    NxNW is fantastic.

    My three favorite Hitchcock-heavy films are Vertigo (just a trip), Psycho (one of the best antiheroes), and Strangers on a Train (that carousel scene, oh man!).

    Shadow of a Doubt
    is pretty awesome, too, and I have a soft spot for the twisted, fucked up, and (unintentionally?) hilarious film that is Rope.
    Have you seen I, CONFESS?
    Yes, it's a very uneven film, similar to Rope in that way, but it doesn't provide the sick chuckles that Rope does -- at least not for me. Granted I haven't seen it for more than 20 years, but I never felt that it was one that merited rewatching.

    And not everyone can use their parents' streaming subscriptions to watch films. Nobody who matters is going to wind up destitute from a person choosing to watch a 70-year-old film on YouTube. Hitchcock ain't losing any sleep over it; he's dead. And good riddance! He was a major dick!

    All of his films likely will be public domain in the US in due time.
    Nobody would go broke from me downloading all Pearl Jam albums instead of buying them either. Nobody would really care if I shoplift stuff from Walmart. It's a moot point. 

    Rope is nice, but I never really liked the fact that they do have regular cuts in the film. Weird of Hitchock not going all the way, with him going 99,9% all the way.

    I'm gonna rewatch I, Confess. Might have been ten years since I saw it... maybe even longer. But I remember really liking M. Clift in it, and thought the premiss was brilliant.

    She's gonna run some winter run down there out in nowhere and asked for company. 

    And they also have this very popular spa:

    ".... asked for some company" is a very big YES.

    You know the US got a hip socialist in congress when no one points out the Lenin bust.

    What would McCarthy say?

    @OffSheGoes35 you mean an update on how I'm doing since my gf and I broke up over the topic of me not wanting kids?

    I'm doing great. I'm just enjoying life and doing what I want. I go to a lot of concerts. Saw Metallica a couple weeks agoI. I enjoy good whiskey so I'm always at a bar or something chatting people up, and I play a lot of golf, for pleasure and competitively, so I'm outdoors a lot. Really looking forward to heading to Chicago for the Rolling Stones this summer. I also have a couple of trips to Florida planned. Thank you for asking. 

    Edit: Oh and I'm seeing Elton John in a couple weeks. Excited for that one too.

    Yes, thank you.  

    You really are doing great! Metallica, Rolling Stones, and Elton John--how awesome is that!?! If we have breakups in this thread, I'm going to send out the Bat-Signal for @bflynn1 .  You know what you're doing. You're welcome and thank you for answering.

    Not really. Here and there. Probably spoke once in the past month. If she was keen she'd initiate conversation.

    Not sure I'd call it an invite. 
    She just told me about a musician who performs Simpsons songs live and that he was playing the night she messaged me.
    I then asked if she is going and she said yes. 
    It's not like she said "hey there's a gig tonight would you like to go with me?".

    I am actually very anxious and hesitant to try enter into any relationship.
    Why? Because I've never been in a relationship and because I've been single for so long, it would be a big change to be with someone.
    It's like I've become so used to being on my own that letting someone into my life would be a big shake up.
