear lies in politics. Often politicians these days are only focused with the time they are in power. Some politicians want nothing to do with a pro nuclear position. And, its no wonder people are concerned with the bad track record cleaning up. Minister O’Reagan claimed there is no way to net zero without Nuclear. We get some lip service, then disappear till the next scandal, or election. Why put a former ‘TV personality’ in charge of nuclear?
Even with the simplest understanding he acknowledges that the best way to reach the zero carbon goals is in the nuclear.
So what are they waiting for ?

Ontario hydro and the debt its left its customers. Its almost like the game of telephone, where the initial message(engineer reactor design) gets so mutilated by politicians, and construction, that by the time it gets to the customer its an abomination of the former self.

Gerald W. Brown for example, it concerns me because, right away the fire safety circuitry to the control room the safety systems implementation, corners were cut.
Nickel, and diming to save a penny in costs. Ends in bankruptcy.
Nuclear is not the place should be cutting corners.
Yet, it is a common occurrence. Happening in Ohio too, electricity customers held hostage.
The Gerald W Brown fire safety incident both shocking, and reassuring that atleast some of the processes work. At least some people care.

Gerald W. Brown

If only we could apply the same science, and physics to the politics as we do the nuclear reactor maybe we’d get somewhere.
What do we get instead Coal expansion on the AB eastern slopes.
Elk river fish poisoned by selenium in BC next door.
Atleast when Uranium is mined, one fuel pellet can create as much energy as one ton of coal, 149 Gallons of Oil, 1700 cubic feet of natural gas.

At Wylfa UK, Nuclear power plant was canceled due to the 20 billion pounds debt too much. It was meant to be a Hitachi. This is maybe one of the unsuccessful projects Ive seen. Japan with the 121.64 Billion nuclear exports in 2020, despite Fukushima mind you. Thats a big number.

Wylfa

How many reactors were constructed here with this massive deficit. Zero.

New(ish) Green Party leader Annamie Paul Nov 6 2020

Thats her twitter statement, completely disagree with. South Korea with the impressive reactor build times. How about Oklo Gabon, the natural reactor found in nature. Scientists also used the Gabon site to see how far fission products could get away from the source, and the answer is not very far.


Oklo Gabon – Natural Reactor

Anyways, government has invested in SMR research. SMR in Canada.
Moltex, has never built as reactor.
And the Hitachi General electric BRWX-300 was studied in a report.
Nothing against Hitachi but I think thats what Chief Engineer Gord Brooks was talking about, with nuclear opportunity fizzling away.
Note instead of Canada designing anything, theyre just awarding some huge contracts.
There’s a SNC design 2 pages online CANDU style no one talks about.
It is true there are many designs, and no government wants to be the first investor in uncharted water. In the USA at the Department of energy, they ran a contest for best SMR, and the design was the XE-100.


Xe-100 Pebble Bed

Theres also the Nuscale power.
I personally think the pebble; bed reactor design and the advance triso fuel is amazing engineering.
The silicon carbides surrounding the fuel means the fuel container, is the waste container. All the fission products remain in trapped within the fuel casing. There will be 4x under construction soon. This is the high temperature Gas cooled reactor. I believe its a evolution from coolant reactors. The benefit of SMR, replacing diesel generators. Modular sections could virtually replace a coal power plant. Passive safety. Walk-away safety. The XE-100, 400 yards safety perimeter vs 10 miles. Place is even hiring.

My opinion on the CANDU reactor.

I got nothing against it. Its had a turbulent business history. I feel bad for the people of Romania and the people promised power and for whatever reason it gets canceled, or costs are ran up.
Lets see though does UK, France, or USA use CANDU? No.

In China, CANDU makes up a tiny 4.3 % of their reactors. If you include the ‘under construction’ the total is 3.07% of reactors in China operating, and under construction are CANDU.

So much for : “Energy prices will be too low to measure.” Line from the 60s. I’m not seeing much of the CANDU chief engineer recommendations followed neither. Now I have read some comments, its just wasting money going for investments in the heavy water reactor that we have technology for.
Time for R&D was years ago, not starting now. On some tech we already had. I look at the department of energy in the states, and then I look at Canada; its a complete joke. Sad looking at the CBC too from the 70s with some scientists having debate compared to now too. CANDU had a bright future, but a bit of a trainwreck as a export, and the nuclear Ontario Hydro power isnt competitive at all.

Its almost like the politicians can behave badly cause nuclear already has a bad rep.
Also I cant imagine oil, and coal barons being pleased about all this ‘free unlimited’ power.
Hypocrites in the west dictating who can have energy freedom. The west, and Europe creating wealth, pollution, and war during industrial revolution, turning around saying no power for you, only me. Developing nations using more energy which is good. Quality of life going up. Here in America energy use has tapered off. Now the challenge is conserving that energy, and doing more with less.


TRISO Fuel Upgrade

Everything evolves; the fuel upgrades, the safety systems, the smart grid housing. Some people will never be happy. In Las Vegas, there is Yucca Mountain which is supposed to be the Countries nuclear waste repository. With all the rail network, mountain, and Las Vegas being a undesirable city in the middle of the desert. Theres some debate, people from Nevada dont want the waste in their mountain. Biden administration is opposed to the Yucca Mountain project. Same thing in Canada with the Chretien nuclear waste agreements in Labrador.

Yucca Mountain

Enter the nuclear flask endurance testing.
Just the most ridiculous obscene testing with rail, road, and used nuclear fuel transport.
Even a rocket powered truck slamming straight into a wall. 1978 cask test. I recommend watching it.

Rocket-Powered Truck, Nuclear Waste Transportation Testing – Cask Test 1978

Ideally the waste would not have to travel far and set into a long term dry location. It could be jobs for the community. Burying underground in a desert maybe not the most ideal. Could always move it later, find another solution. Cross generational.
You’d have to keep people out that want to dig it all up, and eat it probably.

Texas Nuclear Waste Burial Site

Future of nuclear lies in politics, and economics.
I like the Tokamak fusion progress, and research. Id like to see the coal plant be switched to SMR pebble bed. Id like to see some inexpensive enrgy, and government investments.
Id like to see the politics, and politicians taken out of nuclear.
I think we can all agree on safe reliable power, and can do without the cutting corners to save 5 cents on everything. Pilfering politicians.
This assignment, and basic understanding of nuclear took some time.
Thats definitely a con for nuclear. its a complicated way to boil water, that takes time to learn and explain, operate safely. Who wants a disaster, or mine in their back yard.
Nuclear provides a good fraction of the worlds power free from carbon dioxide.
Irresponsible mining is a expensive problem left to communities, and taxpayers. Don’t get me started on the river dumpers too. Maybe don’t live downstream from a reactor in the 1950s. Those costs should be worked in before everyone cashes out. Proliferation, and premature destruction of the species is a concern. Carl Sagan was against proliferation, but in favor of using nuclear technologies.

Lots of work previous generations did to reduce nuclear warheads stockpiles during the cold war. Activists may protest nuclear, but think of this. Life of the Sun, even if humans last forever the bounds of the sun will supersede our current orbit. Stephen Hawking says humans must leave earth within 600 years. We are surrounded by nuclear with the US Navy & more. J. Bezos envisions a future where all the industry is off-world. It would be much better to use the resources, and industry pollute in space. If NASA can send nuclear components in space over cities atmospheres safely, I have hope for the rest of us.
Maybe if someone has access to power, internet, drinking water, they wont be in a nuclear terrorist killing mood.
Terrorist asides how many nuclear tests occurred anyways without my consent, or permission.
Proliferation of space is also becoming a concern. Must not allow space to become militarized.
Putting nuclear weapons in orbit would be stupid, and potentially catastrophic to the species.
Unless maybe it was a joint mission to nuke an asteroid.

Space. Id like to know more about the waters on Encaldus, and if I was astronaut dependent on that nuclear power Id want it to best tried tested, and reliable. Not the first test run.


Enceladus

How are you gonna power the Perseverance rover, or the Casssini spacecraft without nuclear?
How are you going to explore beyond the solar system without nuclear?

“No X-ray, medical hope, or electricity for you because I cant be bothered to learn nuclear.”

The heat, and power source are necessary for exploring beyond the reaches of our sun, when solar panels wont function. The recent Lunar Rover announced by Canada Space Agency, I bet you will have a nuclear power/ heat source. Utilizing computers, and components within operating temperatures in the cold of space. Any lunar base, any mars base will utilize a reactor of some type.

