Notes from the Ol' Factory

Madeleine schmadeleine; I've got garbage trucks.

Passing a garbage truck on the way to the subway this morning, I was reminded of my childhood aversion to that familiar garbage truck smell. Actually, as a kid I was hypersensitive to odors in general, and the garbage truck was one of the worst that I encountered on a regular basis. I was transported back to my less than idyllic childhood by that same, sickening smell this morning. The smell of a New York City garbage truck hasn't really changed in the last fifty years. I guess, ultimately, despite the changes in our consumption patterns, the basic components of our trash are pretty much stable when it comes to smell.

I don't know how to describe the garbage truck smell. Acrid perhaps, but more complex than that. Not "funky," though funky things are certainly a component of the final bouquet. Not really pustulent either. There's even a touch of the cloying, but for the most part it's an undertone. Ultimately it's just that garbage truck smell.

There were plenty of other smells that bothered me, but I could avoid many of them. Alas, some of that avoidance went counter to the normal pursuits of childhood.

I'm no Augustine and I'm no Rousseau. The juiciest confession you're going to get out of me is that as a kid I hated the circus. In fact, I only went once, to the Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus at Madison Square Garden (though I always thought the announcer on the radio ads was saying "Barnumum Bailey"). I must have been about five or six, and my mother took me. But I didn't stay for the whole thing. I demanded to be taken home, despite my mother's protestations that I should give it a chance. I was so sickened by the smell, the combination of animal odors and those of animal excreta, that I couldn't enjoy any of the acts, not even the clowns. So my mother relented and took me home. I didn't have such luck with "The Sound of Music" at the Rivoli theater, unfortunately, perhaps because it had nothing to do with odors, so that time I just went to sleep.

I also hated the zoo--the zoo odors, that is. I only went to zoos a few times as a kid. Once, on a class trip to the Bronx zoo, I kept my distance from the cages as the rest of the kids went up to gawk at the animals (just imagine it!).

But could it be that the same hypersensitivity to things olfactory also played a part in making me a foodie? I hadn't given it any thought before, but smell is indeed an essential component of flavor, and surely a heightened sense of smell would also give one a more nuanced sense of flavor. Food for thought, and much more pleasant that remembrances of garbage trucks past.

It surprises me (but it shouldn't, really) how a childhood in NY can resemble in many ways a chidhood in Milano, Italy…

Pete, do you have Asperger's?
Seriously, look into it. Finding out that I was Aspergian changed my life. I better expectations of myself now, and I have become a wealthy CryptoCurrency miner.

The premise is pure monster horror - the cataclysm after these monsters have invaded is on a global scale, it's a high-concept monster movie works by simply narrowing it's focus...survival. 365movies
And just as the human characters (what about the monsters? We'll get to them) try to muffle out the sound by shuffling sand along the floor and making their own home quiet enough to walk around, director Krasinski (who also co-stars and writes) with writers Bryan Woods and Scott Beck keep a tight-knit, all-frills locked specifically on tension that just keeps on building up and up until the ladder just can't be seen any more.

Krasinski however isn't afraid to assume you already know an outcome by opening the film on the 90th day of the invasion clearly avoiding the manic-day-one tactic (where we can probably guess a lot of bad stuff happened), no, he approaches the subject with experienced characters. Paths have been set with sand, cars have been abandoned, and his house has been completely sound proofed, with carpets, sand set like stepping stones and the family only communicates by sign language. 365movies
Krasinski plays a competent, intelligent, desperate family man who tries to keep things together in his little kingdom (an abandoned farm house) instantly knowing that even the most negligible dropped clanger will attract terrifying toothsome, long-armed creatures with avocado -shaped skulls which are entirely composed by inner-ear architecture and teeth morphing their heads to hear even the slightest of sounds.

Are they aliens? Are they vampires? Or possibly alien vampires (if you want to go creepy)? If indeed the characters had abstract conversations, maybe they'd wonder what they're being hunted by but instead they can only express the barest essential dialogue in order to survive as long as possible. While he pays off as the caring rather rugged survivalist keeping a slight fire ready for a beacon signifying survival, meanwhile his pregnant wife (Emily Blunt) is a rather obvious symbolism of hope for the future she also tries her hardest to keep the rest of her family in check. watch Avengers Infinity War online
There's a slight everyday quality to this family that happily allows for you to invest more so in their journey for survival. Though their vulnerability is heightened just that little bit more and also enriched at the fact that there's a child on the way (a newborn that doesn't quite understand the importance of staying quiet) and what they must do in the situation when Blunt is just about to have it.
