Re:"The heart it is..."
No sense going over my experience. However I was supposed to have departed over two years ago. Yet here I are! My lifelong friend, Jim, says I just stick around to "Tic him off!"

Post 1 of "Ronzo's Great Thoughts from Literature"

William Shakespeare

Great floods have flown
From simple sources; and great seas have dried,
When miracles have by the greatest been denied.
Oft expectation fails, and most oft there
Where most it promises.
Verily, I say to thee
What ever end of the universe ronzo is,
That end is the sexiest.

Act II -- All's Well That Ends Well

That Shakespeare knew sexy when he saw it.

Isn't Bill married to that actress Ann Hathawy?

How thrilling would that be for you to patronize our little establishment! Of course, I will give you the address. Maybe we will have comic Kooking classes in the back of the shop. Ye Olde Wilkes-Barre sounds like a marvelous place for a man with nice sensibilities to be cradle and groomed. Revolutionaries, were they? That's not surprising given your penchant for 'stirring up the pot.' I spoke metaphorically. My metaphor was drawn from soup-making instructions.

Well, it sounds fortuitous to me that you were being tested when you weren't feeling too good. Two birds and one stone. That's economy, m'man!

I just hope your heart beats as strong as it is alive!

Baron,

Shakespeare's original title for that work was "All's Well ... That Ends' Swell"

My book GHOST STORY came in, got it for a penny (HARDCOVER).

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 25, 2011 5:29:37 PM PDT
Nancybell,

Ghost Story by Peter Straub? Ooooh, I got so lost (pleasurably) in that novel. It was hauntingly good. That's a penny well spent!

I can't believe people sell stuff here for one cent (plus shipping).

The 1980 movie of Ghost Story could only cover a portion of the story in the book. But it's a fun film with a good cast.

Some favorite movie lines from Alma/Eva (played by the mysterious Alice Krige):

"Dance with me, you little toad"

"Don't you want to know what you've touched?"

There's just something "spooky" about Alice Krige. She was chilling as the Borg Queen, as Mary Brady in Sleepwalkers and as Christabella in Silent Hill! The woman does know how to frighten me. 0_o

Thomas,

Critics have debated for centuries, the (what has now been termed) "The Problem of the Swelling Ends".

No matter what side you are on (my spine seems to suggest I slouch to the right), you have to (IMO) admire Shakespeare's ability to manipulate Elizabethan grammar.

Gorgar,

Silent Hill .... that has to be in
"The Top Ten Creepiest-Looking Towns in Horror Cinema History".

Such impeccable production design and set dressing. A genuine nightmare world. I ♥ it!

This hurricane (Irene) looks sinister. Here in Northeast Penn we're just supposed to get rain and wind on Sunday, but I am worried about my friends on Long Island.

It's sobering when you watch the weather channel or the news coverage, all the evacuations going on, all the precautions. I hope the havoc is not nearly what we expect.

NGM,
re:"GHOST STORY"
I believe I've said this before but GHOST STORY by Peter Straub remains my all time favorite, well, ghost story. I also really liked the movie they made from it.

Re:"GHOST STORY MOVIE"
Wow, you sure picked out the most chilling lines. I have that movie on Laserdisc and have watch it about 30 times. It deserves a miniseries but they did a good job in the time they had. A snow lovers movie!

no question, but she was charming as MARTHA WASHINGTON in the INDISPENSABLE MAN.

My good Mr. TPM,

I never had Laserdisc, but a friend did when we still lived on Long Island, and while briefly perusing his collection of discs, I really liked the size of the discs-- almost like a record album, which made the cover graphic so much nicer and better than any VHS or DVD could be, at least I thought so. I just remember thinking, 'What a nice sleeve size' (and that phrase could qualify as a tongue twister).

inframis,
B Sard
