Take two

Last Friday the Carnival of the Mundane was supposed to start, but Blogger decided to go all crazy and it didn't happen. Cheryl over at Bread and Bread finally has the Carnival working. (Well, sort of.) As a favor to me, I'd like you to at least visit and read one or two of the entries. Leave a comment and tell them I sent you. Pretty please.

I'm not sure how profound my entry was, but odds are you'll get a kick out of my Epic Battle with a Q-tip.

I have brand new stuff; a top ten list, a Hyperion X, some stories and movie reviews, but I don't even have the energy to put them on the site. Last week was one I just don't want to repeat, and I'm still sluggish. There is plenty of material for you to look at, including two Audio Top Ten Lists, and a great questionnaire on Monkey Barn. I except to see dozens of comments before tomorrow.

Speaking of tomorrow, that's soon enough to start in on the changes I have planned for the site. I'm not sure if you'll like them but...well, tomorrow is early enough. Anyone visiting us from the Carnival feel free to look around; try any of the rooms you like.

The rest of you I'll see in the morning.

Hey dude, thanks for commenting. Your page is nice; good layout.

Anyways, here is my feeling about the Manchurian Candidate and most remakes in general:

One line from one of my favorite hip-hop songs goes, "your arms are too short to box with God." That's my general theory about remakes. It's hard to mess with perfection. Take Psycho. If you're into movies, I take you as a Hitchcock fan. The remake simply bit the bag. Meryl Streep is no Angela Lansbury. Meryl Streep is good in typecast roles (see: the Hours, Adaptation, et al.)

Just my two cents.

I can name 3 off the top of my head
1) Jodie Foster
2) Judi Dench (sp?)
3) Sissy Spasek (have you seen coal miner's daughter? She stole the show!)
