GAINZZZ and Stronk Wimmenzzz

photoshopcourses.jpg

Last week I posted the trailer for Not Okay, a Hulu movie about a girl who fakes a fabulous trip to Paris for social media clout, but gets into a jam when there's a terrorist attack in Paris when she's supposed to be there. She continues the deception and digs an even deeper hole for herself.

First of all, I don't recommend it. It has some actual laugh-out-loud moments, but there aren't many of them, and the movie drags as it attempts to be a not very convincing dramedy. It feels like it's really meant to be a funny forty minute short feature, but you can't sell a forty minute short feature, so they added some not so dramatic dramatic material and tried to make a movie out of it.

Second of all: This dramatic material includes some hardcore anti-gun crusading in the middle section. The movie basically takes a time out from its basic premise and becomes an afterschool special about the Parkland school shooting for a solid 30, 35 minutes, complete with young female minority messiah figure who delivers, yes, Slam Poetry exhortations (slam poetry? Is it 1993? Are we going to Def Jam later?) to politicians and gun manufacturers to stop killing us all with their greed and cowardice and White Privilege. (The last was implied.)

Third: I often like what I've heard called "social horror," stuff like the British The Office where the main character is so obtuse or so villainous that you cringe and even cover your eyes, but most people don't, and the main character here is a really narcissistic "Zillennial" c-word, three-quarters of the way to a full-on villain. Even if it the movie didn't sandbag you with a Democrat National Convention campaign film in the middle, a lot of people wouldn't be able to stomach the main character.

So: I have to take back my "Is This Something?" semi-recommendation.

And I also want to talk about this: The Trigger Warning that ran before the movie.

Now, I'm telling people that if you don't like cringe comedy, you shouldn't see this, because it's cringe comedy. That's not a trigger warning; that's telling you what kind of movie this is so you can decide if it's for you.

But Hulu ran an actual Trigger Warning to let audiences know that the film features an... "Unlikable Female Protagonist."

A Trigger Warning to let snowflakes know that a female character in the movie was presented in less that 100% validated, 100% you-go-girl, Yass-Slay-Kween terms.

unlikablefmaleprotagonist.jpg

The filmmakers explain that "part of the audience" seemed "genuinely upset" that a female character was being portrayed as less than ideal, and so wanted to "poke at that a little."

So it's kind of a trigger warning, and kind of mockery of people who need a trigger warning for a movie with an unlikable female character.

So that's how Stronk today's Stronk Empowered Women are: They're so Stronk and Empowered, they need a Trigger Warning to let them know when they're about to watch a movie in which a woman will be depicted as not so Stronk and not so Empowered.

I feel so bad for the normal women, being constantly embarrassed and humiliated by the antics and hysterias of these flakes, fruitcakes, and straight-up lunatics.

So, because I don't think many of you will see this, I'm going to spoil the first joke of the movie, which comes within sixty seconds. The "Unlikable Female Protagonist" is being criticized for an unsolicited article she submitted to a Vice-style magazine she works at. The editor tells her it's "offensive," because the article lists the reasons this brat is sad, and among those reasons is "because I missed 9/11."

"I was on a cruise with my parents," the girl explains. "I read 9/11 was one of the most formative bonding experiences of my generation, but I was on a cruise--"

"When attempting to connect with an audience," the editor instructs her, "we generally do not discuss our FOMO about 9/11."

FOMO = Fear of Missing Out.

And it has another moment that is humorously dark. She attempts to write about how the Paris bombings affected her. But she has no idea how they affected her, because she wasn't in Paris at all. She's a liar. So to do research on how a tragedy might affect people, she... joins a terrorism/tragedy survivor support group to crib notes about survivors' experiences so she can lift their emotions and thoughts and stick them into her article as her own experiences in Paris.

So yeah, the writer (a woman) does have some good gags and sociopathic notions in there.

And then it just turns into David Hogg's term paper for 30 screenplay pages.

As far as my own GAINZZZ: I finally have some GAINZZZ.

I started walking and doing some light calisthenics again -- light -- and I went into semi-fasting/strict dieting mode. I've dropped six pounds of fat over the past two or three weeks.

Eh, it's a start.

This video from What I've Learned happened to drop while I was in the first week of semi-fasting.

I don't think I'd recommend a long fast to people any more. Maybe that's too dangerous. But short fasts of up to three days seem pretty safe.

Just get lots of water and electrolytes.

And walking is very underrated. It pushes my own ketosis from low levels up to medium or high levels. It's a big impact for such a minor investment of effort. (Though I do walk for an hour, so there is a time commitment.)

So what about you? What about yo' GAINZZZ?

