Just sayin'

I went to Netflix to add the movie Stoned (about the Rolling Stones' Brian Jones) to my queue, and Netflix suggested I might also want to rent the movie Too Stoned for TV, which is a documentary about Hip Hop culture and marijuana. Now as it happens I don't, but the capsule review of the movie at the website begins, "This blunt documentary explores...".

Blunt! I get it! I keep seeing things like these and have no idea if they're Freudian slips or sly insertions. A couple of days ago I read the phrase "in-depth reporting is thin on the ground these days".

Is that an oxymoron? On an unrelated subject you may like to know that I'm attending a special screening of The Final Programme at the BFI next month, with a Q&A session with the great man (Mike,not Jerry) afterwards. Hope you're peachy.

That's interesting! We never get things like that here.
