A CARTOON MOMENT WITH LIQUOR

This is how the “film” of THE FUTURIST!’s work day begins as the movie of his Life unspools through the projector.
It’s an 8 hour epic.
With a 30 minute intermission for a sandwich.
THE FUTURIST! can’t wait until the credits roll and he emerges into the daylight of the parking lot.

Something jaunty to send THE FUTURIST! off to bed only to arise early to meet work … he may have to play this again in the morning to get the “jaunt” back in his legs.

ADVENTURE OF THE UTTER DESPAIR NJ STRANGLER
It’s just too hot in Utter Despair NJ.
Humid, Stifling. Hazy. Sweaty and uncomfortable.
The Strangler can’t abide it.
He just cannot get “into” his reason for living in this weather. How can he possibly dress stylish AND wear gloves in this suffocating heat? His hands are just not bearing up under this environmental amazonian atmosphere. He could feel the pores of each digit and each palm gasping for air under the leather.
He has decided to go away for awhile to a cooler climate. He has not disclosed the location to anyone, in case they alert the authorities.
He did not even tell his on again/off again paramour Penelope (aka The Utter Despair Black Widow). She has had several husbands sadly expire … some may have met their demise due to being handled by The Strangle … BUT … that is only a rumor.
The Strangler informed Penelope of his decision last night after they had a romantic dinner and saw a film at The Hive Mall. 
Penelope was quite sad and heartbroken, but NOT so much over The Strangler’s vacation away from the heat, but because his left hand glove button snap got caught on her mesh stocking as he tried to console her with the news with a loving knee pat.
The intense prolonged frustrating disengaging of his glove and her hosiery was the most passion they had had in weeks.
*sigh*

The economy is in the dumper, no one has money, jobs are scarce, hours at work are being cut … and guess what?

The retailers want us to BUY!

Let’s rejoice with a pagan-like ballroom dance dedicated to the love of buying.

Things haven’t really changed, dear readers … this is 2014, but America still loved their stoves and refrigerators in 1957, too.

Dance, Fools, DANCE, for tomorrow, you go into debt!

American materialism … what bliss.

A THE FUTURIST! Regret

The Third Man Cinema Pub DID NOT show ROLLERCOASTER (1977) this July 4th in their screening room.

And THE FUTURIST! did NOT, either, in Thimble Theater.

This is a double disgrace.

THE FUTURIST! was overheard to say:
You are SO coy, negativeculpability.
This is a secret message to THE FUTURIST!, isn’t it?

PIERCE BROSNAN’S PAIN FACE 

from all the 007 movies.

You have to expect to grimace if you are responsible for protecting Queen and Country.

And Nobody Does It Better.
