Devotion ~ Tidbit #2 Road Trip!

Interesting travel videos! The architecture, both old and new, is amazing. My friend who creates stained glass works would be in heaven to see those massive windows. And oh! that magnificent cemetery! I could spend days exploring a place like that. :cool: :hello: Bienvenue Nebraska! I've watched ma...

Devotion ~ Tidbit #1 Ristuules

The Body Memory film is absolutely harrowing. Simple twine shaped into human figures which are then torn apart in a freight car. I found myself almost brought to tears. I also found the accompanying description of the work's central premise -- that our body remembers, not only individual experience...

Devotion Tidbit #3 - Cafe de Flore

:applause2: Brilliant FF! So much history in and around a simple coffee house. I took a cue from Patti’s M Train. Now I go to my favorite restaurants nearby in the late afternoon and bring a book. I sit, relax, read, and just ponder. Lunch is much more of an experience for me now, not just a meal. :...

Devotion ~ Tidbit #2 Road Trip!

Bonjour mes amis! As we leave the grim history of Estonia behind us, we travel to more festive surroundings: Paris, France. :snoopydances: Patti gets much of the inspiration for her story Devotion while staying here. This city is so large, colorful, and historic that it would impossible to do a sing...

Devotion ~ Tidbit #1 Ristuules

:dillingerhello:

I watched the entire Ristuules movie. It’s exactly like the trailer all the way through.

It’s stunning and haunting.

I think it works without the subtitles. You can sit back and study each tableaux without trying to read anything.

:lovehearts: A new season demands a new book discussion! :agree2: We begin every book discussion with "tidbits." Each tidbit is a little nugget of information about topics, places, themes, etc., that encompasses our featured book. :sherlockholmes: Let us know what you think of the tidbits presented,...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

:applause2:
In my wildest imagination, I cannot figure out why a "top" management firm AND a prominent law firm would not have written contracts. :perplexed:

I would expect celebrities not to have a clue, but every lawyer I know says to get it in writing! :facepalm:

Always excited for a new book discussion! :giddy:

I doubt the paperback version is any different from the hardback. Probably just a different page size and typeset. :bigwink:

CITY OF LIES (LAbyrinth) Updates

A bankruptcy filing from the studio could also hamper the lawsuit. If the guy is seeking money and the studio is in bankruptcy, there’s very little chance he’ll become one of the creditors. Banks and courts will get paid first. If he’s trying to get money out of Johnny, too, that won’t be a large pa...
