Bob’s Friday Festival of Random Unrelated Topics including A Few Perfect Movies for Halloween Night, A New Ringo Record, Some Snide Remarks, a Potpourri of Well Thought Out Personal Opinions and Meaningless Deep ‘Not For Everyone’ Humorous Musings, and a heartfelt Thanksgiving Message to one and all

As sure as Springsteen has had some work done, Fridays are a mainstay when it comes to your week, and is known in certain parts of Canada and Rhode Island as the Gateway to The Weekend, or “The Day Before Saturday”.

In that respect it is the single most important day of the week, and is as well-loved as Monday’s are vehemently loathed.

“Loathe Not, Thy Friday, For It Is The Day Of Relief. The Day of Rejoicing. The Day You Have Worked Towards All Week. A Day of Respite and Rest. A Day of Joints Shots Netflix and Chill for Tomorrow You Either Have to Mow the Lawn or Shovel Snow You Poor Bastard” – Saint Daryl … Patron Saint of Stealing 3rd and Inspirational Gibberish

Let’s get the Halloween Movies out of the way first ….

SURE TO SCARE YOUR DATE INTO YOUR ARMS

This list contains no Torture Porn (Saw, Hostel, etc), No Traditional Slasher Movies (Freddie, Jason, Ghostface, Chucky, etc), No Broadway Adaptations (Cats, Phantom of the Opera, Come From Away, Rent, Hamilton, Oklahoma, etc), and No Hammer or Universal Monster Movies, …and lastly, no possessed dolls, children, dogs, monkeys, statuettes, chickens, cars, grandmothers, cookie jars, or Rabbis.

SOME CLIPS MAY CONTAIN DISTURBING IMAGES RESULTING IN YOU OR YOUR GUESTS SHOUTING “MOMMY” OR MAKING A BOOM-BOOM

Are you ready …? Here we go ….

Along with the movies, there will be some suggestions for what you should have available for snacks, drinks, and wardrobe choices, plus a few reminders to check the doors, windows, and under the beds.

Especially under the beds.

…and you might want to look in the toilet before you sit down on it ….

DREAMCATCHER

Stephen King novels rarely come close to being captured on film, but sometimes the horror therein makes it to the screen with giddy delight. That is the case here.

This is one of the most skin crawling, jaw dropping scenes ever realized in a movie, and it is one that deserves a Will Smith “Hell, NO!” at the top of your lungs, shouted an octave higher than you thought possible. A schoolgirl yelp that will be remembered by whoever is there and used to taunt you for the rest of your life.

SNACKS – Anything that won’t stain or that you are not likely to choke on.

DRINKS – Tequila, tequila, tequila.

WARDROBE – Have an extra pair of underwear handy.

DUMPLINGS

The less you know about this movie, the better.

Seriously.

You don’t want to know.

SNACKS – Anything except dumplings, pot stickers, or perogies.

DRINK – Stick with the tequila.

=0=

TEETH

Here’s the Whole Movie –

If you think your relationship is moving too fast, this movie will slow it down to a crawl.

Boys, this should help you think long and hard about deflowering your lovely young girlfriend, and Girls, this will deflate an unwanted boner quicker than a Father with a shotgun.

SNACKS – You won’t have much of an appetite during this one.

DRINKS – Better make sure you have another bottle of tequila.

WARDROBE – Keep your pants on.

Ringo, who doesn’t look a day older than 35, and Paul McCartney who is looking more and more like Droopy Dog, decided to record a John Lennon song together for Ringo’s latest CD …so they did …because, as Ex-Beatles, they can pretty much do whatever the hell they want.

Surprisingly recruiting Joe Walsh for the guitar parts, Ringo drums, Paul Basses, and they duet on a sweet Lennon Music Hall-ish ditty that even your mother would love if your mother were still alive, which if she is, she will love this, just like I said.

Fortunately, this is not a remix, re-master, or re-release of a song you have heard millions of times, so it does have that going for it, although there are 3 or 4 different versions of Lennon’s original demo of this tune, but THIS recording (wait for it) is …a BRAND NEW track from one half of a band we all wish were still together and writing and recording new material so we wouldn’t have to keep buying the existing catalogue over and over and over again.

DEETS

Here’s Toronto’s own Alan Cross grilling Ringo about his latest LP and new book, for Q107.

Biggest reveal …Ringo can eat soup equally well with either his left or right hand.

Alan manages to name check hipster delight ‘Happy Mondays’, and Ringo continues to not look a day over 35.

Besides Joe Walsh, Ringo, and McCartney, you will hear Dave Stewart, Benmont Tench, Steve Lukather, Nathan East, Richard Page, Warren Ham, Windy Wagner, Kari Kimmel, Edgar Winter and other fine musicians on ‘What’s My Name’, the title song of which, written by Men At Work’s Colin Hay.

Saw “Joker”

Now waiting for Ingmar Bergman’s “Batman”.

Have a safe, joyous, healthy, kale-free, Thanksgiving.

I will be sitting at the Indigenous table with the good people who believe in The Earth and The Animals, and who embrace and support a life lived with respect to all living creatures, the land, the water, and the air.

To all Native North Americans, thank you and please forgive us.

And to all of us Immigrants …

…and most importantly ….

  2. Doug Thompson Says:

    Bob, it’s not hard to recruit Joe Walsh for your album if your name is Ringo Starr. Joe is Ringo’s brother-in-law married to Barbara Bach’s sister.
