    It's weird finding old boxes from other generations, isn't it? My grandfather died when I was very young and I only remember him through pictures. But they are such treasures.

    They are. The only bad part is when there is nobody around any more to explain some of them to you.....

    So true. I'm in that position right now. I only have one elderly (but she's all there and very active) great aunt to tell me about that side of the family. I keep meaning to go see her (she has tons of photos of my grandfather, her brother), but invariably something always comes up and I know I'm going to get a phone call one day and hate myself for it. She's a snowbird too, so it makes it even harder.

    Where on earth are you storing all these high-res pictures? There must be a TONS of gigs worth.

    I'm just storing them on removable drives. The original photos are only around 300-400 dpi grade shots, anyway. And I'm selective about what I store, so, it's not taking up as much space as my usual digital shots. However, I'm only through with Box 1 of 7 so far.......

    Oh, gosh ... good luck, Mo. It'll be worth it, for sure, but it's going to take forever.

    Big Eyes ... another instant streaming movie .... if you've seen the trailers, you can easily tell the plot. A husband takes credit for his wife's waif AKA Big Eyes paintings until she's had enough. It takes her FOREVER to get enough. Kinda dragged for me, but was watchable. This is a true story, so I already knew the ending before watching it, but I won't spoil it here.

    The last movie I saw was “The Equalizer” starring Denzel Washington. The movie was awesome, Denzel did a good job of playing a vigilante. How I wish there were more equalizer nowadays. Washington has never been more bad ass.

    Not so much a movie, but a reality doco called "Revisit the Loud Family" it is a 2 hr edited version from the 1973 PBS reality show called "An American Family". It was fascinating.

    I remember that, but this is usually what I think of when I heard "Loud Family" - one of my favorite SNL skits (Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, John Belushi, and Carrie Fisher).

    Nebraska- Bruce Dern, Will Forte and June Squibb. Loved it, and June was brilliant and hilarious. Dern was by turns hilarious and heartbreaking.

    Witchboard (1986)

    80s b movie, supposedly scary but actually funny due to ridiculous effects and Tawny Kitaen's "acting" Still, she's very hot in it and the film itself was actually entertaining.

    Due to life events beyond my control, I've been *searching* for movies that will keep my interest, and have been getting mixed results. Some I've been pleasantly surprised about, some are older movies, but ones that were highly acclaimed in their day ... but not so much anymore. Which brings me to ...

    Wall Street ... I started watching the sequel and about five minutes in realized I'd never seen the original, so I went back and tried so hard to get through that movie. I know a lot of people liked it, but it just doesn't cut it today (which is odd because there are movies from my very young youth that are timeless, like The Godfather, and ones from my older youth but never watched until I was an adult like Casino and Goodfellas ... you could (and I have) watch these movies on a constant loop and not be bored). I couldn't stand Charlie Sheen and how every time he delivered a line had to uhn ... push his face forward as if to punctuate the line. I just didn't like the movie at all. It may have been relevant in its day but with so many insider trading scandals over the years and that we're so immune to it today, that fact makes it seem like an out of date, boring movie (which it is). It makes me not want to watch the sequel.

    And a question .... it's hard for me to follow TV series throughout their life span. There's only been a few that I've watched from beginning to end ... the only ones that come to mind are Six Feet Under, True Blood and Downton Abbey (which is still running, but still has me yearning for more). I'm sure there are others, but that's all I can think of right now. I know tons of people love Dexter, and that show is right up my alley, but I went out and bought the first two seasons and couldn't even get through the first two shows of the first season. I love CSI: Vegas, but the cast changes over the years have made it less interesting (you get invested in these characters and then bam, they're killed off or sent away to where ever. My favorite character on that show is George Eads (Nick Stokes) but they have simply wasted his talent and throw him in the background all the time ... now, after saying forever that he'd be in it to the end (he's the only original main cast member left), he's leaving after this season (he's had a few skirmishes with production, and I think that's the reason for a lot less scenes and his early departure). I haven't been watching it anyway for years (for same reasons). I need some recommendations on some TV series I can get into, based on what I usually go for. I MISS TRUE BLOOD!!! I usually am not a reality TV fan ... but I do watch Dance Moms. Anybody with similar tastes have any recs for me?
