Happy 4th of July From The Shattered Lens!


Happy Independence Day!

Obviously, this 4th of July is going to be different for a lot of people.  I’m not even sure how many counties are still going to be doing an official fireworks show and I know a lot of people aren’t going to want to spend all day outside, wearing a mask in 100 degree heat.  This is probably the angriest Independence Day in my lifetime and I know there’s some people who are even saying that it’ll be our last because America’s on the verge of collapsing.

Personally, I don’t think it’ll be our last and I think that, though it may not seem like it today, things will get better.  America’s been through tough times before.  If most of the people out there knew as much about history as they thought they did, they’d know that.

Now, myself, I have to admit that I love the whole ritual of fireworks.  I’m a Texan and I’m probably more of a country girl than even I’m willing to admit.  I mean, as sophisticated as I may try to be here on the Shattered Lens, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t own an American flag bikini and if I didn’t kind of get a thrill from the sight of fireworks exploding in the night sky.  In fact, since I’m up at Lake Texoma, I’m planning on spending tonight out on the deck, wearing an American flag bikini while watching fireworks explode over the water.  Of course, I’ll also be writing about classic movies while I do so because I love cinema even more than I love fireworks.

Anyway, here’s my point.  There’s going to be fireworks tonight, whether they’re “legal” or not.  A lot of them will probably be set off by drunk idiots in their backyard.  People have been locked up for a long time.  There’s a lot of frustration and a lot of people are going to be expressing that frustration by making as much noise as possible.  (I don’t blame the people, by the way.  I blame government officials who, instead of understanding people’s frustrations and trying to help them deal with them, have instead used this entire crisis to act like a bunch of petty authoritarians.  A little empathy goes a long way to convincing people to do the right thing.)

So, please, as a favor to me — GET YOUR PETS INSIDE!  KEEP THEM INSIDE!  Seriously, they’re going to be scared to death.  Every 4th of July, our cat hides underneath a bed and refuses to come out until after the fireworks have stopped.  Erin and I usually toss one of his kitty toys under there and he’ll usually end up playing with it until he eventually decides to come out.  It’s funny.  As much as we would worry whenever we saw Doc scramble under the bed, that’s where he feels safe on the 4th of July.  I don’t know if it’s the same for dogs but cats are all about finding a safe place.  Once they do, they can handle just about anything.

Also, please remember that fireworks may be fun to you and me but they’re not fun for people who have served in war and/or who are suffering from PTSD and who might find them triggering.  So, check on your neighbors.  Keep them in mind before you go crazy trying to recreate a combat zone in their neighborhood.

“But Lisa, you just said you love fireworks….”

Yes, I do.  But I love animals and treating people with consideration even more.

Anyway, stay safe out there!  Happy Independence Day from the Shattered Lens!

Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 6/22/20 — 6/28/20


Oh, what a week.

Foolishly, I assumed that the world would be able to basically re-open in July but, as June comes to a close, it’s obvious that is not going to be the case.  All of the big theatrical releases for July — Tenet, Mulan, that Bill & Ted movie — have been pushed back to August and, to be honest, it wouldn’t surprise me if they got pushed back again.  A lot of people out there are saying that we should just all stay inside until there’s a vaccine for COVID-19 but who knows when that will be?  Whenever I hear anyone say that we’ll have a vaccine in 6 months, I want to point out to them that I thought the country would be able to reopen in July.  There’s a lot of wishful thinking out there right now.

Me?  I’m wearing a mask when I go out and I’m being careful.  I’m practicing social distancing.  I’m washing my hands.  I’m doing everything that I know can be done.  That’s really all I can do right now.

Oh well!  This upcoming week, I will be taking a little mini-vacation up at Lake Texoma.  I’m looking forward to meditating and recharging and getting some writing done.  I’ll probably listen to a lot of Bob Dylan.  And yes, I’m taking along a few DVDs because reviewing movies is something that keeps me focused and centered.  Mostly, though, I’m just looking forward to taking a break from all the noise of the world.

There’s a lot of things happening in the world right now and I’m not even going to try to explain it all.  I’m far better at writing about movies than I am about writing about what’s happening right outside of my front door.  On the plus side, I can walk again!  I sprained my toe a week and a half ago.  I may be limping but I’m still getting around a lot better than I was a few days ago.  So yay for good news!

Lisa’s Week In Review: 6/1/20 — 6/7/20


It’s been a long week.  I’m currently limping because I sprained my big toe and it’s also summer in Texas, which means that the 100 degree day has arrived!  Oh well.  The first week of June is always unbearable, to be honest.  When you go from reasonably temperate weather to walking into a wall of heat every time you step out your front door, it tends to lead to a certain amount of creative lethargy.

A Quiet Memorial Day


(1946, photograph by the American Red Cross)

This morning, I saw a headline that read: “Amid Pandemic fears, America observes a quiet Memorial Day.”

How to observe Memorial Day has always been controversial.  Memorial Day is the day when we pay tribute to the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice.  To wish someone a “Happy Memorial Day” shows a lack of understanding of what the day is about.  Memorial Day is not a day for celebration.  Memorial Day is a day for reflection and gratitude and that is especially true this year.  Today is a day to honor sacrifice and those who lay down their lives to make both this country and this world a better place.

Postcard, 1917

Lisa’s Week In Review: 5/18/20 — 5/24/20


This week is kind of a blur.  Some of the country is kind of open and some of the country is kind of closed and I’m looking forward to seeing Tenet.

This is the first Memorial Day weekend in history that my entire family has not been able to gather together and that kind of sucks.  Hopefully, we’ll be able to make up for it in July.

On the plus side, this Saturday, I was a part of the official launch of the Scary Social live tweet!  Every Saturday, at 9pm eastern (that’s 8 my time), we’ll be watching a horror movie and tweeting under the #ScarySocial hashtag!  Follow @SocialScary on twitter for details!
