|Nov-22-16|| ||saffuna: Reading and hearing how the "Aces are high" would have gotten old real fast.|
|Nov-24-16|| ||WannaBe: Another brilliant (millennial)? Wonder if she used that as voter ID.|
|Nov-25-16|| ||WannaBe: Florence "I Speak Jive" Henderson have died. =((|
|Nov-25-16|| ||saffuna: Hard to believe, but you are mistaken. That was Barbara Billingsley, Beaver's mom.|
|Nov-26-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: <That honkey muff be messin' my old lady? Got to be runnin' cold upside down his head.>|
<<<>>Hey Holmes, I can dig it. No ain't gonna lay no mo' big rap up on you, man>>>
|Nov-26-16|| ||saffuna: Those two guys already had the act, and they wrote the dialogue. Then they pretty much disappeared. I would have thought they'd have moved on up.|
I read after the first rehearsals the director said "I can still understand you, we have to rewrite it." I also saw it in a theater where everyone was Spanish-speaking and reading subtitles. No humor, no laughs.
|Nov-26-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: <I also saw it in a theater where everyone was Spanish-speaking and reading subtitles. No humor, no laughs.>|
Much of humor is cultural. I think that is why dramatic cinema or theater translates better across culture and time, than does humor.
Hamlet, of course, is more renowned than The Taming of the Shrew, for example.
|Nov-26-16|| ||saffuna: Oh definitely. But in this case the "jive" language wasn't passed on to the audience at all.|
|Nov-26-16|| ||saffuna: In the scene in "The Fly" where Goldblum gives the first indication he's trransforming by putting about twenty spoonfuls of sugar in his tea, in Peru it took about seven spoonfuls before people started to catch on, not three or so as in the US.|
People put a lot more sugar in hot drinks there.

I believe it's "homes", Like in,"he's my homeboy".

I don't think so. I just listened to it again and we are both wrong. It is clearly "Homme". That is, no "L" and no "S" either.
But everyone should have a listen and decide for themselves:
"Homme" is French for "man", and I believe that later it was further corrupted to "homie" or "homey"
|Nov-26-16|| ||WannaBe: It was quite a day, almost a "Quadruple Header Day", started with UM/OSU, then Karjakin/Carlsen, then ND/USC, and ended the evening with Ucla/Cal.|
Raining outside, been this way for about two weeks now (on and off rain, sometimes no more than mist, other times steady but not heavy rain).
Much needed for NorCal, after almost 5 years of drought like condition... Can't and won't complaint.
Just stayed in this 4-day weekend and enjoyed sports and followed WC Chess.
|Nov-26-16|| ||saffuna: What is Cal doing playing UCLA after playing Stanford? The Big Game is supposed to be the final conference game.|
And how did UCLA score only 10 points? Cal had been giving up 40 a game.
|Nov-28-16|| ||WannaBe: New iOS update cause battery (drain) and inaccurate battery life report:|
Good job, Apple... Doth make one wonder how come these (same) issues keep popping up with their software releases.
Do they even do software testing before releasing them to the public??
|Nov-29-16|| ||WannaBe: In yet more Theranos news, the company is now being sued by Silicon Valley investors:|
|Nov-29-16|| ||saffuna: I'm shocked. Shocked, I say.
Thanks again for the article about George Shultz's grandson at Theranos. Amazing story.
|Nov-29-16|| ||WannaBe: SF Muni computer systems got hit with Ramsomware, refuses to pay.|
|Nov-30-16|| ||WannaBe: Over night, my (Win10 Pro) PC did some self update... Let's see if this screws anything up. Or not.|
|Dec-02-16|| ||WannaBe: So, a cellist, bassist and a flutist walked into a bar:|
Actually pretty hilarious, (at least their expressions)
|Dec-02-16|| ||WannaBe: Alright, after the last Win10 (major) updates, my Internet Explorer's as unstable as ever... (Need Java for Chess Viewer Deluxe, and hence, I am still using IE)|
At least 4 or 5 lockups/crashes a day, so now I am running both IE (CG.com) and Edge for everything else. This did not happen before that automatic update performed by Microsoft. Ugh!
|Dec-02-16|| ||WannaBe: In the latest round of layoffs in Silicon Valley, G. Schultz, S. Nunn, H. Kissinger, B. Frist, W. Perry (Not the Refrigerator) will be out of work on January 1.|
|Dec-03-16|| ||WannaBe: This is great, upgraded my internet speed, by 5x faster, for a few more bucks a month. Instead of taking two month to resign a game on GameKnot, it now only take me 8 hours!!|
I love modern technology.
|Dec-04-16|| ||WannaBe: Raiders finally got the lead vs Buffalo!
Touchdown RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA - DERS!!
|Dec-04-16|| ||WannaBe: RAAAAAAAAAAAA - DERS!
RAAAAAAAAAAAA - DERS!!
Gonna be rockin' like 1950s in Kansas City, Thursday, two ol' AFL foes that really don't like each other (much).
Oakland have already lost to Kansas City at home earlier in the season. If Oakland lose again, they'd lose the (head-to-head) tie-breaker.
Gonna be fun Thursday Night Football!!!
|Dec-04-16|| ||saffuna: <wannabe> How far back do you go with the Raiders vs. Kansas City? To the 60s and Clem Daniels vs. Otis Taylor?|
