A Muddy Good Morning!

sky2

Today we have movie reviews. Mostly Netflix and Amazon streaming. You may have to hunt for some of these, but worth the effort.!!

A planned-plan for a split between South American Movies, and Grindy level US films was scheduled, but, 2 problems arose.  #1 Beer at the Arc-light and #2 THIS GUY:

this-guy

Uncle Muddy’s proud of you, epic! Yet, still: meet your deadline!


CUT TO:

Ok, vamos a empezar!

(Muddy’s side notes: In this case, mostly sub-titled! Wherever the locale, a well subtitled movie is the only way to go..dubbed is too Kung-Fu silly, and robs the dialogue-the media, of it’s power.)

Netflix Streaming: OG series. El Marginal: Season 1

mr1

Location, a hard-core,  stone-age prison in Buenos -Aires, Argentina.

Basically: A man planted, not by choice, in a hellish, prisoner ran prison, needs to handle a situation. (Muddy recommends, but doesn’t ruin.)

mr2

Bad good guys. Good bad guys. Politics, violence, love, and crazy plot-twists make this a keeper!  Plus this blond guy above..rocks it! Call it: Pulp Novella

3 1/2 MuddyFingers!


CUT TO:

Netflix Streaming Movies: Los Jefes 2015

mr5

Careful who you “take for a ride” especially in this Northern Mexico neighborhood!

mr4

La Bamba” carries this flick on his ample shoulders.

Decent story+Great casting= Good Movie!!

3 MUDDYFINGERS!


CUT TO:

Behind the Sun (Brazil 2001: Portugese) Netflix DVD

mr-10

A dogmatic, traditional feud, decimates 2 families over 100 years until it is broken by an unlikely hero!

This movie shouldn’t be a secret gem.

4 MUDDYFINGERS!


CUT TO:

SIN NOMBRE (2009 Mexico) Netflix DVD

mr6

A hard world. A nomadic train. An insane gang presence. A love story.

mr7

Passed over for a promotion? Can’t get a date? They always make your coffee wrong? STFU: Your life is a dreamy breeze!

This movie adjusts your reality!

3 1/2 MUDDYFINGERS!


CUT TO:

What have we learned today. A theme of violence and gangs? No, these movies, for the most part, deal in self realization, moments of clarity, love and redemption. When your face smiles, tell it: Muddy sent ya!

FADE OUT

MUDDYFINGERS!

6 Degrees of Awesomeration! Or: Knowing Where To Tink! aka:Know your worth!

a-note-backer

Henry Ford to Charles Steinmetz to Ruben Apadaca to Muddy Fingers! That’s 4 degrees, anyway.

FADE IN:

Listen up folks, another Guide To Life. Or is it Twisted Media?

Lets start here:

DCIM100GOPRO

 CUT TO:

Told DIRECTLY to Muddy by the Late Great Ruben Apadaca. Others may have tried to regurgitate this story, but f#%k them, this is word, from the Man.

rubenapodaca

Master Illustrator for Disney and Warner Bros. for many years! Rip Mr Apadaca 2005. An amazing man, closer to 70 when he told Muddy this tale..he was far funnier than me , so I’ll do my best.

CUT TO:

Start here,  with him: Henry Ford.d041-model-t-assembly-henry-ford

Ford was a true American Bad-Ass:

thf101429_detroitjournal_01-05-1914_edit_small11

But again, I digress.  So, back to the  Assembly Line.

9d0f48b8f6ed849888bb56a07ad4ab85

Which had stopped running. Henry and his crew of engineers couldn’t for the life of them find or fix the problem. Not mechanical that’s their forte. Must be electrical?

Henry went to his Rolodex (aka:contacts aka friends list) which was epic.

He rang up Charles Steinmetz..Who the fuck is Charles Steinmetz? Muddy is going to tell you.

