So my friends Phil and Jennifer moved right next to Central Park before Covid hit. They immediately decamped to their beach house to wait out the virus (yes, between them they are loaded), but they just came back for a week and I had to bike down and do some exploring with him.

I know most people hate to hear their voice, but it's 1000x worse for me. Ah well, people put up with me.

I had pointed out the cherry blossoms to them, so we went and hit them again.



Then he took me to his secret drinking place in the park he had discovered: this old tree that hung way out over the water of one of the lakes.



In return for him showing me his secret spot I had to show him one of mine.



Finally I had a 4 mile bike home along the Hudson river. Stopped to capture sunset through the clouds.



So now I'll go watch Petty's edit of the second half of the Hobbot movie, and he knows why I skipped out on it this afternoon.

It was McAllister.

I was watching the film, not checking the forum.  Funny, about half the scenes I have absolutely no recollection of.  Blotted them out. But this version was less annoying than the original, even if there's some things you can do nothing about. I can see why you couldn't cut out Azog, but was thrown for loop by seeing Bolg in the credits.  Where was that?

{{ McAllister- never heard of it. A blend mind you not a single malt, but I'll give you a pass, this time.

I didnt edit the credits, didnt seem worth it for the work for sake of a couple of drawings, though Bolg does briefly appear -he is the orc who kills Fili.
The big one in credits still is Radagast (Sylvester McCoy) who isnt in my edit at all.
I edited from the special edition so if you havent seen that then quite a few scenes, the Beorn stuff, the entire end funeral and crowning of Dain and a few other bits and pieces would be new to you. }}

Oh, it must have been Macallan. Quite a reputable Scotch I believe.

You sound fine to me Halfy Smile you got a 'happy' voice. There were more people in the 1st vid than Ive seen in the local area where I live.

the park was quite full.  People converge when the flowers are happening. And it was one of those great weather days that happen between lousy weather so everyone has to take advantage of it.

Great vids Halfy, I love the central Park ones. One day when this is all over I will visit New York, its one place which haunts my dreams. Very Happy Course when I last went the women folk were wearing bustles and Daniel Day Lewises were twiddling their moustaches.

We'll see how much is left after the virus has ravaged things.  With any luck things can get back to normal and NYC should only take a few years to recover.  But the park won't be affected.

Honestly though, I think London matches it.  Lance may be better set to pass judgement on that - having perhaps spent more time in NYC than I've spent in London, not sure.

Here's an interesting comparison.  Basically if you're a night owl, NYC is the place.  Otherwise I'd plug for London.

Without a doubt things will recover.

London has been through a ton of shit, some of it far worse than what is going on now, and gotten through it.

New York has been through plenty too and has come back stronger.

Was there a New York vs London question in those videos somewhere? I havent gotten around to watching just yet.

@Petty - Thanks. Slow recovery... had a few good days and then a few less good but much better than a couple of weeks back. Would be great if I could find out what I have/had!

There was no NYC vs London question in the videos, just Figgs stating that she really wants to visit New York and me saying it's not much better than London. Then I listed you as a cross reference.

Funny, this got me looking through accounts of NY vs London, and one London woman (unfortunately mainly interested in shopping) taking pictures of typical grimy dingy NYC streets and cooing about how beautiful it was and how everything looks like a film set.

Granted, there are some neighborhood streets that I'll coo over, but she sure as heck wasn't finding them. Batshit crazy, that one.
