(Notes from a DNC Strategy Meeting)

"OK, we're having a hell of a time with Trump here. What can we do to change the game."

"I know, let's carry out a sneaky, underhanded attack while cloaking ourselves in the robes of righteousness."

"OK, but isn't that what we always do?"

"Shut up. GOPers are gropers, right?"

"You know it."

"Buncha damn hypocrites. We all know that Mike Pence is chasing interns around his desk while he's busy not having lunch any woman except his wife."

"You're not making a lot of sense there."

"Shut up. Nobody will notice and the media will never point it out."

"But we need to appear to be non-partisan. Calling it 'Expose the GOP Gropers' makes us sound petty and cowardly."

"But aren't we though?"

"Shut up. Wait, I for it, let's call it 'Believe All Women'."

"I like it. It makes it sound like the Republicans never believe any women. Plus, it sounds all generic and ecumenical and shit."

"Also, we need a hashtag. I suggest '#MeToo'."

"'Me too' what?"

"Got groped by a GOP guy. They can all come forward and tell their stories and everyone we be obligated to believe them."

"Yes. Because 'Believe All Women.' The moral imperative will already be in place."

"Exactly. They're screwed. What could possibly go wrong?"

AoSHQ Weekly Prayer List

Please submit any prayer requests to “Annie’s Stew” at apaslo atsign hotmail dot com.



Praise Reports:

4/8 - NaughtyPine thanks God that her BFF and her BFF’s mother have been safely moved into an apartment.


Prayer Requests:

4/7 - Farmer requests prayers for her aunt and uncle, who lost their daughter today. She was 48.

4/24 - Please pray for comfort for “B” and the rest of his family as they grieve the loss of his younger brother. His brother was a serviceman, a beloved father, and passed away due to liver failure (no root cause, just bad luck).

4/29 - SH asks for prayers that the boys would graduate without problems this May and that things would turn out as they hope.

5/5 - H requests prayers for his daughter, who is struggling with a relapse in her eating disorder. The shutdown has greatly complicated the situation.


For Healing:

Caiwyn-who sometimes posts, asks for prayers for their dad who has pancreatic cancer. “Radiation and surgery brought time, but the cancer has still spread.” Prayers for healing.
Brother Cavil had been in the hospital and seems to be dealing with bacterial infection. Prayers for healing.

3/12-Browndog reports that mother’s house is taken care of. Has some financial issues but told that those will be taken care of. Radiation extended till from 28 to 48 days. He thanks the horde for the continuing prayers for healing
4/22 Update: Browndog sends thanks to the Horde for the prayers and well wishes. His treatments are complete, for now.

4/8 MrObvious asks for prayers for his wife, who has been diagnosed with Scleroderma. She broke her ankle on 12/3/19 and has had a very slow recovery due to the Scleroderma medications. Prayers for safety and healing.

5/16- The Village Idiot’s Apprentice asks for prayers for Anna, from Ohio, as well as the other residents and staff of her Assisted Living home. She is 99 years old, and just tested positive for Covid-19, as well as many of the staff and residents of the facility. Patient #1 has already passed.

5/16 - The Village Idiot’s Apprentice also asks for prayers for his Uncle Bill, who was hospitalized in Pennsylvania with possible a-fib.

5/19 - M needs prayers for his grandniece, Chloe, who was born with bad kidneys. She’s a year old now, her kidneys have been removed, and she is on daily dialysis and a feeding tube, to try and get her ready for transplant surgery. Please pray for health for her and strength for her parents. There have been a number of scares with fevers and seizures.

5/19 - CFO Mom has a request for prayers for her husband. He was unwell for a couple of weeks, and has been hospitalized since going to the ER Sunday evening. He has cellulitis, which may have gone to sepsis. He is on IV antibiotics, and now they have discovered he has an irregular heartbeat which is causing other risks and problems. He is also on a heparin drop to prevent blood clots. It’s very hard to not be able to visit and be with him to hear what the doctors have to say, or see and hear what is going on.

5/19 - OregonMuse's older sister was in an automobile accident a few days ago. She suffered some broken ribs and a broken arm. She'll be in rehab 4-6 weeks. Pray for her healing, and more importantly, that she would come to know the Lord through this experience.


Job Issues:

In addition to the people who have been on the prayer list for some time, please add Brother Cavil who needs a better paying job that meets his skill set. He also needs “rough places made smooth”.


Relationship Concerns:

Cybersmythe’s wife decided to leave him. He asked for prayers for her peace.

For submission guidelines and other relevant info, please contact Annie's Stew, who is managing the prayer list. You can contact her at apaslo at-sign hotmail dot com

If you see a prayer request posted in a thread comment, feel free to copy and paste it and e-mail it to Annie's Stew. She tries to keep up with the requests in the threads, but she's not here all of the time, so she may not see it unless you e-mail it to her.

Please note: Prayer requests are generally removed after five weeks or so unless we receive an update.

Please remember the Prayer of St. Francis:
http://www.prayerguide.org.uk/stfrancis.htm

I've never quite understood the appeal of Jolie. She's far from bad looking, but classifying her as one of the most beautiful women in the world feels off to me.

