Movie Rec!!!!  
My oldest daughter and I just got back from seeing the movie "Thank You For Smoking."

I have to say this is the first time in a long time (probably since Bill Murray did actual comedy) that I have seriously laughed at a movie. This movie is perfect. The dialog is extremely fast and witty, the movie never lags anywhere and before you know it, the movie is over leaving you with a very satisfied feeling of NOT having wasted 2 hours of your life.

And for those of you who know about the movie already, do you know of where I can get icons from this movie?

I'm so happy to hear you say that because I have wanted nothing more than to see that movie since I saw the first previews. But I didn't actually know it was out yet. I don't get out much and since there has been nothing but a lot of crap movies coming out up until lately I just haven't paid attention. But since you said it's worth it I think I'll have to take the time to go see it.....SATURN

Go! Now! Well not now (I don't know what time it is exactly where you are - hell I don't even know what time it is now here) but GO before it's not out anymore. Also, if it's still out, go see Art School Confidential. Very good movie.

I meant to make a movie post rec for that too but I got sidetracked.

I would but unfortunately it's 1:00am, I'm broke and my kids are asleep. I live such a mundane exsistance. Plus I live in the high desert which means everything closes at nine anyways. God that's pathetic, especially since I am like the biggest night owl you will ever meet. But I will go see it as soon as I have some money. Also what's Art School Confidential about? I don't remember that one......SATURN......This really is like tag.

It's about a guy who makes it into an exclusive art school based on his artistic talent (sound familiar?). He actually has talent, unlike all the other students who are surviving there by finding clever ways of performing art. John Malkovich is an art teacher whose art consists of drawing triangles and can't figure out when his big break will come. The boy is wonderful. He falls in love with one of the models and she doesn't really give him the time of day. There's so much, but it is such a quirky movie.

If you can't go to see a movie because of funds, then rent Mysterious Skin about two boys who were molested when they were young and now that they're both 19, the effects of that time surface. It's hard to explain and sometimes hard to watch (I have 3 girls and 2 boys so child molestation for me, is not to be taken lightly - but it is a wonderful way to show that these things do have consequences).

Hmmm! High Desert? Imperial Valley, California? Kern County? Possibly Bakersfield or Fresno? I used to live in Pasadena. I now live up here about 1/2 an hour away from Seattle.

Mysterious Skin. It does sound good and I know what you mean about the whole Child Molestation thing. I would seriously kill anyone who even thought of touching either of my kids. But it does sound interesting. So does the Art School one,, I'll have to look into that. D o you know that one movie that Gale did with Melanie(QAF name cause my mind is drawing a blank on her real name) and then that guy from The Practice? It looked really good but I can't remember the name and I haven't heard anything about it. I wonder what happened to it, cause I'd like to see that too.

High Desert: meaning Victorville, it suchs here. It's just way to small I think, and at the same time getting even more crowded while not growing. The only thing that seems to be getting done here is housing and that even seems to be getting smaller, the backyards alone are like two big. It's sad. Seattle, I have actually thought about that being one place I wouldn't mind moving to. However my hubby doesn't feel the same as I do. He wants to move somewhere where there is literally no one and nothing around, and well that's something I just couldn't deal with.....SATURN

I don't know the movie but I bet if you look around on the Babylon Newsletter _in_babylon, you could find references to it. Her name is Michelle Clunie, I believe.

I know Victorville! My husband and I used to go motorcycle racing up by Willow Springs and there were times where we ended up in Victorville (if I remember correctly, it was nowehere near Willow Springs but we got lost an awful lot).

If he wants to move somewhere where there is no one, he needs to move to Wyoming. I live in the area where they filmed Twin Peaks. It's grown quite a bit since then but still maintains alot of its small town charm.

We are at such a stand still when it comes to moving. I am such a city girl I mean if I had my choice I'd live in New York. If he had his choice he'd live in Alaska, and I mean that literally. Now me I love the winter and can't stand the heat in any way shape or form but the big city just does it for me. I went there (NY) a couple of years ago and from the moment I got there I thought this has got to be the greatest place on earth. I know it's most likely an overstatement but the point is is that I felt at home there even when I was walking the streets at three in the morning. It was just so perfect and all of the architecture and museums and just over all sites and feel of the place. It was just perfection in my book. Now my HUbby has only been there once he's a truck driver so he went there for work and had a horrible experience and now he refuses to go back even for a visit even though I have explained to him that it would be for fun not work and that there is just so much to see and do. I'm not to worried though he'll give in eventually. He always does, he's such a great man and he'll do just about anything in his power to make me happy and give me what I want. How much better could that be?.......SATURN
