A movie night musing.
I hear it said there are no absolutes.
Maybe that’s why I love movies so. In the flicks there are immutable truths. A couple came immediately to mind as I reveled in The Legend of Spider Forest. I’m sure you’ve seen this treasure of a film countless times and cherish it as I do.
Roger’s Immutable Film Truth (RIFT) #1 – Within five seconds after the words; “Get them!” have been uttered, a chase/fight/melee will ensue.
RIFT #2 – Be assured that as soon as you hear the statement; “They can’t have gotten far.” – they have.
It’s good to have these moral landmarks to guide us.
RIFT #2 is particularly important to understand these days. Mastering this concept makes our current president decipherable. It’s the primary law of the alternate dimension in which he lives.
He says “Hoax.” It’s not.
He says “We’ve turned the corner.” We haven’t.
He says “It will disappear.” I still see it.
He says “Hydroxy-snake-oil will cure it.” Nope.
He says voting by mail is bad and fraudulent as he posts his vote.
He says Biden probably plays more golf than he does…
He says he pays millions in federal tax…
He says he’s rich…
You get the idea? He points the way to truth by pointing unerringly in the opposite direction. Once we learn the language, he is the most transparent politician in history. Clearly, he’s living by the rules of terrible old movies like The Legend of Spider Forest.
It’s an odd political concept.
2020…….spider forest……it’s plausible.
Democracy, fairness, grace, civility – disappearing?
They can’t have gotten far.
Oh, by the way, I voted today.
