Into the Wild

From the book by the same name. Go see it on the big screen, so you can get the feel of Alaska. The story of a searcher who paid the ultimate price for his search. Good soundtrack too.

He goes solo on a kayak down the Colorado River, I found myself yelling “helmet” in the theater when he didn’t have one and entered the rapids and then two people in the film yelled “ helmet”. Ha!

Election

Starring Matthew Broderick and Reece Witherspoon; great flick!

Tammy Metzler: [her campaign speech] Who cares about this stupid election? We all know it doesn't matter who gets elected president of Carver. Do you really think it's going to change anything around here; make one single person smarter or happier or nicer? The only person it does matter to is the one who gets elected. The same pathetic charade happens every year, and everyone makes the same pathetic promises just so they can put it on their transcripts to get into college. So vote for me, because I don't even want to go to college, and I don't care, and as president I won't do anything. The only promise I will make is that if elected I will immediately dismantle the student government, so that none of us will ever have to sit through one of these stupid assemblies again!

Festival Express

Okay Okay, I'm repeating myself. Earlier I answered a question from Gratefulapril in another forum. She'd seen Express, but could not "name that toon"! Anyhoo,
It's really great to see Jerry and Janis together so young and HAPPY. Buddy Guy also kicks ass.
I read about the movie in Leshs' "Searching for the Sound"

And again.... Has anyone one seen the movie "Alice's Restaurant" from 1969?
I've got to find it. I will look on Netflix today!

I worked at a shop called "Picasso Moon" in VA. Cool stuff, but overpriced. Who could beat listening to The Dead allday, meeting cool people, not to mention the employee discount!

yeah...

I think it has to do with the Northwest thing a lot. Let's just say I found the constant sogginess at least as oppressive as Kesey probably meant me to, second-generation Californian that I am.

On the other hand, it was 30 years ago if it was a day that I tried to read the book, so maybe I should give it another try.

Sometimes A Great Notion

I read this book nonstop over a Christmas vacation and was fascinated. Also have friends who say this is one of their favorite books ever. Much of our view is shaped by living in the Northwest, knowing the forest, the stumps, logging communities and families and gypo logging outfits.

Goodnight, Irene

marye,
Now I need to see that movie again and try to read the damn book, too. Probably not in my own best mental health interests to do either. Maybe now you guys can see why I watch juvenile comedy movies. (Mutters to self, "Where did I put that damn Spaceballs DVD???)
