Happy Good Friday!

I have today and Monday off, because England is an explicitly Christian country. Nominally.

To kick off the long weekend, we’re going to watch Dr Zhivago tonight. Wish me luck.

The image is Craiyon’s notion of “weasel watching television seen from behind”. I had to try this prompt twice. Each try yields nine images; most of them were real nightmare fodder.

I know the picture the AI pinched for this – it’s an image of a weasel licking its nose. The tongue has rather gotten away from the AI here and appears as a sort of white growth, but this was the most explicable and least disturbing of the eighteen pictures.

I’ve got to elbow my way into the MidJourney beta somehow.

You might want to try Leonardo.ai as well. It’s different from Midjourney, but does some pretty good stuff once you understand what it wants.

Dr Zhivago! Make a pot of coffee 🙂 I saw it in 1967 when it finally made it to the little college town where my widowed mother and I moved so she could go to college. She and my older sister and I went to the late showing, and when we came out of the theater, it had SNOWED! Enough snow to make everything sparkle and magical. So naturally we walked home in the snow—about a mile. Then I had to walk back the next morning in the slush and get the car. Mom bought a jewelry box that played Lara’s Theme, and my sister still has it. It’s a sweet memory.

I just realized what time it is, so you are already watching the movie.

Ah, Lara’s Theme. Thank you for that memory!
Now I have to go get a copy.

Doctor Zhivago is one of my favorite palate-cleansers after my steady diet of bad horror and scifi movies. Beautiful people, terrible (but not TOO terrible) villains, and a great story with a bittersweet ending- what’s not to like?

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
