About me



I've got vague notions of being more free. Basically earlier bedtimes, more time playing outside, and other stuff that I never seem to think I want, but actually makes me less depressed.

If you voted for anything of mine, I thank you heartily. That was a nice thing of you to do and it is appreciated. I try to respond to comments and they're always appreciated, even if I leave some of them hangin'.

Hope your day is a good one! Cheers.



Occupation: bartender

I'll just leave this here for you & hope one day you'll return to the site & check it out & geek out over it like I am.

I wanted to tell you that The Man Who Knew Too Much was remade by Hitch. The first, a B&W British film of the 1930's (I think) remade in color with Jimmy Stewart and Doris Day (Que Sera, Sera...Whatever will be, will be) in the 1950's.

Just wanted to let you know that I completed your 5x5 recommendations today by watching The Beauty and The Beast, which I really enjoyed - I hadn't known that there was a version besides the Disney one until you recommended it, so thanks for that as well as your other recommendations, I particularly enjoyed Dark City and The Country Girl, I actually forgot while watching it that Kelly and Crosby had also appeared together in High Society, they are two such totally different movies - as with the Movie Exchange, the 5x5 Project was a good way to discover movies I wouldn't have watched or had been putting off for to long - it was fun :)

I hope all is well with you and that you have been enjoying some good movies!

I seriously think my IQ dropped while I have been off Listal. I honestly can't edit my older lists for shit.

OK, well back to being totally useless today :P

Haha right on.

Hey, look, I posted a non-news item over on GotchaMovies. Oh, I'm sure you would have noticed, but since the film it involves is leaving Instant on Oct. 1st I thought I'd go ahead & mention it.

All right, off to see what the kiddo is whining about....

Dark City and The Matrix did have similarities, but I was surprised that Dark City was actually released first, I liked both movies but I think Dark City tells a smaller, more intimate story, which I enjoyed - thanks again for the recommendation.

Sounds like you had a great time at the Toronto film fest, glad you got up there to see it - maybe I will be able to go to one in Seattle or Portland one of these days :)

Nice to see you around here again!

Still incognito around here for now, but I couldn't help but check out your list & find myself pleased that you so enjoyed my recommendation. And yeah, the moment where you realize that all the various tangents he's gone off on have weaved in & out of the central story he's telling & not as tangential as they initially seem really blew me away too. It's brilliantly done & really deepened my respect for him as a comedian.

Awesome that you made it to TIFF too. I'll look forward to that list!

All right, back to lurking...