Moon Reactor

Even the design drawings include the reactor. Seems to me its worth the investments and experience. Im reading a sci fi book series, Asimov Foundation.

I really enjoy it. Its the story of the future of humans. They go through a nuclear rise, and fall in space. A society with no nuclear capabilities, or understanding cannot survive. The planet Trantor, the center of the empire outputs only law. I. Asimov was a biochemist and I like his view of nuclear in the future.

Lesson 2 Research
Isotopes:
U-238, U-234 (descendant of U-238), And U-235 Can be used as fuel in reactor, very high concentrated for weapons.
Those be the natural abundant, and 238 is the 99.3% natural form.
Some other artificial isotopes are 236, 233, 232 For example presence of U236 is formed from U235 fuel, after the neutrino captures that didnt cause fission. The presence of U236 in a sample concludes the sample has been in reactor.
CANDU Process :
Its a natural fuel U235 So basically mostly U28 0.7~0.9 % U235
What is Half life:
Time it takes for a sample to decrease radioactivity by half. Radioactive decay, going from unstable form to more stable form.
How long is uranium 235 half life is 700 million years. U-238 4.5 billion years.
Neptunium Plutonium traces fission.
Wastes wet storage and the MACSTOR , air cooled concrete, underground one day.

Lesson 4
Ionizing can remove a electron and cause charge.
Ionizing effects on water.
Different effects per different radiations.
Alpha makes Hydrogen peroxide
Beta makes beta decay can be used in reactor.
You can Gamma ray waste-water to break down organics
Why is there concern.
Basically you don’t want your body H2O molecules getting destroyed, you dont want your DNA destroyed. Causes Cancers. Too much radiation and youll get sick, and die, or vaporized in a blast.
Glass turns blue after long exposure to radiation its called Cherenkov Radiation.

Proceses for fuel
https://inis.iaea.org/search/search.aspx?orig_q=RN:19013875
CANDU reactors operate on a once-through, natural uranium fuel cycle. The process of turning the natural uranium into reactor fuel bundles is described. The components making up the fuel bundle are UO2 pellets, zircaloy tubes, zircaloy bearing pads and interelement spacers, zircaloy end caps for fuel element closure welds and zircaloy end plates which hold the fuel elements in a bundle. The five process steps in preparing the zircaloy components for the fuel element and the bundle assembly are described and the quality assurance system explained. Because CANDU reactors use natural, rather then enriched uranium the fuel fabrication is a much simpler process requiring smaller plant. CANDU fuel is fabricated in Argentina, South Korea and Romania as well as Canada. (UK)
Concerns about the tritium emissions.
Heres a really basic answer.
CANDU reactors use natural uranium as their nuclear fuel. Natural uranium is composed of about 0.7% uranium-235, and the remaining 99.3% is mostly uranium-238 which cannot directly be used in a fission process to obtain energy.[7] The uranium-238 is fertile and can absorb high speed neutrons and convert to plutonium-239 which is fissile and then undergoes fission; this process accounts for around half of the energy produced within the reactor.[8] CANDU reactors use about 25 to 30% less mined uranium than a comparable light water reactor (mostly because of the better use of neutrons in the reactor).
In CANDU reactors, fuel in the form of uranium oxide powder is packed into pellets and placed in the fuel rods. Thirty seven fuel rods are bunched together to complete a cylindrical fuel bundle, seen in Figure 2. The fuel bundle is approximately 50 cm in length and 10 cm in diameter.[9] A fuel bundle remains in the reactor between 6 and 24 months, depending on its location within the core.[2]
Its a Uranium oxide powder fuel rod.

Finally, operating a nuclear power plant requires vast amounts of water which, if properly treated, could return to the water system, but Alberta has a “highly variable” water supply, which will be affected by climate change in the future.

