That's why I said, antifa or not. Just very sad to see what's going on.

I would concede there may be "cells" forming now, in a life-imitates-art type of way.

But in my entire adult life, I had never even heard the phrase prior to 2016.

Not sure how this crazy-train planet gets pulled into the station anymore.



Hey, it's my tiny, little IMDb!

Yes.

Don't get me wrong.  There are absolutely some shitty protesters doing shitty, counterproductive things.

But these cries of "Antifa!" are simply pearl-clutching performance art for potus.  There are no leaders.  No clubhouse.  And DOJ has filed no Antifa cases.

It's just a FOX news fever-dream running b-roll from weeks ago.  Or even from Sarajevo!  (not a joke)

There is, however, a loosely-knit collection of pissed-off people with fireworks and paint cans -- and a few others mixed in, stirring up trouble for reasons of their own.


I believe that ANTIFA orchestrated the war on Christmas.

Still feel the same? I just wish that whole thing would end, antifa or not, I don't think it's helping anyone's cause. I'm all for peaceful protests, just not liking what I'm seeing right now.

Corona positive cases are going up in the EU now. Bizarrely, Sweden seems to be happy that their strategy is now right??? A lot of people there refuse to wear masks. Idiots IMO. However, those who try to push the idea that only Trump supporters don't wear masks are wrong. These people are everywhere. Btw, pretty much everywhere I go now, I would say 99% of people wear masks. Those who don't tend to be female. Even older ones. I haven't figured out a reason for that yet...

In more positive news, I only know two people who have actually got ill with the virus and both of them have now been discharged from the hospital. One of them being 69, overweight and a diabetic, so I think, treatments for the illness have definitely got better.


Every time I encounter someone not wearing a mask I just want to punch them.

Americans have sacrificed for the Spanish Flu, Great Depression, Two World Wars, Korean Wat, Vietnam etc, etc, and effing etc and people think wearing masks is too much a sacrifice???

In my view it is simple is this - if they are right, they had to endure a slight inconvenience that Doctors, nurses, construction workers, coal miners etc etc endure everyday and one that they pay for every Halloween. If they are wrong - they could be causing the death of other people.  

I think I am going to punch them.

Same here. Back in mid-May, I was at a convenience store buying my favorite snack (peanut M&Ms, if you're curious). I'm standing there in my mask, looking down at the red-tape X on the floor, doop-dee-doo, waiting my turn. And suddenly I felt warm breath on the back of my neck. Without even thinking I spun around and shouted "SIX FUCKING FEET." It was a guy and his kid. Probably seven, eight years old. No masks. I didn't feel bad for using such profanity in front of this kid, but I did feel bad for the kid have such a dumb-ass for a parent.

It is literally more difficult and time consuming to get dressed in the morning than it is to protect yourself from the coronavirus. If all you have to do to avoid catching this deadly global virus that has already killed hundreds of thousands of people is wear a mask in public and stand six feet away from one another, then -- all PC aside -- you would have to be a Grade-A god damn moron not to. And there are people who bitch and complain about having to do even that little.

I explained it to my daughter, who I've had to remind several times to wear her mask to work, like this: there are a lot of things in the world that might kill me. I might accidentally be hit by a car. I might have a stroke out of the clear blue. I might accidentally catch a bullet in a drive-by. But one thing I know for a fact I'm not going to die of is the coronavirus. Because I'm not a dumb-ass.

WEAR YOUR MASKS, PEOPLE!

Everything is so surreal right now I don't know what to think. One thing I can tell you from being old enough to remember things half a century ago, in Sweden, but still. Things are changing in a not so good way. You don't remember Antifa before 2016. I don't either, but more sad to me is that I NEVER heard when I lived in Sweden anyone being called racist or a Nazi. In fact, back when I lived there, hating Nazis was something everyone could agree on. Everyone also agreed on racism and especially slavery and black people. It wasn't even a question. Now, things have changed. There are far right groups wearing brown and wearing swastikas marching in the streets!!!!!! WTF!!!!! I'm thinking social media and foreign adversaries playing a role? I don't know, just very sad all around.

Give or take a couple days, its been five months now for most of us being stack at home. Some of us with family and some of us alone. My wife, daughter and I sat around the other day chatting and decided to look at the bright side of this scenario:
- We not only haven't been at each others throats, we've come to really appreciate each others company and thoughts.
- We (mainly my wife) have repainted every room in the house but one.
- We've saved a small fortune in gas.
- My wife's Instagram will hit 1,000 followers today or tomorrow.
- I either run or cycle all but one rest day every week now.
- I'm at my lowest weight since 1985! Damn I'm old.
- My daughter has read 6 books this summer.
- I learned that I can effectively work from home.
- I can make a killer martini, vesper, Manhattan, and pina colada.
- I participated (and I think will place very well) in the 2020 Writers Tournament.
- We got to know our neighbors.

How's about the rest of you? Look at the bright side.

And there's nothing about pies that you ate. And all that yeast dough. Let's not forget I couldn't find any yeast in stores because of you.

I found yeast in the grocery store today. This means weíve turned the corner and everything is going to be okay  

My two boys have been at each otherís throats, but thatís not the lockdownís fault. Itís because they were 6 and 8 when this started, and the only thing thatís changed is now theyíre 7 and 9.


Feature-length scripts:
Who Wants to Be a Princess? (Family)
Glass House (Horror anthology)

Another gem, from Kham.
Quote of the day.  

Bit of drinking going on in your house, John?
And yet, you're at your fighting weight.
Me too! Even with all the baking.

I've certainly learned even though there are a lot of chumps around that there a lot of lovely selfless people around. A couple of weeks into our first lockdown we got a letter in our mailbox from neighbours we'd only ever just waved hello at now and then asking how we were and offering to shop and drop off groceries if we needed them. Restores your faith in humanity when you see the opposite side to every man for himself.

We now have a second wave, due in some part to some moronic security guards getting it on with people in quarantine. It's worse in Melbourne but we may be headed for a second lockdown and mandatory masks. I've taken to wearing a mask now regardless because people got lax here and just don't know the meaning of keeping their distance. If I'm in the grocery queue please backup! Unbelievable.

Just read there's a case of a death from bubonic plague in a village in Mongolia.
And two chook farms just shut down here in Melbourne with birdflu.

Jeepers, what next.
Stay informed, keep your head down, and escape the madness with writing. There's an idea.

Flour and sugar are back in our aisles. Yay!
I notice toilet paper dwindling a bit though cause a second wave is on the horizon. Ugh!

Bit of a difference, 7 and 9, Frank?
