the last bloke at the party

No doubt, I'll be around helping to pick up after everyone's gone. It's who I am.

stick around

we've got a lot of new folks coming in with all the anniversary excitement. It's good to have you back.

The new chat crashes a good deal less often, which is why more folks are hanging out there, I think.

Man......I don't see a home here, anymore

So many new.....nothing is familiar....I was too long without decent access and a screen large enough to see and read.....the new chat seems empty when I'm there....names in the forums are unknown to me.....

The Other One

Forgive me if this was covered somewhere, but is there anywhere I can view, or buy Bob Weirs movie the Other One? Peaceful Day, and thank you!

Thanks for those recommendations katky. I missed many of those and will track some of them down.
As for Boyhood, it will probably be the kind of movie that people will either love or hate. It's almost 3 hours long and not much happens. The things that do happen might seem like cliches. But for me it didn't matter: it all just worked. I saw it yesterday and have been mulling it over ever since. It was a great, strange experience.

As a film buff (I keep a little notebook / lol), not only do I look forward to RL's ambitious and protracted production, but agree with you in spades regarding the comprehensive strength of 2013's catalogue of big-screen releases across all genres from horror to documentary! As a transplanted southerner, the most adept analogy I can invoke is to say that last year's roster is the cinematic equivalent of the SEC's football programs: a lot of premium talent with relatively few stinkers!

Aside from those you've listed (except for LLD, which eluded me entirely - though, having read Dylan's Chronicle Vol.1, I understand the significant milieu writers and producers were aiming at) and among larger releases that some might reasonably recognize, I loved Mud; The Way Way Back; Osage County; Dallas Buyer's Club; Philomena; The Iceman (big year for the awesome Michael Shannon (Mud)); Ain't Them Bodies Saints; Frozen; The Spectacular Now; Parkland; and The Place Beyond the Pines.

Also very good were, The Co. You Keep; Old Boy; Wish You Were Here (not Floyd); Fruitvale Stn.; The Sapphires; Jobs; The Butler; Enough Said; Prisoners; Lone Survivor; Gravity; Cpt. Phillips; 12 Years...; The Counselor; Mama (very good horror); Black Rock (suspense); The East (Page adds another line to an impressive resume); and the Conjuring.

Also a banner year for documentaries, especially those critical of the hegemony of extreme wealth in national and global politics./k
