Although he DID have a strange tendency to throw out the word "Excelsior" from time to time. Could never quite figure that one out.

Ah, Tourette Syndrome.

SO WHAT'S ALL THIS GOT TO DO WITH RACISM IN GONE WITH THE WIND!?!

 

Oops, sorry, wrong thread. But wasn't my indignation in bold impressive?

 

Okay, here's a tie-in:

"Mammy, why didn't you have my breakfast ready until now?"

"Because I didn't wanna rush more."

Maybe you were not woke.

Isn't there a face under the word "before."?

Looks a little like the "beast" in the modern version of La Belle et la Bete.

Can't quite tell. I read the synopsis and am in doubt. The entity I remember looked something about the size of a computer tower, but round with a little knob on top. It was suspended in air and was able to glide around at will. When a new person should enter, the entity would approach and scan. This would not be an android, right? An android is something that look human but isn't. Is that right? Anyway ...

I prefer to call it the new abnormal.

Precisely.  Though there is nothing "new" or "novel" about it.  Just abnormal.  It is your typical frenzy.

The anti-Mt Rushmore armchair activists should focus their efforts on getting Crazy Horse’s monument in the Black Hills finished instead. In the 90s, while enroute from Minnesota to Oregon, we went to Mt. Rushmore three times and the monument was always under construction. I think it’s still under construction.

No, you're thinking of Nomad, in The Changeling.

I, Mudd was "I am not programmed to respond in that area..."  

(And okay, so I DID have to look up the Nomad ref.  True geeks don't usually have to. 🤓  )

It looks a little like what I woke up beside just before I swore off coconut-flavored rum.

The "before" version reminds me of The Fantastic Four's "Ever-Lovin' Blue-Eyed Thing."

I viewed some scenes from this episode on Utube and have more or less concluded that this is not the one.

Thanks, though.

That's from one armchair to another?

Use the rocks to make music like early man.  Just don't keep them in your overnight bag:
