Spaced

I don't know what the hell this is, but it has a ton of funny moments. Found it on TubiTV and it really has some bizarre, surreal moments. Crazy stuff!

About the show

After a week without TV (just me and my collection of old records) I watched my first movie tonight in my new old house. All alone in 1,600 sq. ft., I watched "Up In The Air" off of Vudu because my best buddy at work, Mike Garcia (absolutely one of the most generous guys I know) made me take a TV from his pad. He's ex-Navy and one of the most loyal friends I've ever had.

I couldn't help but think of life and love, good friends, and people like me who relish circling the globe. What a mellow, cool flick!

Out hiking today. Yes, it's still me under that luscious, thick, glorious beard, lol. The weather was spectacular, the breeze cool and inviting, and I had the Hunter Creek Trail pretty much all to myself. It was a good, good day for hiking and exploring...

So I'm visiting a local wine bar, and I see this. Wowza! Cans of Unicorn Meat and Dragon Meat. Wait. What?! Ha, you have to love these!

Death for dinner. The most dangerously delicious meat on Earth. Pre-cooked for instant victory feasting. Red dragon meat is the tastiest and most tender.

Fans of Radiant Farms' Unicorn Meat are probably looking at this product and thinking, "Wait a minute, ThinkGeek! Isn't Radiant Farms in Ireland and don't the nuns believe in nonviolence and wait until the unicorns die of natural causes before processing them?" To that, we say two things: 1) You are a little obsessed with us. and 2) You are right..

But you're also wrong. You see, Unicorns and Dragons require vastly different resources for their care. Also, if they lived next to each other, the Dragons would just eat the unicorns anyways, and there'd be none left for people to eat. FURTHERMORE, the nuns at Radiant Farms lead a tortured life. Think about it: they start out all-loving and kind and raising Unicorns and letting them die of old age. But year after year of watching such beauty die weighs on their souls. They become evil and cruel and despondent and angry and bitter. It's then that they're relocated to the Dragon Rendering plants of Scotland and . . . well, you know the rest.

Product Specifications

One can of delicious, slightly charred dragon meat

From the Sisters of Radiant Farms, Scotland branch. lOne can contains 100% of your daily value of havoc, terror, inferno, destruction, magic, and rage. Also contains trace amounts of poetry and ballet.

Note:  Dragon meat is precooked for instant victory feasts
Dimensions: 4" diameter
Warning: This is not an actual food item and is non-edible. There's a stuffed dragon head inside the can. (SPOILERS!)

UNICORN MEAT

No foolin' - Unicorn meat is real! 5.5 oz. of delicious unicorn meat, canned for your convenience. Imported from a small independent cannery in County Meath, Ireland. Okay, for real: you can't eat this. It's a dismembered stuffed unicorn in a can.

Excellent source of sparkles!

Unicorns, as we all know, frolic all over the world, pooping rainbows and marshmallows wherever they go. What you don't know is that when unicorns reach the end of their lifespan, they are drawn to County Meath, Ireland. The Sisters at Radiant Farms have dedicated their lives to nursing these elegant creatures through their final days. Taking a cue from the Kobe beef industry, they massage each unicorn's coat with Guinness daily and fatten them on a diet comprised entirely of candy corn. As the unicorn ages, its meat becomes fatty and marbled and the living bone in the horn loses density in a process much like osteoporosis. The horn's outer layer of keratin begins to develop a flavor very similar to candied almonds. Blending the crushed unicorn horn into the meat adds delightful, crispy flavor notes in each bite. We are confident you will find a world of bewilderment in every mouthful of scrumptious unicorn meat.

Unfortunately, due to restrictions on the importation of mythical processed meatstuff, we are unable to bring you Canned Unicorn Meat in the way the Sisters of Radiant Farms intended. When you open your can, you will find one tiny unicorn which has been appropriately sliced into its main cuts of meat. Simply use your Growth Ray to re-embiggen the unicorn before skinning it and processing its flesh. Or if you're lazy, just bring it to your local Mad Scientist-Butcher. He'll know what to do.

LION

My brother turned me on to this film, and I'm watching it tonight, as it's my night to stay up all night before my next graveyard shift. It's beautifully filmed, lyrical, full of magic and haunting images, and a film that will stay with you for a while. Newcomer Sunny Pawar is nothing less than astonishing and you will not be able to understand how great is acting is until you reflect on this film later.

