  1. I just finished reading the book "Claude and Camille (author is Stephanie Cowell)" about the Impressionist artist, Monet. It explains his paintings and his relationships with other artists and his one love, Camille Doncieux. Anyone who's admired Monet's water lilies and Gardens at Giverny might like this book. Very well written.

  2. Has anyone brought up "X-Files"? I liked it at first, but when David Duchovny left, it went downhill. Then there was the show "Millennium". It was on 1996 through 1999 and starred Lance Hendrickson has a former FBI profiler who joined with other agents to form the Millennium Group. They battled crime waves which took place near the beginning of the new century. Remember the panic about the year 2000 when everything was suppose to just shut down and the world coming to a halt? The show "Millennium" worked on that theory. it was dark and violent, but quite fascinating.
  3. I've been following it. The guy who did this must be long gone by now, maybe even out of the country. I wonder if anyone will eventually come forward with information. Or is the guy being protected, and maybe the reason he hasn't been caught.
  4. "Babylon 5". it ran from 1994-1998, and was about a futuristic space station in which humans and alien races tried to establish relationships and commerce. Very good show. I also have to bring up "Mystery Science Theater 3000" which ran on Comedy Central and later SyFy Channel. A man and his robots are shot into space by a mad scientist and his helper and forced to watch bad movies. They make sarcastic remarks while watching the movies and do skits in between. The show had a cult following and cans till be seen on You Tube.
  5. This is referring to "Keeping up Appearances?" No, I must have missed that part.
  6. I saw a few episodes of "Fawlty Towers". Another good one is "Keeping up Appearances." with Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced boo-kay). How would you like them as your neighbors? The British had some great shows.
  7. The British show "The Avengers." I wanted to be like Emma Peel. There also was a show called "The Prisoner" with Patrick McGoohan. You are number 6. Who is number one? be seeing you..... I also liked 'Married with Children." That show was outrageous, but so funny.
  8. Thanks for posting the link, Gramz. I had a headache last night and missed the show. Manning nailed the monologue!
  9. I just finished reading Anne Rice's newest Vampire Chronicles book "Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis." I don't know where she is going with this new one. I don't care about the replimoid creatures, and I miss Lestat being the Brat Prince he was in past books. I read the whole thing, but this latest just didn't cut it for me.

      I didn't know she had a new book.  That's too bad.  Rice can go on and on and on about things that you don't care about.  I remember one book where she wouldn't stop taking about the wall paper! That said, I loved the Vampire Chronicles so this is disappointing to hear

      You could try reading it; maybe you would like it more that I did. However, this isn't the same as her former Vampire Chronicles. This is kind of a mixture of science fiction and gothic. Much of this book relies on the explanation of cells and genetics. Depends on your interest in those kind of things. 

  10. I watched "Return of the King", the third installment in "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. I had seen that movie before, and it never fails to impress. Great story line and cinematography , it deserves 5 out of 5 stars. Excellent!
  11. I have to agree with the statement that "you won't find legends of tomorrow in an environment like this." Many bands wouldn't have gotten a chance today. If they don't sell or start making profits immediately, it's over for them. Profit seems to come before anything, even talent doesn't really matter anymore. I could mention some names (though I won't for certain reasons} that have me wondering how they became so famous when IMO they clearly lack talent. But music is an individual thing, so I'm sure others would disagree.
  12. Not interested. I heard that one of the reasons Green-Beckham was released is because he didn't apply himself. Although he has talent, he was more interested in nightlife than in playing. Rather not take the chance.
  13. I've seen some X-Men movies, but haven't seen Logan. I have some thoughts on the questions posted: It would be quicker for Wolverine to poke out his adversary's eye, but how would the director fill in the rest of the movie? It would be over too soon. Unless there would be plenty of car chases to fill in the time. Maybe Wolverine no longer has to use the bathroom because of his mutation. I have no idea why other characters never need to use the bathroom. Charles Xavier could be a clone. However, that should have explained in the movie. Someone seems to have gotten lazy in that case. The toxic metal used in Wolverine's claws will weaken him just because the writer says so. He has to be vulnerable to something just because it makes him more human --maybe. There are my reasons, whether they make sense or not. You're welcome.
  14. I've been reading Stephen King again. Just finished "The Stand", and am currently reading 'Misery". For those who are into King, I'm pondering now what would happen if Trashman man met Annie Wilkes. Then there is Randall Flagg. Maybe I have too much time on my hands......

      What's your favorite King novel? Just curious. Or book to movie adaptation?

      I have several favorite novels: "The Stand"; "Misery" and King's newer book, "Revival". 

       

      As far as book to movie adaptation: "The Stand" miniseries. The film "Misery" wasn't quite as good as the book, but Kathy Bates hit it out of the park as far as acting. I also liked the movie "The Shining." 

       

  15. I live in Fort Wayne also and going to work passed over the bridge where they found Hardy's body. At first I wondered why there were fire trucks and police cars around that area; the traffic was closed to one lane. Turns out that they had found Hardy. They don't know the cause of death yet. Sad story.
