I also spotted a very pretty piece of glass. Broken bong?
I noticed he was hanging out near the water fountain once I was in the pool, and after he wandered around a bit and had a pretty intense grooming session, he settled by the doors that lead out to the kiddie pool for some sunshine.
If you've ever met Sam, it's hard to picture him growling and hissing. But he does when he's at the vet.
We're watching the episode of Shameless where Liam's in the ER because he got into the pile of coke, and I recognized the nurse. I was about to give up trying to figure out from where, but then I spotted in her filmography that she was the main character on Boston Common, a sitcom I was thinking about recently anyway.
This has been stuck in my head for days because of the shooting in France. I would like it to stop soon.
When I saw Party Monster in the theater in 2003, there was a trailer for an older movie that looked really cool. It was an older movie, either getting a re-release, or maybe just coming to that particular theater. I figured it would be easy to find later, so I didn't even think to ask my partner at the time who was at the theater with me if he'd ever seen it. He was 27 years older and probably had an opinion.
His being in town for a visit meant I was busy for a few days, and I couldn't even say how long it was until I remembered to search out that odd movie I'd never heard of. I thought I remembered Teri Garr being in the trailer, but began to doubt it when I looked into her filmography. And how old was it? The sets I remembered in the trailer were very stylized and interesting lighting techniques were used to transition from one to the next. Was it a musical? No clue.
I eventually gave up, figuring I'd happen upon it eventually and recognize it. Well, hoping I would. Fast forward to two days ago, when a friend who's been tweeting about a lot of older stuff I wouldn't generally go for mentioned something he was about to watch from 1982. I was curious, so I looked up the trailer.
Eureka! It was Teri Garr! I finally got to watch it!
And it was terrible.
Ok, not completely terrible. The story is terrible and the characters are terrible, but I really enjoyed watching it. Maybe I'm easily entertained, but I can forgive bad storytelling if it's fun to look at, and this film's a stunner. It takes place entirely on sets, and it's obvious they're sets because you can see the line in the sky where the wall meets the ceiling, but everything looks so cool. It takes place in Las Vegas, and they spared no expense recreating the strip. No really, the movie had a budget of $26 million ($64 million in today's dollars) and it's obvious they felt free to spend every last bit of it.
It was a huge flop, and it deserved to be. But I loved to look at it.
Oh yeah, it was directed by Francis Ford Coppola. Ha.
I was actually hoping for some fog, but it turns out it was confined to my current neighborhood. Over in the old one, the sky was quite clear. If there's anything Silver Lake's good for, it's great sunrises. Walking a lap around it every morning was always nice. Living in the woods now, I get limited views of the sunrise through the trees. Beautiful in its own way, but impossible to get a picture of.
Didn't find anything, but I'm sure that'll be the case for just about every trip. What I realized this morning is that the way to enjoy it is to just keep walking and waving the thing around, because if you stare at the ground, it gets boring. And there's no way to cover an entire area. You just have to accept it.
