My ex is not interested in my absense, he was not charming and jovial after all. I thought my ex adored me. I'm fateful and confused. I thought there had been a terrible misunderstanding with my ex. But no. My sense of abandonment was cataclysmic. There was pain, deceit and rejection thrust upon me. My ex said he imagined a relationship with me. He caused hurt. Being rejected by my ex tragic. He left me, wrote himself out of our life in a selfish act – altered our course. I don't know how to forgive. My ex firmly rejected me. My needs to make restitution – he cared so little. My ex is absolutely detestable. He disregards me and is coldly silent. I hope my ex dies lonely and miserable. I'm not worthy of my ex's time. I've a deep sense of sadness, there is no sense of perosnal responsibility from my ex. He did a wilful flight and is defined by absence. Things with my ex were destined to end unhappily. My deceptive ex has made no offer of amends. He did incalculable damage. My ex's emotional disconnect hurts.

Movie Review: Precinct Seven Five (2015)

A documentary about NYPD corruption in the 1980s and 1990s focusing on infamous cop Michael Dowd. We see lots of vintage footage. Dowd did drugs and committed theft while on duty. People talk of a crime wave and crack and how there were 3500 murders a year. NY was a warzone in the 1980s. Parts of NY looked like Beriut. Dowd had deep dark secrets.


There is a dangerous disortive lens of nostalgia. There are talk of guns and a past too terrible to contemplate. East NY was the worst of a damn bad lot. What led to up to Dowd's inevitable reckoning? He tells us, gleefully. Dowd and others had a complacency about IA.


There is compensatory mythology. Cops feel it necessary to forge bonds for survival. There was bitter conflict on the street and emotional consequences. They felt like they weren't steming the flow of crime. Dowd was a ruthless operator with arch-pragmatism. He had a deep antipathy for the rules. He couldn't be uncongenial and had contempt. He and others increasingly defined themselves by money.


Dowd finds it amusing, like he's Ray Liotta in 'Goodfellas'. He bought a condo in Myrtle Beach. There was deep antipathy and collective responsibility and things got uncongenial. Dowd had his own analysis of where his destiny law. He had a sense of superiority. He thought being busted was inconceivable.


There was deception and nonsense. There was no peace and contentment. There is talk of low pay and greed and temptation and violent paternalism pathologising behaviour, thoughts and emotions. Dowd had absolutely no mercy, we never hear about him doing his job. There was social stability. There was indoctrination and people living in dread. One pays solemn attention and things are contentious. There were very few voices of dissent and there was no damage limitation.


Dowd's 'career' was a series of disasters. People are dismissive of violence. The privileges of male domination comes at a terrible price. Things have a negative effect. Dowd was a source of damage and he was toxic, useless, brooding, bitter, abusive, monstrous, neglectful wastrel. Joyful good riddance to him, the monstrous, cruel, violent bully.


This causes a kind of emptiness. There was superfluity, unnecessary, unforseen, unwelcome, unimaginable and anger rages. There was a capacity for acceptance of crime and unwelcome memories. There were complicated relationship with criminals. Things got compellingly dysfunctional. Dowd had a very public fall from grace and he couldn't stay ahead of the craziness.


There were negative comments and a slippery slope and the stakes were always perilously high. He got validation from his cruel and harrowing acts. One runs a gamut of emotions. He drove his drug corvette to the precinct where he worked.


There was murder and whsipers and caustic observations and this was a chaotic and riotous retelling. He had cocaine in his wife's kitchen and no pragmatism. He felt no responsibility and intensely rationalised their behaviours. Dowd deserved berating and things were not harrowing and events were hugely impactful. It is asked why his coworkers didn't turn him in. His fall after his partner turned on him led to hearings. Dowd was drinking on the job.


Dowd developed a reputation over town. There was a long, unbroken history of denying this was a problem, of minimising it and covering it up. People were recalcitrant in instituting change. Dowd and his partner were busted and they were on the brink of ruin. There was cultural catastrophe and urgency and coherence. Dowd is genuinely appalling. There was cultural coding and ignorant psychopaths. This was a communal experience. Hell is forever other people.


There is bad behaviour and Dowd whined pathetically. There were unreasonable beliefs and corruption = social experience. Dowd has subsequent banishment. He achieved mediocrity at so many levels. Cliches fly so thick and heavy. Dowd is incredibly creepy and clearly lying every time he opens his mouth. He was trapped in a conspiratorial web. Things were dark and joyless.


Things got truly weird. This was gripping and enlightening. Dowd created mischief. This was all about a gallery of cads. This was all slow, misanthrophic bitterness, pain and ugliness and cynical and disaffected people. This was desultory and mired in stereotypes. Melodrama proves unsurpassable. Dowd looks like a caricature of a caricature. This was beguiling and earnest. There were pitfalls and a snitch. This was very bleak and it had grim inevitability and uncomfortable ambiguities.


Unacknowledged harm was done by famously terrible people with relative impunity. Paragon of virtue that Dowd wasn't. He did not compell observation of the law by moral force. The partner regrets his detrimental association with the shameless Dowd. No one is solid. He was brought down with gruelling practical effort. Things were desperately sad. Crisis point was reached and the subject is sombre. One is exhausted with this worthless man. This was a damning denouncement of Dowd. He defied all precedents of decorum and responsibility. There was no psychological complexity. Dowd was an apostle of the gutter who talks in punchy in your face style. He played a pernicious role and I hear no regret.


