Where in the World is Doug Phillips (Who is a Tool)? Part 11

thoughtful, you made my day.  That was outstanding.

The Music Man is one of my all-time favorites - I quote it all the time, usually Hermoine Granger's lines...

"What Eleanor Glynn reads is HER mother's problem!"  :pb_lol:

I see you have not yet gone down the Maxwell family rabbit hole. 

Ok, who hacked the Vision Forum Facebook page?

Beall milks these vague social media posts worse than most moody, hormonal teenagers do. 52 is the new 14, apparently.

@danvillebelle, Hermione *Gingold*, but yes!

”The Music Man” was the first big-screen movie musical I ever saw, and I still remember how elated I was when we left the theater. I was ten. My mom told me that she took us to the movie instead of a local professional stage production because she thought the spectacle of the screen version would be more impressive. Even though I adore live theater of all kinds, she was certainly right in this case.

The Music Man was always my mother's favorite musical. I never could figure out why she didn't see the parallels between Hill's rhetoric and the fear mongering homeschool gurus she bought curriculum and worldviews from, but I guess it turned out ok for Winthrop, so it would work for us, too. I've mentioned before that my dad did smell the hucksterism of DPIAT, though. So we just got a small time, more personalized cure-all system with a side of Gothardism.

Ye gawds, @thoughtful, you've outdone yourself, and just in time for the holidays! This is so brilliant. If Mayor Shinn were here, I'm sure he'd be bellowing "You watch your phraseology!"

Thank you for the spot-on funny gift, and happiest of solstice-time celebrations to all.

My first thought was that you were a victim of autocorrect, that the Potterverse is now so ubiquitous that, if someone types "Hermione G," phones and computers just fill in the rest - like magic!  😁

I think that the character of Hill is written with enough humanity that he far outshines Doug - after all, he is a character in a musical that we are supposed to like. His interest in, and kindness to, Winthrop is genuine from the beginning, and he falls in love. Although, we never do find out if he is really reformed by love, the usual show-biz trope. I have a hard time picturing him settling down in River City. Maybe Marian goes on the road with him!

Doug is just a series of facades over a greedy, selfish core.

@thoughtful, in the Matthew Broderick TV version, he and Marian open a music emporium at the end, so there’s hope!

I'm so glad you showed up on this thread, and thank you for the compliments - my day is made!

Now, after reading some BAL-zac, I shall practice my routine with the other ladies. One Grecian urn . . .

Dougie just posted a clip to Facebook titled "Playing With Amazonian Anacondas".

 

I'll cop to taking the bait :pb_lol: but admit it Doug, you just didn't like to see your FJ thread fall to page two 😉

Them snakes sure do grow. Those anacondas. Tighter and tighter.

Beall and at least some of the kids went to yet another Florida wedding right after Christmas.

I think it was for Catherine Walsh & Josh Kwekel:

The bride's insta is private, the groom's is mostly fishing photos: https://www.instagram.com/jkwekel/

Maybe someone can dig around on Facebook for any sight of Doug at the wedding.

I think you're right! It has to be a really old clip (unless he's somehow managed to get himself down to the Amazon again).

Hi, tool! Fleeced anyone for money or creeped on young brunettes lately?

Is he suggesting that we'll see the return of manly romps in 2020?  :mullet-nanner:

Beall mentions that she's reading Gretchen Rubin's Better Than Before, which is a secular self-help book. It intrigues me that she's not mentioning reading any Christian authors; she also reads Brene Brown, IIRC.  I think I understand this "season" of her life; there's a lot of yearning and wanting to get things really sorted. Often lots of changes and self evaluation happens when women are approaching menopause or have already arrived.  Plus, without young children at home and the youngest a teenager, Beall actually has time to read and isn't bogged down in books with the patriarchal stamp of approval for reading by good fundie women. 

I tried to read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People once, and realized pretty quick that I didn't want to be a highly effective person.

MY GREATEST CATCH. I'm dying.  They seem cute and happy though. 

Personally, I can't imagine Dougie  attending a not-family wedding where he didn't have a starring role - pastor, wedding singer, something like that.

I think Dougie looks at life the way an up-and-coming actor looks at a script; scanning to find out how important his role is, counting his lines, making sure he doesn't die in the first act.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
