  1. Titanic

    American Beauty

    Both so formulaic that I knew everything that was going to happen before it did. (In the case of Titanic, yes, we all knew the boat was going down...it became more of how and when they were going to push a button...)

    And then we have Legends of the Fall: so laughable it was in a class all its own. The night we went, the Brad Pitt fan club apparently was on a field trip. The audience broke out in wild applause when he appeared on screen. Audible sobs when Isabelle died. At least that gave us a chance to let out all the suppressed laughter that had been building throughout the movie. (Who could forget their version of Hop Sing?) And then the scene where daddy dearest saves the prodigal son - ROTFLMAO!!! We purposely went to a bookstore after the movie just to find other books by the author to point at and make fun of.

    Yes, I can be cruel when I don't like something. But let me tell you how I really feel....<eg>


  2. So, Dar - bagel run next time we're in the same vicinity? (If our little family here manages to have a get together this summer - for whatever reason?)



  3. Oh, this is just almost cruel! I LOVE real bagels and there aren't any in Springberg. (Ask ScentLady about my real bagel cravings.) We used to have a fabulous store, but the man who owned it burned himself out and the rest of us paid the price. Agree with MJ that rock salt is good, love pumpernickel, too...heck, I can eat my way through almost all varieties, just as long as they aren't too froo-froo (i.e. sweet). And real cream cheese rock, too - olives are especially tasty in it...


    drooling all over her keyboard

  4. I don't know you and James as well as many others here, but I feel as if I do...and I am completely stunned by this news. I'm praying for you and hope you know you can turn to each and every one of us when you need/want anything.

    There really aren't any other words to say. Just know you're being held in the warmest of thoughts and prayers.


  5. Regarding music for kids...I highly recommend that anyone with small people in their lives introduce them to Trout Fishing in America. They do great grown up tunes, too, but I know adults who enjoy the children's music almost as much as their little ones do!


  6. "Makes me feel better" - (non 'Berries/non EC - limiting myself on purpose) "New York City Rhythm", "Beautiful Music", KC & the Sunshine Band (yes, I really do have a concession to disco) and countless others

    Wistful/Sad - (again, non/non - and again narrowing the category on purpose) "Questions 67 and 68", "Lay Me Down", "Trying To Get The Feeling", "Love of a Lifetime" (not sad for everyone, but gets to me every time)

    Eric/'Berries - "I Can Remember"

    Gee, Ira - didja have to give me an excuse to mention "ICR" yet again? smile


  7. LOL! Gee - weren't we just discussing this very topic on Saturday night? wink

    Me...while other songs are more closely associated with me, "Ecstasy" is my 'Berries ringtone of choice. And virtually everyone who knows me would agree that "New York City Rhythm" (my Manilow geekiness is showing again, isn't it?) is pretty representative of me overall....


    P.S. Reid - I love "Dead Man's Curve" and know exactly what you mean!

  8. I'm right there with you, Annie. And while it may not be the most sophisticated piece of music in the world, darned if I wasn't singing that "Rehab" ditty all day today...so it must be kinda catchy. (Yeah, I know. I can live so in my own little world at times - had never actually heard her until last night.) Of course, it doesn't hurt that it's not much of a stretch to segue right from "no-no-no" into "nah-nahnahnahnah" that we've all heard a gazillion times.

    Anyhoo, guess I just hope that people can clean up their act when they're in such a bad spot. Guess it's the reluctant Pollyanna in me.


  9. I'd take the snow right now! We've had freezing rain and snow for almost 24 hours and I'm starting to have flashbacks to last year when we were without power for 13 days. Have moved my car to a neighbor's driveway where it is out of danger from potential huge falling limbs and trees. Holding my breath over a couple of trees in my yard...hope they stay standing!


  10. Bernie, you da man indeed! I didn't realize back in '97 how close I was to being in on the beginning of the site...but had to be pretty darned close. I tend to keep a pretty low profile on line and didn't post till just before the Chicago show in '05...but did e-mail you a few times and quickly learned what a great person you are. Thank you for all you have poured into this site and community. Here's hoping that only the best comes your way now and in the future.

    We've got your back, Bernie, and we always will - it's the least we can do for all you've given us.
