I thought of that the instant my last post with an "8)" turned into sunglasses dude...  Thanks for the tweak.

Oh, I never saw this thread. Is there any chance to get a password still? (:

This is long overdue, but... I made an edit so "8)" no longer turns into a smiley.

Now, when you need to swiftly create the sunglasses smiley (and don't we all sometimes), you'll need to use this code:

Yayy!!!!! Two of my friendz ended up on the trailer! Kansas is in two of the shotz ~
So excited to watch this jubilant film -- feels like what the inglorious teaser felt like, and that one had an even cheesier smirk on ~

wilber, any recollections of the vibes around town after the murders?


My personal vibe was one of...concern?...especially following the LaBianca murder the following night.  I lived in the suburbs so felt somehow safer (even tho we were literally just over the hill in the Valley from both).  I didn't think I was in imminent danger--L.A. was such a gigantic fucking place you feel like the odds were pretty low you'd be next--but it certainly got your attention.   Both Mom and Dad were in the biz--but I don't remember overhearing any more-concerned-than-usual conversations from them about the murders.  A lot of shit had gone down by the late 60s--culturally, politically--at some point you just sorta surfed each new, holy-fuck news story as they came along.

It didn't cure my depression, so I'm disappointed.

No, it looks great. You would think this was mostly about Pitt/Dicaprio, but remember the gigantic fucking cast in this? And the Inglourious Basterds teaser? It didn't show anything else besides Brad Pitt being cool and killing nazis. I'm sure Margot Robbie will have more things to do then to walk around and look pretty.

Still curious how the hell this will pan out.
