OK, so here's the question: How would you like *that* view out of your hotel window?
It's a (now abandoned) hotel on a cliff-side in Bogota, Columbia. Something to do with water pollution or some such. Look, here's another view, of the place nestled onto the cliff edge...
Yes, the place exists. And yes, there's talk of correcting the problems and reopening the place... Would be a great place to film a movie, perhaps...
So, here's the question: Do you think it would be possible to find a cool location to film a movie, and then write a script to fit it? Rather than the traditional way of writing the script, and then scouting locations to fit the script? I was talking to Ethan F. about it tonight, and he seems to think it's a good idea... although he is only 7 years old... give or take...
OK, so here's the question: What's the least intelligent way to pull out your own tooth?
That's got to be in the top 5, for sure. I wonder how many days the resulting headache lasted? Not sure what language is being spoken there... I hope there isn't any profanity in it! Or I will be gross embarrassed.
So, yes, I'm sure by now you've already heard the news. Nic Cage has signed on to play a role in the next Expendables movie... he's a perfect fit: a goofy old(ish) action star, with a number of corny action roles already under his belt. Believe it or not, the producers of the next film are also trying to get Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford and Clint Eastwood to sign on for cameos. That should just about exhaust everyone from that genre, going back to the late 70's.
Time for a Gratuitous Cat Photo:
OK, so here's the question: Are you a fan of classic hymns sung acapela by a talented (though extremely white) guy to a hushed (awed?) crowd in packed auditorium? It's sort of a specific question question, true... still... if you answered "yes", then this is for you...
If "no", then, well, your loss, I suppose... gives me chills, especially at the end. Hey, anything to cool off, eh?
Eldest Daughter's wedding ceremony was Saturday, in the back yard of my mother's house in Ramona. I tell you, it was wonderful, far surpassing my expectations. I'm extremely proud of her for pulling it off. We were outdoors at the tables, at dusk, with the white lights wrapped around the trees and strung overhead, champagne glasses at hand, while the best man and maid of honor gave their speeches... and it dawned on me what an amazing "moment" it was. I took a minute or so to soak it all in, and take a solid mental snapshot, cementing it in my mind. I'm going to remember it forever, I think. I'm trying to recall the last time that happened - if ever. I mean, being aware, in a moment, as it's happening, how special that moment is (as opposed to after the fact).
So here's the question: Do you have a moment like that? Where, as it was happening, you realized how special it was, and took time to soak up every detail? I don't know if that's ever happened to me before.
Run, bird! Run! I mean, fly!
Adios for now.
