"KUNG FURY Official Movie [HD]"


Published on May 28, 2015
SWEDEN - watch on http://www.svt.se/kung-fury

"Kung Fury is an over-the-top 80’s action comedy that was crowd funded through Kickstarter. It features Kung Fury, a Kung Fu renegade cop who travels back in time to kill his Nemesis, Hitler. The film features nazis, dinosaurs, vikings and cheesy one-liners.

"The campaign that was launched in December 2013 was backed by more than 17 000 people who together gave more than $630 000"

This short film (30 min.) has more action and satire than films four times its length. I give it four stars.

"Police, minority relations discussion at forum Saturday"

From The Journal Times.com:

May 27, 2015 5:04 pm  • 
"OAK CREEK — A community forum being held Saturday by the League of United Latin American Citizens of Wisconsin will include a panel workshop aimed at improving relations between minorities and law enforcement.

"Called 'Police and Minority Community Relations,' the panel discussion will take place from 9 to 10 a.m. Saturday at the Milwaukee Area Technical College Oak Creek Campus, 6665 S. Howell Ave., Oak Creek.

"The goal of the workshop, explained facilitator Yolanda Adams of the Urban League of Racine & Kenosha in an email, is to collectively arrive at solutions to improve relations and build trust between community members and law enforcement.

"Panelists will include longtime Racine activist Morris Reece, Denice Nelson, and Theonita Cox. The event is free and open to the public.

"Other topics being discussed during the forum, which runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., include education, health and immigration."

Not exactly convenient for the inner city populations of Racine or Kenosha to attend.

"The Luft-wafer: Ice cream cone named after Adolf Hitler on sale in India sparks anger in Germany"

From The Daily Mail.com: 
  • Germans are outraged by treat named after Adolf Hitler
  • Lack of Holocaust education in the country means the snack isn't shocking
  • The ice cream cones are readily-available across India
  • German newspaper Bild labelled the cones a macabre publicity stunt
"Even for the most dedicated of ice cream lovers this sweet treat may prove a little hard to swallow. Unbelievably a brand of ice cream cone is readily available in India which is named after Hitler. It’s difficult to fathom what the Nazi leader may have in common with the crunchy snack, but Hitler’s name is splashed across boxes of the tasteless delicacy which is hawked across the country.



"Meanwhile the cold eyes of the killer stare out at ice cream customers from the side of the packaging.

"In some instances he appears in cartoon form in a Swastika-shaped top hat with a jaunty red bowtie, which is somewhat at odds with his furious expression. 

"Other more sombre packages depict him in full military regalia with almost photographic realism, looking very out of place next to an ice cream that's almost as big as he is.


"But all the boxes of cones have the notorious moustache on display.

"A lack of Holocaust education in India means that people on the sub-continent know little about the Nazi leader, and consequently Hitler-themed pubs and restaurants are not viewed with outrage.

"But back in the country that struggles to shake off his murderous legacy 70 years after his death, it is a different story.


"News of the Hitler ice cream cones provoked a furious response on websites calling for the brand to be withdrawn.

"One spectator in Berlin, said: ‘There is taste and there is tastelessness. The people of India should be made aware of the terrible crimes committed by him.’

"German newspaper Bild labelled the ice cream cones a ‘macabre publicity stunt’, while several Twitter users branded them ‘tasteless!’"


So everyone thought Hitler escaped to Argentina, when all along he'd been making and hawking ice cream in India.

It's Sad, But As I Get Older, I Think Differently

After a long day on the golf course, I stopped in at Hooter's to see some friends and have some hot Wings and ice tea.
 
After being there for a while, one of my friends asked me which waitress I would like to be stuck in an elevator with.
 
I told them "The one who knows how to fix elevators". I'm old, I'm tired, and I pee a lot

"Mayor proposes 30 percent salary hike for Friedel"

From The Journal Times.com:



"RACINE – City Administrator Tom Friedel would see his pay increase by 30 percent over two years under a contract extension proposed by Mayor John Dickert and Deputy City Attorney Scott Letteney

"Under the proposal, Friedel’s current annual salary of $99,237 would climb to $115,000 on July 13, 2015, and then to $130,000 on July 13, 2016.

"Making the pitch for the increase before the Finance and Personnel Committee on Tuesday, Letteney said Dickert said the reason for the request was two-fold: to put Friedel’s salary in line with city administrators in similar communities and to make the salary for the position competitive."

As of this posting, there were 48 comments posted on the Journal Times story, all but one against the raise.  I hope they all voted and voted against Dickert.  It doesn't matter, though, because this is a done deal.  At a time when we're repeatedly told that the city is broke, this spits in the face of those who lost streetlights or other services.

Friedel's already getting $100K per year and a city car.  This is horseshit, but Racine will eat it.

Poll - Do You Look Forward to Madame Zoltar's Blogs?

Hello, my sweet peas and sour pusses!  How are you?  Did you have a good Memorial Day weekend?  Memorial Day started out wet, but ended up a glorious day.  I read that we hit 80 degrees that day.  We (Señor Zanza, Junior, and me) spent the afternoon grilling out and hanging out in the backyard.

We have a regular old charcoal grill.  Junior, of course, wanted to set aflame the briquettes in the grill.  First, though, Señor Zanza had to tediously arrange every last briquette.  (I kept thinking, “They’re going to be ashes in an hour,” but I kept my mouth shut.)  Junior then soaked and soaked and soaked and soaked the briquettes with lighter fluid.  Then he went around one more time just to be sure.  He threw a lit book of matches into the grill.  I believe that the resulting fireball was visible in Milwaukee and set off nearby earthquake detectors.  That’s my boy. 

I can hardly wait for his summer vacation.  I haven’t told Junior yet, but I got him a summer job with a local lawn care company.  When times are tough, everyone has to kick in.  Señor Zanza, of course, always has all the money he needs.  Where and how he got the money is his business. 

Of course, my judgment might be colored by the fact that Señor Zanza insists upon paying half of all our monthly bills, plus rent.  Do you know how much a teenage boy eats? Señor Zanza pays for half of that and the teenager is not a blood relative.  The Señor has brought nothing but goodness into our household.  So, I don’t care where he gets the money.  In fact, I don’t want to know.  The less I know, the less guilty I’ll appear if something is amiss.          

I must say this: Señor Zanza has never brought anyone to visit our home.  He says that’s for our protection. When I push him on it, he says he wants our home and us to remain safe from certain elements.  That’s as far as it ever gets.  He’ll say no more.

I must admit that I do feel “safe” in his presence, yet this old gal can hold her own against the best.  Señor Zanza and I have a complicated relationship, but he appears to be a good role model for Junior.  As longs at that continues and he causes no trouble for us, I like having him around.  Sometimes, I like it a lot.

Following this blog (up above) will be a poll concerning me and my blog.  Please pause for a moment to take it.

Hey, here’s a video featuring “Animal sound Man:”


What a riot at parties and funerals.

Thank you all, my dears, for reading my blog today.  I love visitors and I love you.  Let’s take care of each other.

Who knows what no one else knows? MadameZoltar@jtirregulars.com

Enjoy the warming weather, my loves, even if you have to dodge a rain drop or two.  [That statement is not valid in the southwest region of the United States of America.]  Floods, storms, tornadoes and wind have marked this spring.  Let’s hope summer is a little better.
