Streaming TV Guide – Week 43 of 2020! What’s recommended this week from Netflix!

 

 

The Haunting of Bly Manor Coming to Netflix in October 2020

Mike Flanagan’s THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE was one of the best things I saw in 2020, and one episode in, while different and not as ‘out of the gate’ frightening as its predecessor; his THE HAUNTING OF BLY MANOR looks  like another rewarding entry from this acclaimed creator.

 

I had no interest in this kick-starter funded TV show, that revisits a 30 year old film; however I have to say I was wrong. I binge-watched all 2 existing seasons on Netflix over the course of a weekend and it is… AWESOME! It surprisingly is not just a cash grab on nostalgia but is actually a well thought out, well written and well performed treatise on rivalries and violence and adulthood, that resonates perhaps even more richly and effectively today than it did 30 years ago.

It indeed, is smarter and even more nuanced and, dare I say, superior to the beloved source material, as it introduces a world of no simple heroes, and villains, but culpable and complicated shades of grey. A great two seasons, and I greatly look forward to the planned third (and perhaps final) season. Fantastic performances by actors old and new. It joins shows such as TAKEN and  TEEN WOLF that are superior to the movies that inspired them! Highly Recommended!

In WordPress how to EASILY Use Classic Editor over their garbage new Gutenberg Editor!

It took me 30 minutes, and lots of surfing and viewing unhelpful youtube videos till I found a simple way to get back to the Classic editor screen.

First all the hacks about installing the classic plugin do not work, because you now have to PAY to install plugins. That is a big no-no for me.

So how do you get back to classic editing, without having to pay to install the classic plugin?

Okay, on to the tip.

To avoid wordpress’ default AWFUL editor and get back to the old classic editor FOR FREE, at the time of this writing, you can do the following:

 

 

 

When you login to your WordPress.com site on the left hand menu bar, under MY SITE, select WP ADMIN.

 

That will then bring up the above looking screen. Select ALL POSTS.

 

 

At the top of the page that comes up you will see POSTS: ADD NEW. Use the drop down menu and switch it from BLOCK to CLASSIC EDITOR. TADA!!! You now can use the functional and much easier to use CLASSIC EDITOR!!!  Hair Pulling and Gnashing of teeth averted.

To Debate or Not to Debate, and Blights of the American Sky

 

If after the past 4 years, you need a debate to tell you who not to vote for. You have not been paying attention, AT ALL, to this country in the last four years.

It is a very simple argument, you are either for this idea of representative government and the popular vote and democracy and a nation of, by, and for the people.

Or you are for an end to democracy, and an end to liberty, and a return to the age of Robber Barons who got rich while enslaving  great swaths of North America, South America, and much of the rest of the world, and plundering the environment.

It is simple Arithmetic.

In my opinion Biden should not have agreed to the debate. He should have stood on his record, and flatly said, his 4years in office, is all the debate the American people need. ‘My stance is, I hold everything he has done in these 4 years in slight regard,  and my job is to fix it.

The American people’s decision is simple, and they do not need a FOX news, to decide it for them.

Freedom or Slavery.

That is your choice.’

Mic drop.

The debate moderated by a biased ‘news’ agency, and against someone who is arrogantly ignorant, proudly and belligerently amoral, that knows reason not, is tantamount to agreeing to wrestle a pig.

This is what we call a simile. It is not a direct affirmation of porcine attributes to any one individual, it is a for instance. :).

As in, for instance you can do it, and wrestle the pig, but at the end of the day, it’s the pigs element, the talk show mechanics of outrage cinema, and you are just playing a sport that only serves to demean you, and bring you down to the porcine one’s level. Even if you win, you lose.

This is a simple choice.

Don’t let ‘president choosers’ like Fox News, or ABC news or insert corporate owned talking head here, make that choice for you, under the lie of ‘democracy’. We’ll have Democracy when we kill the Electoral College. When we replace the two party system with a true multi-party system.

But we have to start with the fight in front of us.

Remove, what impeachment should have removed years ago, this blight from the American sky.
