New Randy Rainbow Video-“THOSE WERE THE GOOD OLD DAYS”

Since last January, the world we knew has descended into a chaotic mess that is nearly unrecognizable.

For many of us who are counting the days until the 2020 election (or until impeachment, whichever comes first), Randy Rainbow provides a safe port of call that is warm, comfortable, sarcastic and extremely funny.

His new video is entitled “THOSE WERE THE GOOD OLD DAYS”.

We need more Randy Rainbows in this world.

P.S. Does anyone long for the days when George W. Bush was President? If anyone would have asked me that question 15 years ago, I would have said they were crazy. If only we had a crystal ball back then….

Throwback Thursday- W. (2008)

It takes a certain type of person whose goal is to be President Of The United States.

In W. (2008), director Oliver Stone and screen writer Stanley Weiser told the story of George W. Bush, the 43rd President Of The United States.

Stepping into the real life shoes of the President and former First Lady Laura Bush were James Brolin and Elizabeth Banks. The movie starts with George’s wild college days and ends with his 2004 re-election to the Presidency.

The thing about this movie is that as free of politics as it tries to be it, it’s impossible. George W. Bush was one of the most controversial Presidents of recent memory. Either you loved him or you hated him. The movie confirmed which side of the fence you were on at the time.

Do I recommend it? Yes, if the audience is looking at it as a study in characters and politics in a satirical film. Otherwise, no because it’s too intertwined with reality.
