Why do you ask? Just interested. Okay. I read according to plan. The usual thing this time. Which was? Occasionally, it’s something different. Would you like to know what that was as well?…Well, let’s me start from the beginning. What I am reading….He started telling her about it.

I have been seriously following film since when I was a teenager and I like looking back at what was on offer. They call it nostalgia, but I tend to think of it as joy. I have two reasons for reading old film books. One, is to be informed of past films I have missed, or films I would like to more about, or just find new titles to explore. Two, is to choose which films to see. They might be in the past, but I enjoy recovering the old and watching some of them. In terms of the present, I am an avid follower of what is released. At the present time, this is restricted to what is released on the internet. I must admit I prefer following what comes to theatres so haven’t been that diligent in swatting up on what films are on Netflix and Amazon. Some call this Old School–but I don’t have much interest in films that haven’t had a big screen release. As well, I am uncomfortable with the thought that movies that can be played on computer screens can be nominated for Oscars. I guess I am Old School.
Been pouring over two movie books. A simple lasting ‘word’ or image sticks in my brain from each piece, the important one thing I need to know; a plethora of words leaves me with one ‘word’ and there is order.