++++++++++++
Two things that I think led to tremendous prominence:
1) She is good enough for most mainstream movies that aren't too demanding (with some exceptions where she was actually quite good, like The Bone Collector).
b. She had the turbo-powered ultra hawt.

That said, having lived in North Carolina, I know the election for the governor's seat takes place in presidential election years. Will this relatively conservative state dump their Dem governor?

Two things that I think led to tremendous prominence:

b. She had the turbo-powered ultra hawt.
Posted by: Joe Mannix (Not a cop!) at May 20, 2020 11:21 AM (hYcqw)


I remember seeing her in some film, early in her career. She wasn't the star of the thing, and I remember almost nothing about the movie... it was some murder mystery type thing.

And then she showed up in a low cut top... traipsing around like the queen of the trailer park.

Oh my, did she make an impression.

Can she act? Hell if I know.

I think she later got some work on her face, as they all do, and turned fairly generic looking after that. I don't know why they do it, but she made quite a career out of it, so who am I to judge.

164 With actors/actresses and some athletes, especially olympians, I'm interested in the nature/nurture questions. What I mean: Angelina, seems she could have become an actress even if raised by wolves. But for instance, Drew Barrymore, how much of her success is due to her DNA, and how much is due to her family knowing how to guide her to stardom?

Or some olympians, they are amazing athletically, but also, I have noticed quite a few that had olympian parents. And I wonder if part of them making it, was their folks pushing them and telling them they could do it. And I suppose knowing about proper training and coaching and mindset. Where maybe "normal" families lack that knowledge?

213 It is kind of amusing watching the left try to spin their hypocrisy and claim they never said any of that and besides they didn't mean it that way, shut up.

Its not working. They look awful and stupid. The worst they accused Kavanaugh of has less support and isn't as bad as what Biden has been accused of by a dozen or so women. They trotted out this sad assortment of human detritus to attack Trump with and are ignoring the ones who've been complaining about Biden for 40 years.

I dunno if these women are telling the truth or not. Frankly at this point there's no way to prove anything and its the past.

What matters to me is watching angry leftist women who screamed for the heads of people like Kavanaugh and Moore and a host of previous Republicans now staunchly and shamelessly defend Biden no matter what... and are trying to change the past and claim they never said what is clearly on record. 1984 ain't in it.

216 Someone needs to look into Louisiana's nursing home numbers as well. 40% of the state's deaths were in nursing homes. The state stopped reporting nursing home numbers weeks ago, then started reporting them again this past week with no good explanation, possibly to keep people from asking questions as the death toll skyrocketed. Was the break in nursing home death reporting an attempt to stall, to give the administration time to hide its tracks? John Bel Edwards has some explaining to do. He was wetting the bed just like Cuomo and De Wine back in early April, talking about 30K dead in Louisiana, panicking that the state would run out of hospital beds and ventilators. Very possible he ordered a code red on the nursning homes. What did he order and when did he order it?

Helen Mirren runs rings around Meryl Streep in acting.

Pick any Streep movie and picture Mirren in her role. Pick any Mirren movie and picture Streep in her role. There's no contest.

I'll give any movie with Mirren in it a watch. I cannot say the same for Streep. Streep is the Robert DeNiro of actresses.

232 With actors/actresses and some athletes, especially olympians, I'm interested in the nature/nurture questions. What I mean: Angelina, seems she could have become an actress even if raised by wolves. But for instance, Drew Barrymore, how much of her success is due to her DNA, and how much is due to her family knowing how to guide her to stardom?

Or some olympians, they are amazing athletically, but also, I have noticed quite a few that had olympian parents. And I wonder if part of them making it, was their folks pushing them and telling them they could do it. And I suppose knowing about proper training and coaching and mindset. Where maybe "normal" families lack that knowledge?
Posted by: MikeM at May 20, 2020 11:34 AM (RW3Jw)


I think if you have a nature/nurture slider, those questions are quite interesting, when it comes to things like athletics. I mean, we might THINK that's mostly genetics, but yeah, having supportive parents and coaches who help a kid develop good training skills, that's crucial too.

But with acting, I'd say it's almost all genetics. Both in sense of what God gave them, and in who their parents are.

Why?

Because it takes almost no talent to act. I'm not trying to be cruel here, it's just not that difficult a craft to master. They want to make it seem like it is, but it's not. Really. The difference in quality between a top flight actor and some kid who gets nominated for an Oscar, is marginal.

Tatum O'Neal, for example, in Bad News Bears probably outacted anything her dad ever did. And yet, she never would have been there, if not for her dad.

And then she showed up in a low cut top... traipsing around like the queen of the trailer park.
Oh my, did she make an impression.
Can she act? Hell if I know.

In a previous generation, much the same thing was noted about Janet Leigh. (the blonde victim in Psycho, as well as many other movies) No one ever claimed she was actually very good, but she was quite pretty, and directors such as Alfred Hitchcock noted that as opposed to most actors and actresses, she was very easy to work with and always did what the Director told her to do without asking any questions. Not surprisingly, Directors loved that about her.

