Re: Attica Question #2 ~ Chloe

So true, Theresa! And I'm with you, trygirl, in admiring Chloe a great deal. She is fearless and smart and brave and positive. I can just see Johnny and Lily-Rose discussing Chloe's adventures. I think she is a beautifully written character with just enough flaws to be perfectly real, but with none ...

Re: Attica Question #1 ~ The Many Worlds of Attica

Ladylinn, you beat me to Punch and Judy. Their happy home with their friend the policeman as neighbor was so out of character that it was very appealing. I half expected them to turn evil, but they proved to be only helpful. I also found Jordy's camp among the grandfather clocks an appealing place. ...

Re: Attica Tidbit #3 ~ Victorian Row Houses

Thanks for this, Liz, especially the pictures. They give a real sense of the setting of the story. Wow, that Royal Crescent is amazing. It almost looks big enough to hold Attica!

Re: ONBC Poll - You Choose Our Next Book

It has been a very long time since I read Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, so I am going to vote for that also. I remember enjoying the book very much and think it would be great to get in a refresher course before seeing what Tim and Johnny do with it. I hope we will also read the...

Re: Loser's Town Question #31 ~ Ready for More?

I'm eager to read more about Spandau and see how his character develops and grows. Like many of you mentioned in earlier threads, I hope we will see Dee and her mother again and Potts. I think we are finished with Bobby Dye, but I could be wrong. I really enjoyed Depp's writing style and how he has ...

Re: Loser's Town Question #26 ~ Dreams

I know you said to tie it in to the characters, but I just can't help but post what I always think of when anyone mentions dreams. The wonderful poet Langston Hughes said in his tiny poem "Dreams" Hold fast to dreams For if dreams die Life is a broken-winged bird That cannot fly. Hold fast...

Re: Loser's Town Question #22 ~ Potts

With knowing everything that Potts is thinking, he just picked me up in that van going up to Wonderland and carried me through his miserable doings right through his escape in the rickety boat. I like the way you put that, Betty Sue, because that's pretty much the same feeling I got. I was hooked o...

Re: Loser's Town Question #7 ~ Terry McGuinn

I think Daniel Depp did the Irish thing just right with Terry. All the good stuff was there, along with the toughness. I think I referred to Robert Parker's Spencer series earlier and I am a huge fan of that series, so any comparisons are meant to be high compliments. So when we meet Terry for the f...

Re: Loser's Town Question #4 ~ Spandau

I did see David Spandau as a very sympathetic character and I liked him the moment we met him in the scenes with Annie the agent. I love the way he thinks and observes the world around him. I love his wit and his sarcasm. He reminds me a little bit of Robert Parker's Spencer in the things he says an...

Re: Loser's Town Question #2 ~ Sunset Boulevard

This passage is one of my favorites also, and I have to thank all of you for making it even more meaningful with your insights. I have been to LA only once about 5 years ago and I took this drive with my cousin, who has lived in West Hollywood for 20 years or so and who has a glitzy mid-century glam...

Re: Bryan Burrough in Austin

I have to add to what DITHOT said. Bryan Burrough is really just one of us - I think he said he'd had two Chuy's margaritas, so he was saying whatever he felt like saying. So he was funny and profane and very, very real. And it was obvious that he was very comfortable with what he had written when c...

Re: Glass Books Question #25 ~ Glass Books

Yes, I would read a glass book. It would not be good for me. It would be the end of me. But I am a highly addictive person and, unlike several of you, I would love to give myself up completely to the experience. I would especially like to be able to experience things from the point of view of the en...

Re: Glass Books Question #23 ~ Casting

LOL, Liz! I'm glad you posted Timothy Spall's name, because I saw him for Dr. Lorenz or Mr. Blenheim for sure, but couldn't remember his name. Love your pick of Devon Aoki. I'd never heard of her, but she certainly has the look to play Angelique. For what it's worth, here's the rest of the things sc...

Re: Glass Books Question #23 ~ Casting

I had started a dream cast list - and it is a dream cast! - but it is at home. A couple of quick thoughts. Gemini, I cast Viggo Mortensen as Dr Svenson also. Yum! Johnny & Viggo :cloud9: I would also pick Reese Witherspoon for Miss Temple. She was so good as Becky Sharp in Vanity Fair and Miss T...

Re: Glass Books Question #22 ~ All Things Johnny

I only have time for a quick post before I'm off to work, but wanted to chime in on this one. I picked Chang for Johnny to play. I guess that's the obvious choice, but the "look" is just so right for him - scarred eyes, sunglasses, red leather coat and boots. We know how Johnny loves creat...
