That publicity photo for The Opposite of Sex by ambrosen (4.00 / 2) #1 Fri Jun 02, 2006 at 05:04:03 AM EST
Had me drooling every time I saw it at the time it was out. I'd find myself picking up the cinema brochure every time I walked past just to have a look.

Ricci is genuinely anorexic, and admits it. Poor women. Especially as she's really rather pretty, and always seems rather nice.

Re: cars. It's a nice sunny day, so I think I'll put the back of mine up on the axle stands and see what I can do about hacking the rear wheels to stand level.

Also, what with you knowing stuff, you know those rubber bushings that hold the silencer/muffler box in place: if your silencer box has fallen beneath then, is there any trick to wedging them back in place? Or is it not a standard enough thing for what I'm saying to make sense?

Not quite standard. by blixco (4.00 / 2) #2 Fri Jun 02, 2006 at 05:10:14 AM EST
It would totally depend on the mounting.  If it's a question of lubrication (for lack of a better term), use rubbing alcohol.  That will allow the bushing to slip over what it needs to slip over, and will evaporate, allowing the bushing to seal and seat.

But that may not be what you're asking.

In re: Christina Ricci,  I wonder if she's getting treatment or counseling?  Not that I care that much, but it's sad to have a talented cute chick starve to death in front of the cameras.

WIPO by sasquatchan (4.00 / 1) #3 Fri Jun 02, 2006 at 05:12:41 AM EST
yes.

Though the Mrs qualifies for 'build a nuclear reactor while knitting a sweater' (and cooking a fancy ethnic dinner, and fixing the rotten wood on the porch). Wonderful woman.

Ms Stiles was quite cute in the Bourne movies, but 85% of that was her wardrobe. Not sure I agree on the anorexia, but meh.

"10 Things I Hate About You" and watch nothing but her table dance thing.

I love that song now.  I want that table.  I'm feeling frisky just thinking about it. I I I I....

Sorry.  Was that your leg?  Sorry.

otherwise though, by garlic (4.00 / 1) #7 Fri Jun 02, 2006 at 05:43:36 AM EST
what a dumb, dumb movie.

Oh yeah. by blixco (2.00 / 0) #8 Fri Jun 02, 2006 at 05:46:53 AM EST
Though I think it was one of the first "Shakespeare as 90's teenage movie" movies.  And it was the intro to Heath Ledger for many.

Awful, though.  Heavy handed and awful.  But who cares?  It had that one scene!

one of the first? by tps12 (4.00 / 1) #10 Fri Jun 02, 2006 at 06:33:28 AM EST
Have there been others? (I think I remember a Hamlet, but I don't remember what it was called.) I think 10 Things is a fine, charming movie in its own right. Considering its target audience, it's incredible. Also, Tacoma represent.

There were a few. by blixco (2.00 / 0) #11 Fri Jun 02, 2006 at 06:41:56 AM EST
More than a few, but I can't recall all of them now.  O, Hamlet, and a couple of Taming of the Shrews.

The movie had its moments, and given the target audience I guess OK yeah.  I mean, I'm a fan of Bring It On for godsake.

Don't tell anyone, though.

But yeah.  Julia Stiles!

I agree with clock entirely --Kellnerin

I need to get to Houston soon. by blixco (4.00 / 1) #6 Fri Jun 02, 2006 at 05:41:00 AM EST
The RoT motorcycle rally is this weekend, which means all of our roads are going to be choked with lawyers on Harleys.  However: soon.  Indeed, damnit.

Sandra Oh by darkcity (4.00 / 1) #13 Fri Jun 02, 2006 at 07:08:58 AM EST

She and I used to take piano lessons from the same teacher back in the 80s.  She was always much better than I was, but that was probably because 1. She was older than I was and 2. She probably practiced way more than I did.

It's kind of cool to know that you knew a celebrity before they made it big.  Even back then, you got the feeling that she was destined for greater things mostly, in my opinion, because she worked so hard and so relentlessly (at piano anyway).

Oh Mz. Silverman by 606 (4.00 / 2) #15 Fri Jun 02, 2006 at 01:33:05 PM EST
She was on Mr. Show and Aqua Teen Hunger Force (well, her voice)! But I hear she's married to the guy who does the voice for the announcer on Powerpuff Girls. Oh well.

Christina Ricci nooooooooo!! First we lose Lindsay Lohan and now you? For shame!

Silverman by vorheesleatherface (4.00 / 1) #16 Fri Jun 02, 2006 at 02:41:15 PM EST
speaking of her telling dirty jokes...did you hear her tell the one about the family vaudville act?


Yes. by blixco (4.00 / 1) #17 Fri Jun 02, 2006 at 05:52:32 PM EST
Her version was the naughtiest, because it was her telling it.

Hers was awesome. But I also loved Gilbert G. being nasty. I kept picturing the parrot from alladin telling the joke.

Say, isn't that first by grendel (4.00 / 1) #19 Sat Jun 03, 2006 at 06:18:42 AM EST
woman the one we saw at the museum opening when I visted? If so she's cuter in person.

Have I told you much about my truck? I have a '96 F-150 with the 4.9 litre inline 6. 2 door, 2 wheel drive. It's very much the newer version of your old truck. Want to meet in Amarillo and trade cars for a couple months?

I'm glad your father's doing well. I really like the guy.

That's her. by blixco (4.00 / 1) #20 Sat Jun 03, 2006 at 08:17:31 AM EST
You recall, I nearly fell apart.

Your truck sounds close to what I want, but I really want a 68 or 69.  But yeah, let's trade...once gas goes down to $2 a gallon.

Damn it. by grendel (4.00 / 1) #21 Sat Jun 03, 2006 at 02:44:06 PM EST
I wanted your car because gas is $80 a gallon. That, and to drive like a maniac, OK, a fast maniac.