CUT TO:

charles-s

Charles Steinmetz is the guy Edison called when his lights went out. Charles Steinmetz is a Grand Master of Electrical Bad-Assery. Charles Steinmetz  overcame physical deformity. Charles Steinmetz lived in a general bad time for nerds..what did he do?

steinlangsomerset_1921-480

He organized a gang  on campus to combat the Jocks, called “The Tough Brett’s.” How gangster do have to be to have Fuckin’ Einstein, yes, Einstein, on his right shoulder here, as your Sargent at Arms? They easily took the library, and secured two good tables in the commissary. ANYWAY that’s Charles Steinmetz. (side note: Einstein’s father was no Einstein, although technically, he was)

So that was Ford’s go to. Yet, Ford couldn’t be there to greet Steinmetz, as a pre-planned vacation with Mrs. Ford was UN-cancelable!

frugal-ford

Ford was an overly Frugal man, much to his wife’s chagrin. He had the choice of any car in the factory, yet took the most stripped down-Model T available, wrecking havoc with her hair.. I believe she drove a Chevy. So,  Away they went!

Steinmetz, meanwhile heads to the factory.

cart

CUT TO:

Once there he heads into the factory, watched by a veritable army of engineers and hopeful workers. Charles proceeds to tinker around.

6c2cc23f8bff0f61f6c62a81384f21d9.jpg

He fixes it up in a jiff.

ueuh_0001_0001_0_img0037

And back to work they go..pumping out cars at a break-neck pace.

t.jpg

Charles rows home. Preparing the billing as he goes.

yv7hpxm

Ford arrives back at the factory and finds things steaming along!

steaming

He’s whisked back to the office, and finds a telegram on his desk.

henryford-lab

The telegram reads: Henry, glad I could help. $10,00o DUE!

Henry, FRUGAL and flabbergasted..telegrams back:

a-note-back

“I appreciate the help. My thousands of workers appreciate the help! That being said, by all accounts, you spent only a short while tinkering around. $10,000 dollars?

STEINMETZ. OG. Responds, Testify!  Verbatim!

a note backer.jpg

Henry, really?  Tinkering around = FREE!

KNOWING WHERE TO TINK…$10,000!!

Ford wired the money to Charles, on the spot!

 

THE MORAL OF THE STORY?

Know your worth. If they could do it, or fix it, they would! 10,ooo hours of “tinkering around” makes it look easy!

The Universe bless Mr Apadaca!

FADE OUT:

MUDDY FINGERS!

Wayward Feline: or F’ You Captain Stubbing!

FADE IN:

Muddy was once sad, but now flustered. My cat Captain Stubbing disappeared some time ago.  I searched high and low. I felt responsible. We had the talk,  “Your nuts have to go.”

To which Captain Stubbing replied: “Fuck Meow Mix., and Fuck you Muddy, that’s a no!

He saw a goddamn movie with a traveling gnome, and thinks he’s funny, sending these to Muddy from around the world!

cat

I never thought I’d say this, but: Fuck you Captain Stubbing, and the boat you cruised in on!!

The Ricardo-Castaway Connection

FADE IN:

Basically, it started here:coco

And here:

empire

Yet,  really,  It begins here..as usual.

money-howell

CUT TO:

Chapter One:  The Islands

Meet Thurston Howell the 3rd.  Like many of his ilk, genetically infected with the sickness of greed and entitlement.

It all started when Thurston concocted a plan. A plan to increase his swimming like Scrooge McDuck funds, of which he could not fritter away Monty Brewster style in 2 lifetimes,  into a more ridiculous amount, in an effort to leverage that INTO MORE!

m-howell

After all he had everything he needed. Well almost everything.

We know he had an  Island, and:

A BOAT:

project-ss-minnow-p4-toy

AND:

skipcapt-1

A Captain, named “Skipper“, openly gay, and the first known “BEAR” in the Manhattan Trans-nightclub scene.  He’s still legend there, check it out. “Big Boy S”also  ran a Thursday Night Drag Queen Extravaganza known as: “The House of Yogi” on the ISLE!

tumblr_m6yvku6tpx1rs5ahvo1_500

The Skipper had a formidable crew: The 1st Mate and his  Hench-women

gilligan

Gilligan “East Coast Connection” and his muscle: Mary Ann: Mid-West Distributor and assassin- enforcer. And Ginger: Ex-Starlet, turned West-Coast distributor. Gilligan and Skip’s personal body guard’s and go-to gals.

