Is the Year 2017 a Movie Directed by David Lynch, Sam Mendes, or Both?

Rose Arianna McGowan
I guess 2017 could have also been directed by Robert Rodriguez, too, come to think of it;-)
Jesus/Rose/Planet Terror?
Annette Carol Bening was born on May 29, 1958 in Topeka, Kansas and is the wife of Warren Beatty.
Chris Knowles at 'The Secret Sun' blog told his readers at the start of the year to take note of significant anniversaries this year of past years that ended in Se7en and that was some real good advice in the world of cosmic puzzles and connecting the pieces of that puzzle.
He also mentioned to look out for siren/mermaid themes, which is why I included Spacey signing 'Beyond the Sea' out of a film called 'Beyond the Sea', where Spacey plays Bobby Darin.
My mother told me years ago that she named me after Bobby Darin, but she spelled my name Darren instead, for some reason.
Before I started writing this post I was visiting my mother and asked her again if she named me after Bobby Darin and she said that she did because she really liked Bobby Darin and when her and dad were just going out she got tickets from her workplace for a Christmas present to see him at Her Majesty's Theatre in Brisbaneand they were in the front row and he kept looking at her while he was singing.
Too much information mum, I'm sorry I asked her again now, as I didn't know she was ever in his real-life presence.
I will never be able to hear 'Dream-lover' again without that thought in my head now.
But, whether I'm the rose
Of sheer perfection
Or a freckle on the nose
Of life's complexion
The cinder of a shiny apple
Of its eye.
I gotta fly once
I gotta try once
Only can die once, right, sir?
Ooh Γ’?¦ love is juicy
Juicy and you see
I gotta have my bite, sir!
So get ready for me, love
'cause I'm a "comer"
I simply gotta march
My heart's a drummer
Don't bring around a cloud
To rain on my parade!

A dame to kill for?!
Years ending in se7en?
"The Blue Velvet soundtrack was supervised by Angelo Badalamenti (who makes a brief cameo appearance as the pianist at the Slow Club where Dorothy performs).
The soundtrack makes heavy usage of vintage pop songs, such as Bobby Vinton's "Blue Velvet" and Roy Orbison's "In Dreams," juxtaposed with an orchestral score inspired by Shostakovich. During filming, Lynch placed speakers on set and in streets and played Shostakovich to set the mood he wanted to convey.
The score makes direct quotations from Shostakovich's 15th Symphony, which Lynch had been listening to regularly while writing the screenplay.
Lynch had originally opted to use "Song To The Siren" by This Mortal Coil during the scene in which Sandy and Jeffrey share a dance, however he could not obtain the rights for the song at the time. He would go onto use this song in Lost Highway, eleven years later."
"After a car wreck on the winding Mulholland Drive renders a woman amnesiac, she and a perky Hollywood-hopeful search for clues and answers across Los Angeles in a twisting venture beyond dreams and reality."
I just hope 2017 ends better than David Lynch's last offering,
'Twin Peaks: The Return'.
Although Robert Rodriguez seems rather optimistic about the future as he is working on a movie to be released in the year 2115.
I'll have to catch that one in my next life, so I hope it will be worth coming back for;-)

Mother Earth and Plastic Really Don't Go Together Do They?

Sometimes as individuals we feel overwhelmed when we see stories like this one and feel like we are just drops in the ocean when it comes to world problems like this.
And the irony here is you are right, because it's all the little drops in the ocean like us that have caused it in the first place, so it's drops in the ocean like us that have to work together to fix it.
Even our old paper money is plastic now ironically 
We have to vote with our plastic when making purchasing decisions about buying plastic:-)
A million bottles a minute: world's plastic binge 'as dangerous as climate change'
If we don't soon wake up to this plastic problem, then we could be in for some really dark nights on planet earth and I'm sure that mother won't be happy about that;-)
It's hard enough already to "just keep swimming" in this world without having plastic in our path, too.
Octopuses come ashore in dozens and crawl up New Quay beach in Wales
No wonder the octopussys are crawling onto the beaches this October.
Happy Halloween.
