I just paid bills, holy cow let's talk about my emergency need of employment! SLCL always sends the same form letter rejection, I wonder how I can get in touch with an actual person there, or otherwise better my chances at getting one of the many jobs I'm clearly not qualified for (you know, the 16-hour-a-week, $9.50-per-hour book-shelving jobs).
I went and saw THE BIRDS today (for free!) at the Hi-Pointe and Tippi Hedren was there, she got interviewed by the one TCM dude (the younger one). She praised Hitchcock's brilliance and bad-mouthed his cruelty. Apparently he ruined her career because she refused his stalkerish advances and tried to get out of her contract to him, or something. The Hi-Pointe was completely full! After the initial commercials for Charter and TCM were clearly digital I was worried this would just be some loser DVD projection but thankfully it ended up being a 35mm print. Not a new one or anything, but a plenty-nice one. I think I am pretty into the ending of THE BIRDS...no explanations, no real closure, no questions answered, just BIRDS, THEY'RE EVIL, EH?
