Fan: I love these guys! You know what? they're like Bill and Ted meet... Cheech and Chong!
Holden McNeil: Yeah... I kinda like to think of them as Rosencrantz and Guildenstern meet Vladamir and Estragon.
Listened to 'Waiting for Godot' last night. It was a lot more fun than trying to read it. I don't much like reading plays, so hearing it performed was nice.
Watched 'Shopgirl' too. I've been waiting for this movie ever since I first read the book when it came out. Unfortunately, limited release and bad timing made me miss it at the theatres. Thank goodness for DVDs.
Of course, I thought it wasn't as good at the book. I sort of expected that. Claire Danes, however, was both beautiful and perfect for the role. She gives a nice, quiet performance. The guys do a good job of supporting her role too.
It was a nice movie, but it didn't hit me the same way the book did.
Went out on Friday night. Got lit. Oops. Well, these things happen. How else can you end up meeting Crazy Dave the biker guy? Let me answer that one for you. There's really no other way.
On Saturday, I read 'Night' by Elie Wiesel. I blame that one on Slade who had a list of opening lines from books. 'Night' was one of the books on her list that I have never read. Wouldn't you know, I saw it staring at me from the shelf of the store the other day. So I bought it. And read it. It made me think...a lot.
Is there a more enjoyable way to enjoy a nice spring day than sitting down with a personal account of life in the Nazi extermination camps written by someone who was there? I'll answer that one for you too...yes there are plenty. It made me think though, and that made it a good thing.
