And so the chat continues!

As with previous editions of Chatline, this topic is open to *all* discussion,
whether related to Classic Era movies or not. Feel free to be yourself here. :?)
To repeat a portion of the original opening post:

Our space is a cozy den with comfy overstuffed chairs all around (the kind Grandma used to have). There's an endless supply of healthful snacks and beverages, and the big screen on the far wall quietly plays one of 110 different channels-- each of them shows a different classic era movie!

Glad you're with us. Have fun everybody!

(Thanks to Nancy C. for suggesting the subtitle for this continuation.)

Annie,

I just want you to know this has been my 'entertainment' tonight. I didn't even know 'chats' existed on Amazon. I mean, other than a few product reviews.

A break from the boring (200) cable channels that offer what probably about 10 [good] channels might offer. Otherwise back to my Maeve Binchy novel. Which has been a let down, so far.

Favorite (oldies) books: Clan of the Cavebear, The Source - avid Michner fan and the ... talk about loss of memory. The series: (Something, something in Amber) The time travelers who go through the stones? Someone help me out.
Authors name is Barb_ _ .?? How is it you can 'see' characters in a book clearly in your minds eye, movies too for that matter and can't remember one of their names.

Oh, wait. It just came to me. The hero Scotsman is Jaime.

Anna--
Hope you'll bookmark us and visit when you can. I'm here overnights cuz I'm at work.
(Getting paid to chat online... it's the American way!)

As for books, I read non-fiction: history, baseball, auto and biographies, trivia, and such.

I need to find a job where I can play on the computer all night!
at most jobs that's a no-no!

sadly I have to do physical work, thats what I get for not finishing college.

Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander, Book 2). My mind works the same way Anna. I liked "Outlander" but couldnt get into the second book, but refuse to give up as I plan to read the series.

My boss encourages me to be here as it ensures I'm awake.
That's how I wrote over 4,000 product reviews: late at night, on the clock.

My dangerous time is 5 AM when I settle down to watch a movie. It can be like popping a sleeping pill.

Nancy,

Gabaldon. Duh! Yes, they did begin to get somewhat repeticious.

Where did I get the author that begins with B? You must know, you can read minds... LOL

Green Darkness, anyone? I like period novels as muh as period & foreign movies.

I come from Connecticut, a part where some folks tawk like this:

Oh no! I spilled cawfee on my computah!

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 18, 2012 11:16:09 PM PDT
I cant drink coffee either. I was given some as a child as a treat with pan dulce, but as an adult, I cant drink it and it smells so wonderful. I just found out Riche Valens sister lives in San Juan Bautista, shes like 5 minutes away. What a small world. Bill Haley was around Harlingen Texas when I was there and passed away there too!

Anna--
Nothing beats a good translation of THE THREE MUSKETEERS.

My last novel read was WR Burnett's second published book, after LITTLE CAESAR (1929). It's called IRON MAN (1930), and is the story of a struggling middkeweight boxer, his loyal manager and floozy wife.

Nancy,

I'm obviously from the dark ages... I didn't know ol' Timmy boy wrote? Thought he was just a mad scientist. His claim to fame was LSD, and being heralded in song.

HA! HA! I still say you all.

Annie,

Cute! You should be very proud of yourself. You made me chuckle after a grueling day.

My mom once came home with a 5 gallon tub of cawffee ice cream.
She claimed it "fell off the truck," but I always wondered how the hell she got such a thng.

You can get an idea of cawffee's taste from that, or from one of those cawffee hard candies.

I think Nancy is commenting on a link I posted to "Legend of a Mind," the Timothy Leary song by the Moody Blues.

Check it out. True stereo!

My last period novel I really enjoyed was called "The Dress Lodger." Kinda Dickenson and not a very happy book, but I like my subjects heavy.

Anna--
I'm glad you're having a good time. :?D

Wish McGhee was here. He's a real fun guy!
