Out of the Blue

That fake me on Twitch eventually got banned yesterday. Thank you to those who also reported it, I'm sure that helped get this cleared up. I've also had to report accounts on Facebook for impersonating a cousin not once, but twice in the past two days. She's had the same thing happen in the past, so I've warned her she seems to have a fox in the henhouse of her friends list. It's like the wild west out there!

Obituary: Shane MacGowan, Pogues Singer and Poet, Dead at 65. Thanks Acleacius.
Obituary: Frances Sternhagen, who played Bunny MacDougal on ‘Sex and the City,’ dead at 93.
Obituary: American diplomat Henry Kissinger dies at 100.

My favorite role was opposite Sean Connery in Outland. She played the grumpy doctor and stole every scene she was in. Movie still holds up, rewatched it earlier this year.
It definitely holds up. I have had it on recently a few times while working. The only thing I would change is get rid of that dorky letter to his wife at the end.

Great sets, everything is gross.

Fake facebook relatives and friends are a growing problem. Had a couple of fake friends and family request a friend invite.

Just do not use your real name. I deleted my real name account and then gave myself a fake name, contacted only certain family members and only invite those I want to know I'm even there. I've been quite left alone since, as I do not technically exist, on Facebook. I assume the name was used in real life somewhere, maybe.

I had my real name for my first years on Facebook, got a bunch of invites/requests. Some from people who wanted to remind me of my school days. After telling them to... pee up a rope, they would stop messaging me at least.

Yeah, I rewatch it once or twice a year myself. Sometimes I'll toss it on just to watch a certain part and end up watching it all. Definitely one of the most underrated sci-fi flicks ever. And she was great in it.

Dr. Marian Lazarus: In the first place, the company wanted the bodies shipped out quickly. In the second place, when a person exposes himself to zero-pressure atmosphere, there isn't a whole lot left to inspect. In the third place, you're becoming a nuisance.

Marshal William T. O'Niel: Yes, I know. I would like a report of all of these incidents that have happened during the past six months. I'd like it really soon. Or I might just kick your nasty ass all over this room. That's a Marshal joke.

So long Shane, thanks for the music. I too am amazed he made it this long. And if you want any more help feeling older today, it's Billy Idol's birthday. He's 68. 68. Oi vey.
