Suck it up America!
Show some pride!
It's INDEPENDENCE DAY Weekend!




***********

That's right! Suck it up America! Show some pride!
It's INDEPENDENCE DAY Weekend!

Wave the flag a little! And be happy you live in a country where you're allowed to disagree with others and speak your mind. 
You even have the right to be a moron, and not be jailed for it.

And also remember, everyone was someone's slave or oppressed native somewhere, if you go back in time far enough. It's the 'human' way.

"Hey victim, should I black your eyes again?
Hey victim, You were the one who put the stick in my hand... I wasn't born with enough middle fingers...
I don't need to choose a side...
I better, better, better, better not say this...
History is written by the winner...
Everybody's someone else's nigger, I know you are so am I."

––Marilyn Manson

I am so all-American, I'll sell you suicide
I am totalitarian, I've got abortions in my eyes
I hate the hater, I'd rape the raper
I am the animal who will not be himself
fuck it

Hey victim, should I black your eyes again?
Hey victim,
You were the one who put the stick in my hand
I am the ism, my hate's a prism
let's just kill everyone and let your god sort them out
fuck it

Everybody's someone else's nigger, I know you are so am I
I wasn't born with enough middle fingers
I don't need to choose a side
I better, better, better, better not say this
better, better, better, better not tell
I hate the hater, I'd rape the raper
I am the idiot who will not be himself
fuck it

America cannot see anything
History is written by the winner
Fuck it

SMILEYS' GRAVE
(Garland TX)

Finally had a nostalgic visit to the nearby MILLS CEMETERY where the infamous and very real SMILEY family are buried. This is the inspiration for my short story SMILEYS' GRAVE and also the much expanded screenplay based on the story, titled COLOR OF FLAME. Enjoy some pics of THE SMILEYS & ME. :) ps: In the last picture––NOT my shoe. But it was there in the cemetery, just across the little road from the Smileys grave. Hmmmm...



Also enjoy this video I put together
many moons ago showing MILLS CEMETERY:








Watched DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES last night, in effort to gear up for the WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES (July 14, 2017).

I have seen DAWN several times, but not for a long time. But wow! What an amazing film––so well written, acted, and executed with unparalleled CG animation. And what a powerful and bleak message––so relevant today in this vicious, absurd world. All it takes is a few bad apples to drive a wedge between everyone––the media and the obstructionist and the lying sellers of impossible Utopias (the true haters). And just like CAESAR says in the final lines of the film...

CAESAR
"War has... already begun. Ape started war. And human... Human will not forgive. You must go... before fighting begins. I am sorry... my friend."

MALCOLM
"I thought we had a chance."

CAESAR
"I did too."

So simple, but it doesn't get much darker than that.

Very glad writer/director MATT REEVES is helming the new one as he did DAWN. A truly gifted storyteller through cinema.

Check out DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES on Blu-ray before WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES (July 14, 2017) :

DOLBY CINEMA is the BEST!

Saw WONDER WOMAN today and it was actually very good. Really enjoyed it in the amazing AMC DOLBY CINEMA. If you can find a Dolby Cinema near you, see a movie there––you won't regret the experience. In fact, see the beautiful GAL GADOT as WONDER WOMAN while it's showing. Truly amazing picture and audio. :D

HAM ORCHARDS!

On Saturday afternoon, the parents and I had a great time sharing lunch at HAM ORCHARDS, out in Terrell, TX. 

The food was delicious!––I made a BBQ Sausage Sandwich With Red Pepper Fangs. lol The FARM MARKET STORE was excellent and we had Peach and Strawberry Soft Serve. We also picked up some great foods and some amazingly decadent fudge. Enjoy the pics!
