November 2008

Remember George Orwell (aka Eric Blair), writer of 1984? He’s one of my biggest heroes.

A guy who hated fascism, and wrote about humanity’s increasingly-growing “infection” of fascism; an infection which threatens us all. (Note that in his works, you could not cooperate yourself out of the fascism found in 1984 or Animal Farm. Violent resistance was really the only thing left to do.)

People who use Google Reader may recall that I had previously shared an item about George Orwell‘s blog. But I’d never actually bothered to blog about it. So I’m going to mention it now!

It’s pretty cool. They use George Orwell‘s actual diary. They set it on a 70 year delay. So, for example, since today is Nov. 30, 2008 (20081130), his blog would post his diary entry for Nov 30, 1938 (19381130).

The irony is that right now, his life is really boring. Basically all he “blogs” about is how many eggs he got from his chickens, or what crops are in bloom, or how much the animals cost here. Lots of agricultural stuff. The real exciting stuff wont start happening for a couple years I guess.

So anyway, many entries are simply, “One egg.” And that is it. Sometimes, “Two eggs.” At this point, I finally started noticing there were like 15 comments on the “one egg posts” (a “one egg post” is gradually starting to become a figure of speech of mine for something way shorter than it should be).

People are pretty funny. I like that they bothered to comment about “one egg”. After a “two egg” day, people talked about Fibonacci sequence conspiracies. Or people would complain, “this post is tagged ‘egg’, but not ‘one’!”. If chickens could think, I wonder what these now-long-dead chickens would think about their eggs one day becoming conspiracy theories in blog-comment conversations?

Anyway, today took the cake. Someone actually found a letter by Orwell (something NOT from his diary/blog) that related to the one egg posts and posted as a blog comment. Jesus Christ. People are frickin’ weird. And I love it.

Anyway, here is a link to today’s “one egg” post, with strange comments:

By the way — It says something about you as a person, if you can write 2 words about your animals, and have 15 people around the world discussing these 2 words 70 years later…. (more…)

(Summary written by Carolyn, pronouns changed by Clint, this may be messy..) So we saw They Might Be Giants at the 9:30 Club on the day after Thanksgiving. The show was sold out. The 9:30 Club website didn’t mention an opening band. It said doors were at 8, and TMBG was at 9. So we decided to leave at 8:15, then changed it to 8. Carolyn remembered last year when she went with Vicky & Kipp (Clint went to see Ween in Baltimore instead). There was a line to get into the doors. Since the show was sold out, we’d have to find a parking spot. When we got to the 9:30 Club, we found the lot indeed to be full. As we were driving around the block, we considered going to that other paid parking lot for a split second — until the guy running it blinded us with his stupid light. Fuck that. That’s twice we’ve chosen not to park there because of the light in our face. The line to get into the 9:30 club went around the block. We drove up to the end of the line, and Clint asked the people if they had tickets. The answer was yes. Clint had a hard time believing it, and asked a few times, until I was like “yes, they have tickets, it was just like this last year!” One of them was like, “It’s a sold-out show” So we turned around and parked in the last spot. I commented, “At least we don’t have a long walk from our car to the end of the line”. Small consolation. It wasn’t as cold this year as it was last year when Kipp, Vicky, and I stood in that line. Still, you’d think that a club that says “doors open at 8” would not make it’s paying customers stand in the cold for 2.5 blocks of line, advancing 6 squares of sidewalk every 3 minutes, a full 45 minutes past when these doors were suposed to open. 9:30 needs to send the hand-stamp guy down the line so everyone is stamped already when they present their ticket. This would move the line a lot faster.

Not sure what time we got in, or what time it started or anything. We got in, went to pee, and then when I got out of the bathroom, Clint was like “it’s really crowded in there.” I said “Well, maybe we should go in this way…” and then Clint suggested we go upstairs. So that’s what we did. We went up to the top level to the bar up there to get our drinks and then scope out a spot. Clint was like “Look, they have the stairs roped off so people could stand on them.” But it was a VIP area. But it was convenient because I got to have that spot right there by the rope at the top of the stairs, and I could actually see. Yay. The upstairs bartender made our drinks really strong. It was cool.

When TMBG came on, they said they were doing things a bit different. They were going to play Flood in it’s entirety, and then take a 20 minute break that would last about 19 minutes and then come back and play other songs. It was awesome.

