    The November Rain music video story is the deep dive I didn’t know I needed as it also turned into the timeline featured on Rolling Stone of the feud b/w Axl and Kurt Cobain. Who knew?? Kurt always seemed so passive to me so an interesting look into a different side of his personality. Helped to pass the time on the long drive back from Santa Barbara to home in Sacramento yesterday.

    Interesting article on the boyfriend loophole. Validates my feeling that I would not want to date someone who owned a gun. Restriction to be included in the dating app profile I haven’t gotten down to writing yet.

    Still reeling from the “Difficult Father” article. I had a difficult father. He died in his 40s so there’s much I didn’t or couldn’t say……

    That short film… The feels. I turned 50 this week so have been going through a lot of emotions and this made me cry.

    Kim, I dig the photo! I don’t think I have ever smelled a real violet. We don’t seem to have them out here. … … … A quick question, folks – is it okay to wear a suit jacket that doesn’t button? Or is it maybe only okay to a certain point, and then it looks bad? Or, is it not okay at all? Maybe only if it looks like it *might* close, even if it actually doesn’t? (I think I will aim for that.)(Or, I will just stay in my “soft pants.” Ha.)

    NENEH CHERRY’S “BUFFALO STANCE”!!!! An absolute favorite of mine! And I shared it with a 20-something who is very knowledgeable about current music and it stands up. He loved it and totally respected the artistry and the production.

    I love the 1995 version too, saw it at the theater and have seen it a couple times more, loved it every time. Both Ciaran Hinds and Amanda Root were perfect. Great cast in general and beautifully shot.

    Thanks for sharing the short Mixtape film — I have a huge crush on Tobias Menzies.

    That McSweeney’s piece is hilarious! And not quite on-topic, but dying to see this Emma Thompson film, out on Hulu today — and how marvelously chic / inspiring is she here, with her amazing hair, and the devastatingly understated / expensive (maybe Egg?) navy ensemble??

    I am so not down with this new adaptation of Persuasion! It’s my favorite Austen novel, it’s the most mature, melancholy Austen novel, and while I loved the updated Emma that came out a couple of years ago, this…ain’t it. Reader, I have come to grump. (If you’re grumpy like me, seek out the BBC version from, gulp, 1995. Boy, I’m old lol.)

      Elizabeth, I own the DVD and I live for the moment when Ciaran Hinds as the Captain intones in voiceover, “You pierce my soul…” I have seriously thought of creating a website that lists, for those in need, the time stamp of that moment and moments like that in other films. A Confession/Kiss Cheat Code, if you will. Elizabeth, if we were not women of such charmingly modest comportment, we could suggest that our favoring this film version reveals the discernment of refined sensibilities…

      Elisabeth, I simply *adore* grumpy people. When people complain, I feel closer to them. (You know, unless that’s alll they do. Which is clearly not you.) Anyhow, I just came on to ask, what was it about the latest Emma that spoke to you? Bc I don’t think I got it. Which is okay. I am just curious. … … … Also, hi D.!! That is a good idea for a website.

        I haven’t seen that version of Emma so I’d be interested to know, too. Hi, back, Viajera! As a film bonus to both of y’all, let me share a hidden gem, I Know Where I’m Going! It’s not Austen-based, but it has a warm wittiness and stars Wendy Hiller.

          And in that spirit … I enjoyed Ninotchka sooooo much more than I was expecting!! I have come late to the Garbo fanclub, but here I am. It surprised me. Mind you, a lot does, these days. Harrumph.

            One of my favorites and probably my most favorite Garbo movie (“she laughs!”) aside from Camille.

      Also the Netflix Persuasion trailer is causing lots of uproar in the Austenites: https://www.harpersbazaar.com/culture/film-tv/a40288505/persuasion-trailer-jane-austen-reaction/.
      My fave Emma (and there’s been quite a few decent/good ones) may be the 2009 Romala Garai TV series.
