    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    Just watched a brief interview with someone named Katarina Barley, VP of the EU Parliament, apparently. She answered every question clearly, candidly and with an obvious grasp of the various issues raised. Very impressive. No idea what her politics are but I wish we had a few more like her here in Canada, and everywhere else for that matter.

    The Hunt Silly social satire with a few good moments. 6 of 10 Bacurau Similar to "The Hunt", thematically, but a much deeper movie. 8 of 10 The Prospect Sci-fi that doesn't break any new ground, but is a very enjoyable watch. It would have been great to see in a theatre. 7 of 10 The Outpost A bit like "Zulu" I suppose: cut off group of (US) soldiers against vast hordes of (Taliban) attackers. Based on a true story. Some excellent camerawork. 7 of 10

    Earth and Blood I just assumed it was made in Canada, as it was en Francais and set in at a sawmill. Actually made in France/Belgium. Watchable, but basically a "Die Hard" rip-off without the humour. 5 of 10

    Donald Trump

    He's a fucking lunatic. Broadway pisses all over 5th Avenue.

    Happy Canada Day!

    Much like Canada herself, here's a Canada Day gift to the world: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07G1NMFZ5

    Other Football - 2019/20

    Lazio take the lead. 10 minutes left. Now for BHA to brighten this gloomy Tuesday by thumping United, 1-1.

    Immobile with the equalizer for Lazio early in the second half against Torino. They need another to keep pressure on Juve.

    What differentiates pillar 1 from pillar 2?

    Film and TV 'Fuck Yeah!' moments.

    At about the 1:40 mark of this clip the wild bunch all look at each other and decide they're going to go down in a blaze of gory glory. One of my favourite movie moments, as it's the start of one of my favourite movie scenes.

    The Boys

    Yes, second to "Better Call Saul" on my list of "can't wait"s.

    Rate the last TV Show you watched

    Sri Lanka's Killing Fields Channel 4 2011 documentary I generally avoid these shows now, but I thought I'd make an exception in this case. Can't recommend it--it's horrific, and since those responsible are either dead or back in power in Sri Lanka, extremely disheartening.

    Carroll tackling La Porte: (any excuse)

    Other Football - 2019/20

    Sheffield equalize against Arsenal in the 86th minute. Deserved--Arsenal really aren't very good. Then again, neither are Sheffield.

    The GF book thread

    The Cage: The Fight for Sri Lanka and the Last Days of the Tamil Tigers By Gordon Weiss One of the more affecting books I've read lately. Up there with "My Promised Land" I mentioned upthread. Does a good job of providing the background history of the country and it's place in the wider world, and then details both the (obviously tragic) events of the last few months of the war, and the diplomatic and political machinations surrounding them. I'm still hoping to go there next year, virus willing. I won't be taking a copy of this book, but I will be taking a much deeper understanding of my destination having read it.

    Moment of the season 19/20

    Milner vs. Bournemouth Like most of the season, an impressive display of skill and determination.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    I think it needs a new name. Maybe "Queen Anne's Revenge" (nee "Concorde") as you head out to plunder the free (trade) world. Or perhaps "Endurance" (nee "Polaris")? Something tells me it's going to be a rough trip--you're going to need resolute leadership, strong crew solidarity, and unequaled feats of navigation to get through it unscathed.

    To be fair, the picture was taken at Christmas.

    Keir Starmer

    I can see a lot of people very busy scouring their/others' twitter feeds for the next few hours.

    Hopefully for him they never get divorced, what with her right to leave with what she brought into the marriage. All the best to them both.

    Quantum physics is fascinating. Just one amazing thing after another. I'll look for that one, thanks.

    The Foodie thread

    Home-made bread, toasted, some diced cheddar cheese, then an over-easy egg on top, with the yolk seeping down melting the cheese and onto the toast. Cup of coffee, cup of tea. Perfect way to kick off a lazy Sunday morning watching the unmentionable. As much as I enjoyed being off work, there's something to be said for old routines: swearing away at work all week, then doing sweet fuck all on the week-end.
