Some of his best zingers:
“Apple roared into the TV game with ‘The Morning Show,’ a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing — made by a company that runs sweatshops in China. You say you’re woke, but the companies you work for, I mean, unbelievable: Apple, Amazon, Disney. If ISIS started a streaming service, you’d call your agent.”
“I came in a limo tonight and the license plate was made by Felicity Huffman.”
“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, nearly three hours long — Leonardo DiCaprio attended the preview and by the end, his date was too old for him.”
“The world got to see James Corden as a fat pussy. He was also in the movie Cats.”
“But dame Judi Dench defended Cats, saying it was the role she was born to play – because she loves nothing better than plunking herself down on the carpet, lifting her leg, and licking her own minge.”
“It was a big year for pedophile movies: ‘Surviving R. Kelly’; ‘Leaving Neverland’; ‘The Two Popes.’”
Interesting weekend. The visiting teams won three out of four games. Two teams with serious Super Bowl aspirations, the Saints and Pats, fell by the wayside on their home turf. That Pats lost at home in Foxboro after losing last week to the Dolphins, truly marking the end of a dynasty.
You’d think that things would get easier for the Titans after beating the Pats in Foxboro. You’d be wrong. Now they have to face the juggernaut that is the Ravens, who last lost in the Hoover administration. Well, it seems that long. It was actually September. The Ravens are favored by 10 in that one.
The other lines for next week:
Packers by four over the Seahawks in Green Bay.
Niners by seven at home against Minnesota.
Chiefs by ten at home over the Texans

She probably showed more than intended in this social media post
As always, there is a summary page with links to film clips.
The usual note to members: you do not need to use those MirrorCreator links to see the film clips. They are all in the members’ section along with about a hundred thousand others and more than a million pics/collages.
The usual note to non-members: become a member. But if you’re not interested in that, and want to use the Mirror Creator links, be aware that they can be tricky. Many links need to be clicked more than once before you get an honest result. Sometimes when you finally get to the actual file host, the real download link is difficult to find, hidden among several decoys that produce pop-ups and other spam. I’ve found that Zippyshare is the most straightforward. Use the orange download box only. The first three times you click it, the download may not begin. Instead the page will open a new tab full of things you don’t care about. Just close them. They are not viruses, just annoyances. The honest download usually begins on the fourth click. I use it every day to download things, so I know it’s harmless. I’m not as familiar with the other hosts.

Now – to think about the decade (or, for that matter, the whole millennium!)
