2017 v10.hopeittastesgood

Golly, half way through October. Been busy. Been on the road a lot lately. Been playing with the teenagers a lot. And have not been hurt. We go do flying trapeze lessons tomorrow.

Where are we? Full moon past. Weather is turning. Migratory birds happening.

Plenty of Bluezz happening… A nondescript mass killer in Vegas. Korea sure as hell rattling their swords. Storms n floods n winds n more storms and floods and winds. NFL have principles only when it suits them? Fire in Napa valley… the price of wine will go up.

My favourite blues-worthy tid bit is the Harvey Weinstein mess.

The blatant hypocrisy of the west-coast-liberal-left is nothing new, but this Weinstein gig rings an hypocritical bell of some sort.

The fake horror and shock and rejection is, well, its fake. And the assault and desertion of sleazy Weinstein is like a fresh shit sandwich. Nobody wants it, nobody wants to taste it, but after the liberal BS of accepting the likes of Bill Clinton and his dalliances, well, having to now dance and sing and be indignant, after knowing all and everything forever, means you gotta take a bite of the big, fresh shit sandwich.

I hope it tastes good.

I may be a bit out of line slagging the liberal-left. Abuse happens all the time. It is not new. And is never acceptable.

Abuse of office, position, power, money… its nasty and unacceptable wherever it takes place. Left or right, up or down.

Hypocrisy as well has not a limit nor a bias.

But I am a bit pissed off by people I admire. I think of Meryl Streep. I don’t know why but I really like her. Like her movies. Disliked her during the Democratic Convention when she was acting stupid but I still liked her as a performer.

But her public words in regards to the matter are important… they are important because she is a respected female in the “business” and we / I want to know what she thinks… not just about Hillary and politics but about Weinstein too. I vicariously respect her enough to put weight in what she says.

First off she was quiet. Supposedly off-line. When she did speak out… “Streep, who in 2012 called Weinstein “God” in a Golden Globe acceptance speech and appeared in numerous films produced by him, said the “disgraceful news about Harvey Weinstein has appalled those of us whose work he championed”.

When she says she is “appalled” does she mean she is just now appalled or has been appalled, but has not spoken out? I know she stated she “did not know about the reported claims that he had undressed in front of actresses and assistants or asked young women to give him massages.”

Which is patent bullshit.

Guy like Weinstein don’t keep secrets. He is a bully and an abuser. He bullies and abuses compliance and cooperation. he is, as Ms Streep said “God”. People don’t tell god’s secrets.

You try to tell me Ms Streep didn’t know, even a little bit about decades of abuse.

Sorry, don’t buy it.

Hope it do taste good…

More later
