78 79

Got the disk back...actually borrowing nils'
he's right the movie thrill is done, the competition has lost all meaning and luster...hopefully this doesn't reflect upon our friendship.
so bored.
80 will be non climatic.
It's like a big ol' monkey on my back like a giant hairless monkey that nobody loves and no one is sure why it exists, but it's there. gross.

Grind grind.  Actual chess against Death would be more exciting.

Working on 71 tonight.  I have to say, it kind of feels like the magic is gone a bit from the competition.  I know the movie sooooooooooo well at this point.  There's nothing new to learn, I just grind out each viewing.  I think I might need to do a drunken marathon this weekend to rev my engine back up.

Finished #70 last night but I'm stalled behind Cole while she gets a replacement disk (I have one but I'm totally not going to let her use it).

Technical Difficulties

Sorry folks...just as we near the home stretch...while viewing number 78 with my cousin and her fiancé, the last 4 minutes started skipping, and while they were in awe of my abilities to recite the last four minutes verbatim, the disk is broken...the competition is stalled once again.

More soon.

Nearing the home stretch

Nicole's over 3/4 of the way home and I've got some catching up to do.  Watching #70 on the bus to Damariscotta right now (the other option was The Wedding Planner) and hopefully #71-75 tonight and tomorrow.  I'm anticipating some support from Nicole's relatives helping me to catch up tonight, and I should be helped out by the weather, which should be cold enough that it will force us to stay inside.

Took a short break last night to watch Horrors of Spider Island (aka It's Hot in Paradise) and I highly recommend it if you like terrible, terrible movies.  Otherwise avoid it.

In southern lands there are creatures that are called the ape.


I feel nauseous. Physically ill.
I'm out of my gourd, like Phil was out of his gourd....
I've come to the end of me, there's no way out, just remember we had a beautiful day together.
he just smiled at me, did you see that? i believe he did.
hey there mister, something i can do you for?
quick get the word out somebody kidnapped phil, we're going after him
why would anyone steal a groundhog
i can think of a couple of reasons, pervert.
insert crap music, fake car chase sounds, bad 80s background
he must have just snapped
this outta be good,
why can he be thinking?
not bad for a quadraped, side of your eye
hey they're chasing us
make it fun
don't drive angry, don't drive angry...

i'm worried.


It's scary how easily the flow of the movie came back to me.  By Jons' conversation with the painter I was reciting lines along with the characters in Swedish, and I greeted each actor by their real name every time they appeared on screen.  It's still frustrating that the commentator Peter Cowie states that all of the characters are framed in the shot where Plogg confronts Jonas Skat when Antonius Block is clearly not pictured.  I may not catch Cole tonight, but I can feel the familiar thrill of The Seventh Seal overcoming me again.

73, 74....

Here's what I have to say. It frightens me that I think it's sweet how he doesn't give up on her...either there's a softer side to Cole, or...well I don't want to consider the alternative. Bonus viewings this weekend, while visiting with family we'll be watching the movie since they've declared it to be one of their favorites. I hope to watch 75 before work today, 76 tonight when i get in from work, 77, 78, and 79 before i leave for Dams, then 80 on the bus, 81 with the uncle and cousin. go team cole.