But all that don’t mean shit without:

THE MAN:

22384b76-7992-474e-8d2e-de98e1fc623f_00333600

The Professor AKA: “MR METH”.  He eats, drinks and sleeps methamphetamine. Better, faster, stronger!  “Mr GLASS-WARE,”  “METHENSTEIN,”  AKA: THE PROFESSOR. The Devil is known by many names.

His method was  PURE-SCIENCE and un-falable.

lab2.PNG

the-lab

 

His production was epic

packing

He once made and sent:

blue-meth-candy-amazon

TO:

ww

With the following note..verbatim!:  “I made this with a crab extract and some berries to turn it blue you attention whore. NO need for methalyne, knucklehead, LEARN SOME FUCKIN’ CHEMISTRY!  It’s just science, dude! With love the Prof xoxox”.

A Mistake, but  I DIGRESS.

Product, Delivery,  Muscle, Money.  But Distributors-that one thing needed?

CUT TO:

CHAPTER TWO: THE NEW YORK CONNECTION

“Lucy Makilla-Cuttie”

lucy-strung

And “Ricky Scar-Face Ricardo

ricky-scar-face

 

East Coast Distributors: The “Queen Pin” and “The Cuban Connect”

CUT TO:

Running cons, and low grade weed, was easy with Ricky’s road touring, and nightclub operations.

lucy-blunt

Yet, being the Queen of the “Blunt” wasn’t shit to Lucy McK-R.  Bad-Bitch #1!

Lucy got out on her own. Worked the docks. Made connections.

corbis-be064606

CUT TO:

And then “One Fateful Day“, after many a salty experience, Lucy struck pay-dirt!

g-1st-mate

She met “Mr East Coast.”  The FIRST MATE. His “source” had  product to move and plenty of it.

CUT TO:

freezer

Lucy and Ethel Take 1st delivery. But,  before distribution, they hatch a plan!

Hard Boiled, they come up fast. Tasking competition elimination as their first priority!

CUT TO:

Ricky is not happy with high-profile shit, but,  MONEY?

desi-money

cbs_lucy_001_hd_r_content_cian_1280x720_322929219970_390212_640x360

EVERYBODY IS GETTIN MONEY!

And The “Queen-Pin” has a lock down scheme to get more!

LucySCHEMES? She’s The MASTER! She knows where to get the backing, and STOP with all the rink-a dink  back-alley shit.

CHAPTER THREE: MEANWHILE, BACK ON THE ISLAND:

It’s safer and healthier to have Pimp Daddy Howell’s Money..every penny! On time! He invented “The Vig”.

DCIM100GOPRO

“THIRSTY THURSTON” kept a close eye on them.

gilligans-island

He had “Henchmen” galore. As seen here with an old war buddy from the Gestapo.

thumb14

AND, basically,  one look: “Bitch, where’s my Money?”

howell-my-money

CUT TO:

We’ve been over this before.  Cash-Cows,  Unchecked,  always get weird:

FIRST A HUGE COVER-UP..They don’t need the attention!

malaysian_air_on_gilligans_island

Then The Prof develops a full proof, high-test HGH. Eventually, he made more with the Russian Olympic Committee  than he ever did cooking.

mary-buff

proff-kills

I have no idea what the fuck is going on here. Possibly,  the Professor needs to open some windows? NO respirator or suit, he’s straight gangster…but obviously needs some sleep.

Meanwhile the “gang” dabble in soft-core porn-films:

wolf-of-gilligans-island-a-mashu

And here, The Skipper introduces the girls to his hair-less man-boy: “Lenny

girls-and-skip

It seems “gay” is an extreme definition for Lenny..leading to a falling out with his “Skipper”.

On the other side of the island?  Assorted shenanigans continue.

All the while “Thirsty Thurston” and “Lovey’s”cash was stacking high and well protected!