Someone farted a couple of times, and Carolyn got a whiff of some bad breath a couple of times, but all in all, there weren’t any annoying people around.

During the 20 minute break, Caroln asked Clint if we should get another drink. Clint said something about driving so I said, “Well, considering TMBG is in my top ten, if not top 5 bands, can I get another drink and you drive?” Clint said “Get two drinks.” Carolyn got drinks while Clint held their space. Some pour soul was standing at the bar, and Carolyn squeezed in next to him. The bartender came around with the other guy-next-to-me’s drinks and pointed at me and said, “Two vodka 7-ups, right?” and Carolyn was like, “yeah!”. She turned to the poor soul and said “Wow, he remembered! I’m impressed!” Then Carolyn came back and told Clint about how the bartender remembered her, and what drinks she had ordered before. Carolyn glanced back at the bar, and that guy who she had squeezed in next to was still there! The bartender hadn’t even served him yet! She felt somewhat bad because that usually happens to her instead of someone else. But we got over it pretty quick — the drinks were really strong.

They played a bunch of songs, then went out, and then came back for an encore. So there were like 3 sets. 4 actually, but the last one was only 1 or 2 songs. The encore consisted of Fingertips. They also played She’s An Angel from the first album. Mark had said that that is a popular song, and they’ve probably played it at concerts and I just didn’t know that song. So, when they played it, I thought of Mark and how he was probably right about that. Also, they had a lot of fucking around during Particle Man. But it wasn’t boring fucking around (like Violent Femmes can be). However it was definitely the requisite musical masturbation moment (RMMM).

TMBG mentioned several times that they were playing the next night in New York, and they were playing the entire Apollo 18 album. Carolyn said to Clint she was glad we got the Flood album. Flood is way better. And we got all 21 tracks of Fingertips anyway! Tho it was kind of strange that the ended with Withered Hope (“sad saaaaack”), one of TMBG’s few sad songs. It was kind of a stranger bummer note to go out on. But hey, they went on stage FOUR times.

After the show, Clint was hungry, so we were looking around for some place to eat, and he was like, “Maybe we can go to Adam’s Morgan and get one of those jumbo slices.” I was like, “You know how to get to Adam’s Morgan from here?” Because I sure didn’t. Then Clint said, “Oh wait, didn’t that place burn down or something?” As it turned out, there was a jumbo slice place right on U St near 14th street, so we ate there. Clint got a gyro, and I got a jumbo slice of pepporoni. I knew to expect a big piece, but that piece was HUUUUUGE! It was like a half of a pizza almost!! It was crazy. I ate about a third of it, and about three bites of Clint‘s gyro. Clint ate his gyro, and the rest of my pizza (and regretted it). Carolyn kept starting to wrap it up for later, and Clint kept telling me to wait. Until it was gone. When we got home, we chilled awhile, and then watched The Life And Times Of Tim.

The setlist for this concert was considerable, and we know much of it. It is is posted HERE.

 movie cover
[IMDB link] [Netflix link] Gregg Araki‘s 7th movie, and his most optimistic, now that he is done with his Teen Apocalypse Trilogy (Totally Fucked Up, The Doom Generation, Nowhere). Yet despite its optimism, this controversial movie still only garnered a 5.1 on IMDB (3.2 stars on Netflix). (Factoid: I had forgotten that Araki also directed the amazingly-funny stoner movie Smiley Face, starring Anna Faris.)

PEOPLE: Gregg Araki directs. Kathleen Robertson (aka Clare Arnold from Beverly Hills 90210, also in Psycho Beach Party, Nowhere, and Scary Movie 2) plays the leading lady/main character. The two dudes are played by Matt Keeslar (Psycho Beach Party, Scream 3) and Johnathon Schaech (How To Kill Your Neighbor’s Dog, The Doom Generation). And… another movie with Adam Carolla in a bit part?!?!?

QUIRKS: This is a movie about polyamory. Most of Araki’s movies have some kind of sexual quirk — usually a gay character, as Araki himself is gay. This one is polyamory. This movie is not really focused exclusively on the sexual act of the threesome — like National Lampoon’s One, Two, Many — but rather on the three-way emotional interplay involved in a polyamourous relationship. And that’s really the focus of the whole movie.

