Try The Farcical Flavored One

Mousie!

This is the ONLY book and movie we would ever dream to endorse with the Mousie’s cracker-dusted paw of approval when it comes down to an honest-to-goodness gut-bustin’ good laugh at the funeral and cemetery business.

WHAT, you say? You would be quite correct, generally as there is absolutely nothing funny about them, unless you are deliberately setting out to make the story fictional and farcical.

 

 

C J managed to get her hands on a first edition printing of the book, so she has yet to read it.

Certainly she’ll never risk THAT copy just for reading. She’ll need to buy a regular copy to do that.

Nope. It is on the shelf as a collectible only. No touchy.

We digress. Here’s a taste of the show…we see it’s possible to stream or rent it, which is a great thing. Buying the actual video may be much more difficult, however.

A poke at the popular and growing giants like Forest Lawn.

If you’ve never seen the movie “The Loved One” (1965) you are missing out on a real treat. Based on the book by Evelyn Waugh, it is a star-studded folly of foolish and fantastic funeral and cemetery characters, blowing everything you ever imagined about that realm completely away, replacing it with new improved exaggerations, and a generous seasoning of silly interpersonal drama…in the end you shall leave sated in your lust for laughter, we think. 

 

If you came to see stars, JUST LOOK AT THAT CAST!!!  Holy cow, kids!

Yeah, even Liberace! AND sooooo many others. Many who were just beginning their show-biz careers in 1965. It is a treat, trust us. On the merit of the stars alone.

They really don’t make movies like this anymore. Which is a darned shame.

It’s all just so ridiculous, but that’s why we loved it so much.  The little break from the real world helps us to stand back and realize that we cannot always take ourselves so seriously. Life is no fun when you do that.

Eastern Lightning

Eastern Lightning, the Church of Almighty God was created because of the appearance and work of Almighty God, the second coming of the Lord Jesus, Christ of the last days. It is made up of all those who accept Almighty God’s work in the last days and are conquered and saved by His words. It was entirely founded by Almighty God personally and is led by Him as the Shepherd. It was definitely not created by a person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. God’s sheep hear God’s voice. As long as you read the words of Almighty God, you will see God has appeared.
