TV Time

If you aren’t watching LEGION on FX, you must get to Hulu or the FX app and catch up right away – hey, this weekend is perfect – because this show is absolutely AMAZING.

Also coming up on Hulu: The Handmaid’s Tale. And the new season of Westworld is coming to HBO.

Want to watch a fucked-up documentary? Give HAUNTERS on Netflix a viewing. Starts out just as a behind the scenes look at people who run haunted houses, this film gets dark, FAST.

Another Netflix gem is American Vandal, which is just hilarious.  Oh, Hello on Broadway is great, too, if you’ve ever been given Too Much Tuna.

And Amazon’s The Amazing Mrs. Maisel is a fantastic series about a woman trying to be a stand-up comic in the 60’s. Authentic, funny, the lead actress is charming and gorgeous, and Alex Borstein is comedy gold in this.

Obviously, Black Mirror is a recommendation. And holy damn, is Gotham getting intense or what?

Comedian Christina P. has a Netflix special called Mother Inferior that kills. Try it out. (Machines within…) Her husband Tom Segura also has a new special: Disgraceful – and it’s hysterical. Tony Hinchcliffe and Ari Shaffir are also really good fucking specials. Laugh your ass off, then give them a nice ol’ thumbs up.

There is a cornucopia of good standup on Netflix.. These are just all I can think of at the moment.

Oh – if you have not yet seen Twin Peaks: The Return, you must remedy this immediately.

“I’m Like The Blue Rose” – Twin Peaks The Return

Don’t read this if you haven’t watched Twin Peaks: The Return up to Part 14.

I have a few thoughts and they are not complete, and not in any particular order at all. I haven’t tarted them in up either. It’s just bare bones speculation and wondering.

First off, I feel like the Southern Drawl Phillip Jeffries is actually Phillip’s doppelganger – I think this because of the way his eyes light up when Gordon Cole announces him as Special Agent Phillip Jeffries. He looks like he’s surprised and pleased they think he’s Phillip. And then of course he immediately says, “Who do you think that is there?”, indicating Dale Cooper. Assuming that Coop is actually Mr. C, because he himself is a copy?

Is Audrey in a coma? If she is, she’s either psychic, or she’s got people talking around her. Then there’s The Drunk in The Jail Cell Who Is Probably Billy. What the hell is wrong with him? Sparkle? Or maybe a Woodsman? He was unbelievably creepy.

I think that Freddie Green Glove is going to need that piledriver for Mr. C somehow, and that is the destiny to which the Fireman referred. On account of Mr. C’s ability to punch a guy’s head completely in. Level playing field.

Speaking of Audrey: Her little girl down the lane reference from Part 13 is the second allusion to Martin Sheen’s career in the 70’s, the first being the name of the actress playing Tammy (Chrysta Bell). Just odd, that’s all.  I am probably the only person to notice this or think anything of it. It means nothing yet some part of my brain thinks it’s uncanny and neat.

Do you really want to fuck with this?

Is the Sarah Palmer who removed her face and took a chunk out of the obnoxious barfly the same Sarah Palmer that said, “It’s a BAD STORY, isn’t it, Hawk?” What was making noise in the kitchen during that front door conversation? If it IS Sarah and she’s got some entity on board, perhaps that explains why she was freaking out over the turkey jerky and asking when it was stocked. Maybe she became agitated because she realized that she had lost time (because Bob? or something else had taken over?) She said something happened to her. Was she the girl with the horrid frogroach? Or did something happen to Sarah recently?

Bullet Wound Lois Duffy must have had the Owl Ring on, and must have been the doppelganger, I’m theorizing.

Since we haven’t met Tina, when her name comes up I just picture Tina Belcher from Bob’s Burgers. Try it, it’s fun.

Tina’s daughter sounded so much like Audrey, I thought that is the name she’d give when asked about her mother. But she said Tina. And now I just heard this theory on a podcast: Could Tina actually BE Audrey? Mind. Blown.

One final note: That is, without a single doubt, THE most beautifully shot black and white footage that anyone has ever created. The contrast and depth is phenomenal. It is just so fucking gorgeous I could weep.

