The weather is perfect. This is the weather I crossed half the country to find. We walked twice as far today because we didn't have any of that spring-break, titty-flashing sun beating down on us. Back when it was all freaking hot I wanted to be inside an air conditioned movie theater, but now? Now outdoors in Seattle is the only place to be.

If you don't love overcast weather, you're crazy to be paying the fortune it costs to live in this market. There a a million sunny places with cheap housing, you know.

Words cannot express my disappointment upon discovering, after a second, closer look, that the movie recommended by Sean Nelson is not entitled "Mister Poe".

The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen committed to film. If you're into getting high, this is a great movie for you. If you don't believe in taking mind-altering chemicals, this movie is a good substitute.

Yeah, like the desert or the South. No thanks.

I love you more than bees love pollen. More than doors love being opened. Or cell phones love being punched. You are my rock, and my redeemer. My Moses and My Yeshouaaaaaa. My Prozac pill in the form of writing.

You're better for depression than going to a Fireworks store with Tina Fey and Ellen Degeneres and buying hellza cute bottle openers.

From the Bhuddist perspective: The ghosts want to "die" or pass away into nothingness because only in non-being are we free from suffering. Even dead these ghosts are subject to desire and therefore, pain. They seek Nirvana. BTW is is a very funny movie.

@2 With ya there. I was like "holy wow, Mr. Poe already has his own movie." But, no.

I guess the lack of an older Republican man in the brief description should have made that obvious...
