I’m watching Rocky IV which I haven’t seen probably since it came out. It really is extraordinarily good filmmaking. It’s an action movie and a basic morality tale, that’s what it is. My favorite character is Ivan Drago’s girlfriend.

I need an Ivan Drago haircut. A brush cut with frosted tips? I can pull that off.

There was a discussion earlier about this shitty fucking fire season and these shitty fucking Santa Ana’s and it turns out Raymond Chandler said it best close to a century ago.
“There was a desert wind blowing that night. It was one of those hot dry Santa Anas that come down through the mountain passes and curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands’ necks. Anything can happen. You can even get a full glass of beer at a cocktail lounge.”

Weird. When I lived in Redlands over 40 years ago, I loved the Santa Anas, because I could finally see the top of San Gorgonio.

yeah right

I climbed that motherfucker! True story.
Most of My Whitney too.

Now I hate climbing the damn stairs.

I visited the Verdun battlefield about 15 years ago. It was a crappy rainy day, I was by myself in a rental car. I visited the museum, and went to Fort Douaumont. I then went to the cemetery/ossuary. I didn’t even know what an ossuary was at the time.
I looked through the windows of the ossuary and saw that the place was full of bones. I initially thought I was looking at bones that were being catalogued for identification/research. As I walked along the walls of the building, I realized that this was just a mass grave. I grew short of breath, had to sit down, and could not stop tears for some time. Even if all the dead were assholes (and being mostly German and French, many of them no doubt were), no one deserved this kind of anonymous slaughter.
Building is 450 feet long and contains the unidentified skeletal remains of around 130,000 soldiers.
A very sobering experience which I have no desire to repeat.

Same ratio of assholes as any country.
