Chapter 38

Colette was wondering where they were headed. It was beginning to look so familiar.
“Edmond, what’s happened? Where are we going?�

“Do not fret, Colette, we will arrive very shortly.�

Colette squinted and saw three people. They were waiting for someone or something. She noticed that they were all on horseback.

“Who are those people?� Colette said, pointing into the distance. I can’t quite make them out?�

“Soon, milady, soon,� Edmond said, trying not to smile. “Patience, we are almost upon them.�

And so they were. Colette didn’t realize just how close they actually were.

“Hello, Colette,� Antoine said, smiling, jumping off the horse to meet her. “Have a nice trip?�

“We have been looking for you everywhere, Colette,� Auguste said. He looked down at her dress. “I see you’ve been busy.�

“Here she is, Your Majesty,� Edmond said to Francis. “Safe and sound as you requested.�

“Thank you, Captain.� Francis said, “I’ll see what I can do for you.�

“Thank you, Your Majesty, and now I must take your leave, as I will be teaching some of the younger boys the art of weaponry. “

Francis smiled. “Very good, Edmond. Thank you.�

As soon as Edmond rode of, Antoine turned to her. “Well, looks like you’ve been busy. May I ask what you have been doing with yourself? Found anything?�

Colette was fuming. She had been up and down this road countless times. Why had she not noticed.

MTV’s Movie House?

Anyone watch this? Thoughts and opinions?

I just discovered this show, and it’s ok, but it has some of the standard MTV elements that makes me not like it and is an example of why I don’t watch MTV. It just seems so “artificially hip”, like it’s Madison avenue’s idea of what “hip” is. Everything from the “slang” to the clothes to how they do their film screenings seem fakey and artificial to me.

Although I love that concept of filming people at screenings, I’m going to have to start doing that when we sponsor screenings. But anyway, it looks stupid when they have everyone running into the theaters clapping loudly and cheering before they even enter, and then when they show the crowd in the theater “wincing”, “covering their eyes”, etc, and cheering at everything. It all just seems so fake and staged.

Now granted I only have DC Screening crowds to judge by.

Digital v. Celluloid: Pros and Cons

I appreciate all your responses to “Nudity in Movies”. Now I have a new topic for you. What’s your opinion on Digital vs. Celluloid? Here are a few things to concider
-Visual Quality
-Audio Quality
-Distribution (Since there is no physical print, you can just download it to the theaters)
-Cost of retrofitting the projection systems( The Theaters don’t want to pay for it because they really won’t be making any more money per film. The Studios don’t want to pay for it because that will benifit other studios.)
-Since the it helps to reduce the cost of making a film, should ticket prices go down (this is just wishfull thinking on my part)

just a fun LOTR quiz

I saw this and thought it was fun. No harm meant.

You’re
Doomed to be Bilbo!

You haven’t changed much in 111 years dear old Hobbit! We’re pleased
to say that there doesn’t seem to be much difference between the book
you and the film you. Now if only they would let you have your starring
role again, all would be right with the world.

Which
other character of FOTR are you doomed to be?

Concerts

I was very lucky that I saw 3 concerts in a 5 day stretech in early June, Blink 182/Green Day, Alanis Morrisette and Goo Goo Dolls. Green Day seemed more into their act than Blink was and Blink is one of my favorite groups. Alanis’s show was much better than the one she had at Nissan Pavilion many years ago (the 1st year it was open) although it was no where near sold out. Goo Goo Dolls packed the Warner theatre and it was worth seeing. They are coming to Merriweather in late August. Five for Fighting put on a good opening act for Goo Goo Dolls as well. Anyone go to any of these shows and if so, thoughts?

Sci-fi, horror, mystery fans

If you like stories about werewolves and vamps this show is for you . It used to be on CBS but now it’s on UPN where it’s making a real good impression. You’ve heard me mention it before Wolf Lake, it’s about a pack of werewolves who live in a small town in the US and it’s about the younger more corupt members trying to take the lead of the wolf pack to be the higher race of the world. You know that old ploy, anyways it has romance, love ,action, mystery and it’s kinda gruesome sometimes but cool. For the horror, sci-fi fan I recommend this show to you.Here they air it on Wednesday nights on UPN at 9 pm.
