animals strike curious poses

ong time, no type LiveJournalers! I haven't had much to report and have been working my butt off the past two weeks. When do I ever go more than a week without posting? And no one NUDGED ME! I.. I'm just beside myself with heartache and contempt.

I had to break the silence though because I'm excited about a new feature the good folks at LJ are implementing, one I've been wanting for a while. It's currently being tested by Permanent Member accounts, but will be a basic feature to everyone in a few weeks. You will be able to track the comments to an entry, or even a particular thread, in your friends journals and communities, by way of e-mail notification. That way you are alerted when anyone jumps into the conversation anywhere in the post/thread, and not just when they reply to you. It's about time.

Another LJ curiosity I'd like to report is a milestone for my journal. I had planned to make a big deal over the first person who commented on this entry, as it would've been my 10,000th comment, but then I got an anonymous comment to an old photo entry from back in the spring and that kinda ruined it. But whoever comments first I guess will be the 10,001st. so... yay!

he butt working-off has come in the form of lots and lots of miles, to the tune of over 9,000 in the past 10 days. I should get home tonight or tomorrow morning and return to my dear Welf. Her pal and our mutual livejournal.friend erebrandir is going to be coming in from Alabama to spend a few days with us. The three of us have plans to meet-up with yourtourniquet in Newport on Saturday night to see Emo Phillips perform. I got to see him a few years ago in Lexington and look forward to seeing him again. While you certainly can appreciate his humor on a TV screen, there's no substitute for his stage presence. For one, the dude is HUGE. At least, he's a lot bigger than you expect. And then there's the heavy mouth breathing and the spastic body language coupled with the sing-song delivery. For my money, Emo is probably one of the top ten stand-up comedians EVER.period. It should be awesome, and I'll finally have an opportunity to buy yourtourniquet that shot of whiskey I promised her so long ago.

finally saw Casablanca for the first time. I had seen scenes from it countless times or seen/heard it referenced and parodied even more than that. Despite this, after watching it entirely and investing in the story and the characters, I still teared up just a little bit during the final scene at the airport with Bogart and Bergman. I guess this makes me a pussy or something. Peter Lorre was deliciously weird as usual, but I wish he had had some more screen time. I also have been continuing with my Hitchcock immersion, and by chance, I recently watched Notorious, also with Ingrid Bergman just before Casablanca. I've become rather smitten with her. Anyone know of any other good Ingrid Bergman films I should check out?

es, yes, I know, you skimmed all that useless stuff above and came straight to the gams. These dandies belong to insignificantxx.

I finally saw Casablanca myself a few years ago on late night television.

You only just saw Casablanca? Damn.

Not like I'm any better. I haven't seen it since I was 10 and the only scenes I remember are when Bogart tells the piano player to not play that song and the airstrip scenes.

out of all the journals in the world you had to come in and comment on this one

I'm a little slow on these things. I've only recently developed a passion for cinema, and I'm slowly making amends for all the great films I've never seen.

Oh! Isn't it a sweet movie? One of my favorites, even though I didn't see it myself until about three years ago.

That and Dr. Zhivago, which also comes highly recommended.

Dr. Zhivago is another film I need to get onto my Netflix queue someday. I'm in no hurry though, at the moment there's like, 230 films on there. Heh.

It is a sweet movie, but at the same time it's not simple or trite. It is a little weird watching a film you've never seen but you know so much about from its constant references in pop culture (here's lookin' at you kid, we'll always have paris, play it again sam, every gin-joint in the world you had to walk in here, etc) although it was sort of the same thing when I watched Citizen Kane already knowing what Rosebud was.

Sometimes people come up to me and say "Emo, do people really come up to you?"

Hehehehe. Probably ... the toughest time ... in anyone's life ... is when you have to murder a loved one because they're the devil.

I'm in your state!

Not the tearing up, but using the expression "deliciously weird" make you a pussy or something. ;) I tease, I tease.

You're probably right. But Peter Lorre... man, he IS deliciously weird.

DAMN. those are some fine gams.
as sad as it is, I missed your gams posting.
I have to say your starting to turn me into a leg freak extremely if they are as beautiful as the ones above!

Well, then! You'd probably appreciate my half-assed website devoted to Scarlett Johansson Knee Porn.

I think it's safe to say that this little legs fest will become an annual summer tradition in my journal from now on.

I didn't go right to the gams, though lovely picture. -smiling-

I did goggle that someone actually likes that damn nudge feature though. I hate, hate, HATE that thing! -smiling-

Actually, I was being a bit facetious about the nudge feature. I was joking with Welf the other day that I wasn't going to write another entry until someone nudged.me.damn it.

Psst, I spoke with yourtourniquet and she wants you to call her.

See ya tomorrow night.

I don't suppose you're opening? That'd be too awesome for words. ;-) I didn't know you were coming. I look forward to meeting you.

I think I still have her number somewhere in a comment she left. I'll dig it out and call her this evening.

Does your friend have a ticket? If not, let me know ASAP and I'll get it set up. It would be best if I got it taken care of tonight before their box office closes.

I called them a few days ago to add another ticket for a friend of ours and dude said, "wow, you've got some awesome seats!" Score!

Don't worry about it. Welf just informed that he's not getting here until Sunday.

Were you all interested in meeting up before-hand somewhere, or just at the club. I'm definitely getting in on Saturday morning and Welf gets off work at around 6pm, so we could be in Newport by 8ish. Let us know, other than seeing Emo, we really haven't made any other plans. Otherwise, we'll probably get some dinner or something.

I had like four cups of coffee today and I'm horny as hell so your dear Welf is probably going to be wide awake by the time you get here.

Yeah, and I was gone for a month in April and you never nudged or thought about me once! Nuts to you, Soopageek!

That's because I had your legs pictures blown-up to 11x17 and hanging in my truck. It's like, you're with me ALL THE TIME.

Firstly, I'm stunned that you hadn't seen all of Casablanca before, Was the version you saw the original black and white or a washed out colourised version? B&W is always best.

And what a fantastic surprise to see my Shirley's legs featured. I may be biased but they have to be the best legs you have ever featured, better even than your own. Okay, so I am biased. :D

Yeah, it was the original black and white version.

Did you not know she had sent me a picture? I was assuming you must've told her about my little celebration of legs over here.

(Deleted comment)
I worked entirely too much over those 9,000 miles. I didn't take too many pictures, but I tookd few. :)
