Re: “La Sirenita

This is good. And well-priced. TheBradness notes that it's a "tijuana style taqueria." It is, I suppose... but like 60% of the mexican joints in Portland, they use yellow American cheese in their chile relleno. That is not authentic, and, frankly, (while I will still eat it) it is a poor chile relleno.

Also, I often get the feeling that the cooks are making fun of me in Spanish while I wait for my food. My grasp of Spanish is entirely centered around curse words - they say some, they laugh, and then they look at me and start laughing even harder. What's up with that?

Re: “It's Happening Tonight!

Try to stay on topic please.

You're right that "Clippers" and "good" still don't seem like two words that go together, despite their records these past many years. I wonder if the name "Clippers" is holding them back (or rather, holding us back). Maybe they should change their name to the Shears.

Funny how Paul Shafer didn't get any screen time in the 1986 performance.

Re: “The Road Goes Ever On

I agree with all this. It had some cool parts, but quite a few "dutiful" parts.

The conflict within the mountain felt a little strained to me (thorin going nuts), mostly because it was the ONLY conflict. In the book, the main conflict for the dwarves is that they're freaking hungry. When we came out the theatre, the first thing my friends said was, "how were they eating in there?" For the movie to be convincing, I think it's best to keep some of the realistic details like that.

Also, it looked like Dain was completely CGI, and his voice, and the things he said, sounded just like Fat Bastard.

Don't forget that Wilson is also over 6 feet tall and over 200 pounds.

Yeah, just get your US citizenship already! What are you waiting for? End of discussion.
