GRAN TORINO

I just got through watching my freshly bootlegged copy of the Clint Eastwood movie "Gran Torino". ***** 5 Stars.

We saw the previews when we went to see In Bruges (excellent). Bigjohn is ALL about the Clint movies - we're going to the multiplex to see it tomorrow.

Little side trip, as I am fighting with itunes to load on my computer. It has taken 2 days --- d/l'd and d/l'd only to get bizarre error message. I could get some songs no problem, but then another song, from same group, I was supposed to upgrade to itunes 8, which would again lead me to bizarre error message -- finally an email, which I will say,was promptly answered, and now it magically is loading. After numerous attempts to put new songs on Window Media Player, where I have 242 song cataloged as I want them, I find I have to load them on itunes. I started an hour ago, its on song 61. All this so I could spend the gift card my son got me for Christmas. I just have to wonder, why I am going to such difficulty to not bootleg the songs. Seems to me if it wasnt so God damned difficult to do the right thing, more people maybe would go that route.... hmmmm it may just be a little ironic, that the song being converted to itunes is Zombies "American Witch".....

I'd rather have the theater experience, and do my part to support the folks who make the films. Clint may not need the money, but thousands of the little people and the businesses and stockholders dependent on the box office, the industry itself can't survive unless people buy tickets and legal DVDs.

The street corners are how I pay for my downloads! Wait, was that an overshare?
I do agree with Smoke, 100%

Smoke, you really ought to head for Chicago or DC to clean up politics-impossible task. Some Chicago newspaper reported that that poor gray man who seems to envision himself as the dynamic person that Churchill was, Harry Reid, had conversation with Blago. Reid's aides confirm discussion took place about who he should and should not appoint to the open Senate seat. Among the "should nots" was Jesse Jackson Jr. He also had like conversations with the Governors of Co. and NY. Nothing illegal just politics as usual Now Blago spokespeople are saying Reid has a "conflict of interest" in refusing to seat Buriss- not worthy of mention in any of said conversations as a should or should not. My point in all of this is not to attack you, Smoke. My point is that it seems that politicians are a whole bunch of "Hubris" folks-thanks TSK looking out only for themselves so why should folks in Chicago or anywhere else care about the "common" person. I am completely disillusioned by the whole thing. -felt much better when I ignored the news and watched movies-Linda

I really wish everyone who thinks Chicago is a sewer and all that BS you see on TV could live here for about a year. If you are smart and want a good job, come here, if you are sick and want to get well ,come here , if you are smart and want higher education , come here, if you like good entertainment, come here, if you want good food, come here. The truth is, Chicago is the best city in the world ( 2016 Summer Olympics, anyone) BTW regarding bootleggers, mine has a six page catalog for fine viewing. I understand what Donna is saying about the people who do the manufacturing and all, she is right. I also think there wouldn't be a Flea Market open anywhere.

I have always heard rave reviews about Chicago and would love to go someday -- I'll buy you some pizza if I ever make it there PMB!

And no, Linda, you are the self deprecating one. No one calls you dumb, but you.

Definitely a world-class city. Don't know why you need to defend it.

Bill, the few times I have been to Chicago thought it a wonderful city with the cultural offerings comparable to NYC. I do not think politicians there are any more corrupt than elsewhere nor limited to any political party or any other organization. Things at the top level of anything tend to get very "dirty" by their very nature-Linda

I'm not talking about politics and I'm not looking to clean anything up. Got no beef with Chicago, either. I know some fine people from there. I'm just saying my personal preference is to buy the ticket and sit in the exact center of the theater with a bucket of overpriced unhealthy popcorn.

I am not, however, at all reluctant to smuggle in the Coke and Raisinettes.

And don't even think about talking once the movie starts if I'm in there.
