I knew that you and the vixter loved this film and what it had to say about the human condition.  I did love its theme - driving.  Certainly I was driven completely insane.  The bunny was cute, though.

Perhaps I'll write a musical version of The Brown Bunny.

I look barely alive
So I think I'll drive
I'll drive, then stop at a store
Buy a Coke - make out - then drive some more
You may think I'm lazy
But I just want to see my ex-girlfriend Daisy
Who's played by my ex-girlfriend Chloe
In a part that's quite showy
After I see her - I'll have to blow-y
Because I'm barely alive
And I've got to drive.

I've caught up, but I don't have any questions for anyone.  I now have to take a shower and get me to my job on time (almost a My Fair Lady reference).

Dear Friend BK, a question:  do you subscribe to castrecl@mit.edu?  You are subject today to comments from the ever-pompous John Esche who has things to say about the SHE LOVES ME recording.  The fact that he's claiming a social life with one of our favorite producers is scary enough!

I have a question for Ask BK Day:

Can you name one or a couple of movies about which your opinions have changed drastically over the years?

I mentioned here before about my about face on NASHVILLE which I just didn't get when I first watched it and now consider masterful.

I'm asking this question because I just got invited to a critics' screening of Tim Burton's new CORPSE BRIDE tonight. It's another stop motion animation feature in the same league as THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.

That movie (NIGHTMARE) is another that I was lukewarm toward when I first saw it and later liked it more on reviewings. (Still don't think it's great, however.)

Since I'm going to that preview tonight, I'll have to DVR VERONICA MARS. I think the movie is relatively short (animated movies usually are 90 minutes or less), but not to take any chances, I'll record VERONICA and watch it when I get home.

And COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER and PSYCHO II both did come in the mail today, so there are a couple of other movies to add to the to-watch pile.

From your precis this morning, I think that ninth line needs to be changed to "After I see her--she'll have to blow-y".   ;D

I have never seen The Nightmare Before Christmas.  Edward Scissorhands is a movie that I initially didn't care for but after  repeat viewings it grew on me. (there was a period of time when  it seemed  as if that was the only movie playing on cable) Although I wouldn't go out of my way to see it I must admit.

I am interested in what you think of The Corpse Bride.  The Vixter has been pushing to go see it because of the voice talents of Mr. Depp, who is her new favorite movie actor

D-t-M asked in regard to Martha Stewart's new show:

Do you know where in the city she's taping?  Is this an NBC show?  The studio looks huge!

It's taped at the Chelsea Piers Studios, IIRC. The complex is at 23rd Street and the Hudson River. The various Law and Order shows also do their indoor work at those studios. The complex is very large so the studio is probably large as well.

I don't know if it's an NBC Show, although Mark Burnett, who produces both Martha's Apprentice and the Donald's Apprentice, also produces her daytime talker and he seems to have a relationship with NBC.

I believe The Brown Bunny was either booed or laughed off the screen at Cannes...probably both.

I've never seen Rollover so I can't say whether Kris Kristofferson was miscast as a Wall Street Whiz, but I think in real life, he was a Rhodes scholar.

Good Afternoon!

Well.. I sort of watched "Ellen" and then I sort of watched "Martha".  I seem to have a case of the "drowsies" today.  In any case...

"Martha"... Hmm... Today's main guest was Susan Lucci...  Hmm...  That's all I'll say for now, except... Hmm...

RE: "The Brown Bunny" - I had to check out what all the fuss  was about - beyond the x-rated scene - after I saw the movie, and checked out various reviews, both professional and amateur ones.  In one of the "raves", the reviewer noted how Mr. Gallo captured the realism of driving cross country, even down to the detail of filming bugs hitting his windshield.  As if Mr. Gallo had an "insect wrangler" on his production team.  -Well, maybe Gallo is a certified insect wrangler too in addition to his credits as a writer, producer, director, camera man...

the only two silent movies I can recall ever seeing are
Voyage dans la Lune, Le/A Trip to the Moon  and Mel Brooke's  film Silent Movie

Hmm, that is an area I should explore further, could be very interesting!

Big Brother 6 Spoilage:

Phase 1 of the 3-phase HOH competition is over and the winner received the combination to the final Gold Bedroom safe.  Ivette's prize was two motor scooters.

Sad to say that Ivette refuses to believe that Maggie actually lost her balance and stepped off the spinning dial this morning.  She cannot accept even the slightest possibility that she won something fair and square.  I think that girl is seriously messed up in re: self-image.

Phase II should be held sometime today.  It will be Janelle vs. Maggie in some competition that will be other than endurance.

Whoever wins Phase II will meet Ivette in Phase III competition for HOH.  Whoever wins earns the right to choose who goes to the final two with her.