BAD STUFF: It’s not a comedy? But the situations are so interesting that you might be smiling anyway.

GOOD STUFF: Finallya movie dealing with non-traditional sex that does it right!

None of the “everyone’s lives goes to shit / it doesn’t work out because they have sex not approved by the moral majority” — something that annoyed me about Boogie Nights; Kinsey; National Lampoon’s One, Two, Many; and pretty much every other movie I’ve seen that might involve threesomes, the porn industry, or non-traditional sex and relationship structures.

[highlight for spoilers] …And a happy ending! In an Araki movie, no less! A happy ending that the moral majority might not approve of — MAJOR SPOILERS NOW — she decides to permanently stay with both men in a 3-way relationship, after becoming pregnant. The credits feature a scene of a baby looking up from a crib at its mommy and two daddies — who then start taking her clothes off. They drop the the floor, out of the baby’s view. The end. Everyone’s happy. And in a way gay-marriage-hating people are bound to hate!

CONCLUSION: Taboo happiness is far more entertaining than normal happiness. Good stuff!!

RECOMMENDATION: If this were a movie about a guy and a girl… I would think it lame, and not want to watch it. But this is a movie about 2 guys and a girl. The situations are far more unique. I think this is one of Araki’s best movies. It should definitely be seen by the sexually/romantically close-minded/prudish/religious — just to make them writhe in their seats a bit and see what they could be missing. We both liked this!


Eve & Chris: “So, we weren’t crazy about Splendor because the alternative lifestyle didn’t really play into the plot at all. She could’ve been with one semi-unemployed guy instead of two and would have had the same plot. So it was neat that they had that arrangement, and I bought that the one guy moved in becuase the other one did, but the main conflict was about the rich-stable guy, and really, the triad was irrelevant to that exchange. // So I think that’s a pretty big one for us, and we like Seeing Other People better, because it was ABOUT lifestyle stuff.”

COINCIDENCE #1: (Splendor, Brutal Massacre: A Comedy) 2 movies within a week that had people going to the hotel room 333 (half of 666!).

COINCIDENCE #2: (Splendor, Just Friends) 2 movies in a row with scenes where characters romantically involved are talking to each other in a public place that has large screens where, on those screens, are the same people talking to each other.

COINCIDENCE #3: (Splendor, Wasted) 2 movies within a week or so that both unexpectedly had Adam Corolla in a small part.

FRIENDS’ RATINGS: Benj loved it.

“Thanksgiving Prayer” by William S. Burroughs

Thanks for the wild turkey and

I’d almost forgotten how much physical media can suck at times. I found a box of DVDs I got from last Christmas, skillfully hidden from myself due to construction. We sold our spare refrigerator to Gene & Heather, which caused me to clean the utility room, which caused me to find the box.

Of course, we need to catalog and backup all these bought dvds. But in order to do that, I need to pull the DVDs I already own in order to make sure THEY were catalogged too.

Of course, once I catalog them, I’ll need to store them in my media cabinet (I have 4, each holds about ~140 VHS tapes). Of course to do that, I need to see if there is room. Oh wait, which cabinet is which? I guess I’ll label the cabinets. While I’m here, I need to go through and throw away a few old tapes to make room. And also go through Carolyn’s tapes, and determine that they are “as good as blank”. (Uncatalogged AND full of shows that we now have on DVD anyway.)

And oh, I have some bought tapes that have not gone into my number tracking system. I’ll assign some numbers to them (I have free numbers interspersed throughout due to a renumbering project 8 or so years ago) and then insert them into the right place in my collection. But of course, as I’m inserting new numbers in between old ones, that means my cabinets fill. So I end up having to slide 10-20 tapes from each cabinet to the next. Finally I’m to the last cabinet, and it’s iffy as to whether there will be room for my dvds or not.

Meanwhile, I found 3 tapes in the wrong cabinet. I found a copy of a tape that needed to be numbered and put by the original. I found a few uncatalogged and unlabeled tapes. Apparently we still recorded VHS in 2003. (WTF? I thought I was done long before that when I started recording shows on my computer around 2001-2001.). I also found a video Carolyn had to make for a college (?) class, which she said was really embarassing. We definitley need to watch some of this sometime. I’d like to buy one of those VHS->DVD converters, now that they are the same cost ($50ish) as a video capture card was in 2000. I’d like to convert some of these. Right now a guy is converting some of my tapes to dvd for me, but postal mail is a hassle, and re-assimliating the data from his dvds is an extra step we would not need to take with our own stuff.

