Maybe *you* got misery. I ain't got misery. Saying "Agree, this is best thread ever" would do. Thing is, I hate it when smb. starts reviving the other threads (like Quotes), *the same day* when I'd written interesting things to discuss. Like, couldn't pick diff. time? Who cares what dull youtubers say anyway, with unfunny posts? I'd written list "stupid cat phrases" that smb. would chime in, that the list will gain attention! But when smb. starts posting in bad timing in diff. threads, it gets Cats' newest post invisible, people wouldn't see it since the other thread's now at the top. See? I'd like Cats thread to succeed. & Movies thread - 2 cool threads. In fact, any thread I chime in.
^ Boy, isn't it beautifully stated. 3D Apt explanation.

Strange that the best ever thread - FACT - doesn't get replies. Roll Eyes

Reading few infos about CBD oil didn't paint good pic. Despite "useful", listing "here's reasons". Pets being better due to it looks like placebo.

Stupid cat phrases to this Smiler would be:
- make biscuits Roll Eyes
- silly goose (aka "tender" way to dub playful cat)
- dilly/ jelly beans
- sploot
- kitty cat (it's either...or)
- indoor cat (cheesy - say you got cat, without schfancy schmaltz addish)
- few gobbledygook else

Say folks, you gotta post about Chaplin showings here. Youtube clips thread is about youtube clips duh.

Now. Next film - "Pigskin Parade". Starrs THE best comedienne in any decade Patsy Kelly. 3D 3D 3D ANY film with Patsy's bound to be funny. 10/10.

I chimed in to ask question, can't you see? Is there any crime in merely asking who's CB?

Fine then. Here coolicious song for QAD, YZ, LC, NI, EW & KT. Sweetest peeps. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=sWxkv3fPsag

Seen weird horror film "Mirrors" (1978) about pair spending honeymoon of kinds in Louisiana. Stayed in hotel. In French Quarter. In few minutes, they join bus tour around city, visit gallery, voodoo queen Marie Laveau's tomb in which girl guide says if you scratch the "x" to it, Marie will grant wish. In gallery they see that lady's portrait, then daughter Marie Laveau II's & guide says the artist, to make people think they're related, painted their eyes shiny distinct black. 2 things didn't make sense - half the film's about main girl trying new perfume she'd been advised to get by local perfume maker. She applied it everytime before going to sleep (weird habit, if you ask, not economical given it's in such tiny teeny bottle) & next thing she dreamt nightmares with Marie Laveau laughing with evil laughter in black dress with some chain/necklace with round thing in the middle. What's perfume got to do with voodoo? Next - main girl jokingly stated is there such big mirror number in any place than New Orleans. Where's the link between mirrors & that lady in black? Why when girl dreams she looks at mirror but doesn't see her reflection, instead it's Marie? Why she appears & laughs there? I didn't get the end camera zooming full screen gradually to main girl's face looking at you kinda crazy semi-smiling. Did she get possessed or what? Btw, the cast is very obscure except the girl is Kitty Winn, she may or may not be familiar to people who'd seen "Exorcist" trilogy, albeit she didn't get big screen time. Maybe smb. rmbr her. Well, music in "Mirrors" did doll up the film, gave needful effect to it. Again, full film's in youtube in case curious.

Yes, figured you don't stay there. Hence question. I'd read people can't live single in big houses. Say they hate it. Living in short distance with fam is fine decision. House will be cleaned & sold then. Make sure cats travel safely to new house. They're too good.

