"Mad Fun" is an understatement. It's insanely addictive. More addictive than anything I've tried, and it can get very expensive... I think getting hooked on meth would be cheaper, and an easier habit to break !

I even arrange meetups these days... here's one from earlier in the year (sorry about the Swedish) smile

Heh. Yeah. Yessir.
Thanks for everything, Zap. From years of service in the forum community to The Dark Crystal commentary to walking my drunk ass to the car at Comic-Con.

That - and at the end of said commentary introducing y'all to Tims Vermeer... which y'all apparently forget mentioning it on a later episode where the topic came up... LOLF!

Anyway, congratulations on getting a chunk of time back into your life, but, also - BOOHOO!

Holy Shit, I hope Mike will get well!

The fact you have to fundraise for his medical infuriates me, you should all go torches and pitchforks on a government that allows that to happen!!

My #feels are with Mike, though I have to save some #feels for my mom, who is in palliative care with a cancer tumor the size of a grapefruit in her brain, some in her lung, and whatnot... today we celebrated her 78:th birthday, which felt.... odd.  She'll end up 78 plus some days, or maaaybe weeks. She's been in hospital for weeks. Costs us $10 a day....no matter the care needed.....

I like that version a lot. The only problem is that the original scene spells out the theme of the movie, and this one kind of doesn't. I mean, I guess it does, but it's not as blatant as the "You need to let go" thing.

Bah, metaphor-schmetaphor, theme-fhleeme.

But if you are so in love with that (And Cuaron apparently is), you could have him spell it out for you. "See? You should have let go in the first place. Your attempt to cling on just made it worse". Or something.

About "that scene", the "cliffhanger" thing... I always thought there could have been an even MORE BETTERER solution to that.

- They have speed, she's tangled up with her feet in an *elastic* band
- Band is stretching, he goes "you need to let me go, or it'll break"
- She's all "fuck you, I'm holding on"
- Band stretches... stretches... they are slowing... slowing.... nearly at a stop...
- *PLINK* - band snaps. They are still moving... inches per second... away from safety.
- ...still holding hands...
- He's all "Okay, there's only one way for you to get back to the station. Equal and opposite action, and all that"
- She's all "What?"
- He's all "I need to push you away. You go home, I go away"
- She's all "No!"
- He's all "You got abetter idea!?"
- She's all "Oh fuck...."
- He's all "Yeah, fuck"
- She's all "I push you instead!!" *tears*
- He's all "No"... and shoves her off towards the station.
- They drift apart.. painfully slowly
- She's all "YOU ASSHOLE WHY DID YOU DO THAT"
- He's all "Hey, notice how pretty the stars are out here?"
- She's all "I HATE YOU" *devestated tears*
- He's all *turns on country music*
- He slooooowwwly drifts away.
- 3 minutes later, she bumps into the side of the station - safe - sobbing.
- Country music crackles out.

...tho, I'm still wondering:

Did we really hear different things/recordings...

...or did we hear the same thing and interpret it differently?

I've heard people thinking she was going for a South African accent....  whatever it was it was odd.... and I'm wondering how much my memory is playing tricks on me. I may need to buy the Blurry to check....

Whoah. So maybe she even says different shit in the US release, such that it makes it less understandable...??

Ok so I was confused by one comment you guys did. In the movie *I* saw, Jodie Foster DID have a very thick (and not terribly authentic) French accent.... do you Ammurrcans get a re-dubbed version where she speaks all yankee-doodly-like!?

Also, the scene you were hunting for (Where Robo-Charlto learns about the code mcguffin) is there in the movie. It makes no SENSE (he is tracking/somehow remote-scanning Robo-Daemon, and up pops a *scan of the code*... he looks at the code and somehow automatically realizes "Oh, If I change President=RoboCharlto I will rewl".... and  ...as a programmer, this is broken on so many levels of crazy when it comes to "code" (why does code do that, if they can READ the code they already HAVE the code, how can you by reading a screenful of assembly language determine that is what it does, yada yada yada)) ....but it DOES provide the "plot point" you guys where hunting....
