RE: Rosemant... Has anyone carried out the ultimate negative possibility? 30 years from now, give or take, the copper runs out. (It's been known to happen) And the American branch of the Canadian company running things throws in the towel, declaring 'bankruptcy'.
They have made this huge hole in our Dessert. They have left an enormous pile of tailings. Overall, a hazerdous situation. (Hole fills with water, kids fall in, kids climb the tailings piles and fall, ETC.) We ask them to take care of it. Their reply? 'Oh, WE'RE BANKRUPT! We can't fix that. Like to help you, but... Sorry'. Tough, eh?
I have a much later copy of the 'White Album' on white vinal. The music is good, no matter which particular set of the records you have!
I grew up with 'The Lone Ranger' on radio. I saw the TV series. The radio series was actually believable to the young mind,and is enjoyable today. The writing was fine, especially considering they did 3 half hour show a week. TV was a bit condecending, but acceptable. At least the main characters (The Ranger and Tonto) were portrayed consistently to the radio series, which was still on the air when the TV began.
This movie, however, is a travesty. Tonto was a respectable and respected man. He clung to his heiratage, but did it respectfully. The Ranger was a 100% believable charater, who respected everyone until they showed him they were not worthy of his respect. The movie seems to have been written by and for the Special Effects people, and needed no real scripting, except to tie the S.E. together. George Trendal (the creator of The Lone Ranger) would turn over in his grave. Hopefully this thing will be soon relegated to late night TV filler status, from there to be forgotten. 225 MILLION? Think of all the kids you could feed with that!
As a child, I enjoyed Disney characters, cartoons, magazine, ETC. I also enjoyed the movies.
However, that was a long time ago. I fear that Walt would turn over in his grave if he learned of the power plays his Company pulls. Protecting their property is OK, but trying to gain ownershiop of words and phrases in general use is too much. If you or I or a kid puts "Day Of The Dead" on a T shirt not approved by them, they (Disney) want to hit them (people) with a big fine. No good will here, yet good will is what built Disney from 'Steamboat Willy" to what they are today.
Silliest damn thing I've seen since Obamacare. Someone with the 'wrong' plumbing will soon find it less convienient to use the wrong room. Seriously... Is THIS a problem? Before they spend 'money' on new signage and the like for this, they need to FIX THE ROADS!
Those young punks need to be taught a lesson. That it is NOT necessary to rough up a freshman simply because he is a freshman. Or for any other reason, even if your old man thinks it's OK. That people today don't worry about "squeeling" on low-lifes. I wish it were actively so when I went to school. Unfortunately for me, it was not. Teachers, coaches, ETC. insisted that it was not their job to care for the kids, only to TEACH them.
I hope this young man is able to overcome the shame that was purpetrated upon him.
Some of the worlds' great Cheffs are MEN. Not 'gay panzies', but real men. There is nothing wrong with a 'Boy Friendly' EZ Bake Oven. I congratulate the little girl who has sensitivity enough to persue something like this.
