I have a reason for being Late today and that is because we saw the Warriors battle the Trailblazers at Oracle Arena in Oakland as well as the Movie, ‘Superman vs. Batman- Dawn of Justice’—GREAT Stuff!

SPRING SESSION 2016

BLOGPOST #1,989 AT THE AICP-END


Yesterday was a double whammy—we saw the Warriors beat the Trailblazers in Oakland and then saw Superman vs. Batman
Bakersfield, CA, 05-02-2016 Monday: I am sorry for being late today but hey, I have a good reason.  My wife and I went north to Oakland, California, yesterday to watch the Golden State Warriors play the Portland Trailblazers at the Oracle Arena.  I have mentioned before that I am a fan of both the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Indiana Pacers.  However, one of the purveyors gave my wife and I tickets so we could watch the championship Warriors in action against the stumbling Trailblazers and I must say it was a hell of a game. 

My hope is that the Cavaliers will get a repeat appearance in the NBA Finals this year against the Warriors.   My hope the Cavs are going to deliver a knockout blow to Stephen Curry—should he win clearance to play, that is—and the rest of the team, a team that embarrassed LeBron James and the Cavs last June.  I would love to see the Cavs finally clear the BIG HUMP and to win a championship ring as well as seeing LeBron do it with his hometown team. 
Anyhow, the trip up the valley was time-consuming as it always is, traffic was thick on the road going up and coming back down so you can imagine my fatigue in making a turnaround trip such as Bakersfield to Oakland and Oakland to Bakersfield in one day. 
However, when we arrived home, after we had dinner, we decided that why not go to a movie and see something that would help us unwind and be ready to hit the sack when we went home.  We went and saw, “Batman vs. Superman- Dawn of Justice,” or whatever the title is, and I must say I went there with some trepidation as I have heard varying reviews.   


Let me put any negative reviews to rest.  The movie was excellent, a bit long sure, but the story was involved and it took time to tell as several themes ran through the movie.  We not only saw Batman and Superman, we also got a glimpse of Aqua Man and Wonder Woman put in an appearance, too.  I think we saw the foundational building blocks of what would eventually become the Justice League of America, sort of the original Avengers as DC Comics is to Marvel. 
The funny thing is, I was telling my oldest son, Mark, and his family before we went to the movies that some of the heroes from DC Comics do not seem to translate as well over to the modern cinema as have the Marvel Superheroes and villains.  Prior to watching the show, I mentioned that I did not see how it would be possible to carry Aqua Man over to the silver screen because of the image of the OLD hero dressed in some really funky garb. 
I see the lord of the oceans sort of as how I see Robin of Batman fame, a character that just does not carry over into the modern view and who has fallen by the wayside since the first attempt or two to put the character into a modern movie.
Some of these characters make me think of some of the Disney has-been characters, such as ‘Gabby Goose,” “Clarabelle the Cow,” and some others who had a shot in early cartoons but over time fell by the side of the road as the entertainment empire settled on Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto, and Goofy.  Why they drop some mainstay characters is beyond me—your simple chef host—as the old cartoons and the comics are classics as they featured a larger cast of characters.  
Besides, discovering older characters is what makes comic book collecting such a noble enterprise, as there is so much lost in the past that the modern generations never knew existed.
As far as the movie, “Batman vs. Superman” goes, it was a fine film, and the acting was great as were the special effects.  We are at a point where we do not know when we see reality as opposed to CGI effects as the seams are so invisible that one has to look hard to see them.  We once thought the film, “Avatar,” was the pinnacle of moviemaking whereas now, a few short years later, things have come so far, I hope I am still alive in 20 years so I can see where we are at then. 
Please, if you have not yet seen the movie, you need to go to the theaters and see it, it is a great film and Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill put in stellar performances.  I was very impressed and ended the movie with a big tired—but happy—smile on my face.  The climactic battle was magnificent and once again, one has to ponder how the heck Gotham can rebuild after so many problems hitting the city. 
Shoot, in the movies, New York City or its surrogates suffer so much destruction that one would think, “You know, it might be better to let the city go rather than rebuild it for the next superhero destruction.” 
Ah, well, it was a great film and your kids and grandkids are going to enjoy it just as will all of you, especially those like me who grew up reading the comic books and enjoying the characters.  Add to that the fact that we have come so far in cinematography as well as how well the moviemakers shot the film; one derives much information from a few short stills or brief images.  My hat is off the filmmakers and the actors. 
I should be back at my normal time tomorrow but folks, we will talk politics as well as mess we saw on May Day with commies across the nation and world marching and causing all sorts of trouble for law enforcement and business owners.  We need to find a way to stop this crap before our nation changes irrevocably forever. 
See you tomorrow.

MORE TO COME FROM THE ROLLING STONES



MONDAY, MAY 02, 2016
In 1979, the Rolling Stones released another stellar compilation album, one intended for longtime fans as well as new listeners.  “Time Waits for No One)” contained all of the classic tunes all in one place.  The title tune refers to one of the greatest Stones songs the band ever recorded, from the “It’s Only Rock-and-Roll” album, featuring a tour d’ force of some of the best guitar work Mick Taylor ever recorded with the band.  If you have not had the opportunity to introduce their music to your ears then this is a good way in which to do it.  Please, use our link and redirect your browser to Amazon.com—the world’s greatest online marketplace!—where you can get it in the format, the condition, and the price that is best for you; we thank you for your patronage.