And the communities there grateful for a opportunity to clean up the site (jobs). Hes in the miners hall of fame, after they didnt decomission they just flooded the mine and threw some old rock in there. Employed a bunch of people during ‘cold war boom’.
Just interested learning about this Labine character. Thesee people didnt make their money from thin air, they dug it out of the ground. Well he had some issues too. Anyways site looks cleaned up. He got order of Canada. https://www.gg.ca/en/honours/recipients/146-2718

What kind of radiation is ionizing,
Basically the Sun , anything that can remove the electron and bring about a charge. Cosmic rays.
Gamma rays, X-rays and the higher ultraviolet part of the electromagnetic spectrum are ionizing radiation, whereas the lower energy ultraviolet, visible light, nearly all types of laser light, infrared, microwaves, and radio waves are non-ionizing radiation.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ionizing_radiation

What effect does ionizing radiation have on water.
Well Radiolysis.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiation_damage
Different effects per different radiations.
Alpha makes Hydrogen peroxide
Beta makes beta decay can be used in reactor.
Gamma rays; Gamma radiation induces hydrogen absorption by coppper in water. Not linking that.
You can Gamma ray waster water to break down organics.
Why is there concern about changes in matter as a result of exposure to ionizing radiation.
Well basically in laymans terms you dont want the water molecule getting destroyed while its in your body and can destroy DNA molecules.
The EPA has a good page.

Heres a perspective around the Bruce site.https://london.ctvnews.ca/mobile/saugeen-first-nation-debates-fate-of-canada-s-nuclear-waste-1.5430208
You know A commenter wrote, the government controls everything nuclear except when its time to clean up or pay for clean up costs.
So its no wonder these people dont trust the gov. look at the record. Its like a shitty friend there for all the good times, no where to be found when its time to clean up. Doesnt that describe Seamusa and the current gov well, there for the party thats it. Pure cronyism.

The no number.
Nuclear is like a scale,

1- Its the CANDU scientific & technological perspective
First its my personal perspective. CANDU is a has been. Pildfered and sat on by governments from the 60s. Where we could have been: look at China, japan, leading the way in exports.
If we would have focused on nuclear and recommendations from Chief engineers in the 70’s wed be laughing all the way to the bank now. No, now its lobbyist have left us quite a large gap.
So if we were nuclear powerhouse in the 70s our leader have squandered our opportunities. Throwing a little miniscule investment at the SMR’s another wasted chance. In the USA they have the EPA and argonnes national lab and government benefits to energy makers. Here we have buddy deals and SNC.
Bureacrats keen on nickel and diming projects to oblivion.If its not that its proliferation India bomb, and Romanian corruption. The technology perspective is cool. I mean what im supposed to be in awe with Bruce power. The shits outdated 70s tech and havent invested in anything new since the 70s.
Did I say 70s I meant 40s and 50s. It just becomes silly I mean I read the reccomendations from chief engineer, our government obviously didnt. When youre still talking about transporting the oil by rail in the 2020s. Id say look at Uganda, using logic and reason.
I mean everyone knows a pipeline is the most effective safest way so far to move your resources.Land.
https://www.cbc.ca/archives/entry/a-candu-fiasco-in-romania
https://www.nrcan.gc.ca/energy/energy-sources-distribution/uranium-nuclear-energy/nuclear-energy/international-perspective/7717

https://www.world-nuclear.org/reactor/default.aspx/CERNAVODA-2
I guess I would say on the Cernavoda 2 83 start, and 2007 commercial.
https://www.nucnet.org/news/romania-signs-declaration-of-intent-with-france-10-3-2020
So thats 1983 to 2021. Or 2007-2021 nothing.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_commercial_nuclear_reactors
China has the mega reactor list. The 2/67 CANDU they are using. Almost a whole 3%.
France and its 0% CANDU Reactors. 0% USA CANDU reactors. UK 0% CANDU.
Whats the most important thing with a nuclear reactor, that is safe and it gives power.
So I think the tech is cool it just its not that huge of an export maybe and not top of the line.
South Korea, UK have variety of styles,
South Korea with those impressive build times.
USA went with a couple models Canada went with one.
https://world-nuclear.org/information-library/nuclear-fuel-cycle/nuclear-power-reactors/nuclear-power-reactors.aspx

2- Perspective on the nuclear power
Ok I watched the Three mile island documentary, you can like see the concern in people, and the president going down there. Id like to say I am compassionate with those people and the fear. Though its really nothing comparable to the Chernobyl. No one wants to have loved ones go through those nuclear disaster experienced at TMI, Chernobyl Fukushima or Hiroshima. That being said everyt new reactor some new technology passive safety, the gas cooled. Liquid sodium cooled, high termperature gas cooled. Molten Salt reactor, Thorium. All sorts of cool new tech to lower wastes and improve safety systems. Recycling fuels.
https://www.world-nuclear.org/information-library/safety-and-security/safety-of-plants/safety-of-nuclear-power-reactors.aspx
The weapons vs the power generation, and medical agricultural benefits.
The nuclear weapons to sit at the big table
Ok, im lookingf at more perspectives of nuclear power.
Fly ash, from coal, more dangerous.
Compare what you get for X dollars living next to coal vs next to nuclear.
No news is good news rigth.

