and now for something different

Hello kids! I [the infamous boyfriend] have finally made it back (I'm the sort of boy who gets twitchy if left outside of Manhattan for too long - and when the lovely airport folk tell me all flights returning to NYC have been cancelled, well, it's not pretty. But that's another story).
So now as I'm sitting here at my desk trying to catch up with excitement I missed during my foray into the arctic midwest, I stumble across this gem: The line-up for the 2006 Whitney Biennial has been announced!! I know you're all as excited as I am to see what kind of an exciting, chaotic mess they fill the Beuer Bunker on Madison with this year. You've probably already analyzed it and processed it into handy lists and charts. Right? Hmm.. I sense I'm losing you. Okay. How about this - there are movies! Yep, movies! Including Francesco Vezzoli's Trailer for a Remake of Gore Vidal's 'Caligula', which was shown earlier this year at the Venice Biennale and stars Benicio del Toro, Helen Mirren, Milla Jololavich, Mr. Vidal himself (narrating), and finally, none other than America's most beloved crack-whore train wreck, Courtney Love.
Now come on, just try and tell me this doesn't make you want to forsake yet another trek to the cineplex for a nice stimulating afternoon at the art museum!

Nathaniel, you missed God's birthday!

Hope you had fun in Michigan (?)

Excited for NBR tomorrow.

Brokeback all the way, baby.

Welcome Back! Well, sort of.

And, any movie with Courtney Love piques my interest immediately. Not to mention it also has del Toro and Mirren and co.

@The Boyfriend: Your cameos here are always delicious, à la Maggie Cheung in 2046 or similar. Loving your entry. Feeling bad about your air-drama. And—I know you'll be shocked—I knew nothing about anything you just told us about...but I will figure out a way to turn it into a list. Thanks for keeping us all well-rounded! :)

Yeah, I thought you didn't sound quite like Nathaniel, but also not quite like Joe Reid. I should pay more attention to who I'm reading.

The Boyfriend, that was the most maddening post in the history of "The Film Experience". I didn't know what you were talking about but I thought it was great. Your cameos are indeed delicious.
