Such a night on drk will typically be boring WWII dox, then movies, - the later at night, the better they get. So tomorrow morning, at the ungodly hour of 4:15 AM, if I'm awake, I will be rewarded with Damiano Damiani's 1971 mafia film, "Confessions of a Police Captain". A rare treat, after so many repeats of "Django" as their token Italian cult alibi. Before that, they are also showing "Death in Venice", so the wait won't feel too long. I suppose I should thank drk, but unfortunatlely, we are going to lose that channel due to cutbacks. That leaves us with dr2 as the sole channel with high standards, wonder if the cult pix will travel over there...


They did a whole series of those Googa. You might be interested in seeing the follow-up:

Awful thing when that happens. I had a similar experience at a Tom Jones concert.

Going through season 1 of 'Star Trek: Discovery' now. I'm enjoying it. I like that it features interesting science fiction concepts as well as being a fairly intense drama. Downsides: the usual problem of pre-OS Trek looking more advanced than OS, Klingons are still dumb (and superstitious!) space vikings, and even uglier than ever.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?
