“IT” Chapter 2


I finally got around to watching part II of the update/remake of Stephen King’s “IT”.

I can’t say that I am a huge fan of King’s writing, but I have read a few of his 160,000 books.  I generally think that is a a pretty good writer, but quite frankly, I think a lot of his endings suck.

I really liked the original 1990 TV mini-series.  I think that with the way King writes (1200 pages per book !!!) that TV mini series are the best way to do a King production.  It can be shown in 2-4 episodes and be done with production value that is good.  Quite frankly, in “IT II”, way too much was put into production and “special” effects.

Ok, I’m getting ahead of myself.  So I need to say this…………..

IT Chapter 2 SUCKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes sucks.

I don’t recall in “IT Chapter One” if I was disappointed with too much.  It certainly wasn’t great but it was fine.

Chapter Two starts off with me literally wanting to turn the movie off.  Apparently, some social justice warrior involved with the movie wanted to gratuitously interject “homophobia bad bigots intolerance”.

Also, my wife noted right away that this movie was made as a vehicle just to say “FUCK” as often as they could.

At the end of the movie when the Losers were fighting Pennywise underground, all I could think was that the special effects guy was a huge fan of “Nightmare On Elm Street.”  Not sure if there was some kind of inside joke at the end when the movie marquee displayed “Nightmare On Elm Street”.

Speaking of inside jokes, was it another inside joke with King’s character saying that the ending of the writer’s book sucked?

The ending of this version sucked about as bad as the first version.  The “Eater of Worlds” is destroyed  by being belittled and insulted ???

Meh, I’ve seen it once and nevermore.  But I will watch the original again.


Peak “Astro-Turfing”

Michael Bloomberg Is Paying People $2500 A Month To Say Nice Things About Him On Social Media

“The 500 “deputy digital organizers” will earn an estimated $2,500 per month — more than some campaigns pay senior staff — to “to promote Mr. Bloomberg to everyone in their phones’ contacts by text each week and make social-media posts supporting him daily,” the Journal reports. Organizers are expected to spend between 20 and 30 hours per week actively promoting Bloomberg on all of their social media platforms and making personal contacts where appropriate.”


Democrats couldn’t be more fake !!!

Popeyes Chicken Sandwich

On my way one evening to a candidates debate and I needed to find a place for dinner.

A “Popeyes” was on my side of the street so I thought I would give it a go.  I do not think That I had ever eaten at a “Popeyes” before.  I like fried chicken sandwiches and have heard a few things in the news in the last six months about some kind of super good spicy chicken sandwich at Popeyes.

Well, I checked the men and it was a coin toss as to get the spicy chicken or the regular chicken and I went with the regular combo.

Popeyes Chicken

A pretty good sandwich.

A good crunchy fried coating.

What I didn’t like was that the sandwich came in a foil package that steams the bun.

Don’t like that at all.  The bun should be toasted.

Pretty good seasoned fries as a side and a lot of them !!

I will probably find my way back and give that spicy sandwich.




Beyond Meat (Free Stuff At Work Day)

Free Stuff at Work Day !!


We had a sponsored luncheon put on by :

Beyond Meat:

Overall , completely Meh !

For both the sausage and the burger, it was a texture issue.  Both items are like pate, completely smooth and ground up.  There needs to be a slight toughness, snap and resistance when eating a sausage or burger.

The only thing I could taste from the burger was fake charbroil.

The burger meat might be OK if ground up in chili, spaghetti or tacos.

I got some free coupons for the burgers but certainly won’t go out of my way to get them.