-Using Nuclear tech
Simply put even if you dont like nuclear tech its still being used around.
US Navy, and Russian Ice breakers.
Space exploration outside solar system impossible without nuclear.
Has the energy and heat required for sensitive equipment. No sun for solar panels.
Alot of that nuclear anti proliferation translates to no nuclear at all.
My opinion should be using nuclear power to phase out coal, diesel.
Mining should be done sustainably.
Not this after all the resources pilfered and land destroyed theres no money for clean up.
Profits. I understand the operation costs and building say a nuclear plant, but everyone should benefit.
Not some nickel and diming customers into oblivion. The prices should be lower to benefit all.
I think I agree with the proff Its should level out (energy usage) then finding ways to get more with less. Every country wants its own industrial evolution. Using the tech for the lower carbon, space junk.

What does uranium decay into?

The half-life of uranium-238 is 4.5 billion years. It decays into radium-226, which in turn decays into radon-222. Radon-222 becomes polonium-210, which finally decays into a stable nuclide, lead.Jul. 25, 2017

M Richardson, in 1912 in response to the Titanic disaster, suggested both airborn and underwater echo- ranging schemes, and, in 1914, RA Fessenden experimentally demonstrated echo-ranging underwater detection of an iceberg. The transducer that Langevin used in the earlier days was a mosaic of thin quartz crystals glued between two steel plates (the composite having a resonant frequency of about 150 KHz), mounted in a housing suitable for submersion. In the underwater community the word transducer means a device that has the capability of both transmitting and receiving sound. A projector is a device that transmits sound underwater. Projectors are used in active systems. In active systems, after the sound has been generated, the sound waves travel to a target and return as echoes to be detected. Projectors are usually used near their resonance frequencies where they provide the highest acoustic output.

I dont know anything about Arreola.
Montage.
Some mutual respect buty IOve never seen him figth I dont think.
Thats funny hes like one time he wanted to be like me, now I want to be like him.
“Ruiz disciplined inside the ring undicsiplined outside the ring” lol thats funny.
Could Chris win, he could very well.
Hosted Shawn Porter & Mikey Garcia.
Lol Andy Ruiz eats snickers before the fight. Snickers jokes.
Lennox Lewis ringside.
Joe Goosen trainer.
Whoa Lennox Lewis got style.
Hes got a suit jacket, liner.
With the Lennox Lewis Tyson fight card as the liner.
J.Ramos vs J.Molina Ramos is the 20 yr old. Molina the former olympian and more years pro.

Mystery song i heard I know the tune but cant pin point it, thats too bad.
Abel Roamos VS Omar Figuroa JR.
After seeing Jesus Ramos.
Omar looks ok just hasnt fought since 2019.
Figueroa Jr is a unorthodox fighter, seeing some unique moves. some good defensive moves.
He figths from a weird angle unconventional. How do you break from the pack and learn a completely new style.
Its always cool wehn theyre having a good time too.
Nothing against the other 2 figthers those Ramos family woo! Ok nephew uncle right on.
Aint nothing easier than writing about boxing. Personal stories.
Humbleness in victory, and defeat.
An exceptional rendering of ‘Star Spangled Banner.’

Joe Goossen the only trainer ive seen wear white lol.
Wow this fight is crazy. Ruiz was knocked down for a sec. Ruiz is hurt.
Chris got a good hit on Ruiz left ear, ruiz is shaky. Ruiz disbalanced. This might be an upset. Chris looks strong with some solid stance and solid shots. Ruiz back on the offense.
Andy looking better in that last round.
Barnburner.
Lol Chris is the 40 yr old nightmare. He seems more on the offense.
Joe Goossen I was learning he helped bring Ruelas brothers to world titles. Gabriel Ruelas fought a man that later dies of his brain injuries, contemplated retiring, instead continued and donated some winnings to the Jimmy Garcia family. Andy ruiz just slightly up in punches %.
Chris A shoulder got hurt. Ruiz definetly got this now. Just the small victories more consistent.
Chris A just got one round seems a like too little a score, I though it could be an upset. He quoted Dre.
That was epic nigth of boxing.
OK supposed to watch a that movie but alas here I am lol. Gonna try to compare this movie to a couple nights boxing.

