    I am angry Paul didn't find out if Dan is the forum poster but I am willing to let that slide. Like some of you weirdos would figure out his IP or whatever. But Cameron! They used part of your post about champions but cut out the part on David and Goliath! Makes it sound like you are making shit up. I am starting a #Justice4Cameron campaign. Please donate.

    I wish I could see this but I'm probably going to be out again this week! I'm going away to visit my oldest friend for a girls weekend! (in that I've known her the longest. My oldest friend is in her 60's should anyone care.) This looks fascinating because my mom loved the Talking Heads and I remember always looking at their cds and then blatantly ignoring them for Maddona, The Rolling Stones, and my favorites The Barenaked Ladies and this one Sarah Brightman singing the best of Andrew Loyd Webber BECAUSE I HAVE TASTE (and by taste I mean I was an insufferable theater nerd)

    There's also a doc coming out on Monday on Smithsonian about the actual Green Book and the black Americans that had to use it.

    I think you should win C&O forever and for all time for discovering Dan's true identity. You should get Daniel Radcliffe's voice on your voicemail a la Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me.

    So I went and read possibly!Daniel’s post in the Lake House thread. Didn’t realize it was a poem. Why wasn’t this read in corrections and omissions at least? He must have been devastated to not win no prize.

    No, not the one where Tommy Lee Jones listens to U2's Joshua Tree while making bombs. I'm talking about the fourth and final film The Coreys made together, the Canadian Basic Instinct rip-off Blown Away. All I remember about this movie is that even though this movie starred the hottest young stars the early 90s had to offer going straight to the bone zone (there is a LOT of fucking in this movie), this movie was the least sexy, most creepy erotic thriller from the era. From IMDb I mean, it had Baywatch-era Nicole Eggert as the femme fatale and she had the look down but somehow this movie managed to make her just sad. Everyone looks coked up and phoning it in and the Coreys have lost their late 80s magic by this point. This is a perfect HDTGM candidate.

    I'm glad no one called in to support Green Book and I'm disappointed in Paul and Amy for glossing over how problematic it is. First, it's not a movie about Don Shirley and his white driver. It's about Tony Vallelonga and his story about driving for an African-American pianist in the South. Those are two very different films. Green Book was written by Vallelonga's son. The Shirley family has come out strongly against this movie for its inaccuracies, such as Shriley's alleged estrangement from his families, and even for the movie being made at all, which Shirley turned down during his lifetime. From indiwire: "I remember very, very clearly, going back 30 years, my uncle had been approached by Nick Vallelonga, the son of Tony Vallelonga, about a movie on his life, and Uncle Donald told me about it,” Edwin said “He flatly refused.” Edwin and Maurice said they heard from Mahershala Ali shortly after they spoke about their issues with the film on NPR in late November. “I got a call from Mahershala Ali, a very, very respectful phone call, from him personally,” Maurice said. “He called me and my Uncle Maurice in which he apologized profusely if there had been any offense.” “What he said was, ‘If I have offended you, I am so, so terribly sorry. I did the best I could with the material I had. I was not aware that there were close relatives with whom I could have consulted to add some nuance to the character,’” added Edwin. Vanity Fair talks about how Mahershala Ali didn't even get a chance to meet the Shirley family prior to shooting. Aside from any racial feel-goodness this might give a white movie-going or Oscar-voting public, you can't talk about this movie without talking about its overwhelming problems. If this film wins any Oscars, I won't be shocked, but I will be pissed off. Also, the "Green Book" isn't a book of music, it's a travel guide for the Jim Crow south. Per Wikipedia: "The Negro Motorist Green Book [was] an annual guidebook for African-American roadtrippers, commonly referred to simply as the Green Book. It was originated and published by New York City mailman Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1966, during the era of Jim Crow laws, when open and often legally prescribed discrimination against non-whites was widespread. Although pervasive racial discrimination and poverty limited black car ownership, the emerging African-American middle class bought automobiles as soon as they could, but faced a variety of dangers and inconveniences along the road, from refusal of food and lodging to arbitrary arrest. In response, Green wrote his guide to services and places relatively friendly to African-Americans, eventually expanding its coverage from the New York area to much of North America, as well as founding a travel agency."

    Well, now you’ve got me curious... I checked out his post for The Lake House, and was pleased to discover that, not only was I the only person to like “Dan’s” post, I suggested he should have it submitted to The New Yorker - because it was written in a lovely free verse. Which means, while Elektra may be inadvertently stalking Mr. Radcliffe, he and I obviously share an ineffable, metaphysical connection that none of you plebs can ever even begin to understand. We are bound for one another like Keanu and Sandy-B. Fact. (And, if it turns out forum Dan isn’t, like, Dan Dan, then that’s cool, too. I’l take any Dan in the storm really. I’ll horde all the Dans.)

    Will Ferrell did beer commercials in Sweden. The Jim Dale audiobooks are very good. But I saw everyone freaking out that Harry Potter was with Jason and I thought, "but maybe Jim Dale is Jason's Harry Potter and Radcliffe is some upstart youngun." Also Jason is in show business so I am sure he knows how to play it cool. I still want to know if it was Daniel who posted Dragon Blade in our movie recommendations thread (and also, randomly, a theory about the Lake House). IS HE ONE OF US? Did you even ask, Paul? Jesus. Think about us for a change. The poster was originally "dandandan" and he changed his name after I suggested he might be Daniel Radcliffe. Suspicious? Yes. Am I stalking him? Again, I am not sure.

    I don't know if Jason watched the movies, but I saw in a Vanity Fair interview that he has listened to the audiobooks. Have you ever gone on a road trip like this yourself? There were years where I lived in New York but would come out to L.A. for pilot season for two and a half or three months, and I would drive every year. I’m trying to think of any good, weird stories. Honestly, most of them are just, like, me in the middle of the night listening to the Harry Potter audiobooks narrated by Jim Daleand just, like, openly weeping. And that’s not at all a joke [Laughs] I think people picture me driving cross-country as if I’m one of my characters, stopping at strip clubs and getting into bar fights. But it’s so much more likely that I would be like driving late into the night listening to Harry Potter and crying.

    For Gangs Of New York, I saw something where they had to make up Daniel Day Lewis' accent because we genuinely don't know how people sounded then. They can do some educated speculation. There might be recordings from people in the area who were alive at the time or written descriptions. It would be inaccurate to have Bill The Butcher speak with a modern Brooklyn accent in the 1860s. If we have to speculate how people sounded 150 years ago, 2000 years is a real shot in the dark. We don't even know definitively what Latin sounded like. We certainly aren't going to know the accent people used to speak it.
