Enjoying a tall, stiff Pacifique while watching Godzilla: Final Wars.
Monday evening isn't looking so bad. ;)

:arrr:



Since my return from Thailand a couple weeks ago it has been a constant blur of Ultraman and Godzilla. Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, Godzilla vs the Thing(mothra), King Kong vs Godzilla, Ghidorah the 3 headed Monster, Monster Zero, Godzilla 2000, etc. etc. Every day, usually with the sound off for "atmosphere". Also I have been running Ultraman on constant repeat, sometimes with the sound on so you can compare the overdubbing with the subtitles--they frequently are at laughable variance. It has been pretty constant and shows no sign of abating any time soon. They have been accompanied by Pacifique, Ridge, and Perroquet on various occasions, as well as the obligatory cumulative truckload of Guinness.

I guess I'll try to watch some "real" movies eventually; I tried to finish Religulous last night but fell asleep (again). Until then, it's all about those tiny gals singing the Mothra song. It's especially soothing when overdubbed in Thai.

King Kong vs Godzilla

My favorite. :heart:

I recently acquired a 6-7 disc set that included the original Japanese version of the original. Love it!
Mom snagged it when she was over couple of weekends ago, but I know it contained a disc or two I was missing for the collection.

Here's to Big G and good green.

Alone in the Wilderness on PBS with Duplais Verte

The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.

I have been visting the Isle of Ptyx, dear sir. A quite magnificent place where I found myself secluded from the outside world for several months or so. You see, the isle of Ptyx is fashioned from a single block of the stone of this name, a priceless stone found only in this island, which is entirely composed of it. It has the serene translucency of white sapphire and is the only precious stone not ice-cold to the touch, for its fire enters and spreads itself like wine after drinking.

On the first day,the king of the isle came toward us in a ship: a funnel puffed out blue halos behind his head, magnifying the smoke from his pipe and imprinting it on the sky.

Dispersing the hairy curiosity of the fauns and the rosy bloom of the nymphs aroused from their reverie by this mellifluous creation, the pale motor vessel withdrew its blue breath toward the island's horizon, with its jerking chair waving goodbye.

Eventually, the huge king's head carbonized itself in the moon's furnace. As he left, he was grasping a tiger by the scruff of its neck. But, just before leaving, the king deposited in my hands a viaticum of twenty-four Squitty sea-ears skewered on a unicorn's horn. To the people of the isle, it is considered quite the honor to receive such charities from a king.

With that said, it feels good to be back. :cheers:

For interested movie fans:

I recently set up a Tumblr blog, Memento Movi(e), devoted to remembering moving moments from the movies:

http://mementomovie.tumblr.com/

Have a few posts up now. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the first, which explains the idea behind the whole thing.

Amble over with absinthe in hand to check it out. If you like what you see, bookmark it and return for future installments. And feel free to comment if the spirit moves you!

Enjoying a Ridge V and a TV showing of Raiders of the Lost Ark. I'm sure I've seen this movie 75 times and I still love it. And now I'm going back for a second helping of Ridge V. Which I also love.

Love the new Sherlock series on PBS Masterpiece. Excellent show (imo). With VP, Pacifique and a nice local wine. (Not necessarily in that order.)

Lucid and a crapballz dubbed version of Caltiki, the immortal monster. It might be entertaining without the dubbing. The gore factor for the time never ceases to amaze me.

Dubbing: :poop:

Blues Cat and Tailor, Tinker, Soldier, Spy. A really wonderful picture - maybe the best spy movie I've ever seen. And Gary Oldman does a terrific, but very subtle impression of Alec Guinness. It's all in the glasses, the mouth, and above all else, the voice.
