Personally, I'm having a two hour break watching "Where the Buffalo Roam"......a one star movie with Bill Murray as Hunter Thompson......And it may be bad, but I just love this turkey.....always gets me!!!! And....Neil Young did the music........perfect!

And then I suppose I'll go check in at CNN again..........

Why not turn the set off and do something like play music, wash dishes, read a good book or have a hot bath with the dishes while reading a good book and playing tin whistle. Nobody says you have to have the television on.

Geez, Spaw, that sounds like one Godawful bad movie...careful...you gonna rot your mind!

Sophocleese, as usual, is the voice of reason. I think I'll go play the guitar or work on my William S**tner impressions. :-)

I rented movies. I washed the dishes. I cleaned my house. I scrubbed my toilet. Can't concentrate enough to read. Had a hot bubble bath. I tried to play the fiddle and couldn't. I am watching SciFi channel. Good escape venue even if I don't understand it. Can't stand Disney just now, all cartoons. May rent Spaw's movie tomorrow.....sounds like just the "garbage for the mind" that I need.........back to SciFi Channel. Better than CNN et al.

I haven't watched television since Tuesday evening - except for Buffy the Vampire slayer last night, and even then I missed the very end of it..... I've not put the radio on other than the 1 hour alarm. I have read a book though - four times!

There is only so much anyone can take of this saturation news coverage without being ghoulish. And I don't want to be a ghoul who can't say no.

Hey, Spaw! Now I know why we differ so often on political threads! I watch CNN sometimes too, but I like the Fox News Channel better because you get both sides of the story!

Well, maybe that's not the only reason I guess. :>)

I can't play music right now. I tried to watch something other than the news on television, but I couldn't do it. I had to go back to the news. I find that tranquilizers work pretty good some of the time.

Hey Amergin, you must be the only other person in the universe to have watched Matewan apart from me. I have never met anyone who knows of the movie. Might be because we are in NZ, but I really liked the movie,in fact have rented it a couple of times. If it's any consolation, we have had the WTC disaster one channel or another 24hrs a day. In spite of the tragedy I can't help feeling some news reports are verging on voyerism. Cheers.

When I want a uplifting film to watch its almost always The Fisher King, Robin Williams and Jeff Bridges.

mcpiper, I've been in the little ghost town where they filmed Matewan. It's right here in West Virginia. Pretty much nobody lives there now, and you have to walk across a railroad bridge to get to it. It's kind of spooky.

Hi CarolC, one of my wishes is to visit places like that, along with whats left of Route 66 and other sort of forgotten places. I would love to go to one of Dwight Diller's banjo camps and visit places around that area, how about where they filmed Deliverence, is there really a place like that. That movie would have to be the spookiest of all time.
cheers

After slamming Sophocleese in an earlier thread and being reprimended by Sorcha, I promised to find something nice to say about Soph. Okay, here it is. Soph's first entry here makes the most sense. Play some music. For those who said they just can't play anything right now, of course you can. Play one of those Scottish laments and dedicate it to the victims.

I'm working on some Christmas projects, practicing my singing lessons and reading my favorite book when I need a real break from reality - - The Wind in the Willows. You UK 'catter 'critters can be real proud of Kenneth Grahaem. Some how, sensible animals make more sense to me now than all of this maddness.

You gals, a little eye candy for movies helps too. Robert Redford in The Horse Whisperer and Tom Cruise in Rainman and Jerry McGuire are nice to watch.

McPiper -- 'Mudge and I have owned a copy of "Matewan" since it came out and watch it frequently. We also recommended it often when we owned our "gourmet" video rental business in Portsmouth, NH. John Sayles is one of our favorite directors.

I haven't watched television since 1983 -- not for any political reason; it just doesn't fit into our schedule. (Discovered that in the middle of watching "Brideshead Revisited" on Masterpiece Theatre -- kept missing a middle episode. Didn't see the whole thing until last year when my sister gave me the videotapes.) Also, without cable, reception in our area is limited. But even now that cable is available, TV just doesn't fit in. If I really need to see something, I'll ask a friend to tape it so we can watch it when we want to watch it.

Tuesday all our news came via 4 websites (Mudcat a major source), the radio, and telephone. Saw plenty of stills, though, but didn't see any TV images/coverage until yesterday at a friend's.

Music does help.

We are now over 100 channels on cable here now and the only things worth watching are reruns of British mystery and comedy shows and some old Jackie Gleason. If you do have to watch the WTC reporting, WPIX New York is doing a good job; they are on cable here in Canada.

No, RangerSteve, I can't. I know because I've tried. We are all experiencing this in our own way. And that's ok.

Also, on the subject of the news (I've seen this brought up by several people who live outside the US). Most of what I'm seeing (and I'm pretty much glued to my television all the time), is not a rehashing of what happened on Tuesday. Mostly it's a discussion about what we need to do, what we know now, and what we're doing to find out what we need to know.

For anyone who lives outside the US, please understand that Tuesday was not the end of the attack. We are still under attack. Watching the news is the only way for some of us to get any kind of reassurance that we, as a nation, are carrying on and doing what needs to be done.

Hey! If you get Speedvision then tonite could be your nite!!!! If you're a James Taylor fan you oughta' be in hog heaven and if you collect "Worst Movies" then you'll be positively orgasmic!

On Lost Drive-In starting at 11 PM Eastern, is the oft mentioned on Mudcat, "TWO LANE BLACKTOP".........you'll love it.......it really sucks bad.........The dialogue between a dead "Beach Boy" and a catatonic James Taylor is aw inspiring......as in "Aw shit, this is awful!"