It will be nice to finally close out the VHS catalogs, since it’s been 5 yrs that some tapes have remained uncatalogged. Why? It’s inconsequential. Most of those shows have been available on dvd (or via other means of digital acquisition) for some time now.

But the VHS age wont be officially closed until I’ve gone through all my tapes, and converted anything “special” that only exists on those tapes. Home movies. Local stuff. Rare shows and specials. Movies that never came out on DVD. Technical video experiments. etc. And of course, I bought the entire Showtime mockumentary adult-comedy series Sherman Oaks on VHS for $50 or so on Ebay. THAT needs to be converted to DVD *badly*. I would say the ETA for being done with my last VHS tape would probably be 2015 or 2020. Le sigh..

Anyway….. Hopefully today I can finish dealing with the VHS tapes, so I can start dealing with all the DVDs which originally caused me to start all this again! (more…)

Free markets and competition essentially ‘force’ businesses into the best (economic) behaviors, because if they don’t do it, some other company will, and will metaphorically take their lunch.

It’s good theory, but it’s not reality. Not anymore. Initial economic theory never knew what today’s globalism was going to look like. The game of capitalism and free markets changes substantially from the 1800s world of limited markets with few people to use them, to the 2000s world of a market with an infinite number of suckers to buy whatever you want. There has been a subtle paradigm shift.

One can now make big money screwing over one’s customers, and new ones will replace them. Nobody will take your lunch, because if you can sell something everybody needs (bottled water), or even wants (cellphones), there’s a replenishing supply of tons of people willing to consume your product. If you get unpopular, you can just move to another country with fewer laws and sell your product there, possibly with a higher profit margin (fewer regulations) allowing you to make just as much money with lower-volume sales. Granted this is how it’s always been, but I feel like today’s scale of population and globalism has somehow changed the feasibility of bad behavior in a way that we may not yet understand.

The market force of the people has moved to a much slower speed — in the old days, if there was a shitty product, you’d tell the guy next to you at the market, and it would spread around the town in a day. They even used to have professional rumor companies (before slander laws) that would go to train stations and pass the bad word. Nowadays, it is different. While we have vast communiation networks that are unparalleled by anything mankind has seen, there are simply too many people on the planet for us to be as closely connected as we were in the small-town days. Even with the internet.

It’s doubtful that that kid in Iran is going to know what my problem with product X is. I may blog about it, but he’s never going to run into my blog. And in fact, if you criticize a corporation too harshly, they may sue you. And guess who is going to win in a legal pissing contest between a lone blogger and a mulit-national corporation? The game is stacked. But the fact of the matter is — that kid in Iran is never going to know why he shouldn’t by product X that I had a problem with. Thanks to globalism, a company can sell product X to anyplace in the world. That is a huge market. You could piss off 99% of the planet, and stil have 10 million customers. That’s not how it worked in the 1800s.

The market force of the producers and corporatins, meanwhile, has moved to a much faster speed. In the old days, if you failed in a market, you have to ride your horse to another town and try to drum up business again. Transportation was not cheap; we didn’t even have combustion engines or oil. Nowadays? Just sell it online, and the whole planet is your sucker. If you stop selling well in America — go sell your product in China instead. The cost will not be that much more; shipping corporations have created an economy of scale in transporting products that did not exist back in the 1800s. Even as a civilian, I can ship somethign to China for an extremely cheap price. Something someone in the 1800s could not have done.

Most of our economic theory (Adam Smith, and the “founding fathers of capitalism”) came out in the 1700s and 1800s, right? This was a time when even our founding fathers failed at adequately writing a constitution that still applies today. The constitution has been largely shot down, one amendment at a time, due to creative legal intepretation. Every amendment is now a razor-thin wire, barely holding up. The 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 10th amendments especially have been shat on. What happened?

Quite simply, the founding fathers needed to catch a glimpse of the future. They needed to see how the world changed, and how what they said on paper actually does not make total sense in the 2000s. They needed to be more clear about free speech, gun control, declaration of war — and perhaps how votes are counted after the 2000 Election debacle in Florida.

