Agent 54 is a regular guy. He has a sense of humor and an active imagination. Agent 54 works for the Nominal Secrets Apparatus (NSA) under the DORD (Department of Redundancy Department) as a Listener/Reader. His job is to read, view or listen to data collected by the NSA and determine if there is a risk to national security. Agent 54 reports to his bosses, H. Cuffs and Max (Agent 86). He doesn’t take his job too seriously because he knows he’s spying on regular people most of the time.
Agent 54 here again.Well, it was movie night again and I took my buddies Shamu, Charlie Tuna
and Nemo to see the new Aquaman movie.Flipper had date and met us at the theater with his new girl, Ariel (a.k.a.
The Little Mermaid). After the film we
kept our tradition of reviewing it and scoring it as we sat by the pool.Here’s our review:
Agent 54:As usual,
I’ll start the conversation.The new
Aquaman movie starred Jason Mamoa as Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Nicole
Kidman as Atlanna, Willem Dafoe as Vulko and Patrick Wilson as King Orm.It’s the story of how a half breed Human and Atlantean
takes his rightful place as king of Atlantis and saves the world by stopping a
war between the people of the sea and the people of the land.It had lots of very colorful fantasy CGI
images as well as some great beach and land scenes.I’m sure my friends enjoyed this tale from
the sea even more than me.
it has some great camo performances by the biggest star in the sea,,, namely
!I had more time on screen than you
did.I got to swim with Aquaman when he
was just a kid.
what!Neither of you had a line of
dialog.Until you get a speaking part,
you got no room to talk.
up!Nobody likes a bitter-jelly little
polka-dot guppy smart-ass who didn’t get hired for the movie.
polka-dot, I got stripes.
Agent 54:Knock it
off!Com’on guys.Were supposed to be friends talking about the
Charlie Tuna:Those guys got no class and parts of the movie didn’t have none
either.Who’s gonna believe the
beautiful Atlanna would fall in love with an ugly old lighthouse keeper?
lighthouse keeper wasn’t ugly or old when she met him.
Flipper:Whoa!You had the hots for the
were drooling over Mera for the whole movie.
Flip. He always goes for the redheads.Hey, what did Mera say to ya when you tried to talk to her on the set?
talked to me.
Ariel:Yeah, what did she say?
us, for cryin out loud!
Okay!She said “I gotta go now”.
Everyone except Ariel has a great laugh for 10 seconds
then Agent 54 speaks.
now, let’s try to focus on the movie.I
enjoyed when Atlanna told Aquaman “The people don’t need a king, they need a
favorite character was Black Manta.He’s
a badass human with a grudge who gets some Atlantean technology.He’s gonna kick Aquaman’s butt in the sequel.
Charlie, you ain’t got no class, you always rootin for the bad guy.
Nemo:If you and
Flipper had any class you would have gotten speaking rolls in that movie.The way I saw it, Sharks got all the best
rolls for real live marine life.
I are gonna get speaking rolls in Aquaman II, guaranteed.
believe that when I hear it.
Shamu:Whatever!You think you funny,
Okay, Well, that certainly was a spirited, if not insane debate. I think it’s time to vote while we’re all
still friends,,,,sorta.I give it 5
Starfish.I really enjoyed the movie.
and you whale turds is just jelly.
Starfish, you tell’em, Shamu.
I never said I didn’t like the movie.
give it 4 Starfish.I don’t think Mera
is really all that hot.
Agent 54:So, that’s
28 out of 30 Starfish so, I guess we really enjoyed the film.We recommend you go see Aquaman with some of
your sane friends.
Agent 54 here again. I went hiking in the Usery Mountain Regional Park, Arizona. It was a great day for hiking. Overcast and not too hot. The mountain has a band of light colored rock called "Tuff" that can be seen from all over the valley of the sun. The "Tuff" has a lot of green colored Lichen on it now because we had a lot of rain in October.
I hiked the Vista Trail in the Merkle Hills to start off my day. You can see the tall buildings of Phoenix in the hazy background.
Looking East, you can see the Superstition Mountains, Lost Dutchman's State Park.
Great view of Pass Mountain from the Vista Trail.
I hiked up the Wind Cave Trail and had lunch in the cave.
After a short hike, I could see my lunch spot.
I heard some rustling in the bushes and then saw a dear pop his head up. Can you see it in the middle of the picture?
Looking back towards Phoenix from he trail. You can see Camelback Mountain in the distance on the right side of the picture.
Getting closer to the Tuff band as I ascend.
The trail goes right up to the Tuff Band and then turns right toward the cave.
My Hockey Walking stick and one of the many small caves in the Tuff band.
Lots of green at this time in the Tuff band.
Looking back at the Tuff band from the edge of the Wind Cave.
Welcome to Wind Cave. The other sign says "Travel at your own risk beyond this point.
The cave is amazing. Notice the split rock in the lower right.
Looking to the right from the cave you can see the 70ft fountain in Fountain Hills.
Phoenix and Camelback Mountain from the cave. The two small buttes on the left side in the distance are in Papago Park.
Lot's of great views from the cave.
Green plant hanging from the roof of the cave.
Of course I had to hike past the silly sign so I could get this shot of the Superstition mountains. I was way up near the top the trail was all but gone by now.
Coming down I took a break in another small cave in the Tuff band.
A Forrest of Saguaro Cactus. This whole area is part of the Tonto National Forrest.
I had another great day on the mountain. There were so many wonderful views. I hope I captured some of the best.
