Spot what do you know about this virus?
Reports on our news here this morning advise us to NOT open this video, it poses a huge danger to our mobile devices.
I figure if it makes the news it's a threat.

Doctor Blake Mysteries

LarsMac's Avatar
The wife found another fine offering from Australia Television now on Netflix.
Set in the early fifties, in Ballarat, Victoria, Dr Blake assists in solving crimes that baffle the easily baffled Police Chief Police Super.
Dr Blake, apparently haunted by memories of the Japanese takeover of Singapore and the loss of his family, during the war, returns to Ballarat to take over his father's medical practice.
It is kind of a cross between Inspector Lewis, and Columbo, with a... [Read More]

Has it in any way dated, in your opinion?

I watched Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song this afternoon and felt for the first time that it was perhaps showing its age.

It may just have been me. The topicality is still obviously there - it is, after all, "about a brother getting the Man's foot out of his ass" - but some of the settings creaked, there was less punch to the dialog than I remembered.

Three years ago to the day, I missed seeing this obituary notice which has now come to my attention.

That's how many criminal drug convictions have been thrown out in Massachusetts because of tampering with evidence by ONE person.

Shattered is a book just out about the Hillary Clinton campaign and it's failure (mainly hers) to win perhaps what was thought to be the most winnable election for a democratic presidential campaign in history.

I haven't read it, however, I did read the review on the NY Times website, and it isn't pretty. There is, for some reason, what... [Read More]

Jeremy Corbin is scheduled to be crucified regardless of what he does. He can say no to the election and be ousted as Labour Leader, or he can say yes to the election and be ousted as Labour Leader. I suspect we're about to watch a Conservative landslide.

I shall, as always, be voting against the Conservative incumbent.

Wolf Hall

LarsMac's Avatar
Public Broadcasting is currently running a series from the UK called Wolf Hall, The story of Thomas Cromwell, first Earl of Essex.
It is a bit dry, and the stepson and grandkids got bored rather quickly, and left us to enjoy it in peace.
I've read a bit on the period, and watched a series that focused on Henry VIII and his split with the Vatican, but now to see the events from the perspective of others is enjoyable.
I have enjoyed Damien Lewis in a number of roles. He... [Read More]

I found a clip on YouTube of the opening scene from Amadeus at the National in 1979.

It finishes just seconds before one of the most theatrical moments I can recall. Paul Scofield as Salieri turned anticlockwise through a three-quarter circle, with his back for a second to the audience. He started the move as he is at the end of the clip, old and angry... [Read More]
