No End(urance) In Sight

Tidal X 2017
Barclays Center
October 17th

Tidal X 2017 was the show to end all shows!!  It’s true, cause it went on for SIX HOURS hours, and if you were at all 6 hours, you probably couldn’t sit through another show ever again!  We only lasted 4 out of those 6 hours, but what we saw was mammoth, and well worth the hourage!

OK, so we missed out big time on seeing Stevie, and Jay and Jenny, but forgive us, and I had to forgive myself – it was a school night!

Not sure how everything ran on so long  (besides having 12389129391293 performers) – the show was well-oiled, going quickly from act to act, but it somehow was grander than the Tidal X show we caught last year that ran a measly 4 hours.  But what we DID learn from last year’s show was that you had to be there right from the start – as the event always starts with a bang(er).  Last year was Robin Thicke, and this year jumped off with Luis Fonsi of ‘Despacito’ fame.  Sadly for him, the arena was maybe a 1/6th full, and sadly for those who weren’t there, as they missed the song of the summer live.  And sadly for those of us who were there, as he somehow didn’t sing the hit with his collaborator Daddy Yankee, who appeared later on in the evening.  Personally, I think they should have saved Fonsi and the song for later in the show, and had they done it then and with Daddy Y and a full crowd – the place would have explotó!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Besides the big names who showed flash & a$$ (4/5th of Fifth Harmony, Iggy Azalea, Fat Joe + Remy Ma, and Chris Brown, a solid dancer, but still a giant a$$hole who the world should never forgive for what he did to Rihanna), the show excelled on the backs of the little people – the lesser known artists thrust onto a giant stage that they may have never been on before.  Stand out performances included Victory, Chloe X Halle, Mr Eazi, Kranium and Jessie Reyez, who methinks made the mostest of her time in the spotlight over anyone elses!

shine on all you newbies and oldbies!  and on with Tidal X 2018!  just please, if you want to go 6 hours, make it on a Saturday, and start at 4pm.  thanks.  signed, old man in the see

Betty Furness and Stanley Morner (aka Dennis Morgan) rehearsing a love scene with masks on their mouths. Antiseptic masks were used against the dangers of the flu by actors during the rehearsing of love scenes. Of course, these masks were taken off when the camera was rolling. photos dated October 16, 1937, most likely on the set of Mama Steps Out

Piglet It Be

Goodbye Christopher Robin
Wiping The Pooh, And Back The Tears
Official Site | Trailer & Mo
PG | 107 min

Oh great, another one of those Finding NeverlandSaving Mr Banks-type movies where we discover the truth behind the (family) pain and (monetary) gain that birthed a beloved childhood literary classic (that eventually became an animated Disney classic)!

And for awhile, that’s what Goodbye Christopher Robin felt like – a by the numbers tale of how Pooh got Winned in Hundred Acre Wood

BUT, despite that, and despite not super-loving an over-accented and not so fun Margot Robbie, I eventually softened on the tale, and by the end, I was so soft, I was dripping wet in my own tears.

Yes, I was crying cause Domhnall Gleeson‘s forehead make-up as old man A. A. Milne was more awful than most of these jobs (not really), but I also was crying cause Kelly Macdonald makes some of the best glum and saddened faces in the bidness, but also cause I cried for Christopher Robin!  A.A.’s real son who’s playfulness and imagination was his inspiration that launched a zillion books, and when success came they turned their son into a puppet of profit!!

HOW DARE YOU PARENTS?????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Poor Christopher Robin. 

FREE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN!!!!

And oh man, the two peeps that played CR are fcuking amazing.  Will Tilston (cast by the same person who cast Danny Radcliffe as Harry Potter) does most of the heavy lifting in this one.  The child actor is beyond precious.  When you look up the word ‘moppet’ in a dictionary, either one of these pictures should be there

THAT FCUKING KID IS SO ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And with limited screen-time, the more adult Chris Robz done up by Alex Lawther (who also played young Alan Turing in The Imitation Game), puts an exclamation mark on the proceedings that still has me exclaiming FREE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN!!!

Also, the biggest take away from this movie that I learned [spoiler alert] is that Winnie the Pooh IS real, and lives at the NYPL!!!

Also, that the kid’s name is ‘Christopher Robin’, not ‘Christopher Robbins’, which I think I thought that it was for like 9ever

Movies – where learning and enjoyment sometimes go hand-in-hand!
