What a Wonderful Bag of Nuts Olivia Colman Is

Olivia Colman is going to get a lot of attention from now on, if only because her stream-of-consciousness reaction to being given awards is so highly entertaining as to perhaps eclipse the very excellent work she does in films.

Her resume is incredibly impressive, and she is one of the hardest working actresses in the world. She even appeared in the original version of the Office! The attention she is getting is overdue.

The Perils of Being Royal

I have noticed that the British tabloid press has decided that it will be profitable (and fun!) to destroy Meghan Markle for the crime of being an interesting American woman who happens to be married to Prince Harry.

The press are being aided and abetted in this noble endeavor by those inside of the Royal family’s immense staff who wish to make trouble for the newlyweds. While the world burns down all around us, they have decided that this will be the seasonal fun of the English people. They will make humans miserable in order to have their old pecking order back the way it was when Harry was a single man.

Not sure if this is going to work out the way people expect it will. First, they could end up driving the couple out of the country. They could live anywhere, but I’m guessing they will move to California and have a non-traditional life, which is probably what they want to have happen in the first place. I mean, you could live in Malibu, or fucking London, and deal with wonderful weather and mildly amusing people or the hell of the British tabloid press and the shit sandwich that is the way of life they see right now. Grandma isn’t dying any time soon and who wants to live under the batty King Charles when it happens?

Second, they could end up accomplishing nothing because, at the end of the day, Princes William and Harry have a plan in place, and that plan will be to quietly turn the Royal family into something similar to what they have in Scandinavia when their Grandmother and Father are dead. They have no stomach for what was done to their mother which, to me, looks very similar to what’s being done to Meghan. Scores need to be settled, and these two young men have always looked ready to bury some knives in the backs of the people who carried out so many awful schemes against Princess Diana.

Third, this is all bullshit being done to sell “clicks” or papers in a country that is being torn into pieces by Russian trolls, right wing zealots, and actual fucking racist trash. You’d think the press would be more obsessed with what Brexit will do rather than an American princess, but how the hell does that sell anything to anyone?

I have always thought that William and Harry have a pact, and that they will unleash a hellish purge of the people who were behind the demonization of their mother. If those same people are trying to destroy the marriage of the youngest prince, God help them when the funerals are over.

Who Was This Guy on Frasier?

It may be a personality defect of mine or completely unfair, but I fucking hate Frasier and I thought he was the worst thing about Cheers every time I saw it. I hated his fucking show and I still can't believe it was on for eleven seasons.

The guy on the end is Dan Butler, who was on the show from 1993 to 2004. I have no memory of him being on Frasier because I never watched Frasier. Isn't that weird?

Anyway, my gripe against Netflix is--quit with this crap. I don't want to see Frasier. How do I block this from showing up in my recommendations and how can I let everyone know how annoyed I am?
