A Moment of Silence

You'll never hear his name mentioned in the White House Rose Garden or in the Oval Office where President Obama praises the domestic terror group, #blacklivesmatter. But please take a pause for the cause, from your busy lives to have MSG Joshua Wheeler in your thoughts.

Slow News Saturday

I'm going to use my newly acquired socket wrench to pull the rear wheel from my Ducati Diavel and if all goes according to plan, haul it off and get a new tire on it. (nail in the tire) You can't repair a tire on a high performance motorcycle such that you will be sure that it won't leak because of the flex in the tire and the nature of taking corners with enthusiasm.

Thus, the best I can blog on is some movies coming up in the next 30 days that I plan to see. I like Westerns and there are two coming out that have promise...maybe. Then there is James Bond.

Bone Tomahawk
After a man's wife is kidnapped, four men (Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, Richard Jenkins) go to save her and find that many horrors await them. It's referred to as a "Western horror film", so stand by for it.

In 1823, Hugh Glass, a fur trapper, is mauled by a bear while hunting in what will become the Dakota Territory. His companions rob him, murder his young son, and leave him to die, but he survives and sets out on a 200 mile trek to get revenge on the men who betrayed him and find the man who killed his son.

A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
