Coyote Musings
Coyote handsome
his coat the same brown
as the dust from which he rises


What is the sound of one hand slapping Schroedinger's cat?


The Quantum Duck goes "quark, quark."

Missing Left Sock Beast [userpic]

So, I finally saw Die Hard 2 and The Professional this weekend. Up next is The Number 23, which I'm suspecting is going to be something of a letdown after those two. Maybe I'll re-rent and re-watch Session 9 later.

Working on a Blue and Bronze Prisoner of Azkaban Ravenclaw scarf for myself. If I'd been thinking, I would have done a blue and silver one (movie) instead, since Blue and Silver are also UNR colors. But, I bought the yarn a while ago, and I'm still on a yarn diet.

Those four of you who I'm paying it forward for can consider the comments to this thread to be a place to give me suggestions, tell me your likes and dislikes, and so forth. Hell, if other people want to tell me that stuff, too, I'll file it away for when it might become useful.

I have mostly finished my first EZ Baby Surprise Jacket. I still need to sew on the buttons and do the contrasting color edging once I decide what color I want to use. That said, EZ herself would be horrified, because I knit it out of some Caron Simply Soft I had laying around - but a) I don't know anyone who's going to have a baby, and b) it really was just a practice to see if I understood the concept well enough to start working on a EZ Adult Surprise Jacket to (possibly) replace the Disreputable Old Sweater. So, you know.

Edited to add: Oh, and one other random observation: Bruce Willis (during his Die Hard days) and Paul Reiser (as in, say, "Aliens") look and sound a lot alike. Just sayin'.

Oddly, I was willing to accept the beginning being slow; I lost interest for a while around the hour mark but then got swept up again.

I agree that it's a much better movie than its press suggested, though I don't know that I'd categorize it as Horror as such. Psychological Thriller. :)

Sorry - I wasn't clear. :) I hadn't seen it before - just watched it for the first time today (it was one of my three Friday/Saturday rentals in addition to the other two I mentioned).

To me, good horror is either Alien/Aliens or Dead Teenager Movies (I'm not quite sure how to classify such films as Resident Evil and/or Dog Soldiers, both of which I love but really aren't horrifying - camp horror, maybe), but I do love my PTs particularly when they catch me completely off guard, which isn't easy to do!

The Professional is one of my top five movies of ever. How did you like it?

I liked it. I'm still digesting it; I may or may not have more to say about it later.

I did find myself thinking at the end that there was no way in a sane universe that Gary Oldman got the drop on Jean Reno. Glad I wasn't disappointed. ;)
