  1. I mean, I fully have always acknowledged that Cakebug Tranch is the stupidest login name ever, but I always liked that it was so weird that it has absolutely no connection to my real life and I could never be tracked down through this forum (it sounds paranoid but I had some bad experiences of the sort through Twitter, using real names or identifiers). I like that it's completely random, even though it's super dumb.
  2. Hey guys! My parents are visiting from Australia so things have been so crazy around here that I haven't actually logged on to the forum since the update. Sorry to be AWOL, but it's nice to know that there's a community there waiting without judgement for when I finally get my act back together. Then again, I start a new four-course teaching load on the 27th, so things may well go to hell for a bit there too. Anyway, have fun with Billy Joel-singing stray animals! I'll be back soon, I'm sure! (Also, I should probably change my name back: Kit Walker was my original login name but I changed it years ago...)

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    I went out to the Toronto International Film Festival Bell Lightbox last night to catch the 70mm version of '2001', and I can't say enough great things about it. I fully agree with Paul's take on the sound - the signal sound from the moon was truly jarring, for example - and the placement of the intermission (15 minutes) right after the lip-reading revelation was mind-blowing even to the group of film geeks in the cinema last night who knew it was coming. I can't imagine how incredible it would have been to viewers in 1968. I have a longer review on my letterboxd account, but in short, please go see this if you can. It's incredible.

    That's how I felt when I finally read Ulysses - I had been daunted by its 'Mount Everest' status but once I made the decision to read and not to try to understand everything, but let it wash over me, I loved the experience in just about exactly the same way I loved 2001.

    Or if it was, it would be a Rob Schneider comedy treatment.

    I really appreciated how much attention he gave that sign. Really read it through, which suggested that it was serious business.

    I thought I had seen 2001 until this week when I watched it again and found that aside from a couple of iconic scenes and things I knew from The Simpsons, I definitely hadn't seen it. I absolutely loved it and immediately booked tickets to see Christopher Nolan's 70mm re-release of the film that is playing in Toronto this week only. I'm seeing that on Wednesday - looking forward to reporting about how it looks on a giant screen!
  10. On the other hand, if you see any Illinois Nazis on a bridge, then go for it.

    It's not Wright, it's the truckload of money Sony dumped on his doorstep. He went from being staunchly anti-sequel to writing it in minutes.

    I'm not sure about anything. But honestly, would anyone be surprised if it were true? I mean, http://www.nme.com/news/film/baby-driver-2-already-in-the-works-2168341

    This popped up on Letterboxd this morning. https://letterboxd.c...m/la-la-land-2/ Why?!?!? (I guess I'm not the only one asking: https://letterboxd.com/eivrylp/list/why-would-someone-do-that/) Also, I wish this article was real. https://aboveaverage...ing-saving-ska/

    Episode 191 - Rad: LIVE!

    That lady also said that the parade (or her inability to remove her cake from the oven) was "UnAmerican." Seems like she's got a pretty 2018 interpretation of what that word means way back in 1986, where "UnAmerican" equals "inconvenient."
