Quantum of Solace - what the hell is that?

Never was a freak for the 007 series. The only one I ever saw more than once was A View to a Kill, and that was because I loved the title song by Duran Duran and wound up not changing the channel. Now I love that film for the dated corniness, the wonder that is Grace Jones and Roger Moore's fopish creakiness.

Just ONCE I would like to turn on HBO or Starz and the Casino Royale that comes on will be the one with David Niven and Peter Sellers, I was obsessed with that film as a kid (apparently so was Mike Myers). Call me when they remake that puppy...

From a now-defunct incel board:

"I just can't picture being in a relationship or having sex at all. It's been so long it's like my imagination is tired of trying. I guess I always have a glimmer of hope; otherwise I wouldn't be on this board ranting about it all the time. But there is definitely a feeling of destiny to it all. As I get older, I'm beginning to come to the conclusion that its just never going to happen"

Yay, a Black President - now what?

Congrats to all involved!! Election night was a beautiful moment, but time will tell whether change really will happen or if we just sold another bill of goods. I like the guy, I'll give him a chance, what choice do we have? After all, Dubya was the guy everybody wanted to have a beer with (as he slashed our throats and sent kids to die), I really don't think Barak (or "Barry" if it makes you feel better) can do any worse. I hope he doesn't try.

P.S. - I adore Michelle but hated that dress too.
