  2. > {quote:title=misswonderly wrote:}{quote} > Tip when making chili: a secret ingredient that makes it delicious is about a teaspoon -no, dammit, let's throw caution to the winds - a tablespoon of cocoa. Real cocoa powder, no sugar added. Add it to the chili around the same time you'd add the chili powder. I thought that was my secret until Capuchin made his winter chili. He adds a tablespoon for each two pounds of meat. I also like to mix cocoa powder with sour cream and add it to each bowl just before serving.
  3. You may wish to add for nerdlicks such as me: December 7 on SyFy Channel 9:00 PM (ET) *Eureka* O Little Town 10:00 PM (ET) *Warehouse 13* Secret Santa I believe both are new holiday specials outside the series.
  4. > {quote:title=molo14 wrote:}{quote} > Sansfin, A big congratulations to you on your win! I'm looking forward to your hosting the next one, but just enjoy the accolades for now. Thank you for your kind words. I believe I am still too much in shock to truly enjoy the honor bestowed upon me.
  5. > {quote:title=filmlover wrote:}{quote} > Congratulations! > As to the starting time of the next Challenge, I would vote for Feb. Thank you for your kind words. Looking at all the variables and other activities I am now thinking February 1 will be a good date. As this is my first experience hosting the Challenge I hope I can rely on the Old Masters to quickly set me straight if I err in any regard.
  6. *Chocolat* (2000) is for those who worship chocolate. Having chocolate properly mixed with chili powder as shown in the movie is a religious experience. Does that count?
  7. Thank you all for your kind words. I am still very much stunned that my schedule won over such wonderful competition. I am now wondering when the next Challenge should be. They were three months apart for the first two years but since then have been four months apart. This would make the next one either in January or February. Should I split the difference and begin it in the middle of January? I will very much appreciate everyone's advice.
  8. I am very sorry to say that I can think of nothing witty to say. I am as nearly speechless as I can be. Thank you for your votes. I am honored you choose me over such other worthy entrants. You say that being the winner means I host the next Challenge. The reward for my hard work is more hard work? That reminds me very much of many jobs I have had. All the schedules were quite wonderful. You are all to be congratulated! Thank you for running an excellent Challenge countessdelave!
  9. filmlover - Thank you very much for your vote. In your comment in the original thread you said my Vole day left your head spinning. That was my hope. It is said that if you cannot dazzle voters with your brilliance you must blind them with ... audacity. Fedya - Thank you very much for your vote. I feel as if I am waiting for the other shoe to drop to show this is a Bizarro World way of showing your support for all the other schedules. It is truly an honor to receive votes from such worthy competitors who have themselves created wonderful schedules in this Challenge and many past Chall
  10. It has been many years since I have seen it but I remember *Kentucky Fried Movie* (1977) having several good minutes in it. Henry Gibson's skit about death was quite funny.
  11. Applesauce means the same as horseradish. The Cat's Meow means the same as The Bee's Knees. Java is also Joe. A Darb is the opposite of A Piker. Many people bought their Giggle Juice at a Juice Joint.
  12. *We're No Angel Food Cake* - After Bogie wins the Rachael Ray look-alike contest he is a guest on her show and he is disappointed he will not be allowed to make his signature dish because R.R. does not allow anything that requires careful measuring.
  13. > {quote:title=InFlynn wrote:}{quote} > I used to hear, "What do you want me to do, stand on my head and spit nickels"? I still don't know what that was supposed to mean. I believe that is reference to slot machines. The pay-out chute was located at the bottom of the machine. Phrase meant to provide riches for little input.
  14. I very much love American films but may I suggest you chose a movie from 1950s or 1960s Japan. Ozu, Ichikawa and Kurosawa used image very strongly to tell the story in ways dialogue does not. I believe a person strongly interested in design elements would find them very rich.
  15. Imitation is the sincerest form of plagiarism. Thank you for your encouraging words tcmprogrammr. I would be thrilled if you would steal some of my themes, ideas or associations for use in a real schedule.
  16. I am surprised a movie based on FEMEN activists has not been made. The drama of going topless in Kiev would surely interest American men even if they do not support women's rights.
  17. The only thing which I find easy about making decision is that I cannot vote for myself so that narrows it down to six but I am firmly decided that countessdelave is a winner for running a great Challenge!
  18. More series films shown as marathons or at a regular time each week. More foreign films. More animation other than cartoons. More cartoons. More tributes to character actors. Less reviewers/historians/analysts/interviews. Less anything that is not an actual movie.
  19. > {quote:title=hamradio wrote:}{quote} > markfp2 wrote: > << Oh, and don't you just love the crazy Indian bus drivers? >> > > They are about as skilled in driving as giving tech support. I believe this falls into the same area as the advice: "Never ride on an airline which hires pilots who believe in reincarnation."
  20. I remember uproar when TCM showed Cousteau documentaries. To air made-for-television mini-series would incite riot!
  21. I went to many movies in big theaters at home and go to everything I can when I travel to where they have big theaters. I have very hard time feeling true movie experience in cineplex. I see little difference between mall theater and widescreen at home. It is cost, noise and tiny theaters that make me not go to movies as often as I once did.
  22. When I learned to speak English we were taught: "Happy Christmas". Capuchin says it is because we had Englishman for teacher. I have mostly heard on television: "Merry Christmas" but there are times it is said as "Happy Christmas". What is the real difference?
  23. > {quote:title=lzcutter wrote:}{quote} > "I will love you in a car, > > And I will love you near and far > > I will love you here and I will love there > > I will love you everywhere!" That is so wonderful tears are running down my cheeks! I hope your esso appreciates what a brave, delightful and creative lady he married! Capuchin and I have talked much about our vows and where to hold ceremony. It was going to be fast and simple civil ceremony but now that we must wait we have time to plan. I do not believe I could think of a thing as wonderful and
  24. I like very much the Harry Potter books and movies. I will not read last book until I can also be watching it on DVD. That will mean waiting until second part is released. I find it very interesting to read while watching movie and this will be my very first time to do it when I have not read book or seen movie before.
  25. > {quote:title=lzcutter wrote:}{quote} > My wedding vows to Mr C were done in Seuss verse. That is so very sweet! It was also perfect timing to let him think you were normal until it was too late for him to back out. I am sorry to say I do not know of Bloom County. I was introduced to Dr. Suess by things not written by him: If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port And the bus is interrupted as a very last resort And the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort Then the socket packet pocket has an error to report I will look for Charlie Brown's C
