King Gambrinus - Patron Saint of beer.

Blah blah blah and shit. And a movie review.

I had a bunch of stuff to post about, but I forgot what it was.

In other news, yet another rumor that Castro is dead is floating around. These rumors used to float around once every year or two, then they started to float around yearly, then two or three times a year, then monthly, and now it seems like it is a weekly thing. Well not quite but almost. And one of these days it will not be just a rumor, it will be fact.

Nobody lives forever. Castro is an old fart and not in the best health. Shit for all we know he is dead now. It is very possible. I really would not be surprised. What is that guy? Like 90 or 100 now? He has to drop dead any day now. If he is not already worm food but the Cuban government is hiding it. I would hope the CIA would know and leak it to the media. The CIA is supposed to know about stuff like this. And I know they would just love to break the story to force Cuba to admit it.

And so now, my prediction. Nobody is leaving Miami. The first few waves of exiles live here now. All the property that had is gone. Other people live on it now. If they want it back, they will have to buy it back. This is possible. But if they try to just go back and take what is "theirs" the people living on that land may disagree.

But if a lot of people do go back, it would be nice. There would be less traffic. Rent may get cheaper. And so on.

I just hope that when the news does break, I am not stuck in too much traffic. The standard way to celebrate in Miami is to drive around on major roads at 10 mph honking your horn. It is also the standard way to protest. 8 people in cars can block thousands of people from getting anywhere by simply blocking all the lanes on a highway. It has happened before.

So lets hope this does not happen again. People can be happy and celebrate and stuff (Castro is an asshole after all) but there is no reason to block Bird Road. People are trying to get to work, or get home from work. They do not want to be stuck in traffic.

Anyway, MOVIE REVIEW! Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance.

Mr. Vengeance is a strange film from a Korean director. The concept is revenge. In fact, this movie is part one of the directors "revenge trilogy".

In Mr. Vengeance it is hard to tell who the sympathetic character is. And it is hard to keep track of what exactly is going on. The audio is in Korean, but there are English subtitles. How well the translation is I can not say. "Peter piper picked a peck of pickled peppers" will probably not translate very well into Korean - the alteration will be lost and the phrase will just be nonsense. But there is not much dialog in this film anyway.

A mute has a sister that needs a kidney. He can not donate one to her. So he goes to some black market organ dealers. They take his money and one of his kidneys. So now the sister has an organ available (the dealers find one somehow) but there is no money to pay for the operation. So the mute and his girlfriend kidnap some rich guys kid. And then all hell breaks loose. Everyone is seeking revenge on everyone else - for different reasons.

A lot of viewers on Netflix give this 5 stars. And I do not know why. I give it three tail whips. Not horrible but not great either. It just is. It is the first of the three films, so I will see how the other two are.

I think Castro is only about 81 years old. Of course, he's not a healthy 81, but they might be able to prop him up for a good while yet.

I believe that you're right about Cubans returning to Cuba. Not many will. They pretty much own Miami, so why should they leave?

The Lazy,

Doozie loves an 8 inch cigar.

When Castro dies I'm moving to Cuba to get away from the blacks.

I caught 12 Red Fish today out in Clearwater Bay. Averaged about 20 inches. Using shrimp and casting into some old pilings in the bay.

I can see it now riots in Miami due to Castro's departure from the living and the end of the wet foot dry foot. If the policy does not end then there we still be riots only in the Haitian part of town.

Castro has already set up Raul his bro to run the country when he finally meets his maker.

Nothing will change drastically in Cuba imho.

I don't know 'bout that movie dude..

That film sounds pretty maudlin.
I thought Ronald Reagan was dead back when he was in office. I was pretty sure he was a puppet and someone was pulling his strings. The same may well be true for Castro. He may have died years ago, he just has good pupeteers.

TLP - the man is pretty old. I do not know how much longer he can hang on. I think he has ass cancer or something. I do not think anyone will leave. But if they do - it will mean less traffic and more houses for sale and more places up for rent. Values will drop and I will be better off. It will become slightly cheaper to live. But the city will not go away.

Doozie - If you are going to go for an old fart, hold out for one with more money. Look for some 90 year old billionaire.

Rufus - you may want to rethink that plan :)

Anonymous - I do not think there will be riots, just a lot of traffic blocking and stuff. The Haitians are already used to getting the shaft. Their lobby is not anywhere near as powerful.

Teri - the movie was OK. It was different. You do not see all the plot twists before they happen.

Dusty - there is a plan made by the Miami exiles for Cuba. They want to go in with money and rebuild the place as it was in the 40s and 50s before Castro. Big hotels, casinos, and a corrupt dictator that is OK with a clear division of wealth. In other words, the darker you are the poorer you will be. But this is what caused el revolution in the first place. I think the people on the island now will want more say. The place will be cleaned up and money will pour in and really nice resorts will pop up - but it will never really be the same.

CM - it is possible the man is dead and has been dead for some time. But I think the CIA would know about it. Whenever the son of a bitch dies the world will be slightly better off in all likelihood. The man is a grade A asshole.
