Author Archive for Gonzo di Dottore

Gonzo di Dottore [Ed.: He's not a real doctor. Or Italian.] is a noted author, poet, photographer and bon vivant. Or was that savant? It's hard to tell sometimes. One of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high-powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die

Merica:  Referring to a Saturday NFL broadcast as Saturday night football simply isn’t good enough. It’s “Thursday Night Football: Saturday Edition.” (Woooo!!! Branding!!!) This is why nobody likes the suits up in marketing. Must I now wear my “Casual Friday khakis: the Saturday Morning version” blue jeans to “First Saturday Cars and Coffee: the one week later and with Red Bull instead edition” show?

Aside

You know why everybody piles on to create “doorbusters” and crazy sales?

So everyone can be Walmart and engage in predatory pricing.

They can’t bitch if we’re all doing it.

Who cares if they kill main street businesses in the process.  The TVs are $20!

Skyfall (2012)

In 4 words: Khan Hannibal Joker 2

Skyfall is the third Daniel Craig Bond movie. (And only the second if one ignores Quantum of Stupid (2009).like one should do with the two Dalton movies.)

Bad guy plots revenge.  Bad guy has unnatural luck/genius pre-planning and improvisation. Just when you think you’ve caught him for reals, you’ve fallen right into his trap for you. Cops/redshirts are going to die. Sometimes, important people.

I loved this movie, just like the 10 previous times i saw it.

(Definitely better when sober)
