I have the flu, aches, pains, bunged up, and somehow my voice got away from me. I feel miserable, so I’m going to watch a television classic The Day After. Miserable now, I fully expect to be absolutely bummed, while also being incredibly relieved, and happy to go with it in a couple of hours (despite the presence of the beauteous Bibi Besch). Why not join me?
I might even follow that with the classic, and original version of On The Beach.
And hey, just to round out my relief, and happiness that we actually lived through the Cold War, why not finish up with Threads?
These shouldn’t depress, they’re cultural relics of a type of war which so far we have avoided. I find them sort of uplifting because, they show an awareness of the reality of that time in the artistic communities. And an unwillingness to just be quiet about it. I honestly believe they made a difference.
Anyway have a nice Pride Weekend Dublin. And now I go to wish my sinuses would just explode, and get it over with.
