Is it just me, or is basically every single country on this planet ‘protesting’ their government? The BBC feels like some WWF 'action news' channel every morning. Perhaps protest is the new flu? If so, someone needs to blow their nose already. It’s getting old, routine and hard to really see what’s going on in the world besides Molotov cocktails. No wonder everyone’s getting Netflix and Disney+. Yawn. bye. #aworldspoiledrotten

The deep state is now on prime-time tv. Petty politician bickering decorated with the shallow character of some mind-numbing Jerry Springer show on steroids. All that this impeachment hearing nonsense is doing is simply educating the entire world- on an internationally scaled broadcast - of just how terrible our two reigning political parties are at this very moment, and that the ‘United’ states of America are not as ‘united’ as they should be literally 3 days after Veterans Day! I’m certain that all of our great enemies are laughing the hardest at us right now rather than respecting us, as they should be. Embarrassing how petty people with power and enormous egos can be. Shameful. And pathetic, most of all. Pathetic. Like the Romans were, before they fell.

I gotta say that I had never seen Slayer live before, and so much of my drumming and musician life had Slayer decorated all over it (Lamb Of God ended up even touring with Slayer), but damn damn damn if this show wasn't really something else. Unforgettable. The show was at Madison Square Garden- SOLD OUT, and a stage-fire-blazing pyrotechnic hellfire that was not only enormous in scale and crazy lighting decor, but just seeing these older guys so happy just being up their playing their music and so clearly passionate about playing their music- something rare these days with bands this huge in success as most get lazy and obviously just do it for the paycheck. Their final goodbye was pretty sad, as they simply walked around the stage for about 10 minutes -drifting from side to side -saying goodbye to everyone before walking off into a backstage abyss. Also, was strange to see singer Tom Araya unable now to bang his head to his music, as after doing this for so many years ended up permanently ruining his neck vertebrae and having to have steel rods surgically placed into his neck. This show was not just good, it was seriously Epic - and I didn't expect it to be at all.
Slayer are truly are now a part of music history as they now depart from performing ever again. I expect to see their t-shirts being sold at Forever 21, Target and Walmart till the day I drop dead. They did it, after so much hard work for years, and should be proud. Retire on brothers. bye.

Don't Push Pause is a spectacular new podcast that really digs deep into film analysis, theory and fun tidbits of classic works of American cinema. The two podcasters who run this operation really know their material and work well as a duo of cinephile enthusiasts. Don't Push Pause makes me fall right back in love with movies all over again. The podcast covering DELIVERANCE made me miss my personal meeting with actor Burt Reynolds (rip) in NYC a few months before he died, and damn if I knew that Ronny Cox was double-jointed in real life (hence the broken arm scene), and that the sheriff at the end of the movie was actually the novelist and screenwriter of DELIVERANCE, James Dickey! I must say that this podcast is one of the best ones around regarding film studies, and a reminder that there is really no need for anyone to enroll into film school anymore now that the wonderful world of podcasts and youtube technology has taken over all of nature's streams.
