And back on the movie topic: I saw the movie "Rent" on Tuesday night. Well, really it's more of a musical. I love LOVE the music in it! Now I want to own it and will probably, after the next pay day, start to haunt the pawn shop where son and friends buy their movies to try to find it. I'd heard about this movie for years and when I saw it at the library on Monday night, scooped it and three others up. Monday night was a nasty, slippery night but I had both movies and books due at the library because the library had been closed for four days.

The library movie I saw last night was "The Libertine". Maybe I'm just being a prude about it but this movie was a bit much for me. The "c" word was sprinkled throughout. Despite the best efforts of "The Vagina Monologues" I really don't like that word. The movie is set in "decadent 17th century London" and the movie jacket isn't kidding about the decadent part. Johnny Depp and John Malkovich star, and I really like the both of them and they did an understanding acting job, especially Depp (as always!) But this movie was so unlike the pretty little romantic novels I've read about that period that I just can't like it and never want to see it again. I thought I appreciated gritty and real but not in this case, bring me back those sweet little romances!

Well, hope your day is sweet, as opposed to gritty and real!

I am not big on musicals but know Rent and heard great things about it,
I tend to buy the movies I like which is evedent by the 2 bookcases that i have filled with them.

Some words are harsh and it doesn't make you a prude.
I know the word you are refering too and I have always believed that words are harmless, it's how they are used that matters.

Have a nice day.

I haven't seen either of those movies. Rent sounds ok though.
Hope you have a good day as well although at this time of the day it would mean Friday, ha,ha..

Seasons of Love: I can NEVER remember how many nights and minutes and hours and always find myself singing about random number combos.

I really need to learn that song.
