In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Artist Quote of the Day

Michael:

I thought you'd appreciate this from Daisy von Sherler Mayer, the director of "The Guru":

I like things that are fake. Theatrical acting, dancing. The dance numbers made me want to do the movie. I think it's because I grew up backstage with a lot of actors and a lot of showbusiness people and they were larger than life. Nobody was naturalistic in my world.

So, do you hear anything about this movie?

Cheers,

Friedrich

Haven't heard a thing. But that quote, plus the ads featuring Heather Graham's tummy, certainly have me looking forward to something, though I won't say what...

I heard that it was crap. I remember seeing ads and promos for it last year and it looked godawful.
