ugh -a guy got on the bus today shouting into his hands free phone. I almost let it ruin my day, but he hung up before the bus left, so I forgave him.
Avatar 3:24pm ðcp:

thing about people shouting into their phones is they're always talking about the lamest thing imaginable and they don't care that everyone can hear them clearly. I don't get it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm Mike East:

I think they want everyone to hear them because they think they are important and/or interesting, which, you are right dcp, they never are.
Avatar 3:26pm BSI:

Avatar 4:58pm chocolate monk:

i need more extreme weather (pref of the snowy kind).. here on englands south coast its all pretty meeeh!
Avatar 4:59pm kat330:

@fleep: We have a rollercoaster every week, bouncing between 15 and 60 as extremes. I won't gloat about today (the gods hate hubris), BUT it's impossible not to boast about an afternoon outside in the sunshine in early Feb.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm G:

I'll believe "blizzard" when i see it. but just in case did a quick "survival run": 4 pounds protein, one pound cheese, three bags popcorn, two kinds of cookies.

NWS, do your worst.
Avatar 5:02pm kat330:

And I really do hope they are overselling the snowmageddon dingus, so nothing that matters is affected and the businesses depending on snow are helped out.

Avatar 5:09pm Philo Gristle:

@Mike How was that Chinese crispy shrimp & walnuts? Just walked in to a strong chicken curry aroma myself. Kat's been cooking. If they made deodorant that smelled of curry, that'd be my preference.

Good evening! Just showing off my new spots..
Avatar 5:11pm kat330:

@Philo: With our kitchen window wide open, you got a good whiff before you even got through the door. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm Mike East:

@Philo Gristle - it was fantastic, but I ated too much and regretted it. Also had a cola with it that someone gave me, which didn't help. enjoy the curry. hopefully I will have some ginger salmon waiting for me when I get home this evening.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Mike East:

@PG - I recommend "Primer," if you haven't seen it, especially if you were into TimeCrimes (which I believe you recommended to me). Total mindfuck. Watched it two nights in a row and I'm still trying to wrap my brain around it. Other than that, I've been watching the Lorax with my daughter which is pretty good.

I'm getting cooler just listening to this happenin' bass riff.
Avatar 5:23pm Philo Gristle:

@Mike Ha! We did see Primer some time ago, and loved it. Sorta. I have a feeling you can solve it, but it's beyond my mental range, but did really dig it. On the same time travel front we just saw Looper (finally) and it gets a recommendation, though still prefer 12 Monkeys for Bruce Willis timetravel hijinx.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Just wait until Clay Pigeon arrives. That's when the party really begins!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Mike East:

cool! didn't know looper was out yet, but I've been looking forward to it. I've been reading a blog which claims to have solved Primer...and yet I'm still totally confused.
Avatar 5:28pm Philo Gristle:

I don't mind being puzzled, tho, long as it engages me during the proceedings! Another film I loved but which threw me for a loop was an old Gene Hackman/Arthur Penn flick, Night Moves. Straightforward mystery, and probably solvable, but the ending.... wow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm Mike East:

also, I think Shane Carruth (primer director/actor) worked on Looper in some capacity.
And 12 Monkeys rules!
Avatar 5:29pm Philo Gristle:

And they made Primer for like 5K. Insanity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm tim from champaign:

W.R. is a good movie. You'll learn quite a bit about orgones.
Avatar 5:31pm Philo Gristle:

I always weep a little when Fabio reads these NYC film listings.... sniff..... used to have such treats in Helsinki, over here in boondocks it's dvd at best. Makavejev did a couple of decent oddball 'Hollywood' flicks later on, like Coca-Cola Kid with Eric Roberts.
