My World (Last Week)

So for a while I’ve wanted to start posting what I’m watching, reading, listening to and experiencing a la Matthew Clayfield, because even if I’d love to expand on most (all?) of these things, I’ve learned that that’s just not a reality, particular at this time.  If anything, I figure mentioning it at least might spark some interest, and ever-conscious of such things, it makes a nice record for myself.  To kick things, off I figure I’ll include the last week or two.

  1. I’m very glad Muriel or The Time of Return has been released as a DVD. I have seen this film once ten years ago, and want to see it again. Delphine Seyrig is one of my most favorite actresses.

  2. Kathleen- It certainly doesn’t feel that way until I put it down in list form! Good luck as you finish up your firt year–make sure to send me a message on how it all went.

    celinejulie- I was really excited that I was able to give Muriel a second look, as the VHS I saw it on several years ago left a lot to be desired. I’m hoping to string some thoughts together in the near future.
