Ahem. Testing. Hello?
Ah, yes, there you are. My apologies for being away for so long. No, no...I'm not mad at you. Things have been busy.
What? Oh. You've heard that one before. I see.
Well, to be honest...I've just neglected our relationship. You know how it can be. You don't?
I...let me finish, please. I need to explain, you see....what? What have I been up to?
Animal Crossing has still been a recurring object of entertainment in my home life...again, it's so incredibly relaxing, and after a long day at work and an even longer commute home, it's nice to just zone out.
Have I watched anything? A few things here and there, but nothing life-changing...
...except for one thing. Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.
Years ago, I had a watched a few episodes from an earlier DVD release of the first 25 shows, but I gave up because I figured it was hopeless to get involved in a show that I would never, ever see the entire run of. Why bother investing your time in a few installments of a show that clocked a whopping 325 episodes! Flash forward: For my birthday, Hilly Blue got me the entire collection that was released by Shout Factory! and I haven't been the same since. Louise Lasser is absolutely, jaw-droppingly amazing. I had always been a fan of hers, but this blew my expectations out of the water. I'm speechless in my attempt at describing her performance in this role - equally strange, sympathetic, hilarious...her delivery is unique and completely and utterly exclusive to Louise Lasser. No one else in the world could play this role. What episode am I on? 147!
Music? Not much, really. But these two epics have been on constant repeat - Eartha Kitt, I Love Men and Pat Ast, Paul Jabara's Ocho Rios.
Let's see. Am I missing anything? Oh yes. Back in October, I finally saw the complete version of I Am Divine. It was great to finally see the finished piece after two years of research. I can't stress how much of a wonderful experience it was.
Toodles for now!
