Just opened in Eugene. It's great. See it.

It just left Memphis. Only lasted here two weeks, but those who saw it enjoyed it (I work part-time at Studio on the Square, the best gol'-dang motion pitcher theatre in these here parts, showing indie films and works by local filmmakers).
I always like movies that have a little something at the end of the credits. Those people who leave while the credits are rolling miss out on it. Only about 5 seconds long (if that), but good for a chuckle.
And I digged waiting outside the theater to listen to the theme song; good tune. I'm afraid it may lose in the Oscar race for Best Song to "Into the West" from LOTR:ROTK, but probably not by much.

I couldn't stop myself from going back to see Triplets again. It's been a long time where I was so delighted and amazed by any film.
Because I have a friend who is an editor, I always stay for the credits to see if he worked on the film. And plus, it seems rude to leave before.
This past Triplets viewing I was accompanied by a toddler who was rapt with attention and maintained his interest in the credits with the promis that there would be a treat in the end.
Great song, but I heard the kiss song from A Might Wind would win.

I am a big fan of the Triplets and was looking for someone who could tell me what the equation at the bottom of the screen means in the opening credits?
I believe it's a differential equation but my higher math is a bit weak.
thanks for any help

Einstein Feild Equations, so the story goes:
I always wanted to write an advise column. Anybody else got a question?

Why are cows purple on Thursdays?

I see on Amazon that it goes to DVD on May 4.

Mother's Day present!
Now that I've seen Peter Pan, which seemed to come and go in these parts without any discussion, I may have to buy that.
It's so amazing. Better than the book. Better than the stage play. No need to say but better than the Disney animated version. Parts of the film are like the good parts of the Peter Pan ride at Disneyland.
About cows: Thursday coresponds to the planet Jupiter. I did find one URL designed to help children calculate how many cows will fit on Jupiter.
What I know about cows is that when you see them lying down in the grass you can be assured that it is either raining, or is going to rain. I learned this when I lived on a farm after graduating from nursing school (it didn't last--one encounter with cleaning the chicken shed was enough).

They showed it here (UK) on Xmas Day. My entire family was enchanted. We particularly liked the frog-dynamiting episode.

I never have any interest in buying videos or dvds but I'm going to buy The Triplettes of Belleville DVD when it comes out. I loved it!
|Posted on Tuesday, April 06, 2004 - 04:31 pm: |
Me too! There will be run on them. They'll have to go to a second pressing.

I just pre-ordered it from amazon, with a bunch of other stuff I wanted. Free shpping over $25.
I'm still awaiting publication of Dr. Ikkaku Ochi: Medical Photographs from Japan Around 1900 DAP which has been postponed twice already. I've even contacted the publisher. They think it'll be in in June.
Look here if you want to see what it's about:

Ellen, that books looks fascinating. I feel I've read about the collection.
Liz, yes, the frog scene--the umbrella--it's all so wonderful.
Peter Pan is the other one I need to buy.
If you're looking for something to make up the $25.00, you could pre-order Olympic Games. I'll also be at WisCon, the Nebulas, and doing signings in the Bay Area, Portland, Seattle, and San Diego over the summer.
|Posted on Wednesday, April 07, 2004 - 05:48 pm: |
I've already bought a bunch of stuff to take it slightly over the $25 limit.
Whatever the url is above..it wouldn't load for me
|Posted on Sunday, April 11, 2004 - 09:34 am: |
Oh. Will have to find the right one. Not to fixate or anything but I'm glad the unread galley copy sent to Don D at SF Chronicle got more than one bid on its ebay debut.
|Posted on Monday, April 26, 2004 - 04:19 pm: |
Doh! I'm sorry, Leslie.
(I just realized: this is based on the story that originally appeared in Asimov's, no?) Okay, there. I just bought my copy.
In other news, I saw Triplets. I really loved that tune--catchy!
|Posted on Tuesday, April 27, 2004 - 12:51 pm: |
It was a great tune, eh? Hard to believe a stupider one won the Oscar.
Trying to figure out if I can buy Triplets for my daughter's birthday, or if she'll figure out it's really just displaced want.
|Posted on Tuesday, April 27, 2004 - 01:52 pm: |
Well, since she doesn't live with you any more why don't you buy one for her and one for you? :-)

Loved TRIPLETS, I went to the theatre to watch it again a couple of weeks ago. And I agree completely about the Oscar: it should have gone to TRIPLETS, instead they awarded what I thought was the worst song of all five.
If you buy TRIPLETS, go for the special edition DVD, because it contains Chomet's first movie with a proto-Madame Souza.

I think the family ought to get it for me for Mother's Day instead of something decorative and ceramic. But if they don't, I should be getting money in RSN.

I saw the buzz here and decided to check Triplets out, even though it didn't seem like my thing. It was great! I especially love the dog's deep issues with trains.
|Posted on Monday, May 10, 2004 - 12:31 pm: |
I now own Triplets and have played the trailer and the music video on my computer. One simply cannot help but leap to the dance when that song is going round and round, like a train around the rim of a dog bowl.
This film makes me excited to be alive.
|Posted on Monday, May 10, 2004 - 08:25 pm: |
Me too me too. Mine came the day before it was scheduled for release! I hope to watch it (again) this weekend.
