    Here, we're ending our second week of full containment. The kids are OK, we're doing school work in the morning and we play in the afternoon. Both are very patient. I'm paying attention to have a different rhythm during the week and during the weekend. Last week we both worked 50%, which was really challenging: we had a permanent guilty conscience of either being non reachable for colleagues and not being fully there for the kids. Since Monday I'm on technical leave, working only a few hours in the evening. It makes things much easier... I see us as very fortunate: we have a flat (large enough) to spend the at least 5 weeks without problems. We have enough food (everything is normal out there), a roof, enough games and enough to read. I am really hoping that all of us will come out of this ok.

    Hmmm, depends on the age of the kids/young adults. I can highly recommend the cartoon "Long way north" (2015) : In 1882, a young Russian aristocrat goes on an epic adventure to find out what happened to her grandfather and save her family's reputation. I saw it just a few weeks ago and it's captivating for young and somewhat older people
  3. And here's the poem by Emily Dickinson: After great pain, a formal feeling comes - The Nerves sit ceremonious, like tombs - The stiff Heart questions "was it He, that bore, And "Yesterday, or Centuries before"? The Feet, mechanical, go round - A Wooden way Of Ground, or Air, or Ought - Regardless grown, A Quartz contentment, like a stone - This is the Hour of Lead - Remembered, if outlived, As Freezing persons, recollect the snow - First - Chill - then stupor - then the letting go - https://owlcation.com/humanities/Analysis-of-Poem-After-Great-Pain-A-Former-Feeling-Comes-by-Emily-Dickinson
  4. Here's a long interview of the director (P. Facinelli), the producers, the score musician, Anne and TJ at Mammoth Film Festival:
  5. Another sequence from the movie with TJ is available here: *SPOILERS* https://bloody-disgusting.com/home-video/3609860/hunters-moon-clip-thomas-jane-discovers-bloody-remains-werewolf-attack-exclusive/

    These are all positive answers so far, I'm happy to know you're ok! And we're helping everyone by staying at home. Patience is a virtue.
  7. My pleasure! But please thank Tom, since I really didn't do anything here
  8. TJ IS CONFIRMED FOR AUGUST!!! Firstly: great news for you guys in the UK! I am so happy this event is postponed, not cancelled. Secondly for us outside of UK it means... let's start to plan I found the idea of sharing a rental apartment awesome.

    ... was wondering how you're doing @Nicole? It seems you chose a wise time to switch from catering to digital expertise. You can work from home and are less subject to cancellations, right? I also recall you mentioning a move in the spring. I'm crossing my fingers that being confined currently helps you to prepare the move. Same for you @Geoff ... it must be challenging to run a company right now. My thoughts are with you.
  10. Sounds good! I'll watch it as soon as I can. In the meantime there's a "trailer" out there showing just one scene with TJ: https://www.joblo.com/movie-trailers/hunters-moon-thomas-jane-owns-clip-2020 And the Première + Q&A is cancelled due to the corona pandemic
  11. *NO SPOILERS :-)* So I've finally read the book! It is unusual... but you've expected this I guess! The characters, the Buick and the various actions are so precisely described by S. King up to the slightest light beam and colour range that I have a very clear vision of what's going on here. I am impatient to see how the @wearerenegades vision will look like! On their "TJ birthday post", they mentioned the L.A. 3D space... letting me hope that TJ and co will regal us with a 3D version of the movie. I can really see how that would work and it would indeed bring so much! Crossing my fingers...
  12. Absolutely! Meeting you was a highlight last year. I might have mentioned it before: the chemistry was right from the start and I enjoy the electronic interactions we have until then. I really hope we'll meet again. The feeling I described did all take place before the Con.
  13. FedCon 2019: I remember vividly this feeling of sinking into quicksand when I read that Thomas was cancelled, the fear was immediately present as my feet found no ground to stand onto but it took a few minutes for the hurting to start. How disappointed I was... Of course life goes on and of course we all have our own busy lives to live. Meeting TJ is just the cherry on the cake. But still it hurts. I'm with you RAWarriors.

    Bravo chère Gail!! I remember only maybe 1 or 2 days where you didn't enlighten this forum (and my day) with your witty comments so that's amazing! Happy birthday!
  15. This is good news indeed. I might be available as well! Except if the said beer judging exam is postponed to that exact same date...
  16. Awwwww... this Con is postponed to August 22-23... I am so truly sorry for all of you, I would've loved to hear your tales and see you RAWarriors on the pics. Considering the current situation it's a logical decision but it hurts all the same. Meeting TJ is decidedly not an easy thing. But is there something beautiful that is easy to reach? I hope you'll all have time (and TJ as well) in August. In the meantime, take the lock down seriously... cases are increasing exponentially if social contacts are maintained.
  17. Mammoth Film Festival favourite was Hour of Lead: https://filmdaily.co/news/mammoth-film-festival-winners/ Well done to all! Can't wait to see it.
  18. I like how you're a fan to the very tip of your fingernails! Oh that was interesting! The first time he glitched and shouted it really took me by surprise and I was sitting on the edge of the couch, very awake.
  19. I'm still completely hooked to the series Nicole also mentioned something cool would happen in S5. I believe "when the shit gets real" was her expression, or was it yours ? so I have hope and I have TJ as a director to look forward to. I also bought Nemesis Game by the way, so that (by December), I'll be ahead of the series and will be able to follow the plot this time!
  20. Here's another short interview (around 2 minutes after the start) of The Psychology and The Thrill
  21. Well it will take some time because I'm reading From a Buick 8 currently :-) and I'm not a fast reading person...
  22. Oh no! Another dying Miller that will turn me upside down ... can't wait to read that.
  23. *** Expanse S4 SPOILERS *** I threw myself full of excitement into S4 and saw it even twice (due to my husband being away and needing to catch up... ;-) All in all I had that feeling that the series was "made too short". I'm not speaking about the quality of the images or the sets, but about the amount of information the series contains. In a strange way (bear with me please, I'm that kid ) it reminded my of Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban: the book was well written and full of details. But the movie has compressed all the story into 2 hours, where they should have used 4 hours. So for people who hadn't read the book, it was jumping back and forth, all making no sense. Here I had a similar feeling: strange stuff happens on this planet. That's OK, it's the reason why I watch the show. But the sequence of events wasn't making any sense at all. The planet gets hot spots, the "towers" open and close, move around, then there's a tsunami, suddenly there are killer snails (I know I know... ), then the green goo... just like that ? The problem with magic and science-fiction is that if we're not offered an illusion of an "explanation", then it really doesn't make sense at all. I expect that IF the series had 3 or 4 more episodes, along with MUCH MORE of Miller, I might have understood something. Apparently he's been busy switching flips :-) but we see nothing of his search and trials. So I'm eager to read the book and hope I'll understand more. Stuff I liked very much: - the "main characters" were on a planet for a change, this is a good idea - the Rocinante landing on Ilus looks STUNNING - Yes Al. you're right, the introduction of Marco was really neat - the ending of Ashford still gives me goosebumps On the other hand I was stupefied by Bobbie's arc. It was even more unbelievable than what's happening on Ilus because there was no "magic" involved. I simply didn't buy the psychology here. She was a marine for crissake. She goes all the way to a shitty job because she believes in the cause. And then "all of a sudden" she changes her mind? At first I thought she was accepting the "job" in order to better chase bandits