___ Movie
Watching this movie to get shit done, its been on the queue forever.
Watching before boxing this weekend.
Ill just starty it from the beginning and ignore any previous posts or drafts on the matter. Then Ill watch the Canelo Billy Joe Saunders.
Billy Joe says: “im not afraid of greatness.”
Alright excited for that.
Excited for this. Long time in the making of procrastinations. then ill do the list items.
The intero is sweet its flames and people screaming sound effect.
Valves and ignitions, plasmas.
Hot gasses lol.
Taco bell ass lool.
Burning ring of fire Johnny Cash.
Found this movie on youtube huzzah.
Oh some plot. Its the first nuclear family.
I guess thats thyroid inject.
Lol those goggles, that just makes me laugh personal reasons.
That device is shaking like a ride in front of the supermarket.
Bomb shelter demo. p[retty fallout esque.
The new old footage is always cool.
It just doesnt always look so vintage.
Not like Forrest gump that was awesome.
A good old fashioned dance and a guy smoking in the background.
Atomics is like nearly what brought on that golden age, or the one theyre portraying in the film.
That shelter experience, they say boy can it take it, I dunno there was steam shooting valves bustin up like a universal studios ride.
Theres been some content on cinnemassacre about the fear and loathing and can probably mesh it with those first opening scenes.
I cant imagine the 40’s being a very fun time to be alive. To the 50’s more optimism, American dream, one arcticle suggest conformity. Young old conforming. Well thats not so much the same I was thinking whats its gonna be like post covid. 60s wave counterculture. 70s depression economics, Music for profits FM radio Albums;. 60s really the end of that post ww2. Good music in the 70s though. 80s to now. Thats a fictional 44. And just quick exploring. Increase in consumer spending 50s, conformity not really seeing that lol/sigh . 20s aftermath of ww1, post spanish flu.
Ok I remember this, nuclear family has a kid. Is this the flame baby.
Correction its the nuclear flame baby. Human torch.. 39s Frank R paul 61s reactivation
Well right away the nuclear family catches fire lol. Thats quite bizzare. What the hell now its the 90s or 80s .. Its a play.
I was just googling actual spontaneous combustion thats so strange.
hydrocarbon on fire, with no heat. I mean some things combust in presence of oxygen so.
If these are highschool kids they look older than me. At this School or whatever. Theres like anti-radiation something armbands and posters.. Some foreshadowing. Why do they combust is what I want to know. is it cause the nuclear fire baby is mad? Stop nuclear power is what it says. Well id would tent to agree if people be catching fire all over the place. Nuclear power and bombs Id say are completely different one frees humanity the other destroys. That red car scene was weird. I wouldnt even know how to descrive that car, its got a center cylinder chrome jet intake looking piece.Its like a mini hubcap in the center of the grille. Its kinda ugly in my opinion. Novelty but ugly.
Interesting its about nuclear power shows a spherical room design. Power plant going online, in the movie. Theres the intro theres the learning about this guy, who looks fairly familiar.
Trinidad beach fictional plant.
Going around turning lights on theyre really pushing this spontaneous combustion, everyone just catchin fire around the town. late 80s 90s theme. This guy hes getting flashback looking into the globe of the fire. This character mega distraught. Imagine when he learns hes causing all thee combustions lol. Just his face says it all. Wow I like thos blue building accent lights. Omg that neon pink phone lol and the layered mirrors I forgot about the layered mirrors!