Haven't forgotten Zasu Pitts. I haven't been able to sit down and concentrate on a movie. Tried to watch a movie I had taped and kept falling asleep, so gave up.
Agree, got the same snooze reaction trying to see Chaplin films. I find his humor very unfunny. & dramatic skills mediocre at best. Well stated. Gave up indeed ha. Thanks to answer.
12  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: What are you watching now?/Favourite Movie of the Moment on: October 16, 2019, 05:22:58 AM
Surely silents fans musta hear about Zasu Pitts. Am seeing "Nightmare" (1964) hammer film right now. Really like the main girl. Everybody else is meh. Jolly good film. 9.5/10.
13  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: What are you watching now?/Favourite Movie of the Moment on: October 16, 2019, 03:47:49 AM
Hm, people in YouT clips mention Chaplin yet nobody seen Zasu Pitts in silents? She's been dubbed very successful in it. Weeeeiird. She's better than Chaplin anyway.

Any-anyhoo. Despite being Hitch fan, didn't check to date few films. To fill in gaps, began with "Trouble With Harry" (1955). Rare case when youtube got the full film in really good video quality (check initial link in results, next link ain't good).

Highlights: pretty fall landscape, yellow leaves galore,nice lanes, paths, neat fresh streets, very Technicolor; Edmund Gwenn, 2 Mildreds Dunnock & Natwick (the latter strangely got British accent despite being American AND film takes place in U.S.).

Disadvantages: John Forsythe (terrible acting skills, hilariously bad voice, with metallic/ reedy patterns), Shirley MacLaine (shock maybe but I can't stand Shirley, don't think good about her acting talent either, her "cuteness" especially in this debut film, she's 20 here, made me cringe); Jerry Mathers (everybody screams "Beaver" except I, since I ain't crazy about that apparently uber-popular series. Meaning I didn't recognize the boy really, to me it's just boy, read: mediocre at best child actor playing very annoying kid telling pure drivel); stupid trick with door in closet moving as if smb.'s hidden in it; dull shenanigans with poor guy's bod wasting film's length at it, shoulda used film's good portion to cool events; cheesy "double bed" joke being whispered secretly to various ears till finally we viewers can hear what Forsythe's character whispered to millionaire's ear. Yep, cheesy. 2/10.

2 NBBF: Which now human do you live? Many who did lose people dislike to live without the other human, wish to chat with smb. except pets. Do you plan beginning boarding house since there's many empty rooms? Many start profit when they live in big house. Did you place the ad?
15  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Cats on: October 14, 2019, 05:19:14 AM
Gee, that is bad news. I give you sympathies & good vibes to the family in the aftermath. Is cancer hereditary illness? Did it plague family member in the past?

Yes, cats great to live with. & pet.

Subscribed to cat page recently - "Josephine Quirky Cat". Master's name's Diane. She lives in Canada & ljnked to blog with similar title. It's about cat with mood changes, she's not very friendly, difficult cat, thus she's "quirky cat". She tells about what that's like to live with such cat, very interesting to read. She tells whilst it isn't picnic to live with Josephine, she CAN be good, playful & such. It's nice to see Diane didn't give up, didn't give away cat to shelter. Many people with difficult cats, when they realize it, quickly do precisely it - give cats back. It's really maddening to read such cases.
16  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: What are you watching now?/Favourite Movie of the Moment on: October 13, 2019, 10:22:22 PM
I will not see "Duel?". Thanks to warn it starrs Dennis Hopper - can't stand films with him.

Seen 8 remaining Zasu Pitts-Todd shorts. To compare Pitts' & Gish's faces (joyful pastime to compare lookalikes, it's fun don't deny folks), seen Lillian's 30s films with voices - "One Romantic Night", "His Double Life" (full films youtubed). Yep, they look like sisters - obviously I'm right. It being said, Gish's delicate face is few levels above Pitts' but Pitts got bigger eyes yet she isn't graceful as Gish when she walks. Gish got poise & think she's little bit thinner but, yep, they're sisters Twix.

Edit: Will mention Pitts-Todd-Kelly-Gish many times till smb. catches with jolly interesting questions in previous page. Am very curious about what people think about any subject asked. Like to compare people's answers - very much, even extremely.