David Lynch is a gift to the world. I wish there were more than four episodes left.

Cole-Bishop and Other Matters

  • Ah, the roundup post. A blog staple for when you have several disjointed thoughts and none of them are quite complete. Shall we?
  • So the Cole-Bishop amendment changes the predicate date on vaping products and basically SAVES VAPING because without it, most vapor businesses will be closing their doors. And that, as they say in France, is bullshit, Pierre. I have already left messages for Sen. Bill Nelson, Sen. Marco Rubio, and Congresswoman Kathy Castor (say that five times fast) asking them to support this amendment. If you want to help save vaping, you can call your representatives’ offices today and leave messages, too. Because they are all leaving D.C. for a two week break and so this is a good time, says CASAA.org
  • Recently I started taking thermally stabilized Oxaloacetate. There are a couple of super-groovy things this supplement does, namely tricking your body into thinking it is fasting intermittently, and lowering the amount of glutamate in your system. Glutamate is an excitatory neurotransmitter that recent research is finding is implicated in mental illness. In excess, it ALSO happens to be what cancer cells eat. Oxaloacetate lowers those glutamate levels so the cells can’t feed. Noice. Anyway. I am a lot more peaceful in my brain since starting this supplement. I mean, yeah, I am still cray-cray, but wow, the difference is definitely noticeable.
  • In other supplement news, I’m also taking N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC), which apparently ALSO lowers glutamate levels, and is the precursor for glutathione, a very powerful antioxidant that scavenges free radicals and apparently has the delightful side effect of skin lightening. So my freckles are more faded than they were, and the general hyperpigmentation of my face has calmed down in an interesting fashion. Plus, even less glutamate!
  • My birthday is less than a month away, and I can’t wait 🙂 It’s gonna be an awesome Cinco de Mayo this year!
  • I await with anticipation the new Twin Peaks. There’s a fish in the percolator! I wish Jack Nance was still with us.
  • The obfuscation continues. Remember when you are watching the show, there is another, more important show going on that you are being distracted from.  I mean, look at John McCain’s face. ‘Nuff said?
  • Feud: Bette and Joan is freaking spectacular. Love it, love everything about it.

Walking Dead Season Finale Spoiler Speculationage

So if you did not watch The Walking Dead season finale this past Sunday, be forewarned that there are spoilers ahead

walking dead season finale

Lucille, as held by Negan in the comics

Bear in mind what I am about to say is moot because I don’t think the writers of the show even know yet who caught the business end of Lucille thanks to Negan. One of them was saying on Talking Dead they’d need to write a really amazing season seven premiere to justify this episode, which calls into question whether this decision has even been made yet. But, if it has, I think, after discussion with a couple of people, that I know who got the bat.

Ready?

Random Notes

 

Picture 199

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • An enormous thank you to the people who have been donating to my GoFundMe page recently. It is giving me renewed hope, which is especially needed right now because my mouth is really being a Pain. So thank you from the bottom of my heart to the very tippy top. <3
  • Ash vs Evil Dead is a Campy Tour de Force and I freakin’ love it! The first episode was absolutely fabulous – or should I say “Groovy”? Can’t wait for the next episode.
  • Daylight Savings Time is so strange. I envy Hawaii. Diamondhead and no Daylight Savings. AND they have Pele. Lucky Hawaii. The Aloha Spirit. Mahalo on the trash bins in McDonald’s. Live Large, Big Island.
  • I must admit being pretty down with Scream Queens too. Is Billie Lourd just the most adorable or what? And the writing is a real treat. I will be glad when the World Series is over so we can get back to the Red Devil.
  • Being off my meds screwed up my coursework in Python – I had one assignment left and I didn’t have time to finish it. So now I have to do the course over. But that’s okay. I will just know Python that much more when I am done.
  • The Crampingtons are visiting. They are rude guests. Not to be confused with Barbara Crampton, scream queen herself (Reanimator, You’re Next), who is by all accounts a swell gal.
  • I cannot stay awake. Lucky me, I’m the one person in the world that Adderall makes sleepy.
