Finally, Lisa and I are checking it out on its last showing this Thursday night!
To be honest, I think the real reason this "out of nowhere" film got as much attention as it did was solely due to its director. Think about it, Danny Boyle. A man without whom, we as an American audience would have never been introduced to the seedy underbelly of London through the film Trainspotting,
nor the acting abilities of Robert Carlyle, Kelly MacDonald, and of course, Ewan McGregor.
Boyle really was the only "name" within Slumdog. Everyone else as far as I'm concerned was more or less "name" only within India. I'm not saying the only reason that Slumdog did so well was only because of Danny Boyle's attachment, I'm simply saying that it's got that kind of power which enhanced it for being a recognized OSCAR nominated film! If that makes sense...
Check it out! I mean this is like paradise! The place looks like beach front property reminiscent of town houses on a boardwalk in New Orleans!
YES! YES! YES!!! After having an absolute blast 9 years ago in Orlando, Florida for 'Herbie Days at Disney World,' our online fanbase is coming together once again, this time in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the original Herbie film, The Love Bug!!! Complete with special appearances by actor Joaquin Garay III from Herbie Goes Bananas, various fan replicars, and even some original movie cars! It's going to be one groovy event for us Herbie fans!
Well, I guess that pretty much catches everyone up! Lisa and I are doing wonderfully. I am very happy that we'll be living together soon!!! And right near a casino too! Tivoli is actually right across from Santa Fe Station! Very nice!
Mom and Dad are well. In fact, they're on a Carribbean cruise right now! Back in 2007 they wanted to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary by taking a trip to Rome. Unfortunately, due to the attempts at selling our former house in Avondale constantly failing, this proved to be impossible. Once it finally sold, they made plans last Summer to take a Spring trip for themselves on a cruise! I hope they're having fun! I know they could use it!
So, that should take care of everything now! I hope you've enjoyed the update! Now, without further ado, onto the DVD UPDATE!!!
