Well, today’s the day of our big group zoom chat. Because all four participants are in four different time zones, looks like we’ll be kicking things off at 9:00 p.m. my time. Yes, we’ll be eating into my bedtime, but I’m sure it’ll be worth it!
This morning, Akemi was incensed to learn that despite the fact that it IS, technically, “cold” “slaw” it is actually pronounced “cole slaw”.
It’s like that time she found it wasn’t “Happy Delayted Birthday” but “Happy Belated Birthday”. She argued that “delayted” was superior because you were delayed in your well-wishes.

Some great answers for on twitter – and a lot of love for the great Robin Williams.
Okay, convening our Crime Club. What did you all think of our third movie: Reservoir Dogs?
Quentin Tarantino’s first and, arguably, best film is atypical of the heist genre, totally skipping over the heist itself in favor of a focus on its aftermath. It almost unfurls like a stage play, jumping backwards and forwards in time to fill in the backstory gaps. A tight script, inspired direction, and stand-out performances establish it as a seminal work, but it’s Tarantino’s pop-infused dialogue that really breaks the mold.
This movie stands the test of time, proving just as great today as it was eighteen years ago when I first saw it on the big screen. Another Highly Recommended entry.
Tomorrow, we’ll check out something a little different – a 2012 Hindi movie called Kahaani…
