@jfruh The story I'd always heard is that she quit when it was clear what form the (extraordinary) sex scenes would take, but this version is so much more Wiseau. What's great about The Room is that it is in so many ways what a movie made by a 10-year old boy who just got dumped for the first time would be like.
@antarctica starts here the moral is: Cost-benefit analysis, do it always
I would on occasion go see double features at the Holiday Twin in Fort Collins, CO. Last one was probably Toy Story 3 and Despicable Me, with my little brother. Still around, but probably not for long, which is a shame. Fort Collins' tiny indie theater produced a successful kickstarter to convert to digital, though.
@The Dependent Clause odd! I know it was gone for a time, in the deathless purgatory of Internet caches and copied blog posts alongside the noxiously sarcastic 10.0 review of a John Lennon greatest hits album and their infamous "Zaireeka" pan. Guess BoC endorsement started fitting into the Pitchfork brand again.
@petejayhawk it'll do in the interim. Congratulations to melis and jfruh

Everybody who bought a Daft Punk album in 2013. Why else would you?
Also, not Pitchfork Media, who erased their perfect 10 "Music Has the Right to Children" review from the site when Tycho and Nathan Fake and who knows how many other imitators wrung their sound dry
Where was this guy when Is This It came out, I wonder
$5 says he loved the shit out of it.
@Niko Bellic you are right about proximal distance being vitally important, but only for a certain caliber of relationship. You wildly underestimate the capacity for people to maintain relationships remotely. I'd say it's demonstrably true that they can, and they have since before modern telecommunication came into common usage.
I mean honestly, deeming human relationships meaningless and unimportant because their initial circumstances couldn't be maintained seems like a really awful way to live.
@Niko Bellic all these damned kids and their irrational desire to "be close to people"
