Fahrenheit 9/11

Fahrenheit 911 [DVD]

by Michael Moore [Optimum Releasing]
Price: £3.79 -

Produced, Driected and Starring Michael Moore. Shown on Channel 4, 27th January.
Well I had to watch this didn’t I. I watched Bowling for Columbine and I was shocked by it, and I was expecting to be shocked by this film too. But I wasn’t really – probably because the war was heavily covered by the media already, much of it was already known. The most interesting thing was Bush’s business connections and how much that influenced the running of America. The investigation into that was more compelling than the second half of the film.
Some of it was unnecessary – I felt a lot of time was wasted with things like the OAP who had FBI on his doorstep for talking about the war. (Interesting, yes, but not that important) The sort of things that would go on the Extras on a dvd, but not in the actual film.
The coverage of the soldiers serving in Iraq and the grieving family who lost a son made me angry and sad; but again, nothing I didn’t understand already. However this film is likely to be watched by those in power in America, and if they had chosen to ignore scenes like those in the past, it would hopefully get their attention with this.
It showed most profoundly what a complete idiot President George W Bush is, and it really makes you wonder why anyone at all in America could choose to vote for him again.

mail order dog food review
Yes, this is a blog post about dog food! Natural grain-free food and treats from an online pet shop.

Loki has become the star of the show in several of my YouTube videos. He also commands attention whenever we take him anywhere; we love him to bits, but he can also be a bit embarrassing! He slobbers on everyone; bumps into them; accidentally knocks small children over and even when we meet people who are perfectly fine with all that, he will never take a treat from them. When family buy him expensive treats at Christmas, they’re lucky if they get a sniff. Even at the Pylle Happy Landings dog show, he wouldn’t take the free samples of handmade dog treats offered to him. He just isn’t interested. As a puppy we had to train him with cheap sausages and pieces of cheese – not the easiest of foodstuffs to take about with you. So when PetShop sent me a box of dog goodies to review, I didn’t hold out much hope….
Painting my gong copper
October 27, 2016
You probably won’t find another blog post with the same title as this one! But that’s literally what this post is about. I have childhood memories of a place called Foxlease in the New Forest where we’d sometimes have a little holiday. It was something to do with the fact that my Mum was a Guide leader. Anyway, it was a big old stately home and they had a huge dinner gong to tell everyone staying there that dinner was ready. Every evening they would take in turns letting the kids bang the gong. It never was my turn….
review of things are what you make of them by adam j. kurtz
A review of ‘Things are what you make of them’ – Life advice for Creatives by Adam J. Kurtz
March 21, 2018
Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….
