[Edit: Continued from http://www.badmovies.org/forum/index.php/topic,122070.0.html]

Time for a new reading thread.

I finally finished reading Mark Twain's 1860s reports home from Hawaii.

Facts from Peggy Orenstein's Boys and Sex : Young Men on Hookups, Love, Porn, Consent, and Navigating the New Masculinity. A sequel to her earlier Girls and Sex.

1. While we think of young men, as being a group, we ought to, instead, think of them as being individuals.

2. Young women have made more progress navigating the new sexuality than young men.

3. If we neglect our young women, when it comes to the new sexuality, we neglect our young men even more.

4. While young men may be less vulnerable to sexual exploitation than young women, they are still vulnerable, which makes them in some ways even more vulnerable.

5. It is a problem that has no easy solutions.

6. Not only do some men want to turn the clock back to the old sexuality, so do some women.

7. As sad as all this may be, there is still hope today and in the future.

8. Today, we are more accepting of young men who are sexually different than we have been in the passt.

9. Tomorrow, the young men of today know what they are missing, and it is with hope, that they will, when they have young men of their own, will fill in what is missing.

10. I have never seen higher reviews for a book on Amazon, then I have for this one. Almost all 5* reviews.

Next time: we will see what we may see.

Yeah, since they re-invented sex we now have that whole new way babies get made. Personally I think the old method had a lot going for it. (People shore do like to re-make the wheel.)

One Flew Over the Cukoos Nest by Ken Kesey.
In the novel, it's narrated by Chief, the big Indian guy.

On my best friend's recommendation, I'm reading SARUM: THE NOVEL OF ENGLAND by Edward Rutherford.
It's a marvelous, sprawling historical epic.

I got a copy of "Nostromo" by Joseph Conrad from my local library just before the quarantine. I was expecting it to last longer than usual on my nightstand, but now there's no pressure or need to call for an extension.

It's a fascinating book. It deals with a series of characters -mostly expatriates- living in an imaginary latinamerican country towards the end of the XIXth century. The point of view is debatable -we're supposed to despise the locals and root for the foreigners who run things instead-, but the personal stories are fantastic and the language is a thing of beauty.

I've had a love-hate relationship with Conrad for years, but this novel has definitely won me over.

Since they didn't tape the show, this is my only opportunity to see (in my mind's eye) the re-riff of EEGAH.

A lot of people don't like the Medveds because they're too snarky and seem like they don't truly love the movies they criticize, but they are the pioneers of "bad movie" appreciation.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
