Oh, we will, DitHoT!

By the way—thank you for all that information! I'm going to save it and give it to my daughter's geography teacher (if that's okay with you). I'm sure he'll find it useful, and a great way to get the kids to see the beauty and wonder of where they are living.

You have made me very excited, DitHoT, as I live in the Canadian version of the taiga. When JD makes this movie, he'll have to shoot it somewhere. I could certainly give his production company a few hints about just where that could be...

Lord, I'm dying to discuss this book. Unfortunately I won't be able to until next week.

The truth is that right now, I’m carrying more scars from the field of love than the field of war. That's interesting. Fits a little theory I have about the author's feelings about women... This will be a fascinating book to discuss. Hope it's okay if I join you guys. Thanks for the bio, Liz.

As I said in another (probably the wrong) thread, I'd have Todd begin the movie as a horrible wretch (as horrible as Johnny wants, because we all know he will want that...) and, as he performs the grisly murders, have him become more and more presentable so that by the time he commits his last murde...

I must say, I'm curious about how singing fits into such a weird, macabre story—unless it is made very tongue-in-cheek and funny. I would expect black humour from TB & JD, so I do think the musical aspect will only lighten the production further.

I feel like bit of an interloper because I haven't been around much lately, and never here. But, what the heck... Boo, I loved your explanation. It makes sense out of something I've never understood: the human delight for gruesome horror. ("Well, at least I'm not as crazy as that!") But no...
