I still have HBO because I wanted to see Game Change. I thought it was damn good. Yes Moore nails Palin to the political wall. Julianne Moore will probably win a bunch of awards for her portrayal of Sarah Palin. I thought it was pitch perfect.
Were there ugly things about Palin that surfaced you betcha. I was going to read the book Game Change but I found it a bit boring. The movie was not boring and it wass not over the top critical of Palin either.
She looked beautiful, defiant and a pure rouge. I loved the movie and watched and recorded it. The critics wonder why the whole film focussed on Palin that is a good question. They should have called it The Palin Plan.
However, it was well done. You usually have to duck when two Jewish men go after your life story and worry will it be about revisionism. I think the movie was better than the book at least about Sarah.

To understand just what a heinous piece of propaganda HBO has produced on behalf of President Obama, we have to go back in time to paint a complete contextual picture. HBO announced “Game Change” in early March of last year. This was after a difficult year for the president, when his approval ratings were in worse shape than they are now. This was also a time when many believed, including myself, that Governor Palin would enter the 2012 race to challenge Obama.
In other words, it’s just a fact that when HBO decided to pull the trigger, the possibility was very real that Palin could become president of the United States. So what did HBO choose to do as a response? Here are the facts:

Customers reacted angrily when Netflix announced earlier this month that it’s hiking prices on plans that include DVDs and streaming, in a move that highlights the company’s shift from physical discs to online video.
“It is expected and unfortunate that our DVD subscribers who also use streaming don’t like our price change, which can be as much as a 60% increase,” Netflix said in its earnings release.
The company acknowledged that “some subscribers will cancel Netflix or downgrade their Netflix plans, [but] we expect most to stay with us.”
Okay, I’ve been a fan of and used Netflix now for two years. I have the unlimited streaming and because I love Jews, documentaries, black people, French films, foreign films, HBO and all things niche market I found a lot to stream. I got August to do a marathon watch before I have to decide. I am going for this hike, no I’m not. I checked and my present bill would go up almost six dollars to keep what I have. I will probably downgrade to something else and then change up to another Netflix package so that I can get my fill.
I might do extra DVDs for a while to get caught up and no streaming, while I will be caught up on streaming, then when I get caught up on my DVDs change to streaming or a combo. But I am trying to keep my bills down as I pay ATT for cable and high speed internet and that’s enough. So my advice to Netflix don’t push us to say “f off.”

