Some, alas & inexplicably, have NO SOUND. So, don’t panic.
Impressive. Cute. Touching.
The illumination, with 46 pillars of light to denote that Joe Biden will be the 46th President is symbolic & a nice touch.
You should definitely watch at least one of the videos.
Pity that two of the videos (the first two) do not have sound.

2020 Christmas Revels (Cambridge, MA) Traditional ‘Thank You’ Video — To Help Us Look Forward To 2021.
I have already openly lamented, multiple times, that NOT going to ‘Christmas Revels‘, in Cambridge, was the WORST COVID-related DEPRIVATION I suffered in 2020! Think about it. Not going to restaurants, not going to Acadia, not going to Boston — missing ‘Revels’. Moreover, as my 14-year old daughter, another HUGE ‘Revels’ fan (who has been to at least 11 Revels) will attest, I was worrying about it getting cancelled way back in March! That was how early I was thinking about Christmas ‘Revels’ — & that from a man notorious for refusing to plan too far ahead. We, i.e., she & I, had even agreed that we would go to the LAST show — going to last shows something we like doing.
So, getting this video was a consolation.
Needless to say, it is VERY GOOD. Brilliant. Nice to see some familiar faces & hear some voices we know so well.
A BIT put out to see folks seated in MY SEAT in the balcony! That is supposed to be where I am. SMILE.
Watch. Enjoy. Plan for December 2021.

MY Favorite Day of the Year.
Days start to get Longer.
As I do most years I give YOU, in peace,
‘Dona Nobis Pacem‘ (Grant us peace)
for the Winter Solstice.
“The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society” (2018) Movie On Netflix — Outstanding, Heartwarming & Funny.
Great story. Haven’t checked whether it is based on a true story. But, the German occupation of Guernsey was very real & painful. This story very could have happened even if the name of the Society is a tad contrived.
I even recognized — & even more surprisingly correctly placed two of the cast. That is very unusual for I.
Yes, I am sure it is not for everyone. But, if you are into WWII period drama, literature, humor, pigs & a bit of romance you can’t go wrong. Yes, it is predictable, but that doesn’t detract. SMILE.
I enjoyed it. Not sure it can be repeated per se.
It must be good because I watched it all, back-to-back, within a few days. I liked it. Enjoyed it a lot — at multiple levels. Initially thought it was a movie. Did not realize that I would end up spending 8 hours (I think) watching all of it.
Pity it is NOT based on a real story. That would have been neat.
I was never big into chess & haven’t played any for over 30-years. But, I like watching chess movies — or to be more precise movies about famous chess players. That is what I thought this was about. I knew that the “Queen’s Gambit” was a chess play — & yes, that was probably from the 7 or 8 chess movies I have watched over the years. The last one I watched, I think, was “The Luzhin Defense“. It was good. Enjoyed that too. This series reminded me of that movie.
Bottom Line: Memorable. Very well done. Great cinematography. Amazing true — though fictional. Watch it if you can.
“Borat 2” (2020) Movie On Amazon Prime — Some Great Trump Zingers, Very Topical, & The Expected Grossity.
Yes, no mistaking that this is a Borat movie. I was a huge fan of the original Borat movie. I think I might still have the DVD.
I am also an admirer of Sacha Baron Cohen — a fellow Brit. I didn’t particularly like some of his subsequent work, BUT I appreciate that he is awfully clever & talented.
Borat 2 has some SUPERB Donald Trump zingers. Very clever. Delectable.
Shame he couldn’t get this movie out a month earlier. It could have helped with the election. I don’t think it has enough time now.
I am not into grossity &, alas, it is a trademark of the man. Those puerile, intentionally offensive scenes just turn me off. But, you can’t have a Cohen movie without that.
Definitely worth watching. I did some quick research. The CPAC scene was real. Not fake.
Strange. V. strange movie. Really a documentary disguised as a movie. The ‘freewheeling’ & ‘unconventional’ terms used in the movie description are spot on.
You are probably much better watching one of the many — much better — videos on YouTube.
Kind of felt cheated. Didn’t come close to what I was expecting.
I would find it hard to recommend this movie. Sorry!
This review on IMDb.com gets it spot on.
Frybread & diabetes.
To make it worse, there is a segment, early on, when one of the contestants berates two of her coworkers for having an unhealthy lunch & reminds them of THEIR diabetes! Irony. Her doing the shouting — & her doing the frybread cooking — is borderline obese, if NOT outright obese. She probably has diabetes too.
Made me so SAD.
These POOR people.
They lack education, insight, MONEY & resources to understand & control DIABETES. I know. I have spoken to Navajo about it. I have bought them fruit.
It is a HUGE problem & FRYBREAD does NOT help.
That is what makes me so MAD. The last thing these good, decent people need is Frybread.
Very cute. Lavishly produced. Lots of famous faces. Very clever.
Highly recommended. I was mesmerized. Beautiful settings. WOW.