Welp. Moving to next. Seen today "Something Evil", TV 1972 film made by who? Steven Spielberg. Cast: Sandy Dennis, Darren McGavin (really weird pairing), Ralph Bellamy. Title is right - sth.'s evil. Question - what precisely? It funnily isn't dull film despite clueless plot. But, coulda benefitted if given at the jolly least few frightful scenes. It simply isn't scary (hello? It says "horror"). 6.5/10.

Jeff shouldn't waste time reading BBs forums - should instead improve the abysmal falsetto.
19  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: What are you watching now?/Favourite Movie of the Moment on: October 11, 2019, 09:14:07 AM
To piggyback at previous, check shorts in youtube if never seen (which is funny since there's many archaic film fans):
Pitts-Todd
"Strictly Unreliable"
"Asleep In The Feet"
"The Bargain Of The Century"
"Alum & Eve"
 "Red Noses" due to peculiarly advanced treatments - in 1930s. Did spa really exist back then? Well, there's Ms. Marple book that mentions Ms. Blacklock being in "spa hotel" with Ms. Bunner. Yet, in "Red Noses" girls run with different speeds in long moving thin line akin to trademill/ escalator. Thelma gets seated in stool which moves. Mechanical animal Pitts gets seated, it starts riding. Varied tough massage methods.

Kelly-Todd
Each is comedy gold. Patsy's very funny. Thelma's good too with her than she is with Pitts.

Still curious re: Gish-Pitts. Did anybody compare who's better silent actress? It's fun to do, y'know. Smb. with jolly difficult name regarded Zasu Pitts his favorite actress & "best tragedienne". This despite the fact he worked with Gish too. Then there *gotta* be sth. special about Pitts. It piqued the interest, intrigued beyond. Usually, it's Gish who gets praised, pioneer actress who invented acting techniques thespians use today - Gish's Imdb says it. But she really got praised, seen clips about it. Pitts I found about just few days back. Meaning she's obscure. Yet, they say she could do comedy & tragedy EQUALLY SKILLFULLY. Whilst Gish played mainly in serious films. Which tells that Pitts is versatile. But they really look like sisters. Heck, Dorothy Gish doesn't look as similar to Lillian as Zasu. Sure, sisters/ sibs may look different but still fabulous resemblance betwixt Gish & Pitts. Thin lips, downbeat eyes, delicately shaped face.

Youtube got full film "The Uncanny" (1977) with ailurophobe Peter Cushing & cat fan Ray Milland (he indeed may REALLY like cats since he starred few decades back in "Rhubarb", film about sports team & titular cat being their luck pet. I posted it previously). 3 cat tales in single film. The killer cats! 3D It's hilarious at times, the way cats attack by cutely jumping at people, hahaha! Sweeties. :D Then in cat tale 3 there's really calculating & sly cat - guy (Donald Pleasence) & his mistress talentless actress poisoned milk, put traps with fish & such to get rid of cat. But he sits there without touching food. To revenge  Evil, cat gets to studio, kills them both by basically doing nothing but getting in the way & startling. Purrfect! Here's link: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7CzDrmEy4YY

It bookends with beautiful limericks:

"He leaps and lightly
Walks upon sleep, his mind on the moon.
Nightly over the round world of men,
Over the roofs go his eyes and outcry."

(Ted Hughes)

"And gaze into your gazing eyes
And wonder in a demi-dream
What mystery it is that lies
Behind those slits that glare and gleam."

(Giles Lytton Strachey)

Ain't it apt description towards feline race? I'd say *jolly* apt. Hit the nail.
1st limerick starts intro credits set to tip-toeing light pawsteps-like mystic suspenseful macabre music which to these ears really fits film's subject - evil stereotypes about cats & superstitions (speaking about, I read in FB such really weird thing that people hesitate to adopt *black* cats in shelters, that they still got bad rep. Poor darlings end up living in shelters years & years, then when they're senior do smb. adopt them. Stupid & brutal).
Film intro, besides such cool music, starts with beautiful cat paintings, in kinda Louis Wain style (yet not really). Check it out, film is in pretty good video quality, not too blurred as many youtube films.

