Well, Mr. filmcritic, you forgot to mention today is his 61st birthday.

Yes, that's true. I e-mailed him today and wished him a happy birthday. He is 61 and hopefully he'll be around for years to come.

There are some interesting things about him that maybe most of you know already. His favorite movie is "Citizen Kane". He has written a screenplay called "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls". He never prepared to be a film critic when he went to college, but of course he became one. He sees movies just about everyday. He always said that in the most typical day in Chicago, the first movie is at 10, the second movie is a couple of hours later, and the next one is a couple of hours after that. He had to work his way through college because after his father died, his family was tight on cash. He said that he's usually so busy that people will ask him if he wants to go to lunch with them and he says that he hasn't had lunch in 10 years.

"Woody reserved special contempt for film critics on television. 'The Chicago morons' was his label for one high-profile pair." - Mia Farrow, What Falls Away.

Way to be diplomatic, Mia!

The nicest thing I can personally think of to say about Ebert's body of work is that it's better than Leonard Maltin's.
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."
