Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Hard to believe but next year will mark the 50-year anniversary since man last set foot on the moon. 50-years! It's been way too long... OK I'll say it! By picking Amy Schumer as their spokesperson is Hellman's trying to tell us that their mayonnaise will make you fat and unfunny? Not that it matters to me - I prefer Miracle Whip...  There is something so satisfying about watching dominoes cascade... Not an Alex Jones fan but it looks like the people who were saying the successful efforts to "de-platform" him a couple years ago would quickly lead to wide-spread censorship were right... Recently re-watched the original Thomas Crown Affair with Steve McQueen. The lead was supposedly originally offered to Sean Connery but he couldn't take the role. Connery later said he regretted turning down the movie. That would have been a completely different flick...  


  1. Ah yes, one of my favorites. Faye Dunaway was perfect for her role as well, but that was a Steve McQueen performance all the way. The scene where Faye Dunaway's character tries to distract McQueen when they are playing chess is very sexy. Good film.

  2. I actually liked the re-make as well. You can't say that about many films.
