... tonight for tomorrow... but here is something to hold you over.

On Fridays I will post a weekend movie selection. I will begin with this movie... Kundun (which means "Ocean of Wisdom" or "The Presence"). If you have not seen it yet... you really should. It was directed by Martin Scorsese. This movie cronicles the life of the Dalai Lama up to his exile in India. It's a visual feast that is quite unlike any movie we have been conditioned by Hollywood to experience. Most western reviewers had a problem with this movie... I think because it didn't fit within the safe and standard mold that they set for themselves. I love it. I think it is one of Scorsese's masterpieces (perhaps that is what the reviewers could not shake... perhaps they wanted to see a Tibetan Goodfellas... LOL!) The movie treats the audience as intellengent individuals and doesn't go out of it's way to explain what and why... but simply presents what is.

It's one of those movies that I pull out every 6 months or so to remind me that we are all here to fullfill a purpose. That life is a challenge... and that we can meet it with grace. There is a wonderful scene when the "chosen"as a child is told that his purpose in this life is to love... to simply love. If every child is told and reminded of that... hmmm... think of the posibilities. So, if you are looking for an experience unlike any other... watch it this weekend.

And if you do... let me know what you thought of it.

I'll update later in the afternoon.

UPDATE 10:30 AM

So, over the next couple of days I will be doing something about this mess. I'm excited about it because a couple of new purchases will be part of this "makeover." In fact, I'm starting this evening with the help of a couple of friends. After which we are planning on trying out the "USA approved" bottle of absinthe that I found available at a local liquor store. Sure, it will probably lack the wormwood... so, the green fairy may not dance with us like she did last Summer,,, but hey, it's worth a shot. I'll post pics one the makeover is compete.

UPDATE 3:35 PM

* I'm considering a new template for my blog.
* whackman has bitten at the bait and posted more pics.
* The opposite of love is indifference.

    Porky's 3 is very much like the movie you talk about. Minus the gratuitous nudity and vulgar language...which leaves me wondering why you're recommending this film. Does it have chase scenes, car crashes or a Halloween ending?
