Our sago palm survived the snow storm of 1989 and came back
from the cold, brown dead. It was transplanted successfully to Mandeville.
And now, once again, having been turned completely brown and dead looking by
our ridiculous long cold winter, it's BACK! DH cut away all the old dead
brown palm branches yesterday to reveal success.
We watched The
Place Beyond the Pines last night. I'm not sure why. Why does Ryan
Gosling need a baby or a facial tattoo or, indeed, any tattoos? Talk about
the proverbial fish in need of a bicycle.
I suppose everyone else has
already seen this movie but in case you have stumbled across this page and
you haven't seen it, here is the official spoiler warning. Read no further
if you don't want to know major spoilers involving major character
The theme of this
movie is, men is dumb as shit, yall. It is quickly established that
Gosling's character is an illiterate who can barely write his own name, but
he isn't the only idiot in the film. Just assume if he's a dude, he's dumb.
And if she's a girl, she's whiny but fortunately not on screen all that
We're barely 30 minutes or so into this movie before Gosling's
idiocy becomes so great that he has painted himself into a corner and gotten
himself shot dead. Then the movie continues on for another hour. There are
no girls really, so Bradley Cooper's son -- I have forgotten who plays him if
I ever cared in the first place -- is the scheming chick who lands Ryan
Gosling's son in jail and in the hospital. Gosling's son is played by the
lovely and talented (and one would hope not too TERRIBLY underaged) Dane
DeHaan, so at least we are not devoid of eye candy for the rest of the film.
So anyway I'm not saying that all the publicity stills I saw for this
movie had Ryan Gosling in them...but all the publicity stills I saw for this
movie had Ryan Gosling in them. Which might have led one to believe that
Gosling waited to die until the end of the movie. It just goes to show. I
should have read the spoilers...
back - next
