Thanks for starting a new thread, Kenan.

KitCat, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:14 (thirteen years ago) link

It is a new day. It is the first day of the rest of our lives.

KitCat, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:16 (thirteen years ago) link

So, the secret bar with HBO had zero patrons last night during The Sopranos other than me, all pints for $3 (had a few Stellas), and a heavily tattooed tiny-gal bartender, and neither of us had eaten in a while so we ordered up a pizza. Nice setup.

Eazy, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:16 (thirteen years ago) link

I have been in a trashy/great movie mood ever since I saw Grindhouse. The first thing I did was re-watch Pulp Fiction. Last night I re-watched Carrie -- yes, again. How is it that movie holds so much fascination for me? It's not even the tittays, and that's saying something. I've seen it a dozen times, and it never gets stale.

kenan, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:18 (thirteen years ago) link

It was really hard not to watch the Sopranos last night now that I have cable again, but I need to get through the first part of this season on DVD first. Entourage made up for it though.

jon /via/ chi 2.0, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:18 (thirteen years ago) link

Oh man, I don't feel like hauling my ass into the worker's center this morning because I have to leave in an hour and a half to go to a meeting and I would be more productive at home but I just realized that I was supposed to come in last Wednesday since I missed Tuesday to go see WAoVA and I just totally forgot about it and blew them off. LE SIGH.

xp - Kenan, I would be really... worried about you if the main draw of the movie Carrie was the "tittays," considering the frequency and the context thereof.

Jenny, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:19 (thirteen years ago) link

Way to spend an evening, Eazy.

Jordan, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:20 (thirteen years ago) link

Julia and I got through the first part of the season -- well, she got all the way through it, I got close. I got to the point where I just didn't want to watch it any more. It was kinda bad.

kenan, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:20 (thirteen years ago) link

I would be really... worried about you if the main draw of the movie Carrie was the "tittays,"

Yeah, but remember there is that title sequence where nothing horrifying has happened yet at all, and it's just slow-mo girls' locker room. Very sexploitative.

kenan, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:21 (thirteen years ago) link

And even the opening shower scene, pre-bleeding: soft music, slo-mo closeups of miss Sissy soaping her boobs and the insides of her thighs. It's hot, don't tell me it ain't supposed to be. It's setting you up in a cruel way, but it's still hot.

kenan, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:24 (thirteen years ago) link

That's what I'm talking about. The sexploitive locker room scene that culminates in Carrie White being utterly horrified by her period and being pelted with feminine hygiene products by her schoolmates. There is about three minutes of boobs in that scene, followed by ten minutes of confusion and cruelty. The whole point is the juxtaposition of the soft-focus sexy shower nudity with the scene's horrific ending. If you were somehow able to divorce that three minutes of hotness from the rest of the movie so that your main reason for watching it was that three minutes of set-up, I would be worried.

Jenny, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:27 (thirteen years ago) link

I'm not saying it's not hot, or that people aren't supposed to be turned on by it (although I would argue that you are then supposed to be kind of bad for being turned on by it but that is debatable). I am just saying that I would look askance at anybody who claimed that they enjoyed Carrie because of the tits.

Jenny, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:28 (thirteen years ago) link

"I enjoyed the shower scene in spite of the rest of the movie" - arguably reasonable.

"I watch Carrie because I like the boobs in the shower scene" - ummmmm...

Jenny, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:29 (thirteen years ago) link

My only memory of Carrie is where the guys buy suits and the film speeds up.

[i]Dressed to Kill[i] opens with a sexy shower scene too.

Eazy, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:32 (thirteen years ago) link

Don't forget those three minutes also contain some sweet, sweet bush.

Cassius Wiener, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:33 (thirteen years ago) link

70's bush! Oh, where have you gone?

kenan, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:33 (thirteen years ago) link

Giggle moment: the evil bitch character in the car with Travolta, and her head goes down into his lap, and she keeps saying his name over and over. What are you doing, talking to it?

kenan, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:35 (thirteen years ago) link

A few years back I predicted that full bush and low-rise jeans would be the new fashion thing, that someone like Britney would do it. Just the natural evolution of things, the way that grunge gave way to swing dancing. And it almost happened a year or two ago, a few ads for Dolce & Gabanna used pubic hair that way.

Eazy, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:36 (thirteen years ago) link

A little moustache on the waistline, you know?

Eazy, Monday, 9 April 2007 14:38 (thirteen years ago) link

Oh, Billy. Billy. Oh, Billy. Oh, Billy. I hate Carrie White!

Oh, and you know what else I'm thinking? Kurt Russell film festival. The Thing b/w Escape From New York, maybe?

If Kurt Russell had been in the series, it wouldn't have sucked so much balls.

kenan, Monday, 9 April 2007 15:05 (thirteen years ago) link

I've never really watched the series, and it was weird to realize that all of a sudden it had been on for years and had spin-offs and shit. The movie is great, I think I actually saw it in the theater first.

Jordan, Monday, 9 April 2007 15:11 (thirteen years ago) link

My mother loved Overboard. I think I've watched it with her about ten times.

I'd lobby for The Thing b/w Big Trouble in Little China. Although for pure yelling at the screen stupidness, Escape from NY is pretty sweet.

And I'm not complaining, except that I am, but I drug my fanny into the center because I'm freaking DEDICATED and I am THE ONLY ONE HERE. Oy.

xp - and I would argue, Eric, that you never have to.

Jenny, Monday, 9 April 2007 15:16 (thirteen years ago) link

Uh, be careful -- if I've understood you correctly, you're moving the actual file to the new folder, removing it from the original place. Or at least that's what has happened to me when I've forgotten to hit the copy key. Check and make sure.