Update: Heloise recently watched the HBO special on TV. It was shockingly accurate and did not paint Diane as a woman who just happened to do something bad.
No. This woman had high levels of alcohol in her blood, pot and was last seen buying pain killers in a drug store, caught on camera. Some have suggested that the combo more like a drug cocktail could have made this driver incoherent and able to drive for many minutes down the wrong way. The sad part is that the woman who lost two girls in the crash completely trusted this woman. Watch it for yourself if you get the chance. I am convinced of two things now: the family was ethnically Jewish and this woman was at fault completely at fault.
In case you missed it: (I started that one) A woman full of drugs and alcohol drove down the highway with a car full of kids driving the wrong way had a head-on with another car killing a total of eight people. Naturally her husband Dave Schuler (Jewish) is going to great lengths to defend what the toxicology reports have cited as high levels of toxins in her blood. So Dave and Diane Schuler (both Jewish New Yorkers) are villified and now HBO has made a documentary “There’s something wrong with Aunt Diane” the final words of a little girl killed in the crash. She killed three adult men in the other SUV and in her car killed herself and a three kids. HBO http://conchordswiki.hbo.com/documentaries/theres-something-wrong-with-aunt-diane/index.html
Dave Schuler paid for the documentary and Rory Kennedy (see photo, the daughter of Robert Kennedy Jr., is producting it: http://www.newsday.com/long-island/suffolk/diane-schuler-s-husband-paid-for-movie-deal-1.2142008
Here’s another link with a strong view to this as a suicide murder. And yes, his name is Daniel and he has a brother named Jay Schuler. http://www.longislandpress.com/2009/08/13/taconic-crash-schulers-brother-in-law-furious/
Here’s one comment from 2009 from someone who has been closely following and has some interesting things to say about Daniel and Diane:
The more i read about this case, the clearer it gets. She argued with them at McDonalds to get her kids their last favorite meal and let them play in the playground there since she was gearing up for murder/suicide. It was premeditated, she fed the kids, got her OJ mixer to go, and peeled out of that gas station with a death wish, she drove like a maniac until she was numb enough to not care. She must have told her brother and sister in law something in those phone calls that sealed her fate, she left the phone and with it all hope of being stopped or saved, she drove up the Saw Mill to the Taconic, turned around and came back to end it all. She was not confused, she was building up her nerve. The phone probably got dumped because the kids kept calling home and interferring with her death wish plan, as soon as she knew they were coming to look for her, as soon as the kids said what the road signs said, she went in the opposite direction, north, up the Saw Mill so they would be looking in the wrong place. She was not confused, she was still making premediated decisions to carry out the plan. Then she told her brother she was on Southern State Parkway on Long Island, come on, no matter how drunk you are you can tell the difference between the 2 mile long Tappan Zee toll bridge soaring over the Hudson and Southern State pkwy. She had gone through the toll literally 30 seconds before making the call. She didn’t crash into the toll booth and was able to pull over to the pull off on the right shoulder. The 4 or 5 right hand toll lanes there are all cash only, since they claim they checked the time on her ezpass, that means she probably went through tolls on the left and had to navigate across at least 5 lanes of toll plaza traffic to the pull off without hitting anything.
On page 10 of the police report, a witness describes travelling north on the Taconic at 1:15 pm and being cut off by the minivan ALSO TRAVELLING NORTH getting on the Taconic from the Saw Mill Parkway. This is right where the crash happened, about 200 yards north of the Saw Mill/Taconic merge. This means she went up the Taconic past the crash site, then turned around and got back on the same exit ramp in the wrong direction. She scouted the route! Probably saw a perfect spot to end it all and headed back down the road heading south knowing what was going to happen and where, there is a blind curve with a hill right at the crash site, no chance for the unwitting accessory to the crime to react evasively. There are two (2) turnarounds in that stretch of road, plus a lot of wide grass median and shoulder to change your mind if you wanted to.
This is not the ‘mommy’s a secret addict’ story like the media has jumped on the bandwagon with to no end, she was uniquely crazy and suicidal and had to know what she was doing. Those people know what happened and have been protecting themselves since the brother first called the police and sugar-coated the situation as ‘a possible medical emergency’ and the husband only can say ’she was sober when she left..” not my fault. CYA.
Also, the husbands story about the vodka being his is total BS. He drinks beer, very few men drink vodka as their drink of choice, especially when they are beer drinkers. Vodka is a chick drink.
I read the story in NY Magazine that said how Diane Schuler cut her mother out of her life completely since the age of 9, pretending she did not exist due to her leaving the family, even though the other siblings and her father did not and her mother reached out to her for a relationship, stating it was her choice to keep her away. That is a huge thing to hold inside for 27 years. Interestingly, the 27 year timeframe is relevant also, in terms of cosmic cycles. Anyway, I do think this is the elemental key to the whole story. The public photos released of her wedding are telling, how could she, or anyone there, not be thinking about her mother, who was not invited. How do you go through your wedding day holding that inside? Since it was her wedding day, everyone had to suck it up and it was all about her and not mentioning the obvious absence, the rest of the family would have invited her to such an event. Then having children and depriving them of their grandmother, and vice-versa. This pattern of controlling social situations and punishing people who love you most due to perceived transgressions only makes me believe the murder/suicide theory. Did she punish her husband and brother for something we will never know about? I think everyone needs closure on this case, I am on the side of the victims who feel there is much more to the story.
Was it was the husband having the affair or her? There was a wrong number dialed from her phone to a guy in Oyster Bay, only 10 minutes from where she works that morning. How coincidental that a random wrong number would go so close to home. Maybe the kids had the phone and accidently dialed a contact or recent call? She was left to her own devices when he was at work. Anyway, i think it was the kids who called their father, not her, and then the truth came out. Or the husband confronted her about this other guy and it blew up? He went camping thursday morning, she came up friday night with all the kids. What happened Thursday night?

