Something annoying happened and I just lost my post about Covid-19. Appropriate I guess considering what’s happening everywhere. A symbolic sign that who knows what will happen next? I guess this says it better, I hope. A symbol of uncertainty. Always save one’s work. Always take the required precautions against this virus. But maybe there is a reason for losing one’s post: keep it short.
Thinking I was some kind of expert on U2, with reviews of their early albums posted about two years ago, I realized that I did never like that much their early albums anyway. It’s okay for those kind of reviewers who can appreciate their early material, but it was The Joshua Tree (1987) that made me aware that were actually other U2 albums out there, not that these early ones resonated much.
I like a straight-forward tale of good versus evil and I am trying to rack my brains when I last saw one. There are many tales out there–in books, at the cinema, on the web–of the one’s I get to see and hear, I can’t think of too many good and evil tales recently. When that happens I go back in time and think of Star Wars and Krull.
I think Krull is more straightforward and obvious in its portrayal of good versus evil than the original Star Wars film. But where are the good old fashioned good takes on evil tales, today? Alas life goes on for better or worse, but I do remember that there have been a couple or a few films of good and evil recently, just don’t recall the titles at the moment.
Starting over again, where do you begin?–Dolly Parton, from “Dolly, Dolly, Dolly” (1980)
What’s the time? Half past six. Missed half of it. Dread overwhelmed her. It was the news she missed.