Things were chaotic and shaped by socioeconomic cirumstance. One must win, the other must lose, the tough will prevail; all that is his vision. There is no meaningful discussion. There was a shortage of social cohesion. Things need social transformation and Dowd got vicarious thrills and creepy obessions and tragic cirumstances. Allies turned meancing. There were compromises and wlisons and uneasy relationships.


It was 1992 when long laid plans to enrich himself led to a period of frustration, cynicism, opportunism and ill tempered falling outs. There was no beacon of good governance. This was without nunace. Dowd embraced corruption and worked with a drug lord with fervour. There were dubious types and humilating breaches of trust and insults. Dowd didn't implicate anyone but himself in court. He got 16 years but served 12 for racketeering, drugs and criminality. He's a celebrity criminal now.

Orion Relocation Services

This was inert and lacking basic competence. Red is a malign tormentor who has made Liz a stranger to joy. Baddies are relocated. Ilya is looked for. I'm confused. There are flashbacks and a baggy narrative structure. Liz brings tragedy on herself by a grim litany of dangerous reckless acts. This was meritless and singularly inconsequential. Ilya is played by Brett Cullen in the present day and Gabriel Mann is flashbacks. This was fantasically dull. Liz does illogical decison making and I've no idea what is going on. Liz learns a truth. No one is able to express themselves with any degree of sensitivity or intelligence. This was rubbish. Does Agnes even know who her mother is? This was irrefutably dull and woodenly stupid. Liz and co have bargain basement morals.


Best Lines:

“Who she's pretending to be.”


“Built on murder.”


“Was he looking for my mother?”

“He was before I shot him.”


“My nanny has to go.”

The ex husband's accent has changed from 1x01. There are pirates and quipping. There are no consequences for wrong behaviour. This show sucks.


Best Line:

“Take it easy John Wick!”

Grinning From Ear To Ear
Luke rants about Bruce's man pain. Lord he is vociferously boring. Why is Mary lunching with Sophie? What is the point of any of this if Ruby Rose is leaving? Jacob is thankless and probably racist. This was not absorbing. There is no grim sincerity. There are so many dark instances of Sophie and Jacob's crap. Has Jacob even seen Kate since he got out of jail? There is no protectiveness of Kate from Jacob.


Sophie's mom shows up. Jacob is incredibly confrontational and perturbing. Where is Tyler? Sophie's mom rages. Sophie is 28 and has 2 degrees. This was not commendable. Duela a niece of an ADA named Harvey is the baddie du jour. Sophie tries for earnest introspection. There are violent cirumstances. I don't care about Alice, Mouse or Mouse's pervert father. And I do not care anymore about Alice's dark history. She's super offended her obit is tiny.


I don't care about Sophie and Kate's emotional entanglement. Jacob is seriously nasty. Sophie has wistful yeanring. This ep was unexpectedly unpleasant. Mary more or less demands to be let into Kate's gang. Sophie's mom is neither happy nor supportive. If they kill off Kate, what is the point in season 2 of Sophie, Jacob, Alice or Mary?


Best Lines:

“Deranged leader.”


“I lie so much.”


“Lunatic with a box cutter.”


“Cowl cam.”


“Bat tech.”


“A tiny little blurb below the fold!”


“I blew a hole in him.”


“I have enemies.”


“Silent out of respect.”


“Side person.”


“Don't end up under a bridge visit.”


“That vile man.”


"Put me down psycho!”

Lebanon

Sam is such a jackass. John Winchester turned his sons into traumatised and angry and non fucntional people. Kurt Fuller and Jeffrey Dean Morgan guest star. This show is intensely mythologised and impossible to follow. Will this show end in inevitable doom already? John caused utter desolation. The 3rd Winchester brother goes unmentioned in this ep.


There is no Jack. He's not missed. Sam and Dean are incompetent and suspicious looking. Morgan isn't credited despite publicity for this 300th ep making a huge deal out of his return to the show. Their father was an ass and their mother was a lying, unloving, uncaring slut. There are stupid teenagers and 90s style VFX and John is time traveled from 2003 to 2019 causing an AU or something.


John beats up his sons and looks badly aged. John's death wasn't an intense loss. There are unforseen consequences to John showing up. Mary is a crap mother and a whore. All of John's abuse and Mary's abandonment of her sons is ignored. She was a hunter! She did not prepare her home for yellow eyes return! Nor did she warn her husband! And oddly her kin did not help him in his hunting. She and her clan are awful scum.


Sam ruins everything. Sam is so selfish. John's abuse of Dean is ignored to focus on Sam's man pain. FFS. John didn't do his best. Do TPTB hate Dean or something? Why is Dean using the name Campbell? Reality has changed. The brothers live impossibly restricted lives. In the AU Sam is a raw food chewing TED-talking lawyer and Dean is America's Most Wanted, again. FFS. TPTB do hate Dean.


Castiel shows up. Will someone fire Misha Collins' untalented show ruining ass already? Castiel is so boring and unemotional. This ep has no emotional imapct. Mary cooks dinner and does not speak much.


John was grateful for his brief chance at being brought back unlike that bitch Mary who was not grateful and ditched her sons to slut around. John does not recall meeting Sam and Dean in the past. Dean was wanted for assault, murder and credit card fraud. This was goodish. TPTB could only afford Morgan for TWO DAYS of filming. WTF does this show's budget go on?!?


Best Lines:

“Live in a secret bunker with an angel and Lucifer's kid.”


“I don't understand that reference.”


“Weird sidekick with the trenchcoat...kid with the dumb Bambi look.”


“Not super fond.”


“Internet famous.”


“Run a law firm and love kale.”


“I choose grateful.”


“I'm good with who I am.”
