cinema à la carte                                 

I was, I think, 2-3 years-old when my recently widowed Mom came home
early from work and took me to see, for some mysterious reason, a WWI war movie.  Maybe to experience something of what my late dad had experience at the Bulge?   I remember this because I later had my first ever nightmare. In the dream there were looped visions of great, huge, sepia toned balloons rolling around in sepia colored mud. It recurred several times, and I never associated it with the movie.

 It wasn't until 40 years later, or so, that I was watching an old WWI war movie and BANG.  There was my nightmare.  The giant bubbles were great boxy tanks rolling over trenches.  Mud and dirt and smoke.  I've later tried to find that movie again,  but no. Anyway, I was a WWII guy with little interest in the Great War.  It's only recently that I, and it seems the world, have developed a fascination for The Great War.  This first episode of the  BBC's OUR WORLD WAR may be the best.  Certainly there are none more innovative.  On Netflix and others.

Writing in Righteous Indignation, Breitbart noted that, “the left doesn’t win its battles in debate. It doesn’t have to. In the 21st century, media is everything. The left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media. The left is the media and narrative is everything.”
I am moved to tears every time I re-watch The Big Parade. Pretty good for silent movie making.
As Kaiser Wilhelm said: "La Guerre, Fraiche et Joyeuse!"
Then came the massacres and crucifixions and both German and Allied armies were ready for revolt...
Funny, twenty years later they were ready to start all over again...
And they still blame us for not jumping in feet first as they did both times. Our sin was waiting until we were provoked and also did a little profiteering before getting involved but hey, what's a guy gonna do?
In the middle of it now, Rodge.

When in Kansas City, the WWI museum is a must stop if you have a couple-three hours.