That neon phone omg. Had to take a break was laughing so hard. Talk on the funny phone to the doc. The radio doctor to be clear. Ok so the birthmark growing mega pain. HBE remembers his mom. Use his flame gift to help the world. lol Human Torch. I found it its all Dapy phone dapy speakers. Some back and forth telephoning anxiety trying to get ahold of Marvin Monroe lol, caricature. Ok tech guy bursts into flames theres some gross skin effects. Black ooze, and the neon phone its just ridiculous. Face says it all hes like oh damn. Thats like a Chernobyl under the skin ouch. Lol the guy, previously baby. Hes like really selling the acting with the other one looking right at teh camera. I dunno it has its charm. The shields on clothing and bowties are just outrageous lol. Strange if you google 90s fashion you might get some late 90s fashions. Nothing like this cringeworthy sand cast pieces. Adorned with stuff ok. It has a life of its own online thats strange dont see anyone reppin the real 90s trends im seeing here lol. Ok theyre in the hospital or something. The guy has a hole in his arm, looks super flush. The doctor / doctors assistant just has his mask drooping down as per norm,nowadays lol. Dunkaroos shirt lol. Next. ew gross a unnesecary surgery scene maybe. Hes radioactive. Ok i seen some funny items. They show the dr monroe tech on the TV. Man tube box tvs, tvs, got thin and stayed that way.
U of Illinois credited with a flatscreen invention thats cool. 06-09 There was a shift in market before even. Oh ya movie, so theres a moment its like reanimator, I must inject you with this fluorescent goop . Itll all be over shortly, looks at clock 35 mins left..
Ok re-animator turns into another combustee. Reunion with previous baby and the surviving nurse I guess. Tolerance to nucleics thats just crazy lol. Dusty suitcase. Charred up merry go round. Why would he blast his parents that makes no sense. Movie time lol. The footage from his flashback.. Lew company made tthe radiation drug and been interfeering with the previous baby. Im not sure his name still. The car from the 40s still in perfect shape. This other guy has a bug painters mask lopl that was horrible scene lol. Lol its Lew. That was such a lame scene. Horrible lol. Finally knew what to search for, its the tucker 48 or a similar 2 door model. love the phone booths. More Neon, like 89. The lew corp. He blasted the phone booth. Phone booth is really clutch. Eye swollen. Wow his card is so electrified. More victims. Wow he just points and burns now. Hes definetly a monster. I guess that swollen eye thats the closest thing I can compare to these 2 boxing nights I never really meant to write about. Imagine a boxer that could make people catch fire. Back to the 90s dream pad. Everything neon and mall-like, plastic bedside phone. A pillar. That black furniture with gold trim. That looks old fashioned to me. Not like i care that much, just if I was buying new bedroom furniture that plastic gold trim looks so tacky lol. SSSSSSSMoking lol. Theres that whit black tile floor. Floor bust chandelier. Some sweet flame effects. Its like the sky in ghostbusters. lol that 90s room its just tacky but I cant look away lol. Oooh an answering machine. Believe it or not George isnt at home. Where could I be.. Believe it or not im not home! Heres Lew with the seryinge. Lew is now SMMMMMOOOOOKINg lol THats the effect its like they get blasted out after sticking a fork in the socket. Neon meltdown, stairwell scenes, just like scenes draggin on. Lew throws himself off the stairwell and lands in a heap of SHC. Ur making it worse the ex wife now in this scene really milking evcery scene caharacter lol. Lol Lew back from the stairwell facemelting off musta had some good drum and bass.
Lew disappears in a flash of light the combustion gone. Omg its over. That was a chore not gonna lie. Now its done im super glad. Nice distraction, nice little hobby thing, ive been doing homework for the past forever that was pretty fun. Movie wasnt the top tier but the action of paying attention to that mish mash of scenes and screaming oh man lol. Alright that was nice escape from dull Tuesday feeling motivated to get my tasks complete. Movie was a slow ride, wasnt the worst some of those scenes were great and horrible. Love me some retro room decor. Brad Dourif good actor. I recognize him from deadwood too wow./
_
John landis Cameo
Hes in Chucky lol, the voice of chucky.. hehe (Brad Dourif)
Lol that was a good one next, From hell it came ’57
__I did feel better after enjoying all that so a little overworked stressed out. Still i think im ready for some more. Schoolwork that is.
Is it escapeism ? I mean I feel more content when I do something. I said I would do. Fanstasy, monster movies, i like the log inventory. From Oxford is better. I used the word more loosely.
Distraction vs escapeism. Theres a James Brown Escapeism song
catharsis vs distraction, therefore escapism Too much escapeism bad.
