What Time Is It?

Half past Mohammed?  It is not finger poppin’ time, it is Mecca facing time (MFT).

Yeah…. Right….

From The Only Common Denominator In All Your Failed Relationships Is You Department

Man who received suicide’s heart commits suicide.  Oh, and in the really weird department, he also married the donor’s widow. That is one lady that Mr. Fu bets has at one time in the last day or so thought, “Is it me?”  Poor gal, unless she did them in….

What the Heck?

DIM MAK?  Mr. Fu has issued a holy fire support request.  Where is the holy fire?

Okay…..

Don’t know what they are thinking in Japan, but some store is selling rice bags with pictures of babies faces on them to send to relatives and the like. I guess it might be a Japanese thing that gaijin (and tengu like Mr. Fu and DIM MAK) cannot understand.

What Goes On Here?

Mr. Fu was throwing out a bunch of surplus computer parts, cases, motherboards, some dated stuff.  Some of it was still useful though, especially to the young geeks and nerd in the neighborhood to whom Mr. Fu has contributed generously before.  CLONE RED asked about a particular system, “May I have it?”

“You have had your shot at it for weeks.  Why would you want it now?”

“I want to keep it and get it working, so that one day I can tell my kids, ‘Hah, we had big giant boxes like this for computers!'”

Weird, the apple does not fall far from the tree.

That’s Weird – 20071029

Back to stalking METAPHOR, he watched The Wicker Man (2006).  Bee worshipping matriarchy indeed.   Mr. Fu was flipping channels, caught part of it, and was intrigued enough to look for it in the library.  Only he thought he saw “The Wicker Men” on the cable guide, and was disappointed he could only find The Wicker Man (1973) with Edward Woodward.  THE KAT insisted that Mr. Fu had it wrong, that it was “The Wicker Man” with Nicolas Cage, that we had a copy in the library, and she proceeded to produce it.

Sat down to watch the 1973 version, very interesting.  Ah, Christopher Lee (Lord of the Rings kids)!  Ingrid Pitt (she was in Where Eagles Dare)!  A Hammer-fest!  Interesting ending, not a Hollywood Ending for sure.  Mr. Fu started to watch the making of bit, figuring he would bail early.  Nope, watched the whole thing, the movie they did not want you to see, or so it seemed.  Mr. Fu put it back in the only to discover – The Extended Version (from the vaults of Roger Corman and such).

Now we have to follow up with the 2006 version.  Hmmmm, hopefully it will be better than METAPHOR suggests.  Though Mr. Fu will not hold his breath.
