Oh, you're welcome Amanda!   ;)

I'll post more when/if I unearth some more pix.
I can't tell you how thrilled I was to find out this little piece of news today.  Made my morning, I can tell you.  ;)

I had read sometime last year that Affinity was going to be adapted into a movie but didn't know any more than that.
So today, I googled around and was very pleased to see that it has already been shot and will be showing at film festivals!

Looks like I'm going to go back and read the book again before the dvd release.  I am not prepared to be depressed about it all over again, but I think this time, the blow will be softer than it was before.  :)

Amanda,  :)

How are ya, Bud?

I was hanging out on afterellen.com the other day when I ran into a pretty good review of Affinity, the movie.
Naturally, I thought of you  ;) and snagged some of the pics I found there to show you...











Here is the link to the Affinity review on AfterEllen.

p/s:  I am so glad Photobucket is back up after the site was hacked a few days ago.  Glad to see all pics are still there!

I'm reading about the main character's early life, it is fascinating and it reminds me very much of Memoirs of a Geisha.

There's definitely a very wistful feel to the way Tipping the Velvet deals with Nancy's descriptions and memories of her childhood/ teenage years as an oyster girl.  Some of those types of descriptions can be so powerful in Waters' writing.

Hey girls!

Lee ~ Welcome to the SW Fan club.
Wonderful to see you here!  8)

Like Amanda, ! can't wait to hear what you think of Tipping the Velvet. (either when you are done, or as you go... although it might be better to get to the end before we discuss).  :)


Amanda ~ Thank you for convincing Lee to check out SW's work.  It is great to have another person posting in here.  Speaking of which ... didn't Lynne start reading TTV as well?  I remember she bought the book a while back.  Lynne, where are ya?  ;)

~M
