I shan't say cliched "Well played" if it's OK with you. Tongue

Is there film which you draw parallels with the other, different film?

Still, who you'd be in the main list?

Is there any film you took wisdom? Film which taught lesson perhaps?

Eh, can't really say I can think of any movies that I've really taken wisdom from to be honest.   I look to movies more for entertainment rather than for life lessons.   

The main characters in Wizard of Oz?   Right now, I feel like the Scarecrow, because I can't think of one.

It's difficult to imagine lego constructor-made anything to be interesting to see.

Fun time question - who would you choose being similar to you by character in "Wizard Of Oz"? Scarecrow, Tinman, Lion, Wizard, Toto?

I thought that too, until I saw The Lego Movie a few years ago.   I was surprised how much I enjoyed it.   

Living in Baltimore, I feel like one of the muchkins, waiting for a savior to drop out of the sky and get rid of the wickedness in this city.

Thanks. American accents is subject I'm as Americana fan interested in. Didn't see that film "Fargo", going by description, it's dull. I'm glad to read I'm right about minnesotan accent being neutral. My hearing is fine then.

I read about New York accent being funny but didn't know it borders with absurd. Erl? Zink?

Don't French immigrants live in New Orleans? Could've sworn I read there's many French speakers AND Americans who, living with French, can speak this language as well. Kinda adapted it iirc. What can you say, Liz, about it?

Debates in the Internet boards about which is homeland - place you're born or place you moved to & settled? It's divided. As this/ that compare, this group says homeland is place you're born regardless if you moved to different place just after birth or at the very young age when you don't rmbr anything with clarity. That group says homeland is place you lived many yrs, you're used to it.
Case in point - Al's born in Ohio town but considers California his land. What do you think, people?

Reading past threads in various subboards I see people who never before used cursive wrt album titles, weirdly started to do exactly that. F.ex. c-man, Emdeeh, feelsflow when used to post here & few pretty popular posters. This "shift" phenomenon really puzzles. There must be plausible explanation to it. If they got used to just typing the title, why now they make it look neat, as in like it "should" be? It's just message board, why copy what different posters use? It doesn't make sense.

Discovered I dislike many words beginning with d, p, f, v, y, q, h, n.

It's funny that big things seem to be THE vulnerable - Titanic, towers, dinosaurs. They didn't get to survive. & little things stay. Then again, there wouldn't be chaos theory if it went strictly exclusively by THAT rule. It can be anything.

"Strawberry Fields Forever" is better title than song. Same can be applied to many filler psychedelic songs. Psychedelia seems to be the music styling which is very difficult to make good. To get to good, really good psychedelic song, you must listen to thousand fillers.

I just read that unfortunately TJW had to cancel his australian tour because of back problems.

Interview with Tony Joe White

Warren interviews Tony Joe White about his big hit songs ("Polk Salad Annie" and "Rainy Night In Georgia") as well as his new album "Badmouthin'."

Here's more from the new album:

Boom, boom

Cool town woman

Back to accents.
Native New Orleanians don't speak with a French accent. I've noticed 2 different accents here. The uptown crowd has an almost Southern accent. They pronounce our city "Noo Oryeeanz".
We downtowners have variations on what is close to "Brooklynese", a New York accent. They pronounce the city "Noo Awlins". In the extreme, words with "oi" are pronounced "er." Thus, erl , terlet, etc instead of oil or toilet. Or "wrench your hands in the zink" - rinse your hands in the sink.
The theory about our accent is that it's due to the large number of Irish and Italian immigrants who came here.

There are other accents in Louisiana. In North and South (rural areas) there are different types of Southern accents. In South central and southwest Louisiana one can hear the Cajun accent.

Accents: Minnesota is relatively neutral, but especially in rural areas or among older people there is something, a kind of exaggeration and perversion of certain vowels. Itís hard to explain but Iíll try to spell out.

Cute instead of kyoot might be kyoo-ut.

A in many words is almost abrasive, more like the a in cat than the ah it is sometimes properly meant to be. Also sometimes made into two syllables like above with ďcute.Ē

There is also something about the letter o that is hard to explain. Iíd say it is more closed-mouth, like not fully pronounced, stilted, which makes it less of oh and more like a combined, fast oooh and uh. (Sorry I canít explain that.)

I believe it comes from lingering Scandinavian and German accents that evolved.

The movie Fargo is meant to portray it but as NOla BB Fan said of Louisiana accents, Minnesotans donít think it sounds accurate. (It is a good caricature of it though.)

To answer some questions:
There aren't the restrictions in the US concerning turning on the heat as there are in some other countries. If I wanted to I could put it on in the summer. And I can set it to whatever temperature I want. Of course, since you are using more power, you will have a higher bill to pay.

Don't think I've had mushroom truffles. Have had chocolate truffles and they were good.

Creative writing classes are available. I know people who are into writing fiction or poetry. They meet up with other writers to show their work and receive (hopefully) constructive criticism and encouragement.

I love the sea but wouldn't like to live by there . Too many hurricanes :-(

I'll come back later about accents. Let's just say that we New Orleanians cringe when we watch TV shows or movies set in our city.
