Lori's List of movies she's seen at least twice and would watch again:

1. Harold and Maud

2. Buckaroo Bonzai

3. Time Bandits

4. The Lion King

the list goes on for a bit, but those are the few that can be easily found.

I mean Suspiria, and Frankenweenie are on the list as well, b ut good luck finding either of them on DVD.

I actually have Susperia on DVD. It's been around a couple of times, though I see it's out of print again. Might turn up used for a decent price - keep your eyes peeled!

And Frankenweenie - along with Vincent - can be found on the 2 disc collector's edition of The Nightmare Before Christmas. Still in print and very available.

No, that's pretty much it. I was inspired by an episode of The World at War, and wondered what it would be like to be in that crowd, knowing what they knew. Then, I just had to write about it.

Do you know of Chris Bohjalian? Have you read his latest, "Skeletons at the Feast"? If not, let me know and send me your address and I'll lend you my copy. It is soooo worth reading.


I haven't heard of him until now. I've got a few books in the reading queue, but I'll make a note of the author and your offer. He sounds interesting.
