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 😉

“Tighter and tighter”

”me and the anaconda”

 

oh Doug. It’s been since 2003 I followed your mesmerizing bizarreness, thanks for just being you.

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.

      I survived ... Ish. I'm all moved again, another 1500 miles from where the cats and I were living before. I'm in the new apartment, and kitties are adjusting well. I've only cried 6 times since Saturday! #progress.
      By the way, sorry about the summer logo swap taking its sweet time. Real life was a little too much and it got forgotten.

      A happy summer solstice to all northern hemisphere FJers! And a happy winter solstice to all southern hemisphere FJers! (I know it's already Monday is Australia, so I'm late for most of you.)

      ETA--Oh! I just checked, and the winter solstice is at 1:31 PM on Monday, June 21 in Eastern Australia Time. So, for once the time zones worked in my favor. I'm not late!

      I'm so angry at the Bishops right now. Shit like this is why I left the Catholic church. They play politics so blatantly.  I hope this convinces more people to leave.

      My grandmother came from a town in Missouri of (now) population ~14,500 and 8 Baptist churches.  Not counting all the other denominations, that's just the Baptists.  
      MY grandfather came from Drimoleauge, Ireland which has a current population of ~450 people (not a typo) and 1 church and 5 pubs.  
      If I get a time machine take a wild guess which ancestors I'm going back to visit?  I'm not social, don't enjoy bars, and prefer to imbibe at home but sitting in a pub has to be better than being Godbothered to death by people pretending they don't drink.  
      Fun unrelated fact - Martin Luther spent so much time on the toilet he had a desk built so he could work there, and would take meetings while actively pooping.   He also wrote letters to people with vivid descriptions of his poops.   That should make everyone feel a little better about their work place and emails.
