Mix Tapes?  Reply with quote  

So... maybe I should start a mix tapes thread, with all the songs I've put on them... just did one a month or so ago.

They're gonna be personal... so an anecdote about who they are for might be good.

I'll start the thread tonight, unless somebody beats me to it.

That sounds cool Ken. Anything with music is alright with me.

I second that emotion and now onto the laughter. I think I've successfully brought everyone on this site down enough with my homeless diatribe. So now I need to laugh. Try watching the "Motorcycle Diaries". That will make you laugh. Go for it.

I lied. It's two days later. I am starting the thread *right now* in the lists forum.

Nick Hornby  Reply with quote  

Yeah, I read High Fidelity too and it was kind of melancholy, but About a Boy was an excellent story (and probably the best book-to-movie transition I've ever seen). The characters are really awesome. CM is still my favorite though.

Umm, Chris, I hate to break it to you but  Reply with quote  

Sadly, a thread on your own message board that was started to make you feel better about being kind of dissed by Nick Hornby has disinigrated into a thread about Nick Hornby books. I find that amusing, and I can only hope that you do as well.

I think if anyone sees Nick Hornby they taunt him with the fact that Fever Pitch was made into not one, but two, horrible movies. (For the Brits, I'm sorry but even with Colin Firth in the first one it didn't even really make passable).

For myself (because I do feel compelled to weigh in) I agree with Klari on the Peter Pan complex glorification issue re: High Fidelity, which doesn't necessarily mean that anyone who identified with the character is immature. I liked About a Boy a lot better because there was some growth there, whereas I felt like the main character in High Fidelity got the happy ending without earning it. But then that's the way life is.

Also, Ken, faux pas in English is not translated "Oh, shit." It's translated fox pass. At least it better be, because that's how I always say it.

And another thing, when we speak of Buffy, must it alway be that godforsaken Sarah Mindless Gellar show. I feel we really neglect Kristy Swanson/Luke Perry/Donald Sutherland movie version, also written by Joss Whedon, and also featuring an uncredited appearance by Mr. Jennifer Garner.

That is all.
