Being good at OT is like being good at cheese straightening. It pays nothing and nobody wanted it in the first place.

I dunno. A really good cheese straightener is probably pretty hard to find. I think you have to be licensed in most countries.

Yeah, me too. If that tool is what northern barbarians use, I don't want anything to do with any northern barbarians. smile.gif

In case anyone is interested, Jeff Goldblum actually is in Annie Hall in a bit role. He's a party guest at Tony Lacey's (Paul Simon) pad in LA. He's on the phone. His line?

"Hello? I forgot my mantra."

The writing reflects Woody Allen's contempt for the phoniness and vapidity of LA.

I'm not so sure about the older generation.

This is a great debate and one that probably deserves it's own thread. I was born in 1980 and hold a special place in my heart for "traditional movies." For instance, the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre is my favorite horror movie w/ Evil Dead coming in a close second. The latter being the holy grail for "traditional" special effects in horror IMHO.

Now on to CGI and staying on topic with Oblivion. I've made comments to friends to the effect that this is one of the bests sci-fi movies of the past decade. While that may be a stretch to some, I love it's simplicity while still attaining complexity. I love the aircraft. I love the sky pad. I love this movie. It will hold up just fine. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The thought of an alien species pillaging our salt water still messes with my head...bleeding our precious Earth dry. AWESOME Sci-fi right there.
I've seen it three times and think I may purchase it on blu ray. Nuff said.

I agree. Superman 4 the quest for peace is still a great movie in my mind. Even with the strings and breathing in space

It's used to cut fine slices of cheese, from a block of cheese.
It's called "osthyvel" = cheese slicer smile.gif

In Sweden, do people understand the term "cut the cheese" the same way as we do here in America? biggrin.gif

My simple answer is no. We have other way of describing the release of gas. wink.gif

Cut the cheese is slicing cheese with the classic predator medkit.

I ain't no highfalutin' cheese snob. Velveeta is God's gift to grilled cheese sandwich lovers. Try frying them with a slice of bologna, not too thick, don't want to overpower that creamy, gooey goodness. Oh my. My, oh my.

To the kitchen Tonto, stat!

Someone else here has had the velvety log experience? I'm not the only old fart! biggrin.gif

Try sprinkling a little manchego on top of your slice of velveteen next time. I also toast the inside part of the bread first before buttering and grilling the outside. Extra crispy and extra cheesy.

Side of tomato bisque stat!

There's just something about Velveeta and bologna. They complement each other in a way that's indescribable to those unfamiliar with the beautiful pan-music they create together. You could say they go together like chocolate & peanut butter, bacon & eggs, Nugent & crazy. Why, Velveeta could even say to bologna: "You complete me." Sometimes, on a starry night, I can almost hear 'em down there in the fridge, imploring me to break out the skillet and get down to bidness. It's magical.

Hey, I don't make the rules. Some things just is.

Haven't even had my morning coffee and here I am dreaming about lunch. Curse you Velveeta and your golden gooeyness. I'm blaming Scientology.
