I went and saw the movie 'Isle of Dogs' at the cinema on Tuesday night and I liked it even though I'm a cat person and cat people weren't portrayed in a very good light in the movie. But what would you expect from those dog-loving people who made the movie anyway, right?-) Meeeeooow! But I thought it was rather synchronistic that I see the next morning that the Queen of England had to put down her last corgi the week the film was released.
"The scene in which Chief is given a bath and comes out with a completely different appearance is an homage to the picture book "Harry The Dirty Dog", in which children "find" their lost dog by giving a bath to what they think is a stray.
Chief even has similar markings to Harry."
Oh, and I forgot to mention that there is a black owl who gets a fair share of screen time compared to any one cat in the movie.
So, that should please owl persons like Mike Clelland who are into owls and give a hoot for these creepy birds.
Personally when it comes to owls (or dogs;-)I say WHO cares?-)
which is worth having a listen to, I think. "It’s clear that the unimaginable future that Rachel Carson warned us about in 1962 in her best-seller, Silent Spring, has become our daily reality.
On a colossal and historic scale—from our water, air, and soil to the factory-grown food which no longer nourishes us—all is definitely not well on our planet, and each of us can sense that.
Ellen Gunter's New book, Reunion, not only offers a way to look at the global reality we all share; it also provides a path to understanding how this came to be and what each of us can do—individually and together—to bring our earth, and ourselves, back to wholeness."
The writing is on the wall for this spaceship we are all on and it's time to s#it or get off the pot in 2018 if we want to stop this ship sinking into the sewer. I don't necessarily agree with the whole "Global Warming' theory being totally caused by the burning of fossil fuels, but it is common sense that to stop burning fossil fuels would stop pollution in the big cities, plus it's hard to see how to keep chopping down forests is a good practice for the planet, not to mention all of the plastic floating around in our oceans.
The planet is at a tipping point right now, or should that be sinking point? We need to remember the serenity prayer of AA when it comes to saving the environment that we still have when we do the shopping.
