|Cool cheek caterpillar, but look at that otherwise bland face.|
There's no room in this story for bland people.
So, I'm a long time Walking Dead fan and I confess I have never liked Beth Greene. Every scene she's in is a waste of my time and I usually go and find something else to do while she's on. She sings. So what.
So this last episode addressed the yawning story line of what happened to Beth. I really hoped she had been disappeared forever in favour of more interesting characters and their story lines. I know I wouldn't have given her another thought. What may have happened to Beth didn't even occupy one of my brain cells.
Imagine my disappointment when virtually an entire episode was devoted to a story line involving a person I had hoped I'd seen the last of. Will she turn out to be a bad ass? Don't care. I walked out after forty minutes even though the possibility existed that there might have been a scene with Daryl in it. I rejected that so I wouldn't have to see one more second of Beth!!! That is messed up, Walking Dead writers. Messed up!
Instead of a normal episode of The Walking Dead this week, we got Beth starring in some B-movie zombie flick with wooden acting, laughable dialogue, and barely any zombies. If this was called Zombie Hospital and airing at 2 a.m. on Syfy, we would've changed the channel - Dave Nemetz
We would've changed the channel, AMC!!!
Is the Hospital story line even in the comic? The writers said they were following the comics a little more closely this season.
Meanwhile, who will save Beth? Who the hell cares.

Before SAH was established in acting, he says he fiddled around with composing. The piece in the video was written November 7, 1964. A gloomy, cold, rainy day. I'm no classical music expert but I think it's a really lovely piece.

It means "dark roast". As in coffee. I have no idea how to pronounce it but the torréfaction foncée blend has a rich flavour profile.
Here's how Tim Horton's rolled out their new blend.

Audrey Hepburn died January 20, 1993, in Tolochenaz, Switzerland. She was 63 years old. No question she was a quality person, I read her biography, I've seen her movies. She was beautiful. She ate tulip bulbs during the war. She studied ballet dancing. She worked to support the Dutch resistance during WWII raising money by ballet performances and acting as a courier. She was a humanitarian. She was worthy of admiration.
What difference does it make if she would have been 85 today, she's dead and she isn't 85. These things creep me out. Like we're tallying someone's years of life long after they cease to live. She would have been 85, yes, but she's not alive so...why do we need to know this? I know I see things pragmatically and I think I sound harsh, I don't mean to, but I truly don't understand this thing we do. What am I missing?
|Now that's what I call beautiful!|
A man walks into a London railway station and sees a random piano. Magic ensues because it's not just any man. It's Henri Herbert, pianist, and he knows how to play pretty decently.
How were they not dancing??

Bass fiddle, sax, catchy beat, video filmed on the streets of Toronto, crabs, what's not to love? You can't listen to it and not want to dance.
The title takes its name from the crab in the bucket syndrome where a group of crabs will pull down any crab that tries to escape, thereby ensuring their collective demise. I got that from Wiki. So you know it's true.
