iPhone homescreen 2017-08-08

tcr! · Aug 8, 2017 at 12:45 pm

In another life my friends and I used to share screenshots of our computer desktops. I suspicion most people are on their phones more these days so here’s my phone home screen.

Here are links if you don’t know how to take a screenshot: iPhone and Android.

Facebook and their nudity, their violence

Facebook and their nudity, their violence

Perusing the USPS on Facebook at 6:47 in the AM as I do, I accidentally tapped the down gray chevron. A little box appeared as they do, with a “What’s happening in this post?” heading and also “Nudity or Sex Acts” and “Violence” buttons.

For a second I wasn’t sure if I was on some underground, off-color site for the renegade Bartertown / Thunderdome types. Granted I’d only had one swill of coffee but c’mon.

Junkie XL and his film soundtracks

tcr! · Aug 8, 2017 at 7:58 am

I heard on NPR yesterday or the day before that the guy that did the Mad Max: Fury Road soundtrack also co-composed the Batman v Superman soundtrack. You remember that little guitar fill for Wonder Woman theme? Yep. That’s the one. That hooked me.

Why is this NPR news at this hour? Because he did the score for The Dark Tower, the movie that should’ve been all the rage. But that’s a different story.

After digging more into Antonius Tom Holkenborg’s page on Wikipedia I see that he did the soundtrack for Deadpool, too. He’s also going to helm the music for the upcoming Tomb Raider film.

Shut up. I don’t have a man-crush. 😉 I have a deep love of music and soundscapes.

Anyways, I don’t wanna say that movie music can make or break a show but it comes pretty damn close. Without Doof Warrior I wouldn’t have loved Fury Road as much as I did.

i’m gonna comment, but it needs to be compelling, so i’ll be back.
i don’t know how many times i saw Fury Road. The only thing that comes close is Birdman. Birdman is my current all time fave. It’s magic.
Fury Road is close.
and what these movies do for me is good and bad. they spoil me for a lot of what comes next. The Grand Budapest Hotel is another. So was Moonrise Kingdom. 4 of my all time faves came out approx 2 years from each other.
and yes, the music is essential. i’m more than a fan. When I saw Graham Sexton playing that guitar in Fury Road, I knew I’d witnessed history. It’s almost wrong he was called the Doof Warrior. My vernacular says doof is short for Doofus, a dork. The character is not.

I think I have the soundtrack to The Grand Budapest laying around somewhere.

I should get Birdman’s as I was just reading it was composed by a jazz drummer.

Climate Science Special Report at odd’s with Trump administration’s views

White House reviewing new report that finds strong link between climate change, human activity

White House reviewing new report that finds strong link between climate change, human activity

A climate report based on work conducted by scientists in 13 federal agencies is under active review at the White House, and its conclusions about the far-reaching damage already occurring from global warming are at odds with the Trump administration’s views.

The report, known as the Climate Science Special Report, finds it is “extremely likely” that more than half of the rise in temperatures over the past four decades has been caused by human activity — in contrast to Trump Cabinet members’ views that the magnitude of that contribution is uncertain.

Good. Views are subjective, facts are the opposite.

Maggie and I found a hardcore religious freak on my shortwave radio.

About 30 seconds in she says, “this sounds like the beginnings to a horror movie.”

Stink by John Lurie

Peeps, I forgot just how good the Get Shorty soundtrack is.

Movie’s good, too, and you won’t go wrong reading anything by Elmore Leonard.

I don’t like touching the urinal flush handles so 90% of the time I just kung-fu kick them.

ENTER APT. #

Enter Apartment Number 1 Enter Apartment Number 2

We walk up to an apartment community on the Fox River in St. Charles. The door’s unlocked and we go inside to a small entry way. There’s a telephone system labeled, “ENTRY ACCESS SYSTEM” to our left.

The shiny metal has been throughly scratched. The keyhole, too. I don’t know what could’ve done this kind of damage as the phone receiver is only plastic. Certainly it couldn’t mar the metal plate. I pick up the receiver and place it to my ear. No dial tone.

Ten seconds tick by…

I wish there was more to the story but there’s not.

I couldn’t bring myself to call any of the apartments listed in the directory. I just stood there for a minute with the phone receiver up to my ear. Like an asshole.

See, not all of my stories are good.

How weird would it be to have an entry phone by my front door for visitors?