Now consider the founding fathers of economics. Similarly, they laid out their theory in a non-globalized, colonial world. The “Invisible Hand” of the market that we were taught about in school was actually supposed to be the invisible hand of GOD, not of market forces. (Though tTis may be the matter of some debate.) In other words, even when initially coined, the idea of an “invisible hand” that fixes the market was only believable if you believed in magic sky fairies (God) pulling the strings of our economy like a puppet. The fact of the matter is, if you take out mythical entities such as God, even the creater of the free market didn’t believe it worked.

Also, Adam Smith also believed that the rich should be taxed at a higher rate than the poor. Take that, free-market capitalists! I’m just mentioning this because a lot of people who think that a free market magically fixes everything also think that a Flat Tax is fair. A flat tax absolutely is not fair, and Adam Smith agreed with this.

So anyway — our constitution has largely failed because the GREAT men of the 1800s were not so great as to be able to see into the future.

By and large, I feel the same way about lassez faire/free-market capitalism. It was an idea proposed by GREAT men of the 1800s, and made a lot of sense at the time. But the ideas did not properly consider a future which none could have possibly imagined, and thus suffered some entropy when faced with a modern reality.

The founders of our constitution could no more imagine how much law (and the interpretation thereof) would change over the next 200 years than the early proponents (“founders”, if you will) of capitalism could imagine how much economics and the global market would change over the next 200 years.

Perhaps this is why the great Thomas Jefferson considered revolutions mandatory, happening on average every 200 years? Perhaps Jefferson had the humility to know that even his own enumerations of his own basic ideas could not possibly be refined to withstand he could never glimpse.

And I’m not saying capitalism doesn’t work. Free-market capitalism works for MARKETS. If I’m going to have a yardsale or a flea market or a farmers market, that is the system that it will work by.

But the whole planet is *not* one big MARKET. It’s something else. Call me crazy, but I’m going to call it a “PLANET”. A “MARKET” does not have INFINITE people. A “MARKET”, in old world understanding, was really limited to a particular locale and subset of people. Today the global “market” effectively *is* infinite, with a global population at record levels that are being broken every second. I feel this somehow changes the parameters of basic economic theory.

I’m not smart, educated, insightful, unbiased, or ambitious enough to write a treatise on just how and why everything changes, or to enumerate the methods by which these mechanisms occur. I’m not observant enough to see every gear turning, and to understand how every piece of the machine works together… I doubt many are.

But I do feel that what is happening in our society today is, in some ways, mirroring the fall of communism in the early 1990s. They simply faced their economic collapse 15 years earlier than us. They lost. And now we lost. America is no longer going to be in control of the world’s finances — the other leaders of the world have basically already decided this. The world has seen our ways as being largely wrong, and it’s time that we stop clinging to futile old dogma. Both with religion AND economics.

Even pre-economic crisis, I felt there were many things wrong about the way we were doing things. (Just look at the homeless, for example. Oh I forgot — they “don’t want” to work and chose this!) (Or spend a summer reviewing medical records and notice how it “costs” $500K every time someone dies, even though everyone who dies doesn’t have $500K.)

Neither the far-right system of communism or the far-left system of capitalism is going to take the world to its future. People need to wake up and see that everything isn’t merely a two-sided dichotomy. That is American false dichotomy thinking, and is also a cause of the “two-party” system.

I heard once that the Rastafarian god is capable of seeing issues from more than one (or two) sides at once. We should try to do the same in considering economic theory for the future. (more…)

(REDUNDANCY ALERT!!!!) Crap! I accidentally reviewed this movie twice. Forgot to remove it from my list of movies to review after reviewing it the first time. Oh, well. Let’s see what happens.

 movie coverI'd rather be watching TV![IMDB link] [Netflix link] Be careful with this one — there’s tons of movies called “Wasted”, even with similar descriptions at times. This is the 2006 version. They probably should have stuck with the “Farewell Bender” title, as that is more appropriate.

PEOPLE: Eddie Kaye Thomas, who is becoming quite well-known to Carolyn & I. He seems to be popping up in movies we choose to watch quite often. Kip Pardue. Adam Carolla. Marisa Coughlan (from Super Troopers). Josh Cooke (also in Young People Fucking, a movie we later watched). Also, Twin Peaks fans (!!!!) should notice that the priest is played by Chris Mulkey (aka Hank Jennings), who was also in Cloverfield — which we didn’t notice. (He also voiced a villain in 3 episodes of Batman Beyond.)

