    You requested a Moroni Olsen. Whatever that is . . .

    This reminds me strongly of this: It is a story page concerning a Japanese girl who is born with pink hair. Pink hair in anime signifies being a main character and/or the hero of the story. She rebels against this and does not want to be a hero. I know few of the tropes of anime but it was very clearly a wild parody.

    That's a nice car!

    In: How to Steal a Million (1966): I love this car very much! It would be wonderful for scooting around in traffic. It is listed as: Autobianchi Eden Roc (1965)

    That is the cropped image which appears in a meme with the tag: "Apparently there is a new choice next to a burial or cremation." I have tried to trace the image to its source but have sadly been unsuccessful. I am still hoping that it was in a movie.

    I believe that it is at all times a fairly good bet that I am being cheeky to some extent.

    I am truly of two minds concerning it. I first thought and accepted it as a simple photograph. Later thought has led to questions because the image quality is what one might expect of a screen-capture of a good freeze-frame of a movie playing on a computer. It is also that the hearse is slightly atypical in being so tall. I have seen similar used only for prominent people where the procession is a part of the public viewing. It seems incongruous to have such an aloof vehicle towing a chipper through the countryside. It seems to me odd that a hearse would even be fitted with a towing hitch. It might fit well into the plot of a movie. I truly would be more comfortable if this was an image from a movie rather than a real thing.

    I have searched images of that movie and can find no similar scenes. It is also that the wood chipper seems to be of a different design and the model of hearse is not represented. It is quite possible that my Google-Fu is letting me down miserably. I can think of no other movie which it might be.

    Haunted Houses

    Even the Wind Is Afraid (1968) It is more dormitory/institution than 'house' in strict sense. I found the movie to be more interesting and engaging than the summary makes it seem.

    As long as I have all of you together: can any person here tell me if this is a screenshot from a movie?

    What are you reading

    I have now completed the first three volumes of Brooke McEldowney's collected works: Out Whom Shall We Gross?, Sonata for Piano and Armpit and The Day My Puberty Detonated. I had hoped to start his: The Bösendorfer Heard Round the World which is a stand-alone story but our copy seems to be misplaced. I do hope I do not have to replace it. The people at the publishing house are quite wonderful but I do hate to bother them with small orders.

    Maria On Sesame Street

    I have seen very little of the program but I love very much how inspirational it is:

    Archaic Expressions in Films

    Not as sharp as a rowboat. As calm as a turtle. Daddy was a pistol. I am a son-of-a-gun.

    I Just Watched...

    I love this movie very much! I believe that Myrna Loy played a menacing oriental after this only in: The Mask of Fu Manchu (1932). She was perfect in both. I am glad that she stopped playing such roles before she began to parody herself. Ricardo Cortez and C. Henry Gordon are a joy to watch. It did sadden me that the scenes of Betty Furness as one of the women were cut. I had watched her on: I've Got a Secret and What's My Line? and had hoped to see what acting credentials led her to be a regular on such panel shows. It was only after missing her in this movie that I learned that her role and another role were cut. I do not know if those scenes were removed prior to the movie's release or were a part of its later reduction.

    Old King Arthur Movies

    I am surprised that no one has mentioned: Camelot (1967). Musicals are not to my taste but this movie is dear to my heart. It may be because the leads are not highly accomplished singers and so there is a bit of realism in their less-than-gosh-wow singing. How can one not love a movie which remains steadfast to its innermost truths: King Arthur: This is the season for gathering flowers. Lancelot Du Lac: Knights? Gathering flowers? King Arthur: Well, someone has to do it! I find the series: Merlin (2008-2012) to be a very interesting and entertaining take on the King Arthur legend. I appreciate irreverence and so to see King Arthur as a bit of a prat is quite refreshing.

    Sympathetic Characters And Someone To Root For

    I believe that is little different from what you might expect to see in any bar near an engineering college on cheap-pitcher night.

    It is my understanding that they are very welcoming and supportive of other immigrés. The government seems to have also a better attitude towards people from Ukraine than the United States does. That is why I stated that it would have been easier for me if I had chosen Canada.

    Sympathetic Characters And Someone To Root For

    I would not say that I would root for him in any particular manner but I do find that I sympathize with Godzilla. The same is true for the Creature from the Black Lagoon and any number of other innocents who come to be seen as villains through no fault of their own.

    Sympathetic Characters And Someone To Root For

    I believe that the important factor is that it is possible to identify with a character. I do not mean by this: "I understand fully this character's hopes and dreams because I also am a sex worker who became a nun who is now studying for a master's degree in Sino-Welsh Archaeological Motifs in Shakespearean Sonnets." It can be simply knowing a person of the character's type and having an appreciation for their thoughts and feelings and reactions if placed in such a situation. "Seeing things from another person's point of view" is a natural part of being human and so we can internalize to some degree the pressures the character is facing and the turmoil they cause.

    NOW I'M REALLY MAD ! ! !

    I realize fully that I may be taking a position which will be ridiculed but I will state openly that it would have been far easier for me to establish in Canada but I believe I made the correct move by selecting United States.
