No doubt, we’re in deep.https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/
Our throats so tight, we can’t breathe.https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/
The next dramafix is all we need.https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

Whoa, we like to think that we’re immune to the stuff, oh yeah.https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/
Closer to the truth to say we can’t get enough.https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

We’re gonna have to face it, https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/we’re addicted to dramalove.https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

We see the signs, but we can’t read (between the lines).https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/
We’re running at a different speed…https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

Whoa, we like to think that we’re immune to the stuff, oh yeah.https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

Closer to the truth, we can’t get enough. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

Gonna have to face it, we’re addicted to dramalove.https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

Picture that with Robert Palmer and a bunch of scantily-clad Hashtags gyrating behind him. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

Drama is amazing for books, movies, TV shows (also the only place we should see giant shoulder pads), especially soap operas (daytime or prime time)… https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

but it shouldn’t be the dish-of-the-day in politics and the news. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

We’re acting like we’re in the throes of teen angst…forever. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

Drama distracts us from people stealing: power, money, rights, hopes, dreams, sanity, democracy itself. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

It keeps us looking past the smoke and mirrors, the fluffy and the oh-so shallow. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

We see drama everywhere, except behind the curtain where the wizard of awwws is pulling all the levers, pushing all the buttons. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

While we’re fighting, blaming, quibbling, crying, decrying, they’re all, ‘Eat, Sleep, Rule The Galaxy, Repeat’.https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” ~Maya Angelou.  https://yadadarcyyada.com/2019/07/29/eat-sleep-rule-the-galaxy-repeat/

Come on, America, Canada, Britain, Europe, China, Russia, and the whole wide world, we know better, we should do better.

JUST ONE MORE THING…COLUMBO

columbo1I loved this show as a child. I waited for that moment when the rumpled, allegedly forgetful detective turned back to the suspect who thought they’d gotten away with it. Columbo would say something like: “Just one more thing” or “There’s something that bothers me” or “Just one more question” or “Just a few loose ends to tie up”. Then you knew and the suspect knew, they were caught. The classic false exit ending.

Columbo was one of the best inverted detective format shows ever. No whodunit. You knew who did it, in fact many times in Columbo we saw not only who did it, but how they did it. The problem was proving they did it. Catching them.

Columbo was on from 1968-2003 (with some time off here and there). Well-known for his crummy looking trench coat, his meandering, overly chatty style and his keen eye for detail, he was unusual and fun to watch.

In between telling the suspects personal details, some of which were actually true, asking them how much they paid for their shoes, asking about things for his wife (anyone remember the best-forgotten spinoff Mrs. Columbo starring Kate Mulgrew?), looking around their homes, cars, etc. he always found the clues that caught the bad guys.

Peter Falk wasn’t the only actor to play Columbo, but he was certainly the favourite. His seemingly absent-minded portrayal of Lt. Frank Columbo was brilliant and unforgettable.

I loved Peter Falk in so many things, especially Murder By Death, The Princess Bride, and the trilogy of Christmas movies where he played a quirky angel named Max, but for me and most people he will forever be Columbo.

Oh, uh, just one more thing…columbo2

SUPERNATURAL IMPALA

Two hot guys in a hot car fighting supernatural elements.

Toss in some angels, demons, monsters, apocalyptic horsemen, ghosts, etc. well, what’s not to love?

It’s fast-paced, but with kinda meaningful messages. Created by Eric Kripke  we got our first taste of Sam and Dean Winchester in 2005 and it just keeps going, Season 9 is about to start, thank you.  Image                             

Jared Padalecki (ER, Gilmore Girls) and Jensen Ackles (Days of Our Lives, Dawson’s Creek – we forgive you for DC, you were young, and of course, Smallville) are brothers who fight ghosties, lots o’ demons, monsters, and all other supernatural type things.

I’m so happy they decided to keep Castiel (Misha Collins), The Colt, the Impala (this Chevy 1967 has been through a lot, it’s basically supernatural itself), Ruby’s Knife, and Bobby (Jim Beaver – Deadwood, Justified, Days of Our Lives) for as long as possible, but I really really wish they could have kept Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Daddy (John) Winchester.

Even threw in Mitch Pileggi for an X-Files kiss.

Action-packed and did I mention the hot guys and the hot car?

This is a program that doesn’t take itself too seriously while trying to remain true to its mythology, and it does so with flare.
