    The Turin Horse (2011)

    It recalls the whipping of a horse in the Italian city Turin which is rumoured to have caused the mental breakdown of philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. The film is in black-and-white, shot in only 30 long takes by Tarr's regular cameraman Fred Kelemen,[2] and depicts the repetitive daily lives of the horse and its owner.

    But you left out much of Marty's interesting journey...he and some of his Good Fellas decided to make it a Casino road trip. They were transported by The Aviator but after They Departed they were diverted and had to make landings at Cape Fear and Shutter Island.

    Mononucleosis, the kissing disease, would spread like wildfire if introduced to a polygamous tennis community that uses monofilament polyester strings.

    Hollywood guacamole at a quality Mexican restaurant in L.A. surpasses the guacamole you are likely to find at any Parisian restaurant, but the popcorn with butter at a theatre may be a different matter.

    I forget, wasn't Jim Morrison rumoured to have been felled by a bad batch of guacamole at a Parisian restaurant...or was it heroin at a club?

    Morrison went down for the count as a result of a bad batch of mid-20's crisis...believing it's better to die young and good-looking before both of thos trains leave the station. I suffer from an early 60's crisis...I can't remember what that train even looked like, let alone when ot left the station!

    well I felt so sad and lonesome,

    Oui Sentinel, mon amie! Was kinda chilly for the most part. North and northwest Europe (Scandanavia, Ireland, UK, France & Germany) overall chilly this 'spring' while some places further inland (e.g. Moscow, Bucherest) had temps 25-30 degrees C warmer; weird. 850th anniversary of Notre Dame. Brought sister-in-law with us (she lost her significant other of many years a few months back and had always wanted to go there). As for the City of Lights, as always, the food was 'blah' and the architecture was 'meh' (wink) ... and of course the string wristbraclet-attaching dirtbags who hound the unsuspecting tourists on the approach up to Sacre Coeur Basilica are unfortunately still there...lol...

    Mikey, if you're ever going there in the near future, recommend this funky little joint called 'Spring'. Owned by a Chicago native who studied in Paris and owned a previous restaurant, this 'spring' version has a menu containing whatever the hell he brings back fresh that day from the market (guy's wife gave birth this year to an adoreable little girl named Willamina). Speaking of "Market", that Jacque George-owned joint of the same name is still going strong: (fushion, Asian-French, totally hot hotesses, and serves up a nifty "black plate" special)....we go there on the first night 'cause it's a nice after dinner walk back to the hotel. This year stayed at le Bristol ('midnight in paris' hotel) since the mrs. had enough of her 7-year-itch at Costes, and the Crillion where we stayed the past 3 years is closed for a couple of years--as with the Ritz in the Place Vendome--for a renovate (new Saudi gazzionaire oil prince owners or whatever). Speaking of which, right around the corner from the Bristol on night, I caught sight of a shiny, brand new black Chevy Camaro with 'Arabic' lettering on the license plate. The thing stuck out like a sore thumb...a Chevy Camaro?? LOL. Had the annual 'Sunday' picnic in the Tulleries. Since it was chiller on this particular Sunday, it was a shrewd more on 'moi's' part to pack an extra bottle of bubbly to go with the provisions (salmon, pates, artichokes, stuffed peppers, oil, cheese, mustards, corniches,artichokes, 'black jambon', etc.) from Fauchon on Saturday that is 'secured' overnight in the mini bar fridge...next day, grab fresh baguettes en route to the Tulleries for the eat fest. Sitting on chairs using a park bench for a table, with a champaigne-buzz watching the mrs. & sister having a good time 'girly-smoozing' .... even the overcast weather (with an occassional sun pop-out) couldn't make a dent on the "ah!" factor ... good to be back though ....

    As good as Parisian restaurants can be, there are few things nicer than shopping at the speciality markets and then having a picnic. For some reason, Paris is the one city where I really love doing this.