People in my family watch it, don’t know why they like that crap, and have told me about some of the episodes. They preface their remarks with words like “I know you don’t like shows like that but…” and proceed to tell me about some of the antics. Jews obsession with the male phallus symbol among them. Sorry to say some black actors have also been apart of the show. Never watched it, never plan to. It shows you what Jews can get away with. It sounds like it should be an X-rated Hustler-type thing, but it’s not.
Before making her break in Hollywood, Hines worked as a waitress, television reporter and telephone operator, as well as a personal assistant to Rob Reiner when she moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting. Though Reiner did not play a critical role in her career, he would watch her shows when she began acting. Hines began her acting career by doing improvisational comedy at The Groundlings Theater. Among the people she studied with was Lisa Kudrow. She also learned to write comedy sketches, which served her well when working on Curb Your Enthusiasm, on HBO, as Larry David’s fictional wife, Cheryl. The show is written as retroscripting, in which the plot outlines are generally and loosely drawn and the individual actors improvise to create the dialogue.
“When the show first came out, people from Tallahassee thought, ‘Well, maybe Cheryl got married,'” she recalls of the show’s initial reception. “Sometimes, I do feel like I live two lives.”
Another source thinks that Bobby Jr and Cheryl are doing friends with benefits behind closed doors: http://www.politico.com/click/stories/1105/is_cheryl_hines_dating_a_kennedy_.html
In the film, Kennedy helps Appalachian families defend their community after a coal-mining giant proposes to gouge into a mountain.
The night before, Kennedy was with Hines at the Royalton for the HBO doc “Bobby Fischer Against the World.” They were also seen posing for pictures together in Aspen in January and were reportedly on the slopes together in Deer Valley, Utah, in December. Meanwhile, we’ve reported that Hines has been helping his actress daughter, Kick Kennedy, with Hollywood introductions.

I watched it last night and it was okay. I noticed that they used lots of heloise-speak in the dialogue that was a scream. They also used lots of profanity…lots.
They detailed the actual meltdown scenario but stayed away from the stock free fall pretty much. Bernanke and Tim and Paulson were the main characters. I recorded it and might watch again.
Bernie Madoff exposed:
I could not find any evidence at all that Ruth, Mark or Andrew Madoff knew about Madoff’s crime until his confession in his study on Dec. 10, 2008. Indeed, there are compelling reasons to conclude that they did not know, which I lay out in my book.
For example, consider that confessional in the study: if his wife and sons are his accomplices, what should have happened next? They should have packed their bags, emptied the bank account, gassed up the private jet and fled to some distant spot without an extradition treaty. They had the means and, if they were Madoff’s accomplices, the motive to flee – and none of them did. His brother has been on notice for more than two years that he is the subject of a criminal investigation, but to date, no charges have been brought against him.
Okay. So two Jews wrote a book and included Sarah Palin, and now it will be a movie? Do I have that right? I got it out the library but could hardly read it, it was so full of itself. The damn book was so full of shit that it needed a diaper!
WTF. It was pure junk, now it’s a movie? Here we go again, allowing Jews to rewrite American history. But you better not call it Jewish tripe.
It is based on the book “Game Change” but Sarah is a conservative and the book was mostly about Dems like Hillary and Obama? Is Sarah that good or do they just want to make fun of her?
While Julianne Moore is brushing up on her Alaskan accent to play Sarah Palin in HBO’s upcoming film Game Change, producers are going to need someone to play her former running mate, Sen. John McCain.
The movie, based on John Heilemann and Mark Halperin‘s bestselling book of the same name, is about McCain’s 2008 presidential run. source: http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20472632,00.html

There’s a new series in town “Tilda” done by HBO. It is all about film bloggers! Wow.
The title is from a woman’s name and she probably has only a single name like my moniker “Heloise.” I guess someone will get to me soon enough. I’ll wait my turn.
Here’s a quote from that link
Weird. Here I am, a member of the MTV Movies blog team, and I’m reporting on the news that HBO intends to launch a new series… about film blogging. I don’t have to watch it. I live it.
Kidding aside, this is something that’s happening. The series, called “Tilda,” is being developed by “Dreamgirls” and “Kinsey” director Bill Condon and Cynthia Mort, who developed the HBO series “Tell Me You Love Me,” The Hollywood Reporter reveals. The show will focus on a female online entertainment journalist with “a no-holds-barred style.” The description has drawn immediate comparisons to noted real-life reporters Nikki Finke, Anne Thompson and Sharon Waxman.
