The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi,

and now the final thoughts of a deer crossing a snowy road on Christmas Eve.

You know what…I think I could totally be a reindeer. Those guys have it made. Oh Man…I wish…I mean working only one day a year and then just hanging out with short pointy eared humans the rest of the time and eating cookies and…. hey…what’s that! It’s so bright…is that the sun? I thought it was like almost midnight. Well you know what? I think I will just stop right here in the middle of the road and enjoy this unexpected miracle sunrise….oh shit! What’s happening! I’m in the air! Did my Christmas Wish come true! Am I reindeer!? Look at me momma deer! I’m flying! Odd…why does flying hurt so much!? Perhaps if I flail and kick about really hard I can gain some altitude…nope…here comes the ground. ouch. Life is pain.

Well this is unfortunate. Perhaps the dream of being a reindeer was oversold by the deer media. Merry Freaking Christmas to me. Oh deer, I am pretty sure I broke every bone in my body. Hey, a human angel with flashing earlobes approaches. Perhaps she will heal me with her magical heal-y powers…nope…neck broken. Merry Christmas to all and to all a long kiss my ass goodnight.

No animals were harmed in the making of this intro. However, Earl dead.

INTRO

Oh hi,

Hold on a sec…how do you even operate this stupid old style cell phone…ahh… you flip this…and flip this… and boop “Yeah Hello, This is Detective “Sonny” Crocket of Miami-Dade PD. Patch me through to your SAC. Hello? Weird it sounds like I’m talking to someones crotch…Hello, if you can hear me…I need to talk to your SAC…. The Special Agent in Charge… oh good….he heard me.”

“Yeah hello, what’s my badge number and birth date? Listen, I ain’t got time for that…it’s 11:47 o’clock on Saturday night and Neptune is downstairs handing out booty slaves like an attactive bartender handing out Mojitos. That’s the hand we have been dealt.”

“What’s that? Hold on…I can’t hear you…Tubbs…C’mon man. I’m on the phone. You can’t stand next to me and make 3 and 4 phone calls while I am talking on my phone….It’s distracting…go stand over there….further…keep going…ahh shit. Listen SAC…I gotta call you back…Tubbs just went over the side of the building… HEY TUBBS! YOU CAN’T NEGOTIATE WITH GRAVITY!”

Stupid…talking while I’m talking. Now I really do need a Mojito.

Miami Vice (2006) – Like Trudy would say. “I ain’t playing.” also like a 2 hour starring contest set to music.

SHOW NOTES

Mighty Mighty Mullet

Meanwhile….Glaring at the club.

This club seems too hot to be wearing full body silver suits

“You got your tan in Miami.” – Sonny

What is up with 3? I’ll go with 2.

The guy getting the prostitutes is wearing Sonny’s TV suit.

2006 video phones.

I kind of dig this film grain look they got going on. Feel like I am watching it on a 19″ TV with OTA

Patch us through to your sack? Pretty sure I heard it wrong. Is that what Sonny told the Miami FBI Office?

2 phone calls at the same time on a roof!! No way man….Everything in this movie is either 100 miles an hour or a flat dead stare stop

at 11:47 o’clock on a Saturday night…that is the case we have been handed

What about Neptune!! It’s his lucky night. Lucky Pimping

How slow was Elonzo going that Miami Vices had time to get off the roof of a building and get their car and hit the highway and catch up with him.

You don’t have to go home. Hey, watch out for that Semi.

Roof top meetings, Highway Side Meetings, Parking Lot Meetings, Harbor Meetings.

Meanwhile, that don’t track.

Go-fast boats. GO FAST

Noooo…not the go fast boats…you bastards!

Hey…we need a reason to see a couple people naked. Weird Shower to Sex Scene…

“Tubbs…your place smells like the booty sex.”

That USB Drive has seen a lot of hands. I would for sure be Purelling my hands. A lot of people are touching the drive who don’t even need to touch the drive.

What is up with your interview (interrogation) room painting? That is a lot of teeth.

“You didn’t do time with us then you don’t do crime with us.” Sonny Undercover

“You must do that thing exactly.” “The thing we say” – Hair with glasses

Miami Vice should be called “So What’s In A Look Anyways?”