No, that never happens to me. After all, the file in the iTunes interface is not the original file: the original file is on the hard drive.

I watched Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? last night. Whoa. My upstairs neighbors are always yelling at each other and making noise, so I turned the volume up a little bit as revenge.

jaymc, Monday, 9 April 2007 15:17 (thirteen years ago) link

fuck tango and cash. turner and hooch is where it's at. :)

kenan, Monday, 9 April 2007 15:17 (thirteen years ago) link

xpost Liz Taylor and Richard Burton, I assume. I saw that at Borders the other day and allllmost bought it. But then thought... what would the re-watchability factor of this really be?

kenan, Monday, 9 April 2007 15:19 (thirteen years ago) link

I've never seen any of this early-'80s pop culture hits. And now I don't think I really want to...? Not my kind of humor. :/

Oh, Jay, I understand now. Using the command-R opens the ORIGINAL hard-drive location, so in that case you deffo have to copy, not just drag. But if yr dragging straight from iTunes listing it must be different.

Laurel, Monday, 9 April 2007 15:19 (thirteen years ago) link

Did you like the movie, John?

xp - oh man, endless rewatchability, especially if you aspire to memorize the movie and perform spontaneous scenes with Jesse at parties.

Jenny, Monday, 9 April 2007 15:20 (thirteen years ago) link

Turner & Hooch lol

Jordan, Monday, 9 April 2007 15:20 (thirteen years ago) link

Gotcha.

jaymc, Monday, 9 April 2007 15:20 (thirteen years ago) link

Yes, I did like the movie. I'm trying to re-evaluate Sandy Dennis's performance. At first I thought she was the weak link in the cast, but I just learned that she won an Oscar for it.

jaymc, Monday, 9 April 2007 15:21 (thirteen years ago) link

I think Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn could do a kick-ass Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?.

Honey is a tough part because it's not as fleshed out as the others. It's the weak link in the writing, I think.

Eazy, Monday, 9 April 2007 15:22 (thirteen years ago) link

I think I agree. She's not given much to do.

jaymc, Monday, 9 April 2007 15:22 (thirteen years ago) link

I think Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn could do a kick-ass Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

No no... Tom Waits and Lily Tomlin.

kenan, Monday, 9 April 2007 15:28 (thirteen years ago) link

Eric, what did you think of the Honey in the production we saw? I liked her. I actually felt like she had a little more substance than Sandy Dennis did in the movie. I don't know if that was her acting or what, but I had a lot more empathy for Honey during the play that in the movie.

Jenny, Monday, 9 April 2007 15:28 (thirteen years ago) link

i woke up yesterday and realized i didn't have any actual food in my house but i did have baker's chocolate, sugar, eggs, and flour so i made brownies. i had soup and brownies for dinner last night and am polishing off the rest of the batch right now with my horrible bus station coffee.

I like springer spaniels most of all. I took care of one for a month once and it ran like crazy. My uncle had one, and you could throw a stick out into the middle of a lake and she would go get it.

The first page of google image search for springer spaniels links both to the White House and Susan Orlean's personal page.

save yr money dan, i ran out a while ago and i need nicotine asap. i'm taking the train to division, going to the chase at milwaukee & ashland then hitting the slashie just east of paulina for smokes.

chicago kevin, Thursday, 19 April 2007 21:12 (thirteen years ago) link

i wonder how long it takes to process an atm withdrawal? i mean, i get paid at midnight, if i took the $$$ out after business hours would they process it immediately and would i incur a fee?

i really don't think i'm willing to find out but i am curious.

chicago kevin, Thursday, 19 April 2007 21:14 (thirteen years ago) link

I think you would be ok.

Jordan, Thursday, 19 April 2007 21:14 (thirteen years ago) link

now that i think about it, there should be like a quarter pack of smokes somewhere in my apartment. i forgot to bring mine to work the other day.

chicago kevin, Thursday, 19 April 2007 21:14 (thirteen years ago) link

Very good question... I know mine is only instantaneous if I use one of my bank's ATMs, so that might be something to consider.

dan m, Thursday, 19 April 2007 21:15 (thirteen years ago) link

julia has my smokes, i know she is enjoying them. :(

kenan, Thursday, 19 April 2007 21:15 (thirteen years ago) link

yeah but i'm not gonna chance it. if i had plans maybe i would but just so i can stop off and have a couple of beers is definitely not worth the risk.

chicago kevin, Thursday, 19 April 2007 21:16 (thirteen years ago) link

Also in the course of dealing with my debit card theft nonsense I learned that all the fees for using non-bank-owned ATMs come out in one lump sum at the end of the month, which I thought was kind of strange.

When did digital cameras become omnipresent anyway?

Jordan, Thursday, 19 April 2007 22:19 (thirteen years ago) link

i dunno, 5 years ago? i mean, if we're talking omnipresence. they existed before that but not eeeeeveryone had one. now everyone has one or they're getting one for their birthday this year.

La Lechera, Thursday, 19 April 2007 22:30 (thirteen years ago) link

this is an obvious "what the fart do i know about when anything became omnipresent" answer, since i honestly have no idea. i just know when they seemed to become omnipresent for me.

La Lechera, Thursday, 19 April 2007 22:35 (thirteen years ago) link

I bought a digital camera in 1998 in an attempt to cure a broken heart with gadget-retail therapy. It was $259 and like one megapixel or something and ran on regular batteries and when I brought it out to bars, it was still pretty novel.

Jenny, Thursday, 19 April 2007 22:43 (thirteen years ago) link

If that helps at all. I think that was pre-omnipresence.

Jenny, Thursday, 19 April 2007 22:43 (thirteen years ago) link

Jenny gave me that camera. I used it for about 2 days, but it died soon after that.

Can someone make a new thread? I'm really sick of this one.
