    Film:

    Full Time Killer - Great film, amusing sidelines, shotgun assasin with a Bill Clinton mask. Generally a gunplay movie, but in a good way. I bet that anyone here would enjoy it unless you hate subtitles.

    The Happiness Of The Katakuris - Strange as hell. I can't even equate it to anything... let's see.... well, the "Overdose" and "I shot marvin scenes" from Pulp Fiction along with ****ed claymation and wierd song and dance numbers. Fairly good, wouldn't recommend unless you're a fan of Takashi Miike (He did Audition and Ichi The Killer) Black humor.

    Audition - Strange, freaky, plodding towards an epic finale. A general commentary about crazy girlfriends. Hard to follow in a Tarintino way. Takashi Miike.



    Oh, and I just got a Penpals album of ebay for $11 shipped. I could only find it for $36 in online stores. Happy happy kiddie



    Penpals



    Side note - I made $40 today for an OS install plus a few programs

    hmmm, may have to look into "The Happiness of the Katakuris" seeing as I'm likely the only other one on here who has seen Ichi.

    I think you'd like it, though I think you'd like fulltime killer more, it's kind of a Japanese "Boondock" with no moral justficaion of the killing, and competeting assasins.

    Well I can't think of anything specific... maybe some of that crazy Black Black gum. I'd appreciate anything really dorky touristy too. I kept the damn shopping bag surpip sent my junk in. Hooray for fortune arrows.

    Yeah...... "I have a taste for sweet things"
