Nope - it was euro60.

Quote
The Theory of Everything is a nice love story, told from the perspective of Jane Hawking (whose memoir on her life with Stephen forms the basis of the movie). It is NOT a Stephen Hawking bio-pic. It does NOT explore why Stephen Hawking's scientific theories were so important. As long as you keep that in mind, you'll have a good time (assuming you like a good love story).

I enjoyed it, but I didn't enjoy it as much as CR did above! I thought it was well done and interesting and well told. I will likely never watch it again and was all "I know they get divorced...when's the trouble coming?" I do have to thank someone from these boards (maybe it was va-vacious?) who said that it wasn't about the science but rather about the romance, so I knew that was coming and was prepared for it.

Nope- not me! I remember that comment too... I nominate Poolio or Trixi as the person who said that.
My guess is BUTTER!

2015 movies:

1. The To Do List It could have been so good (Clark Gregg! Bill Hader! Connie Britton! Alia Shawkat!) and yet, it wasn't.
2. The Internship My office plays a pivotal role in this movie! Plus, it was actually pretty good.
3. Leap Year Despite Amy Adams and Adam Scott, this movie is terrible. My not so inner feminist is super annoyed by this movie.
4. Blackhat +1 for going to see it with Lando's friend Gwynner! And for Thor hacking shirtless.  It was better than I expected, and Viola Davis was really good in it. The hand-held camera style was headache inducing, and it was definitely shot with an eye towards global release- and it will make bank.
5. Chef So good! Loved the story, loved the music, loved how it was a nice, little movie.
6. The Hangover III Better than I expected, but it was not a great movie.
7. Birdman It was a technically amazing movie, but I didn't really like it. The last 20 minutes really went off the rails for me.
8. The Game A Michael Douglas movie from the late '90s. Too twisty and turn-y, and I don't think I really like Douglas.
9. How to Train your Dragon- This is still a really good movie.
10. Horns- This movie could have been good, and it just wasn't. Dan Radcliffe was miscast or something. I almost turned it off when the CGI snakes came on. Ew.
11. Kingsmen It was fun, over the top, and just right for Valentine's Day. I would enjoy more flicks in this series.
12. Wet Hot American Summer- This movie never fails to please.
13. Galaxy Quest- it was on cable, so it loses some points for commercials.
The weekend of teen flicks:

14. Step Up hard to believe this movie came out 10 years ago. They added some weird plot points that totally detracted from the movie (minor character is killed, noone really mourns- it was odd)
15. The Duff- Ken Jeong dialed back the usual hyperkenetics, and was quite good as the teacher. Despite being in their late twenties, the leads were pretty decent as high schoolers.
16. Pitch Perfect- The beginning drags, but I am so looking forward to the sequel.
17. Baby Mama- a far better movie than I expected, and it didn't follow the storyline shown in previews (which is why I ignored it so long) I'd watch just about anything with Poehler and Fey.
18. Maleficent- a minor detail, but I really liked that the Prince didn't want to kiss Sleeping Beauty: "I only met her once! She's asleep!" I was wondering if they would find a way to de-rapify the story.
19. How to Train your Dragon II I would like an entire movie on just the dragons. I swear Toothless is based on my cat Ozzie!
20. Labyrinth- David Bowie sure has some tight pants. As a kid I thought Sarah was so justified in her anger over taking care of the baby, but as an adult I want to tell her to stop whining!
21. Knights of Badassdom This was really bad. Ryan Kwanten, Peter Dinklage, and Summer Glau could not save it.
22. World War Z It was actually pretty good, and I could see why it was so expensive- so many people, so many locations. I haven't seen Pitt do the Pitt thing in awhile, and it was nice to see some movie-star-dom.
23. Mr. Turner Timothy Spall did a great job, and definitely deserved his nominations. I felt like I needed to know more about JMW Turner before watching, because I was confused through most of the movie, and had no idea who the majority of characters were. Oh- I almost needed subtitles, because I could not understand the dialects!

I'll send a PM with identifying info as to what I'll be wearing, which will depend on the weather--or at least the weather forecast, which isn't always accurate.  If there's really such a thing as reincarnation, I want to come back as a meteorologist--the only line of work I know where you can be wrong so often and still keep your job.  Sounds like a rather good racket to me.

Every time I see an advert for Bosch, I think it's James Nesbitt (who I suppose is now "of The Hobbit fame" rather than "of Cold Feet fame".)

Friday March 27, 2015:  Sebadoh.  I might just delay an out of town trip for this one.
If anyone else is going to be at the gig, be sure to say hi.  No guns or knives, please.
I'll be there. I'll buy you a beer if we can identify each other.

Will do.

I don't know about that.  Everything is accounted for in the diagrams on the county auditor's site.  Even the second bathroom is accounted for(the one where you could poop with one foot out the back door), which had to have been a later addition.  On the other hand, I'm sure they avoided permits wherever possible and their handiwork (whoever they are) really betrays they're lack of skill.

You may be giving me too much credit, Dan.  I was terrified of this whole thing, and still am to a degree since we still don't know the status of the septic system.  When we got started I was not at all sure we were going to be able to address the many things I hated about it.  In the end what talked us into it was location, the low auction price, and generous financial help from family and really not the house itself.  Plus, it looked like our best shot at getting out of our current abode which doesn't meet our needs and we're under water on.

We have had a few neighbors stop by to tell us what a showplace it was prior to the people that trashed it coming along  It's clear that in the 70s or 80s or whenever that must have been the place was probably clean, maintained and modern but I think it was just a lot of window dressing because nothing was done correctly.  It really does look great from the outside and now the inside will match... it will be nice to have something to be proud of.
