Final Post

This is my final post as I am off to the hospital once again for more Chemo and it’s needles to the left, needles to the right, staring into the valley of death dreaming of nurses in white clad uniforms

I am tired,very tired

Tired of hospitals

Tired of doctors

Tired of nurses

Tired of needles

Tired of chemo

Tired of life

I am tired, very tired and that’s it

Enough, let’s get it over with

 

Well in truth it  ain’t all that bad and with luck my blood counts will come back up I be singing

(Fame) I’m gonna live forever
I’m gonna learn how to fly (High)
I feel it coming together

Ah, ha,ha all horseshit of course, me and the Grim Reaper are on the best of terms, would I dream of cheating him. Why I even share a drink with him now and again

Card Party 1896

cards

Playing Cards (French: Une partie de cartes), or Card Party, is an 1896 French short black-and-white silent film by Georges Méliès. It was the first film in Méliès’ prolific career, and thus is number one in his Star Film catalogue. It is a remake of Louis Lumière’s film The Messers. Lumière at Cards, which was released earlier the same year. Along with Georges Méliès himself, his brother Gaston Méliès and daughter Georgette Méliès both appear in the film.

Synopsis
The film depicts a typical afternoon scene in a French garden. Three men are sitting at a table, two of them playing cards while the third smokes and reads a newspaper. The man who is not playing cards calls over a young girl and has her fetch a woman with a bottle of wine. He proceeds to pour glasses for himself and his friends. After drinking the wine, the man reads a story out of the newspaper causing his friends to laugh. The film lasts roughly 67 seconds.

Two men are operating a ‘dog factory’, using a device that they call a Dog Transformator. A man brings three dogs into their shop, which they purchase from him. They place the dogs one by one into the machine, which turns each dog into a string of sausages. As their customers come in, they are then able to select the kind of dog that they want, and the machine changes the corresponding string of sausages back into a dog.

He also appeared in films with Gloria Swanson, Colleen Moore, Marion Davies, Constance Talmadge, Norma Talmadge, Mae Murray, Blanche Sweet, Bebe Daniels, May McAvoy, Madge Bellamy, Viola Dana, Marie Prevost, Alice White, Billie Dove, Mabel Normand, Corinne Griffith, and (going back to 1910) with Mary Pickford.
