Discussing a non-profit org to benefit IndieWeb and the indie web

Playing catch up on some of the sessions I wish I’d had time to be at in person.

There are several ways of doing the non-profit thing in this venue. Many of them don’t bring a lot of additional benefit however. One could set up a side foundation to help on the fundraising and spending side, but as a group, I suspect we’re more than fine for right now.

Directed by Lawrence Trilling. With Billy Bob Thornton, Nina Arianda, Ana de la Reguera, Tania Raymonde. After a brutal loss, Billy decides to formally take on Julio Suarez's defense, but before he can go back to court, he has to get his team back together first.

Somewhat muddier plot than season one. This episode wasn’t as compelling…

Directed by Lawrence Trilling. With Billy Bob Thornton, Ana de la Reguera, Tania Raymonde, Diana Hopper. Billy McBride is reluctantly pulled back into criminal defense when his friend's 16- year-old son is arrested for a double murder.

📺 "Goliath" It’s Donald | Amazon

Watched "Goliath" It's Donald from Amazon
Directed by Alik Sakharov. With Billy Bob Thornton, William Hurt, Maria Bello, Olivia Thirlby. The beginning of discovery unearths a startling new piece of evidence that threatens to unravel Billy's entire theory of the case.

Hurt plays a terrifically creepy dude here and he’s perfect for the role, but holy crap, what a bizarre an unexpected end of the episode.

📺 "Goliath" Game On | Amazon

Watched "Goliath" Game On from Amazon
Directed by Bill D'Elia. With Billy Bob Thornton, William Hurt, Maria Bello, Olivia Thirlby. The judge gives Billy only a day to make a compelling offer of proof before he dismisses the lawsuit.

Watching the credits a bit, I can see the experience and power behind the show and why it’s so solid. Bill D’Elia is great with this kind of material.

I still feel a bit left out about Billy’s major backstory, but suspect it’ll come along any time. Whatever it is, it almost can’t live up to what his prior self was compared to who he is now.

📺 "Goliath" Pride and Prejudice | Amazon

Watched "Goliath" Pride and Prejudice from Amazon
Directed by Alik Sakharov. With Billy Bob Thornton, William Hurt, Maria Bello, Olivia Thirlby. Billy scrambles to get his wrongful death lawsuit into court by any means necessary.

Okay, I think I’m hooked. There’s a nice driving force behind the plotline here combined with some great characters.

What a gut punch at the end of the episode though. I won’t give things away, but I would have guessed that the actor was too big in stature to have gone that way. Wow!

📺 One of Us (2017) | Netflix

Watched One of Us (2017) from Netflix
Directed by Heidi Ewing, Rachel Grady. With Etty, Chani Getter, Ari Hershkowitz, Luzer Twersky. Penetrating the insular world of New York's Hasidic community, focusing on three individuals driven to break away despite threats of retaliation.

A painful documentary to watch. It’s fine for communities like this to exist and even flourish, but they should not be so insular so as to force people to live within them and deal with tremendous abuse and lack of choice.

Directed by Lawrence Trilling. With Billy Bob Thornton, William Hurt, Maria Bello, Olivia Thirlby. A burned-out attorney gets a second chance for redemption when he agrees to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the biggest client of his former law firm.

A nice little series opener. I can get into this.

📺 "This Week" Episode dated 17 June 2018 | ABC

Watched "This Week" Episode dated 17 June 2018 from ABC
With George Stephanopoulos, Stephen K. Bannon, Karen Finney, Rick Klein. Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist; roundtable discussion with Rick Klein, Karen Finney, Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (D-N.M.), Matt Schlapp, and Greta Van Susteran;

Definitely the fluffiest of the morning shows today. In all this morning there was too much featuring of Trump administration officials blowing fluff and pushing blame without taking any stance toward leading on the situation.
