Bandits (2001) – Filmsack Show Notes


Oh hi,

Thank you for the lovely dinner Mrs Banks. Please don’t cry. Mr. Banks could we bother you to set up the Monopoly Board? You da best Mr. Banks! Now remember what we told you. We aren’t like those horrible “sleepover bandits” that spend the night with a bank manager and then rob them the next morning. Nope, we’re just going to play a little game of Monopoly and we’ll be out of your hair. We’re the Board Game bandits!

Now hand me the car Mr. Banks (beat) because I’m always the car (beat) and I have a gun, now stop crying. Also, you are the Banker Mr. Banks because…. ‘duh.’

Oh, so you picked the fancy little dog. no no.. I almost picked the fancy little dog…but I’m sticking with the car. Ok, I’m rolling first annnnnd I rolled a 10…hmm…that lands me at jail…give me the dog…no… can be the car…. in jail…what? I know it’s just visiting! whatever…

I’m rolling as the dog…stop crying…your turn was the car and the car has already rolled. aaaand I rolled another 10! You know what…just give me the money…stuff it in this crown royal bag I stole from your liquor cabinet…don’t bother with the 1’s…c’mon hurry up Mr. Banks..

Alright, So thanks again Mr. and Mrs. Banks for a lovely evening. Oh look…their mailbox says “The Ibbotts” Boy did I get that wrong…oh well…I guess there are worst ways to spend a Saturday Night. Boom…TWIST ENDING! Epic long intro and done! Boom…give me my prize…what…it’s not a competition…whatever….keep telling yourself that loser.

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.

Miami Vice (2006) – Filmsack Show Notes


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.


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

Scripts Thoughts

playrandom mp3 bash script

A easily breakable bash script for playing Random mp3 files from recursive directories using MPV player.

[sourcecode language=”shell”]

# Play random mp3 files recursively in current directory or from a Specified Subpath in the users default Music directory
# Written in a Hurry: Brian Dunaway 2019, Feb 12.
# Requires mpv and access to /tmp directory


echo "usage: playrandom [-s]"

while [ "$1" != "" ]; do
case $1 in
-s | –sub ) shift
-h | –help ) usage
* ) usage
exit 1

if [ "$prevpath" = "" ]; then
playpath=`shuf -n1 -e "$playpath"`

# find it / sort it / write it
find "$playpath" -type f -name "*.mp3" | sort -R > /tmp/playrandom.m3u
# play it
mpv –no-video /tmp/playrandom.m3u
# remove it
rm /tmp/playrandom.m3u
# profit


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.
