let's just say

I don't think she would have done well at a Dead show. Though an amusing subgenre of Carrie At The Dead Show can easily be envisioned...

Surprised

I have to admit that I never thought a discussion on the Sex and the City movie would pop up on the Grateful Dead website.

oh, and speaking of shoes

I have to admit I like Carlos Santana's designs a lot, but would I buy/wear them? probably not. Some of them make your feet hurt just to look at them.

I have mixed feelings, myself

Not having cable, I never saw the HBO version, but by this time have seen the whole series several times over in somewhat expurgated reruns. I do not at all care for Carrie the character or Sarah Jessica Parker the actress/endorser of hair products (I stipulate to her talent; I just don't care for her). In general the characters leave me somewhere between bewildered and appalled at their general vapidity, self-absorption and overall behavior.

And yet, the darn thing has its moments. For example, I love Smith, not because he's so easy on the eyes, though that certainly helps, but for the scene where he shaves his head to keep Samantha company in the chemo. I loved the series ending, which was perfect, though I am still in horror at Carrie blowing off her own booksigning, for which the Parisian bookstore had gone to great trouble, for that narcissist sociopath played by Baryshnikov. I love Charlotte, Harry and Elizabeth Taylor in the last season. I like the way the girls look out for each other, even if I often echo the question often raised over the years of Who Are These People And Why On Earth Should I Care About Them?

Which is to say, especially since I haven't set foot in a movie theater since Brokeback Mountain, I'll probably wait till this is in Netflix, but sooner or later I'll probably see it.

Hey CB

Thanks for the post, Lovin the GD Chuck Taylor's!
I was outvoted last weekend (by chicks of course), so instead of Indy, I watched the aforementioned movie. It was pretty wild. The movie cut off in the middle & the women in the crowd started chanting "we want sex". Luckily it only took a few mintues to remedy the film issue. I'd hate to see a crowd like that with bloodlust.
While I would never spend $$ like that to cover my body or my feet, it was pretty funny & I only cringed a little when I had to pay $8.50 to see it.

PEACE
