C'EST LUNDI.

Still can't get Radiohead tickets for their show in late August at the Hollywood Bowl! ARGH!

How was your weekend? I had a very very nice one thank you. I watched this movie with Fanny Ardant, who is probably my favorite French actress of all time! The movie's called Nathalie, about a woman who tests her husband's fidelity by hiring a stripper. The woman playing the stripper is a very sensual-looking actress named Emmanuelle Béart. I totally dug her look in the film! She's quite magnetic on screen; a very beautiful woman in my opinion. The film moved slow, but had my attention somehow. No, I still haven't yet seen The Dark Knight, but I will sometime this week, to finally see just what everyone else is raving about. This movie is making loads and loads of cash, enough to feed several Third World countries!

I think Obama is very charismatic, but I just don't worship or adore the man as others do so blindly it seems. Americans and the world entire love the man as if he were Jesus or something! His tour of Europe just recently was an enormous success; received/admired as they would a pop/rock star or something. It's Obamamania man! Hmmm. Something to perhaps consider although it may be far-fetched and ridiculous, but what if Obama is the Antichrist? We're not that far from 2012 are we? He has so many in his firm popular grip! The man can say or do no wrong! He speaks well, but does he really have the necessary plan/actions to help us out of the economic mess we find ourselves in? I dunno man. Something weird is a'brewin' here and I can't quite put my finger on it. We'll just have to wait and see...

Karaoke Monday tonight at my local bar. It should be very fun.

So happy to hear you had a good weekend. Mine was good also.

As far as the election? I really do not have a horse in this race. As far as fix the damage done, economic mess? I feel it is more and much larger than any one person or party can fix. Still hoping someone can. Time will tell, huh?

Hope you are able to get tickets to Radiohead.

I love Fanny Ardant in almost any movie. I've yet to see that one. I loved her channeling Rita Hayworth in "8 Femmes".

The antichrist? Oh dear. You must have seen the movie that I did growing up which scared the hell outta me. Check it out:

But I thought Ronald Reagan was the antichrist. Wasn't A/Christ white anyway?

French films usually are slower paced, which I love. I agree with you on Obama. Yeah, it's a nice package, but there doesn't seem to be much beneath the wrapping paper.

I think I saw E Beart in a French film called Clubbed to Death... that was a good film though despite "supposedly" speaking French (except I can't, even though I did 6, 7 or 8 years of it (I hesitate to remember exactly how long I did French for)) I still could not follow the film and I read the subtitles as closely as I could

like I say it's a v g film but like a lot of French films, innerly inherently incomprehensible!!!

Nikita the one that Brigette Fonda film The Assassin was based on was also like that. But an excellent viewfest. I was meant to give a presentation on it afterwards and barely had anything to say!!
