Fairy godmother?

Poster by Luke Dacey for the movie The Usual Suspects

I am watching The Usual Suspects on YouTube. This silly TV version has dubbed out the swearing.

One of the classic, idiotic dubs is “fairy godmother.” Fairy godmother? Fairy godmother?! I am pretty sure the fairy replaces the F word. I am not sure about the godmother part. I do not know the movie that well, line-for-line. Co—ucker?

This reminds me of the edits in Die Hard. One is “Mr. Falcon,” which came up on a Conan episode, part of quite a funny segment.

By the way, I was recently banned from Twitter for describing someone, a politician, with the word whore. One of the hall monitors at Twitter HQ did not like that and promptly banished me from the kingdom.


Lotsa fires out there


At first, ɪ ᴛʜᴏᴜɢʜᴛ ꜱᴏᴍᴇᴏɴᴇ was cooking ᴄʜɪɴᴇꜱᴇ or having a BBQ. Then the smell became much more potent and noxious. Smoky air from forest fires tend to pollute the skies a few days every summer.

I have closed the windows in my apartment until the haze diminishes. I love having my windows open, even in the winter.

Thankfully, the smoke forecast for ꜱᴇᴀᴛᴛʟᴇ is looking better, though we — meaning the ᴘᴀᴄɪꜰɪᴄ ɴᴏʀᴛʜᴡᴇꜱᴛ — could certainly use some on-shore flow — air that comes off the ᴘᴀᴄɪꜰɪᴄ ᴏᴄᴇᴀɴ — mixed with precipitation and minus any lightning.
