Epistolary Deep Thoughts

  • This past semester I taught Flannery O'Connor's "Good Country People." In a remarkable display of good taste and self-restraint, I did NOT make any Heather Mills jokes.
  • I would trade all my clothes for Shelley Long's Troop Beverly Hills wardrobe.
  • If I were a DJ, my name would be either DJ Booty (in honor of my favorite African nation) or DJ Tanner (in honor of my favorite 80s sitcom).
  • I love to say “WTF.” It’s one of those rare counterproductive abbreviations that actually has more syllables than the phrase it abbreviates.

I'm so thankful that you cleared this up. I've been wondering what the difference was. I thought maybe it was a publicity ploy providing double the ad time to make sure I'd buy a ticket. Now I understand my stupidity! These movies won't be a bit alike!


My sister, who should be a film critic, spared me the trouble of going to the Black Dahlia: Linda and I walked out of Black Dahlia. Gratuitious violence against women all over the place. Very uneven. Horrible script with unbelievable twists and turns. I could not keep up with the plot and finally didn't care. No consistent style. Just awful.


yeah. i was confused about this one too, but figured it out because: hollywoodland has ben affleck, while black dahlia has the equally overhyped and only sometimes hot josh hartnett. i think. doesn't really matter because i hate those kind of movies anyway--as erudite as THAT sounds.

Hippie Mama

Oooh, oooh, now do The Illusionist and The Prestige!
