pickering-on

This is the young tabby-tortoiseshell/brindle cat who got herself stuck on a fence repeatedly last night. She’s with the Pickering Animal Services shelter now. Please keep an eye out for missing cat posts/posters that might match her! (We’ve been calling her Tad, so, #TadTheStray #straycat #foundcat #pickering ) (at Pickering, Ontario)

The North American Premiere of In Dubious Battle will take place on Monday, September 12th @ 9:15am during the Toronto International Film Festival (x)

Set in the orchards of California Valley in the dirty ‘30s, Steinbeck’s tale follows two young idealists from “The Party” who are appalled by the orchards’ terrible working conditions and set out to organize the fruit pickers. Having arrived from out of town, Mac McLeod (Franco) and Jim Nolan (Nat Wolff ) are met with skepticism and some outright hostility when they first suggest unionizing. Most of the pickers simply want to work and get paid, even if they are being mercilessly exploited. Mac and Jim realize that their progress depends on convincing local elder Al Anderson (Vincent D'Onofrio). He’s a hard nut, but could be won over after Mac helps his daughter-in-law, Lisa (Selena Gomez), when she goes into labour. Surrounding the two activists is a cast of eclectic characters with varying loyalties, among them the ruthless orchard owner (Robert Duvall), who is determined to crack down on any strike action.

Franco goes right to the heart of Steinbeck’s novel. He captures the intense strife between embattled workers and their entrenched opposition, while placing personal relationships against the larger picture of Depression-era politics. This is a meticulously detailed film, fuelled by righteous outrage.

As of right now, Josh is NOT on the released list of scheduled guests attending the premiere.

I thought @sixpenceee would like this… In 1976, the Arkansas highway department bought a stretch of land for a new interstate and found a grave of an unknown child. They avoided building on it and placed a headstone & chainlink fence around it. Local legends vary but most say it belongs to a baby girl from a family of poor strawberry pickers who fell out of her highchair and onto a fallen knife (circa 1890). Her grave reads     “The Unknown Baby Girl: In death she belongs to all of us.”  

She peaks my passion.
She’s my principal passion peaker.
In the past, I’ve picked peaches with my peaker.
And she’s a pretty productive picker.
Her poker shows promise.
Her petunias produce profusely.
Her piano playing is pretty.
But, from my perspective,
she’s most proficient at peaking passion.
