Hold it, guys; I promise you, I’m not Gilda. I don’t live in a film noir classic, I don’t live in Buenos Aires, and my husband isn’t trying to corner the world tungsten market. And I don’t go around obsessively singing “Put the Blame on Mame.”
That’s the negative; turn the page for the positive.
A quickie today; I’m squeezing a lot into a little time, and I’ll be gone from a good connection later in the week. Anyway, if you’d like a little film entertainment sometime, consider stopping by the Kino Haus. I discovered it while searching for “avant” items (as in avant garde). It’s not huge; a simple two-room skybox, enclosed from the view. You’ll beam in here, at the concession stand. Pick up whatever goodies you choose, then step through the curtain —
— to the second room, with comfy chairs and a pillow or two (and a donation meter, which I very nicely fed for the owner to help pay for the stream). There’s a group you can join for updates on coming attractions.
I’ve been writing about so many different things lately that this draft has sat forgotten in the back room of the blog. Now I submit it to you for your approval: a link to a machinima called Noob. If you enjoy it, come on back and let me know; I got a few giggles from it.