Any MOVIEZZZ? Did you get burned in the last week like me, watching some woke messaging?

Any BOOKZZZ? PROJEXXX? PLANZZZ?

29 Rowing is going well. I had started before the stress test, but have continued after. The tennis elbow twanged at me when doing free weights though, so those have been left on the shelf for now.

The plan right now is not to go for the insane amounts of time I used to be able to do before I had a job. Counterproductive. Going to keep it to 30mins max and just ratchet up the resistance (which on the rower means letting more air into the flywheel.)

Finished the Terminal List by only watching it during working out (with subtitles as the rowing machine is not quiet enough.) Need to find something else to watch while working out. I found this really helps. Any suggestions?

They all made it fine but a girl who was in their plane snapped an ankle on landing.
Posted by: JackStraw

Happened to me on my first static line jump. However, the landing was my fault as I flared my parachute a bit early and came down too hard the last 30'. My didn't snap my ankle though, just a mild sprain. I hobbled around campus for a week or so on crutches and had a great explanation. Two civilian static line jumps and 5 military jumps. I'll never do another one again even though I enjoyed all 7 (other than landing #1). There is no drug I've done that has anything on staring at the ground 3,000 feet below and pushing yourself out of a plane knowing you can "just say no". And then being in mid-air free-falling even a short distance with static line -- I've had more than enough death-mocking thrill of that sort.

52 Ace, and others with chronic insomnia, I stumbled onto something that has helped me (and I found out others do it), if not already aware: antihistamines.

I was taking Benadryl recently for allergies, especially after waking in the middle of the night, and realized the drowsiness helped me fall back asleep.

I researched it, and you cannot develop a tolerance to antihistamines -- so no worry about having to take more and more over time for the same effectiveness.

Anyway, I went to Costco to try and find some more and they stopped selling it, marketing instead their own Kirkland brand with something like 600 pills in a bottle and inexpensive.

So now when I wake up in the middle of night, I just take one of those and it has helped (I'd say only one out of four times I can't fall back asleep). I mentioned this to others, and they said they keep a bottle on their nightstand for this very reason. [Even though I'm only 29, this is the first I'd ever heard of using it as a sleep aid.]

58 The funny thing is, if it was written by someone who wasn't a doctrinaire wokist, that movie could have been a hilarious satire. If she went all anti-gun, it could be done and woven in such that it connects with her mounds of personal craptasticness in a massive indictment of the sort of shallow, self-serving people who try to touch off these crusades, and how it's more out of self-aggrandizement than out of any real and actual concern for other human beings.

But, alas. Missed opportunity.

98 This movie sounds like it was inspired by a true story, from a book published last year called 'La Mythomane du Bataclan', by Alexandre Kauffmann. There was this woman named Florence, who went by the online handle FloKitty, who claimed to be a friend of someone seriously injured in a terrorist attack at the Bataclan nightclub in Paris in 2015. She also claimed elsewhere that she had been personally present at the attack, and got compensation from the French government for her trauma. Actually, she was nowhere near the attack, but she was so convincing she insinuated herself into a victims' support group and became one of the key members. It's a bizarre story - she created an entire false biography, and even assumed different personalities online who "talked" with unsuspecting fellow victims. It was all discovered eventually, she was charged with fraud and went to prison for a short time. I highly recommend it, for anyone who can read French. I'd translate it myself if I knew anyone in publishing, because it's almost like a mystery story, as people start slowing figuring out something is not right about this woman.

Well yes Benedryl is typically suggested by doctors before actually prescribing sleeping drugs. I had problems sleeping after surgery and it worked wonders, just was not recommended for my condition.

With all the heat I've observed something interesting: up to about 90 degrees I am fine. But it quickly hits me over that. Same ride. Same distance. At 89F I average 135bpm and come back feeling fine. At 93F I average 145bpm and come back wanting to pass out. (180bpm is my absolute max). I guess your body just can't cool off at that temp.

127 Ace I lost 100 lbs over a year (2021) by almost completely cutting out carbs, and moderate exercise (I walked about 3-4 miles everyday). I gave up carbs in late Feb and weighed 288 at the time (I'm 6'3). By the end of April I was down to 235. I bottomed out at 188, lower than I really wanted, but have been a steady 200 ever since. I've never lost weight so fast in my life, and I don't know how I did it, but I did have some serious personal stuff going on at the time, too. I never fasted I just ate basically nothing but meat and vegetables. I'd have 10g or less of carb most days..I'm 50 years old.

I had heard people having success with low carb diets but had never managed to withstand the cravings when I tried to reduce them, but not give them up practically entirely. When I got totally off carbs it was much easier than trying reducing.

Now I eat carbs moderately but still heavy on meat and veg.

