 Corrierino Reunion Campfire

Now that newcomers have ruined the forum and buried all of the good posts deep in the bowels of the forum, we should plan a day or week when everyone that we can contact comes back and posts and convinces all of the newcomers that they really are ruining everything and that the "back in my day" talk is true.

I won't attend, obviously, because that would be out of character. I will leave some chocolate on the ground for s'mores, though. It'll probably be a melted, mold-devoured mess by the time you all get here, but I tried.

What does it matter, anyway? Filmwise sent me a PM, I sent one back, and it is still unread. Oh the humanity!

Since I won't be here, I will take this opportunity to update my list for the Consensus:

Delete all prior entries, list only L'ami de mon amie (Rohmer, 1987)

Enjoy!

I think that cottonwoods are terrible trees to own.

depends, are you selling the cottonwood? I've never sold softwood myself though I've been told of the challenges.

(assuming you classify cottonwood as a softwood by dint of being poor quality hardwood)

We talkin' narrowleaf cottonwood, eastern cottonwood, swamp cottonwood, Fremont cottonwood or black cottonwood? Don't come at me with none of that balm-of-Gilead nonsense cuz that there is a hybrid.

You know what's good? Bacon. Bacon is pretty spiffy.

Never did hear of no cottonwood-smoked bacon, but I ain't seen everything.

I hear you. No one reads my pms either. :(


LEAVES, have you seen La leggenda di Kaspar Hauser? I have a feeling you would like it.

Also, no one's ruined anything, but I like the reunion idea. We should post the best of Corrierino here.

I'll start: ISOLATION

I read and respond to your pms!

Also, Isolation was a great thread. One of my favorites. :fresh:

It's a good re-read. Jedi's threads are so pretty!

Brrr, it's chilly in here. Someone throw some more Stephen Frears movies into the fire.

Oh, wow, yeah. I'd almost forgotten about that one! I learned a lot in that thread.

I always remember this place more for the online socialization rather than the discussion threads, and I was nervous about sharing my old Cowboy Bebop review thread in here because it's one of the few one-time things I remember here (naturally, since I was the one who made it, heh), so I was afraid it would come off as egotistical linking to one of my own projects, but I might as well do it at this point, so here goes nothing!: viewtopic.php?p=553446#p553446

88 Takes was a high point for sure. Collaberino was also a ton of fun.

I'm not really sure when the sea change happened. I only post in a handful of threads nowadays, and my two threads are basically blogs I continue for my own benefit (hoping someone else gets something out of it -- I also post the Learning to See photos concurrently on my Facebook page).

Jedi is the only forum member that I have contact with outside of the forum. He somehow tracked me down on Facebook and added me before he stopped posting. I wouldn't mind having additional forms of contact with other old-timers (still posting or not), if anyone is interested.
