Movie Review: The Outlaw (1943)

A movie so bad it’s fun to watch[1] ___ 4/10

The OutlawPrologue: “The Outlaw” is a story of the untamed West. Frontier days when the reckless fire of guns and passions blazed an era of death, destruction and lawlessness. Days when the fiery desert sun beat down avengingly (sic) on the many who dared defy justice and outrage decency.


Yeah, right. Avengingly?! Outrage decency?! Who wrote this stuff?

This movie outrages decency!

Guest Column: Smoking Gun at CDC

Are the Ebola attacks a distraction to let CDC off the hook for murder?

Pyramid_Control_LinesPlease view this original guest column from Jon Rappoport regarding the breaking story that nobody in the mainstream media (MSM) broke, which was that the US Center for Disease Creation and Infection (CDC) fraudulently reported that the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine showed no link to autism. In fact vaccine tests revealed a 300%+ likelihood of autism and brain damage in black boys; these test results were simply removed from the final 2004 paper by CDC scientists… by the mechanism of eliminating the black boy data set altogether.  Sweet. Rappoport gives names and faces to the Mengelian medicine practiced, with apparent impunity, at the highest levels of government and industry. Continue reading

Brian’s Column: Liberty or Death?

While working on my Good Neighbor Libertarian presentation …

Henry… for the Liberty in Action seminar put on by the Libertarian Party of Michigan this coming Saturday, I came upon the need for that key phrase at the end of Patrick Henry’s rousing speech on the floor of the Second Virginia Convention, in Richmond, Virginia, on a bright spring day on the eve of Revolution:

“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?”

Is it? And I was thinking of it in connection with how many, if not most, Libertarians and citizens seem to entertain the comforting delusion that we haven’t crossed the line into full-spectrum federal tyranny (with state and local government abdication). Well, we have, and it’s a useful stirring of the blood to read Mr. Henry’s words—substituting ‘globalists’ or ‘US predatory government’ or ‘Pod Lizards’ for the ‘British imperial forces.’

Book Review: Nightmare in Pink (1964)

By John D. MacDonald 1964, Fawcett Publications , 143 pages

MacDonaldSome of my friends tell me it’s time to lighten up again.  (Well, they tell me to lighten up all the time.)  So, for the book review, I’ve decided to continue to explore more of the subtleties and insights of Travis McGee in this his second incarnation, Nightmare in Pink, by literary GrandMaster MacDonald.

What amazes me for all the books I’ve read—including a McGee novel by MacDonald perhaps a decade ago—that I’ve only just now “discovered” John D’s immense talent.  Seriously.  In his first of the Travis McGee series, The Deep Blue Good-By, I saw his penchant for biting social commentary.

Movie Review: Don Jon (2013)

Modern morality comedy in candid setting ___  8.5/10

DonJonDon Jon is another Netflix pic that panned out nicely.

[Who goes out to the movies anymore? Last time yours truly took in the silver screen up close and personal was to watch Atlas Shrugged III. To make it an official night at the cineplex I ordered a MEDIUM cola and MEDIUM popcorn... then walked away, I think it was, $12 poorer! Yikes! They need to surround the concession stands with yellow tape as a crime scene.]

But back to the movie at hand. The IMDb blurb says, “A New Jersey guy dedicated to his family, friends, and church, develops unrealistic expectations from watching porn and works to find happiness and intimacy with his potential true love.” So I expected it to be on the frank, perhaps even raw, side, but I’ve always liked Gordon-Levitt’s movies where he’s an actor—since Brick (2005), The Lookout (2007), and especially (500) Days of Summer (2009)—and this one he also writes and directs. So I put my offensiveness meter on standby and gave Don Jon a fair shake, so to speak.:) Not the kind of movie to watch with one’s parents… or one’s kids. Continue reading

Brian’s Column: ‘Life and Times’ Prospecting

Some Thoughts and a Pitch from the Brave New World of People’s Publishing

PressSay what you will about the Amazon dynasty, its Createspace subsidiary has made possible an entire new set of careers for writers and editors qua publishers. What I mean by that is if you want to write a book and you know how to use a computer, you can put a real one up on the Web and available as printed material complete with ISBN and all the bells and whistles that make it available to all the libraries of the world. It’s like in the movie, The Jerk, when the Steve Martin character finally sees his name in the telephone directory! Continue reading