Looks like this person never even tried to brake. Car literally bounced off the tree. Street was lined with emergency vehicles. My house is set way back from the street so don;t really know what happened to the driver as it was late and dark.

And I love her in the Red movies, not that this requires great acting.

Which reminds me, Tatiani Maslany is a fabulous actress (she played the younger Mirren character in "Woman in Gold"). Maslany played clones in "Orphan Black" and had such a subtle yet familiar set of expressions and mannerisms for each clone that she could pull off playing one clone pretending to another convincingly. She should have gotten the Emmy every year for that show.

Meanwhile, Meryl Streep has the same mannerisms and expressions (her own, I imagine) for each character she plays because all she does is accents.

Do you mean "Make 'Em Laugh?" IMO, that's one of the worst parts of the movie. O'Connor's not funny, he's exhausting. The movie starts out with him and Kelly as itinerant vaudevillians, and that number explains why they never got god billing - O'Connor just gets more and more frantic, beating you over the head with slapstick. It's as if he's a comedian dying in front of an audience and keeps cranking up to 11 in order to get a reaction from them. It's just awful.

And Kelly is at his self-indulgent worst in the ballet at the end of the movie.

300 My Kung-flu story, the short version:

Yesterday I got the results back from a blood test for Covid-19 antibodies.

It turns out I have already recovered from it, and I didn't even know I had been infected. The only symptoms I had were chills and mild muscle aches, which lasted about two days.

I asked my doctor explicitly, "Am I a risk to other people?"

He answered "You are not. These results mean you were previously infected, and should be immune."

It's the common story of directors who work with children. They're notoriously hard to control. One of the big rules in Hollywood is never work with kids or animals.

One of the most celebrated child performances of the last few years was in Beasts of the Southern Wild, and it was extremely obvious to me that the entire performance was built out of half second to 3 second moments captured after hours of cajoling.

Yeah, I read that, too.

It's also why I think Episode 1 was Lucas' efforts to become a "serious" director. He had been working in movies as a producer for decades. He knew the stuff about children performers being difficult, and he wrote Anakin as a child. That was him saying, "I can make great cinema because I'm a great director."

He failed, of course.

Not saying they should necessarily, but I do think that's more because directors don't know how to deal with kids.

You have to push adults to give you the performance you want. It's probably more accurate to say you'd have to pull it out of you kid actors.

David Lynch is famous for being pretty much universally loved by his actors. He confounds them sometimes, in NOT giving them direction, but then he praises them all up and down their pretty egos, and sometimes when they're done doing it over and over and over again, the actors have no idea why.

380 367 David Lynch is famous for being pretty much universally loved by his actors. He confounds them sometimes, in NOT giving them direction, but then he praises them all up and down their pretty egos, and sometimes when they're done doing it over and over and over again, the actors have no idea why. But they still love him anyway.

Many of the more recent and popular horror flicks have a habit of showing their main characters going through hell, sometimes literally, and near the end, when it seems like they're going to somehow make it, the movie pulls the rug out from under them, and they perish in horrible ways.

It's the way the kids like it these days, I guess.

If the formula was: Good guy encounters bad guy, who does bad things, but manages to, when things look their bleakest, to use some redeeming quality to overcome evil, and win.

Now the formula is: Good guy fights evil/bad, somehow seems to manage to pull it out in the end, but NO! There's evil, and he crushes the good guy, the end.

Says something about the warped world we live in these days, I believe.

So they can be our new trading partners!

While Russia, who is NOT the Soviet Union any longer, and are not Communists anymore, are the defacto largest evil threat in the world! Even though they have not directly killed Americans, like many others have?

It's the way the kids like it these days, I guess.

If the formula was: Good guy encounters bad guy, who does bad things, but manages to, when things look their bleakest, to use some redeeming quality to overcome evil, and win.

Now the formula is: Good guy fights evil/bad, somehow seems to manage to pull it out in the end, but NO! There's evil, and he crushes the good guy, the end.

Says something about the warped world we live in these days, I believe.

I don't know that sounds kind of standard for a lot of horror movies. I don't think night of the living dead ended on a happy note.

Now the slasher movies with their tropes like if you have sex you die and the final girl stuff tend to wind up with the good guy prevails. But usually also the bad guy survives to come back in a sequel.

There's a young actress who was in a few movies, and had a part in the HBO show, Boardwalk Empire.

She's quite good, and does a terrific job in the show.

Well, fast forward a few years, and it turns out she has a Youtube channel! Someone I like had recommended her as an alternative to crappy female "comedians" on Youtube, and her channel is full of whacky, weird, sometimes juveline (she's only 16-17 now) stuff, but she's got an appeal.

Then she disappeared for a while. When she came back, she announced she'd spent time in a mental hospital, and then cheerfully explains she's been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder.

Yeah, that's not what you got, hon.

She's got a difficult life ahead of her.

A Chantal Akerman film that the critics decided to ignore "Window Shopping" has much better music and I actually care about the characters. Probably the only film I can stand by Akerman.
