Welcome to The Cirque du Boomie where the dancers will kick your teeth out and you have unlimited credit in the casino.

Feb-05-2010 - The Don said so long ago that in 5 years The Cirque would be totally legitimate. Today I see a thriving casino business and fan dancers from Yonkers. Good times!

Nice call on the The Friends Of Distinction eseh it's always time for some cheery funk.

Be advised I have all of Ken Burns' new epic 34 hour documentary on Vietnam and he has outdone himself. I just finished episode 8 and it's incomparable- well maybe equal with his previous magnus carlsen THE UNCIVIL WAR with Shelby "Lyman" Foote.

Seriously brah this is not to be missed. Accurate and harrowing. Just the facts from people who were actually there. I even spotted someone I "knew" Jack Todd who was a fifth columnist for the Montreal Gazette when I was at uni there.

I was surprised to see how well Robert Mcnamara and Richard Nixon came off- it looks to me like they were playing "only moves" in a losing game- forced, if you ask me.

Mcnamara was the first American official to recognize that trying to help South Vietnam was a dog from the get go.

We get to hear his now declassified secret memos to HEY HEY LBJ HOW MANY KIDS DID YOU KILL TODAY.

You can also hear him trying to defend his legacy in Errol Morris' equally brilliant documentary THE FOG OF WAR.

I think you would grok this new Ken Burns moving picture brah I can't say enough aboot it.

Luckily if you are interested I can DROP BEAR it.

Oh forgot to mention it also features a meticulously chosen 60s and 70s soundtrack in which each song is placed in precise chronological order to match the timeline of the actual Vietnam War.

All have been remastered and the sound is phenomenal- significantly better than on radio record CD or other dinosaur technology.

I only listen to FLAC FILES I steal from the internets.

That's just how I roll can you dig me.

<Teem> Just to give you a bit of context about Nixon coming off better than I thought he would- this is relative to how terribly the rest of them came off.

Two years before <My Lai>, a wholesale slaughter of villagers in <Pinkville> had been covered up by the army. When a whistle blower finally sent letters to every government official about it, the US government began an investigation.

Nixon, who to be fair had been previously unaware of the cover up, doubted the story. In fact, he thought it had been fabricated wholesale by communist sympathizer anti war activists on the home front.

This is what he actually said, verbatim thanks to his habit of taping himself:

"It's those dirty rotten Jews from New York who are behind it"

The boys can be had at Telltale games. The first two seasons are great. The third season has some moments but I think misses the point of the series, which is the banter between dog and bunny. The creator, Steve Purcell, worked on the first two series. They seemed to need him as the third series has almost no clever repartee between the boys. Go finger.

Roughly speaking, Nixon was a domestic nightmare but excelled at foreign policy. He accomplished some major successes overseas and made the world a safer place. Obviously, one can point to disasters such as Chile and Cambodia. But ending the Vietnam war, opening relations with China, and negotiating arms treaties with Russia were all extraordinary accomplishments.

<Breezy Day brand Timpons>

Yes that's made very clear in this most impartial of Ken Burns documentaries. I mean he's always impartial but he was scrupulous on this one. He may think of it as the culmination of his career- certainly it's a masterpiece and alone would amply serve as his sterling legacy.

<Tricky Dick> was indeed as good as his word, steadily drawing down troop levels with each passing year. Meanwhile, his sidekick <"Harry" Kissinger> was pulling out every trick in the book in France in order to get the CONG to let the US lower the curtain whilst retaining even a shred of dignity.

One point Burns goes to some length to make clear is that <Dick's> secret bombing of the HO CHI MIN trails from Laos and Cambodia into Vietnam did indeed significantly reduce the level of US casualties.

Turns out <LBJ> got that one wrong- he always insisted on bombing Hanoi which was not effective in reducing supplies to the KONG at the front. Bombing the trails that led into Vietnam turned out to be a much more effective ploy.

<Teem> don't forget to download the two Borgs brah because I'm uploading the first episode of KEN BURNS "Vietnam" which is superb, as promised.

I'm not sure if it will overcook the Drop bear dough but I didn't want to delete the brace of Borgs in case you didn't download them yet.

I've been downloading off your messages which have the files attached apparently. They never reached the Box curiously. Tragically, the files you deleted were my epic samples of film criticism. Well, not much lost there as I could make neither hide nor hair of those two films so they were just the cluckings of a headless chicken.

Hmm maybe there's a simpler way- we both have access to the folders right? So if I move the Vietnam into the movie folder you should have automatic access.