QUIRKS: A “coming of age”, 20-something film. Plenty of substance abuse, but this is not a party movie. This is based on the real-life experiences of the 2 writers (1 of which is also the director.)

I basically described this movie as a combination of The Wackness, SubUrbia, and Just Friends.

While I doubt many people have seen all 3 of those films, it really does describe the 3 overwhelming themes to this movie. 1) Appreciating and dealing with life and death. 2) Returning home to face your previous social role in your hometown. 3) Trying to find love but being placed in the “friend zone”. I am really surprised by how well this equation holds up.

BAD STUFF: Well, it is kind of depressing! This is a slow drama. Ouch.

It’s especially depessing if you consider how in the ending, [highlight for spoilers] everyone falls back into their original ruts at the end of the movie, basically changing nothing. Nor does Eddie Kaye Thomas get the girl. Which is no surprise, since the only time that happened was in Dirty Love, which was written by Jenny McCarthy, directed by her husband, and got a 2.1 or so on IMDB. :)

CONCLUSION: It was at times an emotional drama. I’m just not sure what lesson I took out of it.

I would rather revel in the individual 3 movies that I consider the components of this movie:

The Wackness – a better drama with better lessons about life.
SubUrbia – a better slow drama with possibly better dialog, and a more indie feel
Just Friends – a romantic comedy. While not necessarily better, it stars Ryan Reynolds essentially playing the same character and acting same plot as Eddie Kaye Thomas in this movie — but without the distractions of the other characters in Wasted (2006).

RECOMMENDATION: I wouldn’t recommend this to people who like the kind of movies I like. I’d recommend the other 3 movies instead.

#1: (Splendor, Wasted) 2 movies within a week or so that both unexpectedly had Adam Corolla in a small part.

#2: (Just Friends, Wasted) 2 movies in a row with people returning to the town they went to high school in, as well as scene/plots involving trying to get out of the ‘friend zone’ by dating a female friend they were interested in. Oh, and (more…)

 movie coverI'd rather be watching TV![IMDB link] [Netflix link] This movie is strangely rated 6.1/10 on IMDB (216 votes) — not too shabby considering how many movies I’ve enjoyed that are rated under a 5. This movie is only rated 2.5/5 stars (509 votes) on Netflix. So it has some mixed reaction.

PEOPLE: A bit of Chris Mulkey (aka Hank Jennings from Twin Peaks, also in Cloverfield), a lot of Eddie Kaye Thomas (from American Pie and the Harold & Kumar movies), Kip Pardue, and Jesse Jenson… And a tiny tiny bit of Adam Carolla (aka Spanky Ham from Drawn Together).

PLOT: Several friends return to their hometown for the funeral of a good friend of theirs, learning things about themselves in the process — sort of like Up A Creek without the fantastic camping adventure, Death At A Funeral without the comedy, or Suburbia (or Just Friends) without the funeral. :)

QUIRKS/BAD STUFF: A college coming-of-age cult comedy (according to IMDB keywords) that isn’t funny and is actually depressing. People drink and do drugs, try to hook up with girls who just want to be their friend, get shafted, get arrested, life sucks, everyone goes back to their rut, and nothing good happens to anyone.

Also, there are several movies called wasted. It’s really easy to get the wrong one. I’m just pointing out this is the *2006* one.

CONCLUSION: A realistic movie with real characters — based on some of the real-life experiences of the screenplay-writer — that makes many subtle points about life (life life). Eddie Kaye Thomas‘s character is just sad. I unfortunately have to give this 2/5 stars (Netflix) and 5/10 (IMDB), because it was entertaining, but really just left a bad taste in my mouth.

RECOMMENDATION: If you aren’t put off by the depressingness of it all… This is a decent drama. How IMDB can call this a comedy is beyond me. Netflix calls it an Indie Drama. A lot of people writing reviews for it either completely hated it, or completely loved it. Fewer people fell in the middle.

COINCIDENCES: This movie & Just Friends — we watched 2 movies in a row with people returning to the town they went to high school in, as well as scene/plots involving trying to get out of the ‘friend zone’ by dating a female friend they were interested in, which [highlight for spoilers] ultimately failed.

FRIENDS’ RATINGS: Nobody saw this.
