got a repost going because my 2Q taxes will be due shortly and the Summer movie season begins. since it is #TBT I want to throw it back to principled accounting and assassinations...
I watched The Accountant last night for a second time. Truly an entertaining, interesting story that was well written, acted, directed. The only blip for me -Raymond King’s shoes.
King was a good dad, it was the one thing he got right. Probably had great insurance coverage, but when he put his feet up to reminisce about what got him to his position there was no soul on his soles. Not even backyard fodder much less the wear of work. This was a missed opportunity to further differentiate between the detail-oriented finisher and the one who has been given everything as a gift.
Intelligence Superheroes are desperately needed in the good ol’ US of A at the moment, or they are due their due, rather. I enjoy and am grateful for the freedom to finish my popcorn & thus offer up the following fellowship-seeking-sequel-thriller that should be in the works.
Jason Bourne (JB) vs. The Accountant (TA)
Do they team up or hunt one another down? Maybe they have a similar origin story as military kids? Yeah, they beat each other up as kids. OOOH wait - same dad, different mother! I am hunting for some goodwill…
So possible plot, story, thoughts;
JB, unable to forgive his past pain, is now addicted to oxycontin-codone-oin-entanyl supplied by one of TA’s cartel clients. To break his addiction he busts into beast mode removing the cartel underlings to find the source of the supply.
Meanwhile TA is hired by a rogue, do-gooder Senator to track down the Black Ops money being wasted by the Government. The Treasury Sect’y is involved somehow, maybe as a producer.
TA uncovers a BlackBriar-esque Paypal scheme, JB switches to ApplePay, there’s a shootout at Starbucks, Amazon drones get involved.
What’s my point? I don’t have one. I like popcorn-finish-worthy spy movies and this is how I avoid #Syria news and walls of coal and the fact we have a chemical weapon problem in the heartland of America.
I will assume the opioid factories will be the next tomahawk targets. Empathy, not aggression is a better road to recovery. Let’s get to work, account for our principles, so we can finally put our feet up.
Our cat Walter snores. He cuddles up, purrs, slowly blinks ‘I love you,’ and as he snoozes the snores whistle a soundtrack to his dreams.
Listen closely. Hear more than what is there. This is a wonderful podcast about the GOT sound design.

It really is fun to hang out in the gym and workout and train clients and discover new ways of doing things...both by doing and watching.
My Youtube channel will unveil video evidence of my get-in-shape goofiness every Monday along with some random uploads as they strike my fancy.
I am hoping to echo great exercises and information presented by folks that I enjoy learning from as well as offer up some twists and innovations based on practical experience.
Most important - Get in motion and make it a beautiful day!
I get it. I’m married. That shouldn’t automatically sign you up for couple costumes. Especially when your spouse has to Google search possibilities after denying the ultimate couple costume...
if only to be dressed in layers on a cold eve🤓
be aw3some today!
1. shout out something for which you are grateful
2. move a muscle for someone else
Just had a wonderful conversation with my mother about the fear, vulnerability and safety issues she faces everyday simply because of her gender.
*Then listened to her wonder aloud why my cats are scared of her*
She started the conversation by asking me, “what do you do everyday to insure your safety?
1. Put my glasses on
2. Put my seatbelt on
3. Aware of my surroundings/exits
Blessed to be always surrounded by strong women. They help shape my worldview because I have no comprehension what people who are non-white males go through day in and day out. The mental, emotional and physical struggles are daunting.
Her list. Her list scares me, saddens me.
What do you do every day to insure your safety?
I offer up a request to anyone with access to Adobe products, may you please create a logo stating, “Bod Light / Workout Responsibly,” If you choose to accept this limited time offer I promise to use it accordingly and give credit where credit is due.
This is just one of those ideas that got thrown around this week with all the rest. Staying highly productive rather than hopeful is the only way to be…pro-active.
The viewpoint of Ross Rossan as seen through the lenses he keeps is worth noting. He updated my aging process today as I seek to help my agent earn 10% of that Union work winnowing its way into the great state of Michigan.
Per the title – a realization that I have been in front of a camera or behind a microphone for twenty years and needed a boost to my memory that you must create every day. Make your own way by adding even the smallest of pieces, using the slightest of effort knowing help is there when you lead with humility.
Grateful for the folks in the service department of DODGE who took care of me this AM and all those TIGERS who are going to use their talents this eve to put on a show worthy of Ball Park franks!
Use it. Or lose it. Faith. Works.