CHAPTER FOUR: MEANWHILE BACK IN THE “BIG APPLE”

lucy-poster-2-new

 

LUCY’S Brainstorm: A patent, lawyer-ed by the the Howell Co. A proprietary blend secrecy pact, like KFC’s Colonel, was worked out and boom:  50 hour Liquid energy for the masses .

Demonstrating, however, became a problem

lucy11

Still, straight CHEDDER for her and Ethel..this is the way to HUSTLE!

ilovelucyladiesoverseasaidcharity

Lucy develops a “sweet tooth” and proceeds to get weirder herself, as Ethel steers the ship.

 Male Strippers and Ricky’s hot blooded Latin passion DID NOT MIX!

Ricky, actually the puppet master here, feels the end is nigh.

shut-up-lucy

He quietly describes a “Cuban Neck Tie” to the girls..

Ricky then Makes a phone call to the SOUTH-WEST. Allies “The Cuban Connect” with a new supplier. War is declared on the “Castaway Cartel”

FADE OUT:

FADE IN:

CHAPTER FIVE: BAY OF PIGS

The Professor was really the only one prepared, in the end. Who else among them was familiar with the “Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle?”  Plus, he started the shit.

He warns them: Imminent danger!

warns-them

screen_shot_2014-01-16_at_9-55-39_pm-2

Yet, goes back to work on a new batch. It’s strong enough to power his “escape vehicle.” He dubs it “Rocket Fuel“, and tests it out, with no explanation, on The G1Mate.

19cunrpydsltvjpg

g-and-p

G-Thug and The Skipper have  had enough. They shave their heads like the “Hokum Baldies” (side note: Nobody fucks with the Baldies) and send Ginger in,  ARMED!

ging-muscle

SHE BUSTS A CAP IN THE GENIUSES ASS..Non-lethal though, he is the cook.

ginger-gun

Mary-Ann is merely “Collateral Damage.” She denied having said upon the Farm-Girls demise: “Ginger or..nothing, bitch!”.

FADE OUT:

Things are falling apart here. Meanwhile back in the BIG APPLE.

FADE IN:

Ricky taps his new contact. Starts his network.

on-da-phone

Lucy sticks with the live show and commercial advertising. Town by town. DUBBED: “Operation Snake Oil.”

winkwe

Ricky’s new business model: The “Pollos Hermanos Strategy” Had him hooking in with local heartland businesses.

hardeware

Their strategy: Targeting local bikers 1st!

perfect

Who in-turn sold to, or recruited  local youth’s.

biker-blow

These strategies coined the phrase: “Biker Blow” re Meth and Crank. Also,  Ricky’s pyramid funnel up is the complete business model of many huge Companies, such as Amway and Herbalife..Save for Ricky’s were in-demand products and sold, so his pipeline actually worked.

THAT MY FRIENDS IS A STORY FOR ANOTHER DAY!

CUT TO:

CHAPTER 6: “SAY MY NAME”

The end came quickly for the Castaway connection.

A pissed off WW came with his ARMY of mercenary’s .

crans

 

Ginger had a bright idea: Absconding with the Professors Plan B

The PROF, however, hadn’t got over that “cap in his ass.” He left a surprise on the pack.

jet-pack3

Dodging the explosion only delays the inevitable for the 1ST Mate. In the end, Gilligan got caught slippin’

fire

The Skipper, having noticed the local population’s strong  hairless physiques..

skip

..disappeared into the jungle, long before the attack.

skippers-delight

Local legend, if you go to the Island, is still used to frighten young men and boys to be home before dark. Or the “Abominable Yeti” will leap from the jungle..and hump the crap outta you!

captian

Who else?

the_professor_gilligans_island

The Professor? “WW” watched him sail away on a Russian Sub, flipping the bird as they submerged, the PROFESSOR shouted: “Fuck You Heisenburg!” Who’s the King? SAY MY NAME!!!

They watched the carnage.

And were back in Manhattan the next day doing lunch with celeb friends. Here “Thirsty” lunches AT DORSIA, with a Eva Gardener. (with no reservation!)
