so close to your birthday it must mean something. perhaps that your birthday present from your husband will be that he takes care of your kids and buy you a ticket to Stockholm so you can have a Brokieweekend with Heath and us.  :D :D :D :D 


If only. I'm dreading to see this movie, because it will be the last effin piece, but I'll be in the theater first chance I get. Would be much easier to do it with fellow Brokies.

That is exactly how I feel, the Imaginarium, then no more. OMG how bad does that sound. :(

There was a showing at the Denver International Film Festival, which I missed because I had this mistaken idea that I should be working instead. But now that I am a lady of leisure again, I am searching the papers for some sign of its debut, and not finding ennithing!

Great to hear! IMO, not only does Heath deserve accolades for his last role and body of work, but also Terry Gilliam, who seems to have the worst luck as a director. Did anyone see the documentary "Lost in La Mancha" about his efforts to bring the Cervantes epic to film?

I have always thought Gilliam was a "jinxed" genius. He was plagued with problems during filming  Don Quioxte and yet he has still not given up on it as a future, to be revived project.
 Sometimes we only appreciate true inspirational genius when it has died.
