Can't explain it, but I felt the need, and it felt better after I did it.
Today, while I had my new wide screen monitor hooked up to my laptop to watch those DVDs last night, I went ahead and watched a (2000) movie I've owned for over a year now, but have never watched:
|Movie Synopsis: In Amores Perros (Love's a Bitch), a horrific car accident connects three stories, each involving characters dealing with loss, regret, and life's harsh realities, all in the name of love. Three interconnected stories about the different strata of life in Mexico City all resolve with a fatal car accident. Octavio is trying to raise enough money to run away with his sister-in-law, and decides to enter his dog Cofi into the world of dogfighting. After a dogfight goes bad, Octavio flees in his car, running a red light and causing the accident. Daniel and Valeria's new-found bliss is prematurely ended when she loses her leg in the accident. El Chivo is a homeless man who cares for stray dogs and is there to witness the collision.|
My one word summary of this movie is: Intense. If you are disturbed by dog violence, or are the kind of person that can't suspend your disbelief, then you will probably turn off this movie in the first 10 minutes (and it's probably for the best). I absolutely loved all two-and-a-half-hours of this movie.
Aside: It, too, was in Spanish with English subtitles, and I watched and "read" it at a volume that was comfortable to me.
Hardly a thing gives me more pleasure than to be able to click here, and for the fourth year in a row, see entries under every single day of the year. Another full year of blogging. Yay!
The beginning of a new year means the end of an old one, which also brings my friend Rob Shook's Year-End Reminder of Things You Should Do Annually. From Rob...
|Every year I post a list of the things I think folks should do, get done, or (actively) decide not to do—not just let fall by the wayside due to inaction. Here’s this year’s! Feel free to share this with friends & family. |
If you print this, it makes a real nice to-do list.
Joe and I met at Flex at 9:00 for some pool and karaoke. We played several games, and later, I played three games with Jeremy, who, intermittently during the night, seemed to be flirting with Patrick and vice-versa.
We left shortly after midnight, and stopped at The Borough for a midnight snack. I had their new Tenderloin Quesadilla, and it was most delicious.
