CHAOS REIGNS!
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE SURREAL ANIMAL MOMENTS IN MOVIES?

"The cow on the roof of the house in O Brother Where Art Thou-tombeet

"There is a snake in The Thin Red Line that is both surreal and real. It just suddenly appears on screen, this angry, probably poisonous snake during a battle and jolts you out of the fear of bullets into a fear of nature..........then it's back to bullets." -henry

Participatory Madness

the "fix your face" banner is not long for this world. soon new themes will overtake it.Do I ask to much of you? A couple of days ago I was talking to Nick about what he was up to movie-wise and he was like "basically my life is controlled by Nathaniel this week." Ha! Between the podcasts and the Smackdowns and the theme weeks and the "Best Shots"... I guess I do like recommending bossing people around, cinematically!

But I've had strangely few takers for my proposed e-mail group for self-improvement and 'get back to the gym' co-misseration. I know that you're all beautiful and fit and need no makeovers or exercize prompts. But I do. Hence the roping in of other people to my 'how to get to the gym?' drama. if you want to hear how The Piano can help you in your workouts and other such cinematic/corporeal nonsense, join this experiment. I'm sending out the first lob on June 1st. If I ever write a self-help book, you can say you were there first.

And for those of you who are like 'SHUT UP. Work on the Oscar charts,' please know that that's actually what I'm doing right now as you're reading this.

Update and P.S. Here's how i know this fix yo'self moment was meant to be. Today I had a doctor's appointment just after posting this and I get to the office and who is on the cover of the sole magazine sitting on top of the checkout counter where I stood but Ms. Kidman!

I already told you to change your eating habits. One quick path to weight loss is the elimination of bread. Drink plenty of water. And since you're a musical theater person, how come you're not dancing to the music of your favorite musicals more frequently?

Oscar charts ---- YAY!

I would never say you're bossy, but you're definitively hyper-active. How do you do it? I don't think I'll be able to vote for the Smackdown because I just can't find enough time to watch the four movies!

I have never been fatter than when I lived in the US so good luck with that make-over! My advice is simple: don't do it without a personalized diet. You absolutely need the help of a dietician otherwise you will be starving for nothing. Spinning does wonders too.

I actually began a diet last week. So count me in! Support is very important during a diet and to maintain the weight off.

SO up for this. If I don't have a new Film Experience podcast to listen to while I workout ain't nothing gonna get me to the gym.

Pedro - i would need your email. thanks you can let me know at filmexperience (at) gmail (dot) com

I think that diet is more important than exercise. And I would think that just skipping a subway ride or two and walking would be all the exercise anyone needs.

As for diet, just make sure you don't follow The Word of Wisdom, at least not how it's actually practiced. :-)
