As soon as we finish recording the vocals and the guys producing the track give me the go-ahead I'll post a shameless promo.

Yes, it's a WOF staple. "Eggs Benedict Arnold" or "Darryl Strawberry Fields Forever" or puzzles like that.

Roland, it's not a new technique. I'm not the familiar with the Gaga track, but I used the "before and after" technique recently in a lyric of a new song I'm working on and I didn't think it was anything special. Effective, but not special.

Since when?

"Brown Eyes" is better (and even Bowie-esquer).

She's an okay singer/songwriter/producer (I prefer the ballads to the uptempo stuff) with a great sense of style and presentation, but I think I would have to see her live and up close to get really excited. Not completely sold on the Lady.

Forgot to ask a pertinent question: How many FB friends does he already have? If less than 100, I stand by my advice above. If more than 400, go ahead. He's a FB whore like so many of us.

Now I'm thinking about Charles Foster Kane (Citizen Kane)/Michael O'Hara (The Lady from Shanghai)/Harry Lime (The Third Man)/Hank Quinlan (Touch of Evil)...

Another great list, BHay. But seriously? Not a single female character? ;-)

Don't do it, David. At least be surreptitious about it and collect a few mutual friends before you do. And then, as mrp says, filter has access to you and yours. ;-)

Wow, David, incredible list. It really is an impossible task, when you think about all the characters in film history. I could come up with a completely different list if I started again now. It pained me to leave off Matthew Poncelet (Dead Man Walking), Susan Vance (Bringing Up Baby), Beetlejuice (Beetle Juice) and Bugs Bunny.

I actually started to get nervous reading the first paragraphs of this post. So glad it went the other way. The whole time, though, I had this exchange in my head: - Why can't you give me the respect that I'm entitled to? Why can't you treat me like I would be treated by any stranger on the street? - Because I am NOT one of your fans.

And amazingly, Nathaniel, I wasn't alone in singling out this shot today!

David, I must strongly disagree with you: I'm Not There was my favorite film of 2007 and is one of the only "biopics" that has not been a disappointment. Others include Milk, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Bonnie and Clyde, The Story of Adèle H., Hilary and Jackie, Shine and Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows.

I'm not going to say if you have guessed correctly or not until we get a few more people playing the game. [Cue crickets chirping.] It's alarmingly quiet in here.

A lot of people I know name Groundhog Day as one of their favorite all-time movies. I can see why, but if a movie with Andie MacDowell succeeds it is in spite of her presence. That said, it's impossible to have a list of Ten Best American Movies without All About Eve. I may love six of the movies on Fish's list, but without Eve and at least one Orson Welles film I just can't take it seriously.

Of the nine shows that closed on Sunday, five (Grease, Hairspray, Young Frankenstein, Boeing-Boeing and White Christmas) were revivals or adaptations; two (Slava'a Snowshow, Liza's at the Palace) were "special events"; and just two (13 and Dividing the Estate) were new works. Ironically, the only new play in the whole bunch was written by a nonagenarian. Also closing this month: All My Sons (1947), Gypsy (1959), Spamalot (based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail, 1975) and Spring Awakening (based on the 1891 play). I did love Patti and Spring Awakening.

Intriguing and strangely old-fashioned, this photo... By the way, how does one go about posting a snapshot?
