The Queen is an interesting movie. It’s about a very important time in her life. I remember telling my mother early in the morning many years that some “princess” had died and she didn’t believe me. Isn’t it interestomg that something so tragic touched the entire world ( At least it sounds like it did.).
The Polish president and lots of members of the Polish pres died in a plane crash in Russia today. Crazy.
Doctor Who is no longer being broadcast on the Syfy (this is actually how the channel is spelled) channel here in the United States (Sigh). I would have to get digital cable or a satellite dish to see it here.
Cecil, I know nothing about Doctor Who, I don’t own a TV…it was
Yay for Ally going to San Fran :D
Try not to get caught in any earthquakes ;-)
I don’t know anything about Doctor Who either. LOL.
The Queen is an amazing film, captures a short period in a realistic way instead of covering a life in an overblown way. DR Who is on BBC America
oh I live kind of by SF allison
Cecil, at first I was scared that there might be an earthquake, but there was an earthquake last wk in L.a. and it was no big deal. It happened when I was watching Alice in Wonderland in 3-D!!
it WAS just playing in the background as my friend was watching it, and I’m certain he’d agree with you ;)
New Doctor Who is definite win. Moffat had basically wrote all the good episodes during Davies run anyways…
Den, San Jose?
I knew it was going to be on BBC America, I just don’t have the resources to obtain the channel right now.
Ally, at least it didn’t rain frogs on you!
Ben, oh. Well when you do get round to season 5 somehow it is a lot better. We’re only two episodes in here in the UK but I’m really enjoying it. Obviously you have to put up with some jumps in logic and so forth but there’s been some really good stuff so far.
Cecil, only in Magnolia!!!!
no in Modesto but it is in driving distance (90mins away)
I go there from time to time to eat at the Stinky Rose or go to the Beat Museum or the Sheraton.
They have a great zoo tho no hippos):
I am going there for 3 days in September to stay at the Razz Room hotel and see some showsI
I have never seen an episode of Dr Who
Crap Monster, yeah I think he wrote all of my four favourite episode during the RTD run. Girl in the Fireplace, The Library, The Empty Child and my favourite one Blink.
How is the new Doctor Cecil? Is he any good?
Ally, you mean it does actually rain frogs in LA? movies lied to me! :’(
Ben, I like him. I prefer Tennant, obviously, but Smith has been good fun to watch I thought. He is very energetic. I’m not sure how well he’ll cope with the more serious dramatic moments as the series goes on but certainly so far he’s done well.
O public library, depository of donated contemporary fiction, why had I forsaken thee for so long?
anyone know if Eastwood’s Blood Work is worth $5?
That is good to hear. I liked Tennant as well but I would like to see were the series goes with a Doctor. As for me I am going to lie down for awhile as my current illness is really wearing me down.
Josh S. yeah the library is invaluable!
Allison: Well, mine is pretty bare bones when it comes to resources, but it was nice to relax there for the first time in a couple years.
Anyone here seen Paranormal Activity or Zombieland? What did y’all think? I should be watching them, and rewatching the awesome Drag Me to Hell, tonight.
Cecil we should have a synchronized viewing of Drag Me to Hell. what time are you watching it?
Ally, probably last of the three which would make it about 23:30 I think.
are you PST? Or EST? or CST?
Or are you Greenwich Mean Time?
