Noir Saturday: While The City Sleeps

OGM!! Check this one out folks.  Have one of my fav actors(Vincent Price), and a very impressive director, Fritz Lang.

WhileTheCitySleeps

A serial killer is on the loose in New York City. Dubbed “The Lipstick Killer,” he has also strangely become the center of a power struggle between three division chiefs in a media empire. The directive from their inexperienced boss, Walter Kyne (Vincent Price), is simple: Whoever catches the killer gets promoted to executive editor. But newspaper editor John Day Griffith (Thomas Mitchell) has one distinct advantage in the form of crack reporter Edward Mobley (Dana Andrews).

Check it out tonight @ 11PM on TCM CST or 9AM CST on Sunday. Enjoy and check out the trailer.

Sonnet 80

O, how I faint when I of you do write,

Knowing a better spirit doth use your name,

And in the praise thereof spends all his might

To make me tongue-tied speaking of your fame.

But since your worth, wide as the ocean is,

The humble as the proudest sail doth bear,

My saucy bark inferior far to his

On your broad main doth wilfully appear.

Your shallowest help will hold me up afloat

Whilst he upon your soundless deep doth ride;

Or being wrecked, I am a worthless boat,

He of tall building and of goodly pride.

Then if he thrive and I be cast away,

The worst was this: my love was my decay.

Temple_Saint_Sava

Here’s today’s travel place, the Temple of Saint Sava in Belgrade, Serbia.  I see a trip to Eastern Europe in my future.   Enjoy

The Church of Saint Sava (SerbianХрам светог Саве/Hram svetog Save literal translation into English: “The Temple of Saint Sava”) is a Serbian Orthodox church located on the Vračar plateau in BelgradeSerbia. It is one of the largest Eastern Orthodox church buildings and ranks among the largest church buildings in the world.

The church is dedicated to Saint Sava, the founder of the Serbian Orthodox Church and an important figure in medieval Serbia. It is built on the Vračar plateau, on the location where his remains were burned in 1595 by Ottoman Grand Vizier Sinan Pasha.

Black Barbie Chronicles: Stereotypes Alive and Well in Korea Land

561e934962bfd

Haha!  Don’t you just love stereotypes!   I mean what’s life without al little racist stereotypes.  Anyway, this week’s posting is about some the stereotypes foreigners are subjected to here in Korea Land.  Like any good racist, I have to say, stereotypes come from somewhere! Haha! Just kidding. Anyway enjoy this post and have a good week.

Stereotypes are Alive and well in Korea Land

Yep, Korea is turning me into a racist. I think I was in the closet, but baby that door is flung wide open, and I’m wearing my racist flag loud and proud! You know that certain foreigners have certain reputations. Come on, and it’s not just me! This issue is a little bit deeper than, “ Oh, I learned in school that all Americans are white. Since you’re Black skin, you are from Africa.”

Now, there are certain types of foreigners that have certain reputations here in Korea Land. We all know that the U.S. military has THE reputation and naturally, that has caused a lot of tension between Koreans and anyone who looks like they are from America.

Try not to get your panties all in a bunch about what I’m saying. I’m just basing this on my thoughts, experiences, and first-hand accounts from others here in Korean Land. Not all of Korea is like these. There are, however, a few places where it is hard to for foreigners to live a discrimination-free existence. Places like Seoul and Daegu are really hard due to the heavy US military presence there. Why is it so hard to be discrimination-free? Well, because certain assholes have created this image to Koreans as what Americans are really like.

Now there are some Koreans who are open-minded to know that one person cannot represent an entire country. However, these people are few and far between. I can understand how hard it is not to make generalizations; especially since your country had been pretty much everyone’s bitch for a couple of generations! Naturally, because of the insensitivity, recklessness, and various behaviors of certain foreign jackasses, Koreans are holding some pretty deep prejudices against certain groups of foreigners.

As a result, being a foreigner, it can be hard to get a taxi at night, or the driver may/will overcharge you. It can be hard to get into certain clubs, bars, or business based on the behavior of the fuckers who came before you. You may have a landlord who might not fully trust you based on the jackass who trashed the last apartment rented to a foreigner.

I know, I know, horrible, right? Of course, these things happen in other places, not just Korea. I’m to you, America! I am sad to say that I have personally witnessed activities by foreigners proudly tarnishing an already tarnished image of foreigners. Who am I talking about? Well, I’m talking about these assholes:

  • The US military (mostly Army) jackasses who just want to whore around and party harder than the brothers from Animal House.
  • The loud, Jersey Shore types who drink beer like Probation is coming back tomorrow, and walk up and down the beach showing off their muscles while shouting profanities; the drunk and aggressive type.
  • The bastards who like to sit in Korean restaurants and catcall random women are walking by.
  • The assholes who like to get drunk, start fights in clubs, push other around, and trash random private property.
  • The jackasses who refuse to learn to say “Hello” in Korean, and insist that everyone speak English. If not then the Koreans are is ignorant ones
  • The goody-two-shoes that thinks they are doing “God’s Work” and insist on saving every Korean they come across!

You see these jerks, and all you can do is shake your head and lower it in shame. Shame that you will be judged based on these bastards. When these folks leave, YOU will be the one having to represent your country and your race to be the best ever. That’s a lot of pressure for one person; representing an entire race and country.
