We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Check out Step Into Liquid. Amazing good documentary about the birth of big wave surfing. Cool stuff for any nature lover. Or lover of modern and vintage surf music.
And since we're going OT, if you're in a mood for entertaining sports / lifestyle documentaries, check out the Barkley Marathons: The Race That Eats Its Young. It's worth watching for the gas gauge story alone. Icarus is also very much worth a watch, about a MAMIL - Middle Aged Man in Lycra - who wanted to see what a proper pro cyclist doping regime could do to improve his performance, and to document it. A US anti-doping official put him in touch with a Russian anti-doping official who knows more about how people dope than anybody in the world. And the Russian official, it turns out, was running both the Russian anti-doping program around the time of the Sochi games, and the Russian doping program, and he wanted to turn State's Evidence. It turns from what should have been a boring documentary of interest only to amateur endurance athletes, into a story about murder, corruption, psychiatric hospitals, the FBI and dunderheaded bureaucracies, and how dopers get away with it in bigtime sports. My wife thought it was a as insane as the events that unfolded. When it won Best Documentary she changed her mind.
