What a great story that is. I just saw The Scarlet Letter at the local rep cinema (only two weeks after TCM played it, but I held out for the big screen, heh), and was blown away again by how great she is. She can say more with her eyes or the tilt of her head or the shape of her mouth than most anyone I've ever seen. I really want to see La Boheme now.javascript:%20postComment(0);

Haha, I know how that is. All those should be free, though. Tweetie has a paid version, but also a free one if you don't mind seeing ads in your stream once in a while. I've never found them intrusive or bothersome.

I've only got a few paid apps - Delicious Library (good, but I don't use it as much as I thought I would), MarsEdit (blogging client which I use every day and love, but depends on your like/dislike of blogging clients), maybe a couple of others, but really, you can find free stuff if you just look a little harder. Also check out www.macheist.com - they post greatly price-reduced or free bundles of Mac software every so often. I just snagged WriteRoom and a few others the other day.

Welcome to the Mac cult! I made the switch in February, and I've never been happier. Apps to get - well, depends on what you want, obviously. Some basic apps/tools that I've found indispensable: Skitch (screencapping/markup tool), Perian (video codec pack), and Growl (enables desktop notifications for, like, every program). Tweetie is the best Mac Twitter client, I think, unless you use groups heavily.

I do like Growing Old Is Getting Old a lot, too. That's probably my third favorite. The others I like, but they don't stand out as much for me. Overall, I think Carnavas is the stronger album.

Thanks! You'll like it, though I bet you have most of the others already. :)

Thank you for creating such striking art! There was so much of it I liked I had to link the whole site. I really love the "Culture" piece.

Sure! I love your site's design as well as the stuff you post.

Yeah, I keep recording things and then having to delete them to keep my DVR from filling up! Thankfully stuff does repeat so I usually get another chance at them within a few weeks. And yes, I saw The Virgin Spring on there, but I haven't seen it and I tend not to include things I haven't seen unless I know enough about them to BS on the recommendation. ;) Often with those I'll try to record and catch them myself so I can include them the next time around. Bergman I have to be in the right mood for, though.

Thanks, Lori! I've been too busy to keep up as much as I'd like on online stuff, too, but when I saw this I had to share it. Glad they made it to church this morning, too! I know they usually try to make it, but it's sometimes difficult.

Yep! I enjoyed watching it the first time through, but when I took time to actually pay attention to the words, I liked them as well. Good words to remember.