Edit: Pay attention that either people who stand by or against cats here look kinda like cats. I, being cats' admirer, catch it easily when smb.'s got feline features. Ray Milland's eyes & demeanor really resemble cat's. & 1st tale starrs my fave British/ general beauty Joan Greenwood - marvellous thespian with refined British English speech. Theatrical yet fitting character she plays. She's beautiful due to cat-like elegance. She can be likened to cat in many ways, sly smile with sly eyes, beguiling & deceitful.
NBBF mentioned b4 she enjoys British accents, 2 main characters will be feast to her ears. Ditto 1st tale, "London 1912" with mentioned actress.

Been viewing 1930s short films - previously mentioned Patsy Kelly-Thelma Todd duet, this time Zasu Pitts-Todd shorts. Whilst Pitts isn't good as Patsy who is great comedienne, she did tardy girl schtick with bizarreness well. Did anybody see? Choose - Pitts-Todd? Kelly-Todd? Besides, did anybody catch that Pitts looks like Lillian Gish? Read Pitts began in silents, even featured with Gish in single film.
22  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Cats on: October 10, 2019, 04:05:35 PM
Jackson Galaxy must live in Catland. I shall get him tickets to it.

Each facebook cat page mentions these cat foods - "Chewy" & "Weruva". They state they're very nutritional, got many digest-sensitive options AND emphasize each brand provides the best customer service. Do you feed cats with it? If yes, agree with each point?

I didn't even *hear* these food names, cat foods advertised here - "Whiskas", "Friskies", "Darling", "Royal Canin", "Purina", "Kitekat".

Recent fave cat pic - family went kayaking, took cat with, snapped pics in which cat sits/ looks in different sides, f.ex. stares at river in trance, dressed cutely with what looks like dark-blue vest. D'aww! I like checking cat profile, what lovely nose (saying it "lyavly n'awz") with cute mouth ("meowff").
23  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Cats on: October 07, 2019, 07:48:07 PM
Actually, school marching band question is general question. I'd seen in many-many-many films where this & that U.S. state school got marching band to which various pupils joined. I wished to know if it's true or not. Hence the question "Is it requirement...?", "Is it exception...?". You state at school you went band didn't exist. Is it rare when it's like that? I meant not just Louisiana but *generally U.S.*.

Jackson Galaxy is human?? Puzzled. Ahhh! Again, FB post I quoted by the lady previously:
"Lady read positive reviews towards special device in Amazon - "the Jackson Galaxy bully remedy set", trio set which includes "self-esteem bottle she needs to help her". Try to figure what this even looks like/ entails."
Pay attention she said "bully remedy *set*". & "self-esteem bottle".

Then you said Jackson Galaxy helps "bad" cats. It read like you used that JG bully remedy set, just like the lady, i.e. you're familiar with it when looking to help your cats. That's when I asked what it looks like. I'd like to know exactly what this JG bully set is. I can't believe all this time JG been human. But why would she call it "bully remedy set", keyword "set", about which she read positive Amazon reviews?

Today I found abbreviation POTP. Some cat in human voice (via their human parent, obviously, but such sweet thing when cat "talks" :D ) in FB said he needs POTP today. I found in comments to the post it means "power of the paw", cats use it as good wishes to them by FB followers, cat fans. Did you know it?
24  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Cats on: October 07, 2019, 09:57:49 AM
Is it requirement that school gets marching band? Is it exception to rule when school didn't get marching band to represent school in inter-school competition? Is it by definition that school in U.S. starts it?

I meant - what does Jackson Galaxy look like? As I stated, the FB lady mentioned there being bottle. There is many things in it than just bottle. Question's - what's it?

Ta. Did intend to ask the ava image query. Yet you answered 1st.

Do you buy cats Halloween fancy garments?
