A quick one.

Anek kaaj, phaNki mere du line'er blog likhchhi. One has suddenly found one's groove. One has met up with oooold friends in the Bay area and eaten like a pig last weekend. One is meeting more friends for a dinner tomorrow and is probably driving to some place that has National Park tagged to its name, this weekend. One is happy and busy. Hence - no posts!
By the way I have three brand new DVDs waiting to be seen - Porco Rosso, Nausicaa and The Cat Returns - look them up on Amazon or better still the Miyazaki website. I am also watching the third season of Seinfeld on DVD.
I did watch "The Day After Tomorrow" last night. It did not fail to amuse with its obviousness nor fail to manipulate emotions with the spectacle of lots and lots of people dying horrible deaths. That the entire county of Los Angeles appears to be blown off the map very early on in the movie, with the Hollywood sign going first, was cool, though it did make the rest of the movie appear a little futile to me personally, heh.
And there ends the longest 'du line' ever.

Welcome back! Seems like you had a great trip. I had a great weekend as well, we partied for the Persian New Year.

Eshei LA County nipaat jawaatey eto pulak keno baba :(

If you see People vs. Larry Flynt, at one point, Larry says to his business partner, "I want to move to a place where perverts are welcome". Immediately, there is an aerial shot of the Hollywood sign! That's the best part about this place, everyone's welcome, lowlife and highbrow, come ye all!

Thalassa, nipat jaoatey khushi noi motei.. I was just trying to say, very badly obviously, that with LA disposed of in the first ten minutes, why should I even care about the movie. I would be kind of dead, right?
Sagnik, all I have to say is aaaarghh... :-)

American movie goers have a morbid curiosity to see their country getting devastated in the "movie-world".....previously the agents of destruction would be Commies---soon it migrated to Aliens (Independene Day) and Godzilla....and now natural disasters that occur most unscientifically.

Still I kinda liked the movie---

"People vs Larry Flint"---now that's a movie worth discussing.
