A PERSONAL NOTE from THE FUTURIST!

Okay. That’s it.

He gives up.

THE FUTURIST! presents:

IF IT’S TUESDAY …

IT MUST BE … 

time to perform well-dressed exercises instructed by Dr. Eric Sorbo.

Today it is time to exercise your Piriformis muscle.

THE FUTURIST! performed this today in his home office and made sure he was in a tie, dress shirt, shoes, and dress trousers.

He found it very relaxing and good for his posture, as well as strangely erotic.

Due to the sensations felt in the lower torso, he performed it more than the recommended 3 to 5 repetitions.

THE FUTURIST! suggests you do this with lowered ambient room lighting (or candle light) and cocktail music.

Dear Piriformis Muscle:

THE FUTURIST! loves you very much . XXO

THE FUTURIST! woke up this morning to find this looming over his groggy head.
Strange, disconcerting and quite bucolic, but at least he had fresh milk for his coffee. He usually takes it black, but when in Rome, NY … etc etc.

Casino Royale by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass (featuring Mike Redway)

The first version of “Casino Royale” was released in 1967. Critical opinion was divided, with some regarding it as “possibly the most indulgent film ever made” while others as “a psychedelic, absurdist masterpiece”. 

THE FUTURIST! writes:

This catchy romp of a musical piece was part of James Bond Music Week at The Third Man Cinema Pub. Though not an official James Bond theme, CASINO ROYALE (1967), the film, holds a special place (along with BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID) in THE FUTURIST!’s emotional movie heart. You don’t understand why this mess of a 007 spoof is so dear to THE FUTURIST!? Well, that is hard to articulate … maybe it will be explained sometime in the Future.

"Gene? Are you watching THE FUTURIST!? He saw you. That’s right. You know, don’t you? You saw his recognition from across the rustic lake after he was alerted by the glint of sunlight reflection on the binocular lens … and now you are found out and a bit taken aback by that knowledge. He knows, you Vixen! Cocktails, later?"
