My WIFE'S name was Alicia, so I give this young lady some slack.  ;)  BTW----

I never noticed, does she( and any of you) pronounce her name, "Ah-LEE see-ya", or Ah-LEASH-ah"?  

I've heard it both ways, but when we met, my wife introduced herself as the first one.

I'm glad to hear it. It seems like people are very hard on Alicia. I really like her. She seems sincere and enthusiastic. Plus she turned me on to two foreign films I had heard of but had never sat down to watch in her "Criterion Closet Picks" youtube video - Lady Snowblood and Ikiru.

The Criterion Closet Picks videos sound like the dumbest thing in concept, but I've enjoyed nearly every one of them. It's like going to a DVD store (when such things were more common) with someone who knows their stuff, or is at least passionate about movies.

I've heard her introduce herself as "Ah-leash-ah." Both pronunciations are pretty.

I have to admit, I've been a little iffy on her delivery, but she doesn't irk me the way some other hosts and guest hosts do, and she will likely get more comfortable in the role.

a propos of nothing, LADY SNOWBLOOD is REALLY COOL isn't it????
