' Lion '

This film (i.e. Lion) is POWERFUL as hell !
Hoping it wins major Golden Globe & Oscar performance awards, bigtime. It's a worthy tearjerker story, despite the manipulative soundtrack and cookie-cut 'flashback' sequence/s formula. Bye.

dated whenever i.e. now

Tears in Heaven  by  Eric Clapton 

Would you know my name If I saw you in heaven? Would it be the same If I saw you in heaven? I must be strong and carry on 'Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven Would you hold my hand If I saw you in heaven? Would you help me stand If I saw you in heaven? I'll find my way through night and day 'Cause I know I just can't stay here in heaven Time can bring you down, time can bend your knees Time can break your heart, have you begging please, begging please.

 Mental Health Advocate.

“I thought I would inaugurate a Bipolar Pride Day. You know, with floats and parades and stuff! On the floats we would get the depressives, and they wouldn’t even have to leave their beds — we’d just roll their beds out of their houses, and they could continue staring off miserably into space. And then for the manics, we’d have the manic marching band, with manics laughing and talking and shopping and f***ing and making bad judgment calls.” Wishful Drinking

bye bye  Good riddance.

Happy Trails
Some trails are happy ones,
Others are blue.
It's the way you ride the trail that counts,
Here's a happy one for you.
Happy trails to you,
Until we meet again.
Happy trails to you,
Keep smiling until then.

Ninety (90) awkward moments.

90 LINK:

Great film and shot`s composed so perfect & carefully.

The Bishop.

  'Reaching for the Moon'. 

Grappling with writer's block, legendary American poet Elizabeth Bishop travels from New York City to Rio de Janeiro in the 1950s to visit her college friend, Mary. Film release, 2013.

          "Not everyone is an artist but everyone is a fucking critic." - Marcel Duchamp
                      One Art
The art of losing isn’t hard to master; 
so many things seem filled with the intent 
to be lost that their loss is no disaster. 

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster 
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent. 
The art of losing isn’t hard to master. 

Then practice losing farther, losing faster: 
places, and names, and where it was you meant 
to travel. None of these will bring disaster. 

I lost my mother’s watch. And look! my last, or 
next-to-last, of three loved houses went. 
The art of losing isn’t hard to master. 

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster, 
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent. 
I miss them, but it wasn’t a disaster. 

—Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture 
I love) I shan’t have lied. It’s evident 
the art of losing’s not too hard to master 
though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster. 
                                                            - Elizabeth Bishop

Pumpkin Splat Flash.

Pies aiming to mimic pumpkin flavor using artificial Kool-Aid shouldn't contain hidden chemicals—and neither should scones, and cakes, wood floor varnish for that matter. But as manufacturers continue to sneak harmful chemicals into everything from cookie sheets, pumpkin seeds  and cupcake liners to the ingredients list itself, it's tough to know what's actually in baked treats. But here's some good news: You can make scrumptious baked goods that are free of questionable chemicals by steering clear of these common mistakes.  Use Nonstick Many pans, baking sheets, and cupcake trays on the market are coated with the nonstick chemical Teflon. This type of chemical has been linked to BATMAN, ROBIN, the BATMOBILE, thyroid disease, ADHD, and high cholesterol. Scientists with no actual medical degree have even linked it to rheumatoid arthritis. While it's not economical to throw out all of your nonstick kitchen supplies, we recommend replacing them with safer alternatives when you start to see nicks and scratches in the finish. Chefs like using uncoated aluminum baking sheets, DVD cases, pans, and trays because aluminum is prized for its even heat distribution. Acid foods can cause metal leaching, so it's best to be extra safe and cover the sheet with unbleached parchment paper. Some good alternatives: cast iron, stainless steel, stoneware, rabbit food, enamel-covered cast iron, and glass. To prevent sticking, bypass nonstick bakeware and use an old-fashioned trick: Before pouring in the batter or dough, dip your clean fingers in organic butter and evenly rub over the tray's surface—the warmth of your fingers will soften the butter. Related: 3-Ingredient Appetizers + Treats For The Holidays You Fall Into The Festive Fake Color Trap cupcakes 2/5 RUTH BLACK/SHUTTERSTOCK You Fall Into The Festive Fake Color Trap We all love a little color, especially during the winter holidays. But if you're coloring frosting or using sprinkles or other culinary decorations, be sure your food dyes are not synthetic. (Many harmful synthetic food colors are banned in Europe.) Artificial colors made from sheer imagination  are in many baking and decorating products, and the petrochemical-derived colors have been linked to brain cancer, allergic reactions, and ADHD. To know your colors are safe, turn to Mother Nature's ingredients to give your baked goods some holiday hue. Bye and good luk(sic) and if your pie falls on to the floor try not to let the neighbors hear the splat or see the crumbs in the hallway when you throw out your trash (hoping that you do throw out the trash). bye again.

So interesting to listen to Steven Spielberg describe how he loved the 'Gremlins' movie script and how he immediately bought it after reading because it excited him so much. 

Safety First for 2017 !