Anyway proud of you thanks for the years of insightful commentary and laughs. Looongtime lurker.

----------

There are literally no, or relatively little, consequences to destructive, harmful, and or perverse behaviors now -- especially in urban environments, and especially if you're one of the "oppressed?"

As was mentioned earlier today, humans are driven purely by incentive and disincentive ... and our society now incentivizes and occasionally celebrates & rewards destructive, harmful, and or perverse behaviors.

175 LOSSEZZZ - Very slowly shedding extra weight, about 15 lbs so far (not a lot, but it goes a long way when you're stumpy). Mostly time-restricted eating and being conscious about carbs. Mostly strength training for exercise, I just hate cardio except for dancing.

I had spiked pretty badly during my husband's illness and after his passing, so I need to get down at least another 15 to get back to weight I was before and between pregnancies. But if I'm honest, even that was a little heavy. Anyway, little steps seems to be working this time.

176 The next predator film is available on Hulu today. Called prey. A stronk Comanche warrior woman is the set up.

The thing is, even the trailer showed that she was trying to be strong and ended up screwing up and almost being mangled by a bear so its sort of flipping that on its head.

If you put aside the question how exactly a Predator with super tech and gargantuan personal strength is in anyway sporting taking on stone age natives, the premise might be cool. It depends a lot on the writing but remember: Arnie didn't beat the Predator by being a big strong he-man. He set up stone age traps in the jungle.

My biggest concern is the white settlers who are in a the brief scenes portrayed as evil rapist oppressors.

Huh. I just last week reverse engineered the pocari formula and looked at all this stuff (mostly the japanese versions, but the US versions are not that different.)

Now I am about to buy: Trisodium citrate, potasium chloride, Ca lactate, Mg chloride, vitamin C and citric acid to make my own.

The ingredients cost pennies per quart and I figure I can turn anything into sports drink. The reason I am doing it is because in Japan they are all switching to half artificial sweeteners, and I hate that crap. All except pocari but they charge double for that.

We walk at the local Senior center where they have a nice pond full of fish, frogs and turtles and we try to feed the turtles turtle food, but the darn fish often gobble it up first. It is nice to see the critters and also the meadows which have cornflowers and various colors of cone flowers which are lovely. I don't know the names of all of the flowers and flowering weeds but it cheers me up to see them.

Son and his dad are watching some long film which takes place over 10 years. It's called "Boyhood" or something like that, I'm hoping that either today or Sunday night we can switch to "Bridge Over The River Kwai" which i don't think I've ever seen, but Alec Guinness was one of my favorite actors and David Lean was a great director.

322 Taylor Kitsch is a great actor.

You only realize this once you've seen him give an interview, in which he comes off as a completely retarded chimpanzee. He can barely speak in complete sentences and when he does, what he says is idiotic.

Then he hits his lines when he's on camera and you think: "Whoa! It's an actual human being with a brain!"

On YouTube there's a video about army rangers versus the Crips and it's about this army sergeant who buys a house in a not so great area in the 80s during the crack epidemic he starts calling the cops on the Crips and the drug houses and they don't like it so he has a barbecue with all his army buddies and the Crips decide to show up and a huge shoot out takes place. Pretty good video

342 The 1940's exercise routine of spending all day doing factory heavy machinery fab work, then going to the gym for an automated massage, did seem to be working pretty well for those ladies...

Now I imagine that the routine isn't quite so effective without the day shift of heaving aluminum castings around, and it does limit one's styling options just a scosh. (Getting your hair caught in a hydraulic stamping machine is bad kids! Don't do that.) But does seem to do the job.

343 332 "I've got six pack abs. Looks like I taped a six pack on my belly."

My favorite version of this is from the grandfather-guardian of a high schooler I taught some years ago:

"Some men have a six-pack. I have a whole keg."

344 With all the heat I've observed something interesting: up to about 90 degrees I am fine. But it quickly hits me over that. Same ride. Same distance. At 89F I average 135bpm and come back feeling fine. At 93F I average 145bpm and come back wanting to pass out. (180bpm is my absolute max). I guess your body just can't cool off at that temp.

My doctor once recommended me a diet book by some proto Keto doctor. It let you eat chocolate - dark chocolate, have several shots a day as curious exceptions to the meat and no carbs standard. Doc, you old fraud, I see what things you don't want to give up.

More likely much of the latter but Nanci's games have made the Chinese want some get even pretty bad, and they have plenty of ways to do it without tossing missiles around...like slowing down all the crap we buy from them because fools think you can deal with commies like businessmen. All triggered by diplomats that think you can spit in nuclear power's eyes without having anything to back it up.
