"No, I don't even laugh at seasickness! I happen to regard jealousy as the seasickness of passion."

Finally got my hands on Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

I'm reading the new Al Franken book called 'Lies and the lying liars who tell them"... very good and funny...

The other day I went to B&N and bought a bunch of movie scripts and 'how to' film books... some of them really interesting

the scripts... magnolia, boogie nights, the matrix, pulp fiction, and a couple of foreign films.... i have some more but cant remember right now cause i'm in argentina

"The Best American Essays of 2003: The Best American Series" and specifically, I am reading right now Susan Sontag's essay Looking at War. Good stuff.

i just finished this;



the novel, that is, and i loved it. i had mixed (overal negative) reactions towards the film itself, but after reading the novel i'd like to take a second look at it.

it brings up an interesting thing about how u change, and more specicially, how ur tastes change over time. i saw this film maybe, well, whenver it was out in the theaters-- over a year ago? and at the time i thought it was overstylized trite w/ muddled motives. now i'm interested in revisiting it to see if i feel the same way. it could just be that avary's adaptation doesn't compare to the novel. i dunno.

woody allen was quoted as to hating 2001 when it came out, only years later to embrace the film as a masterpiece. so i guess the question is-- what films/books did u used to hate but have come to enjoy or even really luv over time?

One of my favorite novels... although when I heard it was going to be filmed, I knew it would be difficult.  I think you and others who have read the book know what I mean.  Very ambiguous.

Avary did a good job, but I understood those who saw the movie wouldn't like it nearly as much as fans of the book.

Have you ever read her essay, "A Century of Cinema"? One of America's finest essayists, particularly on cultural issues.

Me:



...particularly for Haynes's introductory essay, which I can't wait to read. I wish he'd do more non-script writing, as he's always erudite and interesting.
""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."

I liked the first half better than the second, but it was enjoyable.

What I really liked about it was that you can tell that he actually wrote it and didn't hire someone to write it for him under his name.

I'm into Chapter 3, and it is very funny so far.

Unfortunately, my copy is not autographed.  :yabbse-wink:
