@Yarnybarny Yow, that is a bitchy comment. I didn't mean it to be but I am sorry I made it. If I could remove it, I would.
@melis I don't want to be the wet blanket, but since I so often am, especially when it comes to movies here you go: don't go into it expecting Sandlot quality. Now and Then is fine...I guess.
I had the 1979 version and it was not in great shape. What a great, great book.
Um, not to be a stickler but the DOLCE & GABBANA football trilby has people playing soccer on it.
@cabot_cove_syndrome Hello! I also lived in Chicago (city, but far Northside) for most of my life and now live in DC. I think all of the reasons you give for loving Chicago are correct. We should be friends.
I love Chicago so much I tear up when I fly into O'Hare or drive down LSD.
Patty Griffin is the best! If you needed some suggestions for what to listen to I really like Making Pies, Forgiveness and, especially appropriate for today's weather in the DC area, Rain. I would link to these vids on YouTube if I knew how, but trust that they are excellent and worth the extra Googling to find.
Everybody hating on the Capricorns! It makes me laugh but also how wonder how it became a thing.
