How do I look?
I have switched to the beta version of blogger.
Thanks to Mad Ethel and Gary for going before us and sacrificing themselves on the bleading edge as guinea pigs.
Is there a politically correct term for "guinea pig"? I really don't feel right about calling people pigs even though a guines pig is not really a pig according to this page. At least not in public.
Congratulate me on the purchase of the 10th anniversary special edition of Shawshank Redemption.
My next blog post will be about this movie, but it won't be so much a movie review but rather an essay about why this film deeply resonates with me and how the story has made its way to my heart even though I have never been to prison (despite my suspicious looks).
I hope you have seen this movie, and if not, please do it. As of now, the voting public of the Internet Movie Database ranks Shawshank as the second most highly regarded film ever, so please don't tell me you have not seen it or I will not party with you. Might as well tell the world of your state of shock and dismay ensuing the learning of the Lindbergh kidnapping.
Check out this clip I found on Youtube. It contains two deleted scenes which the DVD does not feature for some reason. I really like the second one. Found myself gasping for air along with Red.
