Marian,

Yes, I have seen Fingersmith on the BBC (it was on last year) it was excellent!! Just as good as Tipping the Velvet.

I have looked on those sites you sent me do you think they pinched the idea for Brokeback from your film?

Its great to be able to talk to someone so far away, whats your weather like? It always rains here!!

Talk soon,

Francine

Tivo is a digital device that allows you to record two T.V. shows while your watching a different channel and also if your are watching a show and want to hear what you missed you can rewind and replay it again or put it on pause to go to the bathroom then continue what you are watching so you do not miss anything. Some of the words that I didn't think they should say was "clap" like the disease...a word we looked up in dictionary that they used was..."sycophant"- it means "self serving flatterer". We really have to listen hard to what they say becuase they talk so fast you can miss a lot. They also mention a lot of old movies that I have never heard about in their dialogue. I won't tell anymore of what is happening in GGG so those of you who do not get it as fast as we do will not be let down..I can respect that.

Well, Brokeback was a short story a few years before Yossi and Jagger was made, but I think our film pioneered the possibility for a gay love story between two strong masculine men. Do try to see it. It's on DVD, and gets shown on gay and Jewish and Israeli film festivals. And have a couple of hankies ready.

Today is a nice spring day, too few of those. Soon enough it will be hot, hot, hot -- high 20s, low-mid 30s c.

I hope we saw the last of the rains earlier this week, and we have a dry Independence Day next Wednesday.

Oh, that's the way play-for-pay movies work here. Very convenient once one reaches a certain age...

I just started The Time-Traveller's Wife today - have already told DH he can cook his own dinner tonight, and I'll retire to bed with the book as soon as I'm home from work.

I love the Discworld novels of Terry Pratchett - very astute commentary on human nature, and achingly funny. I also mean to catch up on all the Greek/Roman classics I should've read but haven't. I love the Marcus Didius Falco novels - very Phillip Marlowe.

I'd also recommend The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time - about an autistic boy delving into family secrets. It's uncannily realistic; I know a couple of boys just like the main character.

Filmwise I love both the new and the Katherine Hepburn versions of Little Women. Anything historical does it for me. And my increasing collection of Frasier DVDs.

Ooops! I found another definition for sycophant...it means, a person who seeks favor by flattering people of wealth or influence:, parasite;toady....

O.k. well enough of the GGG trivia for today. Anybody learn any other words from show let me know.

I need to get out of the house more, doctor visits just not hacking it. Hehehehehe

Smile - Seen Any Good Movies or Read Any Good Books? Brokeback Mountain

Hi Marian Paroo,

I have finally watched Brokeback Mountain with my DH, and I quite enjoyed it (when I could understand what the two cowboys were saying!!) My husband left the room in disgust muttering something about "shirt lifters" whatever that means? (I bet he would watch two women?)

I think I will try and find the film you recommended called"Yossi & Jagger".

Talk soon

I watched "Brokeback" last night. I knew I would like it, but as I feared the love scenes were a little much for me. I just tend to think on things after I see them..

Those cowboys were hard to understand weren't they! I kept playing parts over so that I could hear what they were saying!

All in all it is a good movie, leaves you to your own judgement, doesn't gloss over reality, and it made me cry.

Talk to you all later!

Smile - Seen Any Good Movies or Read Any Good Books? What other films on DVD can you recommend?

Hi Betts,

Can you tell me any other DVDs you have enjoyed? I have a 13yr son and we tend to buy the DVDs he likes(the last one was King Kong!! I personally preferred the previous version of this film the one with Jessica Lange in it) allthough we did enjoy Ice Age 2 at the cinema recently.

Talk soon,

Francine,
Have you seen Napoleon Dynamite? It is hilarious and my kids and I are always copying the characters around the house, it drives my dh nuts!

Walk the Line, is probably my favorite this year. Pride and Predjudice was good too, my girls liked it but my 12-year old son showed no interest.

If you haven't already seen it Finding Neverland was excellent. All my kids liked it. Some subject matter was adult, but flew over the heads of those who were younger and offered a good conversation starter with the olders, there really wasn't anything overtly bad in it.

I am probably better with the girl movies, my boys are pickier and tend to like the war and suspense movies. They love We Were Soldiers, Black Hawk Down, and Signs(nothing too scary in it). My dh is in the Army so we are a little more lax with the military type violence. They liked Wallace and Gromit, but my five-year old son loved it the most.

I will try to think of more...There is one about dogs that I have not seen but my 12year-old son just loved. I am going to buy it for him when it comes out on DVD. I will ask him what it is.
Betts
