This was supposed to be a blog about extracting every ounce of pleasure from life, but it seems to be, in fact, largely a dream journal with notes on baking, Trader Joe's, and celebrity chefs.
I had to ask the google what the "satc movie" was, so no. I did see a few episodes, back in the day, but mostly I didn't have HBO; I liked it well enough, I suppose, so it's not anitpathy so much as apathy.
Didn't see the series, so don't care about the movie. Women in five thousand dollar shoes -- can't relate.
Ditto narya, except I knew what SATC meant. I enjoyed the TV show, but not enough to spend $9 at the theater. I suppose I'll borrow it when it gets to Netflix."Indiana Jones," however, is another matter. I want to see it, but I don't, because it probably isn't very good, or at least not as good as the originals. What to do, what to do...[I had too many "though"s in the previous comment, and it was bothering me.]
One of fave local movie reviewers called it "Indiana Jones and the AARP." He said it was okay--didn't make much sense, but there was lots of running around/action. I don't remember the last time I saw a movie AT the movies, though. I think it was with Chuck, so at least three years ago?
Narya, we're even. I'm always Googling things like "ITOH" and "IIRC" when I'm reading your blog. Incidentally, I just had to Google IIRC to make sure that was the correct combination of letters. ;)Larry, I can't relate, either. Not to mention that they are New York women in $5,000 shoes. New Yorkers are another breed entirely.Ann, Metflix is my plan as well.I have a weird fascination-repulsion with SATC. The characters annoy the crap out of me, with their selfish, materialistic, narrow, silly ways; and yet, I can't stop watching. It's like eating junk food. I don't think I could stand it for 2.5 hours in the theater, but I will probably watch the DVD in small chunks someday.
Yeah, I can't relate, either, but there's something I find interesting about the characters. As pop culture. As stereotypes. As sociological entities.Plus it amuses me that certain groups of people take the show so seriously. OMG, a completely fictional television program about WOMEN having SEX in a CITY!! To what is the world coming?
Ann, I also find something interesting about the characters. It's like fictitious anthropology.Oh, and people take SATC very seriously in other ways, too. Read about women weeping at "Carrie's stoop" in NYC:http://www.newsweek.com/id/137300
