    Weather is hot. Blah, Blah, Blah......


    TOTD: What great movie have you run across recently, that you had forgotten about.

    For me it was The Missing. Great movie, but I had totally forgotten about it.

    We watched "Giant" for the first time in several years, this weekend. I hadn't forgotten the movie existed, of course, but I had forgotten a lot of details in it - like the whole existence of Mercedes McCambridge's character, for example. It's quite an epic, and takes a real time commitment to watch.

    Sunny and warm

    TOTD: Ten Commandments. I know, how could I forget. Well, it has been a while since I've seen it and I watched some of it the other night when ABC ran it. In his day, Heston, IMO, was the greatest actor who ever lived. And there's nothing like a DeMille epic. I could spend a day watching this, Ben Hur, and The Greatest Show on Earth(I say all day because it would take all day to watch these movies:D).

    Raining and changeable out here.

    TOTD: Bastard Out of Carolina. That is some top-notch directing and acting. :)

    They Live, while listening to a radio interview with Roddy Piper.

    This is Spinal Tap. The 18'' Stonehenge monument with the dancing midgets was priceless.
