"The Conversation" is a great movie. Let's hope nobody tries for a remake -- in these days of Internet-speak, it would probably be retitled "The Convo".

I grew up in a blue-collar household, in a blue-collar neighborhood, on the blue-collar side of town. So I can proudly say that a disproportionate number of blue-collar people smoke too much, drink too much, eat too much, talk too much, complain about their jobs too much, envy too much, gossip too much, watch TV too much, and sit around bullshitting too much. I've never understood why some Americans -- not all, but some -- place blue-collar workers on a pedestal...
Broccoli. Never liked it, never will.

I've recently been limiting my daily Internet time so I can maximize my reading time. I know that it's possible to do "serious reading" on the Internet, but most of my webtime is spent goofing around -- lurking forums and messageboards, looking at photos of naked chicks, and reading bar & restaurant reviews -- time which could be better spent reading something worthwhile.

Keep playing until everyone's dead or until your Mom calls you in for dinner, whichever comes first.
In the suburban neighborhood where I grew up, one of the older men kept his entire early-1960s bachelor pad in his garage well into the 1980s. He had stored all of the furniture in the garage after getting married, but gradually reconstructed his old pad one step at a time, like a museum exhibit. He even installed carpeting and an air conditioner in the garage. When I was younger I thought it was kind of freaky, but I now think it was an extremely cool thing to do.