1 blip 1 plane

“You don’t like us finding your load.” Sonny

meanwhile in Cuba by the TRex hotel

Sleeping with the enemy…a very dangerous proposition.

Never conduct business in Cuba…instead it is always Mojitos and love making.

2nd shower sex scene.

Always such interesting shots. Everything is a landscape shot. Even the body shots

This movie is shot like Cigarette and Car advertisements you saw in magazines during the 60s, 70s and 80s. Kind of like a perfume commercial as well.

So is Chris Cornell her love making music?

Down in the mean Streets of Styrofoam

I’m watching you watching them…watching…dancing…music…watching

“Probability is like Gravity. You can’t negotiate with Gravity.” – Sonnie (Foreshadowing?)

Tubbs is worried I am in too deep.

Does the lightning signify anything?

“Try Paradise Trailer Park Near The Airport” – Captain

and the most ridiculous explosion of a trailer goes to Miami Vice 2006

Trudy has been through it.

Like Trudy would say. “I ain’t playing.”

Man, this movie delivered on the Miami Vice Vibe

The Panic Log

It’s been an exciting couple of weeks topped off by a few days of zero exercise. Here we are again. Panic’d.

I went to bed a few hours ago with sickness and death on my mind and not surprisingly I woke up with my heart racing and feeling confused.

Before i drifted off to sleep I spent a few hours questioning why my head felt weird…there…I said it…it feels weird…I can’t quite nail it down. Possibly a headache…some allergies most likely. Just a general feeling of bleh and inability to focus because of some pressure behind my eyes and in my sinuses. I’m a bit of a control freak when it comes to my ability to think and focus and when I lose that I freak out. Also, when I say focus I mean both with my eyes and my mind. I am having trouble with both. Which is typical of sinus trouble. Geez.

Currently, I am trying to avoid waking up anyone in the house. Another big day tomorrow and I don’t want to add to anyone else’s stress load. So here I sit, typing away into the night, trying not to panic all at once but instead allow just a little bit of anxiety to be addressed one irrational thought at a time until I can rest again.

I have built a toolkit of mental gadgets and processes over the years. Not every tool works every time. But if I fiddle with my panic with enough tools I can usually work past it without too much impact on my day to day life.

The one I am using right now is this blog. I already feel better than I did when I started.

Thanks for listening.

The Panic Log – 08/05/2018

Oh hi,

It’s a hot Sunday in August and I have not spent a lot of time outside this summer except for early in the morning when the sun first peeks out and occasionally as the sun sets.

Despite my limited time outside I have had some of the worst allergies this year.

Today’s panic attack was brought on by a heart palpitation while in the first few minutes of my walk tonight at around 8:30 PM. It was like a punch to the chest and gave me a bit of a start. In fact it felt just like when someone scares you all of a sudden. One big jump of the heart. Well it was enough for me to stop my fast pace and slowly walk back to the house. I was not panicking yet but I assumed I probably would if I had another bump like that. On the way back home I decided to look up heart palpitations on my phone to see if it was “normal” for one to hurt. I didn’t dig too deep. I have learned it is best not to obsess and so I stopped reading after a few results. But I did read enough to see what could cause them. One of them was a heart attack of course. They described it like a fist squeezing inside your chest.

I arrived back home and my nose was stopped up from just my short trip outside. I was thinking perhaps it could be something allergy related or gastrointestinal as I have had a lot of¬† thick mucus that has been causing acid reflux. Also, I have been drinking more diet sodas lately. I’m cutting that out right now. I took a Wal-Zan (Zantac) and turned up the A/C so that it would be a little less cool in the house. Sometimes cold air irritates my lungs and gives me spasms in my chest.

Yeah…so are my heart palpitations because of heart as is my worst fear or is it gastrointestinal or is it asthma related? Maybe I have walking pneumonia? A leaky valve? Hell who knows. I’ve been to the doctor for all of those things.

Anywho, I tried to take it easy and not panic. So I worked on some laundry. Then I had another weird “spasm” in my chest. Perhaps from the Wal-Zan? Perhaps a heart attack. Perhaps my lungs adjusting to the cooler air in the house.

Yep. Just another day of obsessing over my body until I catastrophize it to the level of having a panic attack.

Currently, I am sitting here typing up this blog post and hoping that I can settle down and go to sleep.

Will I walk in the morning? I am going to try.