Lion is a 2016 biographical film directed by Garth Davis (in his feature debut) and written by Luke Davies, based on the non-fiction book A Long Way Home by Saroo Brierley with Larry Buttrose. The film stars Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, David Wenham and Nicole Kidman.

The film, which had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on 10 September 2016, was given a limited release in the United States on 25 November 2016, by the Weinstein Company before opening generally on 6 January 2017. It was released in Australia on 19 January 2017 and in the United Kingdom on 20 January 2017.

Lion received six Oscar nominations at the 89th Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Patel), Best Supporting Actress (Kidman) and Best Adapted Screenplay. It won two BAFTA Awards for Best Supporting Actor (Patel) and Best Adapted Screenplay.

Plot

In 1986, Saroo, a five-year-old boy lives with his elder brother Guddu, his mother and his younger sister in Khandwa, India. Guddu and Saroo steal coal from freight trains to trade for milk and food. One day, Saroo follows his brother to a job and they arrive at a nearby train station, where Saroo decides to stay back and take a nap. Guddu tries to wake him up, but Saroo is too tired. When Guddu does not return, Saroo searches for him and boards a train presuming Guddu is aboard. He falls asleep again in one of the compartments, and wakes up to find the train in motion. After several days, it arrives in faraway Calcutta, where he does not understand the local Bengali language. He stands at a ticket counter and tries to obtain a ticket home, but the attendant does not recognise the name of his village, which Saroo says is "Ginestlay".He spends the night in the station with some streetchildren, but is then woken up and forced to run when a group of men try to kidnap them.

Saroo continues to wander around the city before coming across Noor, a seemingly friendly woman who brings him back to her apartment. She tells Saroo that a man, Rama, will help him find his way home. Saroo runs away, sensing that Noor and Rama may have sinister intentions, and escapes Noor when she chases after him. After two months of living near the Howrah Bridge, Saroo is taken to the police by a young man. Unable to trace his family, they put him in an orphanage. Three months later, Saroo is introduced to Mrs. Sood, who tells him she has placed an advertisement about him in several local newspapers, but no one has responded. She then tells him that an Australian couple is interested in adopting him. She begins to teach Saroo English and he moves to Hobart, Tasmania in 1987, under the care of Sue and John Brierley, where he slowly starts to settle in. A year later, they adopt another boy, Mantosh, who has trouble adjusting to his new home and suffers from rage and self-harm.

Twenty years later, Saroo, now a young man, moves to Melbourne to study hotel management. He starts a relationship with Lucy, an American student. During a meal with some Indian friends at their home, he comes across jalebi, a delicacy he remembers from his childhood. He confides that he is adopted, and his friends suggest he use Google Earth to search for his hometown in India. Saroo begins his search, but over time disconnects from Lucy, overwhelmed by the thought of emotions his family must have gone through when he was missing.

Saroo visits Sue, whose health is deteriorating, and learns that she is not infertile, but had chosen to help others in need through adoption, believing that there were already too many people on Earth. Saroo spends a long time searching fruitlessly for his hometown. One evening, while scanning Google Earth, he notices the rock formations where his mother worked, and then finds the area where he lived: the Ganesh Talai neighborhood of the Khandwa district. He finally tells his adoptive mother about his search, and she fully supports his efforts.

Saroo returns to his hometown, where he has an emotional reunion with his biological mother and sister, but learns that Guddu is dead. Guddu was killed by a train the same night that they went to the station as children. Saroo's mother never gave up hope and believed that one day her missing son would return, and never moved away from the village. The film ends with captions about the real Saroo's return to India in February 2012. Photos of the real Australian family are shown, as well as a video of Saroo and Sue meeting his biological mother in India, who deeply appreciates Sue's care for her son. Saroo later learned that he had been mispronouncing his own name, which was actually Sheru, a diminutive for sher, the Hindi word for "lion".

I'm at Whispering Vine enjoying a really nice glass of Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is a 2015 from Kith & Kin (Round Pond Estate) in Napa Valley, and it was recommended by Jessica here. Its got a nice dark berry flavor and and a rich boldness.

It's a relaxed, comfortable place, but sadly I'm alone. I'm sitting out on the outdoor patio where it's hot as hell, but since I'm smaller now, the air conditioning inside is so chilly! Great place. I recommend it!

I don't bother much lately with the news. I'd prefer to watch a binge session of classic Benny Hill episodes right now. He keeps me laughing, the 'ol bugger!
