I'll be traveling to Seattle a good bit in the coming months - it'd be nice to get the PNW winos together sometime in the near future.

Mishy, I don't think SeaQ wants your password. Unlike you, he writes his own material.


Just one more sip.

Thanks for ressurecting this VM, I had forgotten all about it (although I'm not certain I was even here when it was initially written).

Personally, I think the casting should be:

Board-O: Gene Hackman
Jones: Daniel Day Lewis
Mishy: Holly Hunter

Personally, I'm expecting Seaquam to go back and provide us with "Mishy and Jones are Dead" (Scene opens with the flipping of a coin...) or something of that nature...you know, Stoppard-esque.

Or else he could write, "The Importance of Being Pyang"

Who is Mishy and who is JonesMalts#1? Even if they had some influence around here in the past, their presence in the forthcoming play is irrelevant... unless Seaquam chooses to use their portraits as props in the misenscene. I would not mind seeing a mildly militaristic parade as an opening scene, with characters marching, feet out of sinck, saluting the portraits with one of their fingers extended...


Personally, I'd prefer a play about cowboys, wine bars and samurais, set in El Paso in 2025. Can you dig it?

I'd pick Roseanne instead of Holly Hunter.

So Seaquam,

If you had to recast this masterpeice for 2005 who would you use in place of Mishy and Jones? I think Bella would be a shoe in but... ya never know.

Among your many wonderful attributes, bman, is your ceaseless optimism! Big Grin

And what a surprise to see this thread resurrected again. "It's not dead... it's sleepin'!" Smile

I remember another Seaquam gem where he posted snippets from many members.

I seem to recall his quote of good old GA mentioning that someone should be kicked in the face! Cool

If I could remember the title, I'd drag it up. Another good read and a piece of forum history.

Quite so, Rothko. It is an elegant reminder of a more civilized time. In comparison, blasters are crude, inaccurate and loud affairs.

I believe you are refering to THIS post, GA. I'd forgotten about that. Looking at the date, it was 3½ years ago, a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, in cyberspace terms.

I have no idea what prompted me to post that in the "Dining and Cooking" forum, but for some reason it seemed to make sense way back then. It sure doesn't now.

At the last meeting of the Forumites Secret Society I moved a motion (graciously seconded by Serge Birbrair) to lower the threshhold to 500 posts. So you're good. Smile

Serge has since recanted, and feels that is should be 1000 posts or more.
