I'm watching Glory right now while I work on invitations.

I think I've watched Glory maybe fifteen times.

I like watching (or just hearing) my favorite movies when I am doing a project, and I am in the middle of a project right now.

Amadeus, Big Lebowski, Fargo, Mighty Wind, O Brother, Best in Show, Henry Fool, Koyannisqatsi, House of Cards, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Sex and Lucia, whatever...and then sometimes I just watch episodes of flying circus.

If I buy the Twin Peaks series on DVD, I am afraid I might not ever do anything again, but watch it.

An hour ago, I named the daddy-long-legs in the bathroom Rusty. He is just hanging out in a corner up in the ceiling, and I do not have a problem with that.

I like listening to talks or audiobooks or such (when it’s not something I have to concentrate for, in which I case I listen to music.) How do you watch a movie while getting anything done meanwhile?

I don't watch, I just listen. That's why it only works with movies I am familiar with.

Anonymous, are you...saying that this entry is somehow called "Gloria," a movie?

Anonimous is eloisa! i guess what i was trying to say is that to me, the name of the movie "glory" makes me think of cassavette's gloria before the real "glory" movie. and thinking of Gloria, ah, one can but love a movie with Gena Rowlands telling a woman who has just asked her to take care of her son: "but you know i hate children, specially yours!". Then there was a remake with Sharon Stone in the role of Rowlands, but it was nowhere as good.
(Absolutely unrelated to your entry, i'll admit)

Henry Fool!

**some witty statement exclaiming how Julie has impeccable taste**

Just out of curiosity, do you know enough Spanish to listen to "Y Tu Mama Tambien" as background noise?

At 7:55 PM, Julie

I'll have to see this Gena Rowlands Gloria...

Thanks PoS! I pass the credit for liking Hal Hartley along to Scott, though - I had not seen any of those films, and Scott is a big fan and owns a lot of them. :)

I don't know enough Spanish to get much from the dialogue, but I put a little bit of stock in the idea of absorbing the cadence of the language, in the hopes that once I start studying it, it will be that much easier.
